“San Want Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We stayed in Room 826 for 5 days. I thought we booked a family room but it turns out only to be a queen bed and a double bed. The room was okay, less spacious than it appeared in the photo. But the staff were very courteous and helpful and you absolutely cannot beat the location. There are so many eateries and shops in the neighborhood. Deng Tai Fung is around the corner. The hotel seriously needs a face lift. The breakfast buffet is adequate but after 2 days, we start getting our morning bread " fix " from the hotel's bakery.

Very nice hotel, not the most modern but very nice for the price. Staff was always very polite and helpful. Breakfast buffet was nice, and included in the rate of the room. Located near many shops, very convenient. Starbucks accross just in case.

Probably thinking my rating is a but harsh but it's influenced by the fact that the hotel needs a facelift. It's acceptable in its present condition, my point is that they could do better.

Service is acceptable although trying to grab the attention of the staff at breakfast involves mind games and a need to waive endlessly, an no I wasn't wearing my Invisible Cape!

Location is fine and prices reflect good value for money

Happy I recommend but I leave the review as feedback for the owners that its time to make an investment!

I have traveled Taipei recently for an Auto show and stayed in this hotel.
The hotel is really very well located in the Taipei city which makes it convenient to move around within the city.
Nice hotel with well placed rooms.
The food in their restaurants are served to your taste though I had only breakfast there.
Overall its been good experience staying with them.

The hotel is, as other reviewers say, in a great location in the centre of the city on a major shopping street. It is also close to a Starbucks, Mcdonalds, iPhone store and next to a Metro station.

The hotel is dated and could do with a refurbishment. When you get to the lobby you are directed to the 4th floor where reception is located. The room I had was average.The room overlooked the main shopping street and I was kept wake at night by the noise and then woken at 4am by druken people in the street shouting and singing.

There is a lack of westerns TV channels. Clearly it does cater more for locals and I saw few westerners in the hotel.

Quality is average for the price. You can get better quality at a cheaper price elsewhere in the city. If you do not need to be in the centre I would suggest you avoid this hotel. I certainly will not return.

Room Tip: Insist on a room at the back of the hotel to avoid the noise of traffic and drunks on ther main road...

We stayed here for our Taiwan trip. The hotel is a bit dated but still one of the best maintained in Taipei. The location was perfect as just below is the Metro station and just across and on the sides are some quality brand shops. Also nearby are food shops like the famous Din Tai Fung. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast is good as well. The staff is very helpful and will assist you with almost anything. Overall and so far, this is my favorite hotel in Taipei.

Room Tip: get a room facing the front for a good view of Zhongziao st.
