Location: Right in the middle of the main commercial stretch, right outside the subway (literally), which makes getting around so so easy. There are at least two department stores which are within 5 mins walk and dozens of restaurants and cafes. The area is very safe and very bustling - gives you a sense that you are in the heart of it all.
Rooms: What great value, we got a 2 bedroom suite (with two bathrooms and a dining area) for the same price of a standard 4-5 star hotel room. There are no facilities like a concierge, breakfast or a restaurant, but who needs those when you have plenty of local restaurants just around the corner.
Correspondence: Fast and professional, I didn't have to wait more than 12 hours for Janly or Howard to respond each time I wrote to them.
Apartments are well hidden: The apartments are hidden away in huge building complexes (with no signage) which means they are a little harder to find if you are coming by yourself. I would recommend using their transfer service to make the trip that much easier.
Some paper work involved: You will be renting apartments not hotel rooms, so there is going to be paperwork involved i.e. signing contracts and putting down deposits. I wish staying there is as simple as giving them a credit card, but it really is a small price to pay for staying at such a wonderful place!
In short: If you are looking for bigger sized rooms located in the center of the city during your next stay in Taipei and are willing to do without services like breakfast, a business center or a concierge then definitely stay here - you won't regret it!
