        Okay, staff a bit rude.”

        Since we got a driver for us for the whole day, wasn't difficult to get here. Still is pretty reachable from the Train station. The staff were pretty indifferent when we got there and need some manners when it comes to serve the guests. The price is quite high for an okay hotel in a small city. In overall was okay, maybe you can find something better. :)

        Pretty decent hotel ”

        If you are looking for a hotel to be decent and near to the convenient things, i would recommend Charming City. Breakfast not so bad but dont expect continental cuisine, mostly it is of Local cuisine. Pretty much a decent stay out there, just our room were too small for a double Bed and noting like that in the pic shown.

        Nice, clean rooms, very helpful and friendly staff and great breakfast

        The rooms were large and very clean. The location is near the train station. You will need a taxi to travel to the city center. Taxis are readily available on the street. The breakfast buffet was great with a wide range of Taiwanese dishes (and also toast, butter and jam for those who don't like Taiwanese breakfast). Some staff spoke English and were very helpful.

Also, there are some eating place around and you can save time for meal sourcing. The only pity is that the Wifi is not functioning and too slow, and no locker in each room.

        Space, Location and Breakfast

        We 2 couples stayed 1 nights at this hotel. We reached about 8pm and booked for 2 standard/economy rooms. The rooms that we had was located at the other building behind the main receptionist building. We have to carry our own luggage (for 4 stars hotel)and find the room but this one not a big deal because we only bring small luggage each. The room quite spacious and clean but mine a bit old, while my friend's room was a renovated one (we booked together previously) but got different type of room (my husband ever stayed there before 3 years ago and said that the room was so nice and new, he quite confused when we got the old type room). Other than that The breakfast quite nice and enough choices. The location is superb because we can view peak of the mountain. In the morning there was a tour for their garden and the guide was nice and accommodating.

        I expected better honestly. The room was clean, but there is (1) no toilet door,which make it pretty inconvenient as I was travelling with my brother, (2) no safe deposit in the room, (3) the staff did not make up the room despite me returning the key to them before heading out, (4) despite marketing themselves as a hotel with karaoke and gym facilities, the songs list has limited selection and the gym was quite pathetic. The only thing that I would compliment is that the staffs were very helpful...

        I speak mandarin so I'm not sure about their English capabilities. In any event, staff was helpful so no complaints. The hotel is near the train station and within walking distance. Cab ride is 3 minutes away accounting for traffic. Rooms are clean though beginning to show signs of age. G Good experience overall. 4 out of 5 stars is reasonable.
