“Good Hotel Decent Location”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We stayed at the Capital for four nights from the 21st to 25th Novemeber, 2012. Rooms were of a pretty decent size with good quality fixtures. The bathroom was of pretty decent in size with quality fixtures and a completely automated Toto closet. The location of the hotel is on a highway. Taxis are available in plenty, however since there are a number of one way roads, getting to a place in time is a bit of a problem and one has to plan well. The buffet breakfast was pretty good, however being a vegetarian the choice was limited. The lobby is pretty small in size and with a few people in it looks crowded. Ariel at the front desk was extremely helpful, and so were all the staff as well as the bell boys. The one problem was that the hotel has no coffee shop and all dining outlets close by 10.30, with just the roof top bar open till after 1 am. We asked for bread and soup in the room at around 11 pm, and we were told that we need to go to the bar for any food that we might need. Overall a decent hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms have either the highway view or the building next door, nothing really to choose from.

I stayed here for 5 nights last October, and it was great. The room itself has a sort of Victorian design, with a very nice and cozy bed & pillow. I was smoking, and they provide a nice balcony in the room.
Bathroom was nice, completed with shower box and big bath tub, also with electronic toilet which is very convenient.
Best part? Free Wi-fi inside the room and the connection was pretty good
Located about 10 minutes walk from metro station
However, they need to add more variant in their breakfast menu, which was kind of limited, most of the menu are japanese and chinese, need more international type of menu.
Staffs are very nice and helpful

A very pleasant surprise, nice place with very good facilities. The location of the hotel is OK, it’s close to the highway and taxis are plentiful. There is an HSBC bank across the road where you can use an International bank card to get funds. Buffet breakfast more Chinese style than western with lots of choices.

Good staff, helpful and they speak enough English to get by….if you don’t speak Mandarin!

I paid 4000 NT$ per night which is more than fair for this quality of hotel.

Highly reccomended.

Very good rooms , spacious and comfortable. Good quality fixtures / amenities in bathroom. However, lobby is very small and in peak hours, crowded and can not find a seat as it can accomodate only about 5 to 6 persons for seating. Restaurant is good but a bit expensive for the quality of food they serve. Not much choice on the menu especially, if you are from asia / India. Location is a negative point as ther are no nearby good shopping / restaurants for food. Room is spacious and bed / speep quality is very good. Little expensive hotel but worth it is you are looking for good quality sleep and have no problem travelling by taxi everywhere which makes it little more expensive. overall, a good hotel with courteous staff.

We were booked in here for a weekend along with another couple who were attending the same wedding banquet as we. We stayed in a room with a king size bed. Large, airy 50 sq m room with one of the biggest and best fitted bathrooms we have encountered! Piping hot water, great pressure. The bed was especially comfortable, the room well appointed. Okay, the decor was a bit French brothel meets Ming Dynasty, with inspiration provided by ingestion of intoxicating substances... but ultimately ignorable. Staff were at all times friendly and helpful. Transport acceptably accessible. Very good value - rates are more negotiable than might appear at first to be so. We would certainly stay there on any future visits to Taipei.
