Good location with 5 mins walk to the nearest mrt station, Zhongshan station (and later found out that this station is actually having a underground shopping street connecting to Taipei Station). 20mins walk to Ningxia night market where I found the most delicious oyster omelette and papaya milkshake. 3-4 mrt stops to another famous Shinlin night market. Along tianjin street where the hotel is located, plenty of eateries along it, you can also find another famous Unagi (Japanese eel rice) restaurant, Hiyen Ya (肥前屋) just around the corner of Tianjin street.
Staffs ate great and friendly.
Found that the bathroom (I stayed in Elite Double room) is small and the bathtub is high which found a little dangerous to climb over it for shower, flood is slippery too (not anti-slippery tiles being used).
