Clean and Convenient
We stayed here on for one night on the Nov 3rd 2018. We booked this hotel because the map indicate close proximity to the Chiayi Train station. Initially, we thought of using the train to go up to Alishan (Fenchihu) but we change our mind. We rented a car from Taipei and drove here.
Room – Clean. Have a large windows because the room was facing the street. All amenities were there. Free 2 packet of coffee and tea, hairdryer, fridge, hotpot kettle and slippers. But no SAFE. The design of the room is dated but everything was very clean. I stayed on the 5th Floor. The room is bigger than those I have stayed at Imperial H.
NOTE: My room does have cigarettes smell but I am ok with it. I did not request for room change.
Location – If you want to go Alishan (Fenchihu) via train, this is the best location. Less than 5 minutes walk. About 10 minutes to Wenhua night market. 3 minutes walk to the nearest McDonalds.
Parking – plenty of parking spaces. It’s an outdoor parking that is about 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The parking lot need a card to go in. My suggestion is to stop the car at the front of the parking lot then have someone walk to the hotel to get a hotel parking card. Then park the car and walk to the hotel with the luggage. Otherwise, you need to drive a big round to park the car.
Electrical jack – It has about 4 or 5 electrical jacks. Should be enough.
Closet – No closet. Open closet with 2 or 3 hangers.
Wifi – They have but we don’t use them. I would not be able to comment on the speed.
Breakfast – the breakfast are Taiwanese which are vegetable, rice, porridge and mantou. Small selection of salad and bread. One thing I like is their hot soya milk. There is hot coffee.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay. No complaint.
That is the closet. It’s open closet.
This is the direction to Wenhua night market. Its about 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
The direction to Chiayi train station. Very close by. Less than 5 minutes walk.
The bathroom – clean.
Breakfast – salad.
Breakfast – Taiwanese style. Most are stirfry dishes.
