It's position is good, close to the metro. People is very professional, little cold maybe. Rooms are clean but old, pretty old. Rooms, free upgraded from economic, were big and comfortable. I don't know about breakfast as it was not included.

We were booked at this hotel by our company which was just opposite this hotel. We received great service at the hotel. Was also pleasantly surprised to find out that our room was huge, actually equivalent to a suite size. Even with a big L shaped sofa there was still plenty of room left. Toilet was big too! Definitely appreciated... More

Walking distance to Zhongxiao Fuxing station, Sun Yat Sen Memorial and Taipei 101/Xinyi district if you are willing to walk more. My last visit was 6-7 years back... More

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The building is very old, but they did a very good job renovating it. Still the room we stayed in had... More

Location was perfect, right outside the subway station and close to shops/restaurants. Service was friendly and efficient. Rooms were clean, but the walls were thin and could clearly hear the TV/conversations/shower next door...

First impression was the incredible service we received on par with a 5 star hotel. The building is old and the place needs a face lift, especially the rooms. But the room was really large (pretty much a suite with a living room and a bedroom) and clean for the most part. We got a non smoking room but the... More

The staff here are so friendly and helpful! They couldn't do enough for us. They helped us book a driver for a day to take us to Juifen and helped us figure out how to get to our next hotel.The doormen were so nice. Rooms are clean and its in a good location. Can't recommend this place enough!
