Couples should come and stay. Feeling is like the song (one night in Beijing, ni Hui liu xia hao duo qing) + convenient to all major attractions! Going shilin night mart just take Taxi only $150twd. All other places you could commute from shilin train which is more straight forward.

We stayed for two nights on a recent trip to Taiwan. Loved it!
There are 51different theme rooms. We slept in a different room each night, and peeped into several others. Staff were fantastic, even ringing us in Australia to find out which rooms we would like.
Would love to return and try some more rooms.

Stayed for 2 nights during peak holiday season in this hotel, and we got to try their Queen and King suite. Unfortunately, we were unable to pre-book the rooms we had in mind initially, apart from the available (leftover) unbooked rooms on the actual staying dates when we arrived.
Nevertheless, the rooms are fun, amenities are plentiful, and the staffs (albeit with their limited english) are friendly and would try to help you as best as they could.
Oh, and whatever inside the mini bar are for you to take and enjoy without any additional charge. Our Queen and King suites includes instant noodles :)
We had a few non-working powerpoints that need replacing inside our King suite, but apart from that, our stay was pleasant.
Bathroom is massive and includes spa, water jet massage, and infrared sauna,

The location is close to Jiannan Rd MRT station and REALLY close to Miramar - a big shopping mall that has the ferris wheel that is arguably one of Taipei landmarks. Carrefour, Food Republic, and A.Mart is barely a couple of blocks away too, so you really shouldn't get hungry. This area is quite a fair trip away from Taipei City Hall/ main tourists area though, so if you decided to stay here, allow around 30 minutes to travel by MRT to Taipei Main Station.

If you are going to stay for multiple nights, you may want to also check out in the morning, surrender your luggage for safekeeping at the reception, and choose a different themed room for you to check in next.

Breakfast is buffet style and adequate. If you travel with young kids, just keep the TV remote (combined control with the lights and air conditioning) from their hands, as they can easily access the adult channel from the remote control.

Huge bedroom and the bathroom is the same size as the bedroom. Our room is, generally, quite clean but we saw 1 spot of food at an inconspicuous corner in the bathroom. Location is good as it is near to Jian Nan mrt station but this station is far from Taipei main station. We took 1hr from ShiLin market to get back to hotel via mrt. WIll recommend to take taxi as its a 20min at around TWD200+. Nearby is the Miramar shopping centre and Carrefour and shops close around 9-10pm in this residential area. Breakfast is included and basic, mainly chinese cuisine.

My stay here was a pleasant one. The rooms were clean and the themes gave each rooms their character.

Everything at the mini bar is free! The rooms have everything you need! Facial foam, make up remover, toiletries, jacuzzi with tv... It even has a steam room!

The downside is it's location. it's located away from popular tourists attractions.

Room Tip: If you don't mind, you are able to checkout every morning and check-in again to have a 'tast...

I am so puzzled why there are only 5 reviews and also the ranking is only 128 out of all the hotels listed in Taipei. Puzzled because I find Sato Castle a great place to stay at.

Every rooms has a different theme, from Superman, Spiderman, Doremon, Little Mermaid, Hacker Mission, Amazon, just to name a few.

The room is so huge, not to mention the various themes in every room. Huge Jacuzzi + TV, multi functions bathroom with massage sprinkle and steaming function !!

When you leave the castle to have fun outside, you will be required to surrender the keys for additional security, nobody other than their guests will be able to take the lift up to any level as the main lift lobby doors are electronic locked from their reception.

Everything is provided from:
1) Body lotion
2) Body Shower
3) Cleansing lotion
4) Shower Cap
5) Sanitary pad
7) Toothbrush + paste
8) Razor
9) Comb
10) Snacks + 2 bottles of Mineral water + fruits

You will have your personal car garage with controlled shutter just outside your room door !!

Buffet Breakfast is on the 6th floor, breakfast is the usual, will change every day though.
Porridge, fried rice, noodles, fried eggs, ham + sausage, buns, toast bread, vegetables, potatoes, coffee + fruit juice,

Location of Sato Castle is great, only a 5mins walk to Miramar Shopping Mall & Ferris Wheel, Carrefour is also opposite Miramar Mall, with restaurants on the first floor.
Nearest Metro Station will be the Jianan Road Station, also a 5mins walk only.

The drawback perhaps is their check-in time at 10pm, however during weekdays and if you are a tourist, check-in time can be arranged at 6pm earliest. due to the fact that Sato Castle is listed as a Motel not a Hotel.

Another would be their lack of a proper reception counter. Their reception is only a "guardhouse" at the entrance of the Sato Entrance, many times I had to check-in & out every morning because I wanted to experience as many different rooms as possible, so I had to drag luggage and bags out to the reception which is in the middle of their drive in road, Cars checking out will be passing by me and I had to stand very close to the walls of the reception with big luggage, makes me uncomfortable.
