Ark Hotel Chang'an is located in Dong Qu, the eastern district of Taipei, and is within walking distance of two MRT stations. The MRT Nanjing Fuxing Station is a quick 5-minute walk away, while MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station is just 10 minutes away. Much can be reached on foot from the hotel, which is adjacent to Taipei Arena, Breeze Zhong Xiao, and Liaoning street night market. Lots of local food.

The rooms were always spacious and clean. I highly recommend getting the window room as opposed to the windowless room as the view tends to be nice. Also having natural lighting in your room is just better overall. The breakfast tends to be quite lackluster so I’d recommend saving your 200ntd and finding a nice brunch spot nearby.The breakfast was half an egg, orange piece and a strange sandwich. It’s centrally locates so you can take the bus/MRT to Da an Park or go see Taipei 101. Many fun things to do. The staff are all quite friendly except for one thin woman who tends to have bad days and takes it out on friendly customers. The larger staff were all very friendly and professional. Overall this chain is great despite having one negative worker. (To the hotel: try to improve your breakfast options. Give more of a larger portion traditional English breakfast with 2 eggs, toast/ham, cereal, bacon. Also make sure staff are feeling at least neutral or positive. Customers are smart and can tell when someone is negative or simply not trying, it can dramatically affect someone’s stay. Reward the staff that are bright and showing positive leadership). Thank you :)

I booked this hotel purely based on location (I had a dinner appointment at a restaurant on the same street). It was perfectly serviceable but not much more is there to say about it. The room was quite clean, though I could find stray long hairs here and there. Internet connection is decent, though my iPhone had trouble connecting sometimes (a problem that seems quite common as I saw another guest complain about it at the front desk). The small desk in the corner of the room was of a weird height so not very conducive to working. The staff are friendly but their English isn't great so I ended up speaking my poor Mandarin with them to communicate. One thing to note: avoid rooms on the 3rd floor. They basically open out to the main cafe/restaurant area of the hotel. It means you can hear coffee machines making noise as early as 6:30 or 7 am as people come for breakfast. But the bed was quite comfortable, not hard as many hotel beds tend to be in Asia. As another reviewer said, go for it if you get a good price. But it's not worth paying a premium for.

I stay at this hotel regularly and I think some of the super positive reviewers are a bit over the top. This is an average Taiwanese hotel located in a mix-use older building, really should be 3.5 star. If you get a low price, then it can provide good values, but weekends here can more the double the weekday rate, and it can feel really overpriced for what you get. Good: 1) Room is small, basic but mostly clean, good if you are just here to sleep 2) Good location for food, plenty of convenient stores and eateries, and a small night market is just across the street if you are into cheap eats or need a late night snack 3) Internet is decent speed and mostly reliable over my many stays 4) Good basic amenities: small frig, water kettle, bottle water and safe in the room, and coffee and soda machine in common area Neutral: 1) Location is near popular areas but in the mid-point between 2 subway stations, so I would not recommend dragging your luggage to here as it is a long and draining walk 2) Cleanliness of the room can be a mix bag, depend on which housekeeping person cleaned the room 3) Almost no 2 rooms are of the same floor plan, some are decent while others may have very weird layout Bad: 1) Won't let you check in a minute before 3pm. Even for a regular customer like me, they refused to let me check-in early on a very long stay if I arrive on an early international flight... 2) Hotel sells room for hourly use, intended for young people and couples to have intimacy, so you can expect to see young couples come and go...and hear sounds of people getting intimate if you know what I mean 3) Breakfast is weak... It's not a buffet and more of a set breakfast but a very small one. No menu and they just make up what they serve, on the go, using mostly processed food, just heated up in several airfryer ovens. On busy days, they reduce the size even more, so they have enough food to serve all the guests. Portion is very very small, and they cut up everything to create the illusion of more items...just look at the picture I attached, it's a very typical serving. Breakfast is made-to-order, and not ideal if you are in a hurry to go somewhere... Overall, this is a decent place if you get it super cheap, and you should temper your expectations.

