It was one of the worst hotel experience of my life. The rooms were so dark and there was NO WINDOW !! We booked 3 rooms (2 people per room) and all of them stinked (humidity). The lights did not work normally and when I got someone to fix it I discovered a mess of wire just next to the... More

Room is of reasonable size and I stayed in a twin room, but the hotel is quite outdated. Great location as it is near to Shuanglian station and many places to eat out. Staff are polite. Breakfast so-so, I ate out the second day. With the price I paid for this hotel, I am sure I can get similar places... More

For the price I paid, I must say this is a pretty good deal in Taipei City. The location is great, just 3 minutes' walk from Shuanglian MRT, or if you are up for it, you can even walk to Taipei Main Station, about 30mins (it is linked by an underground mall). There are plenty of local eateries in the... More

The overall room service is acceptable except there are other guest smoking. This causes my room to be filled with smoke in the day and in middle of the night. Smoke lingers until next morning. If you are unlucky to have a smoking neighbor, you will get 2nd hand smoke all the time in the room.

Hi, I have been there for one week and I really appreciate my stay. For many reason. First, the location is perfect. You are at 3 minutes of Shuanglian station. Shuanglian is only at two stations away of the main station one. Second, the staff are more than kind and are doing more than what they are suppose to do.... More

I have stayed twice at this hotel, 2011 and 2012, both times in December. And i have to say, it's a nice little hotel which is definitely worth every cent that you pay. Good location: - 5 minutes walk from Shuang Lian MRT station, which is only 2 stops from Taipei main station. - Good food can be found everywhere... More

Hotel overall is good. Convenient to travel around Taipei because it is very close to MRT station (5 mins walking distance). You can even take a public bus directly to Taoyuan Airport. But the room size is small, hardly enough space for me to put 2 luggages.

I stayed in this hotel from 19th to 24th December and I must say I'm left with pleasant memories, with minimal hiccups here and there. Location:- The hotel is conveniently located about 2 mins away from Shuanglian MRT, which is 2 stops away from Taipei Main Station. Remember to get out via Exit 1 so that you won't have to... More

The hotel is located near to Shuang Lian Station. There are eateries, Watsons, Cosmed and market near the area. Room and bathroom is big and comfortable. One thing bad is their power supply. the kettle refuse to work and we took one whole day to charge a phone (usually it takes only 2 hours or so).
