“Fair enough for the money and great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

I went for a short trip in Taipei so I decided to find a good location of hotel which is near to the Metro station. No doubt this hotel really has a great location which is only take 2 mins slow walk to the metro station (yellow line). Some people may find that the yellow line not so convenient but it is fine for me. Other than that, there is a 7/11 and a bakery shop downstairs..also with some restaurants nearby..

However, I would say that I not really enjoy the stay in the hotel. The generator of the air cond has a big issue, almost every night it will be stopped running and I was awoke in the middle of the night (it was summer in taiwan). The hotel management knew about this issue so they already prepared a fan..but I can't really sleep well every night because I felt stuffy even with the fan switched on..maybe I really can't leave without air cond..another downside of the hotel is they don't have safe deposit..which I found it is quite inconvenient for the guests..

Besides, like what other reviews commented the wifi problem, I don't have much issue as the management tried to boost up the strength and coverage of the wifi to the rooms which are further from the main desk..which I must add credit to the management because I feel that they at least trying to improve on this issue..

Overall, the staffs of the hotel are very nice, friendly and helpful. You can't complain about the cleanliness of the room as well. They do provide towels and replenish the toiletries everyday. The rooms are very spacious as well. If you are planning for a short stay and you are not picky, this hotel is a good place to stay with its great location :)

Small room and no breakfast offered.
Nice service and reasonable price.
Weak wireless signal as already written some where here.
If you are here for sightseeing, we suggest to stay some where near the intersections of blue line and red line.

I stayed here for two night and the hotel is right next to Songjiang Nanjing Road Station exit 4 (松江南京路站出口4号. It's not that obvious to start with as the hotel occupies the 5th floor of a commercial building. At the 5th floor there was a pleasant lady to greet me and spoke a very limited English.
She showed me to the room which was fully carpeted and with a nice comforatble bed, TV, bathroom (though no shower curtain means the floor can get very wet). There is free wi-fi in the room but the further from the lobby you are, sometimes the signal was a bit weak.

I suspect this is more of a love hotel with the windown between the bathroom and bedroom meaning that, with the blind up, you can see eveything that is going on in the other room and also the condom left out beside the bed.

There is no breakast room, you just help yourself to coffee and buns at the lobby and take them back to the room. There is a fridge, boiling water tap but no safe.

However it is very comforatable and the location means it is easy to get around the whole of Taipei. Would consider again!

Room Tip: There are only 12 rooms, get one nearer the lobby for better wifi signal
