This hotel was very competitively priced and centrally located. It was clean and neat and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is right outside the metro station and walking distance to a lot places I needed to be. The breakfast was very "local" but included in the price. Wifi is only at the reception area not in the rooms.

The staff is the main problem. They just can't feel the spaciousness of the room.... insist the more expensive room is more spacious, because the gross area is bigger. When you pay more expensive room, the natural expectation is you will have a better room than the less cost one. But it's not the case. You will a more noisier... More

Great hotel for the price which included breakfast and transfers. Breakfast was filling and if you had a double espresso, was a good start to the day. Very central and near Guting MRT. Very helpful and friendly staff - Ellen, Victoria and Phoebe plus others who gave good advice on locations, fares, hot springs etc. Room was at back so... More

We stayed three nights during our stay in Taipei at this hotel. The location is quite good and convenient to explore the city both by walking and subway. The rooms were okay but could need some make-over. Our first room faced the main road and was quite noisy but the other one towards the back side of the hotel was... More

I stayed in Friends Yo Xing hotel with my family for 2 nites in early December. The location of the hotel is superb, with Guting MRT station (古亭站)right at the doorstep of the hotel entrance. There are a lot of eateries and shops around the hotel. But it is a pity that a hotel with such a good location comes... More

I stayed in this hotel 4 years ago and found it to be adequate. I was disappointed to find 4 years later that absolutely nothing has been done to this hotel and quite honestly it is now not adequate. It is looking very shabby with dirty windows, stained headboards, grubby room carpets, huge old fashioned tvs, broken electrical points, just... More

Stayed here for 4 nights early in August. Dislike only having 1 room key. Buffet breakfast had barely anything to choose from not to mention the dining area was so tiny for so many guest. Wifi does not work in room. Bathroom definitely due for a revamp. On the bright side, great reception staff who were friendly and helpful. Great... More

Stayed here in March 2014. My room was on the 10th floor, looking out through the back of the hotel. The room was clean, adequately furnished, comfortable bed. There was adequate lighting in the room, with good control over brightness. Air conditioning was only limited to cooling, with three settings. When the weather was cold (like in March or during...
