After a sojourn in Beitou we booked this hotel based on tripadvisor comments. The outlook and service are excellent. Great welcome, great service. We booked a room on the 7th floor. It was large but the bathroom. There was a front desk (large room), then the bathroom (so small) and the bedroom which was smaller that the office. It did not really matter as the bed was very good. View was just ok as we were facing some renovations.
About the bathroom, i wonder how a hotel of this standing could have such a small one. Very small bathtub, small area barely enough space for one. If there is one weak point, that is the one.
Breakfast was an excellent buffet with multiple choice.
The surrounding of the hotel is ok with many spas and massages around it. It is also 5 mns away from the bus terminal to the airport (45 mns by bus for 140 ntd against 1000 by taxi). Opposite to the hotel, there is a big empty park with so called some exhibitions with no interest unless you want to see all the Taiwenese inventions (tv/mobile/vaccum cleaner, washing machine, bikes and so on). About 20 mns walking, there is the national museum.
