Beauty hotel also offers free breakfast buffet. With the price I paid, i thought it would be a very basic breakfast but I was quite surprised with the selection and variety they offer. For beverages, they have a coffee machine, softdrinks, milk, juice, and yakult. For carbohydrates, they offer bread, pastries, rice, some sort of Asian noodles, congee, and cereal. As for protein and other food choices, they had scrambled eggs, tea eggs, ham, sausages, fried dumplings, breaded fish, sauteed veggies, and other Asian dishes I can't seem to recall. And they also have fruits, a salad bar, mozzarela with tomato and pesto, cheese, spreads for the bread, and yogurt as well. Even though it can get quite tiring eating the same thing day after day, it was free and there was alot to choose from and quality was good too.
As for its location, the hotel seems to be situated in a residential area, away from the hustle and bustle. Right across from the hotel is also a very small and quaint garden. It is just a block away from Family Mart and according to reviews that I read from tripadvisor.com, the subway is walking distance. However, since we had an elderly with us and we were 5 in the group, we found it more practical to just take taxis and taxis are pretty cheap and easy to come by in Taipei. But for those who want to be where the action is, I would suggest somewhere near the Taipei Main Station or Ximending.

They also have a small gym for the health conscious and there's free wi-fi but the internet signal was not so strong.
As for airport transfer, they do provide airport transfer for $1200NT (or maybe $1600, can't seem to remember since we stayed last Oct. 2011) for a van/minivan. We found this rate pretty reasonable since the airport is an hour away.
For those travelling with family and kids, I just wanted to warn you that there are adult channels on television so do not let your kids flip through the channels and they even provide free condoms along with toothbrush, shampoo, lotion, etc.
