“Typical Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Its located in quiet part of town but within walking distance (2 min slow walk) to MRT. Price is reasonable and it is clean.

Lobby and safe staff very well mannered (same can be said about all Taiwan's hospitality workers). Spoke reasonably good english.

Very safe to stay there.

Travel to Taiwan the last Five years, after arriving from a 15 hour flight this a great hotel to spend the night. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is good.
The location is near the subway and the main train station.

Do not judge this hotel from the outside, it obviously has to maintain the historical look which is a bit daunting when you arrive at 1.00am. Once inside it has everything you need and more. The staff were very helpful and friendly, also their English was good. The room was spotlessly clean with all the accessories and more. The location is a bit out of town but the MRT system is wonderful and so easy to use. We could go anywhere from the small station 8 minutes walk away. Highly recommended.

This is a standard hotel - nothing amazing but not terrible. It was clean, quiet and more than sufficed for what we needed. For the price in Taipei, I think it was a good deal. It was kind of dingy but nothing that was overly gross or anything. Just your standard crash hotel for a night in Taipei.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience for the multiple weeks that I've stayed here.

I came for the first time in May 2013 and stayed for an entire week. These people aim to make you a repeat customer. It's now May 2014 and I could have tried any other hotel in Taipei, but these people are wonderful characters and they will remember details about their customers i.e. interests etc. if you chat it up with them.

The front staff is as good as any of the top hotels in Europe and the Silicon Valley so I think it should be good enough for most new visitors. Give them a shot and check out their reviews on TripAdvisor.com where they have received multiple awards in Taiwan.

Talk is cheap. Life takes Nike (Just Do It). Try this place if you're in Taipei and I'm pretty sure you will not regret it.

Upon entering the hotel one will see its classic decor of chinese wooden sculptures and beautiful orchids. Reception staff are efficient and are patient in explaining directions to places of interest.
You may not know that there is actually a market nearby about 5 mins walk from the hotel. However, please note that certain stalls only operate on certain days. There is a convenience store directly beside the hotel which is fabulous, and there is a Wellcome Supermarket less than 10 mins walk away.

Upon taking the lift up to the rooms, I cannot help but exclaim that the lift carpeting needs to have a good washing or changing because it definitely smells. I can tell from the smells that you guys try to spray air fresheners but seriously, just please wash it because it looks dirty as well.

With regard to the rooms, they are comfortable and suitably sized. Air conditioning is good and may get slightly colder in the night. Anti-slip mats in the bathtub can afford to be cleaner.

Room was nice, big and clean.
Staff was friendly, breakfast ok also for westerners.
For us it was a bit far from the center, however close to the metro station. The night market seemed to be only for chinese tourists, but fine to go there if you are ok with limited communication.
