The Tango Taipei LinSen3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We just spent 15 days in Taipei staying at the Tango Taipei LinSen. It's very good accommodation at a reasonable price. The standard room size was adequate and well equipped. There was sufficient space for our 2 suitcases. 2 carry-ons and 2 day packs. Our window faced a lane way with little light but this was unimportant as we spent little daytime in the room. The king size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with an excellent shower. Wifi was very good. There was free bottled water and pineapple cakes placed everyday in our room. The hotel provided a free daily laundry service for our socks and underwear. There was a good standard buffet breakfast in the basement dining area - but note that this is the only food service provided by the hotel. Still, Taipei offers plenty of dining options. There is a very small gym which we used on several occasions. Location is very central in the Zhongshan area and convenient to train and bus services. The staff were great - very friendly and helpful - no delays when I requested assistance or had a query. Some staff have limited English but someone was always available to assist when English was necessary. I did use the small business centre on one occasion. One PC did not work and the other was using Chinese - but the staff helped me to change the language to English. Overall, we were very happy with our stay here.
Hotel outlook: It does not look that shabby even though it has aged. looks like a normal hotel on the outside. no fanciness. Service: It is a business hotel, so do not expect tourist-like hotel service like concierge bellboys to open doors for you and to carry your luggage for you. However, if you request, the service staff will be able to help carry your luggage if you have too many of them. Rooms: I have booked a premium suite. It sounds good, but it does not look as spacious as it sounds. Bed is a king sized bed, and it is very comfortable! kudos! Amenities is normal, and there is a bathtub in the bathroom. Room looks comfy and cosy. Soundproofing is okay only as i can hear footsteps from the outside. Rooms are clean too and well maintained compared to other hotels around its age. Location: It is around 8-10 minutes walk to the nearest MRT stations. A good thing is that there is 3 different MRT lines that are relatively near. Thus, it is easy to walk to a desired MRT that you do not have to transit. It is very near nice japanese eateries too, as the hotel is situated in an area where alot of japanese will congregate. Others: Hotel breakfast has limited selections, but the quality of food is superb! Overall: This hotel is a bit pricey for a tourist hotel. You can stay in ximending for the price you pay. But i still feel that this hotel is worth staying as it is near to taipei main station and there is nightlife if you need one.
Location, luxury and excellent staff - pity about the non-western breakfast but you can't have everything! The hotel picked us up from the airport and offered us luxury rooms with whirlpool spa baths, separate showers and automated everything - even the curtains worked on a motor. Bit fiddly working the coffee machine - surely a kettle is simpler? Anyway - brilliant for a short stay in a very interesting city.
We only stayed here for a short stopover, but the hotel really impressed. It has a very low-key profile from the outside (save from the signs, it really just look like an apartment), but everything from the lobby to the hallway to the room are spacious and quite elegant. The room we stayed was the junior suite, and although only slightly larger than a typical Taipei hotel room, it was brilliantly designed to have everything (sleeping area, a sitting/working area and a spacious bathroom) while not feeling cramped. My only complaint was that because the windows in the room doesn't open, it has a bit of the moldy + cigarette smell (similar to what you would smell in a KTV room). We were quite tired so didn't bother asking for another room, but hopefully this only affect this particular room. If I'm being picky, the bathroom is less than sparking clean. The hotel is in a less desirable area (the quasi red light district) and the surrounding can be a bit unpleasant. Transportation-wise, two subway stations (blue, red and green lines) and numerous bus lines are within 5 to 10 minutes walk.
Average stay on my second visit. Trash was not emptied out on my first night. Couldn't get late check out although the hotel was not fully booked. Reception was friendly. Breakfast was terrible. You are better off eating at the many eateries nearby.
I wanna to stay at this hotel for a very long time and because of an unexpected reason, my plan changed to go Taipei on August, and luckily, I got a nice offer there, it costs us only TWD 11000 for 4D3N suite + breakfast. Hence, finally I have an exceptionally experience to stay there. Even though the suite is not extremely big, surely, the setting is totally fit for our trip, my friend and I even prefer to stay at room for chit chat rather than hang out often, so if you are looking for a nice place for leisure trip, this hotel is really a good choice!
Many eateries around the hotel, particularly Jap cruisine. Modern but small room with a big bed! There is a nice jacquzzi in the room to relax your body but some of the functions were not working (eg light button by the tub). I love the jap style toilet functions the most! What an invention. No breakfast provided but not really necessary since you will be spoilt for food option within the vicinity. Plenty of free mineral water in room to hydrate ourselves amid the humid summer heat. Strong in room wifi. Many jap customers at this hotel hence the steep price. Small lobby with only 1 lift which can take abit of waiting time.
It's good & enjoyable experience staying in tango Xinyi . Everything was perfect except the breakfast is not very good & the spa bath doesn't work.... When I turn on it, it made my whole room wet nice
This hotel doesn't make a great first impression -- external view of the building is uninspiring, and the lobby is rather sparse and dark. That's the only bad thing I can say about it however. The building is old, and some of the furniture is so old they're retro. Everything is however very clean, and in very good condition, as is the room generally. The beds are wonderful, and the jacuzzi tub and washlet a very welcome addition. What made this hotel special for us was the attention to small detail. The usual amenities were extra nice - good Gaoshan tea, big fluffy bathrobes. These things made a difference, as did the kind and attentive service. It's a well run hotel, in a great part of the city.
When we arrived at the hotel, the check-in was very quick for us. We got a room on 5th floor. The room includes kind of a small living room with sofa, TV and a Hi-Fi dvd player, a desk with fast Ethernet Internet access + wifi. There is a safe in the wardrobe and water boiler with cups. All recent equipment. The breakfast is good and changes everyday (5 days). They have a very smart combination of shower+bath enclosed in glass wall, plus the bath tub is jacuzzi. The staff is nice and indicated good restaurants around. Also they have a free shuttle service to the subway station, although it is not far... We would definitely return there. A minus point if you are handicapped person: the breakfast room is downstairs and there is no elevator.
