“Nice Garden View Hotel”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We were with a tour group and were told not to expect too much from the hotel but as it turned out the hotel was quite good. We were given two rooms next to each other and one was a corner unit on a high floor. Space for the corner unit was really huge.

The hotel seemed to be renovated recently and the rooms looked quite new. Our rooms faced the park just across the road. Traffic noise was minimal. The beds were good and we had a really good night sleep.

Breakfast was quite good but don't expect much western type of food as this is Taiwan. The park across the road was nice and we had a quick stroll after breakfast before we moved on with our tour itinerary.

Not sure about the hotel rate but the impression is this hotel is really quite good. Staff were friendly and helpful as well. Can consider staying here if location from the night markets is not a major factor.

Room is spacious and clean. Our basic standard room has no windows and we had a good quiet sleep. Considerably a convenient location. It is along main road, beside 7-Eleven, short walking distance (5min) to rows of shops and food stalls. Booking of buses to other places is within 5min walk.
It is quite ok to walk to Taichung Train station if it is not raining. About 10-15 walk. Alternatively could take public bus which is 1-2stop away. Taking bus is a breeze if you can read Chinese. Below 8km no deduction from EasyCard, it's cool! (u can use card to travel on mrt and buses in Taiwan and some trains.) we took bus to Science Centre which is less than 15min. A place worth going (but all in Chinese).
We receive excellent service from the staff. Friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: Room without window is cheaper but is good too!

hotel staffs are very helpful. they reply your email very quick. Better book a room directly with the hotel web site to save some hidden tax and handling fee charged you from the agent web site. The hotel is clean and quiet. i think that the construction of the room is insulating well, i cannot hear people from next door. Cannot see many tourists from mainland china nor did i see group tourists from mainland china, which is good!! the hotel also provide free parking for customer. will definitely stay in this hotel again in future.

Room Tip: ask for a room not facing the main road.

An average level business hotel in the city center. Not much services in the hotel (no bar), but the 7 eleven next door offered beer and soft drinks. many discos and night bars around in the neighbourhood, but no noise in to the rooms. Very attractive park was just the oposite of the main entrance. Safe to go day and night.
The breakfast was a little strange for an European, but however I managed with coffee, juice and toast. The staff was English speaking and friendly. They accepted me to drink my own beers in the lobby when using their business center desk. My view was against the next building but I never expected more. Really recommendable hotel for business travelling.

Room Tip: You must ask a room to face the park when need a view from your room.

The staff was nice and helpful but their English was very limited, so communication qas a bit difficult. The room was clean, but nothing fancy: It could maybe use some up-dating. But there was some construction going on in the hotel, so might be that they are just about renovating all the rooms.
all in all the hotal was good value for the money I paid and the rate even included breakfast
The hotel was quite close to the train station and just across Taichung park, all other sights were a little further away.

This hotel was probably recently renovated. The rooms are a bit on the small side but it was comfortable enough. The beds are really comfortable, but could do with extra pillows. Open concept toilets so sharing a room might be a bit awkard. When booking a room, we selected 'rooms with windows with view of city and garden'. What we got was rooms with a small window with view of the next building. So I am guessing most rooms do not have much of a view. Checking in was a breeze. I booked online and requested a twin and a double room and also for interconnecting rooms or rooms on the same level. When we arrived, we were told by the front desk that the twin rooms and double rooms are on different floors, so they were unable to put us on the same floor. However, they were nice enough to give us a twin and a 'triple' room, side by side, instead.

Breakfast was quite pathetic and I wouldn't recommend it. On our second day, we went to the 7-Eleven and had breakfast there and it was better.

Overall, this hotel is ok but the staff do not speak much English and it's location is a little inconvenient, but it is good value for money.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of December 2011 and found it to be quite pleasant. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the Taichung Railway Station, right across from the park. We arrived at the Railway Station quite late at night, but we had a piece of paper with the name of the park written on it as well as the address and we just kept asking people along the way. It definitely helps to have the park name written down as well, since everyone seemed to know about it.

There is a 7 Eleven on the corner, right next to the hotel. The lobby was spacious and modern. The staff were friendly. We checked in with no problems and was able to settle in our room quite quickly.

The biggest problem with the room was it's open concept. This is called a business hotel, but yet the room was pretty much in the shape of a square with 2 twin beds in 2 of the corners, the shower in a 3rd corner and the toilet in another corner. The sink was in between the shower and the toilet, but was open. The doors to the shower and toilet were not full doors that stretched from the ceiling to the floors, so you can pretty much hear everything if you're in the room.

Having said this, the room itself was very clean and the beds were great. They also give you 2 free bottles of water a day, plus a selection of tea bags and coffee in the room. Of course, they also have free wireless internet in the room as well.

Overall, I'd recommend this hotel to couples, families and even friends, but if you're traveling on business, I don't think the open bathroom concept would make it too convenient.
