Great hotel but a pigs ear to find
Very contemporary once you got there.
You know I booked it not knowing the city. It was between the Amba and Puri. Taipei is not the easiest of places to navigate. And the google maps that link in with the bookings are rubbish. They seem to conveniently erase metro stations and prominent buildings of note. So when you are looking at hard copies of maps AND. The google maps you are completely thrown. It doesn’t help that reception is at 5 th floor the hotel being above a fairly non descript shopping mall. I wastedover an hour trudging the streets trying to find it and even afterwards when I went back was having difficulty getting my bearings and, you know, I am usually spot on with maps and directions.
Right in the middle of Ximending. This place is a good location for eating, shopping and there's taxi and the MRT is readily accessible. Staff is friendly and helpful who will go extra mile for you. I really love this place and will definitely stay here again!
