Second time there. Still my choice for Taichung!”

This is not the cheapest hotel and frankly, there may be better ones around. But i simply cant find any serious fault with this hotel. It is clean, reliable and in a great location, it is basically in the middle of most activity. Still need to travel by bus but there is expected in a non-metro city like Taichung.

And I only had 1 roommate so I had all the space to myself. There was a mini department store nearby which you could basically get anything you needed.
