“Clean / Functional Hotel”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The hotel is located in the CBD area of Taipei. As it is in the CBD - the shopping mall ard the place opens after 11am. Nothing to do before that. Great hotel for travelers on business trip. There is a shopping Mall and Train station beside the Hotel. The exterior of the hotel looks old but the rooms seems to have been refurbished and were in excellent condition. The traditional Lock and Key system is still in place. Overall a very enjoyable experience. The Hotel also has a good selection of restaurants. Breakfast was average with more traditional Taiwanese food than Western style breakfast.

We had a pleasant stay at the Hotel for two nights. Brother Hotel Taipei is very conveniently located close to public transportation services and has many restaurants close by. The rooms were clean and the service staff was good. Our requests were handled promptly. An upgrade or refurbishing would help, as the hotel appears old. Also, the room size was small. Overall we were happy with our stay, staff and service. I would definitely recommend it someone looking for a peaceful and convenient stay in the city. But not a vacation property.

Room Tip: Take higher floors with a view to Taipei 101.

I arranged for pick up by the hotel car...prompt and attentive (old van but ran well)... check in was smooth with no issues. room was neat and clean - slightly small but with all the basic amenities.
The best part was the location - next to the MRT stop - very closely located were all the fat food options you could ask for along with a 24 hr ATM's and 24/7's. Breakfast was basically a wide eastern spread with an assortment of western dishes.. overall very convenient for work..good value for money.

Stayed at this hotel because it is close to my client's office. He recommended it to me.

- GREAT location. Very easy and quick to get to everywhere!
- Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on this.
- Staff were friendly and quick.
- Very easy and quick to get a taxi too (taxis lining up outside hotel)
- Tried the Japanese restaurant there. Nice!
- Bed was comfortable and the internet was fine. Rooms aren't modern but had everything someone needs for business (internet, location, decent shower...)

Would come here again as it is very convenient.

Brother hotel is situated in the heat of Taipei with excellent connections with trains ( MRT station next to it) , buses and taxis. Staff is extremely helpfull and friendly and service was fast and friendly. Stayed for 5 nights on business. Breakfast buffet is excellent with a good mix of western and asian food. Everything tidy and clean. If any advice needed just ask staff or reception and they will help you sort things out.
A lot of shops in the vicinity: 7/11, familymart, etc, including an Irish style pub, called "Brass Monkey" aswell as "Hooters"
If I come back I would stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel in the beginning of June for my husband to attend CompuTex. We travelled with our 11month old baby girl and I can truly say that the hotel catered to our every need. Upon entering the well sized room, the babycot as well as a baby bath was already put down with extra towels and free bottled water every day.
There is also a stocked minibar fridge to keep your water cold or to keep some foodstuff for baby fresh. The room are cleaned daily. The staff at reception was excellent and always very friendly and could communicate well in English. The hotel offers competitive rates for exchanging money. We ate breakfast at the hotel once and can comment that it is a bit pricey and that there are two bakeries in the vicinity with a huge variety of baked goods to grab for breakfast.
The hotel is located directly next to the MRT station where you can access most of Taipei - I bought a 3 day pass (baby and stoller free). Taipei is very kid- and stoller friendly and I never had any problem getting around (tip - take a card from the hotel to show when you travel by taxi) It is challanging to find kid friendly food but luckly she ate most of what we had (take a few jars of baby food and porridge for in case - I bought joghurt from the 711 (across the road) and nappies from Wellcome store a few blocks away (take some time to look at the interesting food stuff on sale in the store)
Fantastic shopping - 2 x Sogo stores 1 stop on MRT away from hotel, Breeze Centre about 5 min walk, Taipei 101 (take MRT to City Hall), Ximending (MRT)
I also did a half day city tour - booked at reception as well as the Moakong Gondola (brown line MRT)
On a friend's advise I had a hot chocolate at the W Hotel on the 31st Floor - a must do!
Taipei is a truly amazing city with very friendly people. If you are travelling with kids, do not despair, just make sure you wear sunscreen and have a hat and umbrella handy at all times. I will find it hard to stay at any other hotel than the Brother Hotel - a fantastic hotel, location and staff.
If you need more information on Taipei - visit http://weviewtaiwan.com/ - a very informative site about this wonderful country.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 9th floor - 922 - view was onto MRT station.

The Brother Hotel is right in the heart of Taipei on a busy main road, next to the MRT station, and shops. I stayed 2 nights on business, and found the location really good, especially for everything nearby, I only had breakfast at the Hotel which was a buffet, and ate out nearby in the evenings. There is a Subway and McDonalds real close, and travelling around is easy on the train, it is literally a few yards from the hotel. The room was adequate and the facilities are fine, it makes a good choice for business people, who need a no nonsense reasonable place to stay. The Hotel offers airport transfers too. I would recommend this hotel as I found the staff and service to be excellent and that is what you need after a 12 hour flight!
