53 Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is the best among the 4 hotels we stayed during our trip in Taiwan.
Conveniently located next to a convenience store, walking distance to the railway station and a 24hr MacDonald. Although it is quite a driving distance to Feng Jia night market, we are not complaining. Stayed in a family room with 2 double beds for 2 adults and 2 children. Room is very spacious, clean and bright with a modern feel. Toilet is spacious and clean too.
Hotel staff is very helpful, friendly and polite.
Will I stay again? DEFINITELY!

Location wise, it was so-so. We came here from Cingjing so we took a bus to the train station, which was a walking distance to the hotel. Left for Taipei the next day via a short train ride to the HSR station then the HSR itself. It isn't in the most happening part of the city though, but the bus station is near and the night market is a 50-min bus ride away.

While you are here, you might want to check out the popular ice cream store just across the road. We also bought our 太阳饼 from the famous store a few roads away (ask the receptionist for directions).

It's a nice clean hotel, with friendly staff. Not much to complain about and it's incredibly value-for-money.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a family room. The hotel and the room itself were excellent. Central location, very close to the Taichung railway station and lots of restaurants nearby, getting a cab is easy too. The hotel interior and the room itself has a very modern feel to it. There is a huge TV which looks about 42 inches which is larger than that in most hotel rooms. Nice bathroom with an anti slip floor surface. Only minus point about the room is the 2 beds are double beds which are narrower than queen size beds but it was still ok for the four of us. The breakfast was great. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful, always willing to offer a smile and whatever help you needed. I would definitely stay here again if I'm visiting Taichung. It is ranked one of the best hotels in Taichung on trip advisor and rightly so.

Stayed in a room for 2 adults and 2 children. The room is clean, new and spacious with modern setting but ony 2 hangers for you to use. The toilet is clean and spacious too. No problem with the sleep.

Staff was helpful, polite and friendly.

Location is good, walking distance to the Taichung train station and the famous Miyahara. Their Ice cream was nice! As for the fengjia night market, it is about 20 min drive from the hotel. The cab cost you around NT$200. Breakfast is average.You can use their laundry facilities for free. Detergent is charged at NT$30.

Overall, is a pleasant hotel to stay.

This is the best hotel of our stay in Kaohsiung, Tainan and Taichung! So convenient from the Taiching train station and to the bus station. The room is spacious for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teengers). The lobby, the dinning area and the basement fitness and laundry room are cosy. The staffs are friendly and greet you whenever you walk past. When I asked how to walk to the bus station, as the next day we are heading to Cingjing, the staff is very kind and friendly to clarify that we are looking for Nantou bus station and provided us with a map and directed us clearly. 2 keys (cards) are provided for the guest's convenience as you need to tap the key in the lift before you can press the desired level from level 1. I believe this is for security purpose. Breakfast provided with a wide range of local rice and porridge with dishes, white bread and wholemeal bread, cereal and milk, juices and coffee. The best that I like is the giant size washing machine and dryer. It is crucial to us as it is our 7th day in Taiwan and we brought with us only minimum clothing. Met a few families from Singapore too!

Room Tip: Value for money for a family of 4!

I stay alone at this hotel several days on early July 2013.

The location for this hotel is perfect. Next to hotel is a convenience store Family Mart. You can get what you want very easy.

Others good point are : Clean, tidy and neat room. Silent, noiseless with good sleep. Very friendly staff, you stay at the front desk within a minute, staffs will come to ask you do you need any help or information ?

WiFi is good and stable. Buffet breakfast is simple and re-fill very fast, minor problem is the coffee maker. One unit coffee maker only, customer need to line up holding the cup waiting.

Basically, I have no complain for this hotel and I am looking forward come again.

There is a ice cream shop MIYAHARA 宮原眼科, just opposite to the hotel. You MUST go there or you will regret. Gorgeous, very good decoration and beautiful place you will stay there enjoy looking for many minutes before you buy your ice cream.

Room Tip: You can ask front desk give you a silent room.

Excellent location with lots of nearby eating places. Reception was warm and friendly, eager to help and offer good suggestions of places to eat. Room is quite spacious.

Breakfast was mediocre, but within expectations since I am all geared to eat local breakfast…

Will return to this hotel for its location.
