The location is excellent, very close to convenient stores and for sight seeing. Walkable distance from train station.
The layout of bathroom is very unusual, the shower is right next to the bathroom door so the floor is wet. A lot of noise from the street. Paper cup provided instead of real cup.
Rainbow Island is a quaint little place located in Chonggeng Road. It is within close proximity to several gems in Tainan. I enjoyed the walks I took around the property, and the accessibility to some good food and souvenir shops. The property was kept clean and promptly maintained each day. The owner gave us very clear instructions via email and WhatsApp on how to access the location and with regards to check in. He was also very prompt with his responses to our queries.
While it met our basic needs, Rainbow Island is not the place for everyone. Firstly, it is located in a building with no lifts. While this information is made known clearly to us in the description, we weren't aware of how steep and narrow the staircase was until we had to carry our luggages up to our room. After a certain point on the staircase, it took plenty of strategising to find a way to get our luggages past the stairs. This is not entirely the owner's fault as Tainan is known to be a traditional place that has retained most of its culture and old architecture. Given the old facades and designs of the building, it would take much renovation to extend the staircases. Secondly, we noticed that at the end of the shower, the water wouldn't drain very easily. The showerhead is also right at the entrance of the bathroom with the toilet at the back of it. This means that there is no differentiation between wet and dry areas in the bathroom. The sink was rather tiny (1/2 the size of a usual sink). If you're a solo traveller, these areas can certainly be overlooked and you can make it through your stay at Tainan in Rainbow Island. If you have physical ailments , this isn't the place for you.
Bathroom too small
Convenient to buy the authentic midnight snack, clean, cozy, beautiful
Will, with an awkward distance, walking to train station is a little bit far but taxi is not valuable.
Good - mad comfortable bed with clean sheets. Better than hotels that cost 4x during my Taiwan trip. Very good location. Host was contactable. Easy to get keys. Easy to leave luggage for early arrival, just let them know.
The cheap - colourful and small toilet.
A stay at Rainbow Island B&B places you in the heart of Tainan, within a 15-minute walk of Chihkan Tower and National Cheng Kung University.
