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...

This hotel wasn't my favorite, but if you're looking for a place in a good location at a reasonable price, this would be a good choice. Pros: mostly related to location.... directly in front of Guting MRT station (exit 8) only 3 stops from Taipei main station, good neighborhood with many worthy sightseeing spots within walking distance (National Chiang Kai-shek...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting Taipei. It's the closest hotel to our family's house, so we had no choice. It's very annoying that you can only have 1 room key, which means you have to coordinate with your roommate if you're on different schedules. The breakfast is the normal congee that you get everywhere in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the great location (just outside the Guting MRT station) and nearby shopping & eateries. The hotel is small and the room average with no view as we asked for a quiet room and got one facing some inner court & other buildings but the room was rather spacious especially the renovated bathroom that...
