As a tourist, the best part of this hotel for me is the very close proximity to the MRT station. The hotel is decorated very modernly and the room is well-maintained and clean. The staff is very friendly and courteous, especially Susan, the front counter supervisor. The complimentary breakfast is nothing extraordinary but it is certainly enough to keep one... More

The hotel generally is nice. Its location is probably a double-edged sword. Conveniently located nearby the MRT Songjiang Nanjing, the area unfortunately doesnt have many places of interest, unlike the Taipei Main Station/Zhongshan/Ximending area which are just a few stops away. The room was comfortable and so was the bed, just it only had two pillows for a queen bed.... More

Great location (just a short 2min walk from the MRT station); loved the amenities (small gym + free laundry for guests) and the snacks and fruit offered on the first night were a lovely touch. Also provides free bottled water. Room is generally well-designed and comfortable, although the walls are so thin you can hear every conversation that happens in... More

It's not in the usual tourist areas but it's just a few minutes walk to three bus stops and a subway station so it's easy to get around. The rooms are comfortable and very clean.
