Old hotel. Smokey hallway. Great location & staff.
CONS: (1) It's an old hotel with old facilities. Wallpaper was buckling in places.The moldy spot near the tub faucets was gross. (2) Strong smell of cigarette smoke in the hallway, which seeps into our room if we turned on the bathroom vent. Thus we had to keep the vent off and A/C on. (3) You have to leave your key with the front desk when you leave for the day. Not sure if all hotels in Taiwan require this. Pros: Fantastic location, right next to New Beitou MRT, 24 hour supermarket & McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, convenience stores & Watson's toiletries store. Our quadruple room was very big. We had floor space for 4 twin airbeds in addition to the 2 queen beds provided (if the hotel allowed for that many additional guests). Bedding was good quality, warm & comfy. Free breakfast was decent. There are almost no Western food options, so just a warning to those who aren't used to porridge & Chinese food for breakfast. Staff was very friendly.
