Value for money for long vacation

My family have a wonderful experience staying at the hotel. We stayed in a family room for four for 7 nights. The room size is big and cosy and we were offered the basic necessary toiletries. The free WI-FI service in the hotel also provides us with a convenient platform to check the weather and make internet bookings. However we were offered a room with no windows which causes the air condition in the room to be stale. Furthermore, we can often get the cigarettes smell at the corridor outside my room even though theres a sign that states no smoking. All in all my family have a splendid experience especially since the Taipei Metro is a walking distance away and would gladly recommend the hotel to our friends.

The Momo shopping mall which is located within walking distance from the hotel offers a plethora of cuisine at its food court. The pricing of the food is reasonable.

Convenient location and great

Convenient location and great price. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The in-room internet cable worked fine, but the wireless was slow and unreliable. Breakfast is all-you-can-eat with a wide variety of Chinese dishes--not much in the way of Western breakfast food, though.

Hondo Hotel is very clean. Each

Hondo Hotel is very clean. Each room is equipped with free sodas, water bottles, toiletries, etc. There is free internet on the main lobby. The staff here is very helpful and most speak English. The hotel is conveniently located near two bus stops and a main MRT station. There are many eateries a few steps away. Warning: No breakfast on Mondays.

Take a taxi to Taipei 101. It's easy and cheap. For most everything else in Taipei, the subway is fast, clean, inexpensive and easy.

The room is really big and definitely spacious, however, this hotel is not close to subway, so you need to take cab wherever you plan to go. Overall it's good!

Recommended! Clean & Spacious!

Recommended! Clean & Spacious! The triple deluxe room is HUGE- 2 Queen sized beds, a sofa area, a writing area, an extra space big enough for an exercise stretch area plus a HUGE bathroom. The daily breakfast is fairly good (a choice of American breakfast or Chinese congee with a few condiments) although more choices would be preferred for longer stayers. Walking to the nearest metro station (Nanjing East Rd Station) is straightforward though not exactly near (a 10-15min walk). One other plus point, the hotel is located diagonally opposite a good hotpot/steamboat restaurant - Guo Ba Shua Shua Guo. Check it out as the food is very good and Hondo guests get 10% discount!

Recommended! Very clean & spacious. The Triple Deluxe Room is HUGE - fits two Queen sized beds, a sofa area, a writing desk area plus some extra space, big enough for an exercise stretch area, and a huge bathroom! Daily breakfast is good enough (a choice of Chinese congee with some accompaniments or American breakfast) although more choices would be preferred by those who stay longer. Hondo is not exactly near the metro station though it's a straight forward 15-min walk to the Nanjing East Road Station. Nonetheless, it's just diagonally opposite a very good hotpot/steamboat place - 锅爸刷刷锅 (Guo Ba Shua Shua Guo). Get a recommendation card from the hotel reception and enjoy 10% discount 锅爸刷刷锅 !
