After searching for almost 3 hours on the net i finally found SUNWORLD DYNASTY HOTEL a nice , strategic 4 STAR hotel right in the center of Taipei financial district , next to ikea , opposite TAIPEI ARENA , 500 meter from NANJING MRT Station and a walking distance from a halal restaurant.
From the review on tripadvisor.com and blog everything seems positive.
Let me share with you my tips on how to search for a good hotel
1)choose an online booking platform that you are familiar with for eg wotif.com or agoda.com

2)choose a hotel and cross check with the hotel website incase if they offer more discount by booking directly . They are certain hotel chain which will give you a better discount if you book with them directly for eg ACCOR GROUP.Ibis hotel , holiday inn and etc falls under accor group

3)cross reference the hotel location with google earth . From google earth you could estimate on wheter the hotel is located near a specific area as claim . For me a hotel must be located near a public transportation system for eg an MRT , preferably a cool and hip area near a shopping mall.from google earth also you could study your route especially if it is your first time in that area . When you are actually there , you could easily get your bearing and walk like a pro to your destination.

4)Do not read the hotel website guest comment , it's all bullshit . search comment on specific hotel through blog (blogsearch.google.com) . in this way you will get an honest comment about the hotel.

try it and you will never get lost!!
