“Chateau de Chine (new name)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Very nice newly renovated hotel situated 3 minutes walk from Yanchengpu Station. The staff is friendly and very professional. Short walk to Ai He (Love river) at night will bring you to the river bank lined up with local handmade handicraft stall. On the other side of the neighborhood is mostly local shops,great place to observe the local scene if you have extra time.

The location of this hotel is not bad. Being close to the MRT, it was very connivance to travel to most parts of the city. The park beside the hotel provide a good alternative to the normal hotel gym for daily exercise. XiZiWan is just a short MRT trip away where seafood is available.. The room is nice and comfortable. Wifi is free and the signal is strong. As a whole, it a comfortable stay at this business hotel.

Please note that the hotel has been rebranded as "Chateau de Chine", and it has been fully renovated. Although there are some nice renovations, overall I would say that this hotel is at best a 4 star.

The location is a little bit out of the way. There is a subway stop within a few minutes walk, but the neighborhood seemes a little sleepy. Apparently this is one of the older districts of the city.

Rooms, like everything else in the hotel have been renovated, but you cannot change the building, which has standard ceiling heights and smallish windows. There is not much in terms of views from the hotel. Room size and bed comfort are ok. Bathroom amenities are kind of cheap. They only provided 1 set of very thin (not plush) towels. Closet was kind of small. And there is limited room service (no room service overnight).

The breakfast was alright or average. There are also a number of restaurants in the hotel, but did not try any of those. The gym is very small with just a couple of treadmills and machines. No pool, spa, locker room, or other activity rooms.

One thing that irritated me was that when I stayed there was a large tour group from China, which ruined the peaceful atmosphere in the morning, and the tour buses blocked the area so that it was not easy to get a taxi in the morning. However, at least it did not appear that those package tourists had damaged or defiled the hotel.

After searching for a room the night before we left for Kaohsiung, we decided upon Chinatrust. Upon arrival, everyone was very friendly and very helpful. Chinatrust is located conveniently next to Yanchengpu MRT station (less than a 5 minute walk). It is also within walking distance to Ai He (Love River). The hotel itself is clean and quiet. We booked our rooms online and ended up getting a free upgrade because the standard rooms were overbooked. Service was prompt and very kind. After calling down and asking for towels someone was at the doors in less than a minute with them. They were also helpful in finding the jade market and recommending food. The free breakfast was okay. By the time I got there they had run out of most of everything. They do have a good selection of Chinese, Western, and vegetarian items though.

The only complaints I had were that our room kind of smelled like smoke. Also there was a leak in our ceiling next to the entrance. The bathroom looked a little grungy, but I think it's just the age of the hotel. You could definitely find a cheaper hotel, however, this hotel is by no means expensive.

Overall, my experience at Chinatrust was a good one and I would definitely stay here again.
