I'm currently staying at the Hotel, it's great value for money. The staff is very very helpful, I encountered a male and female at their Reception and they went out of their way to assist me and make me feel comfortable. They gave me an adaptor to use for converting my charger, told me where to eat (the local and Thai cuisine) there are lots of food stalls very close by right behind the KFC across the road. There's a McDonalds on the same side of the road, the corner on which the Hotel is located. And of course the Bridge area to walk around after dinner. The male from the reception gave me an iron and board, adjusted the aircon, handed me my Exhibition Badge, and also showed me the Metro personally which is just opposite the Hotel.
The rates are very reasonable, the place is accessible due to the Metro, a single business traveller doesn't need to spend three times the cost to stay in Taipei during the busy periods.
One thing worth mentioning is that budget Hotels generally in Taipei are basically with Chinese names and the staff cannot speak English, the TV channels are all Chinese, but at this Hotel the staff were helpful, spoke and communicated good English, and there were many English TV channels.
The usual and expected - hair dryer, and bath toilet amenities are provided for a couple (ear buds, shower caps, bedroom slippers, shampoo, soap, razor, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair comb, clean towels, mini bar, window with a view with rollable 2 kinds of shades (light and dark), wardrobe, 2 small bottles of complimentary water, 3 small packs of wafers, coffee sachets etc.
Overall an above average experience, the standard rooms are priced between NT$1940 and NT$2400 incl. tax.
