No complaints!”

The Moon Lake is not fancy - just a decent, more than adequate (for my needs) hotel, nicely situated in the "restaurant district" of Taichung. The hotel is also close to the "regular" train (not High Speed Rail) station. It is also close to the long distance bus station. The room was adequate - clean and quiet - no problems sleeping. Breakfast was okay: steamed or stir-fried vegetables, congee, coffee/tea. The hotel staff were excellent: I needed a taxi to get out to a remote location in the foothills east of the city. Not only was the cab arranged, the front desk staff went out of their way to explain to the cab driver where I needed to go and how best to get there. Apparently, the location is somewhat remote, making the route there, "non routine". Front desk staff printed out driving directions using Googlemap that filled up 3 pages! Cab driver got lost after the 10th step and had to stop frequently to ask people in shops and street corners for more precise directions. ( After wandering all over hell and half of Georgia, I got to my destination!)

Comfortable at an affordable price”

location and breakfast

Had a quad room w/ window (tiny window and no view) which is quite spacious - we had 4 luggage opened up and all over the floor yet enough room to walk about. Just 3min walk away from Taichung Gancheng Station which is the Nantou Bus Company - buses to CingJing, Sun Moon Lake etc. Breakfast is good, quite a variety about 10 choices of the typical chinese breakfast - pickles, vege, noodle, porridge etc w/ coffee, tea and soy milk. The only thing that can improve our stay significantly was to add more lights and power point in the room which were seriously lacking. We also used their washer and dryer located on 1st floor beside the lift, overall was an good stay for the price we definitely can't complain.

Satisfactory experience”

I enjoyed staying here. The staff was very friendly. The facility in the room was much more than expected. The hotel's location is very close to Nancheng bus station (the station of buses to Sun Moon Lake and Jingxing Sheep Farm). Strongly recommended to those who are about to visit Taichung.

Clean, new, hotel with great staff performance”

Price, location. and staff

The front desk's ever lasting presence spoke and understood good English. She is superb. We were given a room that is for disabled traveler. Since my husband is now in a wheelchair and walker, that helped a lot. The rooms are filled with nonfunctional, modern looking crappy furniture. But the hotel is new and everything actually works till now. Including the wifi, and hot water. As usual, there is nothing to do to confront the winter chill. There is air conditioner but no heater in any of the hotels we stayed in 17 days all over the island. Breakfast is usual with non-drinkable coffee. Great location for Sun-Moon Lake bus, a night market, lots of food, train station and banks. Great price to quality ratio and I will stick to my rating due to its wonderful staff. Just ask and you will get it. Yes, our phone rang a few times at night when other guests were calling thinking we are the front desk. Enjoy the hospitality of the incredibly kind Taiwanese and you will have a great time.

Strategic Hotel in Taichung City”

Moon Lake Hotel located very strategic in Taichung city, near to Taichung Railway Station (common train station,not the HSR Station) approximately 10 minutes walk and Gancheng Bus terminal (bus to&from Sun Moon Lake and other cities) approximately 5 minutes walk. The facilites was quite standard, breakfast also standard. Bedroom and bathroom both quite clean but small. The staff also polite and made express check in and check out process.

Comfortable Stay”

Breakfast, Staff Performance, Location

This was my second time staying at this hotel. Since it was my second time, I found my way easily. It's located near the Station anyway and it wouldn't be hard for first time travellers to find there anyway. Staff were a bit different members but they were professional and helpful the same as last time. The girl even printed out the time table for me when I asked her about buses from Taichung to Taoyuan International Airport. Breakfast was super as I enjoyed this type of Chinese style dining. Staff working in the dining hall were nice people too. Room was clean, but the only short coming was that the room was a bit too dark even if you turned on all the lights. Possibly this was because it was a no-window room, but still, they could have put a brighter ceiling light or maybe even a lamp would do. Overall, it was good and I will go back when I go to Taichung again in October and January.

Bus stations nearby.”

Friendly and helpful staff, Value for money, easy to get around.

The staff was friendly and helpful. As with other budget hotels that provide breakfast, the food is nothing much to shout about. But what I love was that it is easy to travel around with the bus stations nearby where we could book tickets to travel to Sun Moon Lake and also to Taichung Railway Station (TRA) or Taichung High Speed Rail. The only problem was I had problems locating the hotel even though I was told by the reception staff that it's a 5-min walk from Taichung TRA. Maybe someone else with a better sense of road direction will do better than me.

