The room wasn't big but it was nicely decorated and felt modern yet cozy. There was a nice big flat screen TV. There was a small crack on the wall though and everything gets soaked in the bathroom/toilet as there isn't a shower curtain. Shampoo / conditioner / body soap is provided. Faint street noises can be heard even on the higher floor but not terribly distracting. Some people may use this hotel for "resting" so there may be the faint noise of people doing it but it's not too loud.
Pretty good location close to MRT BL3 "XinPu" (新埔)station of Blue/Banqiao Line, maybe less than 5 minutes on foot. The location is not "central" but it takes less than 1/2 hour to get to the busy/shopping areas without transferring and about an hour from the airport via taxi (about 1000 NT one way). It is easy to travel via the MRT. The train station is also within walking distance. There are convenient stores with ATM machines, a few food stands that opens til late, a drugstore (Watson's), and a few restaurants right there.
Hot complimentary breakfast sandwiches with hot or cold drinks can be picked daily and delivered to the door (hung on the door handle outside) at the time designated the night before. They taste okay. Overnight laundry is cheap (100 NT for a pretty large basket).
The night staff was extremely helpful. She helped to print out train time and called around to find out information on how to get to Taroko and went out of her way to provide helpful suggestions.
