location and value for money”
location is perfect. Walking distance from the TRA and the intercity bus terminals. Bus stops going to different attractions in taichung like Fengjia and yizhong market are also walking distance from the hotel (one literally in front of the hotel). check-in and check out is a breeze since it is automated (first time I've tried it). Staff are friendly, can speak good English and always ready to assist you. room is small but enough for us. it is also very clean with complete toiletries. buffet breakfast is adequate for its price. some dishes are actually delicious. Overall, this is really a great hotel in taichung with value for money. will stay again here in our next visit to taichung. Thanks Chance.
For its cheap price, its more than we could expect, basic amenities available, toiletries, towels, buffet breakfast (taiwanese food mostly), with free candies at the front desk (which was yummy btw). Location was excellent near train station, bus station, walkable to the taichung park and night market, very near miyahara ice cream and with food places to eat nearby. Check-in was at 2pm but they let us check-in at 12nn when we arrived. Staff were accommodating as well althou limited english. All in all it was a nice stay and a good starting point for all out of town sight seeing. Thank you chance hotel! Will probably book again if ever we go back to taichung!
First time to Taichung with 2 infants”
First negative impression is there is no ramp from street to hotel. We need to lift our big luggage up to enter the hotel. Bottled water provided have a bit of chemical taste, so we purchased from nearby 7-11 for kids to drink. Then my 2yr kid found bundle of dust at the corner of the bed, something we adult might missed out. Now the positive review, the location is very near Taichung railway station, bus to Sun Moon lake and Miyahara gift store. We ordered family room, with 2 queen size beds that can be pushed and joined. The room equipped with fridge, hairdryer, electric water boiler, and basic toiletries. During our stay, we don't hear any noise coming from other room or from the street, so we can sleep very well. The breakfast provided is almost the same menu during our stay, so we venture to try several street food vendor nearby hotel. Taichung is not stroller friendly city as the road are full of obstacle. The entrance of train compartment also stairs, so need to lift the stroller. But Taiwanese are very friendly and helpful especially when they see us carried babies.
small room but good location”
i thought Taichung main station is, a station for all trains, but it turned out to be express train station is in the other side of the town!! We had to take a cab, 20 mins journey to this hotel. Taichung Main station means a train station for interior route station which is right opposite of the hotel. 2 shops on your right it's a bus company which runs an express bus service to Taipei. So it was really really convenient if you are going to Taipei after Taichung trip. I was glad to stay here, bcoz me and my fren made use of the taichung main station train service to many rurals for sight seeing. Walking out the hotel to your right, it has a lot of stalls and shopping areas, managed to spot Miyahara cafe, which was worth a treat of high tea there. Our room was far too small than expected, but we were mostly out for side seeing, and the room was clean and house keeping changed our sheets daily. we had good night sleep, so i am not gonna complain.... breakfast was minimal, but it has local kind of breakfast, and it's quite filling The waitress was not very polite at one ocation, when my girl fren was getting a toast of her bread, the waitress rudely off the switch saying the breakfast is closed, but when we checked the clock, it was still 5 minutes to closing time. I really think the incident was uncalled for. The area, although it's central of Taichung, but i dont see many locals, instead i could see many foreigners (not tourists) who are staying in Taichung. However, it's still safe to walk on the streets.
Convenient, Lively Atmosphere outside Hotel”
Chance Hotel is near Taichung TRA station (2 min walk). Since it is near, there are many people, bus stands, food stalls near the hotel. Pleasantly surprised when we were given free upgrade to 4 person room (group of 3). Thank you. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable when we asked for directions. Although the hotel room is quite small, it has everything we need. The only problem is the floor isn't exactly clean so I had to wear the given slippers to walk around (problem solved).
If you're looking for a cheap option staying in Taichung for a few nights, Chance Hotel is one of the best options you can find in the city. With perfect location (5 mins walk from train station,) clean rooms, appealing price, and free breakfast, Chance Hotel is some hostels backpackers dream about. However, if you are looking for a decent hotel, you might be disappointed. the room is rather small compared with other hotels around the district. Although the lobby looks rather new, the decoration of the room looks aged. The wall is pretty thin because you can hear everything outside your room. Overall, it's a pretty good and cheap option, unless you are expecting more than a cheap hostel.
Conveniently located near the main transportation hub, right in the city center. Plenty to see and do around this neighborhood, with quick access to all parts of the city. Taichung Park and the Yizhong Shopping district is in the immediate vicinity. Fengjia Night Market is a 15-min. cab ride away. The hotel itself, while dated, appears to be well-maintained. Nothing too fancy but one cannot really complain as you do get what you paid for. Beds, pillows and sheets extremely soft and comfortable but the other matching furniture was pretty rundown. Nevertheless, for a quick overnight sleep, and considering the price paid, this establishment very well fulfills its purpose. As well, the complementary breakfast is fairly decent.
Unbeatable value! Very well-worth considering for basic lodgings! ”
(+) - unbelievable price - right in the center of downtown and across the street from the main train and bus stations with plenty of restaurants and shops in the vicinity. - very clean hotel and rooms in general - very friendly, professional and helpful staff - all essentials provided - decent breakfast offerings, especially considering the price - excellent relaxing city where everything is very reasonably priced. - scenic Taichung Park within a 5-10 minute walk. - all basic room amenities and toiletries provided - A/C system is problem-free - hostel lodgings provided also, though realistically, for just a little more money, one can stay in a decent private room (–) - located the shadiest, oldest, dirtiest part of town (inner city) although it’s clear the city is trying hard to re-model and revamp the aging neighborhood - you can expect only the very, very basic essentials. For this price, there’s really no real complaints - parking
I took U bus from Taoyuan airport to Taichung so Chance hotel is the best choice as it is close to the last stop. On the way back to airport, U bus is just around the corner. The single room is small yet efficient. It is clean and bright. The only downside is the bathroom light could be brighter. And 1 extra socket at the desk. The breakfast is very tasty with different choice each day. Great value. Strongly recommend this hotel.
