“Modern hotel. Ok location but value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Only spent one night here but the hotel was very modern and clean and offered the usual amenities for such a hotel. The staff were pleasant and offered help.

The rooms were delightful with an amazing bathroom- however a noisy generator or fan could be heard at night.

Breakfast was more suited to the Chinese guest but fruit and pastries were available if you looked hard enough.

The location was ok- close to high speed rail station and you can walk to lotus pond and the nearest harrods shopping mall but little else in the area geared for western tourists.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I stayed one night in order to present a paper at a conference, and found the hotel to be friendly, stylish and generally well-equipped.

The room decor is particularly swish, with transparent glass partitions separating the bathroom and the bedroom - fine if you don't mind watching a companion's ablutions In suppose. (I was on my own so this was neither here nor there.)

The rooms have broadband but only if you ask a technician to bring a cable. This is not a problem but one needs to know there is no WiFi.

The location is good.

I stayed in the hotel for four days. The hotel had nice amenities. I was impressed with the gym. they had a lots of equipment even a rowing machine. The rooms were of decent size and it was decorated nicely. The Bakery in the lobby was convenient. As a whole the hotel is posh and nicely designed.

I had a problem with the cleanliness of this hotel. On the surface it looks very polished and clean but I was disgusted by the bug infestation. On the first night we had to change our room becuase we came back to a room full of cockroaches. The next morning we saw little cockroaches crawling around the buffet. I was truly disgusted by it.

The rooms were also very humid. When I crawled into my bed the comforters and sheets were damp. It was not a good feeling.

The hotel also does not have wifi connection. There is a cable for Internet and unfortunately it is very short...

Overall I was not too impressed with this hotel. It is aethestically pleasing to the eye but my comfort was compromised.

I have spent nearly a week in this hotel for a business trip. I think the best of this hotel is the high quality cost ratio.
The hotel is clean well maintained despite is not a new structure.
People at the front desk, but also room attendants are very friendly and careful to solve any problemor address questions or needs.
I did not have any complaint. Breakfast is quite well mixed between western and taiwanese style, and very differentiated. Swimming pool is continuously supervised and quite large enough to swim decently. Gym is enough to do more than basic training. All in all I was completely satisfied.

I stayed there one night on a sightseeing tour from Taipei. This place is very nice : a great, clean lobby, efficient check in, spacious rooms, everything very clean and modern, fast free internet, separate shower and bath and fantastic breakfast. This place is just great ! Also the location : walking distance from some nice food court street and from the main shopping street. Strongly recommended !

Only negative point : the minibar was very noisy and when it was switching on and off, it was making a big noise. Not good.

Otherwise : just perfect.
