Our first hotel in Taiwan is exceed our expectation. Although looked worn from the entrance, the receptionists are friendly and helped us to move our luggage to our room. The rooms looked a bit worn too, just because the lightning in the room is quite dim but at least they're clean. It's one of the largest room we've stayed in Taiwan.
Pillow- quite thin, but normal for Taiwan's hotel standard I found out
Bed- quite hard, again, normal in Taiwan
Sheets- okay, quite clean
Bathroom/ toilet- has a tub where you stand inside to shower, hot water and current is good
Wifi- Oopss! Forgot to check!
LCD TV- Has many channels, like 100+! Including X-rated ones unfortunately.. ><
Noise level- no noise at all, but in the morning can hear renovation from next door
Green points- reusable room slippers and provides free water refills instead of mineral bottles considered green?
Curfew- no curfew, party till 4am, still can enter your rooms
Location- strategic behind Tai Chung station. Please read my long winded directions on how to get there. But it's quite far from Feng Jia Night Market, about 30 minutes, NT250 by cab.
Price- NT 1960 for four person with breakfast. It's a surprise that the receptionist told us that breakfast will be served in our room. Next morning, we get a basket of freshly prepared sandwich with boxes of milk tea delivered to our room.
There are a lot of restaurants/ street food/ stalls opposite our hotel (most probably because it's near to train station) where you can grab some food before boarding a train.
Directions to the hotel:
From Tai Chung Train Station, ask for directions to how to go to Tai Chung rear station via underpass. Their train station is quite big therefore the 'Front' and 'Rear'. You do not have to have train ticket to use the underpass. If you arrive to Tai Chung via train- do not exit first, but ask how to get to Rear part of the station. If you did not arrive by train- ask around where you can go to the rear station. Once in the underpass, follow the signboard to go 'Rear Station'. It's about 5 minute walk to the Rear Station after climbing some stairs. At the underpass exit, turn to your left into a small lane (you see the main road at front), walk to the main road, turn right into a short row of shops. Walk till the end and you will see the lane to the Rear Station on your right. Look across the road and you will see the hotel sign board. It's quite small, you might miss it. The hotel is adjacent with a bank.
