Great Luxury Stay
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

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.

A gem in the heart of Taipei

Location
Centrally located. A comfortable 10-15 minute walk from the bustling Zhongshan metro station and the big department stores, which is a stop away from the Taipei main station interchange (and also walkable to-and-fro via the underground shopping street). The red line gives convenient and direct access to the Shih Lin night market on one end and the upscale Taipei 101 area at the other, while the green line fast-tracks your entry into the hip and happening areas of Xmending and Zhongxiao.

Rooms
Beautifully appointed, well-equipped, and fairly spacious across all room categories. This is what a quality hotel room should look like. The Japanese bath (with accompanying yukata robes) within the room is a rarity among hotels and a definite highlight. Oh, the toilet seat cover also rises automatically when approached - a totally unnecessary feature but it shows the level of quality that the hotel has invested in its rooms.

Go for a parkview room if you can, to brighten up the room and enhance your experience in it. 

Service
Professional and attentive, complete with warm smiles. It is clear that the staff are proud of the hotel, and will try their best to make their guests feel special. 

Food 
Breakfast is served in the form of a compact but complete buffet at the second level overlooking the park. For the rest of the day, you will be well served by the array of food options around the hotel and nearer the Zhongshan metro. Japanese food lovers in particular will be spolit for choice by the many many surrounding izakayas, sushi, and yakiniku restaurants. 

The lobby lounge also provides a pleasing ambience and complimentary refreshments for guests needing a quick recharge or an after-meal rest.

Value-for-money
Compelling value for the quality you are getting, as evidenced by the rave traveller reviews and many awards that the hotel has received over the years.

The hotel is part of the Small Luxury Hotels collection so SLH members may possibly obtain additional perks like early check-ins/late checkouts and room upgrades. Don't hope on it too much though as these perks are entirely at the hotel's discretion (the hotel was unable to provide any meaningful perks for our stay this time for instance, which was a little disappointing but oh well). Still, it is useful to enrol as a member to see if you get lucky. 

An excellent hotel all in all. You will enjoy your stay, period.

We stayed in this boutique hotel for 2 memorable nights. The hotel staff are helpful, detailed oriented, with excellent and personalised customer service. It is in strategic location, nearby to eateries, shopping mall and MTR. We will definitely come back to stay again.

The hotel is very fantastic and comfortable. Everything what you wants is available during your holiday. The room's bathroom has an own mini pool and an intelligent wc with heating & with telephone. Every morning you gets one pcs local newspepar in English language. It will be hanging in your door.
The staff is very helpful and kind with the guests. Very respectful and courteous with everybody. The one of most schockierend thing for me, they are always opening the doors front of me in any cases.
The hotel has a transfer facilities to the airport, which is more than 30 min fare from the hotel.
I'm very recommended for everybody, who are planning to visit in Taipei.

Will definitely stay again
