This hotel happily surprised, considering it is classified as a 3 star hotel.
It is in a good location. just off the main street and away from the noise (I was on the third floor and had no noise), and a couple of minutes away from Zhongxiao Dunhua metro and one minute away from a convenience store.
The wifi reception was strong.
The daytime reception staff were very helpful and very willing to assist guests with ideas as to where to visit and tips as to how to reach these places.
After reading previous comments I can advise that my room (a twin) and bathroom were not small in area. The interior was clean, reflecting the renovations that others have commented on as well.
The breakfast was adequate including items like bread, jam, coffee, orange juice, two types of meat (eg sausages, meat slices, bacon etc), broccoli and a variety of Chinese buns.
The areas I experienced which were not brilliant were a low bathroom ceiling and a sliding bathroom door (but then this is a good space saving initiative). Also, whilst the reception staff during the day were fantastic, if you require assistance from the night reception staff then bring your Mandarin / English dictionary with you.
Finally, someone commented on the security guard on the ground floor. True, the guard exists, but don't expect him to be awake the whole time of his shift!
That said, would I stay there again? Definitely!
