Our second stay at this hotel (by choice) in 14 months and I feel obliged to write if at all, much to our pleasure, the services have only improved. This itself speaks a lot about the management. Spoken English is more fluent and among many employees. The breakfast spread is enviable and being co-located with a Mall that houses several eateries and shops, an added advantage.
Because of the company contract, we can have 1 free buffet after staying here for 5 nights. The foods quality of very nice and general facility is good. The best of the hotel is still the location. It locates at one of the best area in the city. It's very convenient for living here.
Same as my previous stay, everything provided by this hotel meets my expectation. I had breakfast in the hotel. Chef Jacky Hsieh was not seen in the first few days. Later he told me that he hurted his ankle and had to take sick leave for a few days. But during his absence, everything goes on smoothly even on one morning when the restaurant was so full and crowded. Service standard and quality of food were kept in a satisfactory level, something not too many hotel restaurants can persistently maintained. In conclusion, the money I paid is worth.
Stayed here for a very short visit to taiwan. Hotel is just perfect. Staff is friendly and speaks English. Room service was amazing. Break feast is one of the best i have had. Location is great if you have work around the area. Lots of restaurants around this hotel.
Just went there two days ago. The location of the hotel is good , which is convenient for food and shopping. Also , the facility of the hotel is brilliant. You can enjoy the sauna and hot bath after the pool. The bath tub of the room is large , and the facility as well as the clearness of the room is brilliant. This hotel is highly recommended.
I have been in the Splendor for one week in April in a business trip context. I appreciated very much this hotel. My room (located on the 21st floor) was large and comfortable with a very good bed, llarge bathroom and shower. It was also very quite. People from the hotel are very nice and helpful. Breakfast at the "Brasserie" provides a larger variety of chinese, japanese, continental food. It is perfect. If I can make a little criticism: the centralized control of lights and air conditionning is not so much convenient. I would have been able to turn off my bed light from ma place in the bed. But globally my experience of this hotel was excellent.
Arrived at the hotel from the US after a horrible rerouted flight. Checked into the hotel and loved it. Apparently complementary fruits are de rigeur in Taiwan. It helped when I woke up hungry at 4 am local time from jet lag. Room is large, closet spacious & bathroom is well stocked. The toilet seat is even heated & cushioned for my sore tush. Comes with a three setting bidet. Toothbrush, hairbrush & mouth wash are provided. Shower stall is large even by US standards. Bottled water is provided with a water heater and a small drawer stocked with local tea & quaint coffee drip system. Local interpretation of "home away from home" exceeded my expectations. Here comes the "but". Gym does not open until 7 am. For frequent travelers, getting that 30 min cardio goes a long way in keeping us sane. Patrons should be able to access the gym with their room key. Other than that I'm happy as a clam with the hotel. It's not enough to take one star away. Oh BTW, breakfast is included and it's really good - solid local southern Chinese congee (rice porridge) with pickled vegetables for breakfast; oatmeal & dried fruit garnishes, coffee, breads, fruits & juices. (No cheeses since this is Chinese after all) Western breakfast food items are quirky but adds to the exotic nature of being in Asia. They even have a breakfast noodle stall to highlight the local Formosa noodle dish. I'm on a carb restricted diet so didn't do the starchy stuff and yet had loads of choices. Hope this helps my fellow travelers! May you be foot sore and happy!
Excellent staff, very helpful Arranged transport too and from the airport with ease. Took great care of my flight reservations and changes to make sure my ride back to the airport was smooth. Rooms are well maintained Towels are a little small after a bath or shower and I am not a big guy Lobby bar was fast and efficient for both food and drinks Worth a visit
I stayed at the Splendor Taichung for a one night business trip. Overall, I was impressed and look forward to my next trip. I was upgraded to a large suite that was premium and spacious. The room was clean and well appointed. The location is desirable along one of the main roads and across from a Sogo department store / mall. The breakfast was one of the better ones I've had in Taiwan with an impressive salmon salad. The concerns I had are relatively minor: - The lobby is on the 12th floor, but the elevators were efficient and a free drink coupon was offered at checkin. - The gym is dated, but spacious. They even agreed to unlock the gym at 6:30 (30 min early) upon request. I would recommend.
Still in search for the best hotel in Taichung. Stayed in Splendor and this is my experience: -Pro- - You get a free drink every day if under certain corporate program - There is quite some choice in the breakfast buffet - Staff is very friendly -Cons- - In 'winter times' (I stayed e.g. in feb) the room is really cold. You need to ask the staff for an additional heater in order to be able to sleep at night. Also at this time the water if the shower was not really 'hot'. - No free fruits on a daily basis, which is mostly standard for a Taiwan hotel in this price range - Lunch buffet is very poor. Almost all the staged 'hot food' was medium warm/cold - Very thin walls - Having to take first an elevator to the 12th floor and then the next to your room is really annoying. Especially because these are very slow (long average wait time) - beds are on the hard side Taking into account some of these major cons, the value for the price is not really in balance. I will not be staying here anymore for future business trips.
