“Nice hotel with clean rooms and kind staff. Location is a bit off”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We chose this hotel for its price - we paid around $85 CAD per night. We stayed here for 3 nights.

Pros:
Friendly staff - they spoke English (or at least they tried to), the service was good. They have umbrellas for guests to use in case it rains. They aren't that strong and mine flipped upside down a few times during a rain storm. But it's free, so nothing to complain about.

Breakfast included (we didn't upgrade or anything so free breakfast is always nice). The food was not amazing but they do have a mix of western (eggs, ham, sausages, toast) and oriental (dumplings, buns, congee) foods as well as fruits, cereal, and a coffee machine.

Rooms are well kept and clean. It's very spacious and the washrooms is clean as well. It includes a shower and a bath tub (we used it for foot baths after walking around Taipei the entire day). They provide complimentary bottles of water every day which was nice that we took with us during the day.

Cons:
The only thing semi-negative is the location of this hotel, it's about 10 min walk to the closest subway station. Finding this hotel is a little difficult, but after 2 times, we got the hang of it.

If you don't mind the walk, it's a very nice hotel and the price is quite reasonable for its quality of the rooms and the service the staff provides.

The Beauty hotel Hsuanmei is a good budget stay. Its a 40min Drive from the airport though. It will cost $1200 from the Tayoan International airport.

The hotel offers free wifi in every room and you can connect multiple devices at once. I believe that every room as a modem each.

Nice spacious bathroom with a tub/spa. Didn't get to use it though. There is a laundry center in the hotel where you only pay $50 to run the washing machine and another $50 for the dryer. A very cheap way of cleaning clothes. The hotel does offer its own laundry service as well if you choose.

The nearest MRT is a bit of walk. If you have a good sense of direction it will be easy. Taipei offers free WiFi in the city anyway and easy to use Google maps to find your way around from hotel if you have a smart phone. Don't need roaming services or local sim card. Just free WiFi service by the government. I had 1 taxi driver pretend he didn't know where the hotel was as he didn't want a short fare.

The only issue I had was the fridge turns off every time you leave the room when you remove the key card. Its a little annoying as I left 2 beer bottles and coke in the fridge. After long day of zoo and gondola I can back to warm beer.

You can hear noise from the elevated freeway next to the hotel and carpark under the freeway. The rooms are not sound proof. Its not very noisy but expect some noise.
The bed is very hard and I don't like hard backs. But I woke up with my back feeling fetter somehow.

Friendly staff. They helped arrange taxi at 5am to go to airport and they warned me cost to airport via taxi. I already knew but great service in letting people know. 7 Eleven is only 5min walk as well. Banks 5min as well.

In all a very good stay. I will recommend this place.

Room Tip: Use free WiFi through out the hotel. Taipei free WiFi available out the hotel easily. just ask at r...

I choose this hotel after reading all the reviews and agree with most of the reviews. We stayed on the sixth floor. We have only 3 minor issues with the room 1) There is no window, only a fake one that separate the corridor and our room. Can hear people talking outside through the fake window. Can't see the outside 2) Inadequate lighting. There are many lights in the room, all controlled using the centralised control panel but it is not bright enough. 3) There is a funny "onion" smell after using the bathroom. I am not sure whether that is the smell of tap water in Taipei. We like the bathroom. It is clean, modern and the big Jacuzzi is also very well maintain. The shower panel is also nice. Breakfast - a good spread and they do replenish the food often till they close but the food is not fantastic. If you want good food, forget about the breakfast and eat at those road side stall, café and restaurant nearby. There are plenty of F&B outlet near the hotel. There is also a shop selling baked sweet potatoes across the street.

We expected to be staying in a basic "no frills" hotel and were delightfully surprised. The room, while small (you ARE staying in the middle of Taipei), was just what we needed- incredibly clean, wifi accessibility, comfortable/cute accomodations- helpful staff that answered all of our questions and brought us anything we needed. The breakfast caters to the Asian clientele but still has eggs, bacon, waffles,fruit. The walk to the MTR station is not short but if you're used to walking around Asia it's not that significant. We got directions to take a bus from the airport bus station (#5201) to the evergreen hotel nearby and paid $5USD/person each way made it easy to save. There are cute restaturants and shops nearby as well. Do be warned if you (or your children) are flipping through the channels there are some ADULT channels which were not blocked. We would recommend this hotel to friends but warn them about the TV.

Room Tip: If you're on the 2nd floor you do hear a good deal of traffic in the mornings and daytime. In pa...

Staying there for two nights. Our family occupied two rooms however the rooms are very full and we are split into two floors - but it is same corner and we can reached to the other room through a staircase. Room was clean and tidy (although it is small). Shower is excellent as well.

My wife and I had an enjoyable time at this hotel - it was well-placed for exploring the city of Taipei, reasonably priced, had a nice breakfast, and free internet computers (which they really need to have the antivirus software updated.) The hotel itself is in a charming part of the city.
