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

Good location and clean room with nice bath amenity. The room with park view is enjoyable. Easy access to public transportation such as MRT – 10-minutes walk, and buses.

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

I thought I should write a 2nd review. On a returning visit, the front desk actually repeated some of the concerns I had mentioned during my previous stays. Ie pants press didn't work for me so they arranged an iron. I explained that previous pants press wasn't working properly and not that I don't like them. The pants press this... More

Stayed at San Want Residences for a short weekend trip. Was greeted by very polite and attentive staff upon arrival. As most of the staying guests are Japanese, the service is quite of Japanese style. The room is of decent size, with comfortable bed, large bathroom featuring Loccitane amenities.

The room, bed, bathroom were all fine. Staff - without exception - was helpful. Décor is nice. The location is good. There's probably a bit more choice of shops if you go to your left when walking out of the hotel (including a couple of small department stores about 300 to 400m away). I had a park view room but...
