"A lovely hidden gem, but not for everyone"
This is one of my favorite places to stay in Taiwan, but there are several caveats for the Westerner traveler.
Service: Probably the friendliest service I've had in the island - but be aware that the staff English level is for the most part below conversational. One of the front desk ladies speaks Japanese, however, which I also can, so I mainly communicated that way. They'll all happily help in any way they can.
Location: Hard to find, and in an area of New Taipei City that isn't as pristine as the nicer areas. First impressions may not be high, and during the day the Fuzhong Station area isn't the most pedestrian friendly, but just take a look around at night - Banqiao Night Market is filled with cheap, delicious food. A great nearby lunch option is Lin Yuan Taiwanese Meatball. Somewhat far from Taipei's heart.
Room: Mine was a double, big, clean, and nicely styled. Comfy bed in my book. Toilet handle had some issues, but the housekeeper fixed it, and the only soap provided is hand soap. WiFi is quick.
Miscellaneous: Free tea and coffee in the room, which you can make using the water heater provided. Same items are available downstairs. You're given a key and fob on check-in; use the fob to access the elevator, the key to enter the room, and give both to the front desk if you want your room cleaned while you're out and about.
Overall: If you can handle the language barrier and the messier area, definitely a worthwhile place to stay, especially if you can get a cheap room
