Stayed 2 nights in this hotel with my boyfriend and we had a room upgrade as we checked in much earlier than the said timing (3pm) - hence that was a pleasant encounter! The hotel is not conveniently located, we had to take bus 159 from the Taichung HSR to Sogo and navigate using our GPS. Oh, a plus side to taking buses in Taichung - transportation is FREE using the iPass card. The ride took us around 40 mins, while walking to the hotel took another 15 and involved crossing major intersections (not recommended for young children and elderly to walk; consider taking a taxi to the hotel). On the bright side, there is a large 7/11 just beside the hotel which provided us with much needed hot soups and drinks in the rainy weather during our stay there. Service was good, the staff were friendly and forthcoming. Breakfast wasn't great with a limited selection of food - hence would not pay extra for it unless necessary. Room is comfortable - Japanese style with a bidet- small bathtub and shower area. Not sure if I would come back to this hotel - mainly because of the location - but would recommend for families with older kids if you're looking for a spacious room!
My family of 3 stayed in room 1115 on 28 Nov 2016 for 2 nights, we booked through Booking.com for better rate. We arrived at Taichung HSR station, from there we took bus 159, free of charge using the Easy Card, and alighted at the SOGO bus stop. From there, it's about 10 mins walk from SOGO shopping mall. The walk to the hotel with luggage was bumpy as the pavement was very uneven, still we managed to walk there. But for family with small children, it is advisable to take a cab. We arrived 1 hour earlier but managed to check-in, the service was fast and hassle free. The staffs were very helpful and friendly, we asked them to assist us to charter a cab to Wuqi and the cab arrived within 20 mins. Also, they called a cab for us to the HSR station on our day of departure and it arrived in 10 mins. Very efficient. The room was awesome, large, clean and modern, almost everything was provided and with free wifi. The bathroom was clean, dry and there's a washlet too. The only imperfection was the basin was a bit too low even for my height about 1.57m but I guess it's great for family with small children. Overall, I would love to stay here again even though the location isn't too ideal but the cabs were inexpensive so it is still a good choice for accommodation.
It is very good for value place. Hotel is very clean and decent. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, helped to recommend places to visit in Taichung and even helped us to reserve a spot at a restaurant. Will recommend.
It is never easy bringing a brood of children overseas, especially grumpy children who had to endure close to 5 hours of air travel from Singapore to Tao Yuan International Airport before close to 2 hours of commute on the High Speed Rail plus taxi ride to Tai Chung so that you could check in to the hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the service provided by the personnel. They were warm, friendly and helpful (for example, one night, we wanted to make a trip to SOGO and when we told the nice uncle at the entrance, he promptly advised us to take the side entrance as a short cut). Other surprises included an installed bidet in the bathroom (it was solace for us since the portable one we ordered came only on the day we departed for Taiwan ;p) and the spacious family room we got! And the hotel was quite peaceful even though it was peak period for holiday travellers. We liked the fact we could refill our water bottles with distilled water in the entertainment room, same level as the restaurant. A slight letdown would be the breakfast provided by the hotel but while the variety was lacking, the quality was not too bad. We appreciated the hotel serving Yakult (this was also the same case in another hotel we stayed at - that will be another review coming up) for the probiotics intake for the children. Overall, we wouldn't mind coming back to this hotel again.
Very nice room, clean, well appointed. I checked in late and checked out early, so cannot offer much more info. Breakfast was adequate, next to a 7-11. Polite staff. Apparently I require more characters... ok reached the minimum.
We booked a business room. It was soooo great. The room was bright and the bed was comfortable. Also the location of this hotel is convenience. It just near Calligraphy Greenway. We had a great time there. By the way, the staffs there were all friendly. They provided luggage deposit service before and after we check in.
Stayed in Taichung many times and paid much more that Hotel 52 rates but surprised to have such a nice quality hotel located in the middle of all the action. Breakfast was good and staff were very helpful. On site do it yourself laundry was an extra bonus. Only negative was the fitness centre.
We had a very enjoyable stay at Hotel 52. Service was impeccable. Room had all the amenities I could think to need and more. Breakfast was a good buffet spread and varied day by day with a selection of Taiwanese food. Location was as the other reviewers said convenient, being close to the main road and bus station (given that, sound insulation was very good), many many malls and a huge 7-11 right beside (never seen it closed so I think it might be 24/7?).
We just left 52 hotel today after staying for 2 nights. Room is big and comfortable. We spent most of our times at the nearby science Museum and sogo. We just walk there and there are plenty to eat around.
I was offered a room in B wing - their newly built/renovated side of the building. The room was very big , clean ,peaceful and comfortable. Since I am an Indian and a pure veg (no egg /no meat) I did not any options for breakfast. There is a 7eleven a convince store right next to the hotel and the night market is also in an approachable distance. There are a few Indian restaurants also in close vicinity to this hotel. Surely Recommended for price...
