This is a good value no-frills hotel. Perfect for a 1-night stop on the way to Alishan early the next Monday. It is a short 5-min walking distance to the train station where you can catch the Forest Railway or buses that go up. There is an underpass from the train station to the hotel. If you have heavy luggage,...

The hotel is just located next to the train station and near to one of the main bus station of the city. I walk to the attractions of the city on foot within a short time. The room is old with acceptable hygiene, but the price is reasonable.

I stayed here two nights as a base to head to Alishan for a day. Staff is friendly--they don't speak a lot of English, but always have smiles on their faces. The rooms are basic, but clean. The sheets on the bed were very soft and comfortable! There is A/C, which is essential in June if you aren't used to...

This hotel beats out all others if you travel by bus and train, and on a budget. The location is perfect, right across from the front side of the Chiayi station. I arrived by High Speed Train, took the shuttle bus from High Speed Train Station to the Chiayi Station, and the next day I just walked from the hotel...

Very good location, it's 5 mins walk from the train station and 10 mins walk from the night market. The room was clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to my friends if they are going to Chiayi.

We came by car and there were no parking at the hotel but plentiful of kind of free parking in the backstreets around the hotel. From the hotel we...
