San Want Hotel : The best location. Shopping street in front of hotel, Family Mart & 7-11 just couple of minutes, all u can find. MRT Zhongxioa Danhua Exit 4 just in front of the hotel, nothing easier. Staffs are very friendly and very helpful and efficient, they reply to anything you need. We stayed at executive room. Nespresso coffee... More

My wife and I recently visited Taipei for the first time with my mum and we were looking for a hotel which was centrally located and not too expensive. We ended up choosing a triple room for 5 nights at the San Want Hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, the location is fantastic and very convenient for exploring the... More

location is excellent at zhongxiao dunhua station, plenty of choices to eat behind the hotel and in front. The hongkong dimsum next to the hotel opens 24hrs, the bakery at the hotel makes excellent bread and pastries. The staff are warm and friendly from bellboy to counter staff. The room we chose for 2 adults and 3 kids was big... More

The only saving grace for this hotel is the location. Other than that, they have a very poor service. I suggest they train their staff well on how to handle customers. Maybe they don't mean to be rude, but that's how it appers to me. Someone called me around 9:45pm to tell me....BIG SURPRISE... my room rate has increased for... More

I've been to Taipei a number of times, but this was my first visit staying at the San Want Hotel. Overall, I'd say the hotel was decently nice. The decor is a bit worn and I wouldn't go so far as to say the hotel is a luxury spot - I'd compare the accommodation to a Hampton Inn. The breakfast,... More

I love the location of this hotel. Shopping and MTR are just a step out from the hotel. There is a great patisserie in this hotel, well recommended. I've been staying in this hotel since before, but the decor inside the room have start to age. Here are some points that needs the hotel TLC... - refresh of interior -... More

The hotel seems to be a very traditional one but clean. The location is in the middle of Taipei city where high street shopping brands,restaurants, bars and cafes are situated on every corners of the streets. Deluxe rooms are in average size, bathroom traditional style. Acceptable international breakfast buffet start 6.30-9.30 am. but very bad taste coffee though. Staffs are... More

Location: Shopping for days! Super cool area with shops and malls and little street alleys full of places to buy whatever you could possibly want or need. NOTE: stores don't open until 10:30, 11:00. Family mart and 7-11 are very close. Hotel: Reviews say it's a bit dated... I kind of felt that it was apart of the decor design.... More

The San Want hotel is in a fantastic location - steps from the metro, great shopping and restaurants. The staff are friendly and helpful. The accommodations are average - outdated with a bit of a musty odor, but clean enough and always well-serviced. The included breakfast left something to be desired for a western palate, but was adequate to get... More

The SanWan hotel was a wonderful hotel. The staff were extremely polite to the guests, especially in the lobby. The cleanliness of the hotel was acceptable, albeit slightly old. The location was the best asset to the hotel. It was directly on the main street of central Taipei with many department stores including Sogo, clothing shops including Forever 21 and... More
