6/10 Good

Cigarette smoke smell in the room
2 our of the 5 nights there was heavy smell of smoke. Complained to front desk but they did not do anything. Just sprayed room airfreshener which did not resolve the issue.

Overall good
Overall good stay. Good points: 1) reception staff Howard and Chris were exceptionally good. 2) rooms good size 3) good ice cream shop 4) close to airport MRT Down points: 1) walls a bit thin and can hear noisy neighbours ( plenty of them ) 2) ppl congregate and talk loudly in corridors outside room at 0800 onwards in morning Summary: I used to stay at another hotel chain but now I will definitely strongly consider this next time I stay in TPE .

6/10 Good

the check in was very unfriendly. I had to wait until exactly 3 pm to check in and then there was a rush of all the people waiting. Also, there is no room service despite the fact that it says there is room service on the website. My room had no window and felt very claustrophobic

6/10 Good

Pretty central and walkable to Ximenting - with options of food and shopping. Like the decor and the vibe in the common areas - the theme of seamenship is pretty cool. But functionally in the room, definitely room for improvement. The bathroom and shower area are too small (well, the rain shower is shorter than me... I need to duck to get under it). TV is good with many channels and big. Check in and check out... I don't mind the self-service. Let us know we need the booking # in advance. Many of us just hand over our passport and get checked in when there is a front desk. Last, the Expedia VIP program late checkout was well appreciated!!