Old Hotel in a great location near food & night market”

This hotel is located in a great location near food stores, night market and bus station Gancheng. The hotel looks old but is still clean and still comfortable for sleeping. From this hotel to bus station only walk about 5-6 minutes. If you wanna go to Sun Moon Lake then you can take the bus 2 ways for NT 350 and it will take about 2 hours drive by bus.

Overall is good, price is affordable. Room is clean. Just that 1st day having issue on the TV, where it is not properly checked by the staff on the settings. Loction wise, have to walk 5 to 8 min from Taichung Train Station to the area. However, it is near to Gancheng Station. Facilities wise, i give 5 star, with the affordable price, u can get to use the washing machine, dryer and water dispenser. Suggestion to improve on the breakfast, probably can add variety of food, and seems like the food is the same for everyday. On of the staff not quite friendly, have to talk wisely and nicely to customer time checkin, even checkin time still not reach, talk wisely. This will give the 1st bad impression. Still the others staff is very helful.

This hotel is located at the centre of taichung. It is very near to taichung bus station and gancheng (干城站, bus to sunmoonlake or cingjing) both are walking distance. Also, this hotel surrounded by many food stores and u can walk to miyahara(get an icecream here). It is very ideal for those traveller who want to stay near to gancheng and train station. The room (double with no window) can accomodate 2 ppl but do not expect the room is big.

Good location and value for money!”

Really value for money. My 2 nights stay in this hotel only cost $75 in total. Moreover the hotel is nicely renovated.

Great location! The hotel is only 10-15min walk away from the railway station. And it's 5 minutes walk away from the nantou bus terminal which I needed to take to cingjing. Many eateries around the hotel. Hotel provide very simple vegetarian breakfast such as plain porridge with some veggies and bread. Food refill is not fast enough. The hotel is newly renovated from an old building. That's why it looks clean on the outside too. The only cons is that guest have to surrender their keys whenever they leave the hotel which give rise to security issue. There was once I remembered my room number wrongly and told the receptionist the wrong room number, the receptionist simply passed me somebody else room key without checking. In other word, anyone could simply get hold of others' room key and break into the room. So do not leave any valuable in your room when you are going out. The bathroom is filled with sewage smell too. However the price of S$30+ per night, would definitely make me return to this hotel if I'm going to Taichung again.

Small but quite cosy room ”

The hotel has a perfect downtown location and is usually inexpensive. Taichung Train Station and the intercity bus terminal are 5-10min away by foot. Rooms are not big but quite cosy, although the cheapest ones without windows could feel cramped. There is no soundproofing so internal noise could be an issue. Breakfast used to be served at the 2nd floor café, but it seems this service is not offered now. Many SE Asian shops and eateries in the neighbourhood. The famous Taichung Park is a mere 5mn walk away.

Location, big bathroom, 24 hours reception

I just stayed here for one night on my way to Sun Moon Lake. I arrived at the hotel at around 3am. Check in is fast. The old man at the reception is very friendly. The room I booked have no windows. It is a little dim but is bigger than I expected. The bathroom is spacious. A little renovation will be good as the room shows some age. The location is walking distance away from the train and bus stations. It feels safe even when I was walking alone at 3am. I missed the breakfast as I woke up late but there are many dining places nearby. I will consider staying in this hotel again.

Great for all”

My second time staying at this hotel and I still wonder how they could make a profit for such price. Room is clean and big enough to open one large luggage, also well equipped (toiletries, fridge, bottled water). Only downside is that the shower is near the toilet in our room so it could get wet. We were going to Qingjing Farm the following morning by bus from Gancheng Station. It is a 2-min walk from the hotel so it is perfect for us. It is a love hotel but is not in red light district. Some eateries in the vicinity, my favs are Xie Shi Breakfast Shop (1-min walk) and Ji Guang Delicious Fried Chicken (4-min walk). (If you are carrying luggages, it is not a pleasant walk from Taichung Railway Station (around 7 mins), even if you skip the pavement and walk on the road. Thing about Taichung's pavement in smaller streets is that, each building has its own block of pavement, so it would go up and down.)
