Before booking, I am a bit hesitated since it's an old hotel and afraid some malfunctions. Since we will stay for a night and want to have easy access location, we decide to stay this place. The room is spacious since it's designed for the disable person. It has the living room and bed room separately. The bed is not... More

This is one of the old hotels in Taipei but located at a very central location to access to most areas. Staff have been working there so long that they established an old style service culture. Breakfast was not limited variety and also quantity. If you are late for breakfast, you would have very limited food left for your choice.

Kind of... bland/ plain. Complimentary breakfast gets a thumbs up but it is quite plain as well. It's located right across from a bus station as well. Apart from that... everything is just... alright. Also, most of the staff know English and are very friendly.

I stayed at this hotel with my family (mom and sister) for a couple nights. It was a package trip, and we upgraded the hotel level, so I was expecting a better service and facility. The breakfast was horrible - we couldn't eat most of the things. I think most guests were Chinese coming with a bunch of people in... More

This hotel was included in the price of our tour. Our first choice of hotel was full and so we were asked to pay an extra fee for this "upgraded" hotel. Upon arrival we found a dated hotel but with pleasant staff. The room turned out to be very old and didn't even have a window - although there were... More

Taipei is one of the best cities in the world. It exceeds the standard on food, access, price, things to do, things to see, friendliness by far. But be fair, the state of the median hotel in Taipei is sorely lacking from an international standard. In most cities, you'll find that an average 3-star hotel would be similar to a... More

As we were out all day until late it was fine as a base and to sleep in. On our return from Sun Moon Lake we were give a refurbished room... More

This time, as numerous other times, I had a very good time while staying at the First Hotel in Taipei. The First Hotel and its staff, in all these years in general but in this year [October 2014] in particular, have always were extremely helpful and friendly.

For a first trip to Taipei, this hotel in my eyes, is just OK. It is definitely does not fit my description of a fancy hotel, but for a place to stay for evenings, it suits the purpose. There are a couple of fast food places and shops within walking distance (5 to 15 minutes walk) and there is a... More
