Right next to MTR exit with lots of food and shopping options nearby. Room is a bit old but good value for money due to location. Staff are friendly and helpful too. Great place to stay for solo travellers as the hotel is located along main street which is always crowded hence felt safe.

The location is good with connections to every where from near by metro to taxi and all. Malls and shopping also close by. However the Hotel itself is not really up to the mark. One can handle interiors as far as we have a clean and fresh environment. We checked in to find the room very smelly and complained. They... More

Good location and very close to subway station. Bathroom and bedrooms are old, needs refurbishing. Although rooms are generally clean but not spotless. Staff are also helpful but nothing extraordinary. Nothing really special about this hotel. It's value for money since it's not expensive. Overall, just an average value for money hotel.

After at least 15 years staying in the San Want it definitely needs a brush up. The Internet is dead slow in the evenings when the hotel is full, the gym is a joke for a hotel of that size. The bathrooms are old fashioned, the shower only for dwarfs. Electrical sockets next to the bed for charging phones are... More

This place is in a very convenient location near so many shops and restaurants. Although it is on a busy street, but we had an inside room so it is quite. But the room is small. So we stay out most of the days except come back to sleep during the night. It is also convenient to the MRT (the... More

As other reviewers have highlighted, this hotel's location can't be beat. However, that is its only redeeming value. The hotel and rooms are very dated. The musty smell is overwhelming. The walls are paper-thin, and the small rooms are claustrophobic. For the price, there are definitely other options.

The Hotel has a great location.. department stores around the area, restaurants and even MRT stations. It's pretty convenient for tourist seeking for local adventures! The rooms are clean and the service is good.

Stayed here for 10 nights during our trip in Taiwan. Great location as it's close to many shops and restaurants. Subway station is practically right outside the front door. The staff is great and they were very courteous and helpful. Free water and free working wifi are the other perks. On the other hand, the hotel badly needs an renovation.... More

Very good hotel with decent rooms and suites. We were a family group of 7, in double and quad rooms. Everything was clean and functional, if nothing special or extravagant. Beds were comfy and service was good. You can't beat the location, practically on top of the Zhongxiao Dunhua station, with tons of shopping and eating options within walking distance.... More

The hotel is located in a busy district where shops and restaurants are all around, and a subway MTR station just right outside the hotel. My room is a single room with a comfortable large-size bed, the room is rather small, and it has a window but no outside view, however it's very clean and comfortable. They provide 2 bottles...
