            Very professional and very helpful staff, easy to communicate with in English which, unfortunately for me, is the only language I speak.

            I thought the staff were very polite and helpful, albeit their English was not great, thier attitude was.

            I thought the beds were too soft and so I did not sleep so well. The sofa in the room was a bit on the old and tired side.

            Really helpful staff, especially in advising how to get to places in Taipei and surrounding area.

            The staff seamed non existant, that is good you only see them when you want to, and the location is perfect to access the whole city with ease

            It felt like a hotel from the 80's, though everything was clean, but was rundown, like the bath robe very clean but threads are starting to fall.

            Good Location.

            The location was excellent, near major monuments, shopping areas and subway stations. The breakfast buffet provided both Chinese and European items.

            The room overlooked the inner courtyard, where one of the hotel restaurants is located and thus was noisy until 9:30 pm, when the restaurant closes. After that, the room was extremely quiet.

            Only location and the welcome from doorman.

            Waiting for 14 que to have breakfast at 9am, which is very bad ,The room is small and the bath room also small.

            The MRT that's right beside the hotel.

            The furnishing of the room is too old and just out of date already especially compared to the up beat enviroment and atmosphere Taipei is surrounded with.

          • Older travelers

            I appreciate your well trained, efficient, friendly and helpful staff. They go about their job quickly, effectively and politely. Nothing was much of a bother to them.

            Not really much to complain apart from our first room which smelt heavily of cigarette smoke. However a room change was quickly given and the stay was great after that.

            Good location and had a European feel about it.

            Rooms were spacious but fairly basic (I stayed in Deluxe category). The breakfast was not very good, especially for Westerners.
