Value for Money

City Inn Hotel Plus

Experience hospitality reinvented with Cityinn Hotel Plus, a newcomer to Taichung with all the requisite bells and whistles. Located in the Eastern district, a burgeoning arts and cultural hub with a rich sense of history and place; the artistically inclined will feel right at home with Stock 20 and the Taichung Creative Park, right at our door step. Or cut loose among the cake stores and night-markets, reputably the island’s best, located just minutes away.


Hotel Quick Guide

Initially, we supposed to stay in Sun Moon Lake, however, Hotels in this area are usually more expensive than Taichung Hotels as per research that’s why it took me days before I finally settle to this Hotel. As usual, I’m on always on the look for hotels within the budget range without sacrificing location and comfort. Click each category for more deets about this hotel.

Checking-in was actually pretty fast and easy. As mention above, I booked this Hotel via Agoda and chose their pay later option which is very convenient especially when you have a maxed-out card and if in case you have last minute changes.

Mini Reception Area

Before we proceed to Sun Moon Lake, we make use of their common area: first, we enjoy cups of coffee (literally 2-3 cups to keep us awake) and then, Gelai and I clean up a bit at their wash room which is newly renovated and spotless by the way.

Coffee, Tea, Chocolate, and Milk Tea for free all day 24/7. How convenient and economical for budget traveler ^_^

 The Room

I love their concept! Each floor I guess has its own theme and for our floor which is on the 10th floor, it’s obvious that the theme is Music. To sum it up; its modern, creative and fun. From the moment you walk into their hallway, you can expect that you’re going to enjoy your room. Each door has a kawaii vinyl signboard and corresponding room number to it.

Super Artsy Hallway

Just like the usual, they’re using electronic cards for room and electricity. There are two Hershey Kisses as a welcome gift and a welcome card for their guest.

Welcome Chocolates!

And as expected, we do have a cute room with Samba murals all over the place. The room is enough for two people with enough space for luggage. The hotel finishing is new and modern. They also provide the necessary except for closet but they do have a hanging rack for your dress. They also provide toiletries and that’s actually a plus for the rate that we paid for.

Our Twin Room ^_^

Flat TV and Long Desk

Shower & Toilet

Coffee and Tea Making Facilities

 The Extras

Although we stayed here for just one night, I can say that I wouldn’t mind spending a week here since they provide great service and do have a nice common area with facilities like lounge room, computer room, 24/7 coffee and tea station plus a laundry area where you can wash your clothes.

 At Check-out

As with the check in procedure, checkout was quick and hassle free. They also gave us a clear instruction on how to get to Taichung HSR Station via Taichung Train Station.

24 Hour Front Desk

 The Location

Aside from its rate I chose this because of its location. Its a 1-2 minute walk to Taichung Station and roughly 0.5km from the city centre which made the hotel accessible to most part of Taichung.

16 kilometers to Taichung Airport (RMQ) and 81 kilometers to Chiayi Airport (CYI)

100 meters to Taichung Railway Station

550 meters to Gancheng Bus Station

1.7 kilometers to Tai An Hospital

150 meters to Family Mart
