1205hrs: Future Star Hotel 明日饭店 (NTD$1080/night, no breakfast) Tel ~ 886-2-23755500 / 23755229

Phone booking ~ payment upon check-in only (cash or credit card) - Ximen Station exit 6 (about 2min walk)

Check-in time should be 1500hrs noon, check-in earlier can be arranged at extra cost (about NTD$300/3hrs) or you may leave your luggage in the hotel “free of charge”.

Since we going to Wufenpu, so temporary leave our belongings in the hotel. Note: bring along your valuable and important documents with you (passports and etc…)

See from outside, Future Star hotel looks not that good and quite old, but actually their rooms are quite new and clean, if you going there try to request to stay at 7th floor (which just newly furnished not long ago)... We are not lucky enough, the rooms at level 7 are all fully booked even though we call for booking 1 month in advance... so end up we stay at level 9...

We are given NTD$200 discount voucher which can be used it for discount on weekdays stay (Monday - Thursday).... so our last 2 day stay become NTD$880 only... Wow! much better than the hotel we stay in Kaohsiung...

Got bathtub some more....
