From the moment our taxi arrived, the staff gave us the warming greetings. Because my husband had a work meeting to attend that day, they asked the cleaning crew to expedite our room so we can check into our room before he left work for.
There is no iron & ironing board in the room so I had phoned in the request. Within minutes, a friendly staff brought them to our room.
The location is close to both train and MRT subway stations. There's always taxi lined up outside (I would opt for taxi service on a hot, humid day because a 30-minute ride cost under 300NT, which is around $10 USD).
Few things that I did not like. (1) Because my husband's work booked the hotel for his work trip, they only provided one complimentary breakfast for him alone. Most hotels that we've been to charge the same fee for single or double occupancy and therefore would provide one or two breakfasts depending on the number of guests. (2) Tried to fill up the cute round tub in our room but the water was lukewarm (even with no cold water turned on). (3) The night lights on the floor are motion-sensored so every time I'd get up to use the bathroom at night, they would turn on and wake my husband up. I am sure there's a way to turn them off, but the lighting switches in the room were not clearly marked.
