Stayed here in double room for 3 nights. Rooms are basic but considerably roomy. Bed is quite comfortable. Light controls are right on the bed board with electric outlet. There is not enough USB power plugs. I appreciate the friendly and helpful front desk staff. Breakfast tastes decent, with congee, white rice, side dishes, salad bar, toast and ground to brew coffee. The downside is the location. Dirty streets, many adult entertainment businesses around. It does not feel comfortable walking around to attractions or restaurant s.

The hotel is conveniently located in Taichung and within walking distance to Miyahara. Room is nicely furnished and the bed is comfortable however, both hairdryers are not functioning properly. The provision of board games and free bicycle rental at the lobby is a nice touch:)

The best sleep I have in Taiwan. The staff welcomed us with fresh hot tea in the lobby while they are processing with the payment and rooms. The hotel itself was modern and very clean. The room has a comfortable bed, very spacious, cute minimalist toiletries, clean sheets and towels everyday. There is a tv and mini fridge stocked with 2 bottles of water. The location is a 10 minute walk to Miyahara and is also close to the train station. There is no bidet and has limited space to hang our clothes. There are no cabinets for your stuff so everything was in the floor and table.

There are many hotels nearby. Pro: Location: the area used to be the centre of town but now is on a decline. Still, I like the old shops. The lobby of the hotel is comfortable. Service of the reception staff was excellent. The room is bigger than other hotels of the same rank. Con: The room is practically unfurnished for its size. There is no closet, instead, there is only a small rack with 2 clothes hangers. A small sofa in addition to the chair for the writing desk would be nice too. The rooms lights are controlled by electronic switchs that glow in the dark, and the main one is on the headboard, right next to our pillows! We had to cover it up with limited success. The corridor and room smell unpleasantly of chemical deodorant. Although our towels were changed, the bed was not made up. There were quite a lot of dishes at the breakfast buffet, but none look appetising.
