Far from MRT; smelly room; not enough socket to charge my phone; noisy in the afternoon; small room. Just totally beyond expectations - no lift and they gave us at 4th floor (OMG); dirty room - just arrived and already feel like all not good- let see for the breakfast menu tomorrow.

It's far from city and not much shop or restaurant around. No lift so need to walk up and carry the heavy luggage by myself for 3rd floor. It's noisy as only a thin wall and you can hear anyone who walk pass. The air-condition is off at midnight and as informed that was the hotel policy, unluckily i stayed... More

Terrible - the only word to describe this hotel. Tiny, and I mean tiny rooms, some unfriendly staff, and the most unhygienic breakfast I have ever seen. This hotel is more like a hostel or dormitory with paper thin walls and the basic of basic amenities. Noise goes straight through the walls. The only thing going for it is the... More

This is a hotel of unwelcome surprises: discovering just how out-of-the-way it is, discovering that there's no lift, discovering that your room won't be available until 9pm... This was my first time visiting Taipei. The city is quite well-connected by public transport, but it really helps to be on the MRT. The hotel is close to a bus that runs... More

I shall start off with the bad points of this hotel. Location is not ideally good as it is located in some sort of a back alley and chances are if you cab back after one day of tour, firstly the taxi driver might not know the place, secondly the taxi driver might just miss the entrance to the lobby...

The hotel is clean and the staff were extremely cordial and most helpful. Location wasn't too bad. Not that much to see if you feel like taking a stroll late at night as the neighborhood has mostly car repair places. Quite convenient as bus goes to Shilin MRT, and National Palace Museum. Overall I had a pleasant stay. More than... More

It was a small room and those traveling with a lot of luggage should be aware that there is no elevator, but it was clean and the front desk staff was just lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Not really close enough to the metro station to walk there, but taxi's are easy enough to hail on the street and very... More
