This hotel only has limited rooms as it is only one level. The lift is shared by 4 hotels in the same building. So, you will find going up inconvenient when other people tries to go to their lodging at different levels. The room may be comfortable but there is not enough space for luggage as you try to unpack... More

Location: this hotel is within 5 mins walking of the ShuanLiang station on the red line. To get to hotel use exit 1. To get from Taipei airport to hotel take the kuokuang bus no. 1819 to the ambassador hotel and walk. The walk from the amabassador hotel to shin shih is about 5-10mins. It's a good location, about 20mins... More

I have stayed at this hotel on prior visits and it is the hotel that I stay at when visiting Taipei. It's one that's more known to the locals. The service is awesome. They do serve an eastern/western breakfast, eggs and toast with a meat. The traditional fare, I'm not familiar with but it looks good. It's a place I... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and was pleasantly surprised. Location - 2 min walk to the closest metro station. It was across from a hospital and our room actually faced the hospital, so on the first night we did hear a siren go off in the middle of the night, but the rest of the time noise wasn't an... More

My visit to Taipei was over the new year countdown period NYE 2015 and most hotels were fully booked at its peak inflated rates. I went ahead with Shin Shih Hotel based on several positive reviews on tripadvisor and at a surprisingly cheap rate. The booking also included breakfast for 2. At first I was still doubtful about the service... More

Good location as 3~5 mins walk from ShuangLian MRT and there are plenty of places to eat. For night owls, 寧夏觀光夜市 offers supper which is 10 minutes walk away. Lobby is located behind the dining area. Request for early check in is highly unlikely even if request was made weeks before. There is only 1 lift serving the entire building... More

Room is of reasonable size and I stayed in a twin room, but the hotel is quite outdated. Great location as it is near to Shuanglian station and many places to eat out. Staff are polite. Breakfast so-so, I ate out the second day. With the price I paid for this hotel, I am sure I can get similar places... More

For the price I paid, I must say this is a pretty good deal in Taipei City. The location is great, just 3 minutes' walk from Shuanglian MRT, or if you are up for it, you can even walk to Taipei Main Station, about 30mins (it is linked by an underground mall). There are plenty of local eateries in the... More

The overall room service is acceptable except there are other guest smoking. This causes my room to be filled with smoke in the day and in middle of the night. Smoke lingers until next morning. If you are unlucky to have a smoking neighbor, you will get 2nd hand smoke all the time in the room.
