I chose "Fullon Hotel Danshuei Fisher Men's Wharf" because it was in a distance that I could travel from Taipei and I have heard that you can enjoy delicious cuisine at this hotel and the location was the best in the tamsui area. It is about 40 minutes by MRT from Taipei city, which is easier to access than going to Taichung or Tainan. In addition, not just Taiwanese cuisine, various kind of world wide cuisine campaigns are held at the restaurant in this hotel. The view of the tamsui's sunrise and sunset is perfect and you can enjoy a nice view from the hotel balcony.
Exterior, entrance, and reception
The hotel has the largest number of rooms in Tamsui, and the building designed like a large ship is very unique. It is a pure white wall, light up at night, color changes depending on time, and mood is also good.
The hotel seems to have a bicycle rental service.
The lobby is a spacious. In addition to the front desk, there are many chairs and tables for relaxing. You can use this hotel for a wedding and there is a reception space in the lobby.
There are two staff at the front desk.

A view of the room seen from window side
There was a sofa and a table at the side of the bed and the window.
Snacks were on the table.
A desk and a chair were also there.
I am 180cm tall and muscular but it was enough big bed of space-free, even when I lie down. The bed was not too hard, it was not too soft, and I could have a good sleep.
There is a TV set on the opposite the bed.
There was a balcony in the guest room. Since the balcony has a table and a chair, please have a cup of tea and coffee from the room and enjoy it here for a little luxurious moment.
I highly recommend to reserve a room with sea view.
The greatest charm of this hotel is the sea view in front of you. When you come out to the balcony of the room, you can see the sea which continues endless, you can enjoy different kind of scenery of the sea from the morning to night.
There was a bathtub in bathroom. In addition, there was a shower room separate from bathtub.
The water pressure of the shower is perfect. The size of the shower head is just as my fist. Regarding temperature adjustment, you adjust the temperature by turning the steering wheel of the shower handle.
There was a bathtub just outside the shower room and the temperature of water was fine, and water pressure of the bathtub water was strong enough. Me being 180cm tall but the bathtub was enough big for putting my legs straight, although I bend my knees a bit. There is a twist for hot water and another one for cold water, and the mechanism is to adjust the temperature of the water using both of them.
Amenity has L'Occitane shampoo, rinse, body soap and body lotion. Besides, soap, hair brush, cotton swab, toothbrush and razor for shaving were prepared. I used the soap for hand washing, but foaming was fine without problems. The toothbrush had toothpaste, and the razor was coming with shaving cream.
L'Occitane's Five Herbs series which uses French Provencal herbs. Not only scent but also foaming was good.
There was also a hair dryer.
Closet and Safety Deposit Box
The closet was on the right side of the entrance.
There were five hangers in the closet, there were also sandals and clothes for the room, a safety deposit box, and an iron and ironing board.
Safety box was the regular one you sets four digits of the number you like. The operation method was easy.
The size was 25cm in width, 15cm in height and 40cm in depth.
There was also in-room coffee. Because 2 bottles of water are always in stock, you can enjoy tea and coffee with this water instead of tap water.
There was not only an electric kettle, but also a capsule type of coffee maker.
Four kinds of tea such as oolong tea, green tea, brown rice tea, and oriental beauty tea are placed.
2 coffee cups
Inside of the refrigerator
Restaurant and shop in the hotel
There was "Arcadia Cafe" on the second floor.
At "Arcadia Cafe" you can enjoy your meal in a buffet style.
Depending on the time, Thai cuisine fairs etc. are also held, and you can enjoy green curry or somtum (papaya's salad) etc.
I had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant.
It was rich in variety and all was delicious.
Fish and shellfish such as crab and shrimp were also lining up.
There is spring roll as well.
Hot pot with beef
There are plenty of desserts too.
Haagen Dazs ice cream was also prepared.
There was also a chocolate fondue at the dessert section.
Facilities in the hotel
There was an outdoor pool on the 3rd floor of the hotel. If you do not bring swimwear, you can purchase swimwear at the reception on the 3rd floor. It is open from 7:00 to 22:00. It is good to enjoy the pool early in the morning and the night while enjoying the night view.
Athletic facilities for children are also available, and all the families can enjoy the pool. The shower rooms and changing rooms were right next to the pool. Staff is always on the poolside, so safety is also okay.
There was a gym on the 3rd floor of the hotel. Guests seem to be able to use it for free. It is open from 7:00 to 22:30.
There was a spa on the 3rd floor of the hotel. There seems to be a sauna and so on.
There was a business center on the second floor of the hotel.
If you want to buy tamsui specialties, there are several shops near the hotel. Apart from the shops, Starbucks is right next to the hotel so you can try Taiwan's limited tumbler and limited drinks.
Most of the attraction spots around the hotel are about 10 minutes by taxi from the Fort San Domingo. Also, tamsui retro town (Tamsui Old Town) is also about a 10 minute taxi ride away, so please try sightseeing in conjunction along with Fort San Domingo.
Staff & Customers
Upon arrival at the hotel, the staff carefully carried my baggage to the front desk. They took me to the seats in the restaurant and taught the location of the bathroom when I was looking for them. Basically all the staff were kind and I embraced comfortable service.
There are many Taiwanese families, followed by Taiwanese couples and western tourists. Overall 80% of the guests are families.
From Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, take the train first to Taipei Station, change to Tamsui line and get off at Tamsui Station at the end (40 minutes from the airport to Taipei Station, 40 minutes from Taipei station to Tamsui station). It is approximately 15 minutes by taxi from Tamsui Station.
As it is in residential area with parks, I recommend doing some shopping around Tamsui Station. Public safety is good because the park side is full of lights and crowded with people walking around. However, the other side is residential area and there is little traffic, so it is better not to go as much as possible at night.
There are large parks and restaurants around the hotel, and there are simple souvenir shops. If you came to Tamsui, please also visit Tamsui Retro Town (Tamsui Old Street) which is one of the popular tourist destinations of Tamsui. It is about ten minutes by taxi from the hotel.
I think I enjoyed my stay at this hotel sincerely from the bottom of my heart.
First of all, comfort of the room comes to the top. The room was spacious, the bed was large, and it was very comfortable. The room was very clean and it was very relaxing. We could have coffee while watching the morning sunr and the night view, and I was able to have luxury time which I can not usually have.
Next, there was a restaurant where you can enjoy delicious food. Thick beef steak, fresh raw fish, Beijing duck, hot pot with beef, more than 10 kinds of sweets, everything was delicious. Not just dinner, I ate until I became full at breakfast too.
Finally, it is a nice environment around the hotel. After eating, I went out to the plaza around the hotel to take a walk, and the lighted-up plaza, bridge and fishing booth were very beautiful and the sea breeze was comfortable.
