Reviewed March 9, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights with a 2 year old kid. We booked the executive room and stayed at level 11..a very big room,big bathroom..with low price..really worth it!eventhough it is just opposite the hospital but due to higher floor..we didn't really affected by the siren of the ambulance at night..the toiletries given was great!!its really worth the value that we pay..we will definitely stay here again next time...

My family stayed at the hotel from 17 to 22 Dec 2011.
The hotel is located minutes away from Shuanglian MRT and the bus stop of 5201 that we took from the airport,
The Shuanglian MRT is the starting point of underground street where you could visit in the event of wet wheather.
The rooms are clean and the front desk staff are helpful. The only issue is the hospital which is directly infront of the hotel. We stayed at 11th floor so that's not much disturbance.
Overall, I rate this hotel good and value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at higher floor.

I stayed at this hotel 3 times over the past few years. The reason i returned is because this hotel is about 5 mins walk from Shuanglian MRT station and a Evergreen Airport Shuttle Service bus stop from Taoyuan Airport. Good food around the vicinity, including a morning market.

The con of this hotel is that it is opposite a hospital, with the Emergency Department right in front of hotel entrance. No major disturbance though... The other cons are the hotel is a little run-down and the breakfast is terrible. But you can always find good local food few doors away.

Overall, rooms are clean, front desk polite, housekeeping staff are very friendly too.

Pretty small hotel but overall am satisfied with the hotel’s cleanliness, amenities and the front desk’s service. Location wise is quite convenient as Shuanglian MRT is just within short walking distance. In fact the MRT station itself is a strategic location which lies between Shilin Night market and Ximending. However, if you are a “light sleeper”, then I won’t recommend it to you! FYI, the Mackay Hospital(马偕医院) is just opposite to Shin Shih, the siren from ambulance could be disturbing at time when there is emergency case. .

After bad experience with other hotel nearby, we came across this hotel and went in to ask. They allowed us to view the room before check in. Finally stayed three nights. Friendly staffs.
Simple breakfast provided. Less than 100M from Shuanglian MRT station. Opposite is Mackay Hospital. Next few doors is convinience store and police station. Refer to our pictures for reference.

We stayed here and were very satisfied. We would stay again. The breakfast was repetitive and modest, but the location was great, an easy block from a metro stop. The room was large and comfortable, the bathroom was modern. There was someone on each shift who spoke some English, but be sure to get them to write where you want to go in Chinese, as many folks on the street (including taxi drivers) do not. We also liked the dumpling shop between the hotel and metro where you order by writing with a grease pencil on the menu. They did have one in English--so ask for it.

We thought we preordered a taxi from the airport through the hotel, but they had no record. (Not sure where the problem was.) There is an ATM at the airport right before passport control and we had cash, so we hailed our own with no problem.

Room Tip: go for the Executive upgrade--larger, has a window, and is on the quiet side

Value for money and convenient to public transport especially the MRT. Rooms are small but adequate for average sizes (I'm 1.68m tall) and shorter stays ( say up to five days?). Staff always helpful despite my very basic and poor Mandarin.
