“Nice looking hotel, but lots of room for improvement..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

First the good stuff: great location (convenience stores, MOS Burger, McDonalds etc all nearby), modern-looking rooms, designer decor, taxi drivers had no problems finding the place. Kids loved the jacuzzzi and TV in the bathroom!

NOW for the not-so-good stuff: evidence of cheap/shoddy workmanship all over the room - socket was sparking (told reception, said they changed it, but no improvement), socket was dislodged from wall; housekeeping was tardy in cleaning - dust everywhere (on kettle, near TV cabinet, on the floor), cleaning ladies used our bath towels to wipe the floors, toilet seat - yikes!; one shower was all it took to wet the entire bathroom floor - design was great to look at, but obviously impractical; poor lighting in room and bathroom makes it impossible for the ladies to do any make-up; very little closet space.

Room was for 2 adults and 2 kids. A queen-sized futon mattress was placed on the raised platform, in addition to the king-sized bed.

Reception was somewhat helpful - able to understand English, but reluctant to speak the language.

Breakfast was standard (boring?) and unchanged throughout the 7 days we were there.

Very inflexible with late check out. Each additional hour is chargeable. NT350 per hour after 12pm was reasonable.

If hotel is not well-maintained, another six months is all it will take to look really run-down, which is a real pity.

Would recommend this hotel, but guests should be prepared for all of the above-mentioned
