This hotel is in the centre of a lively shopping and entertainment district in Taipei. So if you want to walk to this type of scene you might stay here. The room was clean and functional but not particularly "comfortable" . Room had a great shower and a preposterously large bed. Staff at check in a little surly (indeed only...

酒店位於 十分熱鬧的市中心,十分方便。 check in 在 5/F, 酒店 走 hip hop 路線,員工全是年青人。都很 Nice ! 房間 spacious , 廁所 和 淋浴 分開, 中間是洗手盆。 早餐 也不錯 , 有各種台灣美食。 唯 一 注意 lift 是 open to public , 1/F -4/F 是商場。 沒有 separate lift 到客房, 但要 access card 才能 到 客房 Floor.

Really enjoyed my stay here with my husband during our honeymoon.The location can't be beat - right in the center of Ximending, a very happening part of Taipei, and yet the hotel was very quiet and could hardly hear the street noise. The rooms have a modern, fun feel about them - industrial chic while remaining cosy - and spacious...

We arrived in TPE very early and they let us leave our luggage and asked us to come back at ~3pm when check in began. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a loft room when we booked an XL twin room-the room was nicely sized for 2 travelers with a full living room for us to sit and...

The location was great and right smack in the hustle and bustle of Ximending. Just walk downstairs and you are right where all you need to be, with endless food options, even late at night! Room itself was pleasant - clean and spacious. It was bigger than what I'd expected for a hotel room in the city area. I slept...

Good location in Taipei. Very convenient, near subway, many shops and restaurants nearby. The decoration is simple, stylish. Room size is good, spacious. Window is small and my room is facing internal light well and therefore don't know the weather outside. Room is clean. But the housekeeper didn't clean the cup even we used it for drinking coffee.

The hotel is strategically located in Ximending, one of Taipei's shopping districts. The room was decent but they should consider installing a rotating arm for the television. There were complimentary tidbits and "marble" soft drinks which was a wonderful touch. Staff were all very courteous and makes you feel welcome.
