we were there to compete at the Taipei Arena so this was perfectly situated. it is right by the MRT (metro) so we could go sight seeing easily, the Seven Eleven was a block away for snacks and drinks, the staff were great too.

This was my second stay at the hotel however they have changed their business model to allow a swarm of people across the straits. There was a lot of pushing and shoving. For breakfast, we were told that it starts at 7 but to come at 9am as the swarm of people flock in at 7am leaving no room for... More

Solid hotel for business travel. Good size room, clean, great location right beside a MRT station, lots of cafes & and restaurants in the area. Breakfast offerings was very good. Only thing I did like was the cleaning solution fragrant. Will make my preferred choice next time I am in Taipei.

I made a reservation of the "Zen Single Room" which is the cheapest room. They upgraded my room to "Cheers Double Room" which has a gorgeous Jacuzzi bath. I stayed 3 nights and everyday I enjoyed bubble bath. People at front desk was always very nice too. The only negative point is smell from sewage. Everything else was fine.

Really close to the metro, there are also three of these along the street so beware when taking a cab or anything. This one is next to the Taipei arena metro station. The Songshan and nanjingfuxing stops also have a capital hotel right next two them. The breakfast is great and should be included in the price of the room.... More

Convenient- take Freego Bus TWD140 can ask driver to stop in front of hotel. Friendly and efficient reception. Large room, but old. Beds comfortable, but pillows too high. Shower not functioning ok. Little restaurants behind the hotel, not too bad. Poor breakfast. Little selection, miserable western choice. Close to MRT station.
