“Great location, affordable price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

We spent 1 night at this cosy apartment and it was an unregrettable decision. It's mintues from Feng Jia Night Market where you can stuff yourself silly with the wide array of food. Will definitely stop by the next time!

We chose this place upon recommendations from a friend. The location was good and it was convenient to get to FengJia Night Market. We enjoyed our stay there - the room was clean and comfortable, the security was good there. The room was nicely decorated. The people at the hostel were also helpful when we required help to get around Taichung - they showed us directions to the bus-stop and also, informed us that the metro card could be used to get free trips for distances less than 8km. Hence, we used their public transport, and travelled free of charge there. It was a wonderful experience for us.

We choose Tomato Rooms because it is located near Fengjia Night Market. The room is clean and nice and the security in the apartment is good too. Staff were very friendly and you can ask them for tours around Tai Chung.

It helps to write down their contact number and address to pass to your taxi driver as many drivers didnt know how to go there also.

Overall, we were satisfied with our stay here.

Absolutely good deal!

Service - Reception is across the building, always don't seem to be able to find staff. However, the whole booking process (via email) was prompt and informative.
Value - Definitely a steal!
Location - 5mins walk to Feng Jia Night Market.
Rooms - 705, 紫色詩人. Looks exactly like what I saw on their FB album.

P.S. The room came with café breakfast voucher near the hostel, nothing fancy. But nearby there's a pushcart stall selling rice ball - filled with preserved vegetable, minced meat, 油条, fried egg... must try!

Tomato Rooms has no shopfront and the rooms are in a building housing single rooms. To book the rooms, you have to pay the entire sum by Paypal, which made me a bit worried but it all turned out fine in the end. You just have to inform them what time you will be arriving and call them again when you reach the lane on which it's situated so that they can send someone out to get you and pass you the keys. The location is great, with Feng Jia Night Market a short walk away, although it is about 45 minutes away by bus from the train station. Yizhong Street shopping area is about 20 minutes away by bus. Take bus 35 from the main road. The rooms also come with breakfast, which can be claimed from a shop downstairs. All in all, a great place to stay!

Tomato Rooms are actually studio apartments rented out as hostel rooms. The location is very convenient given its close proximity to Feng Jia night market. The hostel even provided us breakfast coupons to a small restaurant around the corner. There is even a laundry shop next door that you may drop off laundry and pick up later in the day. The rooms are clean and safety is not an issue. Would definitely recommend to others.
