Picked this off the SLH website, and procured a T room (two girls) and a U Balcony room (dude). I was pleasantly surprised by the quirky decor, esoteric font - Stay Understated, posits the coffee mugs, and recurring motifs of moose (meese?) and bunnies throughout the hotel. There was a black bunny in the toilet, equipped with Japanese style heated bog, which was most amusing. A heavy curtain separates the roomy bathroom from the sleeping area.
Great facilities such as the B&W airplay iphone dock, free minibar, and the everything-you-might-need lounge on the second floor. Service is a little inconsistent - room service will bring you soda and chips at one instance upon request, but tell you there is a charge for bringing the items up the next time you call. Very strange. That said, the lounge with vats full of goodies is understandably convenient. Breakfast is of a good variety, yummy, and one is welcome to eat at the lounge if the first level is too crowded. The manager, Teresa, is very efficient. She approached us, apologised, and offered us a complimentary voucher - high tea for two - for the in house 333 restaurant as there'd only been one bottle of water for two people in T room. It was a thoughtful and unexpected gesture because neither of us had actually noticed the oversight, so kudos for service recovery. High tea at 333 was decent, though nothing to rave about.
Location is ok, considering Taipei city is not very near the main Taoyuan airport. We took about an hour's bus from the airport, stopped at Nanjing East and walked over. Easy to bus back to the airport as well; the return bus stop is outside the Sunworld Dynasty Hotel around the corner. The hotel is a comfortable distance from the Nanjing East station, smack next to Momo Department Store, and a back alley 10 seconds from Quote leads to a convenience store and 3 pushcarts with yummy street food. Further down from Quote leads to a wonderful discovery, Cellar Lounge Bar - an elegant sofa-lined space with lethal poisons.
Good for couples and friends, bad for my liver and hips. Would stay again.
