We went in August so paid full rate (approx. USD 130/night) for the extra large king size room (two double beds put together) on the top floor. Note: the reception told us that during off peak season, the room rate is discounted by 50%.
Upon entering I can tell from the smell that the room hasn't been stayed in for a while. We left the a/c on and cracked the window open a bit for the rest of the day. The smell didn't go away until the next morning. There were mildew stains on the a/c vent and there were visible paint job to cover up the mildew. The mirrors (in the bedroom and bathroom) have hand prints from left behind from either the previous customers or housekeeping.
The room has all the basic amenities: a small safe, toiletries, slippers, clean sheets, extra pillow. Nothing to gripe or wow about.
The location, like other reviewers mentioned, is centralized. Convenient to fast food (McDonald's few minutes away), Starbucks, and famous eateries (including a famous dumpling 公正包子 about 10 minutes walk away).
Breakfast is mostly traditional Taiwanese food, with congee, eggs, pickles, and vegetables in warmers. For "western" selection, there are bread and fresh fruits.
If you drive, note that the hotel doesn't have a parking garage. The hotel will recommend that you find street parking or the public lot across street, which the hotel provides 6 hours validated service per day.
