151, HeBei Road, Sec. 3
This new, 21-room motel is one of the
latest entries into Taichung's famed luxury motel market,
and is located in Beitun district near ChongDe Road,
on the corner of HeBei Road and ChongDe 6th Street.
The rooms, which range in size from 20-plus to 30-plus
pings, are luxuriously-appointed and individually feature
different decor themes, including Bali, Japan, modern
Chinese, and the forest. The modern Chinese-themed room,
for example, resembles a cross between an upscale resort
room and a lounge bar, with an outer lounge-style living
room area, separate bedroom, chic-looking fixtures,
subdued lighting and three flat-screen TVs (living room,
bedroom and bathroom). The enormous bathroom is also
nicely decorated, tiled in brown stone with a state-of-the-art
whirlpool-style bath that--like many of the rooms--generates,
super-fine, milk-like bubbles for spa-like enjoyment.
Other rooms styles include an indoor waterfall that
makes guests feel as if they were in the outdoors. All
rooms are also come with beauty products and other amenities.
Rates range from NT$1,980 to NT$3,980 per night, or
NT$680 to NT$880 for a three-hour rest.
