This is my 2nd stay in this hotel and my 2nd stay did not disappoint. If you are looking for a different area in Taipei to explore, I would suggest that you consider this hotel. Personally I liked the design of the hotel which is classy. Hotel is about 5-8 minutes walk to Nanya night market, and 1 minute walk... More

This hotel is near the Fuzhong subway station, nicely located just a few stops away from the main city area of Taipei (Ximending, Taipei main station). It is quieter. However, ask locals around and you can find local street snacks, shops selling clothes at a discount compared to the Taipei city area. The hotel rooms are large and spacious. However,... More

The Hotel was reasonable and quality and service is up to mark. Rooms are well enough spaces for 2 persons and hospitality was also good. Best thing is its near to MRT and gud malls and market is also on walking distance. The hotel is approx. 30 min distance from airport.

The room and bath room are good sized and comfortable. The gym was well eqiupped. The breakfast is also good (western as well as chinese) . In the lobby restaurant they served a few light and good dishes, but strangely enough they had only white wine (not red). .

This is a clean and solid property, conveniently 2 minutes away from the subway station and around 15 minute walk to the night market. There is a convenient store just outside the hotel making midnight purchases very easy. They have an amazing couples room at the end of the corridor which offers glass shower with steam should try for couples.... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel on Christmas Eve 2012. We had just completed making our way across the central highlands of Taiwan and were spending the final night of our holiday in Taipei before heading home. Even though Christmas is not a public holiday in Taiwan, we found ourselves like Joseph and Mary, with no room at... More

The hotel is very well situated, near the MRT subway station, with convenient access from the High Speed Rail trains (THSR). You get off the THSR and need to go just one stop away on the MRT, in order to get 100 m away from the hotel entrance. The rooms are comfortable, even though some brighter colors could give them...

Unlike many other Taipei hotels, Forward fits the bill. We paid around 110e for a night, which is a very high price for European standards, and we got a huge top class room with amazing views on the 11th floor with separated jacuzzi and shower cabin. Breakfast was quite ok. On the negative side: They offered us a rate on... More
