Accomodation/hotels in Taichung?

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Accomodation/hotels in Taichung?

Postby Baas Babelaas » 24 Mar 2012, 12:44

I'll be in Taichung from the 3rd to the 8th of April, and my favourite place, Tomato Rooms, is fully booked.

They're near Feng Chia Uni, and very comfortable.

Can you guys recommend another place - under NT1000?

Ta!

If procimity to fengjia is important, I cannot help you.

But fuchun RIGHT across from the train station has rooms from 600-1000 a night (an 800 room is quite roomy) it aint the hilton, but the tvs work, you get a desk and chairs, internet (not wifi...gotto plug in your cable) and theyre super sweet, used to foreigners. many people I know live there for a few weeks when they first get to town looking for a job (we were there for 3 weeks, my wife and I).

Its been mentioned here on forumosa too, just search for it. Not near fengjia, but all the bus lines are there and ifya ever get lost when youre out and about just tell the cabi 'taizhong huo che zhan' and ull be fine. Also ifya wanna take a train (not HSR, slow train...much cheaper, but yes, slower, but MUCH cheaper) to anywhere around taiwan just walk out the front door and across the street.

downside-can be noisy cus it is across from the train station (not from the trains, but the bus station is there too and they use intercoms, and just the usual hustle and bustle of downtown)

Thanks. I might use them.

Edit: Will be staying at Tomer Hostel on Wenhua Lu, close to Fengjia Uni and night market for the first three nights..
