Title says it all, affordable luxury. Hotels in Taipei can be really expensive with really small rooms. But this residence hotel doesn’t follow this trend. With low number of rooms in the property, the hotel able to maintain it’s quality of service and rooms and not asking for a premium rate. There’s even higher category with better room amenities if you wish to upgrade your stay (with Frette sheets). I was surprised with the room (mainly because of what I paid for) as compare to other hotels I’ve stay. This supposed to be only a budget stay, but turns out to be a decent one. The hotel apparently had won numerous of awards in the past. Overall room quality was good - love the shower and the tub! There were some spot which can be improve and probably refurbish like to include electronic curtains etc. Breakfast spread was decent here too - no frills. Would come back again if in the same area.

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.

Dear Rose-Marie, Thank you very much for taking the time to submit a review following your recent stay at San Want Residences Taipei. . Being a partner of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, we always aim to provide highest level of personalized service, the kind of service which will touch your heart and cannot be found anywhere else but here. As you have correctly mentioned in your review, our room rate is pretty reasonable, a lot of customers found our hotel to be good value and recommended other travelers to stay with us. This is exactly the concept we would like to convey and also the fundamental philosophy of this hotel. We put a lot of efforts in staff training to maintain highest level of service, as we believe authentic hospitality can only be achieved by those who understand and care about customers. Facility, location, breakfast, these are certainly important when choosing a hotel and we are glad that our hotel met your expectations in these dimensions, but I must say it is your positive feedback on our service and staff makes us happy and proud! Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us. We hope you had a great time in Taipei and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel someday soon. San Want Residences Taipei

Dear Rami R, Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a generous review of your stay at San Want Residences Taipei. Though our hotel has only 81 rooms, we believe that size doesn’t matter and high quality service doesn’t necessarily mean sky high room rate. Trendy, topnotch facilities would be easily forgotten once a new product appears on the market while warm, thoughtful service touches the heart and might last forever. We are thrilled to read you had a great time here with us and that the exceptional customer service you received from our attentive staff made your stay even more pleasant and enjoyable. Once again, thank you for your review and endorsement. It was a real pleasure having you as our guest. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back very soon. San Want Residences Taipei

The moment we sat into the car that was arranged by hotel, we knew everything was gonna be smooth-sailing. Not only the car was clean & spacious, the driver actually shared with us how to commute to the Arena & the bus stops to go to for the buses to many places. It was so convenient. When we arrived at the front of the hotel, which was located along a ‘happening’ street, the staff quickly ran out & helped with the luggage. He was so courteous & full of smiles. The door was opened for us by another staff. The front desk staff stood attentively to serve us. The lady executive helped me with the check-in procedure...we arrived early, our room wasn’t ready till about 30mins+ later. As we had to rush off in 15minutes time to meet the rest of the team mates who stayed at the event organizer’s venue near the Arena, we needed a room to freshen up. Our designated room was according to what I had initially requested via Expedia...on high floor (12th supposedly was allocated for us) with a view! We got to let it go...she felt sorry that we couldn’t check-in much earlier to our desired room & asked again if 7th floor was fine. We just decided so, took the card keys & moved off. She walked us to the lift, showed us the waiting area where snacks & beverage was free for guests at anytime, then brought us up to our room. As we had not much time left, we told her she wasn’t required to introduce the room amenities to us which she supposed to...she obliged. I felt I was a bit abrupt, sorry about this. The room was park-facing. The corridor was quiet. Our room was big, very comfortable & quiet, amenities were complete, big wardrobe, lots of drawer space, lights control panel at bedside. A fruit basket & some biscuits welcomed us. Even the flatscreen TV had our names on it when we switched it on. Bathroom was excellent! There was a bricked, squarish soak tub for 1-2 pax (skinny folks) to sit & salt-soak in there, a standing shower (shower tap & rain shower), an automated Japanese toilet seat/warmer/auto cover up & down & auto flush etc etc. Very advanced! All using a touch panel! Good quality & elegant toiletries...which they do sell at lobby area. Twin-beds were of good size, very comfortable, though my son did feedback that the linen sheets was a bit too ‘washed & rough’. The lamp shades at our beds were dusty. The rest were perfectly all right. Just small issues. Breakfast was simple, very Japanese, very healthy salads & porridge. All service staff in San Want spoke fluent Japanese. Most patrons were Japanese. Everyone was polite & had full of greetings. Ambience of hotel was elegant, antiques everywhere, at the right place - be it portraits or figurines or art pieces, very apt for everywhere. No lacking of taxis, front desk used headsets to alert concierge (they took turns to man the doors)...that taxis were needed. Within seconds, they appeared. It was really easy to take a taxi at the entrance, at times, taxis were already queuing outside. There were so many eateries along the streets, left of San Want Residences has more...McDonald’s, Korean food, Japanese Ramen (in which we patronized), Western food, Chinese noodles. There are many cosmetic shops, fashion wear as well as tea & beauty products. On the right there was a noodle place which opened later, we didn’t try. To the Arena, it took less than 10mins without traffic jams. Returning, it could be a bit longer as a U-turn was required at the traffic junction. The gym was located at basement level. Small room with sufficient equipment. A wall-mounted TV could be switched on when you do treadmill. Outside the gym, there was a well-decorated seating area, for meetings I supposed. We travelled by taxis to the famous Chia Te Bakery (same stretch as the Arena) to buy some biscuits. Also to Sogo at Fuxing to eat at the foodcourt. Very convenient indeed. Taxi drivers we met were very polite. A day before we checked out, the staff checked with us if we would like to arrange for airport pick up. Very efficient. They even granted us a late checkout as our flight departure was in the late afternoon. It was a very pleasant stay for us. Definitely wouldn’t mind at all to stay at San Want if we visit Taipei again. I truly recommend it for business or family travelers.

