First Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was there for a business trip and stayed for almost two months. The hotel staff was very nice and friendly. The room was very comfortable. I strongly recommend this hotel.

If you are just looking for something simple and budget minded then this is your choice. Close to subway, amenity is kind of old but clean. I will stay again.

The reason we stayed this hotel for 15 nights, due to my daughter had to stay this hotel for training class as an English teaching program with HESS, then this hotel's staffs were very helpful and friendly, therefore we stayed more nights after the training program. This is a 3 star hotel, at the very last time I had the free breakfast, I saw the hotel manager was at the breakfast area, she was checking the food service, I was going to approaching her to let her know about the breakfast menu, then I realized most of the customers they probably would like their food, but to western people or people like us(living USA more than 30 years, this kind of breakfast was not international enough.

Good location. Breakfast so so. The Executive room is much better than business room which is really small.

The room is unexpectedly small. The location is convenient for connecting airport bus.

The room is decent and the hotel location is good. They provided room upgrade, welcome fruits, free intrenet and free breakfast with nice variety. Good value for money.

Ask for one bed but are given two beds. Room not clean, good location, good breakfast.

Taipei First Hotel location is very convenient to most of visiting area in the city. The hotel is old, but clean. The price is good concern the location. The continental breakfast is simple, but is acceptable.

Overall good value for the price we paid for our 1 night stopover in Taipei before returning to USA. However, their WIFI was not very reliable.

room space is large, two beds are confortable old hotel but refurnished, well equiped ,a little noise from street construction . near by there are lots of restaurant can be choose. its' good choise while in TAIPEI.

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.

good customer service, reasonable price and the room space are quite fine but the room cleaning still need to have some improvement.

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.

1. It is in a convenience location 2. Price is fair 3. Hotel is clean 4. Hallway carpet may need to be replaced in some area. 5. Staffs are helpful and courteous.

The room was very clean, and the breakfast was great which made it easy to start a day.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. We liked the breakfast here a lot because they served both western and chinese breakfast, and it made it easy to start a day.

It took the front desk receptionist a long time to locate our reservation because she had to look up a long hand-written list. The front desk and business center staff are poorly trained. I used the computer in the business center to check in with the airlines.I was not informed when I walked in to use the computer that these was a charge. Nor was there any sign re charges. I was harassed to pay after I turn the computer off. We found several cockroaches crawling in our room. I would not recommend anyone to stay in this hotel.
