“Great Location”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Ideally located and stone's throw away to modern shops, old taiwan shops, 24 hrs eatery, SOGO, Taipei 101 area, most shopping, you name it. Hotel is definitely dated, but service, room size, WIFI, Breakfast buffett, location more than compensate for it. All taxi drivers know this place so no ripoffs. Get the deluxe room. You wont go wrong with it.

Stayed here for 5 nights and it was a decent stay as it is very close and central to much shopping, food, and even some nightlife (Luxy). Not far from the 101 and many other clubs. Pretty decently priced, great service, friendly staff, but you can definitely tell that the hotel is aging, which wasn't a problem for us as we were barely in our hotel room. Would consider staying here again in the future for sure!

The rooms are tiny and shows its age. Feel liking staying in a Best Western during the 80's. My room was so small that the only bed had to push against the side wall. Old tube television with one English channel only, CNN. The bed had no support. Beding and linens were so cheap and old, nothing I had experienced even during my traveling days in rural Texas. Hallways smell damp.

It does what it says on the tin. Nice hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast buffet. Rooms are a decent size, bathrooms could be a bit bigger, but are adequate. The only thing about the bathroom was that the shower head is a bit low and as I am quite tall, when I stand in the bath my hair touches the ceiling. There is free WiFi everywhere in the hotel.

Central location and free in room WiFi are the positives. Service is average. My room was small with a window looking directly into an adjacent building.
The hotel is old and it appears slightly over-priced.
If you have time to look around, there are similar hotels in the lanes off Nanjing East Road (among others) that are also centrally located and close to the MRT but at a 30% to 40% lower price.
I did not have time to check out the gym but there is one on site. There is a basic breakfast buffet with western style dishes available.
