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

But that time didn't write any review as wasn't active on tripadvisor. Grand Forward is located on main road and is at... 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

first time in this forward hotel, I stayed long time in an other hotel also in Banciao this one was more convenience then this. Maybe it was the time when we was there or other things but it was not so nice not with the people and the service.

Really are a great place to stay! Yes it's a bit pricey but so worth it!! Would like to stay at here again. It's closed to night market, shopping road and it's only miles away from mrt. Plus you got buffet for breakfast.
