Previously when I'm on business trip to taipei, I will stay at San Want Hotel. In Singapore, they have the famous cracker "Wan Wan", which is the same owner as this hotel. Came to know from colleague that this is a very big organisation in Taiwan and therefore I'm not surprise their hotel are of high standard. Furthermore, this is... More

I've stayed here several years ago and always enjoyed it. MRT is right underneath the hotel. Plenty of shopping and restaurants right outside. Stayed here again for 3 days in December, and the hotel definitely is showing its age. Rooms are ancient. Bathroom is dark and dated. The wall has plenty of bumps and scratches. I don't know if the... More

It was amazing that they had such great service as well as luxurious atmosphere. Not only beautiful but also very convenient location for everyone. Great for business but expected to be even better for a family stay. Will definitely go back next time.

The hotel is well located to shopping centres, restaurants, boutique stores and public transport. Rooms are well appointed however the bathroom is a little small with a classic old school shower curtain. The buffet breakfast is ok. But the location is what makes this place.

The room was cold, small and dated; however, I was provided with a portable heater and extra blankets. Although the room is a bit dated, the ambiance is still welcoming and the staff more than make up for it with their professionalism. I would certainly stay here again because of the location and the wonderful staff.

This was my second time staying in San Want hotel. It's located on one of the main streets in Taipei and it's within a few steps to the subway station with lots of shops in the area. If you take the shuttle bus from Taoyuan international airport you'll be stopping only one metro station away. The rooms I stayed in... More

We've heard of micro houses in the USA, but a micro bathroom greats visitors at the San Want Hotel. We booked the San Want Hotel to be relatively close to the World Trade Center in Taipei without paying too much for a hotel room. Little did we know that the bathroom would be so small...limited vanity space and, if you... More

I chose San Want Hotel because of its location (next to MRT ) and quad rooms to accommodate my family entourage of 4 adults and 4 young kids. Despite negative reviews about it being dated and not so clean, I decided to book 2 quad rooms to try it out. Actually the rooms turned out to be fine and they... More

Undoubtedly one of the best 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Not only is the location very convenient, with the MRT just right outside, shopping malls were also within walking distance and the hotel staffs were really friendly. (FYI, I stayed there in December 2011, but I wasn't able to find 2011 under "When did you travel?")

Location good, room a little bit small for superior but big for the deluxe room. It is near a train station, which is good. There are a lot of shopping around the hotel. The bed is comfortable but view is not so good.
