Was looking forward to stay in this hotel after reading many positive reviews. We stayed for three nights in late March. Situated in the centre of Ximending in Taipei, lots of shopping was fun. No need to go to a night food market since a lot food stalls appear when night falls and all kinds of varieties to chose from fastfood shops to steaks or Japanese food in several streets. However, I was initially a bit disappointed on seeing the room being a bit small in size, even though it was an extra large quad. I was pleased that it however could accommodate my whole family of four in the same room, which was convenient for taking care of our two kids. The sofa bed and another rollaway bed were adequately large and comfortable. The pillow was a bit too flat. The separate restroom and shower was a good idea. On the whole the room was orderly and clean, but the wash basin was already rusty in the corners even though this hotel was only been in service for just one year. Could use more than two chairs in the room though. All the staff were nice and helpful at the concierge. They were immediately aware of what I was talking about without having to explain in details, smart and prompt action was offered to solve the problems. They were fluent in English, a wonderful bonus since my Putonghua was barely understandable. They offered helpful advise considering transportation to sightseeing points, well prepared with written warm reminders in tiny pieces of paper. The breakfast was adequate in variety, healthy and high quality food. I like the bean sprouts which was fresh and juicy and the eggs made on spot. Surprising my son liked the mixed vegetable juice. On the whole the place was decorated artistically and bookish which was quite refreshing.
Each floor has a different decor, the sixth floor was decorated with drawings of musical instruments...
