“Good Service & Great Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in their Classic Room from 03 Jan 2014 to 06 Jan 2014. Good location and the front office staffs are excellent. They are friendly and helpful in acceding our requests. But Wifi coverage require improvement as the signal is quite weak. Overall was a good stay.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Situated just above Fengjia night market, so its very convenient! Room is clean and in good size, staff are very friendly too. Breakfast was very limited though and quite average otherwise everything is good.

Dec 2013, we stayed in this hotel. It is very near the night market. 逢甲夜市. We stayed in room with two single bed and one king sized bed. The room is big and clean toilet. But the room air conditioner only has cold air no heater. It was quite cold in dec. Overall the room is clean. Breakfast, typical taiwanese style. Limited choice if you looking for western breakfast.

This hotel is located right next what I consider one of the best night market in Taiwan (10 second walk). I was here on business for just one day but it was very enjoyable.

The Good:
- Location which also make it really easy to get a taxi
- Hotel is clean
- Free Breakfast (good selection)
- Sever is good.
- Free Wifi

The not so good:
- The room is on a smaller side
- No Iron in room but if you ask they will bring you one
- Noisy Street if window is open or if you are on lower floors

The entrance to the hotel is not large (next to MacD), I would stay here again you can't beat the location.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors.

I usually stay at Hotel One when I'm in Taichung for business. But I had to stay one night in Beacon so as to meet up with my sis & her family to tour other parts of TC. Like what other reviewers said, choose Beacon for the fantastic location. Don't choose it if you need a bit more space in the room. The toilet is really quite small. For the price you pay, can't be too choosy.
The hotel staff in the day time is nice & polite. However, I checked in after midnight. The staff on duty at that time looks like they could be part timers.. Not in uniform and not your usual young & chirpy hotel receptionist. I still give it a v good rating based on location and cleanliness.

2 thumbs up ... Super duper near the night market. We stayed in the room for 4. Spacious room ... Just that toilet is tiny, but ok lah. Eat, rest & shop ... If I go Taichung again ... I'll book Beacon again.

The location of the hotel is awesome. It is just directly above Fengjia night market. You decide yourself whether it is the end of the beginning of the night market but it doesn't make any difference because you will still explore the whole Fengjia anyway!

Hotel is very clean with pleasant room. Room is not as spacious as I thought even though I booked the corner room, but still not bad for 2 person. Do take note that you cannot add extra bed in this hotel. We had 2 rooms and we had 3 pax in one of the room. We can still squeeze in to share the bed but I thought would be good if they can add on extra bed.

Breakfast variety is so-so! Staff is friendly and attentive. Overall, pleasant stay!
