    Good stay

    Nice hotel downtown. No windows industrial style build. Room was clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Parking nearby but not with hotel. 10 min walk from Main Station, close to street market.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Clean hotel. Friendly English-speaking staff. Located in Wanhua (Ximending). Nice craft beer place called the Driftwood attached to the hotel. WiFi is a bit weak, but I hope you’re not going to Wanhua (Ximending) to be stuck in your hotel room on your phone or laptop.

    Exceptional hotel at the heart of Taipei

    For the price we paid for 3 rooms and total of 5 nights, it beat our expectation fair and square, even as last minute booking. It's like back at home, everything was so convenient, from the hotpot restaurant at the street level to the laundry rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors, snack/coffee stand in the courtyard, brewing co next to the lobby. Not to mention all the food and restaurants next to the hotel, too many of them. Plus the bakery on the same street which was the national champion 5 years in a roll. The interior design and decorations will make retro junkies go crazy. The TV on the wall is huge. All the amenities and features in the guest room are so well thought through. Take my words, it's a treasure chest and you will love your stay. I prefer PaPa Whales over Tapei Sheraton which I too stayed for 5 nights. It's just a whole different experience one must have to complete the journey. May the force be with you.

    Tiny Room

    Good location, nice lobby, but room is small and you can hear clearly what people talk next door.

  • 6.0.Good

    The room was nice and clean even bigger than Expected. The temperature in the room always at 21 which is really really cold and can’t be adjusted. The noises from corridor from people walking by and talking is unbearable. Overall it was nice place to stay but I wouldn’t return.
