We stayed only one night in Taichung on the way from Lugang (Lukang) to Taipei. There are lots of accommodation options in Taichung and we managed to find a hotel which was reasonable and close to the station. Here is our review of Huang Kai Hotel (Royal Hotel).

Location

There was no sign at the entrance, but…

Huang Kai Hotel (Royal Hotel) is located 1 km away from the railway station of Taichung. “Huáng Kǎi” is the Chinese pronunciation of the word “Royal 皇凱”, so they are the same hotel. There was no sign for “Huang Kai Hotel” in English, — it only said, “Royal Hotel” with the alphabet. That’s why it was not very easy to find the hotel.

We found the entrance of the building according to the address, but you may be able to approach the hotel reception on the sixth floor from the entrance of the Royal Hotel.

It was not really a quiet place because it’s close to the station and in the middle of the city centre.

The room was big enough to have a double bed and a sofa. There was a fridge, an air conditioner, a table and a kettle in the room. In the fridge, there were two cups of water and there was a water server at the reception on the sixth floor.

The bed was clean and the mattress was soft. Overall, the room was old, but very clean.

There was a bathtub. The shower was very hot and powerful although I had to wait a few minutes to get a hot shower in the morning.

Shampoo, shower gel, towels, toothbrushes were provided.

The toilet was clean too.

Service

The reception was on the sixth floor. If there is nobody, you can ring the bell to call someone.

The guy understood basic English. He seemed friendly. On the reception floor, there was a water server and a microwave.

We stayed on the eighth floor and the WiFi worked well.
