My wife and I stayed in Forward Hotel for a few nights back in November 2012. We were quite pleased with the overall experience, though our room was small, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable to sleep in. Another positive note is the strategic location, which is only 3 minutes away from the closest MRT station on foot. Seven eleven is also just around the corner for you to buy some water and groceries. The only downside of our stay is the language barrier that we had with the front desk staff. But overall, i would definitely stay in this hotel again in the future, as it is worth the money, and location wise is perfect after a long journey wandering around in the city of Taipei.
