If you like run dow, mold, unclean bad breakfast this is your place to goThe worse hotel i have ever been in. A lot of black algea in bathroom, wall paper hanging loose, carpet schreded, but overall unclean and neglected. Not at all what is shown on internet. Bathroom ceiling at 1.90 m, shower at 1.60m. I am 1.96m tall. Breakfast is minimal asian. Smelly bed linen. Advise, dont go there. Enteance is poor snd hitel is above a commercial building.
You get what you pay forLocation: Couldn't be better. You are right beside the train station. A 15min walk to the next station and you have a whole load of food choices around the area. The back lanes of the hotel are also littered with small shops that sell food and other stuff. Very very convenient location. Check-in: Staff are very friendly and helpful. They provided excellent service. Room: Small. Pictures really don't portray how tiny the room is. Also, the room is extremely dirty. The couch looked extremely dusty with stains. We didn't dare to sit on it. I flipped the stool over and i saw a whole layer of dust underneath. Behind the TV was also caked with dust. The carpet looked quite gross also. However, if you don't go looking around, behind and under stuff, you wouldn't see the dust. I guess the room is quite old already.
Shameful standards for TaipeiIt's shameful for this hotel to even advertise itself as such - I've seen better standards in many hostels and private homestays. The first room they showed us had such a pungent smoking odor that you couldn't even remain in the room. The same scent lingers in the corridors. Inside the room, everything was dirty. Everything. There's black mold growing in the shower and between the mirror and the sink. The walls are all stained, and when I wiped the nightstands with a towel, it came away black. There was a used and empty water bottle to greet us beside a full one. The ceilings are low and stooped, so take a care if you're claustrophobic. I wore shoes or slippers the entire time, and put a towel down on the floor before stepping into the shower. But really, even if the location is central, I couldn't ever recommend this hotel. If you want central, be prepared to pay a bit more. Otherwise the MRT is fast and affordable in Taipei, so book a bit outside of the main areas for better value. Staying at Eastern Star was an unhygienic and disgusting experience; I can't believe this hotel exists inside such an orderly and pleasant city.
Great locationThe hotel is a bit run down but it was clean enough. The location is great. You could not ask for a more central location for this price. The front desk staff was really helpful and polite. Overall it was what I expected for the cost in that area. If you are looking for a cheap, no frills place to stay in the heart of Taipei, this is a good choice.
Very good location, clean roomsThe hotel is very good located near the Bannan line of the Taipei subway which is the best choice for travelling around the city. Actually the whole hotel is in the 11th floor of old and rusty building. The staff is very helpful and nice. The room was cleaned every day and there are also free bottles of water, tea, instant noodles and Taiwanese soft drink. In the small street between the hotel building and building with Zara shop are many small food takeaways with great and cheap noodles or grilled pieces on the stick. The breakfast was very Taiwanese standard - bowl of rice, sausages, ham and egg with variation of pickles and vegetables. The furniture and the shower were very old and really need some innovation. But if you spend in the room only night it is quite good. Also if your room is.oriented to the street (with Taipei 101 view) you can hear the car traffic.
