I stayed at this hotel while at a conference at the university. It is ideally situated for the university being only a 5 minute walk away. It is also convenient for the MRT train system - the nearest station is 10 minutes walk which gives access to all of Taipei. The hotel is clean and efficiently run. All the staff I spoke to could speak excellent English and they were all very friendly and welcoming. I had a single room which was reasonable size - not large but plenty of room around the bed, with flat screen tv with a couple of channels in English, clean and good sized bathroom. The a/c was essential since the temperatures was around 40 degrees in July but the hotel was cool and comfortable.
A buffet breakfast in the restaurant was included each morning. There was a good variety of food available, hot tea and coffee, fruit juices etc. Western foods (toast, cornflakes etc) and more traditional Taiwanese dishes.
The hotel has a pool with jacuzzi and a gym. I used the pool but not the gym. It's not the most attractive pool area - more functional than somewhere to sit around. It was very quiet with only a few other guests using it in the evening when I was there.
The single room was exceptional value for money at around £30 per night.
