Good budget choice and good locationThe Royal Hotel on Huaning St. (華寧街）is located close to many transport options, chief among these being Taibei Main Train Station (regular & bullet train), Taibei MRT Station, Taoyuan MRT Station, and Taibei Bus Station. The building is well-kept, although it is showing some age. Nevertheless, the management keeps it neat and clean, and the knick-knacks in the lobby are charming and quaint, somewhat similar to one's memories of a favorite maiden aunt. The facilities are sufficient for travelers who need a hotel for one, two, or more nights. It is near the numerous underground "malls" that surround the stations on all sides, and that extend out-of-sight up and down major roads. The clerks in the mall stores are unfailingly polite, and ever so eager to relieve the customer of any extra cash yearning to be free. Dining options range from really good Taiwan street food to noodle/dumpling fast food storefronts to sit down restaurants and, not far away, more expensive joints that take themselves quite seriously, but do provide good food. The hotel attracts a range of guests; a large proportion are middle-aged women traveling with friends or daughters, or so it seemed. This is a good sign, because it is an index of perceived safety and comfort. It's a good lodging for the area and the price. Certainly the least appealing aspect is that interior rooms are windowless, which imposes a certain kind of unease for a guest not accustomed to this. However, anyone who knows hotels in Taipei knows that this is no uncommon "feature", and that it is a direct imposition of construction practices, not of preference.
Central location at Taipei Main StationCity Inn 1 is always my no. 1 choice in all my past years stay in Taipei! Not able to get a room, decided to try out Royal Hotel which is next to City Inn 1. Room size is manageable and equipped with safe deposit room, small wardrobe, bar fridge.Free laundry service with no detergent provided and there is free water cooler/coffee machine located on the 2nd floor. From the Taipei Main station and if you have heavy luggage, suggest you should take exit M5 with escalator and at traffic junction across the ShinKo shopping mall. Turn around towards Huaining Street.
Central and budget friendlyRoyal hotel is located opposite the bus station. We got the family room which was good for 4 people. There was kettle insude which was nice if you want to make cofee. Nice think about the hotel was that there is a cofee machine at the lobby where one can drink for free. The breakfast was simple but i guess that is how the taiwanese usually have their breakfast. I suggest you to have breakfast around 7 am as there is not enough seats.The staff can speak a bit of English. Good thing that Meindy or Mindy one of the partners was extra nice , she spoke English very well, she walked us to the places near our hotel where we should eat, things we should try near the area like the delicious beef noodle soup in the alley. She also helped us to buy medicines for my mom.. i suggest everybody to try the hot and creamy Japanese cake which was sold in the street near the pharmacy for only 13 NTD, it tastes exactly like the ones sold in Japan.
Value for $ for budget travellersRooms and clean but could be improved further. I stayed 3 nights in 3 different rooms. 1st night is room for 3 in Rm302. Nice and clean. 2nd nite move to room for 2 as my son went back to his appt. Stay in rm 610 and was shock to see its run down, towels were not so clean. Rooms was not properly clean. We complain to front desk the next morning and was put in rm602 and was relieve its better Breakfast area is small, food is limited but good enough for me as long as there is bread and coffee
All what you need for your Taipei stayComparing what you pay to what you get , It is the best place ever . Even I stay without window room , no problem , clean hotel , good size room , coffee machine and water , washer and dryer each floor . Reasonable breakfast , location is very good , next to Taipei main station , and main airport bus station . Above all this , very nice staff , all of them are very friendly and helpful.
