I stayed at Chateau de Chine on a package tour - I think it was previously called the Chinatrust Hotel.
The hotel makes a big deal about its Mondriane theme, but really this is confined entirely to its exterior appearance - inside it looks like any other hotel. We were also told the hotel has an excellent "green" rating due to energy saving measures.
My room was average sized and comfortable enough, but nothing special.
The hotel is about 30-40 minutes walk from the city centre, and you can take the second half of that walk along the river, which is pleasant. There are also plenty of convenience stores, restaurants and, noticeably, clinics and chemists nearby.
The breakfast buffet was extensive, but had very few vegetarian choices which made it my most disappointing breakfast in Taiwan.
