I definitely recommend this hotel. I stayed here during a difficult period in my life. The staff were very accommodating with my many requests. Maggie the Director, is a particularly lovely and offered to help me even after I left the hotel. The breakfast area is very relaxing and the breakfast is above average.Pretty good value for money. The only regret is that some of the rooms do not have a view but were described on hotels.com as "street view". The staff immediately changed my room upon request. They and I informed hotels.com so hopefully it will be changed soon!
Had short stay in this hotel.. I hv to say their staff especially mr bill , miss Elaine and mr Ryan were super helpful...breakfast was great..rooms was relatively small but very clean.. excellent location as it’s easy for us to move around .. mrt was 200 m away from our hotel..overall 👍👍
I stayed at the RF hotel in Taipei for 2 nights. The hotel is down a side street from the main traffic road. The check in reception is on level 7 of the hotel. Check in was fast. I was given room 606 ON Level 6. The room was very small the walls had signs of dampness. The shower and toilet was a decent size. Small fridge complimentary bottled water, hot water jug and tea/coffee. No cupboard/wardrobe just a rail above the tea/coffee station. I had to buy bug spray at the 7/11. Had an issue when I checked in. Wifi was good in the room. Breakfast was included and I was surprised the choice was decent. Its is easy walking distance to cafes bars and restaurants. The photos on the site are not what I experienced with my room. Possibly ask for a better type room. I would choose another hotel if I was re-visiting Taipei.…
The deluxe double room was overrated. The bed in this class of rooms was just too hard, we changed rooms twice and ended up taking a twin bed room in the end. The deluxe rooms we went to all had connecting rooms. The connecting door is not sound proof at all. We were woken up at 1 am by guests in the other room returning from outside. We could hear all their conversations in detail (privacy issues) as well as sounds from the bathroom. The hotel staff was very helpful and kept apologizing but that will not solve this noise problem. Hotel management should look into these issues. The twin room we stayed in was small. The shower area had one side protruding wall at almost eye level, making the space very small, I had to be constantly be mindful not to knock into anything as I took a shower. It was a bad hotel experience.…
This hotel is in a good location and is acceptable for solo travelers. But the room was much smaller and dirtier than it seemed online. WiFi did not work most of the time, and there was no other available signal around. I would not recommend unless you're getting a really good deal here.
VALUE FOR MONEY The hotel area is very convenient. Near MRT and surrounded by nice restaurants. The Staff are very accommodating and willing to guide you when you ask directions. I had difficulty in internet access in my room on the first day. The next morning , the hotel staff installed router in my room and was able to access WIFI. During checkout, the staff volunteered to call a Taxi for me and they accompanied me downstair and wait for a taxi and they gave directions where Iam heading. Its really the staff of this hotel who did a great job and make me feel very satisfied in this hotel. For the hotel Staff, Keep up the GOOD JOB !!!!! Your customer service is SUPERB !!!! November 7-10. Rm 519
I chose this hotel due to the location, price and a few pretty good reviews. I expected it to be fairly small given the price, which it was. But that's OK. I didn't hold out much hope for the breakfast and it turned out that it was only average, but that is also OK. What I wasn't expecting was the lack of a proper bed! It was just a mattress on the floor. I have a bad leg and as there wasn't a chair either I had nowhere to sit in the room. Subsequently I found it impossible to get up from the mattress every morning. I just wished I had known this before choosing this hotel.
Overall, hotel prices in Taipei are low for UK travellers - with the W and Hyatt around £250 a night... but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t shop for a bargain. The RF Hotel occupies 3 floors of a modern block - right in the heart of Taipei. You are a 7 minute (£2.20) cab ride to 101 and right on the East-West running blue (Bannan) MRT Line. Near rooms, simple reception and breakfast bar - great value for money - often less than £50 a night.
My family and I stayed here for over 2 weeks last month. The room was clean and a decent size. While the room did look a bit like they were undergoing a renovation...no fancy headboard or modern decor in the room we were in. But was told that it was the largest room they had and we needed to fit a baby crib (which was thoughtfully provided along with a baby tub). The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The kitchen staff went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed for our son. The manager and front desk staff were all incredibly kind and helpful during our entire stay. The location couldn’t have been better and at a great value price!
Can't image the room is so small. Include the toilet it has only 100 sq ft (maybe even less than that). When you enter the room, it's also the bed (mattress on the ground) and you don't have any space to walk even. The toilet is very small and no place to take a bath. There is only a shower head and after you took a bath, the whole floor is wet and it is quite danger. The breakfast is just ok and nothing special. The location is good as you only need to walk 5 min to reach the underground train. And it was terrible that a man knocked my room at midnight 12pm. We didn't open the door and the man went away.
