Opt for a Higher Floor

Some guests mentioned that the basement rooms can be small and lack natural light, so consider choosing a room on a higher floor for a better experience.

Explore Nearby Attractions

The hotel is conveniently located near Ximending Night Market and within walking distance of Lungshan Temple and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, making it a great base for exploring the area.

Consider Noise Levels

Several guests noted that the soundproofing in the rooms is not the best, so light sleepers may want to bring earplugs or consider requesting a quieter room location.

Check-In Flexibility

The hotel strictly enforces a 3:00 PM check-in time, so plan your arrival accordingly as there is little flexibility for early check-ins.

Variety in Breakfast

While the hotel offers breakfast, some guests mentioned that the menu remains the same every day, so those staying for an extended period may want to explore other dining options in the area.

Accessibility for Senior Guests

The hotel is around a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest MRT station, so guests with mobility concerns or senior citizens may want to consider this when planning their stay.

Unique Aesthetic

The hotel's industrial-style design may not be to everyone's taste, as some guests found it to be too dim or reminiscent of a bygone era, so consider this aspect when booking.

Staff Service

While many guests praised the staff for being accommodating and responsive, a few mentioned encountering unkind or unhelpful attitudes, so be prepared for potential variations in service.

Room Size Consideration

Some guests found the rooms to be small, especially for couples with multiple pieces of luggage, so consider this when booking to ensure a comfortable stay.

Smell and Ventilation

A few guests reported issues with sewer smells and ventilation, particularly in basement rooms, so guests may want to inquire about room location and ventilation options.
