Excellent facility and quality

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Quality and cleanliness.
Cons: Staff at the counter to assist.
Location: Shilling night market.
Value for money. Excellent quality and cleanliness. The only disadvantage that you have to contact owner to access hotel. No staff will entertain at the lobby. No baggage reservation allowed. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay.

I would stay here again if the odor was eliminated

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Cons: 1) This isn't what you'd call a full hotel because there is no reception desk and there is no staff present. To enter the building you need to call the staff to buzz you in, same thing for check-in as well. 2) As you walk into this hotel there is a really foul smell of gasoline/car exhaust. It might be because the air conditioners are positioned close to the street next to an auto repair shop. 3) There is also a smell in the room that is a combination of car exhaust fumes and mildew (probably from the shower as there is not a proper fan system to suck the moisture out after a shower). Pros: 1) Convenient location. 5 to 10 minute walk from Xingtian MRT station. 2) Located away from the touristy parts of Taipei if that's what you want. 3) The staff speak pretty good English. 4) Room was very clean and quite spacious. 5) Room was newly pretty new renovated. 6) 24 hour access to the front entrance 7) Air conditioner is extremely quiet and cool.

It's a self service hotel,15 min walk fr subway

Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: hotel facility and furniture are new.
Cons: cleaning
If you are visiting Taipei in summer and rely on public transit, it's a bit far to walk to the hotel from the subway station. I took a cab after getting off the subway as it's just impossible to walk in the sun for 15 min with a luggage. There is no elevator. It's a self service hotel, no staff around to help you. everything is done over the phone. I entered the room, there are random business cards on the TV stand and a toothbrush in the shower room from the last guest. not really pleased with the cleaning. I like the room has actual windows with lots of sunshine and air de-humidifier.

Excellent Self-Serviced Hotel

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: Room condition, location.
Cons: To have at least one person staffed the whole building so that guests need not to call for just about everything.
Location: In the heart of the city and a 10-15 minute walk to metro station. Many convenient stores/restaurants nearby.
The only reason that I do not give a five star to this hotel is that this hotel does not have a conventional lobby, front desk, and staff. You do your own check-in-and-out. You need to call someone to open the front door when you get back or for about any other things. Sometimes it is hard to get a hold of someone when you get back during late night and that is frustrating. Everything else is good.

No hotel signboard and no formal staff to do check in. You may even need to wait one minute to open the hotel door.

Will be back again

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Location: Well located for us. Nice bar across the street with darts, lots of Chinese breakfast places, and 10-15 minute walk to the red/orange MRT line.
The hotel staff were easy to work with and accommodating. It wasn't a typical hotel experience, as there isn't a front desk with on-site staff, most communication is handled over the phone, and upon check-in, we were told to find our key card hidden around the lobby. But, hey, it worked out. Staff over the phone were able to help us locate extra towels, figure out logistics, and let us into the hotel. The room, especially the bathroom, was really clean. Awesome showers, great TV and free bottles of water everyday! Though thee air in the room would be muggy when we came back to the room, we just turned on the humidifier and everything was a-ok.

Low cost guest house with good potentials

Posted Jan 15, 2014
Pros: The room cost and cleaness
Cons: Not much service, no information or leaflets provided. A lift would be helpful.
Location: It is about 5-10 minutes walk to the subway station, there are a lot of local restaurants nearby, plenty of choice for food.
It is a brand new guest house. The room was very clean with good space and window (next to to a old building, no views) There are 3 floors, but no lift, you have to carry your own luggage. There is not much service as the owner does everything herself (receptionist and cleaner), reception was only a desk and a sofa. It located on an older street, but plenty of local restaurants nearby, once you get used to it, everything works fine. The price was very good.
