What you pay is what you getThe hotel is more like a love motel. Its location is not that fantastic except for those who wanted to shop at 新光三越. It may seem near to many places but when you really walk it especially with older ones, it is not that feasible. It is near to the 7-eleven and a stationary shop that sells cheap and great variety of stationary. The decoration in the room is old and not appealing. The room is not exactly clean as we found a ball of white hair and insects on the floor. However, they would clean it immediately if you sound out to them. Although smoking is not allowed in all hotels, the guests next door would do that anyway. However, the hotel put a air purifier in our room upon our complaint. The bathroom didn't have a shower certain so the floor might be wet and messy after shower. The staff at the reception were very polite and helpful that compensated for all the above. We were really thankful to the driver who drove us to catch the bus even though he only needed to send us to the train station. His helpfulness is really representative of the Taiwanese service attitude. The breakfast was served on the 9th floor, suitable for those who don't mind oriental breakfast such as porridge and vegetarian food. They did try to vary their dishes daily. There is no WIFI in the room but it is fine if you buy their cheap unlimited online phone card during your stay. They provide free shuttle service to the train station and the nearest HSR shuttle bus-stop which starts only at 10 am. However, if you arrive early, they would require you confirm the pickup time. Overall, it is an average budget hotel since it is considerably cheap. Afterall, what you pay is what you get.

Smoke filled and tiredWant to smoke cigarettes but too cheap to buy your own? Stay at the Welcome Hotel, where second-hand smoke comes free in the supposedly non-smoking rooms, the lobby, and the elevator. Sponsored by the ventilation system and by off-gassing from the furniture. If you complain, they'll offer to further poison you by running an ozone machine while you attempt to sleep. Wifi did not work in the room, only in the lobby. Tired rooms with wallpaper coming off and cracks in the bathtub. The TV had a ghosting effect, averaging the previous second or so of video. Staff spoke no or little English depending on the time of day. Breakfast is served on the 9th floor (which isn't documented in English). There were rolls, white bread, and Chinese food that looked below street vendor quality.
