I read up here on the room tips prior to my arrival, and ended up requestin to things from the hotel per email the day before arrival:
1. A corner room
2. A room on the 10th floor
I ended up getting both! Excellent.
And it was very nice. The theme on the 10th floor is very creative and the room was very quiet. The view however, was pretty disappoiting, but I guess it's only so much you can expect for the price (1750 TWD for elite room at Expedia).
The amneties are pretty good, but there is no body lotion or conditioner, and the shampoo and shower gel are in dispenser boxes, which leaves an unessecary cheap feeling to the stay.
I did also find the breakfast quiet disappoiting. It wouldn't cost much to provide more seasonal fruits for instance. When I came 9:30 it was empty for fruits and it wasn't refilled after what I could see.
Probably the best thing with this hotel is however that they provide free self laundry and free detergent - an excellent offer. I advice future guests to use it in the morning or after midnight as it tend to que up around 9pm until roughly midnight. This makes up for the con's for my part at least.
The staff is also very pleasant and the location is OK. You have to walk up and down some stairs if you're arriving from the train station, so unless you have luggage that is easy to carry, I would consider getting a taxi even though it's only a 5 min walk.
