Tainan is the birthplace of Taiwan and the oldest city on the island. In 1661, the Ming loyalist Cheng Cheng-kung drove the Dutch from Taiwan and established his administration in Tainan.
After the Qing pacification of Taiwan in 1683, the Taiwan Prefectural Capital was established in Tainan. In 1885, Taiwan became a province and Tainan's position changed to that of Tainan Prefectural Capital, from which its current name derives. Tainan remained the political, economic and cultural center of Taiwan up to the late nineteenth century. As a result, Tainan is home to many famous historic sites. It also is the city with the longest history and earliest cultural roots in Taiwan.

- Looks really new.
- No bad smells in the apt.
- Ady was helpful.
- Family Mart right next to the apt.
- No wifi or internet in the apt, Ady provides (and charge you for it) a sim card with internet service, so if your devices need wifi, you can't use them (unless Ady lends a cell phone as he did with us).
- Off-site deposit of NT$3000 (violating AirBnB terms).
- The apartment was too dirty, nobody cleaned it for sure, it had a lot of dirt all around, even the main table!
- Only Chinesse/Taiwanese TV.
- The bathroom shower is not contained, so when you take a shower everything gets wet (toilet, floor...).
- Really little towels.
- Neighborhood stinks a lot and is really dirty.
- We needed a 2 bed and Ady put a kind of pad at the floor for as, but it was the same as sleep on the floor (my back still hurts, i can't even move my neck...).
- We found a live cockroach at the main room.
I don't recommend this place at all.
The star I gave to this listing is just because its required.
“Clean and comfortable living environment” which is the most dedicated and the most important issues we provide to visitors, we even recommend our guests to take off their shoes when entering the room, to proof of our house is very clean, in fact the most of guests who praise our house is very clean! I regret you feel the different!
On the other hand, we offer one bedroom, one queen size bed for 2 guests stay in Tainan apartment, but you require two beds for 2 persons, I mention that there is no second bed, you said that you could sleep on the sofa, I even try to give you special providing a single futon in the study room, (it already communicated with you in advance also), I don’t know why you complained for this?
I had told before that our apartment did not provide WIFI access, but will provide a 3G sin card into our guests’ phone for internet use, but did not expect your cell phone can not be used with Taiwan sin card, it made you very upset, you know that I really try my best to help and solve the problem, finally I lent you our private smart phone (it worth NT$ 9000) for your Internet use, but requires only NT$ 3000 deposit for our smart phone, you think that is in violating Airbnb terms, and try refused to pay, actually our private phone is not belong to the rental apartment, so deposit requirement is reasonable, and you can 100% get it back when check-out, I don’t understand why made you unhappy? (this situation I had explained to airbnb)
I think~Based on the above several things, make you very unhappy, prompted you with intent picky to our apartment, in attempt to damage our excellent reviews, we feel really upset and sorry for that. In fact, for a hypercritical and difficult to communicate with person like you, I even did not give you any negative evaluation.
everything was as described, so it can be recommended without compunction, including the kind host. If you want to use internet be prepared to leave a deposit of 3000 NTD
