She was willing to answer my questions and helped me to plan my short trip in SML. + The room is spacious and clean, and the bed is cozy. + The breakfast which is the set menu of the rice soup and the side dish was great. - It is located a little far from the Itatao pier, but it is near the cable car station.

      I made the reservation in December 2018. Thereafter, I started thinking of cancelling because it’s not located in 水社. However, many times searching for other hotels in sun moon lake, Yuan-Su Inn seems better then other as compared. That day when we reached there, the host and he family’s warmest welcoming us, the the room that they prepared, i know, my choice is right.

      Best bet at Sun Moon Lake”

      Having never been to Sun Moon Lake, and hoping to enjoy the scenery without too many other tourists, this inn was PERFECT! Not only was it clean, cute (with many whimsical owl decorations) and comfortable, it also was located in the small town of Ita Thao. This turned out to be exactly where we were happy: not nearly as much commerce or people as Shuishe, the larger town on the lake. The staff at Yuan Su could not have been nicer. They inquired each day about our plans, and offered guidance as needed. They were attentive to our needs. They were friendly without being intrusive. They also have a very cute little dog. The location even within Ita Thao is away from the waterfront, so the street is quiet. Yet it is just a few steps away from the lakeside walkway. And we had a view of the lake from our room! Room even had a balcony. Bonus! We stayed during the week, and yet still the place felt relatively empty. It deserves to be full. Try this place out!

      Innkeeper went beyond call of duty for which we are very grateful. ”

      We chose Yuan-Su Inn for : - its location in the old town of Itashao - proximity to a scenic walkway and the ropeway (cable car) station to Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village, and, - its value for money for a 4 bedded room with an adjoining living room. The innkeeper, his wife and children run the inn, keeping it homely yet modern. The inn is new (built in 2015) and it has a lift with a useful lift-door-hold button. What surprised us was the promptness of the innkeeper in offering us a ride to the nearest hospital at Puli when our child needed an emergency CT Scan which the local Emergency Clinic at Itashao could not provide. He insisted in waiting at the hospital with us and helped us check the administrative procedures. Luckily, our child could be discharged and we could continue with our travel plans. All in, the innkeeper spent close to 5 hours, ferrying us there and back. And yet he refused our token of appreciation. This good review is the least we can do for him.

      Excellent”

      This small inn is run by a very friendly family. Breakfast is light and simple. The innkeeper always wear a smile and tell you to eat more. Room is cozy with a balcony. Our room has a view of the Sun Moon Lake which is quite unexpected for this room rate. Room is clean and shower is hot. Easy access to the "shop & eat" streets. We are driving and the inn has a private parking lot for guests which is an extra convenient. Both sides of the streets nearby are parked with cars of holiday-makers. Need to by extra careful driving or walking.

      Excellent hotel”

      This hotel is one of the best I have stayed at. The staff are SOOOO friendly and helpful. The place is really clean and very quiet. It is only a 5 minute walk from main road and 5 minute walk to the village pier and market. Breakfast was excellent value for money. Help yourself. This hotel had such an amazing feeling about it. Rooms were big size. Would highly recommend this hotel. If you get the bus to sun moon lake. It drops you off at main village. You need to get round lake bus 30nt one way to other side of lake about 20 minutes.

      Great experience. It's clean, comfortable with excellent location. Love the traditional breakfast!”

      Highly recommended if you're looking for a place to stay, and you don't want to spend for a ridiculous expansive hotel room in sun moon lake. The hostel is located close to the market, harbour, and bus stop with 5-10 min walk. The staff were helpful and friendly. Couldn't ask for more!

      Homely place”

      This was a really homely accommodation and it was really nice! There's actually no point in staying overnight at Sun Moon Lake because there's barely anything to do here but if you feel like doing so anyway, this accommodation is quite a decent one!

      Great place to stay in Ita Thao pier”

      Definitely one of the must stay places in Sun Moon Lake. Room was spacious and well-maintained though the lake view was limited. Breakfast was nice too!
