I love SOF hotel! Friendly receptionist at the counter, (lady with long black hair + fringe) didn’t manage to get her name :(. Was friendly to help answer our many queries! Hotel is conveniently located as well, walking distance to Yizhong Market and Taichung railway station! Love the interior of the hotel tho one may be skeptical of the hotel by judging its outlook. It’s really very pretty and chic on the inside. Small room that i booked but it’s very cozy and has everything i need. Love the hotel in general. Will come back again!

The Best”

It was an amazing stay at SOF with extremely friendly and helpful staff! The extra mile one of them went impressed us - we were looking for a certain item but were unable to find the past 5 days in Taiwan. When we told the front desk staff about it during a chat session, she offered to purchase it for us from the store near her house! (If the hotel manager sees this, I wish to compliment this lady from Taipei with the shoulder-length hair at the Front Desk who worked afternoon shift everyday we were there 18-22Jul. Sorry I forgot her name. She is the most helpful and sincere hotel staff I’ve ever encountered.) The other situation was that we sent our clothes for laundry service and forgot to clear the pockets of about NT 3000. The next day, the clothes were returned with the stack of notes removed from the pocket. The honesty of the Laundry staff was deeply appreciated. Needless to say, all in all, the superb experience made our Taichung stay even better!

Location is good, just walking distance abt 5 minute from Taichung train station, a lot of bus station nearby, convenient store is nearby too. I like the toilet the most, room is very clean, oh ya, there is a huge TV in the room :) If you prefer a quiet hotel, this is your choice. Will be back to SOF next time if I visit taichung again

Great!”

I stayed at SOF with my husband for one night, both of us were so satisfied and happy for this decision! The hotel is so well designed, our room (609) is not big with comfy and perfect for two people, all facilities that we saw are new and clean, even the shower head, no any water stain left! There’s a small but enough open bar in ground floor where you can find tea bags, instand coffees, hot and cold water all the time. No breakfast available from the location but very easy to find it nearby. Who will arrive with car need to be awarded that the parking place in collaboration with them is not the one in front but the one of an outlet department store nearby, 100NTD per day. We fortunately found a public parking space just next to the hotel coz it’s free from 18:00 to 20:00. Overall, well recommended and we’ll def. go back for next occasion!

Hello Cecilia~ 609 is our economical room. Economical rooms is smaller and also the cheapest rooms in SOF. Maybe you can try our standard rooms or balcony rooms. They are bigger and more comfy to stay over night! Also, we will serve breakfast in the near future. Our menu is under discussion right now! Thank you so much for recommending us.

Beside looking like an Architecture student project - not a common looking hotel but nonetheless very cool in my opinion. There was a certain degree of roughness that I could grab sense of, it's clean and all but the corners are a little rough and for the price per nights, you shouldn't trip in the stairs/fire escape... The room was sort of small but comfortable and practical despite all the luggage we were carrying. Staff is nice, spoke decent English so foreigners would make it to their room in no time but would rather have issue to get by in the older district of Taichung. All and all, I'd stay again

The hotels design is absolutely gorgeous, with an open roof at the top so when it rained it was so pretty to watch from the landing. The room was so comfortable and well designed. The staff were very nice and the hotel offered free snacks as well. The location is close to convenience stores and restaurants and a short walk to the Taichung Main Train Station. I really appreciated that they encouraged energy saving and only cleaned the room when we needed it. Which I think overall is better. Would stay in this hotel again on my next trip!

Cool, hipster, sustainable hotel in Taichung. Artistically designed ”

Was a comfortable stay in Taichung, the hotel looked like a dilapidated building but that was part of the architectural design for the hotel. Corridors were not air-conditioned; they were sustainable that way. Nonetheless the rooms were cosy and comfortable. Had quite a minimalist feel to the room design. We were provided with a mosquito repellent device as well in case of the bugs as we were there during the hot period. Room and bathroom was clean. Will recommend for travelling with lesser luggages. Great for 1-2 days stay.

