We stayed at the Taipei Fullerton East for six nights, and I never felt like I could relax. Everything was very, very dated - 1980 wants its decor back - but also felt like it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in years. There was a musty smell permeating everything, including all my clothes once I got home. There was mold growing all over the bathroom, and the carpet felt moist, so I always wore flip-flops. The water pressure in the shower was good, but it seemed impossible to keep a steady temperature, as it would fluctuate between too cold and scalding with no warning. The curtains were dusty and grimy, and there seemed to be a film of dirt all over everything. I was traveling with several others, and they all reported similar rooms, including some that were smoke-infested despite being on non-smoking floors. The bed was the hardest I've ever encountered, and the AC blasts all night, regardless of adjusting the thermostat, so I didn't have a good night's sleep until boarding a trans-Pacific flight home. Supposedly the higher floors (15) are better and have been updated, but we never saw them.
We did have a nice view of Taipei 101 and the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial, but the SYS subway stop was about a 20 minute walk away, with very little in between. Nanjing Road doesn't have a lot to offer except construction, though the Raohe Night Market is within walking distance if you're up for a stroll.
The staff seemed indifferent and uninterested in answering questions or giving good directions.
I would NOT recommend this hotel, or the location.
