I picked this hotel because I regularly use the Prince Hotel in KL; a great hotel which I always enjoy. Unfortunately the hotel is a bit past its "best" date and the place is starting to show signs of decay.
> undoubtedly the friendliness of the staff is one of the great features of this hotel. I was impressed throughout my stay with just how helpful everyone was.
> whilst the hotel is old it remains well maintained. I was on level 4 where housekeeping really did a fantastic job on my room every day.....the lady doing it was lovely. I like the fact that the bedding got changed every day without me having to put a card on my bed specifically asking for it to be changed. Ok, ok call me environmentally unfriendly but part of staying on a hotel is having nice crisp sheets to climb into at the end of the day!!
> the hotel is well located.
The not so good
> The rooms are "past it". Well maintained but looking tired. The bathroom looked especially jaded.
> The room I was initially given had a foul smell about it. I thought it was a smoking room but it just seemed to be getting a smell from the drains. I complained to the front desk who said they would fix the problem. I requested a new room which the hotel arranged.
> I may have been unfortunate but I found the hotel noisy. Noise from the plumbing in adjoining rooms and noise from a group of travellers occupying three of the rooms opposite mine .....all coming and going between each others room with the accompanying noise of shutting doors and talking in the corridor.
Some things to like about this hotel and if you can snag a bargain then might be worthy of consideration but I will be looking elsewhere on my future trips to Taipei.
