Staff service”

We would like thank the ever willing and helpful staff at the Twinstar Hotel in Taichung especially Mr. Ting Ju Ching, who took the extra effort to help us retrieve our handphone left behind in the train .With all the patience in the world, he spent more than 20 minutes on the phone to contact the train service from Chaiyi to Taichung. Within 45 minutes he confirmed our phone was found in Taicpei, and will be sent back to Taichung Railway Station the following morning. Our phone was sent back to the train station the next morning from Taipei to Taichung where we were staying overnight at the Twinstar Hotel. We are very grateful to Mr. Ting for, making our Taiwan trip a successful and a Happy one!!! My son left behind an expensive camera on ETS train from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. When we called back Immediately. Straight away the answer is NO. If only the People in Malaysia can learn to be as honest as people in Taiwan. Once again , Thank you very much Mr. Ting.

Tourist.”

Train and bus services within 5 minutes walk from Twinstar Hotel. Efficient five star star-local bus service to any where in Taichung, and very helpful information center at the Taichung Railway Station. Honest and clean and feeling safe environment throughout the country which we made a full circle clockwise round the Taiwan island. A very good impression of the country’s citizen. As my wife and I are in our 70s, we were always given seats by the ever respectful citizens in buses. We will always remember with great gratitude, and that comes from this country’s good schooling system. I will be back to this well cultured place.

A basic hotel opp the Taichung TRA station”

This was the first time we visited Taichung and also the first time stsying in Twinstar Hotel. The hotel was just opp the Taichung TRA station - about 3 min walk after exiting the station and at the Fuxing Road section 4 - which was one of the busier main road.. There were also many food stalls and eateries surrounding the hotel. And there was a very big and modern shopping mall - The Taroko Mall just next to the hotel. There were a Carrefour, uniglo, H&M, Daiso etc. Room - we booked a superior twin room with 2 queen beds. Space was good except we found it too dim to our liking. The room was basic and a bit old fashioned per said.. but good enough for a short stay. At least the room was clean n comfortable. They were still using a key lock system with a big stick attached which was used to slot to activate the lighting in the room. Breakfast included but same dishes for the 2 days we were there. Not fantastic. Overall, a good stay since it was located well.

Hotel near to new Taichung Train station”

Pros... Very easy to find once u exit from Taichung train station, turn right and go down the escalator, on the left, u can actually see Taroko Mall & Twinstar. Opposite the hotel, there are small eateries. In Taroko Mall, there is a Carrefour & on the 10th floor, there is an amusement park... U can buy the tokens and play billiard, darts, etc.. It is good and fun for young children. It is definitely cheaper than Singapore. There are buses to Fengjia and Yizhong Street but u need to know where is the exact bus stop... There is a direct bus 901 to Gaomei Wetlands, 1hour journey from first sq bus stop..

Cleanliness, good location and friendly service

Just want to stop over at Taichung for a night and found twinstar hotel on Agoda. It was really good and affordable. The location is great as it just mins walk from Taichung train station although the area can be busy and crowded but the hote is on a quiet road and the best part is it located next to a big shopping mall with cinema and many nice restaurant. The reception upgrade us to the top floor, bigger and newer room. Will stay there when I visit Taichung again.

GREAT HOTEL”

Good place to stay, very nice and helpful staff. If you came by THSR please take TRA to Taichung sta. the hotel is nearby there, don't take the bus, it's very very complicated. For me Taichung isn't a good place to travel, there's nothing much, few bus and each place is quite far from each other. I didn't have fun there, Taxi there, really ripped off your money, their driving is worst! but anyway, this hotel made Taichung better, I recommend this hotel if you want to go to Taichung. No bedbugs, tiny room but acceptable, breakfast is not that yummy, but acceptable.

Good centrally located business hotel”

The hotel is centrally located on a vibrant avenue, just a few steps from the east exit of Taichung Train Station. Room has a good size and is quite comfortable. Courteous staff. Hearty buffet breakfast. At times, the hotel offers rates that are irresistibly low. Internal noise (noisy neighbors next door or upstairs) could be an issue though, but this seems to be a very common problem anywhere.

This hotel was located in perfect location, very near with Taichung Railway Station (which in turn also near with Taichung Bus Station) and adjacent to Taroko Mall (literally next door). In addition to Taroko Mall, Lots of restaurant and shops nearby. The hotel provides free breakfast with ample variants, the rooms also cleans. Despite its perfect location, the price is surprisingly low, thus really value for money.

Location, Service, Breakfast

Hotel is situated just beside Taichung TRA (~5mins walk) but remember to take the correct exit from Taichung Rear Station (Underground Passage). It is also near bus station where you can book buses to kaohsiung, taipei etc (around 200NTD). Ask for direction at the visitor information centre at Taichung TRA and they will point out to you the place to take bus to cingjing, sun moon lake etc. The hotel is located just right beside Mode Mall, a newly open shopping centre with Carrefour, Macdonalds etc. The room was comfortable and cozy. The breakfast is good too.

Strategic location near TRA Taichung”

Strategic location near TRA Taichung. Very convenient, within walking distance to convenience stores like 7-11, Family Mart, fast food like KFC, McDonalds, local cafe and restaurants. Next to Taroko shopping mall with Carrefour supermarket, H&M, Uniqlo. Service very good and efficient but breakfast can be crowded during weekends. Many Japanese tourists use this hotel. Very clean and friendly, helpful staff. Asian breakfast very basic. 7am to 9.30am. Dining hall on Level 2 but when crowded, overflow to Level 1. Tourist attraction like Miyahara and Gancheng Bus station within 5 to 7 min walking distance. Japanese shopping street near Miyahara. Many tour groups use this hotel so can be very noisy at night. Apart from that very convenient base to visit Taichung and surrounding regions. Public transport accessible.

Affordable and Convenient”

Located just a few minutes' walk from Taichung Railway Station (後站), the hotel was well-situated and easy to find. The room rate was quite reasonable, even when it was a holiday weekend. Next door is a mall, and across the street are plenty of food shops. The buffet breakfast was simple, but a little bland for me. The room and washroom were clean; mineral water bottles and clean towels were provided every day. Sadly, we couldn't figure out if the mini-fridge could be switched on (it was old and kinda yellow inside, signs of old age). Also, the windows in our room were facing another building (like, a service balcony), so don't expect much of a city view. Customer service is good and efficient; the staff were friendly and welcoming. Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you're on a budget but are looking for a hotel near the train station.

Most preferred hotel in Taichung, good buffet breakfast, next building is Taroko Shopping Mall wide variety of food and also Carrefour. just 2 minutes walk from Taichung Train Station, If taking HSR, exit and in same station (Xinwuri) ,take the local train, just 4 stations to Taichung Train Station, NT$15 and 10 minutes ride, better to take express train from other cities to alight at Train station. Sun Moon Lake and Ching Jing farm can be visited within the same day, hotel also recommend other local tour using public transport. Also next to station is Inter-City bus terminal.
