The hotel is located sort of half way between two MRT stations (Formosa and Central Park). So it's a few minutes walk either way. We stayed at the Rooftop Suite, and it was spacious enough to accommodate 5 of us. (You have to walk up a flight of stairs to the top floor as the elevator does not reach the top) The single beds were a bit hard, but the two king size beds were very comfortable. The room has a little kitchen area (no stove top etc - just a kettle). It was stocked with cups but it would be nice if the hotel would also stock it with some plates and cutlery.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and was able to communicate in English with me. Make sure you get the walking map provided by the hotel, as it has some great eateries and sighseeing ideas on it. Breakfast was adequate, however the washroom at the breakfast area was a bit strange, as it really is only one stall having both urinal and toilet inside.
Overall it was a nice stay.

- With a natural and seemingly accidental presence The Icon Hotel is situated in a corner of the popular XinJueJiang Shopping District. Adjacent to the ever so elegant Central Park metro station, and across the tree-canopy-clad Minsheng Rd., is a simply classic structure full of creative twists.We chose white as our foundation and embellished it with vibrant brushstrokes. Through the creative efforts of numerous artists from around the globe, beyond language and cultural barriers, boundless imagination is materialized in 36 dimensions.Humorous originality frolics in every corner of the hotel as we hope that at every turn of the corner you might let out an occasional chuckle. The Icon is creativity, it is art, and it is a lifestyle. With a humble and low-key attitude we have shattered the traditional impressions of motels, inns, and hotels. Here at The Icon we have orchestrated a visually and aesthetically pleasing feast.The Icon creativityUniquely craftedWe are The Icon! ... more less
