Very near to Taichung Bus Station and Taichung park”

Pro: very near to Gancheng Bus Station & Taichung Bus Station (400m) & Taichung Park (very cool park, many birds, pigeons and squirrel here) Cons: need to take bus to Fengjia Night Market. Miyahara (about 600m), and Taichung 1st and 2nd market (about 800m). Still a 10mins walking distance only thou. Hotel is VERY clean and VERY spacious. The bathroom is enormous!! Coffee sachet provided at rooms is excellent. And the price is most valuable to me for the triple room. And Agoda provide the cheapest of them all and you pay nothing until 3 days prior to arrival date. Please take a note that this hotel "probably" only available for advance booking up to 3 months ahead.

Strategic location”

Strategic location, recommend tourist places to visit, clean

Actually we are glad we shifted to this hotel during our 3rd day in Taichung. The staffs were friendly, they even provide additional information (i.e. Direction to Carrefour through the underground). We really like breakfast served (cooked porridge with other side dished served). The hotel is located same row with lots of transportation companies. Travellers can take buses from Taichung to CingJing or even High Speed Railway Station in Taichung. If you travelled from Taoyuan airport, the buses stopped opposite the hotel (Gancheng station). They actually put us at 13th floor, so it is really quiet with spacious hotel room to move around. My parents were pleased and it is value for money.

good location which near buses to Qingjin, sun moon lake and xitou”

location is good but kinda far from taichung tra. u need to walk about 10 minutes on the busy road. hotel is ok but and it looks kinda old but location wise is the best ! because it's near to Nantou bus which may take to you to xitou, sunmoonlake, cingjing. we took a taxi from VIP hotel to taichung hrs and it cost between 200 to 300 twd which I think is cheap. ( free from hassle if you have large luggages). the hotel is room is ok ( not big yet not small) the bed is kinda hard too. overall the place is good because of the location and it is good for budget traveller. there is a bus stop ( gancheng) just near the hotel which is very easy for you to travel around taichung. there are lots of breakfast around the hotel too which is really convinient. the nearest night market is yizhong and if walk it takes 10 to 15 minutes which is ok and convinient.

Good location and worth of money”

The time I visited they have changed their name to Palmer Hotel, as during the booking the name was VIP hotel. They just recently finished the renovation and you could feel it looks brand new. The bed is comfy, the room is big enough for 2 ppl. 711 is quite far but the HiLife (another convenient store) just few shops away.

Decent Stay, Good Location”

I took the bus from Taichung HSR to hotel which took 40 mins, hotel is just stone throw away from Gancheng Bus stop (干城站). Check in was fast, room was clean and spacious & all basic amenities are provided. Wifi was good. I didnt try the breakfast. It is walking distance to TRA and there are few good shops around the area (for food). Also, the Nantou Bus to Cingjing & Sun Moon Lake is just within walking distance of hotel. Just need to exit the hotel, turn left and walk down two rows of shops to the Nantou bus ticketing shop 南投客運 (you wouldn't miss it, there'll be a lot of buses and people queuing up). Note that there is no advance ticket sales, you will have to go queue and buy ticket on that day itself. You can also get to Fengchia market using bus 25 or 35, but you'll need to cross the road to the other Gancheng bus stop.

Great place & value for money”

We travel in a family of 5 adults. the hotel upgraded our room to a family room for 8 which gave us ample space to move around and put our stuff. The room is clean. However, the shower was a little soft. Located 300m from Taichung Bus Terminal & Train station, 1km from Yi Zhong Street and Miyahara Ice cream. Many buses available for travelling to other places within Taichung. Recommended place if you are planning to do day trips out of Taichung.

Decent Hotel with Good Location”

The location of the hotel was approximately 5 minutes ride away from Taichung Train Station. Very convenient and accessible. Even though the hotel was right beside the main road, we could not hear any noise from the road inside the room. The bus stops near to the hotel had many buses to the different places in Taichung City so it made travelling around the city convenient. Yizhong Night Market was about 10-15 minutes walk away from the hotel. The room was sufficiently big for 4 people and the beds were comfortable. However, the hotel WIFI was not good. We could not connect to the WIFI and the signal was weak when connected. Ended up having to use our own portable WIFI router to access the web. Breakfast was decent but don't expect a wide spread of selection. Mainly Chinese cuisine was offered for breakfast. Staff were friendly as well and provided assistance when required. Would definitely recommend this hotel to people who just need a place to rest after a day of exploring Taichung.

Nice to stay here”

I was first time went to taichung, my friend recommended this hotel because of near by nantau bus station. Hope we can meet again in another group as long as i can get the same price. Unfortunatelly, if you want to having dinner at night you have to walk far away about 1000 meters because hard to find halal restaurant in taichung

Excellent location - walking distance from Taichung train station (you can spot 博奇饭店 greyish sign board from the station and walk towards it). Gancheng bus station is conveniently located in front of the hotel, you can download Taichung Bus Tracker app to help you navigate bus routes. There are also a few long distance bus operators near the hotel to take you to Cingjing farm and Sun-moon Lake.

We booked a room for 6 which had 3 double beds and our own bathroom. It was clean, spacious, and cosy. We loved the breakfast buffet and we also had no problems with luggage storage before and after checking in and out. The hotel clerks were all kind, accomodating, and helpful. Location was great, it was near/accessible to everything/everywhere. Would definitely book again if we go back to Taichung. Thank you for the lovely stay, VIP Hotel!

Hotel with Great Location in Town”

Location, Staffs service

The hotel is located near to Taichung Railway Station (about 5-10 mins walk). It's convenient for us to stroll around the city, or take bus to nearby places of interest, and travelling to Taipei via train after check out. The only problem we had was the bed, we booked room with queen bed, but found out that the "double bed" was a joined of 2 super-single beds. They clean our room everyday even we did not request so. Read some negative reviews about their breakfast, but we think it is not that bad / it is edible. But definitely not a 4*hotel international buffet breakfast. Overall stay is pleasant, but I think I'll rate it maximum 3* only.

There are buses nearby the hotel available to a few attractions (xinshe district, Feng Jia market) which is pretty convenient. Hotel is clean. Staff are friendly. There is a convenient store nearby. As our breakfast are not included, there are a few breakfast choices around the area if you would like to try their local breakfast. Just that the nearby train station is under renovation so it's a longer walk to the hotel from that station. Otherwise we have a pleasant 2 nights stay in VIP hotel.

Good location, very affordable”

The hotel seems to be an old building from outside, but once you get in, it feels like a new building/ hotel. The rooms are clean, well lighted, high ceiling, modern furnitures and way cheaper than those near the Taroko Mall (Personally, I didn't go to Taichung just to visit the mall every single day, so staying near the mall is not for me). Would recommend this place, as bus stops are right in front of the hotel. Very accessible to multiple bus stops for different routes, Taichung Train station, Nantau Bus Terminal, and Taichung Bus Terminal.
