I stayed at plaza hotel for 2 nights when I was in Taichung. The hotel is just opposite the Taiwan railway station. Very accessible and convienent to travel around. There's a bus stop nearby where you can take a bus to various popular places like fengjia night market and yizhong street. The receptionist are very polite. The room is not very big but it's good enough. The place is very clean and well lighted up. The morning breakfast is buffet style but don't expect a large spread. There's salad, bread with various spread, western food and Chinese food. Overall it's good. The hotel price is good and definitely worth the money. If I were to come Taichung again, I'll stay here again for sure. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who are coming to Taichung.
Stategic location - centrally connected”
If location was your main concern, look no further. PLAZA HOTEL TAICHUNG is the place to stay at. Located next to the railway station and with easy access to public buses, you can save loads on transport. During my 3 days/2 nights @ Taichung City, I did not have to take any taxi, but relied on public transport to Yizhong shopping district & Fengjia night market. There is a direct bus #135 to Sun Moon Lake, the bus station is located within walking distance from the hotel. Don't be misled by the hotel exterior. With the modern room decor and reasonable spread of buffet breakfast, this is one hotel where you get your dollars stretched to its maximum limit.
pleasant stay !”
Plaza hotel was 1 of the 2 hotels I have stayed during my period in Taichung. It is just beside the Taichung railway station and it is also near the Taichung bus station. Service staff are very friendly. They actually walked us to the lift and help us open press the lift button. when the door closes, they even bow and bid goodbye! Room is very spacious. we booked a triple room but there were 2 double beds. the room is definitely big enough for 4 people. Breakfast doesn't look good. We wanted to had breakfast on our last day, but the food looks bad. We went to the dining area on the second floor but was directed to the ground floor as they have ran out of food. Its the same and it looks bad. But no worries, you can always find good food around the hotel. en There is a small café just 2 mins walk from the hotel. It serve local style/English breakfast. Ham burger/ chicken burger and local egg roll! Just ask for direction at the front desk :)
Great Location, good hotel.”
Took me a while to find this hotel when i arrive in Taichung by a bus. Its directly beside the railway station so it will be convenient for people taking the railway down. I stayed in the super single room and i really liked it. Big and clean bathtub and toilets for single user. Room is also very comfy to stay. Plaza hotel has a lot of facilities such as the gym(B1), a laundry room(B1), a cafe(2F) and free wifi access. The friendly lobby staff will guide you on where to explore in taichung and they have brochures to the various night markets in taichung. Book a room through agoda and they will throw in a breakfast voucher in their cafe.
Three night at Plaza hotel”
I would like to specially mention the location of the hotel is just right beside the Taichung railway station, it is so accessible. As it is located at the heart of Taichung, going from places to places is so easy either though the local buses, railway line or taxi. The staff of plaza hotel are also excellent is proving information on how to travel to the different places of interest by whichever mode of transport you choose. This is the hotel, that you must stay in when you come to Taichung. I have a very wonderful stay and certainly this will be my preferred hotel when I visit Taichung again
Comfortable and great service and great price !”
Great, there is a self serve laundry room which we is crucial for our 10day stay in Taiwan. Thanks Plaza Hotel for having this service. And we have lots of free time to explore around taichung because of the central and convenient location. Just a few steps from Taichung Railway station and bus stops with many buses to any where u want to go in Taichung! Will choose this hotel again If we visit Taichung again.
Conveniently Located & Fantastic Room Condition”
Plaza Hotel is conveniently located right next to Taichung Railway Station which makes it easy to catch the train to and from the high speed rail station. The bus and BRT stations are located in front of the hotel which makes traveling to Chungyo Shopping District or Feng Jia Night Market very easy. The hotel is relatively new which makes all the rooms there in immaculate condition. Breakfast spread is decent and filling. Overall, fantastic stay.
Great location - hotel is next to Taichung station and close to all bus stations. 24H 7-11 is 2 mins walk from the hotel. We were confused between “plaza hotel” and “butler hotel” though then later figured out they are the same. Washing machine was out of service on our last day then hotel staff were very kind to help us send our clothes to laundry (and dry out too) for twd160, which we found reasonable. We were already satisfied that our clothes could be washed before we departed to Taipei but when we checked out they refunded it back to us! I can’t say this hotel is perfect but we really appreciate their help and service.
Dear guest, Thank you for rating us and recognizing our effort. We are flattered. The generous review of yours helps BUTLER Hotel better in the future. We thank you again for showing your support. It was our honor to serve you as one of our distinguished guests. We look forward to serving you again in the near future.
Convenient location at an acceptable price”
I stayed for one night at the Plaza Hotel in Taichung. One of the selling points of this hotel is its convenient location in the city. The Taichung station is just nearby where you can take trains to the other cities. As a boutique hotel rooms are generally smaller but amenities in the rooms are sufficient for a short stay. I am impressed with the neatness and cleanliness of the room. Overall, it is an ideal choice for backpackers.
Lovely hotel with a great location.”
plaza hotel is a lovely hotel with well furnished and relatively new rooms hidden behind a worn out facade. it is very conveniently located right next to the taichung tra station as well as 3 bus terminals (ubus, kuokuang transport & taichung city bus) and a bus stop that has a comprehensive network of services that brings you everywhere. breakfast was a decent fare of western food and congee. there is also a 7/11 convenience stall downstairs. great choice !!
