Hotel is situated in the heart of Taipei city and the area is bustling with life. Many shopping places nearby and subway is walking distance. Good service, rooms are spacious, clean, lots of light and well maintained. Staff is courteous. About 45 minutes from international airport but definitely recommended whether business or pleasure. My package included breakfast and there are two dining options with sufficient spread. Will definitely stay here every time.

The staffs are nice and flexible check in time. That’s a bonus services. Keep up the awesome work. I would give services 5⭐️ but not the room that I stayed. My room is on 12th floor right beside elevator. I could hear the elevator noise come up and down every time it moved. My balcony facing inside the hotel which is a buffet restaurant on the first floor. I heard every dishes noise when the restaurant open and it opens at 6am. It was not a pleasant stayed.
