My relatives and i stayed in two quad sharing rooms, i was pleasantly surprised to learn that its actually two rooms that were opened up into one room, so it is quite spacious, with one king bed and one queen bed, more than enough for the four of us. With four persons sharing one room, it is more fun, that is, if u dont mind the 4 of you sharing one toilet :)
I read some negative reviews abt this hotel, like having a musty smell since they dont have non smoking floors, luckily we didnt experience it. And also the hotel being quite old and tired, well, it may not be new, but it is well maintained, so it wasnt a problem for me. One local travel agency told me their clients complained that San Want has small rooms, i think that is if you get the economy room, i saw in the pictures it indeed looked quite small and very basic.
As others have already said, their location is really great, with Uniqlo, Net, Esprit, Aldo, Zara and other shops just a few steps from the hotel, and lots of eateries nearby, the back alley, has small cozy cafes that lined the street, really so many choices, so little time to try everything. Not to mention the MRT right outside the hotel, you can easily explore taipei city.
Overall, i would say i am very satisfied with my stay at San Want, at 183 US dollars for the quad deluxe room, the price is a steal. It may not be a five star hotel, but i dont care, i cant afford a 5star hotel anyway, so i will definitely stay here again when i go back to taiwan.
