Worst hotel ever (if you can even consider this dump as a hotel).
The entire place only occupies one floor in a "commercial" building, sandwiched between clubs/KTV/massage centers ( you name it ). There is a foul odor the moment you step out of the elevator which opens to their tiny dark lobby. Super anal staff: must check in @ 3 , must open luggages @ her designated "space" ( honestly, how big is the lobby?) - ok...but REALLY? Don't throw the used toilet paper into the toilet-bowl?!! Big shocker. where is the hygiene in this place. suddenly I can put a reason to the foul odor here.
Small rooms. Very dark without enough lighting. Poor sewage system - clogging up no matter what. I literally payed for a hotel that makes my life nervous, requiring constant remindings myself not to throw toilet paper into the bowl if not, as their information card quotes that one must be charged if they damaged the system by throwing tissue paper in.
I come back at 3AM and the noise level was unbearable. Ppl doñt sing in KTV downstairs, they shout their lives out. It's also very difficult returning back to the hotel due to the crowded people getting into the club at night.
I guess staff may be friendly but at the same time they are slow and seems to have very little knowledge on dealing with tourists. They wouldn't be able to answer you regarding money exchange shops/ the most efficient ways to get to different place etc.
Yes, Location is alright - but there are others to choose from nearby which could be better. Taxis in Taiwan are also relatively cheap compared to the metro which can be very low - so such a location may not be that important....
BUT PLEASE. DO RECONSIDER YOUR CHOICE.
