As most of the previous reviewers will have pointed out, I think this hotel's main selling point is the fact that it is a 5 minute walk to Taipei Main Station, the transportation hub of Taipei. I was a little skeptical when my boyfriend booked this place as I had walked past it on previous occasions and had not paid much attention to it because of its older-looking facade, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The hotel staff were all very friendly, and many spoke good English. The room was well set up and comfortable (flat screen TV, sofas, dresser), the bathroom was fine but the room was small. We got a Standard Double and beyond the bed there was around a meter to two of walking space all around. The shower also seemed to be designed with Asian guests in mind because my boyfriend who is 184 cm had to slouch to get under the shower head.
Not much change in the breakfast selection, although there is a decent variety of things to choose from: some breads/butter/jam/yogurt, and much more Chinese style foods like sauteed vegetables, congee and noodles.
It worked out for us though, because we spent so little time in the room.
