Staff are very obliging and smiley. Concierge are very, very polite and informative. Patient with my parents who have a little bit mobility problem. Appreciate it very much. Rooms are clean. But indoor refurbishing style suits the elderly more than the youngsters, to be honest. Japanese-style washlets are an utter comfort and pleasure. If you have travelled the world like... More

This hotel should be marking 5 stars in this review as the location is convenient and even though the interior feels a little worn I really got its charm and the staff are really lovely. There is no bar to relax in - even though they say there is one on the 2nd floor - it's not a bar -... More

The location is convenient for business, sightseeing, shopping, almost anything you do in Taipei. Small, well maintained, and ambience is full of Japanese flavor. Almost all the staff speaks near perfect Japanese. One draw back is that there is no bar or restaurant, though they serve breakfast on 2F lounge in the morning. There's a big, Japanese style soaking bath... More

This is a somehow medium sized hotel which you would expect would be very non personal and without character. I was a bit reluctant to see the lobby interior and room design, didn't feel "SHL". However, with top both service, details such as turn down, hand written notes informing about upcoming weather and the small evening biscuit offered a nice... More

When we arrived at the hotel, the check-in staff were very helpful and and the keys and other documents were already prepared. Before we reach our rooms, the luggage was already waiting for us. I like the design of the toilets, very detail-oriented and practical. e.g., toilets with automatic flushes and cover opening and small bathtubs with non-slip tiles. One... More
