...The hotel has a funky vibe. I love the colors used in the room, the decorations and the glass bathrooms. Tv comes with movie choices which is great. Free breakfast in the mornings is sufficient enough. Free internet at the lobby. Laundry service can.also be had. Really good deal for the price.

Love this hotel! The amenities provided are good and so is the modern room design. We are also loving the free self-service laundry room where washing powder is provided - good for those who are travelling for more than a week in the city. Breakfast though nothing to rave about it better than the traditional porridge spread some of the...

We've stayed in Forward Hotel for 5 nights this March. The location is pretty convenient with a 7-eleven and eateries nearby. The hotel is also of walking distance to Si Ping Street (small scale "night market").

We stayed at the Forward hotel in Feb 2012 for 4 nights. The booking form indicated "With Balcony", but we were not given a room with balcony. There wasn't any explanation given either. For the first few nights, we practically froze in the room as there were no heater available and the room temperature dipped to 15 Degrees Celsius. No...

I concur with all the post-2008 reviews. This is a nice modern hotel with all the conveniences a tourist would value. I had the corner twin which is quite spacious.

I stayed in this hotel several times while visiting Taipei, the most recent being 2 weeks ago in Dec. It's a nice little hotel with very decent rates. The rates are good enough that sometimes I just pay US $20 extra to upgrade to a bigger Deluxe room, which has more space and a balcony. But even the standard rooms...
