This hotel is very old. There is no Wifi in room but at the room detail it indicate there is. The Aircon is very noisy even at lowest fan speed.

Ordinary hotel

Everything (facilities and staff service and price) is average. I don't like the lighting of the room. It's dark. I don't like the head of bed just next to the bathroom door. Taipei is a convenient city. Most of the locations are good, not only this hotel.

Reasonable price hotel

Not a modern hotel but still keep clean and tidy outlook. Small room is clean but no outside view. It is necessary to drawn window curtains all the times. Only 10 minutes walk to reach the Yuan Shan MTR station. Quite convenience. 24 hour food street is located at the back of the hotel.

(1) From airport, take Airbus

(1) From airport, take Airbus #33 (cost NTD$90, very cheap) to Tai Tung university and walk one block and a half is the hotel. Very convenient. (2) Get around using MTR within 10-15 minutes, not bad. (3) Facilities is what you would expect from a 3 star Taipei hotel, reasonable pricing and services. (4) Room is tidy, has wired internet connection, hair dryer and plenty of cable channels. (5) Beware of using the hotel phones to call someone's local mobile#, very expensive. Try buy a local sim card to use on your mobile. (6) The breakfast is very good, enjoy it before going anywhere.

The hotel is clean. It is value

The hotel is clean. It is value for money. The receptionists are very helpful. The breakfast included is simple but nice. It is near to a small night market and also near to a family mart which is very convenient for travellers. The only down side is that it is quite a distance away from the nearest Metro.
