Stayed for a night on business trip. Room was big and comfy. Clean and nicely done. Bathroom was good for the rate. Quite a lot of shops atound for daily needs and food. Breakfast spread was ok.

The lobby needs a bit doing over but other than that will stay again.

Trip type: Travelled on business

The room was okay for couples as it is small and cosy. There is a 7-11 which is about 1-2minutes walk away. It is about 10-15 minutes walk away from the SOGO shopping area.
Downside : 1) Carpet at the breakfast area need cleaning as the whole area has a stale smell.
2) Windows at the breakfast area need cleaning as we can see it been ages it has been clean.
3) Coffee serve at the breakfast area was extremely diluted.

The hotel does not have restaurant or bar despite stating it on their web site and on the hotel information (The hotel chairman clearly states the restaurant serves international and continental food).. There was human hair on the floor in the shower room, the windows were filthy and very limited draw space. The amenities e.g pool and spa area show signs of being neglected there was no plants or flowers to make it welcoming (The web site totality miss leads you to think otherwise. Question: How can a five star rated hotel get five stars without having a restaurant or bar?

Room tip: I can not think of anything to say......

Trying to find a western hotel in small towns is tough so this is a good find.

If traveling on business it's a good bet in this industrialized city.

It's clean. Service is good. Staff extremely polite.

They added the little touches like having fruit in room and replenishing daily. An English newspaper. A map of local things to see.

Honestly they do a great job and I was very happy to find a place like this.

I often find that great service can compensate for other weaknesses and in this case that's absolutely a fact!

Nice sleep!

We booked this hotel at the last minute and chose it because the location was close to family in Hsinchu. We notice that they are busy re-furbishing so the hotel will probably improve. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was Ok but nothing to write home about. Price was very good so when in need it is OK.