Unique place, Value for money”

This hotel will give you the goosebumps when you see it from the outside. It looks like an abandoned hospital from the outside, and as you approach the entrance, it looks like it has been abandoned even before the building was completed. But as you enter, you will be greeted by the warm and friendly staff, and you start to realise that rustic look of the building is an intended design which is very intriguing. Dont get me wrong, the design was done gracefully and the whole place felt very unique and welcoming. Cleanliness was good, bed was comfortable and price very reasonable. If there's one thing i didnt like, its the lighting in the room; they're a little too dim (but i guess it's part of the overall theme), hence a bright light as an option for guests who'd like to do reading etc in the room. Overall, highly recommend this place and for the price, you cant go wrong.

Artistic hotel, but rather noisy”

Unique appearance of hotel. Looks unfinished at first but it's definitely part of the design. Staff were really nice! There's a mini food bar with free refreshments and a free cup of coffee for guests each day. Rooms look exactly like the photos uploaded on the site. Relatively clean and simple. I personally thought the rooms were slightly too dim to work with in the evening. And the blinds couldn't entirely cover the light from outside. Not sure how the pipes worked but it was just really noisy if another guest decides to take a shower in the dead of night or when the glass cups are being washed at the food bar on the ground floor (I stayed on the 6th floor and still got woken up by the noise) All in all, it's an affordable hotel for short stays, but travelers who are particularly sensitive to light or sound should reconsider.

Superb stay!”

I was initially shocked when the building looks like an abandoned old building from the outside. It was a designer's hotel indeed in the inside. Everything was great and customer service was friendly. Comfy bed and bathroom. Definitely will stay again if i have the chance to travel to TaiChung.

Comfortable and beautiful interior”

Pro: - very beautiful interior. Good place to relax - free snacks and coffee at lobby area - comfortable bed and clean toilet Con: - if you are carrying large luggages, it will feel like quite a walk from the train station. Otherwise, it is only a 10mins walk from Taichung train station - Room is on the smaller side Overall, we enjoyed our stay

Boutique Hotel with a unique aesthetic flair”

Despite having a post-apocalyptic facade and looks like it would collapse anytime, this building houses a cozy little boutique hotel within. The designer intentionally kept the raw and unfinished look. Staff are friendly and helpful; location is good. Only 10 mins walks to Taichung Main Station with many famous restaurants, eateries and shops within the vicinity. Public transportation is less developed in Taichung, so location is imperative. Facilities are absent though, as the focus is on the aesthetics and theme, which can also be the deal-breaker for some. Furniture in the room is somewhat impractical, lacks functionality and made worse by the small size. There should also be a lot of room of cleanliness (pun intended); the dusty room also smells of stale sweat. The queen bed is a let-down; isn't comfortable and is actually 2x single beds. Not the most comfortable hotel (it's fair for the price), but it's definitely unique & interesting!

Hi Malcolm: First of all, everyone at SOF would really like to thank you for leaving us a thoughtful review of your stay. We were really glad to hear that it was an interesting hotel experience for our guests. We could not tell which room that you stayed at, but if it was our economy room, which is our smallest room type, we hope to have another opportunity to host you with our standard double room or even our balcony room, as both room types are bigger in size. We also pay huge attention to our housekeeping standard and I am deeply sorry to hear about the sweat in the room. Each of our room has a sliding door that opens up to allow natural air and light through, and we always leave the slider open for a couple of hours during the cleaning as a way to refresh the room and be ready for the next guests. We thank you for brining these to our attention and we will address them with our housekeeping team right away. Kind regards team at SOF

Overall great experience ”

This place has a walking distance to public transportation (train station, bus stops). The hotel itself seems like being seriously renovated, however, it still owns its historic characters, which makes It’s a very charming place. A few things that can be a small setback is the lack of outlet assess near bathroom area so it is very inconvenient after shower when I style my hair using hairdryer. Another thing is the destinc smell on the air that I noticed when I am about to wake into the elevator to upstairs, though if you like the smell of beer you should not find it offensive.

Hi Aria, Sorry for the inconvenience you experienced. We will try our best to improve it. As for the smell in the elevator, the floor was made from elm, a precious tree lives in Taiwan that will release essential oil. That's where the smell come from. It's actually good and won't do any harm to your body. Thank you for taking your time to leave your comment. I'm receptionist Chelsea. Hope to see you again soon.
