This was well beyond my expectation. I had to leave my house due to a broken toilet and dreaded having to stay in a dormitory type lodging. I was totally wrong. The room is big enough to be completely functional and comfy. I can hang my clothes and not have to keep them in the suitcase like in other hotels; the desk is large and useable; the bed comfy and the linens soft.
I knew I was going to be staying for a while so I asked to change rooms several times so I could write my review in an honest and transparent manner. Switched rooms three times so I could be at entrance, near the bathroom and at the end. I never had a problem with noise and found consistent value in each.
Bathrooms are shared, but most Asians take their showers at night and Westerners in the morning so the bathroom was unencumbered. There are clean floor matts every morning so when an individual uses one of the four showers, cleanliness is a priority.
It is these kinds of small features that made staying here such a great experience.
FREE TV, WIFI, large bath and face towel and an enormous common area stocked with hot coffee and tea 24/7.
There are also 2 free computers and the BEST THING
FREE WASHER AND DRYER --
NO NEED TO BRING CLOTHES FOR EVERY DAY USE. They are brand new.
You just supply the laundry detergent and that can be purchased from 7-11 just a two minute walk away.
If you have guests coming to Taipei or are a business traveller, this is where you should lay your head.
