Central location, value for money, facilities

The hotel is situated extremely near to the train station which is one of the busiest area in Hsinchu. The hotel room is of good size. There are fridge, water cooler/boiler, safe and all toiletries. I paid only about sgd 30 and it includes breakfast, extremely value for money. The only 2 cons I can think of is that the wifi is rather unstable, and the room can only be checked in after 5 pm. However, I arrived at 4.15pm, the staff allowed me to check--in. I would recommended this hotel.

Great value, super staff, excellent location and breakfast, love hotel”

This hotel is cheap (even for a "superior double") and just a short walk from the train station. We arrived early and we not allowed to check in until 5 pm but the nice staff allowed us to leave our bags and let us have free coffee, which is available 24 hours in the lobby. When I say the staff were nice I mean they were totally ridiculously nice and helpful and friendly! They also provided us with a map and walking directions. The room décor is pretty hilarious: ours had a satin bed spread and a bizarre school bus theme mural. And the room came with freebies like--two condoms! This is totally a love motel, which should be pretty obvious because they offer 3 hour rest breaks (explaining the late check in time). But don't let that stop you, since the room itself is fine, with a decent bed and a hot shower. The towels weren't the newest and there were a few tumbleweeds of hair that on the floor that didn't come from our heads, but it wasn't too skanky all things considered. Anyway, they have free WiFi and breakfast was outstanding---there were so many options! Breakfast was like going to a buffet restaurant, so tasty and nutritious with lots of savory choices. Really quite a great value for the low price and convenient location. And hey, maybe you could get into the love motel mood, wink wink.
