It's old, can be noisy, rooms are small, and many rooms don't have windows (which can be a problem for those who need light to stimulate them to wake). But I thought it was fantastic value for the price I paid for the double room, less than $60... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in the first week of June 2015. I was in Taipei for Computex Show. Not a star hotel at all. However. a value for money hotel with all the basic facilities. I think the best for those looking for budget hotel. If you are looking for a star hotel then it is not at all.
