The availability of variety for food and drinks in the same building were great when we were too tired to come up with somewhere to go for food. Location was awesome for shopping and some of the the big sites. Very close to the metro, but cabs are so inexpensive and accessible that we were able to get those to head to destinations too far to walk.
We were bummed that the mineral pools were not open during our January stay. There was no advance warning on their website about it being seasonal or under construction.
A comfortable choice of accomodation in Taipei especially the nearby location of Ximending area. The Xiu Nam Men subway station is very close to the hotel with 5 minutes walk. It should be convenient to go to Taipei 101 far from a few subway stations.
