The hotel is first and foremost a business hotel, though the size of the rooms and convenient location make it a great alternative for families too. It is about 10 minutes walk from the train station, 10 minutes away from most tourist attractions and good food options - in fact we were surprised by the fact most tourist attractions in Hsinchu are within walking distance from each other. Talking about the hotel itself, decoration is somewhat dated, though comfort is not compromised and the street noise doesn't enter the rooms, all of which are of decent size, in particular the corner room we had been upgraded to. Bedding is comfortable. Staff is courteous, even if some are not very comfortable speaking English. Breakfast is a huge buffet offering of Chinese, Japanese and Western food, which will please guests with various backgrounds. We loved our experience and will definitely stay there again if we have the opportunity to come back to Hsinchu.

Everything that you would expect from an average 4-star hotel. Hotel staffs are helpful and polite when we asked for directions and despite my parents insistence of an early check in, they were able to remain calm and professional, citing they could only try their best to make up the room once the previous guests checked out. You can request for airport pick up by emailing the hotel beforehand which we did. Hotel location is convenient as it is within walking distance to the food street near the temple and just round the hotel’s corner, there is a bustop to take a bus to go to Xin Zhu’s high speed rail station. Along the streets near the hotel, there are restaurants and bakeries to go to. There isn’t much variety of food for their breakfast buffet but I appreciate their decision to separate the China tourists from the rest of us during dining. On the 14th floor, there is a small rest area with two massage chairs, a coffee machine, vending machine and a tv, which my parents liked it a lot as the massage chairs were a great relief for them after a long day of walking. All in all, nothing too bad, nothing above expectations. Would recommend for great location.

It's located just few minutes walk away from Hsinchu train station and buses. If you like to take public transport, this is the one. It is also near shopping areas (e.g. Sogo) and local eateries. It's also near Eastern Gate, Hsinchu Zoo and Hsinchu Glass Museum. Room is clean and simple, Staff is courteous and helpful. Simple local breakfast provided. Given an upgrade which is great with little more space for my family of 4 but a little inconvenience for those whom need to do laundry at 10th floor which need to take change lift. Coin-operated washers and dryers available.

Room tip: Ask for a high floor at 10th floor for those whom need to do laundry.

I was getting some mixed messages from the reviews of this hotel and was a little confused until I realised that the hotel has moved from its previous location. It is now centrally located close to the railway station and the main shopping area of the town. Lots of goods restaurants are in the vicinity of the hotel in its new surrounds. Our room was quite modern and I would consider this to be the best accommodation we had during our 2 week travels around Taiwan. The reception staff spoke very good English and assisted us in every way she could. Overall I would say that this hotel is excellent value for money and I would highly recommend a visit.

Good decent breakfast with variety of choices, friendly and helpful staff when I needed to change room. I stayed for a total of 5 nights and needed to commute to science park every morning, the hotel provide free shuttle to the science park free of charge. It's just around the city centre thus there're nearby night life and good bbq outlet.

Room tip: Overall is good as this is a pretty safe and peaceful town
