“Another Great find for SGL traveler”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Found this hotel by chance. There were two lift lobby (one on main road, another opp Keymans hotel). Right next to all transportation networks. Great base for single traveler esp with the value (NT$1100 for wkday). Rooms are clean, staff were friendly. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Request for room which are not facing the main street.

My family, with two teenagers, stayed here on and off for a total of 2 weeks from end of June to early July. The fact that the hotel was conveniently located across from the Taipei Main Station, as many have mentioned, enabled us to go basically anywhere in Taiwan via the readily available trains, MRT(subway), and buses. There are also many restaurants and eateries on streets near the hotel. There was a McDonald, Burger King, Starbucks, and 7-11 nearby. Baozi can be purchased right downstairs.

Housekeeping and 4 bottles of water were provided daily. A/C and TV both worked great. There was no refrigerator in the room, but a big refrigerator was available for use in a room adjacent to the lobby. A washer and a dryer were also available in the same room. Hotel personnel were very accommodating to requests. The gentleman sitting at the front desk was friendly and eager to provide directions to wherever we were going. Several mornings, my wife and I got up early, sat in the lobby with our laptop and chatted with him for 20 minutes or more (in Mandarin of course) while waiting for the kids to get up. I had no problem accessing the internet from either our room or lobby. Overall, I recommend this hotel based on its location, accommodation, and price. Can't wait to visit Taiwan again.

Room Tip: I found the best way to make reservation was via e-mail.

This place is a really good deal for Taipei. The location is ideal (across the street from taipei main station). Love the fact that it is within 5 min. walking distance from the airport shuttle. The room is clean, very spacious, has a nice TV with plenty of channels (also in English) and the AC worked really well. Free use of washing machine, washing powder and dryer. Free water, tea and plenty of toiletries. The wifi wasn't always working well, but it was free.

The only minor complaint I have is the smell of the room. The room smelled like old socks although I don't think this is a really big issue as you can open the window. The staff changed a lot and in general they were quite friendly. They let us check in early which I really appreciated. One lady somehow just couldn't recognize us as guests even though we have met several times. I never experienced this before. Don't get me wrong I don't expect people to know my room number etc, but even in bigger hotels people recognize you (or they pretend to :)). Some staff members speak better English than others, but enough to help you out if you don't speak Mandarin.

We booked this hotel quite easily by email. They respond really fast. I emailed them couple times with questions and they answered the same day! A room for 2 ppl was 1500 NTD on weekdays and 1800NTD for holidays and weekend. You can get their email address from their website which is in Chinese, but they will respond to English emails. Overall great value!

I stayed at this hotel because it was booked by the choir group of my home church from Malaysia.

For a budget hotel, I think this place was excellent. The room was spacious and clean. They even gave us free mineral water every day (4 bottles per room because we had a room for 4 people). Forget the toothbrush or need a shaver? They will replenish every day for you.

The location of the hotel across the street from Taipei station is also very convenient as you can pretty much go anywhere you want with the train/metro system. Shopping and food are all within walking distance as well.

Finally, on the last night of our stay, we were SO happy there was a computer (although not exactly a good one) in the "lobby" (not exactly a lobby but who cares?) because we needed to make a last minute purchase online for our airline ticket back to Malaysia (Long story short: we were in emergency mode searching for a ticket to go home and glad that we had access to a computer since it was getting late at night!). The employees who stayed late that night was also very helpful in helping us to print out our itinerary after we finally made the purchase.

I love this hotel and will probably stay here again if I visit Taipei next time.

for the price there is really no complaint. the location is convenient right next to the metro, the place and room are clean, cleaning services is punctual, the staff gave me a map, drew directions on it, taught me how to find the places i want to goto and give me really helpful and detailed suggestions where i should visit. even after i checked out, they let me get a bottle of water as i was feeling really hot. (i went in the summer time) they also kindly let me kept my luggage at their storage room. as well they replied to their emails really promptly. the wireless was great too.
i rate the fitness centre as average as there's none.

Very convenient as it near Taipei Main Station, Sinkong Dept Store, lots of eateries and walking distance to Ximending. Extremely convenient if you intend to take the morning express trains out of Taipei.

Extremely helpful and when they were sensing you have too many queries or worries, called directly to your number to explain things. I was indeed very surprised by their call. Willing to help within their means, all you need is just ask. Once deposit charged to your card, they will email you the charge slip. Before that they will ask you the preferred currency and let you know the amount before charging.

Rooms are comfortable and stayed for one week without any complains except that housekeeping accidentaly took my eye pillow whilst cleaning and could never find it back. Bathrooom is slightly odd as it was on raised floor since this is actually a commercial building. Used this hotel as my base for entire trip as do not want to move too many times with a toddler and old folks. Toddler loved the hotel.

No wifi internet and only two PC at lobby for guests use. At times and depends on room location, can tap on wifi of another hotel (SLove Hotel) beneath. Room only, no cafetaria etc.

There are two entrance to this hotel and depends where you are headed, can use the nearest entrance.
