Disappointing for a 5 star hotel. No latest gadgets and facilities. Average room but above average price tag.

Bathroom is big enough and most of things are not bad. But even i asked non- smoking bedroom, room was so smelly. Except that, staffs are very kind and polite and facilities are good.

Can't believe my luck. Left Sheraton at Hsingchu with a smelly room a week ago and I check into this one. A bit of sewage smell starts at the elevator and it hits your face big time when the elevator door opened on the 19th floor. The smell is worst when we came back at night but hardly noticeable in the morning. Not pleasant at all.

For the hotel, facilities are good and location is excellent with Sogo department store across the street and the Science center on the other side.

Too bad it smells.

I stayed here for 7 nights on businees and found this to be a great hotel. I had a room on the 23rd floor with great views over Taichung. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful. Room was nice, very clean and comfortable. The location is great as well with a choice of resurants close by. Breakfast in the hotel was a buffet with a gooid selection. And they have umbrellas and cycles you can use for free!

The Splendor in Taichung offers marvelous Quality from check-in to check-out and all in between. The rooms are impeccable clean, well equipped with good linen on the beds. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast has a great choice for both Asian clients as well western clients.

Made a reservation online a few weeks prior to my trip however upon arrival, i was shocked to find my reservation not found. Shockingly, i have received a hotel booking confirmation. I have reserved a 3 nights stay with this hotel, however the receptionist told me that i could stay for the first night and the second night will be on the 'waiting list' and i'll be notified before 12 noon the next day. However, on the second day at approximately 1145 i was not told whether i have to move out of the hotel. i have to call the reception to check and i was then told that the hotel is fully booked. I was asked to move out.

I was furious to have wasted half of my day having to move and check out and check in to another hotel. Furthermore, when i emailed the travel agent that i have booked the hotel with, the TA told me that they have received the booking. However, when the TA checked with the hotel's employee, he/she responded that it was due to an overbooking.

I wouldn't be as furious if i'd have known that the hotel has been overbooked rather than my confirmation not being received, as it clearly is 2 different matters.

Room Tip: Do call up the hotel to double check if your room is being confirmed, if not you'd have to waste...

Hi, i was there my 3rd time and it is always nice to stay in "The Splendor". The room is very comfortable and the view above Kaoshung is really nice. Using a high speed elevator to go to 39th floor first to reach the Hotel Lobby :-) and then further move (in my case) to floor 59 to the rooms (highest floor is 79). This is a really nice advanture. Further the breakfast is really big, nice and comfortable. The room is splitted into 2 pieces and on one site is "cold" on the other side are the "hit" dishes. Nice and fresh caffee is served from a been machine... totally perfect to stay for either business or holiday. Airport pick up is available too, it just takes 15min.
