I often come to this hotel, but had never written a review on it.
The deluxe room is spacious and well organized. internet is fast and works well, although recently they have introduced a password, which was not necessary before and slows down the process of logging in. Breakfast is very good quality and also a good variety and choice. Room and laundry service were good. The staff at reception and concierge did not speak too much english and was less helpful than usual. A little bit far from the underground.

Very boutique kind of hotel. It is small and personable – but perfect and confortable. Nice bed for an American. The rooms I had was a standard room. Not big like other reviewers mentioned. However, it was FINE. The hotel is really charming. There is a business center on the 7th floor that is very nice. Don’t miss the rooftop. It is a well done garden with a small gym in the middle. The gym is all glass. Really nice up there.
Breakfast was did not have huge variety – but they had good quality, good pastries. Very satisfied.

Staff at this hotel is very helpful. This is something I find at all hotels in Taiwan. This staff was young and excited to interact and help (in a good way).

Stayed here for 5 days while down in Taipei for a convention. The entrance is not impressive, but everything else is great. All the staff is extremely helpful and most speak good English. The rooms are huge (a full bedroom and a separate living room with a full desk). The room decor is a bit old fashioned but in excellent shape. Wifi was spotty but wired connection was great. Breakfast was good, the gym on the terrace had 2 treadmills and some exercise machines, with an awesome rooftop view.
The location is very centric, less than 10 minutes away from MRT stations, 4 blocks away from a night market, and with restaurants and shops all around.
They have a shuttle service that can take you to the convention center in the morning or some tourist spots in the afternoon.
Overall, I really recommend this hotel.

Positives: Great location with restaurants, spas, night market, temple, and transit nearby. Superb staff service (thank you for your help!). Nice looking hotel that can host events, a nice breakfast at the restaurant, and a rooftop that features a gym and a garden.

But an average decor room holds this rating back. Oh, and a view of the hideous buildings behind -- which deserve a spot on Taipei's list of "things to tear down."

Hotel though a bit of the way, but nonetheless, easily accessible to other areas through the ubiquitous taxis around.

Staff are extremely nice and polite.

Lobby, nice and well furnished. Breakfast area, nice and cosy. Food is so so.

Lift small but grand. Corridor extremely beautiful with sitting area on every floor. Gym a tad small, and not much to standard though.

Room is nicely furnished and comfortable. Bathroom cleanliness acceptable.

Will come again.

Was in Taipei for a business trip and Family vacation. Booked 2 conjoining rooms and the rooms are way bigger than expected. All at a pretty good price.
Rooms are clean and tidy.
Staff are very helpful and speaks both Chinese and English.
