Good value for Money

Consider how much I paid for the room, I would say it's a good deal. The hotel is located in between two MRT stations, takes about 10 mins walk to each, which is very convenient. The hotel looks rough from the picture but it's actually quite ok in reality. The room is clean and tidy.

Value for money and 8 min walk to nearest MRT

Located in the Japanese night spot area (streets are lined with KTV lounges and massage parlours which come alive at night), this hotel has been around since 1964. Given that it's so old, I would think the hotel is quite well maintained for its age. If you don't mind a 8 min walk to MRT, it is quite worthwhile to stay here as the service is good and attentive since most of their customers are Japanese.

Very nice place to stay

I stayed at this hotel for a bit over a week and I definitely had a nice time overall. The reception staff is friendly, responsive and their level of English makes it easy to interact with. The room was spacious and very comfortable and well taken care of daily. The cleaning staff could not really speak English, but that does not matter that much anyway. While it is not that close to a MRT (mass transit) station, it is but a 10-15 minutes walk to Zhongshan station, in a busy shopping district. So that's fair enough for me. I had a room at the end of the hotel, just next to another shop and you could hear distinctly some kind of pump/pressure noise repeatedly during the day, but nothing preventing a siesta if inclined to do so. I'd say it's a good value.

great staff! great location!

The building and rooms show its age but cleanliness was not jeopardized. It may not be spotless but comfortable enough. Basic amenities in the room are available like TV, hairdryer, AC, toiletries and other hotel compendiums. There is no breakfast cafe and no room service. Nevertheless, decent bakeries and many convenience stores like 7-11 and Family Mart are just walking distance. Not to forget the Mc Donald's which is 5 min walk away and Starbucks at 8mins by foot. Local noodle shops open a bit late for someone who wakes up at 7am like me. I think the shops open at 10:30am. At mid-day, the area gets alive with the lined up noodle and dimsum shops. Push cart goodies are also around. Several Seafood Restos and Japanese Restos are within the vicinity. Ximendeng is just 10mins by car, the nearest bus station is just 5mins by foot and the ZhongShang train station is just 15min walk (which is not too long as you can window shop as you walk) The staff upgrades my rating for this hotel. They are very friendly. Even friendlier than Thai hospitality (as I describe it). They may not speak English well but the effort counts as much. I would like them to upgrade the rooms and modernize it a bit and a buffet breakfast will be great. Price and value though is amazing!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are going to YanMingShan National Park, most travel advisories would recommend you to go to Taipei Main Train Station but if you are staying at Astar Hotel, Bus 260 stops at Zhongshang North Road, which is just a short walk from the hotel.

Average

It is not near the MRT stations as stated in other reviews. The hotel is located between 2 stations which are about 15-20 mins away. Nice clean big bathroom and nice bedsheets, blankets. The other annoying thing is that the reception will call you every single time to check if you need your room made up/cleaned if you don't leave the hotel by a certain time in the afternoon.

Good value but service is inconsistent

This hotel is pretty decent and good value for money. It has all the basic facilities and I liked the fact that it has in-room wifi. In terms of service, I encountered a female front desk staff who is such a gem and is extremely polite and helpful. The same, however, cannot be said of her colleagues and even manager.

Good, clean, friendly staffs

Room is very clean. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. It's located about 5-10 mins walk to train station and there are many shops along the way so you can explore around too. It would also be good if they serve simple breakfast though.

The hotel is near to the city

The hotel is near to the city and the room is very clean. One thing to disappoint me is the breakfast provided by the restaurant. The hotel did not have their own catering service and hence we have to walk about 5 mins to other restaurant for the breakfast included in the hotel room package.

It was 2 blocks to the Yongshan

It was 2 blocks to the Yongshan station, so that was good. We asked for 2 pillows which came in 2 mins, so that was good. We like to support the individual business owner, but the property itself is very old. And our rooms had no windows! It felt more like a prison than a hotel room. Thank God we only booked two nights - for extra US$20, we upgraded to Park Taipei and it was so much better - non smoking hotel, english speaking staff and everything is new!
