Not the best hotel in Taipei, but there are very few good hotels in the city and they charge a huge a mount. This is a boutique hotel outside the centre and not near any metro stations, so it is not so expensive.
The standard rooms are fairly small and rather olf fashioned, but clean. They have spartan facilities, and they remind guests that every item in the rom has a cost- even the slippers. There is a small gym. Little in the way of TV channels for westerners.
My room was overlookonh the main road- and the windows are not double glazed, so fairly noisy.
It is not easy to find a hotel with even this average description in Taipei. So if you are on a budget this hotel shold be considered.
