Had a short 2 night stopover in Taipei and this place was perfect for my budget. I checked in quite late at night and check in was a breeze.
The room isn't too big, but was just fine for me since I was traveling alone. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the room had some great extras that really make your stay nice. Each day you get 2 free waters, plus a bag of sun chips and doritos which make for a great late night snack after a long day of sightseeing! Also the TV comes with free on demand pay per view with a pretty extensive library! The wifi is free as well, and the connection was good enough to hold a skype connection if you need to stay in touch with the rest of the world.
The location is probably the best part of the hotel, just down the street from the Taipei main station which makes getting around the city a breeze. You can also walk to/from the bus terminal so it makes it very convenient to get to/from the airport. Also near the main station are plenty of great places to eat, and of course the NOVA electronics mall if you need to pickup some cheap gadgets.
Caveat to this hotel is that the hallways were a bit noisy, woke me up a few times but wasn't a deal breaker for me. Also, the room I booked was without windows, but I got a funky "ocean view" painted on the wall with some sort of weird sea monster on it lol. It gave me a laugh and was a novelty that made up for the lack of a window.
Would definitely recommend, especially for a short stopover as it is a great base for exploring the city.
