“Lovely hotel well located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

My family just spent 4 nights at this hotel. It is well located between 2 MRT stations just a few minutes walk away. We were lucky to be upgraded to a King size room with jacuzzi, it certainly offered great value. Room is spacious, clean and interior modern. The bathroom was fitted with a hot air ventilator which was certainly a big plus on a cold winter day. Having read past reviews on hard matresses, we opted for soft mattresses and had a good night sleep under clean white comfy sheets. Reception staff was helpful and even let us have a carton box and tapes to meet our packing requirements. We booked directly from the hotel website and Bonnie replies in English and was helpful in addressing our queries.
My children occupied a triple basement room with no windows. Room 112 is much bigger than room 111. The hotel only has these 2 rooms on triple basis. They were gracious enough to allow us to swop to the bigger room after 1 night. Although the lack of window was acceptable, noise of water running through pipes in the wall did disturb some sleep. Also the bathroom design with a bath tub (without shower) + adjacent shower area without shower enclosure made it difficult to use the bathroom as it was always wet. Both the last 2 problems were present for both basement rooms.
For the rooms on upper floors, although windows are present most either overlook an air well or narrow back alleys where neighbours can look in. Curtains remain drawn for privacy. The wc/toilet is separated from the shower/jacuzzi/wash basin room but the lack of air vent in the toilet is a very unpractical design.
Breakfast was basic (Taiwan porridge or simple Western style) and not much to look forward to.
Overall, the great rates we procured (early bird discounts), spacious rooms, cleanliness, modern design and great location surpassed the minuses mentioned above.

Room Tip: For triple room, request for room 112 which has an extra powder area making it a lot more spacious t...

Medium level hotel with good price. Rooms are clean and staff is helpful. The hotel is located very close to the Chiang Kai-Shek memorial hall metro station. There is wireless connection in the rooms and breakfast is served in the morning. The only drawback was the absence of windows in our room.
In case of going back to Taipei, we'll go back in the same hotel!

The hotel is not expensive and it has a convenient location; only a 5min walk with a 6yr old in tow, to Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall Metro Station and from there, it's only 2 stations away from ximending and taipei main station, depending on which line you take. The room (i opt for softer bed) and bathroom (with a deep bathtub and self-adjustable bathroom warmer and ventilation facilities) are very clean and i like the modern design. There is a 7-11 convenience stall (can get the directions from the staffs), a dessert eatery, a bakery and a LuRouFan eatery near the hotel.

Coming from the airport, I took the high speed rail to taipei main station (you can take a coach), and from there, hop onto a cab to the hotel (5min ride, NT110). Do have the full address of the hotel with you, as it's just a very small hotel and i don't think most cabbies know of its existence. If one opt to take the metro from taipei main station to the hotel, alight at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall Station, look for exit 2 once you alight from the metro. Once out from exit 2, walk straight, there should be a main road on your left and some shops on your right. Walk straight till you see lane 90 (around a 5min walk), then turn right and you should see the hotel, a purple building. Alternatively, the hotel provides scheduled airport pick at cost of NT1000 for 1-3pax and NT1200 for 4-6pax. (45-60min ride)

Official check out time is at 12pm and check in is at 6pm. For those who want to check in earlier, the earliest time allowed is probably around 1-3pm (depending on how fast they clean up the rooms). Anything earlier than that will cost NT580 for the first 2hr and NT200 for subsequent additional hour of rest.

Things that come free with the room are: toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair tie, facial cotton pad, dental floss, cotton buds, shower cap, shaving cream, shaver, comb, handsoap, shampoo, shower gel (no bubble bath gel though) and 2 bottles of mineral water a day. Not forgetting the free breakfast, which i think is mediocre as im not into the porridge and dishes kind of breakfast. Bread, chinese mantou, milk and cereal and scrambled eggs (not made to order) are also provided. Do note that breakfast hours is from 7am to 9.30am only.

For bigger rooms, opt for rooms on 7th floor. But the con is that there is no elevator to the 7th floor, so one has to climb the very narrow stairs with the luggage. The hotel does not have bellboys but one can seek assistance from the staffs at the counter if one needs help with the luggage.

On the 7th floor, there is a small gym and a laundry room(Washer NT80, Dryer NT80). There is no swimming pool in the hotel. Free-wifi is provided in all rooms and if you find the connection unstable, you can inform the staffs and a router will be set up in the room.

For ladies who are travelling alone, the walk from the metro to the hotel may be a little quiet at night.

Service could be warmer, as some staffs did not even bother to give a wintry smile.

Booked a weekend stay with my wife and ended up with a king bed, large room, nice large bathroom with double jacuzzi tub, separate shower. We asked for a foam pad to put atop the typically firm mattress and we were very happy. Room was quiet and clean. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, location is on Roosevelt between the Guting and CKS MRT stations, so it's easy to reach on foot. Look for lane 90, the hotel is about 30 feet down the lane. We'll stay there again.

A full Chinese breakfast buffet is included, but has limited offerings for Western palates.

Room Tip: The hotel is off the main road, so all rooms are likely to be fairly quiet. Ask for a high floor, th...

We recently stayed here for three nights for our wedding photo shoot and here is the breakdown of our stay:

1. Location: Central and very near to MRT. There are plenty of food around the hotel. When searching for the hotel, do look carefully as it is in a small lane.

2. Rooms: Modern and very clean. Nice jaccuzi and Sauna in the toilet ! This is indeed a great feature to have !

3. Service: Good.

4. Amenities: Wi-fi in the room worked fine without any problems. They have laundry and a small gym on the 6th floor.

Overall, this hotel is a good choice if you can get a cheap rate and you've been to Taipei before.

The location is near by MRT station, so it's easy for us to travel in Taipei. We enjoyed a lot with nice room service and breakfast, but the price is affordable. Based on the C/P considerations, we will choose this hotel again, when we visit Taipei next time. Now we also recommend to you. Hope you have a great experience in here.
