Introduction
Located about 40 minutes drive away from the Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei, Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites is an elegant business hotel in the city centre, within 10 minutes walk from Songjiang Nanjing metro station, and close to several offices. Part of the Green World chain of hotels, Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites does fall short on service, though everything else met my expectations.



Ambience
Ambience at Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites exudes a quiet elegance. The shades of leaf green, dark brown, black, silver, and pearl white appear sophisticated across the plush furnishings, decorative lighting, high ceiling, and marble floor. The place appears non-descript from the outside, which I guess suits business travellers just fine. Don't expect families to stay here though.



Room
Rooms at Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites are comfortable and cozy. The queen size bed is soft and plush, while the room has ample space for a working desk, recliner, benches, pantry area, and wardrobe. The bathroom is clean, equipped with 2 different showers and a bath tub, and well stocked with amenities. I also like that they have international multi-plug power sockets in the room.



Food
Food at Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites is slightly above average in quality. Served at the Lobby Restaurant, the range of dishes is limited, but with a good mix of international and local dishes. Decently tasty. However, there is no room service, nor any ala-carte menu throughout the day. Only breakfast is served, but at least everything is freshly prepared. You'll have to present a coupon (given upon check-in) to dine here.



Service
Service at Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites is below average. There seems to be an expectation of self-service here. Staff are friendly, but will ask guests to perform tasks themselves, such as collection of items from the lobby, instead of delivering it to the room. The restaurant staff adhere to meal timings; once the time is reached, they will politely request diners to leave the restaurant.



Facilities & Activities
The facilities and activities at Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites are business oriented but decent. The business centre and conference rooms are decently maintained and equipped, though not openly accessible unless booked. The wifi throughout the hotel is fast and stable. There are 2 options for laundry, either the paid laundry service, or the self-service option at the laundromat. Overall, I would return to Green World Hotel Jian Pei Suites for the convenience, but not the service.
