Will stay in Howard whenever i am in Taiwan business trip which normally last for a week. The appearance of the lobby is alright but the reception give guest a cosy feeling. The bell girl is a very friendly and always with a smile. At the recption, the staff are just as friendly. The hotel although does not look new but maintain relatively well. Within the room, there will be basic stuff example electrical kettle, fridge, lcd tv, a mini hifi and working table. Every room will be provided with bath tuband shower space plus a tv. Air condition is consider alright.
iron and board can be requested. There is also a mini safebox. Gym and swimming pool are neat. Pool will allow a good swim and is located at the top most floor (Indoor). For breadfast, there are western, chinese and japanese. Sound proof wise, you can at times heard your neighbour next door. Around the hotel, there are plently of dinning area. If you walk around 20 minutes, you can try alot of chinese local delights at the Cheng Huang Temple. Lots of shops for shopping for ladiesaround the area. Still a neat place to stay.
Around the hotel, there are places to

First night of our stay in Taiwan after a red-eyed flight from Singapore. Glad that the hotel allowed us early check-in. Better still, the hotel was very accommodating in allowing us to use the lobby area to set up our bikes.

Many restaurants, eateries around the hotel, and we like the small tuck-away noodle and dumpling place recommended by the concierge. Also a good Japanese fast food restaurant a short walk away - good Saboten-style chicken cutlets.

Rooms are comfortable, no frills. Same for the buffet breakfast.

Low level of service akin to a hostel - very limited hours for the pool and gym, restaurants close at 9 but actually well before that and rooms a bit tired with old fittings.

Rooms are a good size and are clean, bathrooms good. Staff are pleasant ( if a bit helpless when asked things like ' Can I get something to eat? ' at 10.00pm - suggested 711 along the road) and check in / out is efficient.

Breakfast a bit basic but OK

Place to crash , not to stay.

Very poor design. It looks like a builder has done a bodged job on this hotel. Some parts have been partially modernisied others left and very out of date.
My bedroom room was large, but nothing quite fitted. The wardrobe fro clothes far too small. Difficult to get to the safe or to use it. The carpet old and smelly. The chair at the desk looked about 50 years old, worn, with the seat surface peeling off in many places. Quite disgusting. THe curtains- I could not make them open. There was an "Easy Boy" , old looks like a pile of junk. A very odd and rather surreal room.
The bathroom larger than some hotel rooms. Nothing actually quite right. The wall mirror is bigger than the wal it was meant to fit into. There was a wet area for a shower with a glass screen to stop splashing, but this was far too small and water splashes out onto the area meant to be dry.
The gym only opens between 4-9pm. Why??
Breakfast?? What breakfast? I asked for a fried egg and showed the chef the Chinese words for this, but it never appeared. Ertsaz coffee. There was at least some cornflakes, but only full fat milk. Not a good breakfast.

This is a hotel to avoid if at all possible.

Very old hotel. Rooms have worn out look. Unclean carpet wasn't vacuumed for days which kept me sneezing. Hotel does not even have a doorman at entrance. No help with your luggage. Ground floor has an old cafe which very unclassy and cheap types. Reception is in a room in the lobby which kept me searching for it on check in. Staff at front desk was very efficient and friendly though. Outside of the hotel made me depressed when I first saw it cos it looks so old and worn out. Look for another hotel unless they refurbish the entire hotel.
