The location is probably the best thing about this hotel. The room was comfortable, though it was nothing special, and the breakfast was OK. My only real complaint is that it is overpriced for what they offer (I was even charged 200 TWD for a 1 hour late checkout, which I have never heard of before) -- you can find... More

We bought the package from travel agent, check-in on 25-Dec-2012, check-out on 26-Dec, check-in again on 28-Dec for another 3 nights. When we arrived at... More
