Love love this Hotel”
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!
Hello Lianna~ Thank you so much for the high score. It's our pleasure to have you here! I'm receptionist Chelsea, hope to see you again soon.
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.
Hello Crystal~ Thank you for your compliment! I'm receptionist Chelsea, hope to see you again soon.
A Unique Hotel ”
Stayed for 2 nights here. The staffs were friendly, room was spacious. Walking distance to Yizhong night market & Miyahara Ice Cream shop. Free snacks. Minus point is only the light is too dim for us ladies to put on makeup :-). Overall it is a good place to stay.
Hello QUIRIN~ Thank you for your suggestion! We will definitely change our lights. I am receptionist Chelsea. Hope to see you again soon.
Wonderful staff I never met”
The hotel lobby is beautiful and good for taking pictures. And the staffs of hotel so kind and nice. Especially 美玉 and Ray are so fun and friendly. Also one staff helped us to reserve the restaurant instead of me. It was a great hotel to stay.
Hello Hyesoo~ Thank you for your compliment! It's our pleasure to help you. I'm receptionist Chelsea. Hope to see you again soon!
Very good design of space, modern design in a traditional area . One of a kind. Wish there was a chair though
Hello kin Thank you so much for liking SOF Hotel. We'll consider having a chair it the room. Thank you Please come again.
Is near to Taichung railway station , may be less than 15 min. Not recommended dragging luggage and walk to the hotel as the road is not very smooth. The room is spacious. Have free flow drinks. Next to the hotel has a very good massage call 夏都养生馆. And near tourist places and night markets like Yizhong night market and Zhonghua Night Market .
Hello Rachel~ Thank you for the high score! Our loction is very convenient and have much to experience! Thank you for choosing SOF and hope to see you again soon.
My first sight was this is an unique design hotel. Everything is perfect, especially the design and space. 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
Hello Siew, We are thankful that you chose us for this journey of yours in Taichung. It has been our honor to serve you.Thank you for your valuable advice! I hope we can once again provide the best service to you! See you next time : ) Mii, front desk staff
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.
Hello Randy^^ Thank you very much for your stay at our hotel. It is our pleasure to see your satisfaction with us. I look forward to your next visit to our hotel. Looking forward to meeting you next time~~
2nd floor rooms belongs to us! ”
We travelled in a big group, 7 rooms in total and they accommodated us by arranging most of our rooms on the same floor. All done over the counter without any prior arrangements. And just ask the staff about any food recommendations nearby and they are more then friendly to intro! Thumbs up to the service from the staffs. 尤其是晚班櫃檯的美女 😍 The rooms were totally clean and such a unique building from the outside and inside. Love the wooden planks design near the bed. Ample of space to layout 2 luggages too. Lots of good food nearby within walking distance as well. Will definitely come back here when back in tai-chung.
Hi Tan I'm glad you choose SOF, thank you for your satisfied with the front desk service, If there is a chance to come to SOF again, you can note on the booking need to arrange the same floor room ahead of time, is beneficial to reduce the waiting time. Anyway, I'll tell the night shift staff that you said she is very beautiful and thanks you guys's snack snd drink :)) Mii from front desk.
Cool looking hotel”
Room is spacious enough for me. Very near all the night markets. Design of hotel is cool too. Will stay again.

NICE AND CLEAN ”

Hello Chia~ Thank you for the high score! It's our pleasure that you have a great experience during your stay here. Hope to see you again soon!
Nice industrial design ”
Everything was great, except that the cleanliness of the room could be improved. There were quite a bit of dust and strands of hair lying around. Staffs were super friendly and more than helpful. Loved the design especially. Will recommend to friends :)
Hello~ Gwen thank you for your comment we are glad that you like our hotel, and we'll improve our cleanliness problem. thank you so much, I'm Claudia from the front desk please do come again!
Designer Hotel Shabby Chic”
The design of the hotel which recycles an old building into a cool pad will not be to everyones taste. Personally I loved the concept and the new rooms in Black & Wood were very stylish & comfortable. No restaurant but free tea coffee and snacks 24hours a day is a nice touch. 5 minutes walk to loads of bus routes. 10 minutes to Taiching Station. I would stay again
Hello Graham~ Thank you for liking SOF! Hope to see you again soon.
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. I'm receptionist Chelsea. Hope to see you again soon.
Good Design Hotel”
Somehow this hotel might look a bit creepy from images. Totally worthy to have a stay on this fantasy design hotel and we were so surprised and impressed when arrived there. The room is clean and comfort, toilet are clean. Location wise just the right point, you may just walk cross to zhanghua bank street can easily access with bus station, but a bit hard to look for night market snack food. Oh yea! they do provide tasty and hot soy milk on the dining area, it was so warmly to us on every morning.
Hi Mandy,I'm thankful that you chose us for this journey of yours in Taichung. It has been my honor to serve you. The soy milk is from traditional market,we're really happy about you like it,Hope that we can once again provide the best service to you! Mii from front desk.
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!

Overall review for a New Hotel”
Stay here for 4 nights, pleasant place to spend our time in Taichung. Pretty new hotel which open around Feb 2018. Staff was extremely helpful and makes us feel welcome throughout our stay. Top recommendation for visitor who plan to visit Taichung
Hey Valerie~ I'm thankful that you chose us for this journey of yours in Taichung. It has been my honor to serve you. You guys are relly kind and lovely :))) I hope that we can once again provide the best service to you! Mii from front desk.
Unique and cosy but seems more like hostel”
Our 2 nights stay was quite enjoyable except for the bed size. They mention it’s sufficient for 2 adults and a child but we felt the bed is too small for 3. I almost fell of the bed a few times. Cleanliness wise quite ok for hostel standard but not yet hotel level. Notice that reception also double as cafe staff. Also, all their staff are female and seems to be quite young, even the cleaning lady, are like around 20s or lower. First time encounter this in hotel line. Unique hotel design, very rustic and art feel. Will recommend to stay but do take note on the bed size for family.
Hello Micheal~ Maybe you made a mistake. We never said such thing as "it’s sufficient for 2 adults and a child". We only told you: Sorry, we are unable to provide you king size bed for you, all double room types are standard double bed type, and remind you that because of the small room size, you can not provide extra bed service, thank you. These words are still in our dialogue record. Sorry for the inconvenience you went through. We recommend you to book a two-large-bed room next time if you bring a kid older then 6 years old. Thank you for choosing SOF and hope to see you again soon.
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.
Despite the rundown exterior building, hidden inside is furnished with a minimalistic design! Very cool concept! Rooms were clean, not very spacious but still alright. Drinks/snacks is provided at the dining area. Overall it's reasonable for the price, the only downside is that the location is not quite convenient.
Hi Clarice, Thank you for your comment and sorry for your inconvenience. Our location is pretty convenient actually. there are a lot of bus stop and a night market near by. Train station is only 10 minutes walk away. Next time if you don't know how to get here or are lost of direction, we're always here to help. I'm receptionist Chelsea. Hope to see you soon again.
