We chose this hotel because of a friend's recommendation. However the guest room and breakfast was a bit disappointing.

I chose the marvelous room with the 101 tower view which is supposed to be a suite but it's not as spacious as expected and since my room is on 8/F, the view to 101 is not as marvelous as I would expect (compared to Tokyo tree and Sapporo tower views in Japan).

The room has all that it needs but honestly very basic.

Breakfast was also disappointing. Not a lot of varieties (e.g. No cold cuts) and food quality was average esp the sausages and coffee.

The major PLUS of this hotel is its location as it's only 5-10 minute walk from Taipei 101 and the hotel is within walking distance to all shopping, dining and entertainment (cinema just opposite hotel).

So if anyone is looking for convenience, this is the hotel you are looking for.

Stayed for 3 nights. its near the Taipei 101 and convention center. Attended a meeting in Grand Hyatt. Reasonable price for the room. Friendly staff with good english. The breakfast was ok with variety to choose. The coffee was great.
The check-in was flawless. The room facing taipei 101. It is clean and comfortable. The bed and pillows was nice. Clean restroom.
The shopping areas, cinemas etc is at the adjacent building. Its a happening place at night.
The Qafe at the ground floor is very cosy, good service and nice coffee. A place for discussion or just to look at the people around it. Its like a cafe in Paris. Bravo. Keep the good service and continue smiling.

This hotel is in a truly killer location : few blocks behind the Xinyi Road (Taipei 101 tower), behind the corner of VieShow cinema complex which is convenient to have some quick bites (lots of restaurants), and also 5-7 minutes walk to the Sinko Mitsukoshi department store complexes, the famous Eslite bookstore, and also close to the luxurious Bellavita shopping center.

I have read some reviews complaining the proximity of cinemas as a noisy area, but to me was not as issue at all, as silence & comfort is secured once you get in the hotel.

The general hotel atmosphere is cozy and woody, just like home, and the rooms are very nicely appointed with emphasis on locally made furnishings and amenities. The overall room lighting felt a bit dark to me, but the desk was separately lit by a pendant lamp so it should be no problem for business travelers.

There are three grades of rooms, and also a standard city view or the 101 tower view to choose from. I personally recommend the cheaper city view as 101 is just a walk away and you can always enjoy it when walking back to the hotel - and I felt no need to see the tower from my bed room.
I stayed in the middle grade named "marvelous room", and found it very comfortable because of the size (53sqm), double the size of the "ordinal room" (27sqm). By the way, all room rates includes buffet breakfasts at the bar on third floor which had nice selection of both western and Chinese food.

Room Tip: Reasonable option : "no amenity" package The hotel offers a low priced package for seas...

Planted in the heart of the busy city yet tranquil in your own room. Breakfast is always a good fill with smiles of satisfaction, don't miss out on that. Who cares about all the shopping when you can just snuggle up indoors on a cold holiday. Even when you are miles away from home, this is still Home. Bliss.

Room Tip: Always request for the view of 101.

Your staying in the center of all popular night clubs and eatery and any shopping needs. Rooms are good size and clean. Price is decent for the location. Kinda hard to find the front door or entrance. Would stay there again.

Home Hotel gets it right. As a very frequent business traveller you look for the basics done well: cleanliness - yes: switches that are simple, intuitive, and WORK - yes (and the bonus here is that ALL the electrical outlets have international fittings); good bathroom with sufficient water pressure - yes (but the lighting was a bit to "cool" for shaving!); and reliable fast internet - yes. Comfortable bed and a TV with a variety of local and international channels - yes.

Without being over the top, the rooms worked. And well, and with comfort.

Great location in the middle of the entertainment area. Very easy to get taxis and taxis searched for, and held by, the helpful concierge.

Minor drawback was that the quality of the breakfast (at least the western options), could be improved.

I did not use, but my colleagues all commented on the very well appointed gym connected to the hotel.

All told, a great experience and would not hesitiate to return, or to recommend.

Stayed there for 2 nights, the location is excellent. 101 and other shopping centre can be reached by walking within 10 minutes.
The breakfast is great, have different choices, cereal, bread, and congee. Everything is great in general, will come back for sure.
