        The cheapest rooms are hideousWe booked the cheapest room at first - 2700 NTD for 2 nights and it was the beginning of a nightmare: the bed sheets feels damp, the walls are falling apart and looks like someone had a big fight in the room. The ventilation isn't working good, apparently, as the room was full of moist-y smell. Albeit asking for a non-smoking room, a lot of people apparently had smoked in it. The shower screen door was broken and again, full of a pungent smell from the mixture of moist and cigarette. The last straw being that the bed side lamps couldn't be turned off - we called the hotel staff and they instructed that there should be buttons next to the bed for turning them off. After telling them that there isn't such a button, the lady simply told us that: "Well I guess it cannot be turned off then". I don't blame the poor lady in the front desk, but that room just sucks. ==== 5 minutes laying in the bed and I decided that sleeping a full night is simply not practical, so we paid for upgrade

        There are better hotels around hereWas a stop over for us as we arrive at the airport later in the day. I saw a few better hotels around. This hotel is in the middle of a small lane. Cars cannot enter so you have to stop at the end of the street and bring your luggage in yourself. Second bed is like a makeshift bed and is very soft. Not good but acceptable. For the price I think it is fine. Breakfast is not good. If the local porridge and vegetables does not suit you, then there is only plain bread to be toasted with choices of jam, peanut butter, butter.

        Location and Free laudry are good.”

        It is located near Hsinchu train station.(Not HSR just Train) It takes about 3 minutes by walk also near by shopping centre, restaurant and bar area. You can enjoy until mid night. It would be really good for enjoying. Also on the top of the building there are laundry and dry mashines, you can use those for free including powder. The others are just so so. The room is big enough to stay. The room was clean but the furnitures are old.

        Great location hotel”

        We stayed in a double with no view. Room size is comfortable, bathroom is very spacious, furnishing is dated (we are not fussy people so no issue here), mini fridge in room, water dispenser in room and mattress is very used and hard. Daily cleaning of room available. Reception and housekeeping staff are friendly and quick to response to our requests. The young female reception staff displayed patience and tact managing issues when the hotel was fully booked during the 28 Feb holiday. Location is good: just 5 mins walk to train station, 5 mins to East Gate, big shopping mall within walking distance and lots of eating places around.

        it's a nice stay. the staff didn't really speak English but really friendly and helpful. the overall condition of the room is beyond the price expectation so it's good. the breakfast is okay for any traveler even if you don't like Chinese' food. the environment outside the hotel is also good. You can easily find a place to shop or buy food so you won't ever get starve. The location of the hotel is great because it has a close and easy access to Sogo department store, Hsinchu Train Station and the famous East Gate.

        each level is cutely decorated with different themes, such as sports, horoscope and dinosaurs and i personally like them. the room we were allocated to was definitely not suitable for travelers with kids, not sure about other rooms they had though. i think it is value for money and the staff are friendly. very near to the station and city attractions.
