Firstly the hotel is in an alley so might be abit difficult to find. Do bring along the hotel address in chinese and their phone number in case you need to ask around. Nearest MRT is CKS Memorial Hall station about 300m from Exit 2. Service was prompt and people are friendly and helpful. Stayed at the Executive room on the 6th floor. Room was big, nice and clean. The toilet is separated from the main bathroom. Bathroom comes with a jacuzzi and standing shower with rain shower head. Like that the shower has a ventilator that allows you to choose heating to warm up the air before you shower, great for cold wintry nights. Room has a DVD set, safe box and mini fridge. The wardrobe is abit small for two persons. Breakfast was forgettable and I would recommend you to try the Lu Rou Fan nearby. There is always a long queue so you would not missed it. Better to order takeaway. There are shops selling Shen Jian Bao and Hu Jiao Bing, authentic Taiwanese street food, across the street.

As the hotel is very narrow in shape, the corridor do not have much space to maneuver bulky luggage. Do request for soft bedding as the mattress might be alittle too hard for some. Also request for an attached jacuzzi if you are staying in the Executive room. A room with window to allow sunlight in and also do not request for rooms on the 7th floor as the elevator only reaches the 6th. If you stay on the 7th floor you have to carry your luggage up a narrow flight of stairs.

Overall the stay was great and it was value for money.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the 7th floor as it is not serviced by an elevator. Request for attached jacuzzi, soft bedding.

5 mins walk to metro station,quite easy
Clear room but the room is too small for family travelers, hard to make any movement if you have to take the stroller.
Breakfast buffet is average level, good taste but not so much choices.
Providing basic facilities for travelers

We spent 3 nights at Saual Keh Hotel with friends.

From the airport, we took the airport bus and got off Taipei Train Station. Got on a cab and gave the taxi driver the paper with the address written in Chinese. Paid about 80TWD from train station to hotel.

The hotel is inside a small alley. Quaint but cozy. We were given a room upfront with a window facing the side street. I'd recommend you ask for the same coz I'm not sure if the other rooms had windows.

Access to transportation was a breeze. Just walk 2 blocks and you get to the MRT. Another 3 blocks would lead you to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. Getting around Taipei was easy since their train system is very good.

Our room came with free breakfast. Their breakfast was just ok. The regular toast, sausages and scrambled eggs. They also had cereal and congee. Not really a big fan of their breakfast fare but toast and butter was ok to start off our day.

If you get hungry in the middle of the night, there's a 24-hour Yoshinoya at the back area of the hotel. Maybe about 3 blocks. There's are also two 7-11 shops within the vicinity.

There's a bar near Chiang Kai Shek Memorial which sells a pint of beer for 50TWD during happy hour. It's called the Revolver. If in case you go looking for a place to drink, I think this would be okay. Not much bars in that area so the Revolver would be a good choice.

Request for a soft mattress prior to arriving. We found the mattress hard and uncomfortable so we had to request for one.

Staff was courteous and helpful. They even helped me write down the food I wanted to try in Chinese so I wouldn't have a hard time asking around.

I wouldn't mind staying in this hotel the next time I get to visit Taipei.

Room Tip: Make sure to print the hotel's address in Chinese so if ever you need to take a cab, just show the address to the taxi driver.

Hotel is located near CKS memorial hall station. Though our room is provided with a window, the overhead window is so "tiny" that you may as well go without it!.

Room is clean, new, and provided with dvd player and wifi. If you are going to the night market and ximen ding, you can just take the metro directly at CKS without switching metro lines.

PS: I am impressed with the helpful people at taipei and taichung. Even the bus drivers at taichung is so helpful! Well done! Taiwan people!

My family just spent 4 nights at this hotel. It is well located between 2 MRT stations just a few minutes walk away. We were lucky to be upgraded to a King size room with jacuzzi, it certainly offered great value. Room is spacious, clean and interior modern. The bathroom was fitted with a hot air ventilator which was certainly a big plus on a cold winter day. Having read past reviews on hard matresses, we opted for soft mattresses and had a good night sleep under clean white comfy sheets. Reception staff was helpful and even let us have a carton box and tapes to meet our packing requirements. We booked directly from the hotel website and Bonnie replies in English and was helpful in addressing our queries.
My children occupied a triple basement room with no windows. Room 112 is much bigger than room 111. The hotel only has these 2 rooms on triple basis. They were gracious enough to allow us to swop to the bigger room after 1 night. Although the lack of window was acceptable, noise of water running through pipes in the wall did disturb some sleep. Also the bathroom design with a bath tub (without shower) + adjacent shower area without shower enclosure made it difficult to use the bathroom as it was always wet. Both the last 2 problems were present for both basement rooms.
For the rooms on upper floors, although windows are present most either overlook an air well or narrow back alleys where neighbours can look in. Curtains remain drawn for privacy. The wc/toilet is separated from the shower/jacuzzi/wash basin room but the lack of air vent in the toilet is a very unpractical design.
Breakfast was basic (Taiwan porridge or simple Western style) and not much to look forward to.
Overall, the great rates we procured (early bird discounts), spacious rooms, cleanliness, modern design and great location surpassed the minuses mentioned above.

Room Tip: For triple room, request for room 112 which has an extra powder area making it a lot more spacious than 111. King Rooms with jacuzzi are superb and spacious.
