Cheap - at NT1480 (~S$60) a night, I could not ask for more.
You can't really go wrong with the location, just across Taichung Station. 7-11 is across the street and FamilyMart just a 2 mins walk away, allowing us to go grab some snacks and such at 3am in the morning. A police post is pretty much next to Bravo as well, so we feel safe. Not that Taichung is a dangerous place to begin with.
I stayed on the 6th floor in what they call "Economic Double Room", with two single beds. There is no window, so fans of natural light take note. The room is kinda small, there's just enough space to move around. The floor is tiled, which is I personally prefer over carpet as I think it is cleaner. Aircon controls are wall mounted next to the bed. There is one power point at the dresser and another next to the bed. You don't get a wardrobe to hang your clothes but there is an extendable metal bar to hang your stuff on, with about 3 hangers provided. The beds are comfortable enough and they face a wall-mounted 42" TV with ~100 channels to pick from. Beware the very easily accessible, totally uncensored porn channels that will suddenly appear in your face without any prompt or warning, especially if you have children. Awkward.
The bathroom is a bit of a squeeze, but most importantly to me, it seems really clean. The flush works well (and that is an important thing to me) but the consistency of the water pressure and temperature for the shower could be better. It's not a deal breaker though.
The free internet access is fast and speedtest.net returned an average of 30-35mbps download speed. Great for that call back to your loved ones over FaceTime, Skype or otherwise.
It has been one night so far, and it has been very decent. If anything changes over the next 3 days, I will update this review.
But if you are looking for a clean, conveniently located and very reasonably priced place to stay, you may want to give Bravo a try.
