“A lot better than what we thought”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

We almost cancelled this hotel after reading the review from tripadivor, some ppl review that the hotel is smelly and its employees are rude.

Anyways, we didn't cancel and we were glad that we stayed at this hotel. We picked MRT hotel because other hotels at main station and Ximen area were full. We went to Taipei with 2 seniors and preferred to stay close to MRT. This hotel is located about 2 minutes from Fuchong MRT, exit 2, very easy to spot this red building.

We stay for 4 nights, breakfast is almost the same everyday, the taste is quite good and reasonable to the hotel price. The walk way some floor is smell cigarette but the room is not that bad smell. We suggest to stay at high floor. The lobby is small, no chairs in this area.

Some receptionists and house keepers cannot speak much English but they try really hard to service and explain to you.

On top of everything, we would like to give a special thanks to Mr.Isaac and hotel staffs that gave us back my dad's necklace that worth almost 10,000 USD. My dad found out that he lost it when we arrived to Thailand. We called and email MRT hotel. Thanks for their sincere. If we have a chance to go back to Taipei, we will definitely stay at this hotel :)

Room Tip: Request for high floor, none smoking room/floor

During my 4 nights stay, there was 1 night ,we heard a woman speaking at the top of her voice at about 11pm which lasted for half an hour or more and it sounded like there was a quarrel.
I alerted the receiptionist to check.
Later we heard some knocks on our door and the neighbours' door and a woman shouting - "come out. " we ignored her and after some noises from her everything quietened.
One good thing abt housekeeping is that the staff brought us the stuff we requested in a short while, but the kitchen staff is rude. everyday I sensed that she is unhappy when we went into the restaurant for breakfast. Maybe because we were late.
another horrorible thing is there is pornography in one of the TV channels. so parents with children ,pls beware when they switched channels.
Sigh! I am definitely not staying in this hotel anymore.

A non-smoking room for 3 adults was booked, but receptionist Mr. Leon Cheng insisted it was for 2 adults, even 2 breakfast vouchers, 2 pillows and 2 towels were initially offered.

Had to get travel agent to clarify with receptionist before all amenities were catered for 3 adults.

After the check-in saga, some of the staff became very rude - especially breakfast staff, who was most impatient. Non-smoking room also smelt slightly of cigarettes.

The location of the hotel is good (opposite metro station), but overall stay was made terrible by the staff.

My supplier booked this hotel for me because all the surrounding hotels are fully booked. Not a bad choice. The hotel is located very near to a MRT station (I guess hence its name). There are big shopping centre and eateries around. A good location indeed.

The original reservations was for two nights but I had to stay 3 nights, as a result, I have to change room on the third day because of prior bookings.

Spent the first two night in an Executive Suite. Other than stains on the carpet, the room is very clean, nothing to complain about. It faces the main road but surprisingly the traffic noise is not that bad.

The 3rd night was spent in their Deluxe Suite. The room is a much bigger. One thing I find odd is to have such a good room located opposite the lift lobby. So much for privacy. The cleanliness of this room is not up to standard - dust and chips crumbs under the cushions and sofa. Lucky for me I do not have to use the sofa. This room faces an alley but traffic noise is much louder than the other side. This comes as a surprise to me.

Overall, if not because of the cleanliness problem encountered in the last room, I would say I have had a very good stay.

My husband and I stayed here twice while in Taipei. It has a great location right beside the Fuzhong MRT station (exit 2). The rooms are very clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and they cleaned it each day. Everything in the room worked well. We were in a room beside the Main Street but we didnt hear any noise. My only complaint is that every time the cleaner came she turned the ac down really low and we couldn't get it set nicely again because the controls were in mandarin.

The rate includes breakfast but it was a bit average by western standards. There is toast for a simple breakfast. The staff were friendly but didnt speak much English. They let us keep a bag at the hotel while we toured the rest of taiwan, which we appreciated. It is a bit out of the city center but there are lots of restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

This Hotel is a super affordable way to stay conveniently in Taipei. It is only a 2 minute walk from the Fuzhong Metro Station and has a convenience store across the street.
The room was clean and larger than I expected. It had a refrigerator and tea/coffee. I would stay here again.

Right above Fuzhong MRT station, and a stone's throw away from a myriad of shops across the road. Rooms are small but extremely comfortable and the price is definitely worth it. Accessible to all parts of Taipei (with the trains, you can pretty much get anywhere) Definitely coming back to stay here the next time I visit Taipei again.
