There is no words to describe such a terrible place to stay. The staff very kind, but they look all of them without experience, to deal with business people. Internet, if available, does not work, cable or wifi. Food there is no words, for the poor quality at breakfast, and if you wis to be sick try a simple burger at evening in the restaurant. Room are not clean, and extra small bathroom.

Room Tip: I do not believe, they have good rooms.

stayed in this hotel 4 or 5 times since they were opened 6 or 7 years ago. it's getting a bit old and worn out when i visit last month during new year eve.
it always fully-booked during any festivals, try to book 2 months in-advance.

it's location are superb, situated in the centre of taipei city, very close to 101 bldg and it's absolutely a spot to watch firework during new year count down.

**free wi-fi are only available at their lobby**

MRT station is just round the corner within 1 min walking distance.
attractions are just few mins away from hotel by MRT
superior single are the smallest room, superior twin are far bigger in this hotel :-)
buffet breadfast is just fair and dining there is not an option.
many good restaurants around the block are excellent.

It's rather like the usual business hotel. Clean and compact room. One thing to note: you must hang a sign outisde when you leave to indicate you want the room cleaned. Otherwise, they won't. This is different from other hotels I've stayed. I thought it's a given that they will clean the room unless you put out a sign 'do not disturb'. The breakfast spread was wonderful and we enjoyed the great variety very much. Since it's near the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall Station, it's very convenient. Recommended.

The great thing with this hotel is its price. It is close enough to the city center (Taipei 101 area), but you can still get cheap enough rates and won't feel ripped off. Free wireless in the lobby, room service food that is reasonably priced, and not very expensive add-ons like Internet and crazy-abundant breakfast.

Although there is an effort to make the hotel really great, you will soon realize that it is still a cheap-as-possible business hotel. The carpets, even for the junior room floor is old and faded, maybe because the shower curtain doesn't work as well and the water does not drain well, splashing quite a bit into the carpet in the room. Good comments have been made about the pretty bathtub but I think it's actually too small.

Express pressing and/or dry-cleaning is not available (they probably send laundry outside because you get your laundry back only after a day or so) but it's good the have an iron in the room. The bed is good but the sheets feel they've seen better days. The room I was in also had floor to ceiling windows and was no tinted so you have to really close the curtains to avoid bright direct sunlight (a good thing for most people anyway).

Checkin process is really efficient, although staff English skills might not be as good as you want it to be.

I recommend this hotel if you just want a decent place to sleep in while on business travel, especially if you are out most of the day for meetings anyway.

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip in October 2011. Rooms are very stylish, at good value and only about a 5 minute cab ride from 101 or the world trade centre area. Within 15 minutes walk to great shopping malls as well.

One station away to Taipei 101 and Opp. side One station away to East side underground shopping. The hotel staff are very helpful and polite. The room is big and clean.
