We spent 4D3N at this hotel during our visit to Taichung. The hotel was conveniently located next to Taichung train station, took us about 3 mins walk to get there. We had no trouble finding the place.
Check-in was smooth; we got our room very fast. We stayed at 12th floor which was the highest, specially requested that as I am a light sleeper. It was a wise choice (proven), as the traffic was very busy out there. We still can hear noises at night. The room was nicely designed but small. Bed was ok, two pillows were provided. For extra pillow, you need to call the reception, which I did. They sent the pillow within 30 mins. However, the pillows were too soft; I had a so-so sleep for 3 nights. The room temperature controller was not functioning; it did not correspond to the temperature adjusted. The bathroom came with head shower, no bathtub.
Breakfast was served at their restaurant – Sunny House (2nd floor). Variety was ok but not tasty. There was a laundry room (self-service, chargeable) located at the basement together with business centre. We went down to explore, nobody was around.
Moving around was easy and inexpensive with few bus terminals around. Be careful of the bus routes as they could be very confusing. It’s best to ask the staffs. We also took a bus to Sun Moon Lake at one of the terminals (see picture) near the hotel. Taxis were everywhere in the street if you don’t feel like taking a bus.
There were many shops around, with a convenient store (7-11) at the corner. For a quick bite, you can go to McDonalds opposite; next to it was a book store named Noble; they have good variety of Chinese books. If you don’t fancy Western food, there were many local eateries around. There were few shops selling Taichung souvenirs (famous sun biscuits – Taiyangbing, assorted cakes, etc) but we found the best at Nine Suns, about 5 mins walk from Noble Bookstore (same role).
This is an average hotel with good location.
