I stayed here for one night. I was surprised to find that I got a corner room which was bigger than the rest of the rooms on the same floor.
This was delightful given that I booked the room with Expedia rate and was a bit worried about them giving me the less desirable room because of that.
The lobby had high ceiling. The Interior was clean with a fresh look. Staff at the counter were friendly and efficient with my check in and out.
My room was spacious with a king sized bed. Bathroom was nice and updated. The overall feel of the room was similar to that of a room in westin.
I suppose the only downside of this hotel (which can be avoided) is the breakfast. I decided to try it out because my friend was asking me if it's worth it to book the room with breakfast. The cost was $330 Taiwanese dollars including 10 percent service charge. The food selections were few, quality was extremely poor , and empty juice tanks sat unfilled for the duration of the time I was there (about 35 minutes). The guests there like myself carefully picked the items that seemed edible (eg plain rice with some fries, a cup of milk with 1 piece of bread). The male service staff was friendly though.
Other things that may be disappointing to others but not important to me at the time:
- the fitness room smelled strongly of rubber or plastic? I checked it out just to see but was not going to use it anyways.
-the free laundry facilities sat in a dark corner in the parking lot. Lol.
Excellent hotel near MRT and shopping center. Within a 5 to 7 min walk 3 shopping center, movie theater, restaurants. Perfect to end a day after exploring Taipei.
Hotel staff very pleasant and eager to help. After viewing online before purchasing we didn't expect much from the pool. Usualy it 's always smaller, this time much better than anticipated.
Cleanliness, design, layout all above expectation. Internet speed and consistency were very good.
Breakfast buffet was really good.
To finish it off I would reccomend it to all categories of travelers. Business travellers will sleep well in quiet rooms, couples will have privacy and families lots to do around the mall and entertainemnet plaza
