Royal Castle Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Your best bet for a decent budget hotel is to find a place that has recently been renovated. Like this little business hotel in the heart of old Taipei. Snug little rooms have dark-wood trim, not bad furnishings, and bathrooms that are, well, bathrooms.
Yep, functionality with a little bit of simple comfort is the name of the game here. But that's okay. You're not here to move and shake the city, but to have a place to crash after a long day doing business or out exploring. And that down bedding sure takes the weight off your back. Hmm, a few more touches like that would be great. Maybe you should tell the staff. They're above-the-board friendly and would take any suggestions very well.
