I stayed here for one night, the experience was great, the front desk lady was really friendly and helpful. the lady that drives the shuttle from MRT to the hotel was really nice as well. overall great experience
I came straight to the hotel after landing. It was in the morning but the check-in time is at 3.00pm and you do the early check in you’ll get charged. The staff suggested me to just drop my bag at the hotel first and come back for the check in later as I don’t wanna waste my sight seeing time. you can actually call the shuttle from the sushi shop by beitou train station when you arrived, but at the time I didn’t know, so I ended up walking up the hill to the hotel ( tbh if you take a walk with a min. of 26” suitcase it’ll will not be very pretty I can tell you). Over all I gave full score here
From 24 to 26 Nov I stayed in room 303, which was quite expensive at 410US$ for 2 nights in an area where besides the local hot springs there is not much to do. Not 4**** at all. My advice: if you wanna visit come with the red line metro to Beitou (transfer to pink line to Xinbeitou - 1 stop - and walk ~10min) and don’t book an overpriced hotel here! Just come from Taipei for an hour or so. The numbers: -Price/Quality: 2.5** of 5***** -Price: $$$$ of $$$$$ -Quality: 3*** of 5 -Service at Reception: 5***** of 5 -Airport pickup service: not available -Service Overall: 4**** of 5 -Services Offered: 3*** (pick up from Xinbeitou after calling hotel wait at Sushi Express (opposite hard to see)) -Wheelchair Accessible: 3*** (narrow paths there is an elevator) BUT room has stairs - 1-2 steps to room ans bathroom. Room The room is very outdated and show many signs of decay. The layout is weird and there are many short stairs. The bed is okay not super comfortable and the pillows had stains on them. The balcony has 2 weird Japanese like woven wicker chairs, which you cannot sit comfortably on, also it’s damp in there. Weird smell - moldy(?) damp. The closet is old with outdated wood and has few hangers and a safe which is easy to use. Some drawers. There is a coffee machine if you use it first time don’t inset a coffee-pad as you’ll waist it by the machine needing to clean itself. The water cooker operates to on via a push button on top! Not on the side very unusual. The green tea offered is strong let it seep just 1-2min. The bathroom has it’s own hot spring tub which is nice, but during the day the big windows don’t provide any privacy... the blind must be closed all time. Tub looks not clean due to discoloring of tile kitting. Tiles look old. To note: -Make sure the plug is fitted well, it comes lose easily. -missing a good head rest to relax -no towel rack in bathroom it’s in the hallway = inconvenient -sitting place is small if you’re >1.80m -door to shower and toilet is a sliding door that means when you close the shower you watch into the toilet automatically -if you want to make a steam-room in the shower the next person cannot go to bathroom as door is open... -Sitting on the toilet you can be seen from outside (large windows) -if you don’t towel well whole floor will be wet... All in all a bit disappointed with the overpriced overrated hotel... Breakfast This too was disappointing and when we came at 09:00 most food was already gone even though the “buffet” is open till 10:00am. All looks bit second rate food, not well presented for a claimed 4**** hotel limited choices too. My advice see above just come for a day! If you want to stay here better hotels cost even more >600 US$ not worth it. …
We stay here for a night. When we get into the room, we can smell the toilet. There is stain of urine the bottom side of the sitting board. Very disgusting. We have to open the window whole night so that the smell is not so obvious. I suggest the manager to look into the cleanliness issue of the room.
2nd time staying at this hotel. It is a distance if you are walking in, definitely recommend taking a taxi, which makes this place a gem hidden from all the buzz and noise! Cosy and well furnished rooms, Hot shower, separate cubicle for toilet bowl. Personal in room hot spring which is an added advantage as you can have privacy. Super romantic for couples! The breakfast is my favourite as they had a wide spread including waffles!! which is a rare sight and selections of tea... always feel so relaxed after my staying here. Will recommend this to anyone coming to Beitou and will return without a doubt!
