In One City Inn, Taichung [Taiwan]
To be honest, In One City Inn (文華道會館) wasn’t our first choice when we have decided to stay in Taichung for one night. We had made an enquiry with Beacon Hotel, which is right smack in the middle of Feng Chia Night Market, but they didn’t reply. Generally wary of properties which don’t bother to reply to guests, we booked a stay at the next best option, which was In One City Inn.
The hotel seemed well-known among the locals, and our driver had no trouble locating it at all. Like many hotels, we first had to take the lift from the first level to the hotel’s reception. Check-in was hassle-free and incredibly simply. Handover our passports and credit card, collect our key cards, and head to our room!
Since we were only going to check-in late, after a full-day tour at Sun Moon Lake, it didn’t make much sense to spend too much on our hotel stay.
Our room choice was a Superior Studio which cost only NT$2,700 per night. Because it was a weekend stay (Saturday), it came with complimentary breakfast for 2-pax. A weekday stay would only have complimentary breakfast for 1-pax.
Our room was located at the corner of the building on the 5th floor, as indicated by the red dot on the floor plan.
A pretty compact room greeted us when we open the door to our room, as you can see.
Upon opening the door, on the right side is the bathroom.
On the left is the wardrobe and the minibar area.
The minibar is complimentary! Came with a packet of cookies, a can of green tea and two bottles of drinking water.
Our simple but incredibly comfortable bed.
Without much space in our room, the furniture wasn’t anything to shout about.
Wall-mounted TV to save some space. This pretty much concludes what we have in our Superior Studio room
We had breakfast at the hotel the following morning. Not expecting much, but the hotel’s breakfast had a pretty decent (and tasty!) variety of food ranging from local delights like fried rice, soya milk and pan-fried spring-onion pancake to international selection such as bacon, eggs, walnut and mushroom salad. We spotted the hotel’s F&B staff going around tables offering freshly baked pastries, which was nice.
If you don’t want to have breakfast at the hotel, there is a 7-11 convenience store just a few minutes away.
Here is a quick overview of the area around In One City Inn and Feng Chia Night Market. A quick 5-minute walk is all that separated the hotel from an endless supply of delicious food. As you can see, Beacon Hotel is right in Feng Chia Night Market. Click here for a more detailed map, courtesy of In One City Inn.
