The room was well appointed; arrived from Taoyuan Airport after a flight from Chengdu, China; arrived close to midnight. I took a taxi and cost 1,165 NTD ($37.60 USD) at 31:1. The hotel does not look like the picture shown here. Initial appearance looked like a dumpy hotel, but once up to the third floor not the case. Very nice and clean. The hot spring tub hit the spot after a 3.5 hour flight and with an 11 hour flight coming up the day after arrival. The breakfast buffet was good with eggs and other items both Asian and Western. The next time here I will likely stay at another spa hotel the one I originally intended to stay at higher up the hill. This hotel is close to Xinbeitou Metro rail station a major plus; a McDonalds and Starbucks next door and a KFC across the street. A nice park is also directly across the street. The Taipei Metro Rail system offers low cost travel cards NTD 148 24 hour, 257 48 hour and 368 for 72 hours, unlimited travel a good deal ($4.77, $8.29 and $11.87 USD respectively) at 32:1 exchange rate.
