great location but poor services

Supposed to be 5 stars hotel, I would only rate it for 3 stars. We stayed in the hotel for three nights, everything had a price tag even made a local call. Get charged for unknown calls to overseas. The lobby manager forced me to paid $50 phone bill I told them many times those weren't my phone calls. No free Wifi for a"5stars" hotel!!?? I have to pay for the WIFI. That was not acceptable for a five stars hotel! Over all I dont think it's great experience for me.

Review

Generally the hotel is very good. Location wise is a little off track as it is not within walking distance from a underground station. But taxis are easily available. The only gripe I have is that the check-in/check-out counter staff do not appear friendly. Unusual for hotels in Asia. There were unsmiling and no greetings etc.

Good for shoppers!

The hotel room is clean and the bed is quite comfortable. Some staff were very friendly and willing to help if you have any question but not all of them. Like the first day of my check in they did not gave me the room that I have booked. I booked a deluxe single room and they gave me another room that is so much smaller from what I have booked. They gave me all sort of excuses of why I did not get to stay in the room I booked and I find it's ridiculous. Anyway, beside of not getting the room that you've book, this hotel is really not a bad choice.

The size of the hotel was relatively

The size of the hotel was relatively big. But to my disappointment, the room and the utilities in the room were a bit old. The bathroom door could not remain open as there was no stopper. The wireless connection was very instable and couldn't detect the network most of the time. So I gave up and just slept! With my own business hotel experience in Taipei, there should be better hotel than Howard Plaza for the same or even lower price.
