I stayed at this hotel for three nights with colleagues, and overall whilst it is certainly not the best four star hotel I have ever stayed at, it is still very good.
Check in was quick and easy and my room was again to a very good standard, being very spacious, spotlessly clean (as was the whole hotel) with a comfortable bed with a nice view over the city and river. The bathroom was also a good size with a bath and separate shower. There was also a little toiletry box provided with sealed toothbrushes, toothpaste and mouthwash which was a great touch.
There is also a desk in the corner of the room which was excellent for doing work (the free wifi was also a bonus and unlike a lot of other hotels I have stayed at, was actually pretty fast).
There is a bank of switches by the bed which controls the (several) lights in the room and these were very confusing. During the night I found myself having to spend time pressing all the buttons to find the correct one.
The breakfast served was pretty good, featuring local Taiwan cuisine as well as more western cooked food and was more than adequate to set me up for the day. Strangely though there is no bar in the hotel at all which was a little frustrating for me and my colleagues when we returned in the evening and fancied a drink, so we had to take a taxi elsewhere in the city as there didn't appear to be anywhere decent in the immediate vicinity.
There is a gym in the hotel, however disappointingly, no pool. There are however a couple of saunas, however these have to be booked in advance and cannot be used on a drop - in basis.
Overall, this is not a bad hotel at all although it is probably one of the lowest quality four star hotels I have stayed at, however the room rates are extremely competitive compared to numerous other hotels we considered closer to the centre. I would certainly recommend this as a good value hotel.
