Not bad. I guess you're getting what you paid for. Decently comfortable, but doesn't feel super clean. The front desk was nice! The location is probably the best part of staying at Charming Castle Hotel, close to a lot of hip and happening areas of Taipei.

Been to Taiwan over 20x and this is the only hotel that I keep going back to. It has everything if you spend time to explore.(Provided if you do not mind walking a little..) One of the best hidden locations...

Okay hotel.

Not too expensive, hotel was 10-15mins walk from Taipei Main Station, not many eateries in the surrounding area. Breakfast was porridge with basic Taiwanese vegs and buttered toast. Bed was a little hard but otherwise room was okay. In overall, just alright for a short stay.

Old conditioned hotel

A pretty old conditioned hotel, however, staffs are helpful and polite, needs renovation soon or else it will lose its competitiveness. Surrounding by lots of nice restaurants from low to high price, and some night clubs for men to explore.

Served the purpose

This hotel had good location near train station and it was just a bed for a night to us. It worked but was unremarkable, good or bad. We were in and out so fast it is difficult to give detailed review, but nothing extreme to report.

Stay away from this place

Posted Nov 4, 2014 on Hotels
There's not a lot to like about this place. The actual rooms do not look like anything in the pictures. Its old, its dirty, and very uncomfortable to stay at. Walls were very thin as well. You could hear the people next door flushing their toilet.

Relatively a good stay.

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: The cozy and relaxing environment, and friendly approachable staffs.
Cons: The variety of food for breakfast buffet should be increased.
Location: There is a mini concert together with a flea market every Saturday at the nearby open field, on the way to ShanDao Temple station.
There are a number of convenience shop nearby the hotel. The hotel staffs are also very friendly and helpful, and making our stay enjoyable. The room is relatively small but it is cozy and the facilities are well maintained. However, it is quite a distance from the nearby train stations, about 15-20 minutes walk.
