Good 6.0
The staff was in general very friendly in attitude but they were not so helpful in terms of giving transport advice. Most of the times I asked about public transport, but they would refer me to their private tours or taxi. For several times I asked for their advice on specific routes that I'd like to take to see the sights nearby, and they would tell me that my routes are impossible in terms of transport unless I take their private tours. Due to budget constraint I only took one of the private tours, which was fine, but it ended up all my other planned routes worked out perfectly with public transport. I understand that the staff might want to promote their own private tours but I was also very disappointed that they gave me false information. The rooms were alright, cleaners were here regularly and the bathrooms were very clean.

Cheap, well-located but just missing too much
To be fair this place is cheap (~AUD $75/night) but it seems they've been a bit too mean with things that don't cost much but make for much enhanced travel. There is nowhere to store toiletries i.e. a basin; only one option to hang a towel so bath mat, hand towel, shower cap etc. go where? This is a humid, warm city even in winter - aircon is pretty much a necessity but mine continually spat water and placed directly above the bed that's not pleasant... I'd have been delighted with the room decor if I were a 7-year-old boy, a bit much for adult accommodation. Nowhere to hang clothes. Surprised to see my emergency escape option was abseiling out the window... Very surprised the "hotel" don't have proper maps on hand, only a few photo copies of certain areas i.e. can't provide Taichung maps but do have a several-block radius of the area. I know google maps are easy but with international travellers not having internet access on phones this is really surprising. Fine for a very basic but clean stay with good security.

Overall the hotel is nice for its price and location. Staff is nice, only when leaving, I asked for a taxi, the front desk just sat there while the taxi was outside. I waited for 15-20 minutes and had to ask him if that was my taxi, which he confirmed yes. Funny how he didn't let me know right away. Talking to the taxi guy, he said typically the station notifies the front desk right away. The room was small but good. Only complaint is occasional smoke smell coming from somewhere within the hotel. It was not from outside and I couldn't find the source. Walls are thin and one night there was a group in the next room making a lot of noise.

Poor 2.0
My family stayed at this hotel for just one night and ended up with mosquitoes bites. My daughter's face become red and got dots. Her ear is swollen because of the mosquitoes bites. Me and my husband's leg also affected. The mosquitoes are very big and poisonous. We are scare and worry whether our daughter's face will have scars or not. Please think twice if you would like to book and stay at this hotel. It is totally NOT recommended. Note: I tried to attached photos of the mosquitoes bite but dont have upload button. If you see the photos, you will be shock.

Room not as advertised. Will never go there again!
Advertised as having wired internet connection but actually has none. I also paid extra for faster WiFi, but it only has a public WiFi available. The one that requires login on my floor can be connected, but supplies no internet! Therefore it is completely not secure (for those who don't know, wireless connections can easily be faked by hackers in the vicinity; if you log into their network, all your passwords will be stolen, no matter how good the encryption).
