Location: It is the center of the Taipei. Very near the Shilin Market (free bus is also available to the Shilin Market). Hotel is in the middle of a small forest. Taxis are available 24 hours.
Design and rooms: Design of the hotel excellent, like a museum. But hotel has two parts. One of them is main building, another is additional building. Addiitional buildind is a bit far away the main building. Especially you have children ask the reception to confirm your rooms. Rooms are clean and not small.
Foods: Breakfast is not suitable for me, if you like far east kitchen and foods you like so much but for me it is not fine. You can find some kinds of cheese and fruits.

Room tip: Chhose the room in the main building.

The hotel is very old. Can hear the vehicles through the window. All the restaurants are superb:- Cantonese, western, buffet, best in the town. Very friendly and dedicated staff. Everybody take pride at his/her work.

Room tip: Book early.

Strong impression of the old days when stepped in the lobby. Room is old-style even all the power switches are the very old type. Anyway, the services are very good. Staff took us to the room, and explained the history of the building, and how to operate the room. The red bean cake at Chinese restaurant is highly recommended.

It was clean and newly renovated. Hotel staffs were excellent. They went above and beyond helping me to ship a package to China. Breakfast buffet was good with both Western and Eastern food. Lobby was uniquely decorated.
