“Great hotel, great staff, great amenties”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

What can I say about this hotel?!?! The location is good as it is near one of the known Night Markets in Taipei. Although they dont serve breakfast, they do serve toast and cereal with milk in the morning. Just dont go too late as they do run out of cereal and milk. They have snacks, juices, water and candy and crackers complimentary which is a big plus.

The staff is very helpful and friendly. They also have complimentary 24 hr self service laundry service as well.

We got in early and they were able to hold our luggage while we were site seeing. When we returned, we found out they upgraded our room as well.

Overall a fantastic experience and highly recommend them. The entrance of the hotel def did not make it seem as though it is a hotel as it kind of looked like it would be going to an office building but the place looked modern and got compliments from friends that came to visit as well.

The beds were great, they were Serta beds, very comfortable and the pillows were great as well.

When I first email Via Loft to inquire on available rooms, I was informed that booking was not opened yet. I shared that I was worried about available rooms as it was china golden week, for the period that I was looking to make reservation for. Ricky, who was replying email then, promised to keep me updated as soon as reservations open up. AND HE DID! that already is a 5 star.

The hotel is located on i think 2 or 3 floors of a residential/ commerical building. Newly renovated, hence I felt rather fortunate to enjoy new facilities at relatively low prices. Although it's some distance away from the usual tourist hot spots, the neighbourhood has a nice local feel. 2 convenience stores within 2 minutes, a small local market and eateries on the opposite side, and along the way to the mrt station. Shuangliang MRT is 7-10minutes away.

I cant say this enough.... I LOVE the self service pantry! While there's no "international breakfast", there's the usual toast, cereal, milk, coffee and tea. And then there's the candies, biscuits. junk food, soft drinks and non-carbonated drinks. ^^
Good wifi connection throughout the property. Complimentary use of washing machine and dryer on the second floor, complete with washing powder.

I think some TA-ers have commented on mattress... and i'm gona comment on hairdryer! My major peeve, even with some international hotel chains, is crappy hair dryer that has ONLY one button no settings wat so ever, ie to say useless. I am beginning to think that the person who made all these purchase decisions in this hotel is prob a woman, with long hair to boot. heh heh.

Me and my wife were struggle to get a place during the peak season in August 2013, when Taiwan and China were having their summer school holidays. Lucky enough Via Hotel Loft have just opened (parts of the hotel are still under renovation) with not many people knows about it and we found it on hotels.com. Brand new and staff are very friendly. We obtained so much travel info from chatting with them and even borrow trolley from them to transport y parcel to a nearby post office. Rooms are super clean and modern and comfy bed. Free wifi but no breakie however you can grab a free bite or drink from the self service pantry. The pantry can in fact feed your family if you don't mind up noddle, biscuit and chips.

The hotel is about 10mins walk from Shuang Lian MRT station, and 5mins away from Mackay Memorial Hospital. 7 eleven is on the ground floor and on the same road about 6 or 7 shops to the direction of MRT station is one of the best massage parlour we ever visited. It runs by blind people and the price and service was excellent. Just opposite the hotel behind a row of shop houses is the coin operated laundry called Chai Yun. In short great location.

Room Tip: In Taiwan, if you choose for a B&B, small hotel or boutique hotel, always looks at the style of...

Via Hotel Loft is a brand new hotel, it just opened a few months. However, some area still under renovation.

The hotel is into the 2nd and 3rd floor of commercial building. The reception is on 2nd floor which is small but provided amenity environment. The snack and soft break are free for the guest. All staffs are very helpful and some of staffs proficient in multilingual, such as cantonese and Japanese.

Each room in modern design and equipped with 42-inch LED TVs with cable channels, wireless high-speed Internet access, slippers and hair dryer etc. Very comfortable bed which is the famous world brand of Sealy Beauty Foam Mattresses.

I had initially wanted the one at xi men ding area, however due to some upgrading works, we are shifted to this area. I had taken the twin room. It was quite spacious as we total had 3 luggage and still have rooms to walk around. The staff were very friendly. They will help you to located those places that you wanted to go Or the things you wanted to buy. Just that there are also some upgrading works at the same building hence could be a bit noisy. And also the room sound proof were not that good too. Can heard the doors opening and closing at the corridors. They had a rest lounge where they will supply food / snacks and drink 24hr which I like it. Over all a good stay I had.