We picked this hotel after reading a lot of good reviews but reality is not as good as what we expected. Located not so near to MRT (especially if you are carrying heavy luggage), the building is old and shared with companies and another hotel (which is also fairly common in Taipei), one of the elevator broke down during our stay (which made going up and down takes forever), our bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly (we always found strands of hair in the bathroom not removed), hard to get access to washing machine/dryer (1 machine shared with the whole floor). The worst of all, we extended our stay and the staff gave us significantly higher price. The staff said because "that's the only one room left and breakfast is included". The next morning, we tried to go to breakfast area and were rejected because "you book a cheap room without breakfast option". Good thing: they provide some beverages for free in the common area

Stayed in Ark Hotel for 2 nights in Dec ‘18. Was allocated on 10th floor. Still the good, beds were comfortable, sheets were clean. Don’t expect big rooms, just adequate. Free drinks at lobby. Location is alright - just about 8/10 minutes walk from train station exit 4 (Nanjing Fuxing) They do have strict check in and checkout time though.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, I chose to stay in this hotel with my husband for 4 nights last week and booked via Hotels.com (Ark hotel's own website didn't have rooms available for the dates I wanted). Best tip I got from the reviews was to find for "Horizon Inn" in Google Maps as it is in the same building. Front desk Ark hotel is at 3rd floor. The location is great. Finding food will not be a problem at all. There are lots of 7/11s and Family Marts nearby. The most important factor for me when I look for places to stay is the cleanliness and Ark Hotel did not disappoint (especially the bathroom). Our room (on 11th floor) was cleaned everyday and the bottles of water replenished. Check in and check out was also fast. I would say we were very lucky to have chosen this hotel for our first time in Taipei.

We stayed in a quadruple room during our 1 week stay in Taipei and no complaints!! Location is between 2 MTR station though you will need to walk c.10mins. Location is rather hard to find, but if you ask the taxi driver to use gps it is no issue. Uber pick up also not an issue. Reception on lvl 3 and drinks including tea coffee and soft drinks are available all the time. The only improvement would be the room clean up time..we came back for afternoon nap only to find room is yet to be cleaned.

I was excited to book this hotel for my family. We only were staying 2 nights here and it looked like a food kid friendly hotel with 2 double beds in the room. Cons The hotel isn’t in Uber. Input Horizon Inn and it is the same building. The family room is so small and not well designed. The TV faces the window and faces neither bed. The breakfast is horrible and they tried to say we didn’t pay for our 2 kids to have breakfast. We needed more pillows and they didn’t have any. They offered us hard tea pillows and we had to go down and get it ourselves. Pros It was relatively clean. The front desk ladies were nice. Overall really disappointed. Wouldn’t stay here again.

located right in the middle of two metro stations, you have the freedom to walk either directions and still get to the metro. they are an alley full of mini restaurants, cafes and convenient stores just a a stone throw away, under 5 minutes of walking distance. there is also a bus stop right in front of the hotel that can bring you to the major attractions nearby. If you are a shopper, there are 2 huge malls where you can shop till you drop and it's only 10mins of walk away. Staffs are friendly, and at the given cost, the breakfast was hoenstly considered not bad at all.

Stayed at Ark Hotel last 25-29 January 2018 and I can say that its worth it. Why? We got a family room which has 2 double beds that can fit 4 adults. Room is so compact but clean. The price of the room is a bit cheap compare to other hotels and paid for breakfast too. Breakfast is just okay since its clearly stated that its only like to go breakfast like sandwich with boiled egg, it has no restaurant too so you can eat in the room or in the small lobby. They also have free coffee and tea whole day in the lobby. Staffs are very helpful too there are 2 girls that can speak English very well so no need to worry. They showed us where to eat, where to go and so on. Kudos! They have free laundry too but you have to do it by yourself. (That’s okay!) The location of the hotel is perfect since its just like 5minutes away from the train station, around 15-20minutes away from Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and few minutes away from Din Tai Fung. So overall it’s excellent for me.
