I stayed at this hotel a couple of nights ago. The guidebook I had recommended it fairly highly. I might have had doubts when I walked in the lobby...it looked like someone's rec room undergoing renovations. Still, the front desk clerk was efficient, spoke some English & check in didn't take more than 2 minutes. I ordered the most basic room and despite its size, it didn't come cheap. 1400 NT, whereas the same room in a nondescript locale in a nondescript Taiwanese city might go for half that price. A couple could spend the night there but they'd be bumping into one another.The room was clean, with basic AC and TV and a shower/bathtub. Basic toiletries are provided. Beefy barbarians beware: the bathtub is made for Taiwanese frames, not Western ones.You could get stuck in the tub. How do I know? Don't ask....
The breakfast, contrary to what my guidebook told me, is nothing to rave about. Instant coffee, paper plates! No Western foods and although it's billed as open from 7-10, if you arrive after 8, the pickings are slim.
Location, location, location. That's the real reason to spend extra coin & stay here. If you check in in the early pm, you can quickly freshen up and knock off 4 of the major sights by suppertime. The next day (assuming you're travelling light with a knapsack), you can check out & knock off the rest of the major sights by suppertime.
If location is your prime consideration, spend a night here.
