Tempus Hotel Taichung4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I read several reviews before coming here and I honestly don't know what they were talking about. This place does not seem "tired". I've stayed in top hotels around the world, this one is right up there, maybe the lobby is not as grand and fancy as some really high end places but honestly who needs an over the top fancy lobby? This is my first time to Taichung so I'm not really sure if this is a great location, but with the bus line out front on one of the major arterials in the city, it should be easy to get most places. (Some friends helped us with the bus)Obviously taxis are plentiful. One of the reviewers said there were no English speakers. My experience was the opposite. Staff had remarkably great English. There may have been one time where we had to speak to someone else because of a language barrier. Staff is incredibly friendly. Our reservation had free breakfast and it was really good, with a large selection of Asian and western foods. The gym is in the building next door, which is a little weird but no big deal. Use the 3rd floor of the gym, there is better equipment there. There is also an outdoor pool which I never used, it may cost extra?? Rooms are spacious, as are the bathrooms. The bed is a little firm for my liking but not bad. Big TV, and free water in the room. No complaints!
Call about a special request, none of the staff speak English hence spend quite some time going back and forth. Lovely hotel with great spacious room. Location is good, at the center of Taichung.
Rachel did a great help to booked rooms for my family. Two king sized near by another triple room. Rooms are very clean and nice layout. Bath room is also bright and very clean. There were some confusion with the parking area but front desk agent handle well. Two building on each side of the street. It's kind of confusion for new visitor. Only staying for one night but it's a very convient area in Taichung. The pool is also great but weather is cold, so not planing to go~
台中市最好的游泳池 跟spa 飯店 ， 我們每次回台灣都是第一選擇 ，大概住800次了 附近很多吃了 也有便利商店 租車 等等 去哪都方便 Good location and the best swimming pool and sauna in Taichung, every time when we back to Taiwan that's a first choose, so I will 100% recommend!
I've been staying here for so many years, and while the staff and service are top-notch, the hotel itself is tired. The restaurant is acceptable at best, with inconsistent offerings from day to day and looks dirty with badly stained carpet. Room service menu is rather limited, but acceptable in a pinch although it's best to eat at one of the many great restaurants in the area anyway. The "bar", Le Bar is a joke. Can you get a drink? Sure, but you'll be the only one there besides the bartender. Not inviting whatsoever. If it weren't for the excellent service from the staff this would be a 2 star hotel anymore; there's just too many nicer places for the same amount of $.
Can't fault the tempus. They bend over backward to be accomodating to every request - if you want a soft mattress...request one! No problem. Great hotel. Very reasonable price. The rooms are generous and kept to a high standard. Great location (close to many good restaurants just one block away). The restaurant for breakfast is great. Haven't had dinner there. The gym is well equipped too & they have an indoor pool. I really can't fault this hotel. I've stayed there on five seperate occasions & never had any issues at all.
An above average hotel smack right in the middle of the business district of Taichung. Was staying here as part of an interlude when visiting the sun moon lake. There aren't too many places of interest around this area. The hotel does give you free access to a health club next door. Other than that there's not too much to complain about as the hotel does give decent service for its price. Overall I would recommend this place as a halfway house when planning a visit to Nantou.
Both the room and the bathroom are spacious. The bathroom has a separate shower and bath tub. The shower in my room did leak slightly but the bath mat was able to soak up all of the water. To enhance your sleeping comfort, a pillow menu is provided. One phone call and your choice pillow will be hand delivered to your room.
I have stayed at the Tempus on two different occasions and had great experiences both times. The rooms are nicely designed with plenty of space. The bathrooms are incredible with an in-floor tub and a shower. The fitness club next door is really nice and has everything you need to stay on top of your routine while traveling. The breakfast buffet has a nice selection of food for offer. I did not have any trouble finding something to suit my tastes there since they had a nice mix of western and more traditional local options.
The service was excellent. Check in and check out was smooth. The room is big and very comfortable. The bed was also good. No noise outside. The breakfast is very good with many options. I also like the location, close to good bars and restaurants.
