This hotel is well located but it's quite old. It needs some renovations. The room is large but without window and the light was poor. We spent 2 nights but it doesn't worth what we paid (7900 TWD). The breakfast is outside in a estaurant where you can't chose. There is only one simple choice of breakfast for all. I... More

The hotel is centrally located close to Taipei Main Station. The staff were very pleasant and speak reasonable English. The room is of a reasonable size, clean with tea and coffee provided. There is also a reliable wifi in the room. There are quite a few small restaurants close to the hotel. A 15 minute walk straight down the stree... More

Its an old hotel with 70s/80s décor. Nevertheless the maintenance is good and general area is clean. The room is of good size so no need to cramp up. While some people may not like old fashion, we are ok as long as it is clean and well maintained. Service from front desk is good, however if you speak Mandarin... More

The main reason I chose this hotel was because it's walkable from the HSR station. We were checked in quickly with no fuss and I was pleasantly surprised at the size of our room. The in room WiFi works pretty well. There's nothing really flash of memorable about this hotel but for a stopover it does the job. Check out... More

I think this hotel is a solid 3 star but had the potential to be 4 star with a few improvements. The front desk is just that. .a standard office desk instead of the usual shiny counter you'd expect in any hotel. The staff really have average English and are a bit nervous dealing with guests. The corridors look quite... More

The room is big but the whole hotel looked old. When I arrived there is no one to assist to open the main door (non automatic type). The toilet flushing is not working well and have to call for the maintenance. The price is also consider on the high side as this is the only hotel which does not include... More

The building and rooms show its age but cleanliness is not jeopardized. It may not be spotless but rooms and bathrooms are comfortable enough. Basic amenities in the room are available like TV, hairdryer, AC, toiletries and other hotel compendiums. There is no breakfast cafe and no room service. Nevertheless, decent bakeries and many convenience stores like 7-11 and Family... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Getting around in Taipei is really cheap, so it was no problem that it was so far from the main Taipei station (~20min walk). It is about 10min walking distance from the Shandao station, which is one stop from the main Taipei station. You can get there for about $20 NT (less than... More
