we booked 2 rooms from different websites, checking in on different dates. got one room in the mail building and another in the annex building. Stayed there for 6d5n in total.
I was satisfied with my room in the main building but my friend in the annex wasn't very pleased. They found that the 'front desk', lift and corridor to the annex building to be really dodgy.
ECFA hotel only took up 2 floors of the building, the 7th and 11th floor if i remember correctly. The rest of the floors seemed to be for residents only.
Breakfast was kinda average and variety wasn't much. Kinda assumed this was the standard taiwan breakfast.
The staff were quite helpful despite repeated calls to them, requesting for extra pillows for 3 nights in a row. We were told that they were running on full house and didn't have any extras to go around. We only received the extra pillows for the last 2 nights we were there. They also provided recommendations on places to go as well as directions which was really helpful.
The location was in ximending, about 7mins walk from the MRT. when we asked for directions, the locals we asked didn't seem to know where it was but they were very helpful to lead us in the right direction when we provided them with the right address.
Noticed that the hotel allowed guests to rent the rooms by the hour, so it probably is a love hotel, thus explaining it being full every night even though we didn't see many guests around in the morning. This didn't affect me and I wasn't bothered by it though.
The rooms were clean and the bed was really comfortable. There was nothing much to complain about inside the room. Amenities were basic but good enough.
Was really surprised that the phone calls between these 2 rooms were chargeable, when informed by the staff during checkout, as they were not in the same building and couldn't be connected. They counted it as making local calls out of the hotel. They should work on this, or at least make the calls free.
