“Boring and aging”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

The hotel has most of the basics but not much plusses. It is less than 5 minutes from the (old) Taichung Railway Station which is the main plus for this hotel. The Railway station area is the main (only?) hub for buses and trains (except the HSR). This was our reason to choose this hotel.

The room was not decent size (Deluxe Double). The hotel clearly has been around for an extensive time and is starting to show its age. There is not breakfast provided and in our case the room was not tended to one out of 3 nights (although we were at least 13 hours away).

Overall we would recommend to try to find a more modern / newer hotel that is in walking distance from the Railway Station

Female staff was very friendly, she worked in the rmonign afternoon shift.
At night when we checked in , we were attended by the male staff, very friendly too. Let us use their phone to call my another hotel to check with them about my bookings. The previous night when stayed at KDM hotel, they told us to pay 88 twd for 3 minutes call.

Pros:
Good Location (5 min walk from taichung raiway station), Friendly Staff, Clean Room, wifi super good, water pressure good and get hot easily
Cons:
Room small 13m2, can hear next door shower and bath and talk

Room Tip: Choose deluxe room

Found this place had modern rooms and very clean but small. Upgraded to deluxe room for more space but still small, and with no windows could feel a bit closed in. Staff helpful and some spoke English. No breakfast. Internet good in room. 5 min walk from train station and buses to Lukang or sun moon lake. Did notice some comings and goings at night.

wifi available in room and very stable. located very near to taichung railway station. 10 minutes walking distance. quite easy to locate hotel and lobby is small yet cozy. room is of appropriate size for 2 with a very comfortable bed to fall sleep on easily. toilet is clean and looks new to me. not much things around the hotel region, since it's the older part of taichung, but there is a nice breakfast place around the corner selling traditional taiwanese breakfast. (thumbs up!!!) to travel to shopping centre like sogo, need to take bus or cab. 20 miuntes to walk from hotel to yi zhong night market with lots of food and nice drinks. night market also has some shops to look look see see. need to take cab from hotel to the taichung famous feng jia night market. overall, very satisfied with this hotel stay!

It is a small room indeed. But only cost hkd 900 (booked via agoda) as a budget hotel that only for a sleep is acceptable. Not too new but not too old. Not too clean but not too dirty. But you may hear next door light switch.

However location is good that many food store around with family-mart in the corner. It cost approx NT200 f4om Taichung HSR station and approx NT200 to famous night market (逢甲).

This is a small hotel located in a good location, there are plenty of eateries (little Vietnam) and a Family-Mart just right next to it. There is also a popular soya and youtiao shop around the corner of the hotel It is also a love hotel judging from the number of movements in the day time.

The sound proofing of hotel is average, I can distinctly hear loud noises in the early morning from my room. The room is rather small as well.

Other wise, this is a hotel for one or two night stay if you are just looking for a roof above your head for sleeping at night.
