“Simple hotel but good service”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Just spent a night in this hotel. Looked very much like a budget hotel from the outside, but internally was well maintained and clean. The staff were polite and always helpful. Breakfast spread was simple but tasty. Welcome drink directly delivered to your room.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel which is in a convenient location with the shops around and a bus stop in front of it. Staff are polite and helpful, going above and beyond to proactively recommend sightseeing spots in Taichung and never failing to assist us with our luggage and heavy items. The room is comfortable and their welcome drink is a bonus. There are many sockets for charging our electrical devices which is especially crucial for a traveler. We would like to come back again.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a family room, the room is spacious. There was a living room, 2 queen sized beds and 2 LCD TVs. The bed is really comfy and i love how big the bathroom is. The stay is pleasant. But, i think the lighting system might be go wrong, it turned on by itself several times at night which really freaked us out! And then went normal again in the day time.

The staffs were lovely and gorgeous (yes they really are). We get free drinks upon arrival for each of us. Not sure if all of the hotels in TW are the same, they don't help you deliver your luggages or bags to your room.

Buffet breakfast has big variety, great scrambled eggs, but no fruits.

Absolutely love the location, it's about 15-20 minutes walk to Fengjia night market. We took a cab there for about 5 minutes at NTD85. The hotel is near to Shinkong Mitsukoshi department store too if you want to shop for some luxury goods.

This hotel is nicely located in Taichung. The Feng Chia Night Market is a 15 minute walk and there are several good restaurants within a 5 minute walk The staff is helpful. There are a few on the late night staff that go above and beyond with translating Mandarin to English on some interesting documents about Buddhism. My thanks to the staff for being so helpful.

Room Tip: No pool and I did not use the spa so treat these ratings as non-existent.

The hotel is a little gem with very quiet surroundings. Welcoming drinks were served and the room come with all basic amenities, but the air ventilation is slightly poor. It is located not far away from Fengjia night market (approximate 5 minutes with taxi, 20 minutes walk). The staffs were not only friendly but extremely helpful. Don't forget to get the self-made map with local attractions, food and shopping mall marked. They were also very considerate to help us prepare 'take away' breakfast as we are leaving early in the morning to catch train to Taipei.

We stayed in Hotel Dion Taichung for 2 nights (8th July - 10th July). Costs about SGD 665 for 2 rooms (1 four people room & 1 three people room) for a group of 7 for 2 nights. We booked via Agoda.

Service:
We reached the hotel about 8plus after our tour from Cingjing to Taichung.

Upon arrival, the hotel staff already knew who we are and how many people. Maybe we are the last to check-in :P Nevertheless, impression of this = GOOD!

The staff is friendly and the check-in is fast. Welcome drink offered upon arrival in the room.

The staff also took the effort to help me check out the location of a shop which I wanted to go to. She wrote down the address for me and also informed me the directions.

Location:
Location is quiet but a distance away from Fengjia Night Market for the shopping. We have to walk about 20mins to reach Fengjia Night Market. However, we will usually take a cab back to the hotel as it is only 5 mins away via cab and costs about NT90-100 only.

If shopping is your main purpose, this hotel is not for you. Better to choose another hotel near Fengjia Night Market instead.

Facilities/Rooms:
The corridor is dimly lighted, same as in the room which is not my preference. I prefer my room to be brightly lighted.

Room is very spacious! It is separated into beds and a sofa area. There is also a bathtub in our 4 people room too. Toiletries are available such as shower foam, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaver etc. Hairdryer is available too. Fridge and safe are also available.

Don’t throw toilet paper in the toilet bowl. Ours got stuck one morning and the water starts to overflow!!! The housekeeper took a little long to come and resolve. The water already resided when the housekeeper reached. >.<

Breakfast is included with the cost. Breakfast spread is average.

Overall:
Average. If there is 2.5 stars, I will rate it for 2.5 stars instead. Might or might not stay again since it is not near Fengjia Night Market or any other attractions. Stayed in this hotel as other hotels near Fengjia NM was fully booked. Not worth the cost paid. Service is average though friendly. Might be able to find another hotel at a lower cost. But if you like your surroundings to be quiet, this is a place to be at!

We found a little gem in Hotel Dion in our very first trip to Taiwan with Taichung as the first stop. What the hotel lacked in facilities (only one food outlet where they serve a buffet breakfast) was made up in the fantastic service we got. The girls (throughout our 3 days there we only saw women service staff) were fabulous! They were not only friendly but extremely helpful - our Mandarin was enough to get us by but we needed suggestions on where to go and restaurants to visit. The reception staff gave us a superb recommendation for dinner - a Japanese grill room. Overall facilities were good - the rooms were comfortable and the bathroom facilities adequate but it was the "people" factor that made the difference!
