“Snazzy and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

For westerners, the name brings up images of Robin Hood and his forest retreat and this is a quiet retreat with all the amenities in a very busy city. I can't judge it's value in comparison to others since it was booked by work, but it seemed reasonable. I would recommend it and stay again.

My second stay in this hotel, requested for a room not facing the main road and it's definitely much better. Very convenience location with easy access to MRT and bus. There is bus just across the street that bring you to the night market. For sure, it will be one of the hotel on my repeat list if I am going to Taipei again.
Breakfast is still good as usual but the weather is too hot during my stay in taipei, not much appetite for eating, too bad!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a business trip.

The staff here are all fluent in English and Chinese. They are always well-staffed, either at the pick-up/drop-off area, front desk, concierge, restaurants. There was never a time where i had to wait in line. Staff were friendly and always helpful.

Room was clean and spacious (i slept in a room with double bed). Plenty of toiletries provided and towels provided. Rooms are cleaned twice a day. There is free wifi for guests and the signal is strong throughout the hotel.

What i loved most was that POWER SOCKETS ARE CONVENIENTLY LOCATED!! Other than the desk area where i usually use to plug in my laptop, i always had trouble finding places to charge my phone and ipad. In other hotels, i had to resort to lying on the floor to reach those that were under the bed, under the drawers or unplugging bedside lamps etc. Sherwood had not 1 but 2 empty power sockets above the bedside table. AMEN TO YOU FOR PUTTING YOURSELF IN CUSTOMERS' SHOES!

There is a Family Mart and a 7-11 right behind the hotel and several restaurants around it.
Taxi drivers were familiar with the hotel location as long as you told them its Chinese name. There is a subway station within 5 mins walk from the hotel.

Visited the gym as well. Only issue with it is that it opens at 6am and closes at 11pm. In other hotels i've visited, gyms are open 24 hrs for hotel guests. ** SHERWOOD, if you're reading this, PLS CHANGE THIS. You'd be perfect if you do!!

I always stay in this Hotel during my trip to taipei. The simple reason, its close to my office there. However, on top of it....this hotel is good. Almost all Staff is fluent in English and really helpful, for instance they will always escort you to the elevator and ask how do you stay during check out.

Location is far from downtown, but close to the main station if you plan to travel to other city using High Speed Train...it will be convinient. Taipei can be very rainny in some month, and this hotel provide free umbrella to be borrowed by guest.

Breakfast buffet served not much choice of food and also same food everyday. If you stay more than 3 days, I bet you will be boring with the breakfast. However, the Japanese and Italian restaurant in the hotel is excellent. Definetly something to try !!

Room Tip: If you travel more than 2 nights, I wil suggest you to exclude breakfast from your room package. Hen...

Stayed one night in this hotel and at first, was a little concerned as it was booked for me by our office in Taipei. Not being familiar with the name, I was worried.

Turned out I had no need to be concerned. This is as established, but very good hotel. I experienced gat service, an excellent nights sleep, very comfortable bed and rooms, and a convenient location for attending business meetings across the city. The staff speak excellent English and went out of their way to accommodate requests.

Starbucks within two blocks, convenient eating establishments nearby.

Great hotel for business or traveling for pleasure.

Whilst this hotel may not have the latest gadgets or new renovation, the rooms are well maintained, comfortable and spacious. Staff are extremely friendly and always ready to help. There are 2-3 convenience stores in the vicinity which is common in Taipei city. Local and foreign cuisine restaurants are within walking distance. The subway station is approx 8-10 mins walk which may not be convenient to some. would recommend Sherwood hotel if one needs to be in this location.

I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel while in Taipei on business. This hotel is very western-friendly (everyone speaks English), is incredibly well maintained and clean throughout, and has great food. The breakfast buffet was the largest I had ever seen, with all types of cuisine from the east and the west. The Italian restaurant on the 1st floor puts nearly every other Italian restaurant I've eaten at to shame. The bar on the 2nd floor is a nice relaxed place to have a drink and take in part of a World Cup match - great bar and huge leather chairs to sit in.

My room was enormous for big city standards, and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. If there's one issue with this hotel, it's just that I had a bit of a hard mattress (although I slept well as you can't hear ANYONE outside your room). A little anachronism was the actual physical metal key I had for my room. No bother, just a quaint thing I haven't seen in a while.

The Internet was blazing fast here, and the location is ideal for downtown Taipei attractions, although you may want to opt for a quick taxi (always ready outside) to some things, like Taipei 101.
