The good: Great location, close to MRT station, underground shopping center, SOGO department stores within walking distance. There are just shops everywhere close by. Little ally ways of shops as well. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The bell boys (men) opened car doors, doors, take your luggage, greet and farewell all that comes and goes. One even...

December 2015: Very conveniently located in downtown shopping Taipei. Close to 2 MRT stations. Rates are acceptable given the position of the hotel. Well appointed with complimentary fruit and water on arrival. Reception is welcoming and friendly. Most people are either able to speak/understand english or at least courteously understand what guests would like. Surrounded by Taipei's street food and... More

Stayed in this hotel for the 3rd time in 5 years. Service staff are still good but the rooms are showing signs of age. Got a quadruple room which is spacious but the pillows are too soft. Wifi is also not stable. Location just beside the Metro is the big draw.

Stayed here two nights. Excellent Chinese Restaurant and bakery. Ver convenient location for shopping , sights and eateries. Lots of 24hrs restaurants in the neighbourhood. Breakfast was adequate and straight forward. Would have given a higher rating if the room didn't have a muskty smell and the staff were more cheerful.

I was in a conference at Taipei International Convention Centre for 4 days and stayed at San Want Hotel for 4 nights in November 2014. First and foremost in all things good is its location which is very central to everything. MRT station is just steps outside and the area is surrounded by shops, restuarants, department stores (including SOGO). Also... More

Have stayed here over 10 times in the past years...simply because of it's location and at those times fairly reasonable prices. The rooms are outdated to say the least, but from the standard rooms to the suites that have a lounge area, the decor remains simple, uncluttered and fairly clean with a hint of a musky smell lingering. The location... More

Here for a 4 day meeting so limited exposure to all the facilities. Hotels in Asia tend to be refurbished on a very regular basis and facilities generally put US and European to shame. I felt this hotel was way past the point where it needed to be refurbished. Room a bit run down and dull, power points not in... More

Found this hotel's location very useful. Rooms clean and everything worked inside. Staff very friendly and provided help whenever asked. Useful hotel taxi service to and from the airport. Great room rate. Overall I would use this place again.

Their rooms are very basic, and small. TV is the box-type, although channel options are good. Staff are helpful, and very friendly. English has never been a problem. Price-wise, very reasonable. Their breakfast selection is great: fresh fruit, congee, pastries, eggs. Coffee and tea acceptable. Location can't be beat: steps from the MRT blue line, bus lines to Taipei Main... More

The rooms are generous in size however a little aged. The staff were very friendly and professional. I would have liked to see a better hairdryer in the room, a personal hate is the small hairdryer attached to the wall.
