This hotel is 10 minutes walk to the subway is very centralized. It provides free breakfast and free rides to some parts of the city. My room (triple room) was very big and comfortable. I will rate this a 3.5 stars hotel. The price was reasonable for Christmas travelling.

Front desk staff was nice and efficient. Lobby is very nice. The room was clean, just the right size. Nice TV, fridge, and they left complimentary water for us each day. Breakfast was really good in the mornings. Down the street from Shuangcheng NM, so you can grab a bite at any time of day if you're arriving to or... More

My brother and I were in Taipei for one night, and we found the hotel clean and quite comfortable. The place's probably been renovated recently because the utilities are somewhat new unlike most hotels of this price range in Taipei. The free breakfast was ok, but don't expect too much out of it. However, some of the other guests were... More

The location is probably the best thing about this hotel. The room was comfortable, though it was nothing special, and the breakfast was OK. My only real complaint is that it is overpriced for what they offer (I was even charged 200 TWD for a 1 hour late checkout, which I have never heard of before) -- you can find... More

The location is good, can earn a 3 star. But, the rest; i.e. Customer Service, room, breakfast, wifi, etc, is way below 2 star! We were in a group of 14 persons, in-total 5 rooms. We bought the package from travel agent, check-in on 25-Dec-2012, check-out on 26-Dec, check-in again on 28-Dec for another 3 nights. When we arrived at... More
