“Not bad for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Helpful staff at check in.

Standard sized room, but no views except next door building. The bed was comfortable and refreshing sleep. Only CNN channel that I could find on the TV.

Room service was quick and quality good, if a little spartan. Beef tenderloin came on a plate- but that was it, nothing else on the plate, nothing!

The best thing about the hotel is that there is a gym over two floors, with good equipment and well looked after by staff. Well done!!

The quadruple penthouse is on the highest floor of the hotel. It has 2 single beds and a toilet on the lower level while a king bed and a bigger toilet on the upper level. The package includes breakfast for 4 persons. The penthouse room also includes the free minibar. Upon arrival in the room, there are also fruits and a packet of biscuits for consumption.

There are many choices for the breakfast, ranging from Taiwanese porridge to inter-continental style.

A pity that we have do not have time to try out the facilities a the Mandara Life Club.

The hotel is located in the central of Taichung City, lot of shops, restaurants and shopping centre around. Nice place to stay for business and leisure travellers.

Check in and Check out were efficient and fast, bell boys are friendly and efficient. The room size is Ok and clean, bathroom is also more than acceptable.

There are quite a lot of choices for breakfast and the taste is good. Staffs are helpful and approachable.

Though the building is quite old, but it is newly renovated and the ambience and atmostphere was great.

Overall, given its quality of hotel and location, the price is still reasonable.

Very nice classy hotel at the middle of Taichung city, with restaurants and shopping only minutes away by car. The room and bathroom was spacious and clean, only complaint is the bed was a bit uncomfortable. They included access to a local gym + swimming pool + kids club which were all top-notch! Breakfast was also surprising good!

This hotel is perfect. Big comfortable King bed, clean wrinkle free, high quality, white sheets, selection of pillows - feather, rubber, anything you want they will get for you, luxury bathroom, (towels a bit thin, could be better but ok) great shower, huge bath, great mirrors and water pressure, nice soaps and everything you might need. Perfect desk - big granite topped, good lights, good chair, phone has volume control, 2 lines. Good for working in your room. Armchair with ottoman is perfect. Housekeeping turned up the hem on my trousers within 2 hours! Freee water. Immediate concierge help on anything. Free wi-fi. Buffet breakfast included is excellent - big selection, eggs cooked just right the Western way, beautiful fruits, rest staff. Buffet at night is very good, and only $500NT. Hotel is packed with foreigners and Taiwanese and all seem very happy. (Check in was not very friendly, no smiles, but very efficient.) I love this hotel. The housekeeping, concierge, restaurant and room service staff are exceptionally good. I recommend it for business or holiday travel. Close to many shops, cafes and the business area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with plenty of light. Corner rooms are best.

This is one of those hotel when you open the door you walked in and you feel relaxed, very ready to just wind down. Big comfy bed, clean white sheets, good size room and bathrooms.
Wifi is also good, breakfast selection is decent and friendly service. Above all, it is located in the city centre...so a definite YES i will come back in the future if I do need to return to Taichung :)
Thumbs up!

The Tempus Hotel location is very good for who wants to visit all the most important places in the City Center. The building is modern and the Hotel has all the most important facilities for who wants to relax and enjoy its stay in Taichung and in particular a very nice swimming pool.
My room was spacious, quite, beautiful and modern; big wardrobe and desk, very clean bathroom: everything excellent.
I had breakfast and lunch in the restaurant at the ground floor. The service was fast and kind, the food good, but the choice a little bit limited. Some of the seats were not completly confortable, because too much low from the ground, for me (medium "size").
The hotel people were particulary helpful and gave me a lot of information about Taichung transportations, day and night life, museums, etc...
The rate quality of service/price very good.
