Its a nice hotel with not much to complain about. The hotel is in the Tuntex Sky-Tower which is pretty cool on its own merrit. If you visit the area and dont stay here you may want to come to the tower anyhow. The rooms were quite large, clean, and well appointed. The beds are a little hard but thats just the norm in this part of the world. Its not a brand new hotel however I thought the accomodations were nice enough. The hotel does offer a variety of food outlets and the food was pretty good by local standards. I stayed here for work and it was very convenient. For comparison, I stayed at the "Single Inn" - which is a completely different place, and I also stayed at the "Hotel Kingdom". The splendor is significantly nicer than the hotel Kingdom however Hotel Kingdom is in a better location for walking. Keep in mind you can take a cab anywhere in the area for about 200 NT (7 US dollars) so cabing it isn't expensive however not particularly convenient. The splendor is a fair bit more expensive but I still consider realtively cheap. If you want to be in the iddle of the action, I would opt for Hotel Kingdom however The Splendor is by far the nicer hotel.
