Young Professional Weekend Stay

The hotel room is nothing bigger than a walk-in closet. The room has a very unpleasant odor... The internet is crazy slow. The breakfast is terrible. I do not recommend booking this hotel. There are better hotels with same/cheaper rates, but still in a great location. Overall, this hotel is just too old.

Helpful Staff and Spacious Room

Came to Taipei for 8 nights with 2 other friends for pleasure. We took the Free Go Airport Bus from the airport, and just so happened a stop was right in front of the hotel! Upon entrance, we were greeted by friendly staff that informed us of 3pm check-in, and we could leave the luggage with the bell boy. The hotel had 3 or 4 attached restaurants. Breakfast tickets were included in the reservation, but we only used that once since the hotel was in the midst of restaurants. To fit 3 people, we were placed in a suite with an additional bed in the living area. Even just the room was much bigger than the one I got last year at another hotel. Housekeeping staff changed linens, filled toiletries, and added bottles of water every day.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Most maps provided will say Zhong Shan MRT station is the closet to the hotel. However, a new MRT line was opened recently and added a Songjiang Nanjing station. This station is much shorter to walk to.
