Nice hotel with privacy. Booked a deluxe room and was totally awed by the bathtub next to bed. A great view too from the room. Staff are friendly and ever ready to help when ask for directions.
Bus stop is located less than 5 minutes walk away. Fisherman Wharf is just nearby and it's safe to take a walk there even though at night. Along the way there, will pass by some seafood restaurants. A nice evening stroll after dinner.

I will certainly come back to Aroma Hotel if tour Taipei again. Hotel room is big attached with herbal spa and sauna. Room is fully equipped. Stuffs are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent with special order of dim-sum and seafood omelette. It is convenient to get there with public transport at Hongsulin MRT and bus S23. Hotel also provided with free shuttle service to Danshui MRT station.

While the hotel is a bit inconvenient in terms of location, the friendly staff, private onsen (hot spring fed tub, it's piped from the spring into the hotel) in your room all add to the experience. The room was generally well made up, amenities provided were decent for the price paid.
Some bad points were that the 'double bed' was literally double beds, they'd pushed 2 single mattresses together, which led a bit of a gap in the middle. The glass panels separating the bedroom from the tub area wasn't exactly clean, and had visible handprints when I checked in.
Other than that though, the room was great! Just be ready to catch a cab both ways if you're planning to head to Tamsui (淡水) for the tourist experience since the walk from the nearest metro station (about 10-15 mins), whereas the journey there takes another 20 mins.
My experience is coloured by the fact that it was the last leg of my journey, and I'd been walking a whole lot in the prior 5 days.
I'd still recommend the hotel if you want a hot spring that's away from the crowds at Beitou or Xinbeitou (it's a different experience if you're looking for those Japanese style open air hotsprings.)
