Sunroute Hotel is located right in the middle of two metro stations, Minquan Road West (red and yellow lines) and Zhongshan Elementary School Station (yellow line). If one is heading to the High Speed Rail Terminus, the Shih Lin Night Market or the Daqiaotou conservation area, then the Minquan Road West Station is more convenient. If one is heading to the Guanghua Electronics Mart, Taipei 101 or Maokong Gondola, then the Zhongshan Elementary School Station is more convenient. I personally prefer the latter as it is easy to navigate and has escalators which is convenient for tourists with luggage.
The rooms are similar to other Sunroute properties in Japan but a notch below in terms of cleanliness. Tiny room size and limited amenities are acceptable in expensive Tokyo but less so in Taipei where new hotels with nice rooms at less than USD100 nett per night are popping up every month. We booked a double room here as a last resort based on positive TA reviews as our hotels of choice were unavailable for our travel dates, and were disappointed. We bumped into our former neighbors who were booked here before and after their trip to Kaohsiung; they told us they decided to rebook another hotel for the second leg of their Taipei trip.
The hotel is acceptable only as an overnight pit stop as space is clearly inadequate even for a couple (refer to self explanatory photos). The room is dated, the carpet has stains and the chairs have seen better days. There is no wardrobe, only a short steel bar with four hangers, space for just one 21" suitcase and a pathetically small desk. The bathroom is terribly cramped, though the bidet toilet is a plus. Only two Chinese tea bags and a bottle of mineral water are provided daily, no coffee, and there are only two power sockets in the room.
For properties in the same price point, local hotel chains like City Inn and Forte Orange offer much better value - their hotels are located at the heart of the action in areas like Ximending. The rooms are newer, the bathrooms a tad more spacious and there are more facilities for guests such as common rooms with self-service refreshment bars and self service washing machines and dryers.
