How to Get There
The hotel and its staff deserve all the appreciation and kudos for maintaining a high level of service excellence. From check-in to check-out the attention to detail and the courteous attitude of ensuring guest satisfaction is praise worthy. The hotel is well located in Zhongshan and is about 10 minutes walk to the metro station. Taxis are available at the doorstep and the ever friendly and willing-to-assist concierge will ensure that you are comfortably seated and the driver informed precisely about your destination. The hotel is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group and it lives up to its classification by providing amenities and room furnishings and fittings that mirror a luxury hotel. The heated toilet seat, electronically controlled toilet, sunken bath area, rain shower with good pressured water and spotlessly clean linen are worth a mention. Beds are comfortable and the room temperature can be maintained to your liking. Room insulation was very good as there was no sound despite the fact that we had a street facing room. Vicki and her co-workers helped organize our trips to the museum, Chiang Kai Shek memorial, Juifen, Shifen and Yehliu Geopark all of which are well worth visiting.
The hotel is in close proximity to bars and there are several good restaurants within a short walking distance that offer a wide range of menus to whet your appetite. Breakfast at the hotel is very good and has an adequate choice of western and far eastern food. Staying at San Want Residences was a pleasure. We shall return someday.
The best part of San Want is the service. They are always very helpful. On our visit, Vicki was so helpful with transportation and dining questions, and Allen was also helpful with planning.
This hotel is located fairly close to the main Taipei train station (~10 min cab ride) which is great if you are going to explore other parts of Taiwan. While the rooms aren't brand new, they are cleaned and maintained well. The hotel breakfast is convenient, but it's not as good as venturing out for some authentic Taiwanese breakfast food.
Friendly and helpful staff always make such a difference to a hotel stay, and that’s where San Want stands out. My friend and I felt welcome from the moment we stepped in until we checked out. The room was fine (if cozy) - Japanese toilets are always fun for western travelers 😊 Good location opposite Linsen Park, easy walk to the nearest metro line station. Good on-site gym too.
Only quibble is that there isn’t really a bar. You can buy drinks but they’re served in the breakfast/dining area, so you’re seated at a table to drink, which feels a bit too formal. A separate bar - ideally high up for city views - would’ve made this hotel perfect.
Still happy to give it 5 stars anyway, just for the professionalism and hospitality of the staff.
Stayed here for two nights (over weekend) just before the new year. While the stay was fairly pricy, we were really happy with our stay. The location of the hotel was quite convenient (a few subway stations within walking distance). The room was spacious and very comfortable. The décor was very modern, clean and chic. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was of good size and very well designed. The Wifi in the room worked quite well. The room rate came with breakfast, which was really more of a generous buffet brunch. In addition to typical breakfast food, there were always a number of hot meat dishes/salad/soup, etc. We took advantage of that everyday before heading out. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Overall, a great experience.
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The staff was great. The room was large and very comfortable. The room amenities were top of the line. The hotel lounge was very good. The exercise facilities were very good. The breakfast selection was good. This was a layover stay in Taipei and I can't find anything wrong with the hotel. I would give this hotel the top rating in all categories but I'm not sure of the location in relation to the city tourist spots. I would stay here again.
