This hotel has a relatively central location, even though it is not close to any MRT stations.
The best thing about this hotel is probably the service. All the staff members are very attentive and helpful. The rooftop pool on the 40th floor also has an amazing view of Taipei 101. The breakfast buffet offers good food and a really good selection.
What I didn't like so much was that this hotel has been around a while, and you can tell. Our bath tub was yellowish on the bottom and I didn't want to take a bath in it. Our TV was set up at a really weird angle, I guess allowing you to watch it both on the bed and the couch, but I didn't like it. The steam room and sauna facility in the gym also looks old and I did not end up using them, either.
Overall I had a pleasant stay with no problems, but considering the location and that it's quite dated, I think I will look else where next time.
