Really nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are very clean, and modern.
Breakfast is included and free WLAN is available. The hotel is great value for money, and the room I was in was free from any hustle and bustle happening outside.

A designer hotel, value for money!

What we loved:
- The location isn't near to any attraction, but it's very near to the metro station.
- The panasonic toilet is amazing, heating and waterjet!
- Breakfast is nice and has wide variety
- Free gym, but we don't have time to use it.
- Nice and interesting design, very modern atmosphere

What we dislike:
- the room is small
- the bed is hard
- free washing, but restricted to 10pm. No time to do any washing by the time we come back. Other hotels have this available for 24 hours.

...The hotel has a funky vibe. I love the colors used in the room, the decorations and the glass bathrooms. Tv comes with movie choices which is great. Free breakfast in the mornings is sufficient enough. Free internet at the lobby. Laundry service can.also be had. Really good deal for the price.

With so many hotel to choose from in Taipei ranging from well known brands to one-off boutique hotels, the Forward is in the middle of both in terms of comfort, and fantastic considering its value for money. From TPE Int Airport take the Evergreen bus to Songjiang Nanjing Road (9 stops) and the hotel is a short stroll across the road and behind the MRT station. From the MRT take the yellow line to Songjiang Nanjing and exit at nbr 2, then turn first right and the hotel is at the end of this short road...its so easy. Location is great as you are close to MRT and can get around so fast in Taipei using public transport. Hotel room was a good size for our family of three, and provide free baby cote. Powerful shower, comfortable bed, free wifi, fridge and water ... all you need plus very clean. Front desk staff helpful and friendly and the breakfast is also included with a good range offered (the man hosting was very friendly and caring with us as our 10mth takes so long to eat). One of my best stays in Taipei and cant wait to return

Room Tip: All good from what I could tell - we had the 8th floor (perhaps they wanted a crying baby far away...

Love this hotel! The amenities provided are good and so is the modern room design. We are also loving the free self-service laundry room where washing powder is provided - good for those who are travelling for more than a week in the city. Breakfast though nothing to rave about it better than the traditional porridge spread some of the hotels in Taiwan provide - nothing wrong but I prefer an international buffet spread.

The minor downsides are the limited room space and the lack of a cupboard to hang our clothes. The only space provided is a clothes rack which can probably only allow you to hang 2 to 3 pieces of clothing - quite a hassle.

Service is ok though they overpromised us by promising to pack breakfast for our very early flight out but somehow they forgotten at the last min and we have to stay hungry till we board our flight.

Location is great as it is only 2 mins' walk away from the nearest MTR station though it is a minor line - you probably have to switch trains at the main station everytime you want to use the MTR. However, if you are going by cab, it is very near to all the downtown location.

Considering its cost and the room quality, it would definitely be my choice hotel for my next trip to Taipei!

We stayed in the corner twin room for 3 nights. Nice design & clean room, the bed is comfortable & quiet surrounding area. Room with big window that it may cannot find in same price hotel in taipei. LOVE the rain shower & bath tub after whole day walking.

Love the wall photo on the room corridor & restaurant, and the lovely message board in restaurant.

Polite & helpful staff. They helped to solved our room door problem in a short time.

Just a few station to the shopping area, but not well-known to taxi driver. You should bring along the hotel name card if take taxi.

Room Tip: Corner room is better, but the WIFI signal seems not that strong but still work.
