Taipei here we come

Staff, location and very clean and comfortable room
Love the staff very friendly and helpful, I know on previous post people complained about a hard bed, let me just say it was the best 5 nights of sleep my husband and I have had in years!! Very convenient location to train station. Loved the breakfast they offered, providing you are not a picky eater! Just loved our stay and thinking of going back soon

Better Then Expected

Food, Location & Friendly Staff
My partner was a little apprehensive about staying in this hotel as reviews here hinted it being a love motel of sorts. However the stay proved to be better then expected as the location though abit distance frm the mrt was near to the wedding boutiques and there are cheap food & convenient shops around. The inhouse breakfast though simple, was very good Taiwanese homecook fare, the right kind of stuff to start yr day & the staff are all very warm & friendly. The bed was a tad uncomfortable but was clean & the toilet is big with a build in sauna!!

Good location, friendly staff

Close to MRT, friendly staff, decent breakfast
The location is quite easy to find from the two nearby MRT stations. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. The breakfast provided is quite good, with a mix of western-style and traditional Taiwanese food. There's a 7-11 right outside the door and a good coffee shop directly across the street.

Furnishing old, room smell a bit smoky

Locate between 2 MRT station,10 mins walk. Value for money. Suits for short stay or sleepin at night. Best if it's smoke-free.
Mostly pleasant. Grateful that always a few vegetarian dishes for breakfast.

Nice comfortable room

Location, bed and adult TV channels :-)
Nice location. 10mins walk to 2 MRT stations. Very cosy room. My only complain is that room is central air conditioning, therefor U cannot control the room temperature.

It's okay

Room was functional and clean
The room was often too cold during the day, probably because the air conditioning was in full flow. However, if you just want a place to sleep each night, then this is good value for money.
