Very comfortable hotel with free parking. Staff were friendly and helpful. They quickly used Google Translate if required. Delicious, generous breakfast with great coffee. Location is on a busy road but the hotel is very quiet. Bus stop is very close. We caught the bus to the botanic gardens, science museum and river walkway.

I booked 2 double rooms with windows and a suite. All 3 rooms are great and spacious, especially the suite with the additional sofa and TV for chilling. The bathtub has a TV and the kids just love it! Some floors have water dispenser which is great for replenishing your drinking water supply. From 1-8pm, there is an area for you to just relax and get some coffee, tea and juice. Also some kids entertainment to keep them occupied. The staff are polite and helpful too. Breakfast is sufficient though nothing to rave about. But it is fine for us. ||The hotel is conveniently located near Feng Chia Night Market which sadly, has reduced in scale over the years, likely due to Covid. However, there are still plenty of food options nearby. The breakfast/lunch place just across the hotel is really awesome! Worth a try!
