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

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.

Walkable distance to Banqaio MRT station where you can take fast trains to other parts of Taiwan. 3. Banqaio night market is very near 4. Clean, Hygenic, Gym is good, Sauna is fine. Points to improve upon: 1. Breakfast -... More

Bathroom clean and well appointed. Breakfast was ok maybe a tad limited on Western choices but we still managed to have a fulfilling meal every morning with a good... More

But the one of the main reason I like about this hotel is the strategic location, it is only less than a minute walk to Fuzhong MRT station and... More

I was quite impressed with this hotel. The location was great. The facilities were simple and caters to your needs. The vanity was supplied with the necessities a high-end hotel has. Amazing twin shower head made shower time a rather relaxing one. I would think it would be wise to have separate switches for the bedside lamps incorporated in the... More
