This hotel was included in the price of our tour. Our first choice of hotel was full and so we were asked to pay an extra fee for this "upgraded" hotel. Upon arrival we found a dated hotel but with pleasant staff. The room turned out to be very old and didn't even have a window - although there were...

Taipei is one of the best cities in the world. It exceeds the standard on food, access, price, things to do, things to see, friendliness by far. But be fair, the state of the median hotel in Taipei is sorely lacking from an international standard. In most cities, you'll find that an average 3-star hotel would be similar to a...

This time, as numerous other times, I had a very good time while staying at the First Hotel in Taipei. The First Hotel and its staff, in all these years in general but in this year [October 2014] in particular, have always were extremely helpful and friendly. I do feel that the First Hotel is indeed "my home away from...

For a first trip to Taipei, this hotel in my eyes, is just OK. It is definitely does not fit my description of a fancy hotel, but for a place to stay for evenings, it suits the purpose. There are a couple of fast food places and shops within walking distance (5 to 15 minutes walk) and there is a...

My first trip to Taipei and booking a hotel was not easy task since I don't know a word of Mandarin and it seems like all the budget hotels and guesthouses does not have an English as a language option in their official web sites. A friend finally recommended this hotel and I made the reservation with his help (translating...

After reading mixed review about this hotel, I decided to try staying here to experience it for myself. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the low to medium budget traveller. We paid $85 US/night, and in my opinion it is well worth the money. Rooms are adequate, not super high end but very comfortable. Lots of space to put...

I stayed in this hotel for one night. To my surprise I was upgraded to a very spacious suit on 9th floor with beautiful Chinese silk embroidery pieces on the walls. The rooms are very comfortable and bathroom has separate shower and bathtub. The location is great and this is a very nice Japanese style restaurant downstairs. The hotel accommodate...
