Great accommodation in the city with complimentary mini bar & wireless internet access (very important)! Just 8 mins walk to nearest MRT station at Yong Chun station along the blue line.
Stay was as good as the Sheraton Taipei! Great amenities in the room, bed was real comfy and huge. Breakfast wasn't something you wana specially wake up for though.
They even had a washing machine and dryer in one of the cupboards which was real helpful! Lurve the bathroom, and the tub which had a TV for you to soak away in the night. Located just next to Primo, for those interested to try out Taiwanese night life.
