Stayed for 4 nights on a business trip. Spotted the hotel after researching on trip advisor and was not disappointed, so asked office manager to book this one. The Evergreen hotel chain is owned by the Eva Airways holding company so there were also shuttle coaches from the airport. Centrally located with the nearest MRT subway station about 4-5 minute walk right out of hotel.
On arrival, walked into reception area which was air conditioned with marble decor and a grand piano in the middle. Reception was on the right, with 2 staff who were very attentive - despite it being close to midnight. After check in, we went to our rooms which were on the 14th floor served by 2 large lifts.
We had been upgraded due to overbooking and I was not disappointed. The room was large, air conditioned, very clean and well kept with kingsize bed, desk with free wifi or ADSL access, fax machine and most useful, international multi plug sockets for both 110 and 220V systems. Large flat screen TV on wall with DVD/Video opposite bed. Sofa and table in room with fresh fruit and there was also a table area with mini bar and tea making facilities. Bathroom had jacuzzi bath, shower (pressure was very good) double sink and toilet with electric gadgets such as heated seat and bidet feature. Overall all mod cons.
Breakfast was very good and held in spacious restaurant area on the 2nd floor. They had a plentiful choice of English, continental or Far Eastern, lots of staff available to assist with coffees etc. Newspapers were available if you did not have a complimentary paper by your door each morning.
There was a gym on site, but unfortunately did not try this out. However I would expect it was to a good standard as everything else was.
There was no official bar however you only had to ask reception and they brought you drinks out to your table which were a side part opposite reception.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. They are in a very good location and have addressed all the fundamentals a westerner would expect when travelling. I found the Taiwanese in general were very customer service minded and the staff here were no exception.
