Hotel is in a good location, lots of shops around the vicinity. Wasn't able to use the public transport on my stay though but overall location is top. Room is not spacious but it can be called ample already as compared to hongkong hotels. But the room is a bit old though clean, it can be seen in the carpet, toilet that its really old, it could use some renovation and facelifting. Feels like the lobby to the rooms and the room itself needs more light, felt like the room was a bit dark and its als... Read more

I stayed in this hotel couples of times, i always i press with their service. Room looks abit old but it is clean and tidy. The location is nice and lots of shop nearby. I personally don't like the breakfast as simply. My recommendation is do not get a room facing the road as bit noisy.

We stayed here for 3days. The hotel staff is well educated and room was clean. The room we were assigned was not so large but cozy with comfortable beds. Wifi connection was very smooth. The hotel is located almost next to Chung Hsiao Dun Hua station and many restaurants can be found in the neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay and would like to stay this hotel again.

We got a room with 3 beds and the size was ok. We had enough space for our luggages and coats so it was good. The beds were comfy. The entire room was clean and well-maintained. It was a traditional hotel. There is free, good, freshly brewed coffee in the 4th floor where the front desk is. There is also free instant coffee inside the room.

First impression was the incredible service we received on par with a 5 star hotel. The building is old and the place needs a face lift, especially the rooms. But the room was really large (pretty much a suite with a living room and a bedroom) and clean for the most part. We got a non smoking room but the room smelled of cigarettes and the floor of the shower stall was slanted so water accumulated in one corner. Despite all this, would stay again cause of the service and location.

This is a centrally located hotel near the metro. We think they follow the Japanese model of service with a smile. Tourists and business people from all over the world stay here, though. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The building is very old, but they did a very good job renovating it. Still the room we stayed in had a very old feeling to it. The rooms were kept very clean. Had some English TV, but the only English news channel was BBC World Asia.

The hotel seems to be a very traditional one but clean. The location is in the middle of Taipei city where high street shopping brands,restaurants, bars and cafes are situated on every corners of the streets. Deluxe rooms are in average size, bathroom traditional style. Acceptable international breakfast buffet start 6.30-9.30 am. but very bad taste coffee though. Staffs are very helpful and attentive in helping carrying our luggages and call taxi. Very convenient for grabbing taxi as taxi l... Read more

I love the location of this hotel. Shopping and MTR are just a step out from the hotel. There is a great patisserie in this hotel, well recommended. I've been staying in this hotel since before, but the decor inside the room have start to age. Here are some points that needs the hotel TLC... - refresh of interior - very old design of wallpaper - low ceiling in the toilet. For tall guy, he may hit his head while doing shower - shower head holder, need replacement as the shower is falling down d... Read more

I've been to Taipei a number of times, but this was my first visit staying at the San Want Hotel. Overall, I'd say the hotel was decently nice. The decor is a bit worn and I wouldn't go so far as to say the hotel is a luxury spot - I'd compare the accommodation to a Hampton Inn. The breakfast, if you're more familiar with a western-style breakfast, is likely to send you to a nearby Starbucks in search of more home-style fare. What the hotel definitely has going for it is location. A subway ... Read more

The only saving grace for this hotel is the location. Other than that, they have a very poor service. I suggest they train their staff well on how to handle customers. Maybe they don't mean to be rude, but that's how it appers to me. Someone called me around 9:45pm to tell me....BIG SURPRISE... my room rate has increased for my second day. The people at the reception are not articulate and couldn't explain really well to answer if you have questions. Same with the staff on the restaurant on t... Read more

location is excellent at zhongxiao dunhua station, plenty of choices to eat behind the hotel and in front. The hongkong dimsum next to the hotel opens 24hrs, the bakery at the hotel makes excellent bread and pastries. The staff are warm and friendly from bellboy to counter staff. The room we chose for 2 adults and 3 kids was big and roomy. Only negative was the fixture was dated and old but overall clean and well maintained. Being central makes easy accessible to major attractions. Would recomme... Read more

My wife and I recently visited Taipei for the first time with my mum and we were looking for a hotel which was centrally located and not too expensive. We ended up choosing a triple room for 5 nights at the San Want Hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, the location is fantastic and very convenient for exploring the city. There is a Metro entrance basically at the front door which gives access to the whole city. It is also about a 25 minute walk to the Taipei 101 Mall and tower. There ... Read more

San Want Hotel : The best location. Shopping street in front of hotel, Family Mart & 7-11 just couple of minutes, all u can find. MRT Zhongxioa Danhua Exit 4 just in front of the hotel, nothing easier. Staffs are very friendly and very helpful and efficient, they reply to anything you need. We stayed at executive room. Nespresso coffee maker in room, with complimentary fruits/snacks/water everyday. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom. We were on 13th floor, quiet and nice. Fast Wifi in room. Breakfas... Read more
