“Good hotel but location so so....”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Stayed 2 nights with a tour group. 2 mins to MRT station with shops nearby.
Comfortable and clean. No complain on the room.
But if you are in Taipei for a shopping trip, this is not the ideal hotel as it is far from Ximenting and major shopping areas.

I have stayed here a few times now for business. The rooms are clean and tidy, MRT is 2 minutes walk away, and some good places to eat within 5 minutes. Breakfast is ok, with fair variety for all. Plenty of shops nearby. Worth considering

Stayed there for 7 days. It is a decent hotel without much facilities to talk about.
The location is ok, near MRT station and definitely enough shops and restaurants around the area.
The room is clean and well maintained. The breakfast in the hotel is average. This place is good for business trip or short stay.

Stayed only 1 night. The interior of the room appears to be quite well maintained. Bed was comfortable. Can't say much about location cos it was only an overnight stay. Room and bathroom were very clean.

Older hotel that's been refurbished a bit. It's all very average. The wifi is free, but the throughput sucks and is worthless for Skyping home. There is wired Internet at the room's desk that's a bit more stable, but sometimes Skype struggled with that connection, too. There is breakfast offered in the morning, but the hot items are lukewarm and overall it's not that good. There are several restaurants within walking distance. We had dinner at Jolly, a microbrewery that serves Thai food, a couple of nights and enjoyed it. There are some Western options across the street that we didn't try. The hotel gives you a "free" drink coupon for its lobby bar. The coupon is worth Taiwan 150, which is enough to buy a bottle of Taiwan Beer and not much else, but you have to pay the tax in cash. If you order anything else, you pay the difference plus tax. Maybe that's why the bar was always empty.

Just returned from a week's stay in a deluxe suite. Hotel is located in Neihu and was chosen because of proximity to the Taipei Exhibition Ctr. Although it is not located in the city, the MRT (Huzhou station) is about 5 min walk away and there is no lack of cabs. 7-11s, a couple of great bakeries (Hogan's), eateries, Post Office, are within 10 min walking distance. Hotel is quiet even though the building is near the MRT track and at a busy road junction. Guest room is well stocked and cleaned daily. On the roof level, there is a simple gym area as well as a laundry corner with washing machines and dryers (complimentary) where you can get your washing cleaned. Unfortunately no pool nor spa within the property though. The room stay cost was however pricier than usual (as in all other hotels) as there was a major exhibition in the city. Otherwise, it was overall a decent, comfortable stay and being in this location also allowed us to experience staying in the suburban side of a beautiful city. We booked a half day tour to Jiufen from the hotel - convenient and easy. Plenty of reasonably-priced eats in Taipei and the people are polite and thoughtful.

Stayed 4 nights here in March 2012.
The metro stop is just 2 mins walk away from the hotel. It is not difficult to get find food. There is a 24 hrs Mos Buger and a few good restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. The hotel provide free breakfast.
The room is nice and clean, and the staff is friendly. The hotel provide free transport to nearby location, just make booking at the check-in desk.
Excellent business hotel but for holiday makers it a bit far away from the major Taipei tourist sites.
