I stayed at Yusense Hotel for my mandatory quarantine during November 2021. The room was super clean, essentially spotless - a real comfort to see during Covid times. The room was spacious, with enough floor area to exercise. The room's mountain view immediately put me at peace, which was much needed as quarantine/isolation can really put one's mood down. The room got plenty of sunlight as well - another source of mood booster. On service - one might think service might not be important during quarantine given you're locked up 24/7, but if you've quarantined before, you'll know it's crucial - hotel staff did an outstanding job - from promptly responding to my requests, to customizing my meal plan for my dietary restrictions, to quickly getting my Foodpanda deliveries from the front desk to the doorstep of my room. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and responsive and I'm really thankful to them for that. The meal plan was well thought out, fruits were provided as part of the meals daily, and the occasional surprise afternoon tea/cakes were a delight. Only negatives I'd say is that the room windows were a bit too reflective at night, and, and for my own personal preference, there wasn't enough room lighting during the night hours (natural lighting during the day was great), however the hotel was happy to provide extra lamps upon request. This hotel really had it all to make my quarantine stay more pleasant.…
We really enjoyed our stay at this quality hotel. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent bathrooms and service. The breakfast was very good and varied. I want to say thank you to all the staff and in particular Vicky. Nothing was ever any trouble. Great to have a self service laundry and a gym too. Lots of taxis and Uber so location was not an issue. We have stayed all over Taipei and this is the best. Coming back next year.
“have traveled to Taiwan since the 80s and this year for myself and to the Palace Museum which can never be enjoyed enough. I found Yusense on-line and based it on its proximity to the museum and knowing how inexpensive and convenient ground transport is. the hotel staff are over the top in being unobtrusive, helpful, and solicitous. Mr Lin, the Executive Director, took me on a tour of his father’s wood carving collection and shared an ad hoc single malt tasting with his sister in their lounge. a family runned 5-star gem with a soul. every detail is man-made, thoughtful. a beautiful tranquil retreat. my room overlooked a forested hill. i bet it is the center of the renewal of a modest but completely safe area. i’ll be back with a glenrothes!”
This is a clean, cheerful place brilliantly located for access to the National Palace Museum and staffed by helpful people with excellent English. My only suggestion would be to try to provide some sort of dinner service in the restaurant.
Very well appointed rooms, top marks for design (elegant zen-style). Good for those who appreciate privacy, and quiet surroundings. Very clean rooms! Although it is not near the MRT, it is walking distance from the National Palace Museum. Taxis are available - front desk can call. Staff are helpful and polite.
