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. My last gripe though - despite labelling the restaurant as...

The hotel is right in the center of the ximending night market. Wonderful location, to shop, and eat, subway just 3-5min walk. Need to share elevator with shopping guest, and from afternoon to night time taxi can't drive, and park in front of the hotel. So the taxi will need to park at the Main Street about 200m away, but...

Stayed 4 nights. This is my third visit. This round I requested for a room with window facing outside. There are rooms facing inwards which very close to opposite room windows. Staffs are friendly, breakfast is still as good. Like the ginger shower gel. Overall a good stay!

Actually a friend of ours recommended this hotel and it was a great choice for us. The hotel was on top of a department store, with a good restaurant. The rooms are simple and clean, but comfortable. There was a laundrymat on one of the floors that you can wash your clothes and dry them. However that was always quite...

Great hotel in the bustling Ximending district. Right out the door you have a lot of unique and International retailers, food stands and restaurants. The hotel is definitely above a Best Western or Comfort Inn and for the price a great value. As long as your expectations are not for a luxury 5 star Grand hotel you will be happy....
