Taichung, located on the western coast of central Taiwan, is the third largest city after New Taipei City and Kaohsiung on the island. Being the gateway to explore the mountainous areas like Sun Moon Lake and Cingjing Farm, and to discover the legacy of the Japanese colonial period in the bustling city centre, you should stay in Taichung for a few nights to cover the exciting city more thoroughly. I highly recommend you to consider staying at J&I Home in Taichung city, and here’s why!
Superb location within minutes from the largest night market in Taiwan
If you haven’t already heard, Taichung city boasts the largest night market in Taiwan – Fengjia Night Market. So what is a trip to Taichung without spending at least a fun-filled night shopping and eating to your heart’s content at Fengjia? J&I Home is conveniently located within a 3-minute walk from the huge night market in the Xitun district of the city, giving you superb access to Fengjia. All the retail shops and food stalls here open till late, only closing around midnight. With such close proximity to the vibrant night market, you do not need to worry about the trouble of getting back to your apartment to rest after a long night!
A small yet cosy room to call home for your Taichung stay
The rooms in J&I Home may be small at about 17 square metres each, but they are cosy and comfortable, just like the Fashion Temptation room you see above. Painted in soft pink with a tinge of sexy temptation, this compact room boasts the usual amenities you can imagine in a standard paid accommodation and even a desktop computer with internet connection if you need to do some work. It is also well equipped with toiletries, cups and plates and portable kettle for your convenience. There is also a sofa bed that you can use as additional bed if you are sharing the room for 3.
Furthermore, this apartment has high-technological security features installed to make you feel safe and secure staying here. The room key has a security lock that gives you access to enter the building premise. When the key is placed on the security tab in the elevator to bring you up to your room, the button to your room floor will automatically lit up. Indeed, the small yet complete J&I Home lives up to its tagline “J&I is a home, not a house”!
Excellent customer service begins right after you book a room with J&I Home
The customer service provided at this apartment is definitely noteworthy. Within half an hour from the online room booking, an email will be sent to you confirming details of the accommodation as well as a map of the area and directions on how to get there. On the morning of your check-in, you will also receive a friendly short message reminder from them detailing the directions to the apartment.
On our way to the apartment from Taichung High Speed Rail Station, the taxi driver was somewhat lost in the little alleys but upon giving J&I Home a call, they immediately sent a staff on his motorbike to direct our taxi to the apartment! Even if you encounter any issues with the room during your stay, rest assured the staff will attend to the issues promptly.
A cosy and safe place to call home while you explore the sights in Taichung
If the above haven’t already entice you to consider J&I Home for your Taichung trip, bet the affordable price of such a convenient and cosy place will help draw your attention. For a twin-sharing room, the price range is at an unbelievable 1,100 to 1,900 TWD (about 34 to 58 USD) per room per night! If you have a third person sharing the room, it is only an additional cost of 400 TWD (about 12 USD) per room per night.
With the savings from such budget yet cosy accommodation, you will be able to have a higher budget to explore and have fun at the numerous sights in Taichung. J&I Home is definitely an ideal accommodation for the budget-conscious traveller in Taichung. Enjoy your stay!
