“Good location&Good breakfast”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Stayed three days and found that being located so close to a MRT station in Taipei is one of the most important factor for tourists who use MRT frequently. Breakfast at this hotel might be the best among the hotels with the same stars.

This was our first trip to Taiwan. We couldn't have picked a better hotel for this price range. Being next to the Main Taipei train station was very convenient. We took the MRT to all the tourist spots. The staff are friendly, courteous. We left our bags with the concierge on the last day while we did some last minute shopping. Not a problem, he even asked if there were biscuits, computers in the bags and he stuck 'fragile' stickers on the bags. The breakfast buffet is nice too - I liked the rice porridge (congee) and noodles (soup). The noodles were cooked on the spot. There is the usual cereal, bread, fruit as well. Bathroom was spotless. Our view from the window wasn't great, which is fine as we weren't there for the view. There is an ice cream parlour in the hotel which was pretty good too.

The attention to detail in this hotel is first rate-they think of everything. You don't even need to pack your toothbrush! We loved the lounge on the 17th floor which was very tranquil. The gym was very good too. My daughter loved the Tiger!

We liked the view over the station from our room, which was always spotlessly clean, however, by far the highlight at this hotel are the wonderful and sincere people we met here. There was no exception, although my daughter loved the ladies in the breakfast room. The guest services Manager is a thoroughly decent fellow who helped us a lot.

I've stayed in many hotels throughout the world, but I have never experienced such fabulous and sincere people as I did here. I really did not want to leave. ..it felt like home.

Thank you so much everyone for making my daughters first trip to Taiwan so special!

Room Tip: Go on the HSR to Zuoying and walk around the Lotus lake

Good that the hotel is located very near Taipei Main Station M3 exit (but navigating in the main station can be a nightmare). A 7-11 is located nearby and you can also get some nice pineapple tarts just beside the hotel.

The staff are friendly and often greet us with warm welcome.

The breakfast is good. It will be even better to have different menu on perhaps alternate day. As we stayed for 3 nights, seeing the same spread of buffet for 3 consecutive days can be a bit repetitive.

However, one unhappy thing happened. After we returned back to the hotel on the third day, one side of a sock and one piece of undergarment were missing. We remembered placing it neatly in the room in the morning before we left but we couldn't find it at night. We did not make a report to the hotel as we were too tired after a long day trip and we were leaving the next day.

Minus one star for the missing items.

Hotel is next to main station; take M3 exit so you are next to the entrance. Also around 100m walking from the airport bus (hotel recommended the bus, cost 125, 55mins).

Super friendly and professional check in and bell personnel.

Room was good and lots of hot water in the shower. Wifi worked well. Cleaning staff very friendly.

Breakfast was mostly Chinese style – also basic Western items.

I wanted to do some sightseeing and spa treatments; Guest Relations Manager Mr. Gillen gave some fantastic tips; really enjoyed my treatments in two different spas (the other one picked up from the hotel) and NE Coast Tour.

This was my first time in Taiwan – but definitely not the last one. Super friendly people, great food and affordable prices. And yes, if you want to visit Taipei 101 – you can just go and have a coffee at Starbucks at 35th floor!
