The hotel look very new. Lobby area on ground floor look only a few years old max.
There are 4 computers on ground floor for internet access. Also laundry with washing machine, dryers, iron and ironing board.
Basement is restaurant, for breakfast. My standard rate booking included breakfast. Other than toast, croissant, breakfast cereal, and scrambled egg, the rest were Chinese style hot food, like meat and steamed vegetables. If you are not of Chinese or Asia background, you may think you are at a shopping centre buying Chinese takeaway lunch / dinner, or choices maybe limited.
Up to the room. I stayed on level 2, first room out of the lift. Didn't hear noises at all. It was very quite, despite the hotel was always busy (queue at front desk most of the time).
Inside the room was quite big by Asian cities standard. Flat screen TV, water kettle, potato chips / crisps. Inside bathroom were hair dryer, body wash and shampoo, hand soap, toothbrush, even disposable shavers.
Room was clean throughout.
Location is both excellent and a major shortfall.
The hotel is located at the southern side of Taichung train station / train line (not high speed rail station, which is 3 train stops away), called 'rear train station'. When you get off the train or bus at Taichung station, you will be on the northern side of the train line. On this side of the station, west is 7-11 convenient store and taxi stand. On the east, you will see entrance to the tunnel, with a sign 'rear train station' in English. Follow this sign, you will get out at the other side of the train line, into an alleyway. Turn left to go back onto main road, turn right and you will see the hotel.
Catch is, that tunnel which crosses the train line has no lift, and quite a lot of stairs, so a problem if you have heavy luggage.
