Great location

Great location - very nice area for restaurants and just wondering around - loved the nearby Wholefoods store for fresh fruit and salads

Central location but average hotel

pillows location clean
In my opinion this is not a 4 star hotel. The decor, quality of food and general staff service, reception staff were curt, doesn't match up to many other 4 star hotels I've stayed in. We had requested a high floor and got one of the lowest floors with the worst view possible overlooking the flat roof with staff walking directly past our window. When I checked at reception they said they were full. Yes they were, mainly with airline staff who just want a bed for the night. The restaurant staff were okay but it was hard to get their attention. The concierge staff were all helpful and knowledgable. We had a corner room which was clean and tidy but cold. The heater/air con unit was large and noisy. The housekeeping staff were noisy, talking and letting doors slam shut. We went out and our room wasn't made up so we just had replacement towels brought to ur room. The buffet breakfast was poor, the juice and fruits were nice but the scrambled egg was overcooked and there were no baked beans. A few pastries and pancakes. I realised the staff weren't bothered about their guests when I asked if you could have any other type of egg, you could, so then I had friend egg one morning and poached egg another, much better than the scrambled egg on offer but why did I have to ask? The hotel is in a good location, Polk Street has lost of interesting places to eat during the day and night and bars open until late. The cable car runs nearby, its on a good bus route and there are plenty of taxis around.

Wanwen L. Solo travelers Taiwan, May 15, 2014
Bad experience.

1. Close to cable car station, but you need to make a transfer to almost all major tourist spot.
The housekeeping guy is obviously rude. The hotel's location wasn't very good, there are no central aircon and the aircon in the room is irritatingly loud. Will not stay here again.
