This hotel is close to the railway station. There's an underpass which is short cut to the station so transit to downtown or other counties is quite convenient. However, the hotel itself has nothing to boast about. Our room service stopped the day before our checkout date and when we asked the reason the attendant asked us back if we... More

Stayed in this hotel on the 2nd June. After visited Sun Moon Lake and other places, we came back to this hotel again. Was welcome by sweet hotel staff at the lobby. Most grateful was given a clean and comfortable room , two queen size bed for 2. Made what we paid for more then worthwhile.

Very old hotel, there are new sofas at the lobby though. Staff are very strict about the check in and check out time. check in time must be at 3pm or after 3pm, check out time must be at 12pm. we tried to negotiate for late check out at 12:30 (we have 1:30 pm train tickets) but we were not...

This hotel has a rather old facade. The lobby is fairly classy, making me think that the room wouldn't be that bad. However, once I located my room, the door was totally made of an unsightly metal. Upon entering the room, I noticed that the flooring was really bad, with a carpet that looked dirty and beige tiles here and... More

I booked 4 nights online. Upon check-in I was greeted by a friendly and exceptionally professional front desk staff. My room, on the 10th floor offered nice city views. For one person I had plenty of space - two twin beds (firm bed, comfortable duvet and pillows), fridge, hot water maker, flat screen TV, a large modern bathroom with lots... More
