Entrance hall very busy with large groups check in but with helpfull staff, well versed in english language.

Length of stay: 6 nights (for training trip at Taipei Veterans General Hospital). Arrival: We arrived at around 12MN. Staff was not that good in english. Had to resort to a bit sign language when we checked-in. Room: Rooms are old and a bit musty, need some renovation. A lot of the rooms do not have a window. Although We... More

Before booking, I am a bit hesitated since it's an old hotel and afraid some malfunctions. Since we will stay for a night and want to have easy access location, we decide to stay this place. The room is spacious since it's designed for the disable person. It has the living room and bed room separately. The bed is not... More

This is one of the old hotels in Taipei but located at a very central location to access to most areas. Staff have been working there so long that they established an old style service culture. Breakfast was not limited variety and also quantity. If you are late for breakfast, you would have very limited food left for your choice.

Kind of... bland/ plain. Complimentary breakfast gets a thumbs up but it is quite plain as well. It's located right across from a bus station as well. Apart from that... everything is just... alright. Also, most of the staff know English and are very friendly.

I stayed at this hotel with my family (mom and sister) for a couple nights. It was a package trip, and we upgraded the hotel level, so I was expecting a better service and facility. The breakfast was horrible - we couldn't eat most of the things. I think most guests were Chinese coming with a bunch of people in... More

This hotel was included in the price of our tour. Our first choice of hotel was full and so we were asked to pay an extra fee for this "upgraded" hotel. Upon arrival we found a dated hotel but with pleasant staff. The room turned out to be very old and didn't even have a window - although there were... More

Taipei is one of the best cities in the world. It exceeds the standard on food, access, price, things to do, things to see, friendliness by far. But be fair, the state of the median hotel in Taipei is sorely lacking from an international standard. In most cities, you'll find that an average 3-star hotel would be similar to a... More
