I stayed at this hotel for two nights a few days ago.
Taxi ride from Taipei airport costed 1200NT.
Greeted by a concierge who spoke english, and who showed us to the third floor for check-in. Check-in was quick and easy.
Room had a good size for a boutique hotel. Nice and very clean. Large window overlooking the city (and Taipei 101, which is an approximate 10-15 min walk from the hotel). The bed was firm and comfortable with comfy pillows (4). Many lights in the room, and are easily turned on/off (all or one by one) by control buttons near the bed. Ipod/Iphone radio dock/alarm clock was well-appreciated, quality of sound was actually pretty good! What I loved most about this room was the shower. Nice and big, made out of big ceramic tiles, it had a "rain" type of shower head as well as a hand-held nozzle. Water pressure was great!
Since there are bars in the area, you do hear a little noise at night, but it's to expect when you're in a such busy area. Maybe not the best if you're the kind to wakeup to every single sound and not able to fall back to sleep! For me, it wasn't a problem.
Didn't use the concierge service or front desk that much, but each time we passed by we were nicely greeted.
Breakfast was very western-type of food. Choices were: spaghetti, vegetables, scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, fried variety (chicken fingers, hashbrown potatoes, fries, chicken wings), fresh fruits, fried rice, hot dog. There was grape juice, milk, water but best was the coffee, where you could have either regular filter coffee, or have either an americano, latte from an espresso machine. Nice touch. The bar had a good selection of drinks. Bartender was very friendly and spoke good english. Was also making impressive drinks!
If you're looking to find yourself submerged in an unfamiliar surrounding, this hotel isn't for you. It's in a very shopping area, where you will find a ton of high-end brands like Chanel, Gucci, Burberry. Very modern. Lots of bars in the area also.
All in all, I had a good experience at this hotel and would recommend it, if the description above fits your needs!
