My family and I stayed here for a total of 6 days, split into a 2 night stay and another 2 nights after our return from Yilan. The building is located just beside the Z8 exit of Taipei Main Station, quite a long walk when we first arrived. We had to carry our luggage up the flight of stairs at the Z8 exit, but we realised that were easier alternatives by crossing a few traffic lights from the Taipei Main Station.
Room: Toilet is furnished with all the basic necessities: toothbrush/toothpaste, towels, comb, shampoo/soap etc. Nice blue square tiles and rain shower at the bathing area. Walls of the rooms are rather thin as mentioned by other reviewers; you may hear television noises if your neighbour turned the volume rather loud. They do not have a cabinet, but there is a bar with 2 hangers to hang coats/towels etc. Drinking cups are disposable paper cups which I'm neutral about, no worries.
Service: No doubt a small hotel with just one level and a small lobby, I was pleased with the service. Whenever my family and I headed out, the staff would ask if I wanted room service. When I was back after a long day, I would see a clean and neat room. Additional requests for extra pillows, change of room (as the bed of my parent's room was sort of slanted) were fulfilled with no worries. Staff always had a pleasant tone and I always felt at ease.
Breakfast: Simple meal of porridge and condiments, the condiments were good! There was also sliced white bread with 3 different spreads. Coffee, tea and milk were available as well. A simple setting, but I suggest you just the breakfast at least once. Breakfast for other days can be settled at nearby eateries (eg food stalls downstairs, walk slightly further up and there will be a few bakeries and Starbucks as well).
Location: Felt that it was a great location, given the fact that it was within reach of the Taipei Main Station, Shinkong Mitsukoshi etc. However the renovation works start as early as 7am in the morning and may be a problem to light sleepers. Do take some time to walk around the area behind the hotel, there are good food all around!
Overall, I felt that I had a good stay at this hotel. If you do not mind walking a little further back to the hotel when you reach Taipei Main Station, this could be a nice place to rest just for a few hours. For the value, I could not ask for more. However I don't recommend this hotel for families with small children/babies.
