Hot spring triple double (3x double beds) room is very spacious but pretty basic in facilities. Room is L shaped. One side of the L is pretty bare. Only 1 free electrical socket in the big room. Had to pull out the fridge and tv (still an old small CRT type in comparison to big flat screens you get nowadays, even in cheaper hotels) plugs and take turns to charge our phones, computers and camera batteries. Interior walls were plain metal panels, probably metal for insulation because the room comes with its own private hot spring bath. Aircon temperatures can't be adjusted, just fan speeds. With the same fan speed set for the 2 nights stayed, it was too cold on night 1 yet slightly to the warm side on night 2. Each of the 3 beds' mattresses were configured differently - soft, medium and hard. Pillow cases, sheets and towels were pretty dusty, had dirt marks but had no funny smells. There are separate water pipes in the bath, one for regular tap water (for showering) and the other, to fill your hot spring bath.. though the hot spring water isn't always hot immediately and you may need to run it for quite a while. Room provides 2 complimentary bottles of bottled water per guest. There is also free wifi. The room we got was near the lift lobby and could get very noisy when chattering guests walked by or waited for the lifts. Breakfast was average, serving mostly chinese fare (salty, fried or stir fried dishes mostly, to accompany plain congee and mantou, a steamed bun/bread). There were several chinese tour groups staying there at that time, which might explain the chinese fare. There was a dedicated vegetarian spread and a small western one (basically toast with your choice of sugared spreads - even the peanut butter is sugary sweet). Did not try the public hot spring as we had our own private one. The hotel is about a 10 mins' walk to the nearest MRT station (Xinbeitou) via a straightforward road and footpath and roughly 40 mins to the main central train station. Situated in a quiet area with a nice garden/park to enjoy.
