Easy access to MRT ”

location, accessibility to public transportation and room

I stayed in this hotel for the second time. quite an easy access to MRT Sonjian nanjin stn. but also possible to Zhongshan stn. by foot(we even walked to the hotel from Taipei main station). since taxi is not expensive in the city, a hotel location may not an issue but still nice to stay in the heart of the city for some strolling. recommended.

Good location and the price is acceptable

It is good for the people come to Taipei, coz there is the shuttle bus directly comes from the airport. And the location of the hotel is good, it is very easy to access to any place, it just take 5 mins to the MRT. If next time I come to Taipei again I will choose to stay the first hotel again. It was a really good experience for me.

price and location

I had to pick up a friend from the aiport and made a one-day visit to Taipei. The hotel is well located. The room was clean and decent in size (below average). For the purpose just perfect. For a longer stay, I would choose another hotel - for a weekend trip, when one is staying primarily outside, it was just the right one.

Nice hotel with good facilities”

Strong wi-fi, good ambience, friendly staff

Although First Hotel doesn't look good from the outside, I was surprised by the nice ambience inside the room. The room is just nice, not too big nor small and you can find all the things that you need: wi-fi, hair dryer etc. The staff are very friendly especially the housekeepers, who greeted me everytime I saw them. There are some Japanese restaurants just outside the Hotel if you want to have a quick meal near the hotel. The drawback I would say is that the hotel is relatively far away from the nearly Metro Station. Zhongshan Station is about 15-20mins walk away. However, you can still take a bus to the nearest metro station if you know the way. Other than that, Im quite pleased with my stay.

nice room, clean and big

although the hotel is not very easy to find, it's good enough to arrive there. convenient tho not exactly close to subway. But the service is great, with smiles and willing to help. The room is huge, the beds are nice for a family of 4 people. The bathroom is decent. Staying there at this low price at this decent quality hotel is definitely a plus and no doubt that we'll re-visit this hotel next time.

Traveling again through Taipei I stayed at this hotel and for the first time. The rooms are reasonable, the staff are very friendly and efficient, amenities are available and internet was free. I have stayed uncountable times in Taipei and was always happy. I would probably stay there anytime again because it's location is simply good and there are plenty of activities within walking distance.

Everything is right - smooth and soft bed linens with hard & comfortable mattress, decent breakfast, friendly and efficient staff, good in room amenities of a 4 star hotel - fridge, safe, hair dryer, coffee maker, etc. Except that the room is a bit small as a business double, and need to walk about 10 min to the nearest subway station..

We booked 2 rooms in the hotel, one is double delux and one executive twin. Located in 9th and 10th floor. I recommend executive twin if you wish to have more space. The shower room is clean and well facilitated. Breakfast was fair. It's around 5-10 minutes walk from mrt station, changing trains are required if you want to go to the famous sights. Overall it's a nice hotel.
