I came here on a business trip. While the hotel looks a bit dated and is probably the least luxurious Shangri-la I've been in, it is a very practical option for visiting companies located in the area.
I was pleasantly surprised by how cheap the lunch buffet is: something like 30USD or less for a pretty sumptuous lunch buffet with unlimited Movenpick icecream.
The hotel room is spacious and well-equipped for people who have work. There was no short of power outlets and the wifi was fast.
The downside is that the hotel is not located in a particularly interesting neighborhood. Just lots of office buildings nearby. We asked the concierge for restaurant recommendations, and they didn't have anything for us within walking distance. We were sent to Taipei 101, which is a sort taxi ride away.
