53Hotel 寶島53行館 (Taichung)

Where to stay in Taichung?
Booked 53Hotel due to its convenient location that is within walking distance (5 mins) to Taichung Railway Station. Unknowingly, the hotel is located right opposite of the popular Miyahara 宮原眼科.
Lobby
Cafe where breakfast is served.
Standard Room (Double bed) 20m²
Room is spacious and comes with the necessary amenities such as the toothbrush, razor, comb, cotton buds, dental floss, soap, shower gel and shampoo.
Laundry service is available at the basement but there isn't lift to the basement, thus you'd need to use the stairs. You'd also need to purchase the washing powder from the lobby counter at NT$30 (comes in a small pack of about 7cm x 5cm). Washing and drying of my clothes took an hour each.
Follow the instructions to wash and dry your clothes
While waiting for the clothes, you can exercise at the gym which is next to the laundry area or visit Miyahara for ice cream.
How to get there?
Address: No. 27 Zhongshan Road, Central District, Taichung Taiwan 40042
Tel: +886 422206699
Website: www.53hotel.com.tw

Nearest Station: Taichung Railway Station

1) From Taoyuan Airport, we took Kuo Kuang bus no. 1860 to Taichung bus terminal which is located behind Taichung Railway Station and walk to the hotel. Bus ride is about 2.5 hours from the airport.

2) From Taoyuan Airport, take the Taoyuan Airport MRT to Taoyuan HSR Station (15 mins) and change to take the High Speed Rail to Taichung HSR Station (45 mins). Lastly, take the railway from Xinwuri Station to Taichung Station (15 mins) and walk to hotel.
Note: If you have yet to exchange your notes, do change them at the airport. Banks are closed on weekends and main shopping centres in Taichung only exchange USD, JPY, CNY and HKD. Big hotels usually exchange notes for their hotel customers. My last resort was to travel to Taichung Airport to change my notes and rates weren't as good.
