I stayed at the Lion Hotel twice this month—first for four nights, then one more night as I passed through Taipei on my way home. It's a little removed from the city center (hence the great price), but only a short walk from an MRT station. If you're willing to trade travel time for a cheaper hotel, this is a solid choice. The room was comfortable, the staff was extremely pleasant, and the area around the hotel is vibrant and interesting.
However, there were a few things that I wished had been better. The hot water in my showers got warm, but never approached hot. The wifi cut out a lot, which made it difficult for me to get work done. And being sent for breakfast at McDonald's with a hotel coupon was okay the first day—less so the next few.
This was overall a nice hotel at a great price for Taipei, and I'd love to see them make the changes that would elevate them into "I'll always stay there" territory for me. They're not quite there yet.

Me and my missus, a young couple stayed at this hotel. Firstly the staff are amazing, they always get up ready to help you and are always smiling, with no atmosphere of hostility. Secondly despite how small our room was our bed was nice and comfy and the bathroom was very spacious.
Jade hotel is an absolute gem and i would go back to that hotel if i ever go back to taiwan, absolute highlight of our trip.

- 10 minute walk to MRT and very close to night market
- finding the hotel was a little troublesome so I would recommend to get a map of the city at the airport with two languages (one in your mother language, and the other one in the local language) so when you get stuck/lost it is easier to converse with a local. also ask for the hotel's Chinese address.
- it was great that there was a washing machine. I would advise future patrons to bring laundry detergent.
- if I come back to Taipei I would definitely come back to this apartment

Though situated along a quieter street, there are many shops in the vicinity. Short distance (about 3 min walk) to Fuzhong MRT station.
Staff are friendly, helped provide information of where to board airport bus, and suggested various shops to visit in the area. I was presented fast food coupons : )) Saved money on 2 meals.
Room was small (but I had anticipated that) but cosy. Facilities were quite complete, but there isn't any minibar fridge. You have to get hot water from a small pantry outside room (just hot water & drinking water).
