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

Due to the large amount of trading exhibitions in Taipei in Nov, and the First Hotel is the only one left within our budget. So we book the double room for 4 nights. Transportion: you can take the freego bus from the Taoyuan International Airport and drop off right outside the hotel. Loaction: 5mins walk from the Songjiang Nanjing station,... More

A friend finally recommended this hotel and I made the reservation with his help (translating... More

After reading mixed review about this hotel, I decided to try staying here to experience it for myself. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the low to medium budget traveller. We paid $85 US/night, and in my opinion it is well worth the money. Rooms are adequate, not super high end but very comfortable. Lots of space to put... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night. To my surprise I was upgraded to a very spacious suit on 9th floor with beautiful Chinese silk embroidery pieces on the walls. The rooms are very comfortable and bathroom has separate shower and bathtub. The location is great and this is a very nice Japanese style restaurant downstairs. The hotel accommodate... More

Room with double bed was relatively small and equiped with only basic stuff. Bathroom is small (similar to the size of small bathrooms in Japan). Breakfast is very much basic. Room with two twin beds was bigger and also equped in the same level. Main advantage is the location.

the location is good, close to MRT and taipei main station but for the same value, you can get definitely better. room was dirty: dust, mosquito "juice" on wall, bed itching, carpet dirty. you should look for another location

The decoration in the hotel lobby is acceptable. However, the guest room is old that make me don't want to stay at the room. Don't expect too much on the hotel buffet breakfast,both the quality and variety are just okay. The location is quite good, which is ten minutes walk from the subway station.
