Reviewed May 31, 2013

I guess they refurbished the hotel, but it's still an old hotel. Nvm, it's comfortable and livable. The rooms do not have any wifi, you have to go down to the cafeteria for wifi, this is a very bad down side. Otheriwse, it's conveniently located 2 minutes away from the MRT station. Nearby, a lot of local food, market and a foodcourt nearby. Basically if you walk further down, this place is like a financial district with a lot of banks.
Why i say it's interesting, I saw a couple of old uncles with young cute chicks walking into the hotel at night. Love nest hotel eh?

Room Tip: Maybe if you get rooms closer to the cafeteria you may get the wifi? Some rooms are small, some roo...

I was billeted at this hotel for a 4 day business trip in Taipei. I was immediately told that this was a budget hotel, which didn't seem to bother me at first since i have stayed in several budget hotels across Asia with good things to say about most of them. The hotel is located in an alley that is wide enough to accommodate 1 car, but very near (2 minute walk) from the main road. It is also walking distance (5 minutes) to a nearby night market that has food, fruit, and clothes stalls. That's pretty much the good. The bad is that the rooms are old. Walls and ceilings have lots of stains from old wall papers. Very poor insulation from the walls as you can loudly hear other guests conversations in the hallway. No WIFI internet. You have to pay a minimal fee for a cable connector to connect to the internet. Speed was average. The bathroom was big, and reasonably clean. Breakfast was really sad. Oily food with very little choices. The restaurant only serves breakfast and after that the restaurant remains open to hotel guests for their use (24 hours) but no food is made available to order. You can bring food from the outside and use their facilities, with free bottomless coffee and tea, as well as a few biscuits and snacks. Im glad that in my 4 days in Taipei, i was always out the whole day and would just go back to the hotel to sleep. I am rating this hotel on average simply because of this reason, had i stayed longer in this hotel for relaxation and to "enjoy" its facilities, my rating would be worse because their is nothing to enjoy about this property. This is a hotel that you wouldn't be comfortable with to stay in with family.

theres nothing great about this hotel except for the distance from MRT. its just a less than 5min walk from the hotel to the new station name SONG JIANG NAN JING, its a new line opened on dec 2010. not very highly used by the locals. the breakfast is chinese oriental ( porrridge with dishes) and western (just bread and buns). rooms are very small as i booked a business twin( its the second best category ) and it much smaller than in the photos. theres a small night market and quite a number of shops ard the hotel. free internet but not wireless.

The location is good for taking MRT. The Nanjing-Songjiang MRT station is located at the end of the lane (maybe 20 m) where the hotel is situated. Also, there's a jacuzzi & massage chair in the room. Breakfast is good. Altogether a good package.
