I was in Taipei at Gwo Shiuan Hotel last week, from 6th to 10th Feb. Pros: the location is fantastic on a main street, close to the MRT. The staff was very friendly, it seems like it is a family business and they really try their best to make people feel comfortable. In particular, during the breakfast they were very... More

In hindsight the gaudy wallpaper should have told the story, so it's not a hotel to take your kids. Mainly due to the channels they are likely to find if they go channel surfing! Rooms where cheap and there was a large spa in a large bathroom, which was only just smaller than the room. The free wifi was fast... More

Although it is an old hotel, the room was clean, and certainly they have renovated the hotel already so it was quite comfortable to stay. Moreover, the location is good ( near mrt, near the banks, near food area, near super market, near 7 eleven). Hence, definitely wort your money!
