“Value for money, clean and comfortable boutique hotel”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in oct. The room was comfortable, and clean. The popular Fengjia night market is a 7min walk away. Staff was also very friendly and approachable. They would show you to the door and point to your destination when you ask for directions.

We stayed in triple family room on 27 Oct 2012 for one night.

Location: It's a 5-10 minutes walk to Fengjia Night Market and about 5 mins walk to Carrefour. The route to Fengjia NM from the hotel is quite dark but sometimes there are people taking the same route. Cab fare from the Taichung HSR to this hotel is about 200NT. There is no major shopping center around this area.

Service: There is always one man who will standby near the lift and the door. This is quite a small hotel so one staff to attend to both sides is okay. If he sees us carrying items, he will open the door for us and also guide us to the lift. Every staff who sees a guest will greet them with a smile. Check-in to the hotel is fast. Check-out is only handing over your keys to the reception.

Room: Bed is reasonably comfortable and clean. Room is spacious with sofa and coffee table, a study table and a 32 inch LCD TV. Our room has a queen size bed and a single size bed. It is spacious enough for 3 adults to move around in the room. Kettle is very clean. Tea bags, coffee powder, Mineral water and fruit juice is complimentary.

Toilet: Toilet is clean but very small. I find the tap kind of hard to use. The lever upright means off the tap. Keeping the lever upright needs precision which can be cumbersome. Toiletries are provided including toothbrush and toothpaste. No bathtub in bathroom. Water pressure and temperature is good.

Breakfast: Taiwanese plain porridge with condiments and Taiwanese side dishes. They also have toast and wholemeal bread and buns, orange juice, coffee and tea. it's a simple breakfast but it's a all-you-can-eat. We are told that on weekends, you will need to call the reception whether there is a place for the breakfast before proceeding to the restaurant as the place is quite small. On weekdays, the crowd starts from 7:30am.

Conclusion: I might consider staying here again if I am in Taichung. It's close proximity to Fengjia Night market is a consideration but it is not near to the HSR or the railway. Both requires about 20 mins of cab ride. They have a free shuttle from TC HSR to Fengjia University then walk about 7 minutes to the hotel but it might not be possible if you are carrying luggages. The free shuttle is a minivan. A side note, Fengjia night market is very crowded on weekends. Probably not suitable for elderly.

We managed to get a Business Triple for our family of 3 at US$88. Hence with the price in mind, we felt that it was one of the best value accommodation for our entire Taiwan trip. This includes a huge, clean and comfortable room, breakfast (which was alright) and free use of laundry facilities. We really like the laundry facilities as the washing machine and dryer can take quite a big load of wash.

Location wise, it is a 10-15 minutes walk to Fengjia Night Market and 10 minutes walk to the free HSR shuttle bus stop to Taichung HSR station.

Wifi is free and there are computers and printers near the lobby for guests' use. However, the staff mending the reception seemed cold and unwelcoming.

This hotel is easy to reach using the free shuttle bus service from the Taichung HSR station. The stop is in front of the Starbucks just across the street and the hotel is in plain view. Just look across towards the petrol kiosk.

Room as usual is rather impeccable in cleanliness but very cramped. Wifi and wired internet access is free.

The breakfast provided by the hotel is nothing to shout about but serves to power you for the day's activities ahead with its servings of local fare.

The staff are very helpful in showing you the way to Fengjia Night Market. The main attraction for this hotel.

Stayed 2 nights, the location is good as it is very near to the FengChia Night Market..a 5 minute walk. The room is good size and the bathroom is nice and clean. Lacking is the availiablity of free Wifi in the room while it is accessible at the lobby. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
