We spent very nice days in Taichung. We were very close to a lively and crowded night market. The only bad point was that we were a bit far from the main station and so it was a bit long to reach the buses which went to Sun Moon Lake or to the others locations around the city.

A very pleasant surprise find for a B&B stay. It is truly a value for money stay and having excellent character room. Will go back to Tomato Rooms again should I visit Taichung!

With Fengjia Night market just right below your doorstep, no worries about food. Host provides daily room service, good deal considering the price. Location is far off from main Taichung town though, needs a bit of traveling time to get to town area.

The sign of the reception area could be much clearer. It's really hard to find the place, even though it was the second time I'm staying. Please do put up a huge sign indication Tomato Rooms at the door, something that can also be seen at night.


Excellent location for people who wish to stay near the Feng Chia Night market. Thumbs up for the clean and comfortable room with hotel feel. However, the lady staff was not very friendly and it will be great if the check-in can be done earlier.


The staff is not very friendly, seems like she is not in good mood. We ask for recommendations and she asked us to find out ourselves. And the room we stayed is not quite the same as we saw in the picture in hostel world, not so 'cute' and 'characteristic'. But, the hostel is good enough and like a hotel to us, worth the money. If we come for the night market here, surely stay at tomato room.
