Stayed here one night before heading to sun-moon-lake. The location is great as it is directly next to the train station and all the bus companies. Rooms are modern and beds comfy. Had a double room (be aware that "twin room with shared bathroom" means a bed in a dormitory!!!!) with ensuite. Even provided toileteries. However, they could improve their...

Pros: Very close to the railways station- just 2 minute walk. The Ubus bus station is so close. So many bus stops nearby. There are too many eateries, and convenient stores (such as 7/11) nearby. The breakfast was like a lunch. There are too many varieties of food and drinks in the breakfast. The toilets and bathrooms are super clean,...

There's a Starbucks about 3 mins away and...

My room has a balcony from where I could see the Taichung railway station. Location is excellent. Just across the road is the railway station. Next are many coach...

We stayed there for one night. The free parking (though a bit further away) and breakfast is a big plus. Not too fancy but considering the cost and location (very close to Taichung main station and some tourist attraction), there's not much to complain!

Booked a triple room at Chance Hotel and these were what we liked about it: - Real convenient location; just 3 mins walk to Taichung Railway Station and bus stop. Close to Kuo Kuang bus and Ubus companies so it's great for onward travel to other parts of Taiwan! - Relatively new, so everything is clean and neat! - Within...

Stayed here for 2 nights in the female dorm which was on the 3rd level of the hotel. The room was comfy enough, with a locker that could fit my cabin sized luggage. Some negetive points was probably the curtains for the bed, as they did not cover the area where the stairs to the upper bunk was, privacy was...
