The room was open and clean. It had a balcony so I could see the surrounding areas. The room has great facilities, iron/ironing board, water heater, coffee/tea. Internet was incredible and accessible all over. More importantly, it was a number of minutes of walking to TICC, Taipei 101 and close enough to night markets and indeed the Elephant Mountain for a great view of Taipei 101 at sunrise or sunset. The staff at the reception were friendly and also helpful. Nice pineapple cakes ready for you upon entry into the room.
