Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2013

A great place to stay with reasonable prices and access to business amenities. The staff are always friendly, always looking to make your stay as great as it can be. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Taichung for business or vacation.

I'm currently staying here on a long stay for business.
I've stayed in an Evergreen hotel before (Tainan) but this one is much better.

Room in massive and very good value.
Big TV with lots of channels.

Well equipped gym, decent breakfast.
The staff are genuinely friendly and will go out of their way to help you.
Fast laundry service too.
They even give you a free drink at the bar every day.
Small touches like that all add up and make it a great place to stay.

Room Tip: ask for 15th floor

After 2 flight delays causing a missed flight on my last connection, further causing a run through the Hong Kong airport with a Dragon Air ground staff assistant to meet the last leg, getting to the Evergreen Hotel in Taichung was much anticipated.
The staff at check in we're fantastic, courteous and friendly.
The room is spacious with every possible amenity. I stayed in an executive suite with a lounge, desk and more robe space than usual. Bathroom is beautiful, but the toilet takes some getting used to for travellers not used to electronics and bottom washes, but that's adventure I guess. The hotel is very well located with Taichung Park, the Science Centre and night markets within easy reach.
Happy trails

I was amazed by the service of this hotel, top notch, on a par with or better than the Shangri-La and Regent in Taipei. Check-in was fast and professional, luggage delivery very prompt. Rooms are good, but nothing great. View was pretty poor as my room faced the rear and I was on a lower floor.

This is my 3rd time at the Evergreen. It's a very nice hotel, with attentive staff and a great breakfast buffet. I always look for a good breakfast to get me through most of the business day. This one has lots to offer, plus made-to-order eggs, lots of fruits and other western type foods, plus typical chinese breakfast items as well. I selected a room rate that included breakfast.

Internet service was included and access was good. The lobby area is comfortable and there is a nice lobby bar and cafe to relax and have a drink. I always like hotels that provide foam slippers so you don't have to walk barefoot on carpets.

Overall a very good hotel at a very good price. I will certainly stay there again on my next trip to Taichung.

Room Tip: I always ask for a quiet room on an upper floor. I've never had a bad room. They provide coffe...

i stayed here for one night, stay were very pleasant at check in, giving me a map of the area and suggesting areas i may like to visit.

The room which was a good size with a kingsize bed which was extremely comfortable. There was fruit in the room, banana, oranges, kiwi and bizarrely baby tomatoes! included in the rate was one soft drink from the mini-bar, a discount on laundry and several other items which i cant remember.

the soundproofing between the rooms wasnt too good & i could hear the people in the rooms either side of me.

The bathroom was a reasonable size with a walk-in shower cubical & a multi-function toilet. There were plenty of towels and the both the room and the bathroom were spotlessly clean.

There was free wifi in the room which was ok, but not quick enough to run Skype.

There is a swimming pool which is outside and not heated, it was absolutely freezing, there is a life guard on duty. The gym was a good size with a good selection of machines to use.

Breakfast was a real let down, both the content and the service, I'd been staying at the same hotel brand in Taipei and there was a marked difference between the two. The restaurant was extremely busy & the tables were almost grouped in what can only be described as a canteen style, pushed up together in rows, the staff were very slow at clearing the tables and getting drinks. A lot of the food need replenishing, but wasnt replaced quickly. They run a funny system for getting eggs etc cooked, which nobody bothered to explain, you have a peg on your table and have to go up to the counter and just your peg in the bowel for the type of egg you want and then some time later (much later) your choice appears on your table. The staff here really let what was a nice hotel in stay in, down.

A little disappointed with this hotel to be honest so i dont think I'd stay here again on my next visit to Taichung

Good service. The staff strives to please. Nice room - but too firm of a bed for an American traveler. I don’t really know other hotels in the area –so I always come back here. It is solidly ‘acceptable’.
For me a good breakfast is important because I look forward to the breakfast to be a nice break from Chinese food for lunch and dinner. I think the Evergreen falls short here. They will make you an omelette, but they don’t add really let you select what to put in the omelettes. The Orange juice tastes more like a 50/50 mixture of tang or HiC and Orange juice. Very limited pastries. Bacon is moist – like it was prepared by being boiled. Oatmeal was terrible- way too salty- not really eatable. You can find food to fill you up – but it is not a breakfast to look forward to.
