This place must look familiar to those who used to attend universities outside of Taipei. This used to be the number one choice for students travelling to Taipei. Mum had some guests to entertain, and they were to stay here for the night. That's how I got a chance to revisit this place!
After Mum told me how much the rooms were per night, at first I thought it wasn't as cheap as I thought it would be. But then I thought about the quality, the security, and comfort the place offers... Yeah! It was a good deal. If you stayed at other smaller hotels or inns, chances are they wouldn't be as clean, nor safe as this place here.
After Mum helped the gang settle down, she showed me her room. Look at that view! This is definitely not the kind of view you could get at just any hotel (well, unless you pay maybe a few thousand more...)
Mum had all the rooms as twin-bed rooms.
The bathroom was simple, but it was very clean. The least you could ask for.
Judging from how clean and dry the bathroom was (many hotels in humid Taipei has this disgusting wet smell...), I presumed the place had been newly refurbished only recently.
Toiletries for your convenience.
I would assume that if you were keen on stuff like this, you'd bring your own stuff. But if you happen to forget a thing or two, these might become handy!
You can even see 101 from here! Whoever's lucky enough to get this room during New Year's Eve would have a spectacular view to the fireworks!
The screen was the only place I could place my signature...
Tea and kettle... another must.
There's a place like this on every floor.
Now the garden!
A simple map to let you know where the scenic spots are around Taipei.
In comparison to the Grand Hotel across from us, this place is a lot more economical!
Thus the quality of the guests staying here... Well, don't expect too much (I hope they're not Taiwanese!)
Most of the guests here are college students.
But sometimes you might see some older folks (feeling papparazzi like...)
Mum's guests had to leave to the airport early in the morning, before breakfast time. They were kind enough to suggest that the breakfast could be packed and the guests could have them on the bus during the ride to the airport!
