The Splendor Hotel Taichung4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Nice comfortable hotel, room is clean and spacious, though bath tub is slightly stained due to age. Nice gesture of the hotel to upgrade our parents room next to our triple room. Buffet breakfast menu was the same everyday during our 4-day stay, but the spread was pretty good and food was tasty. Had lunch at the teppanyaki restaurant in the hotel - a must try and highly recommended. Overall a good experience and will definitely return to stay when visiting Taichung.
Writing this review after having spent the last two weeks staying at this hotel. I must say I was very impressed with the hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean, and very large. It had two large double beds, and a bathroom with large bath and separate shower (although it would have been nice if the water had been slightly hotter). The choice of food for breakfast was excellent, catering for European, Japanese and Chinese/Taiwanese food tastes. I used the gym and pool many times. The gym facilities were very good, with plenty of equipment for a complete work out. They even had classes (e.g. yoga, aerobics). They will lend you sports shoes if you forgot to bring any with you. One issue, which I suppose is a big one, was that the wifi was extremely weak, actually unusable in the room. I could only get good wifi on the 12th floor (the floor with the main receptions and restaurants). Luckily I had rented a 4G wifi hot spot from the airport, so relied on that in the room. The location of the hotel is great, with good selection of eateries, cafes and bars close by. The staff at the hotel are very polite and made me feel welcome. I hope to stay at this hotel next time I am in Taichung. The only reason not to give the full 5 stars is the poor internet service, which any hotel of this standard should manage to get right these days.
Despite several visits to Taichung there has never been need to look for an alternate hotel. The stay each time has been thoroughly satisfying. Impeccable House-Keeping, Breakfast large enough to see you through the day, one is assured of a very comfortable stay.
The yogurts and omelettes are to eats. It is so good like you can't stop eating. There is also chocolate bars, and ice-cream. The rooms are all well-cleaned and decorated. The chef is nice there too!!! He will try to give you the salad or pudding. Those are good too.
Stayed here for one week. The hotel featured; Overly tentative staff, Terrible WiFi connection (not good for a traveller from across the world), Very poor gym equipment. Okay breakfast, but patronising staff.
We were pleasantly surprised by our 2 night stay at the Splendor Hotel in Taichung. Summary Service - 5 stars Room -3 stars. A bit on the aged side. Food- 5 stars from breakfast Convenience to downtown and HSR- 3.5 stars breakfast was great. One of the best Buffets for the price. There’s a 7-11 conveniently located across the street for those jet lagged or have a little one who is hungry. Again, the rooms were a bit dated. But the beds were nice to sleep on. The hotel was quiet. It’s a bit far from the HSR but most of downtown Taichung is. Close to shopping areas and right off of Main Street.
Rooms were more than perfect, the service is excellent and the staff is friendly and well-trained. The location is good, but parking might be a problem if you are with a car. One of the best hotels in Taichung.
Stayed there for five nights. The room had a nice view and service was amazing. The breakfast provided by the hotel continued to be good. I joined a local tour arranged by the hotel and everything was fine. Will stay again in my next visit to Taichung.
Pros: Rooms are of good size, everything is clean, good amount of amenities, 2 free bottles of water every day, comfortable beds of good size. Check-in/Check-out is fast, staff are friendly and helpful, everything is well organized (luggage hold, calling taxi, etc.) Cons: The WiFi is very unstable, slow, and unreliable. It was bad in my room, in the lobby, and in the conference I was attending. The other people at the conference had the same experience, so it wasn't just me.
Rooms are very spacious and clean, no complaints at all. Enjoyed the breakfast as well even though it was busy the staff made sure everything was flowing. Gym is a little small but was adequate enough for my daily cardio workout. Area around hotel is great, many shops and restaurants great area to go for a walk and explore.
