I went on a leisure trip to Taipei in Feb 2012.
The hotel room was nice and big and comfortable. The staff were very polite and pleasant. There was a very wide selection of food at breakfast.
The heated outdoor swimming pool at the top floor had a very good view of the city. You get a view of Taipei 101 from here too!
But the hotel is quite a distance from the nearest subway station. And the station Liuzhangli is not on the same subway line as the touristy places. And the interchange stations can involve long walks within the station.
I would definitely stay here again if I am looking to stay put in the hotel. But if I am looking to do a lot of sightseeing in the city, I would probably look for another hotel.
