I stayed at this hotel for four nights on my recent trip to Taiwan. Part of Taiwan’s Beauty Hotels chain, it was highly rated on booking.com and it didn’t disappoint.
I saw a couple of negative comments on booking.com about the breakfast. In short, those people must either be used to a standard of hoteliery that I’ve never experienced, or just plain out of their minds. Breakfast was immense. Running from 7am to 10am, it was a huge buffet featuring food from all over the world. There were Western dishes, Taiwanese, Japanese, French, and on the first morning we even had Mexican quesadilla which were awesome. There was bread and lots of cakes that you could toast if you wanted, orange and tomato juices and a tea/coffee machine. On the first morning I filled my boots, but after that I started to worry about my waistline a little … plus it was a little strange eating things such as pizza and curry for breakfast. Still, no complaints at all.
The room had wi-fi, and there was also a kind of chilling out room on the lobby floor which also had a computer for guest use. On the first basement floor, there was a small gym, although it only had a couple of running machines and a stepper. It did have free bottles of water available which was a nice touch. There were also all the other usual amenities such as laundry, airport taxi booking, etc, none of which we actually used.
There was a small market just at the end of the street, although it had nothing special about it, as well as several shops including a pharmacy, and a cake shop. There were a few restaurants nearby, including several posh looking fish joints near the MRT stop, as well as a Burger King. There was also a cinema just around the corner, showing Western Films.
I used booking.com as I do for most hotel bookings these days. According to the rates on the invoice we were given the official room charge was 6000 New Taiwanese Dollars a night, but we got significant discounts on the website and paid between 2800 and 3200 (68 pounds) per night. Not sure why the rates were different, but it says in my guidebook that weekends/peak times have different rates in Taiwan.