Great location, nice hotel”
Hotel rooms are very clean and modern. All room amenities are in good working order and look very new. Value for money for the price. Breakfast is very decent, though not many variety. Best part of hotel is its central location, just next to Taichung train station. Bus serving all parts of Taiwan are available next to hotel. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. My family has a really pleasant stay at the hotel and will definitely choose this hotel, should we come to Taichung.
Excellent location; room a little worn-out”
We have stayed here a couple of years back, when the old Taichung Train Station was still in service. We chose to stay at Butler Hotel (it used to be called Plaza Hotel）again due to the the proximity to bus and train services. No complaints considering the price range, but the room was a little worn-out compared to our last visit. The aircon had an odd motor cranking sound from time to time, not sure what it was but if I could hazard a guess, it might be from the fan stopping and starting with the thermostat. When we checked out, the staff did not ask if we were happy with the stay, and so we didn't give any feedback either. Staff, although still professional, seemed less warm and smiley than the last time we stayed.
One of the best hotels”
I had my 2 nights stay at Butler and they provided one of the best services! It is located about 5 minutes walk away from Taichung Train Station (opposite to Taichung Old Railway Station, a small road away from 7-Eleven) and is accessible to many places within the city. You can head to quite a few places from the bus stops nearby. The staff were helpful and answered all my queries with patience, even though we did our planning. We wanted to book a taxi and they assisted us readily. One of them even googled the places and showed us what we could do at these places! Excellent service for this, I would say. The room was also clean and neat. It was big and rather comfy. Toiletries were also provided. Breakfast was different for two days, but nothing amazing about it; just edible and a tad too salty. Generally, a very pleasant stay! By the way, the hotel is about 15 minutes away from Yi Zhong Night Market (by bus).
Meanwhile, our staff have toured the city looking for the best delicacies, shops, and attractions, and we are in the process of compiling this information into a multilingual guidebook. We expect to have this ready by the end of the year, and hope this information will be useful for guests travelling from abroad looking for the best inside scoops. We are happy that we could offer the city information to help your tour, and we hope you have good memories in Taichung City.
Lovely Hotel, Great location and excellent service”
Wonderful Hotel. Taichung TRA is within walking distance, about 3 minutes walk from the hotel. Rooms are clean though abit small. Breakfast are not too bad as compared to other hotel. Service are great. If you encounter any problems, feel free to go to the counter as they are willing to help you. However, if you would like to visit Fengjia night market, you would have to take a bus and the whole journey took about 35 minutes. Also, the drainage system in the bathroom is a bit slow. Other than that, I had a wonderful stay in Plaza hotel
Good location, Value for Money, Clean room”
Plaza Hotel has been my choice of hotel for every Taichung trip (4th time there). As shared by other travelers, the hotel is conveniently situated beside the TRA station and surrounded by other Coach terminals. The rooms are clean and have modern look. While the price has escalated over the years, probably due to higher demand, the price is worth paying
convenient location, good service, spacious rooms”
we booked a business twin room at plaza hotel. on the day of our arrival at plaza hotel, the reception told us that the business twin room was unavailable on that particular day. however, we are pleasantly surprised to be given a free upgrade to a 4-person room that comes with 2 big beds. the room is new, spacious and clean. highly recommended. would definitely book this hotel the next time i visit taichung again.
Nice hotel at the best location”
Plaza Hotel is situated right in front of Taichung Railway station and bus station, which makes it very convenient for traveling to other cities such as Sun Moon Lake and Taipei. The room looks just like what is shown in their photos, only smaller. It comes with modern decoration and is clean. The breakfast has not much variety and tastes only so-so. Wireless internet is available at the lobby only.
Great, comfortable and fuss-free stay”
Staff was really helpful in guiding me to get to the hotel through the phone when I lost my way. Checking in and out processes were fast and efficient. Conveniently located near taichung train station which was about 5-10mins walk and there are a lot of bus services available to get to other places as well! Staff were really friendly and helpful should you have any questions in getting around Taichung. Room was simple, clean and neat! I'm planning to stay in Plaza Hotel again for my next trip to Taichung!
Good location in cosy room.”
Plaza hotel is just beside taichung train station. Please do not mistake the train station as the high speed rail station, nor the monorail station. Location wise, it is very good as it is just beside the train station, and it was perfect for us as we needed to catch a train back to taipei the following day. It is also close to several attractions, like the second market and miyahara (walking distance). Room is small, but very cosy and i like their toilet, very clean and nicely done. They also have laid out all disposables like shower gel, facial wash, toothbrush etc. Very cosy and homely feeling in general, value for money.
Great hotel. Worth the every penny”
I stayed here for 10 nights in total. I come to Taiwan visiting my girlfriend often and I will stay here everytime from now on. I have tried many hotels but none match up to yhe value for miney the plaza has to offer! The rooms are clean. Nice decor. The staff are always smiling and helpful. Breakfast is well cooked and well presented. The location is fantastic. Sometimes a little noisy (this is not negative) the hotel is in the heart of old Taichung next to the train and bus stations. Only in the mornings but why would you want to lie in bed when your moments away from a train to somewhere magical in Taiwan?!? All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone.. Book with price vs expectations in mind and you will not be disappointed!
