This is the second we as a family have stayed at this hitel, the first being two years ago. While the deor and settings have changed ( all for the better), what distinguishes this hotel from many others is their SERVICE, as captured by the title to this view.
The staff are highly professional, and went out of their way several times to help us in practical matters, all the time with a genuine attitude of care and compassionate concern that went far deeper than superficial politeness which is prevlalent in Asia. We appreciated this in particular as both times, we struggled with unplanned for medical illnesses in ourselves and our children.
We have to shout out an amazing THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF THERE, especially Daniel, Lily, Iris and Nick! Our seven year old daughter Alicia also says ' 5 out of 5 for service and awesome rooms!'
The location of this hotel is fantastic...essentially right next to Zhongshan MRT station, so all the sights of Taipei are within a travellers reach. Their breakfasts were also delicious, and had a great variety of foods.
We shall certainly be back next time, whether as solo travellers or as a family unit!

It used to be a tourist hotel to host foreign tourists, which very few hotels in Taipei could do; plus the hotel was close to the American Ambassador Residency (which now has become the Spot-Taipei Film House), and was located on Tainjin St. where Japanese tourists gathered.
