The room is VERY spacious. I love the steam sauna shower room which you can relax after a long day of walking around in Taipei. The staff is helpful and nice, but seems they are not too familiar with the sight seeing spot. There is a shopping mall right next to the hotel, but nothing too interesting. Just some regular brand name stores.
The breakfast is quite good too. It is helpful that they serve breakfast as there is nothing around. There are starbucks, some chain restaurant around. But there is no shops that sell local food that we would like to try like the soymilk and rice ball kind of stuff which is kind of disappointing.
It is quite far from central Taipei. It takes around 20 mins by train. All the shops (nothing much around the hotel) close relatively early, like around 11 pm-ish, the area in the hotel is dead quiet. The room is very spacious as everyone mentioned, but! the design is not practical in some way. In the bathroom, there is no rack for towels. There is not enough electric outlet in the room. There is a HUGE wardrobe in the room, but there is no hanger!! The front desk staff then kindly brought some hangers up, but the hangers are those you will get at the laundry store ....(the white metal thin one)
The light setting in the room is quite annoying. It won`t let you choose one by one.
If you have been staying in international hotel chains, you might not be satisfied with the level of cleaniness & professionalism of this hotel. For the money I am paying, I would say I am satisfied, but not sure if I will stay there again... There are those small things that annoyed me!
We complained the room is too dark so they changed us to a room on 7th floor that has window and a even more huge bathroom. Too bad we went to spa that night, so we did not have a chance to use it.
I totally agree with another person`s comment saying that this hotel is trying hard to be a luxurious hotel, but it is not!
