What stands out the most in San Want Residences is the staff, with exception of temp help during breakfast. The genuine attitude and willingness to make guests' stay most enjoyable is the token to success in hotel hospitality. The 4-star hotel is well maintained, simple but functional. Its location is great, close to MRT with department stores nearby. The breakfast... More

Borderline between 4 or 5 stars. Would have no problem staying there again. Room is spacious, fancy, comfortable with really comfortable bed. Bathroom is well designed with a shower, bath, and mini hot tub inside. Maybe not 5 stars since isn't the best value for money in town--there are comparable hotels for slightly cheaper--but room itself is great and stay... More

The hotel service team is polite and very attentive but it does get to me that they have to greet you verbally each time, all 7 of them if they are all there, it is awkward. I would rather a gentle smile of acknowledgement, but maybe it is catered for the Japanese who may like this sort of treatment, as... More

We stayed at the San Want Residences on Nanjing East Rd. The hotel was several blocks away from an MRT subway stop, which made it a convenient location. However, it took longer to get the the MRT stop than it should have as lights to cross some of the streets are long (some cross streets did have underground paths which... More

San Want Residences ( not to be confused with the hotel of the same name) are small luxury units centrally located in sprawling Taipei. The bedroom is comfortable, though not large, with all of the expected amenities, though the bar fridge was only sparsely stocked. The bathroom is impressive with a step down Japanese style bath and huge rainfall shower... More

I took my mother on a weekend trip to Taipei. We stayed at the San Want Residences based on the reviews. I was not familiar with the area when I booked but I figured that I couldn't go wrong with a business hotel (my mom is not the rustic type). I was pleasantly surprised that it seemed a few others...
