I like this hotel the people were very nice. I did not like the breakfast. it seemed a bit far from MRT which is too bad since the MRT is such a great way to get around . The room looked at the park it was ok. I did not like breakfast. The too complicated Toilet is silly. the square step down bath , not great.

Dear Gene G, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay at San Want Residences Taipei. The step down bath and the automated toilet you mentioned in your review, are actually two of our most popular room facilities. Automated toilet is almost a must-have for people in Japan and some neighboring Asian countries. As to the square-shaped sunken bathtub, usually you can only find this kind of tubs at some luxurious resort hotels in Poitou and ChiaoHsi. It might look a little bit unique at the first glance but it is really relaxing, especially after a long day doing business or sightseeing. Speaking of our location, I must admit that it is indeed not as perfect as those situated right next to the MRT stations. But look on the bright side, a 7-8 minute walking distance from the stations guarantees a relatively tranquil environment and there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel where you can get almost anything you need. We are delighted to read that you found our staff very nice and we do hope our sincere service will compensate for the location issue which we really have no way to improve. Thank you once again for staying with us. We look forward to welcoming you back someday soon. San Want Residences Taipei

The first thing to say about this hotel has to be the level of service. All of the staff were well versed in their jobs, competent, and pleasant. Almost everyone spoke English to some degree, and were always happy to accommodate. There is a nice park directly across the street, and countless restaurants in the area. It is also close close to both the expressway, and to the subway. The rooms were well appointed, and perfectly clean. Our only complaint (slight as it is) was the mattress was a little firm for our liking, but that really is more of a personal taste.

Dear keifco, Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us recently and for taking the time to share your experience. While we are pleased to read that you enjoyed the superb location of our hotel and the warm service from our team, we regret that the mattress did not meet your expectations and we do apologize for this imperfection. Though we are not planning to change mattresses any time soon, as guest satisfaction is our top priority, we will be more than happy to add an extra soft duvet under the mattress pad to adjust the firmness of the mattress for you. Our front desk is staffed 24 hours a day with staff members speak fluent Japanese and English (by the way, we also have a staff who speaks Spanish!). They are all very enthusiastic and always willing to help in any way they can. If there is anything we can do to make your next stay more pleasant and comfortable, please do let us know. It was our pleasure to have you as our guest and we would be delighted to welcome you back to the hotel, hopefully in the not too distant future! San Want Residences Taipei

This hotel provides top class service and the room has a Jap onsen style bath facility. Conveniently located near the MRT station and also lots of eatery nearby. The breakfast spread is also wonderful and staff are very helpful attending to your every need.

Dear Eric, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your stay at San Want Residences Taipei. We are glad that you enjoyed so many aspects of our hotel, and we are extremely grateful for your compliments regarding our service and staff. Thank you also for mentioning our Japanese style bath facility. The surely non-conventional bath facility, especially the bath tub, allows our guests to enjoy the atmosphere and pleasure of bathing in hot spring while staying at a hotel so conveniently close to the city center. It is always one of our most popular room facilities and we are so happy that you like it! Thank you again for your kind words and recommendation. We believe that good service comes from true hospitality, and it does not necessarily come with a big price tag. We hope that our sincere, friendly service will entice you to stay with us again next time you visit Taipei. We wish you all the best and very much look forward to welcoming you back someday soon.

Rather quaint hotel, with an older style of interior decor. The rooms themselves are comfortable and well fitted out, with modern appliances. Request for a view towards the nearby park, as the rear view towards the back road isn’t very nice. The restaurant offers simple but tasty dishes for lunch and dinner. The breakfast offering could be improved, though.

Dear Mathieu M, Thank you very much for reviewing your recent stay at San Want Residences Taipei. Taipei is a densely populated city, a boutique hotel situated right in front of a large scale park with moderate sized rooms, is destined to have rooms on the opposite side of the park. While our park view rooms are indeed very popular, for business travelers or guests who do not stay in their rooms for a long period of time, our studio rooms are just fine and can also be sold out quickly. Our hotel aims to provide a stress-free, cozy environment, so instead of anything shiny or bling, we use warm colors like muted gold, beige, brown to decorate guest rooms. To ensure utmost comfort, we put a lot of effort into choosing high-quality amenities and constantly invest in upgrading room facilities. However, I have to admit that, Neoclassicism, the decorating style we chose for the hotel, is indeed not created in the 21st century. Thank you also for bringing the breakfast issue to our attention. We take guest comments seriously as it is one of the best tools we get to identify areas we need to improve. We do hope you can share some more opinions with us so that we can review our existing breakfast menu and make some improvement right away. Thank you again for staying with us. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back someday soon. San Want Residences Taipei

This is a great little hotel! It is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, but not overly expensive to stay here. The welcome at the kerbside and at the reception desk is professional, efficient, and genuinely warm. Good English is spoken (for those of us not fluent in any Asian languages!). The location is good; it's a short walk to the local subway system, and the hotel is close to a variety of eating places. The room we stayed in was a Parkview Room. There is a reasonable amount of space and the room overlooked the small park on the other side of the street giving open views of the city. The bed was lovely and comfortable, housekeeping was excellent, and the shower was great. The room highlight though must be the Japanese-style sunken tub which is perfect for relaxing in after a busy day out and about. And last, but not least, the generous breakfast offerings (Oriental & Western) will set you up perfectly for the new day.
