The staff here were extremely friendly and helpful. Its about an hour out of central Taipei on the MTR but Tamshui is a nice area to check out on its own!
I booked a private room to relax after Christmas, which had a private balcony overlooking the Tamsui river. The room was very nice, but solo travelers looking to meet people may have a tough time as their isn't really a common room. Also, the Tamsui station is a considerable ride from the center of the city, so plan to spend a lot of time on the MRT if you want to check out downtown Taipei.
