This hotel has a lot going for it: quiet location set back from the main street; attentive and pleasant staff; large rooms (the bathroom was bigger then some Asian hotel rooms I've stayed in!); reasonable range at breakfast (no cereal though); free WiFi and also computers; and free laundry. WiFi signal not good though. Two negatives for me: the 'no smoking' signs are ignored by some guests and the front desk staff don't take action (although I was offered a room change when smoking in the room opposite made my room stink); and the beds are short. Now I'm tallish (1.93m) even by western standards, but a standard bed is usually adequate. Apparently the Taiwan standard bed length is 1.9m, so if you're over about 1.75m you're in trouble!! I haven't struck this issue everywhere but here it was really noticeable. If you're short the beds are lovely although the pillows are horrible lumps of foam rubber.
Only a few minutes from MRT. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Jacuzzi in the bathroom a bonus.
