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.

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.