Chance Hotel is very conveniently located across Taichung Main Station. Given its location and the fact that a bus stop is just outside the hotel, the place is bustling with people and vehicles once you stepped out of the hotel. If you booked a cab or car for your day trip around Taichung, the driver may not be able to wait for you too long outside the hotel given the traffic conditions there. In this case, it's advisable to be prepared and wait for driver at the hotel lobby instead. The hotel room is decent given the price that we pay for, except that the floor was quite sticky and I find myself not wanting to step on it barefooted. Luckily the hotel provided in-room slipper. Perhaps the hotel can mop the floor on a daily basis, instead of just sweeping it. The breakfast spread is decent. The only downside is those stir-fried dishes are quite salty.
This hotel is located at the heart of central district of Taichung. It is nearby the TRA station and bus station. There are lots of convenience stores and food stalls outside the hotel. As a heavy-eater in the morning(lol!), I like their variety of buffet breakfast combining the western and taiwanese foods. We availed the quad room which is good for the four of us in the group. What's hilarious was that we saw a cockroach in the bed before we checked out. I think the hotel needs to cleanse all their rooms to avoid insects scattered around for their future customers. Overall, I will still recommend this place as they have affordable rooms for backpackers or budget-travellers.
Decent stay with very good location ”
Hotel is just opposite the train station. Just cross the road and you're at the Taichung old railway station. The new Taichung railway station is just right behind. Very good location for catching trains next day. Beds and pillows are nice and comfy. Toilets are decent. Breakfast is pretty good with variety of selection. It's definitely value for money. Howvwer, since it's cheap, there happened to be big groups of Taiwanese students staying the night who could stop shouting and screaming till late night 12am ++. Room floor is generally dirty and you will need to wear the disposable slippers provided. Other than that, it's a very decent stay at a very attractive price
Hotel is in front of the Taichung TRA Station w/c is beside the Taichung Bus Station. Gancheng Bus Station is less than a 10-min walk away. There are 24H convenience stores nearby plus tea, scallion pancake & wheel cake stands a few steps away. Very near tourist attractions like Miyahara. I stayed in the female dorm. The space I occupied has 2 USB ports for charging as well as 2 lamps. No sockets. The bed was comfortable; comforter & pillow were provided. Full curtains for privacy & locker were also there. I didn't see the cleaning staff sweep the floor of the room during my 3-night stay though. Wifi was working. Water dispenser was available. Buffet breakfast was good enough w/ Taiwanese dishes, scrambled egg, rice, bread, pastries, salad, congee, fruits, coffee, juice, tea. No towels provided (maybe need to rent). Toiletries: shampoo, body wash, comb, cotton buds, toilet paper, cotton swab, shower cap. Shower area & toilet were clean. Can leave luggage before/after check in/out.
Chance Hotel has a very good location, near bus, train, restaurants, family mart and seven eleven. Beds are very comfortable and big enough for a family of four. Breakfast buffet had a variety of food choices They allowed us to leave our luggages while we go around Taichung. Staff can speak and understand English..they even have provided maps .
I like this hostel. Their cleanliness in the room and toilet made me feel comfortable.”
This is one of my favorite hostel. The location is very convenient. The staff are very helpful. They provide all necessary facilities for backpackers like combination locker, hair dryer, washing machine as well as good quality of breakfast. If I have a chance to be back in Taichung, I will stay with Chance hotel again.
Short trip to Tai Chung”
Stayed at Chance Hotel from 10 - 12 Nov. Located near the Taichung train station which is very convenient to travel around by bus, train or taxis. Breakfast is good but repetitive food. Staff is helpful when asked them for direction to places. Room is decent enough with all amenities in place.
Good breakfast, good location.”
Location is 5 minutes away from Taichung Bus interchange and opposite is Taichung Train Station. Next to Chance Hotel is Chuan Hang Bus service. Breakfast has ample varieties to choose and service staff is attentive and prompt. Overall service is good .
This hostel is just one traffic light away from taichung train station, which makes it convenient to go around the different attractions in taichung. For people who are thinking of taking bus from taichung to other cities in taiwan, U-bus company is located just beside this hostel (they are at the same building, probably two shops away). So transportation around the hostel is really convenient and saves up the time and energy needed to carry heavy luggage all over the place. Doors are fitted for all the rooms in girls' dormitory unlike that depicted in the photo album, which is really great for privacy and security reasons.
The hotel is just a short distance to Taichung Railway station. It also very near the old town with Vietnamese and Indonesian that you can do shopping and eating with cheap price. Front Office staff are good english and F&B staff provide best service. They are very nice and helpful. Tip : the Taichung Railway Bus station just in front the hotel. U bus station to Taipei just 100 m from right side the hotel. The side walk in front hotel are full food street venders and Family Mart.
great location, tge best budget hotel near taichung station.”
everything was great, price wise n location wise. just across the street from Taichung train station. miyahara just abt 10mins walk. gancheng station that brings you to sml or gaomei was smile away. thank you chance hotel.
