“Caring staff and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

One of my friend from Taipei recommended this hotel and he made the booking for me. The location was convenient. The rooms are small but cozy. The prices are bit expensive but so is Taipei being the capital region. We had mentioned about our Indian vegetarian habit, and keeping the in mind, the staff managed to offer us the vegetarian dishes specially prepared for our breakfast next day. Thanks to all of them.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the walking park on North are beutiful

Stay here on a short trip with a friend. There is alot of japanese neighbours here, not sure why they like this hotel but even the staff can speak japanese. Decently close to shandao mrt station if you need to travel to other places but note that this is not a main transit station along the blue line. Rooms are decent but not huge and note that complementary water is inside the fridge and the drawer knobs next to your bed are actually light controls.(took a while to figure it out) But I love the shower, strength of the water and heater is great.

You have to walk across the park for at least 10mins if you are looking for food in the day. At night, the same food strip is loaded with hot taiwanese babes (linsen east road) that you have to pay for, but they are really pretty!!!!!

Taxi from taoyuan airport cost about 1100NT which is fairly decent.

Being a typical business hotel, they do provide what you will need and expect from a business hotel. Complimentary bottled water are replenish daily and breakfast was included in our hotel package. Staff are helpful and friendly with recommendation and helping us to make restaurant reservation. Located just a short walk away from the nearest train station, it's v convenient for you to get about everywhere in Taipei itself.

Stayed in the hotel for a night for the new year countdown.
Location of hotel is good as it is near the Taipei main station.

We booked 3 rooms but only 1 room was available for us since we wanted to check-in before their normal check-in time.
Hence we only did the check-in for 1 room and move all our luggages there and will only returned after the countdown concert to do check in for other 2 rooms.

When we returned after midnight, we told the front desk recept that we have not checked into other 2 rooms hence we do not have the room number. We told them my friend's room number for we put all our luggages in the room.
They just pass us the keys to the 3 rooms without verifying our details.
Either they are too trusting or they lack the security verification.

When we pushed our luggages from my friend's room to our room, just before I wanted to open the door using the key, I realised the door was not shut properly.
Thankfully everything seems fine when we went into the room but we had to check under the bed, inside the cupboards in case there is anybody hiding inside.

When my friend went down to asked the front desk reception on why the door was not properly shut before we checked in, the staff informed her that could be the cleaner wanted to air the room. The point is, the door is not left ajar, it was just sitting by the latch but not shut properly. There was no apologies.

To conclude, if security of a hotel is in one of your top priority when looking for a hotel room, this hotel is definitely not one of your choice.

It was at the most popular period that tourist will want to visit Taipei, the new year's eve period. and most of the room prices will definitely be higher than usual. I'd chose Welcome hotel for the location and of course the affordable price during that period.
Welcome hotel is not the usual popular choice, but I personally found that it is not a bad choice.
Located just minutes away from Shangdao Temple Metro station, which connects you to Taipei's shopping areas like Ximending and the east district.
The room seems cosy with the soft lighting with just 2 bed-side lamp and a standup lamp besides a sofa. The bed was pretty spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom seems a little small. Imagine the toilet bowl is just an arm distance to the basin. But this seems fine as I won't be staying in the bathroom most of the time.
Breakfast seems normal, typical Taiwanese spread. I will recommend a better place for breakfast just few minutes walk, but do prepare to queue for your soya bean and buns for around 20mins or so.
Overall the room seems good for me.

Hotel is close to train station, which is handy.
Good size room with complimentary water each day.
The shower and bathroom amenities were good too.

The hotel breakfast was included with our room. We had the impression it was going to be in a restaurant style environment. However, its in a small sized room with about 6 or 7 tables. So you will either have to wait or just eat breakfast somewhere else out of the hotel, most days when busy. They do however have a good variety of food too choose from. Of the 2 times we had breakfast in the hotel, there was different types of food. So not the same everyday I assume.

I would recommend this hotel for the cost and quality of the hotel.
The staff are very friendly too, which spoke English and Japanese.

The room is ok, the breakfast pretty good (but some people will object because it is an Asian breakfast). Biggest problem is cigarette smoke that can be sometimes spreading through the building, especially at night. I guess they can't do anything about that.
