“Clean, modern rooms, good rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I've stayed here a few times, the hotel isn't particularly central to Taipei, (it's about 20 mins by cab, 35 mins by metro, and 30 mins by bicycle), but that means its cheaper. It benefits from being directly opposite the Xinzhuang sports park, which has swimming, running and leisure facilities, and is 15 mins walk from Xinzhuang metro stop. The rooms fall into two categories, a normal hotel room, or serviced apartments, which are available from 2 weeks blocks to monthly blocks. One month is great value, it works put at about £500 for a double room, which is great value! The serviced apartment rooms are very clean and modern, with free wifi, a decent breakfast (for a westerner) at the weekends, desk, couch, ensuite and a little kitchen area with sink and microwave, as well as some cups and cutlery, and a fridge. Everything you need for a leisure or business trip. The restaurants nearby are varied and many,including McDonald's and KFC just around the corner, but the noodle bar on the street level is excellent, I recommend their beef noodles !

Room Tip: Only about 6 of the rooms have windows, and those tend to be booked almost all the time, so get in e...

During my five nights in Taiwan I stayed at the Landmark Inn in New Taipei City.

It was recommended to me when I went online asking for a decent place as close as possible to Xinzhuang Stadium where I was going to be spending most of my time watching the World Baseball Classic qualifying tournament.

Rooms are from between $80 – $120 depending on the size. The location was excellent for the stadium main entrance was just 800m away. Even though I was in the area known as Xinzhuang, New Taipei which is more of an industrial area there was plenty of restaurants and parks in the close vicinity.

It was a tiny, skinny building on a busy intersection but I never noticed the noise in my room which faced the street. Rooms on the other side have a great view of the mountains in the distance.

Breakfast is included and considering how few rooms (and therefore guests) they have it was quite substantial. A small buffet section that changed everyday as well as having the option to order off the menu.

The rooms were like a step back in time but they were super clean and everything worked including the fax machine (I assume!) The bathroom was new and the high water pressure that was super hot was a pleasure after spending over 10 hours at the baseball in freezing weather!

What will make this place stick in my memory though is the staff. I have never seen anything like it. They treated me like family. Nothing was too much trouble. They went way beyond what I have ever experienced at a hotel anywhere in the world. They fussed over my 74 year old Auntie like you wouldn’t believe and when we managed to give them a few tickets to one of the games we were showered with gifts as they tried to say thank you.

One of my business dreams is to one day own and run a hotel of some sort. It got me thinking about what really matters when it comes to being better then all your competition. Do you spend money on that extra pillow for the bed, a TV for the bathroom or extra fluffy bath robes so you can turn your establishment from a 3 star place into a 4 star one? Or, do you keep it as a 3 star and spend the money on staff training so that customers get 5 star service? I think I already know the answer.

Room Tip: Grab a room as high up and at the back if you want a good view of the mountains in the distance

Hotel is located about 4 kms from HSR station and in the main junction makes it convenient to stay. But unless you have the full address in Chinese, it will be difficult to reach by taxi.

Hotel restaurant is good but breakfast choices are very limited. Hotel is sorrounded by many restaurants, Sushi express, KFC, McD, Mos Burger etc makingit convenient for travellers from all the sides.

Hotel is near a big stadium and you can have a relaxing walk in the evening.

You will also be provided with some refreshing drinks and fruits on the room everyday along with some snacks.

Hotel is bit costly compared to similar hotels nearby.

I've been coming here for years, and I always feel like it's a home away from home. A very courteous staff, and the rooms are always clean and tidy. they could go for some new rugs, but otherwise, a great value, and next to the largest park in Taipei.

Modern rooms and a great team of staff made our trip to Taiwan a success. If you want a more cultural experience away from Taipei main, this is the place to be. Simon and his staff made all our airport arrangements, dinner suggestions, taxi transport and even get togethers with friends simple. They speak and understand English well and pride themselves in providing excellent all round service. The rooms are modern and spacious in comparison to other Taipei hotel rooms. The breakfast food is just ok, but there is lots of food just outside your door. The best way to the MRT is a short taxi ride costing a few dollars and you're only 3 stops from downtown. A great spot, we will be back next year

While the rooms are small, they make great use of space, including a pivoting flat-screen TV in the middle of the room that turns 360 degrees (facing the sofa on one side; facing the bed on the other). There is a kitchenette, bar fridge, and a fancy ventilation system in the washroom that allows you to dry clothing overnight (very handy for me as I hand-washed my own clothing). There is also a hidden sliding door within the wall, with a full-length mirror attached. Again, great use of space.

I would give the hotel a perfect rating were it not for its distance from downtown (about a 30-minute bus ride), and the three cockroaches we found in our room on three different occasions. At least we did not see the roaches until the last 3 days of our 1-month stay.

Front-desk staff are really nice, and will direct you on how to take the bus to downtown. There are two different buses that go downtown, and they run quite frequently (I never had to wait longer than 5 minutes). Also, the bus stop is practically outside the hotel (next to the big park if your heading toward downtown).

The neighbourhood of the hotel gives you a real taste of local life, with very few tourists in the area. It is fun to explore the local shops, markets, restaurants, and the park when you're not exploring the downtown Taipei area.

Good news for the future: my understanding is that one of the Taipei subway lines will be extended to this area.

This hotel was a breath of fresh air in a Taipei County that is submerged in tradition. It was the perfect headquarters for people wanting to get the 'real' Taiwan experience. The hotel is located in the heart of Taipei county, which is great for accessibility to local food and markets, but not great for a visit to Taipei City. It is approximately 20 minutes by bus. The bus station is conveniently located next to the hotel, and the staff are always willing to point you in the right direction.

The staff are friendly and, while they don't speak much English, they make every effort to try to understand. Sometimes, they even walk you to a restaurant and order for you! Very helpful!

The rooms are clean and modern (for Taiwan standards). It is not the same as an American chain hotel, but it is also the most advanced for the area. The wireless internet was free and fast and the hotel had lots of laundry services. The restaurant was the biggest let down, serving mostly cold breakfasts and lacking variety.

All in all, the hotel was of great quality and had great service. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who needed to stay in the Taipei county area.
