Hi, I used HotelClub.com to book this room because of the communication issue. It didn't help. The mis communication occurred throughout the experience. I called twice telling them the room I wanted after booking it and confirmed. It didn't help because they said yes to everything. We arrived and had to look at 3 different rooms. Then their credit card service was down. I used a Taiwan bank Visa card. Then they had to run the card again at checkout. Then two more phone calls to explain everything again. They know just enough English to make it appear like they speak English but not work out the problems. They have a credit card problem.

good location and large room
unprofessional and unfriendly staff, especially the "incredible" dirty air conditioner kept on falling dust and black cotton fiber so that we had to close it when we stayed in a no window room...too horrible

Very spacious rooms, soundproofed rooms and well kept. The lobby was minimal. Was in TPE for a 13hr overnight layover and even with an airport bus/taxi plus the hotel room charge, it's far cheaper than the hotels in the airport vicinity.

At check-in (around 2100h), all I wanted was dinner and a clean shower. Walked to TPE101 hoping there's some options for dinner; however, everything closed early. The cabbie told me there were tons of food options in the alleyways behind hotel. They were right.

OBTW, after I saw the Chinese characters on the hotel, I should have known to pronounce it "hoong du fahn dian" (king city rice store) instead of "hondo ke dian". Local cabbies do not know the western name of the hotel. Bring the physical address of the hotel if you're unsure how to pronounce Mandarin correctly.

The Hondo is a very good hotel unfortunately not in a very good location unless you need to be across the road from the enormous new stadium. Getting to the Hondo will cost you about $50 (US; Canadian; Australian) in a taxi from the airport or $3 pp on a comfortable coach style air conditioned bus. If you get the bus from the Evergreen bus company it stops at a crossroads downtown and then it is about a 15 minute walk to the Hondo. The local buses are air-conditioned, cheap at only 15c flat and frequent. The subway/skytrain is efficient priced according to distance/sections travelled to but still cheap 20c to 50c and fast but the subway station is down by the crossroads which means a long walk after a busy day. Everything of interest is a long, long walk.
The staff are efficient.
There is a printer with the free computer to print out your next hotel or air fare confirmations.
The folks in Taiwan are very friendly and helpful. You cannot stand longer than two minutes before an English speaking Samaritan steps forward to assist you with directions or instructions on how to use the fare machines in the subway.
