Absolutely perfect and cozy experience”

This hotel is located in the Donghai commercial district, with convenient access to food, drinks, and daily necessities.

The owner is very friendly and welcoming, making you feel like you are staying with family in Taichung. Check-in and check-out are available 24 hours a day, making it very convenient for early or late departures. Highly recommended.

Suitable for solo travel and relaxation”

Simple and clean, converted from an old house. The bathroom is small and the water pressure is not strong. The rack for hanging clothes on the first floor seems to be broken, I don't know if it has been repaired. If you just stay for one night, there are basically no problems. It is very convenient for self check-in if you check in late.

Exceptional”

Close the door, afraid of noise, stay in the back room, walk to the main church for five minutes, the shopping area is 20 minutes away and it is easy to buy. There are many supermarkets nearby, and it is not far from the train station and bus station. The counter staff are enthusiastic and friendly, and they even helped me open the can opener and red wine. We stayed for eight nights and were very comfortable and happy. Highly recommended. The bed is clean, comfortable and quiet. Very distinctive.
