The reviews point to one thing- its old but its clean. But with the Agoda price of just about US$ 60 a night, I took the chance. Hotels in Taipei have been very pricey nowadays and a clean decent hotel on good surroundings with a free buffet breakfast is worth a try.
While the building is outdated, the corridors, bathrooms and lobby have been refurbished. The room is really clean, forgot about the furniture which is really outdated. Room smells clean and fresh, despite the old stained carpet. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. This hotel is frequented by Japanese tourists, so the breakfast is a fusion of Chinese, Japanese and American; a bonus for the price you paid. The area is very nice, with small restaurants, supermarkets and a street food area where you can try authentic Taiwanese local food. Its about 10 minutes walk to the nearest MRT station, so going around is easy. While wifi is only available at the lobby, it is super fast by Taiwan standard.
