About A Touch of Zen Guesthouse

A Touch of Zen offers travelers a rare opportunity to spend a night in a home built during the Japanese colonial era and restored to reflect design and decor of that period. The decor includes images drawn from the Taiwan film scene from the Japanese era through the 1980s.

Facilities will include a traditional tatami room, a small dorm room for backpackers, a room furnished as it might have been in the 1960s, a communal kitchen, 2 full baths, a guest lounge, and a washer and dryer. There is also a larger lounge where cocktails and light snacks are sometimes served, and films can be projected on a large screening wall.

Location Information

This neighborhood was once a housing compound for high ranking Japanese military officers, and many of the homes date from that period and share a similar old world charm. We are walking distance from some of the best (and cheapest) local restaurants in Kaohsiung, as well as picturesque alleys that still retain the feel of what Taiwan was like 40-50 years ago. Also nearby is the Lotus Pond, with its picturesque Dragon and Tiger Pavilions, the Hallo Wet Market, and many colorful temples.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 7 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
