Would I stay here again? Yes, if my main destination is New Taipei City and I did stay several times during 2015. If the purpose of your trip is typical tourism, popular dining, nightlife, or the Taipei International Convention Center the hotel may not be as close as you like to your destination. However, if you want to experience everyday... More

Great clean hotel - good breakfast great clean rooms - good international TV selection . Friendly English speaking staff . Walk in shower with dual shower heads and endless hot water. Free wifi available however seems to be a little scratchy in some parts of the room. Great value for money .

Pleasant room and friendly staff, currently renovating so was slightly noisy during day. Very close to all amenities. Breakfast not really much.... But enough to sustain. I would stay there again. MTR within 200 metres so great to get around. The night markets are within a 5 minute walk and offer a host of eaterys and stalls. Slept well as... More

There is also a small night market if you turn right out of the hotel and walk a couple of blocks and turn right again. If you turn left towards the MTR there is a small shopping are with... More

veyr good place. 30 meters away from metro station. family store is ten steps away. the front desk is very friendly. supply me lemon ice-tea without an order. all equipment are perfect. the only problem is the air-conditioning. too cold but not able to adjust the temp easily. after all, good hotel to enjoy your stay near Taipei city.

Great rooms, excellent value, average service and a little far away from the city - but still a great place to stay. It is a minutes walk from the subway which is wonderful. But it is at least 6-7 stops from the actual city centre - so it takes a while. Nothing very interesting in the immediate vicinity of the... More

I use this hotel every time I come to Taiwan on business. Although probably not ideal for holiday visitors, for business. It is perfect. Great value, friendly and helpful staff, well equipped and spacious rooms with good wifi connectivity - what more can you ask for. Food is ok - not the best but by nowhere near the worst I... More
