Of the four hotels I used in taiwan this was the worst - but it wasn't bad !! Positive - spacious room. Wifi. Fitness room. Good location for shopping and evening. Staff are friendly. Only negatives really are about the decor being worn and dated. Not a bad choice if you are in Taipei

My choice of this hotel was based on the location! I was not disappointed at all, because there is a metro entrance 200 meters away, and in the area there are plenty of restaurants shops and shopping stores. The room was pretty small and in need of refurbishment, but acceptable. The mattress was hard but I managed to sleep good....

This hotel is located in a shopping area. There are lots of shops and places to eat. The hotel itself is dated. However, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The moment you walk through the doors you are greeted and feel welcomed. If you have shopping bags in your hands when you come through the door, they will immediately...

Just stayed here for 3 nights. The staff are really pleasant and helpful. Housekeeping immediately called reception and caught us before we left when my son left his books on checkout. Everyday they would greet the guests with enthusiasm. The location is fantastic - the MRT is at the doorstep. This is a tourist class hotel. The common areas are...

Website definitely makes the hotel look better than it is. Good looking lobby and reception area, but downhill from there. Old (possibly not the cleanest) carpets in hallways and in the rooms. Musty smell from too much humidity accumulated over time. no control over the A/C. Breakfast buffet was passable, but Chinese restaurant on first floor helped redeem the overall...

Top location for shopping, service excellent. Furniture old. Room not clean when you look behind desks and TV furniture. Worst case is I found a 3 cm cockroach behind the desk. This happened on my first visit 6 years ago already and thus never came back. Had no other chance due to exhibition week. Won't come back for many years....

San Want Hotel is a full services class act by any measures, professional uniformed staff are always outside and inside all public areas, friendly, pleasant and eager to...

Stayed three days recently at this hotel in the center of Taipei City. Very conveniently located closed to restaurants, shopping areas and MRT stations. Rooms are clean and the staff are super friendly. Breakfast is included with a selection of Western and Chinese dishes, good coffee!

Nice location for a family re-union. Friendly and helpful staff, English speaking front desk, lobby staff was always smiling and helpful. We had two rooms, one very large with two king beds, the other w two single but sufficient. Location is a big plus, MRT station is just outside that can get you almost all attractions very easily and cheap....

We stayed here 5 night very good location and easy to go anywhere because this location is the center of Taipei and near Zhongxiao Dunhua metro station not far from Taipei 101. The rooms included bathrooms are clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.
