I had a 22 day stay between July and August. Overall, a decent location for attending NTNU summer camp, and decent management.
Once crossing Roosevelt, a busy street, it was an easy , and safe 10 minute walk to NTNU, or Shida night market. Less than 5 minutes to the Guting Stop (exit 2). Also an easy walk to the NTNU pool, where we took very affordable swim lessons compared to NY prices.
The apartment itself was compact, but renovated, clean, and sufficient for our family of 4. There is a daytime doorman. The building is a mixed use commercial-residential building with dentist on 2nd floor, and acupuncturist on 3rd floor. We found using the stairs to sometimes be faster than elevator. The air conditioning worked out to be about 60NT/day with mild-moderate use. Electricity is included except for air conditioning.
It would be have been preferable to have had a single-point-of contact for the management team, and improved communications in general. Upon arrival, it would have been better if our greeter gave us a better overview of where to find supplies (such as toilet paper or trash bags), the wifi information, how to turn on the TV/Cable, and pointed us to the Apt Guide Book, so we could be more independent up front. Overall, I probably interacted with 4 different people during our stay. While generally courteous, and quick to address issues, at one point the internet was updated but I wasn't told about new network for a week. Also, there was no hot water for 24 hours, and we were not notified up front.
When we experienced minor issues (circuit outages, furniture or lightbulb mishaps, wifi connectivity), management was quick to respond.
I would return to this apt, or work with this property management group again.
