Although I encountered a problem when I made my reservation which took me 2 days calling and emailing to solve the problem, Mr. Scott Sun has promised me to have a smooth check in upon my arrival. Arriving earlier than the regular check in time at around 11 am, I thought I was going to be told that the room was not ready. However, room is already ready! Room is very spacious and clean of course. There were welcome fruits but too bad I am very lazy to eat it.
It is not the most convenient location, however, taxi to the Taipei station is very cheap or we just walked 5 mins to the closest station. There is a very small local department store in front of the hotel.
The breakfast was also delicious and soooo many choices! My friend has coffee and the waitress just keep on refilling her cup of coffee which has milk in it when it is still half fulled.
We also tried the spa on our last night. It was fabulous. You had your own room for changing/steam shower/ bath/ massage. The staff was preparing the bath by the end of the massage but unfortunately the water was not hot enough for me. I wish she has asked me how I wanted it. At the end of the massage, they will serve some tea and some sweets/sandwiches which is very nice. I would definitely go back for the spa!
Just a question on the room type, seems like it is very difficult to find a twin bed room? I went through many different websites and only found 1 site that offers twin room...