Dear TKoh, Thank you very much for staying with us recently and for taking the time to write such a lovely review. San Want Residences is a boutique hotel with only 81 rooms, our occupancy rate is always very high throughout the year, so even though we try everything possible to assist guests who arrive on early flights, the check-out time is 12:00 pm and our housekeepers do need time to make up the rooms. Just like you had correctly mentioned in your review, we pre-assigned a room on the 12th floor for you, but unfortunately the room was not ready when you arrived. Our ceiling height is higher than the standard, so actually rooms on the 7th floor are quite nice and just as comfortable as the rooms on the higher floors. We are delighted to read that you had an overall positive experience here with us, but we do apologize for the cleanliness issue you and your son encountered. Your comment has been shared with the entire Housekeeping team, please rest assured that we will take the appropriate measures to address this issue and prevent future occurrence. Thank you again for sharing your experience. We hope to have another opportunity to serve you someday soon. San Want Residences Taipei

My family and I had a wonderful two-night (26-28/7/19) stay at San Want Residences. This hotel is full of charm - both the building and the people alike. We loved the room and the bathroom with deep sunken japanese bathub. Very clean and the decor in keeping with the hotel. There are eateries and convenience stores down the street. There is automated mechanical carpark within the hotel coumpound too. The hotel does not provide accommodation to children under the age of 12 or tour group. The staffs are extremely attentive and helpful. Special thanks to Nelly, Elie, Vicky, and Toshi in assisting me to arrange a birthday surprise cake for my husband on his birthday. They contacted me promptly after i write in the request via email. Everything went perfectly! We also would like to express our gratitude to all the staffs that have attended to us during our stay. This is one of the best hotel ever! We would definitely return to San Want Residences if we were to visit Taipei again! Jill Cheong

Dear Jill, Thank you very much for your generous review following your recent stay at San Want Residences Taipei. We are truly grateful that you chose to stay with us on such a special occasion - your husband’s birthday, and we feel honored that we were able to make this special day even more memorable. Though our staff members are relatively young and might not be perfectly refined in many ways, they are all very enthusiastic and always try to help customers in any way they can. Your positive feedback had been shared with the whole team and made them very happy and proud! Thank you also highlighting our location and the thoughtfully designed guest rooms. The Japanese style bathroom you mentioned in your review is actually one of our most popular room facilities. It features one separate shower booth and one sunken bathtub, which are specially designed for utmost comfort and relaxation. We also intentionally adjusted the water pressure of the rainfall shower / movable shower head to a higher level to give it a spa-like feeling. Though we do not have sauna or spa in the hotel, we hope this will add some extra comfort to the guest rooms and customers can enjoy the atmosphere of hot spring in their own rooms. Thank you once again for staying with us and for your kind words. On behalf of the whole team, we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel, not only on your husband’s next birthday, but also on many different occasions in the future!
