“if you dont mind the squeaking sound”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

the hotel structure is well located. lobby was good. well lighted. designs are good. rooms are good as well, views inside room are fantastic if your facing the lake. if not then you will see parking area. beds are comfortable. Toilet are big. and you have the option to take shower or tab. they also include weighing scale. breakfast was yummy.. a lot of selection. the only concern about this hotel is the smell if you cannot stand the woody scent inside room. but then again your staying in a forrest area. everything would smell about the same. while the squeaking sound from the room if someone would be walking or running around. chinaware would make small moving sound as the woods would move as well making it sound like ghost trying to use the tea cups.

The Richforest is a very good value for your money in Taipei. Good rooms, good size, clean and modern. The staff is a bit... cold at times but well, check-in and out were smooth so I'm not complaining. They could be a bit more welcoming though.
The drawback is that there is not subway station nearby. You can either take a bus or a taxi. Taxis are not too expensive in Taipei but if you do this 2 or 3 times a day, you'll feel it in your final bill. I would stay there again if I cannot find any other better location for this category of hotels.
The website pictures make the room and everything else look very big and roomy... it's just an illusion. The rooms are not small but they are definitely not as big as they seem on the website.

This hotel has been renovated recently.
We got the room 615 which is a double room with a great bathroom (shower, bath included with bright window).
The room are not very big, but clean and well decorated in modern standard.
TV have international channels and bed are confortables.
Staff attitude was ok with decent english and service (for the category of price).
Breakfast is a mix of european and chinese dish and the restaurant is pleasant.

The hotel offer free access to 2 washing machines and to a small gym.
Do not miss the roof-top on 9th floor. Excellent view on 101. You can grab a beer at 7/11 and enjoy the view !

Location is convenient if you like to hang out in xinyi. 101, sogshan are few min away by taxi.

The con of this hotel: it welcome tour of china mainland tourist group which can be VERY noisy when they gather 30 in the corridor at night or early morning.

In summary, a great offer for value in Taipei with nice room and convenient location. But do not expect 5 stars.

Room Tip: avoid the room on the road. Avoid rooms at floor where they welcome china tourist group

I stayed at the Sunny Business Inn for 10 days in Sept 06, and had a wonderful time. The help was very friendly, the rooms were unbelieveably clean, the breakfast service at an adjoining restaurant downstairs was very good, and Gina and Cathy at the front desk were "TOP NOTCH." Gina helped me book a day trip to Giufen with the care a mother would provide her own son.

As for location, the area is very nice. You can walk 2 minutes to the Core Pacific living mall, which is 10 stories tall and resembles the "Death Star" on its south side..(you'll have to see it). It is about 30 minutes leisure walk to Sun Yat Sun Memorial, and another 10 to Taipei 101.

I cannot say enough good things about my stay here. If you want good service, a spacious room, great bathtub, and an affordable rate... I say this is your place.... And if you see Cathy or Gina...say "Jerry sent you.".
