I've stayed in this hotel on multiple occasions, and my overall impression is that this is a great value: its a small, clean & easy hotel located in the Taipei "satellite city" of Banciao, just a few blocks from the Ximendang MRT station. Banciao is a nice.. "quiter" area to the east of central Taipai, along the blue MRT line. The hotel is close to a great traditional market and lots of great dining options, and the convenient MRT station makes getting to the rest of Taipai fast and easy. The hotel is usually clean and quiet, and includes room-delivered bfast from the McDonald's next door. As an American, I'd say that last gesture is rather..um.. "cute"? 2 bottles of water provided every day, plus onsite laundry + coffee & tea service, all included. Front desk is very helpful, but like most smaller, non-western hotels in Taiwan, they don't speak a lick of English, so don't even bother. THAT BEING SAID, I debated giving this hotel a higher score, but my last stay was a BIG disappointment, because at least 2 rooms on my floor were occupied by prostitutes, and so it was in-and-out with clients ALL NIGHT LONG, and of course, the sounds of their "activities" were easily heard through the walls and down the halls. I've got nothing against sex-workers making a living, but this was NOT the sort of place I expected to have to deal with this sort of thing. This went on for 3 nights until I checked out to find another place to stay. Very disappointed that they allowed this sort of thing to go on. This is a small hotel, so there's no excuse for this. I'd love to go back next time I'm in Taiwan to find it nice & quiet as it was before.. not sure if I want to risk it.. You've been warned.
