KT Star
Ranked #345 of 587 Hotels in Taipei
Reviewed 21 December 2012

PROS: This the is the 2nd time I stayed at this serviced apartment. The location is good and the place is very clean and modern. I would choose this KT Star again. The MRT is about a 5 minute walk to the Zhongshan Elementary School Station. It's very close to everything.

CONS: You cannot choose your floor. No matter how early you book, you cannot choose your floor. The first time I stay here I had a high floor and it was so quiet and a good view. This time I got the 2nd floor and it was not so quiet. I ask about a higher floor and they said the computer chooses the floor and they cannot move me. I also ask if I booker earlier if I could get a higher floor and again they said NO! To me this is very strange. Surely if you book months in advance, like I do, you should be able to get a higher floor. Poor management I think.

Room Tip: It's not possible to choose a room or even a floor! Beware!

Located in the Jhongshan district and nearby Zhongxian Elementary School subway station, KT Star is a good base to explore Taipei. It's a 7 minute walk to the subway station which is then just 7 stops from Xinyi.

The hotel is a service apartment and only available by the week. English is not really utilized so it may be hard to book (you have to call the leasing office). Prices were about US $80 a night or so. There is strong free WiFi throughout the hotel.

In the immeidate neighborhood there are plenty of places to eat and drink. I highly recommend this place.

Checked in for 3 nights at the KT Star Hotel for the New Year. It is situated in a very nice location. There are spas, noodle houses, 7-11s, Watson's, Family Marts, a small hawkers market with several eateries and outdoor street food areas very nearby (I especially liked Mr. Lan's food stall, which had the best steak sandwich).

KT Star is a serviced apartment. There is a laundry machine, microwave, plates, utensils, stove, all in your unit. Quite small, but the place works. It is very clean and very quiet. One big point also for KT Star is the very fast WiFi connection (which is free). Well, most connections in Taipei are really fast, anyway.

The MRT Station is about a 10-minute walk. You can take a shortcut through the back by going through the outdoor eatery.

Since it is a serviced apartment, your room will not be cleaned unless you ask and pay for it. But given the prices of most nice hotels in Taipei, I dont mind the absence of the free cleaning service, as KT Star was a steal (I paid NT$ 7,000 for a 3-night stay). You also add NT$ 1,000 if you want to stretch your check-out time, which I did, since my flight was late evening. This allowed me to check out at close to 11pm.

There is also a roofdeck pool which was very nice and quiet. They also had a New Year's party here where you get a view of Taipei 101's fireworks display (although we chose to go straight to Taipei 101 instead).

Very good hotel because of location. Despite the very busy area, it didnt feel crowded or stressful.

Room Tip: Choose the very peaceful 11th floor at the other wing!

excellent service. pretty large space, and great value for the money. i paid ~$70 USD per night, which beat out all the other hotels in the area. the place comes with TV, AC (very important in taipei as it is usually humid and hot most of the year), kitchen, in-room laundry machine, and everything was clean and new (including a swank bathroom). no noise, double-paned windows, great location one street from a small night market for your food needs any time of day, and two walking blocks (about 7 minutes) from the MRT MinQuan Station, 7 minutes from the MRT Zhongshan School Station. You can find them on craigslist taiwan for contacting (Layla was my service rep and was excellent in taking care of my stay. She's also quite the cutie).

just to be exact, kt star is considered a 'serviced apartment', which means you get an apartment (the laundry, kitchen, etc) for free but need to pay for maid service if you want your bed made, your towels changed, your trash taken out.

in all other respects, it is exactly like a hotel; there is a front desk, security, a pool/spa/food/etc. it's actually cheaper than a hotel to rent, as well.
