All in all the hotel offered great value for the amount we paid. Most of the clientele seemed to be Japanese. I especially loved the Japanese style bathtub in our suite room, and the complimentary fruit peeling and... More

Absolutely close to the main downtown area and great location for good food. Shopping is easy with department stores and duty free. More than that, good park and cafe really gives you a good feeling about Taipei. Try the noodle store in the closer street of the residence.

Don't hesitate to book Sant Want Residences! The rooms are modern large luxury suites at reasonable prices. Good wi-fi, water, and fruit free. Wonderful staff were very helpful. Short walk from Linsen. (note there's also another San Want hotel in a different part of town)

The hotel was organised to meet the needs of guests. We'd chosen it as a haven in case of really bad weather. It proved to be a great hub, near to the subway and ideal base for sightseeing using public transport. Guests are pampered.

good location right on main shopping area , not far away from subway. the hotel is under good management. the staff are polit and helpful. Breakfast is enough choice from Chinese/Japaness/western food. reading room and art collection dispalyed in the hotel makes the hotel luxary. totally worthy money.
