Located right in Ximending District and only 5 minutes walk to subway station. The hotel has one of the biggest rooms that I have seen in Taipei. It has a simplistic yet modern design. The toiletries are particularly good and are made in Taiwan. In short, highly recommended this hotel as the choice for your stay in Taipei.
