“A disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We stayed here based on reviews however, we don't read Japanese so maybe we missed some of the details??

Upon arrival, check it was smooth. However, the pictures on Tripadvisor and the website are quite misleading. We had the smallest room which space is typically not an issue for us, however, this room was not only small (maybe 25 sq m?) but NO WINDOWS! We felt super claustrophobic!

The room was clean and the shower was great, so we were hoping that this would make up for the size of the room.

This was our first time to Taiwan as a get away because we have been living in China which is constantly loud and noisy. We wanted peace, relaxation, and rest. However we were rudely awakened at 3 a.m. by the sound of blasting karaoke coming from downstairs. When we spoke to the main desk, they said this is usual and it may last for a few hours. Even with ear plugs, nothing could stop the pounding beat and vibration that you could actually feel in your bed!!! So much for rest!! We didn't get any sleep at all.

The breakfast was sad. We are not super picky but it literally consisted of rice & miso soup, or eggs and toast and nothing else. The hotel is small and it is located on the 4th floor of a building.

Thankfully Eric at the main desk was a huge help to us. He transferred us to the Tokyo Hotel nearby, which please read my review for their hotel. Unless, you are a deep sleeper or plan to do karaoke at 3 a.m. we would not recommend this hotel.

この間、銀座ホテル一泊泊めてTiffanyさんっていう業務員がいました。思った前に私たちの必要を扱ってくれた。やさしくチェックインしてくれた上、ホテルのツアーをして近所の情報をいっぱい伝えて頂けました。妻と一緒にいて僕らの母国語は英語のなら英語の案内をいただけました。Tiffanyさんは英語も日本語も中国語もぺらぺらみたい。どこへ行ってもTiffanyさんがエレベーターを呼んで、タクシーの運転手に目的地を中国語で説明してくれた。部屋の雰囲気はよくてとても新しい感じでした。評価は非常によかった。

Recently, my wife and I stayed at the Ginza hotel for one night. We were coming back from Kenting national park, and the next day we would be getting on a plane to go back to Tokyo. Tiffany at the front desk was one of the most competent employees I have ever encountered at a hotel. Not only did she check us in efficiently, but she made pleasant small talk with us in English and gave us great information about the area. It seems that she's pretty near fluent in Japanese, English and Taiwanese/Chinese. She anticipated our every need, even going so far as to call the elevator for us and to explain where we were going to the cab driver. As for the rooms, they were clean and very new, much nicer than anywhere else we had stayed in Taiwan. I highly recommend this hotel and its staff for whatever reason you might be in Taipei.

Location is between z hongsan station n songlian station. Walking distance around 15-20 min from hotel to MRT station. U can have a famous noddles at night or supper just beside the hotel and this stalls operated business hour from 7pm to 5am. You hardly to find the hotel lobby because it is old building and u have to take lift to 4th floor. Room is small but clean due to just renovated. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast not much choice but it is suitable for me because the chef prepared Chinese style breakfast like home cook dish. Mostly Japanese tourist will choose the hotel at Zhongshan district for their accommodation. Overall the hotel is okay but only the distance to MRT station is my consideration.
