MRT Hotel

Reviewed November 12, 2013

My supplier booked this hotel for me because all the surrounding hotels are fully booked. Not a bad choice. The hotel is located very near to a MRT station (I guess hence its name). There are big shopping centre and eateries around. A good location indeed.

The original reservations was for two nights but I had to stay 3 nights, as a result, I have to change room on the third day because of prior bookings.

Spent the first two night in an Executive Suite. Other than stains on the carpet, the room is very clean, nothing to complain about. It faces the main road but surprisingly the traffic noise is not that bad.

The 3rd night was spent in their Deluxe Suite. The room is a much bigger. One thing I find odd is to have such a good room located opposite the lift lobby. So much for privacy. The cleanliness of this room is not up to standard - dust and chips crumbs under the cushions and sofa. Lucky for me I do not have to use the sofa. This room faces an alley but traffic noise is much louder than the other side. This comes as a surprise to me.

Overall, if not because of the cleanliness problem encountered in the last room, I would say I have had a very good stay.

My husband and I stayed here twice while in Taipei. It has a great location right beside the Fuzhong MRT station (exit 2). The rooms are very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and they cleaned it each day. Everything in the room worked well. We were in a room beside the Main Street but we didnt hear any noise. My only complaint is that every time the cleaner came she turned the ac down really low and we couldn't get it set nicely again because the controls were in mandarin.

The rate includes breakfast but it was a bit average by western standards. There is toast for a simple breakfast. The staff were friendly but didnt speak much English. They let us keep a bag at the hotel while we toured the rest of taiwan, which we appreciated. It is a bit out of the city center but there are lots of restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

This Hotel is a super affordable way to stay conveniently in Taipei. It is only a 2 minute walk from the Fuzhong Metro Station and has a convenience store across the street.
The room was clean and larger than I expected. It had a refrigerator and tea/coffee. I would stay here again.

Right above Fuzhong MRT station, and a stone's throw away from a myriad of shops across the road. Rooms are small but extremely comfortable and the price is definitely worth it. Accessible to all parts of Taipei (with the trains, you can pretty much get anywhere) Definitely coming back to stay here the next time I visit Taipei again.

A small funky little hotel right next to the FuZhong MRT station. It's pretty basic, but the rooms are clean and there is free WIFI in the rooms, and breakfast included between 6AM to 7PM. The basic rooms are pretty small, with the bigger suites only slightly more expensive. Worth the upgrade. Ask for a non-smoking room/floor if required.

The rain-head showers are reliably hot, and room service is friendly and well done. There is a convenience store directly across the street, and a couple of cafes/restaurants right downstairs.

Overall - it's a great place to stay if you're looking to save a bit of money, but want the convenience of the MRT. Also - it's right across the street from a lot of shops/restaurants/karaoke bars/gyms which open till 11PM most nights.

Room Tip: Ask for non-smoking if required, and also the Suite upgrades are worth it!

We usually stayed at Grandforward which is about 300m away but took MRT Hotel due to GF is fully booked. This year we tooked 2 family rooms on the 5th n 6th Floor.

This Hotel is small as compared to GF, total of 9 floor(actually 8 as no 4th floor) w about 6 rooms each floor.

The room is clean and the bath room is big and they provide all the neceassary items including tooth brush and comb.

However, there are no WIFI in room and you have to go to the 9th floor to access to wifi. There are also no washing machine in the hotel and there is no laundary shop within 1km.

The lobby is also very small and you basically had to wait outside the hotel as there are no seating arrangement in the lobby.

If there are room available at GF, i will not hesitate to pay 1K NT more per night to at GF instead of MRT
