New California Hotel is located directly opposite the Xindian MRT station and that being the last station has many advantages especially so during peak hours when you board the MRT. The bus station is also directly opposite the hotel. From the airport you can board bus number 2068 which costs NT135 and you will be dropped almost at the doorstep of the hotel and when heading for the airport just cross the street from the hotel. I think this bus service is every half and hour.
Before I booked this hotel, I read some negative reports about the hotel particularly on the staff and service. This is all unfounded. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Service was good. It's was like home for my 11 days stay there
I got a room on 3rd floor facing the lake, Room 305. Room was a little small but bearable. Clean bath/toilet and sheets and towels were sparkling white.
I booked through Expedia and I was charged about RM200 plus for a night versus approximately RM180 booking directly with the hotel. During week days the rate is NT1780 and weekend rate is NT2380 (not sure if it is NT2280 or 2380). But I was charged a flat rate of NT1780 per night for 11 days there (discounted). For stays above 7 nights they accord a special price.
Going to Shihlin night market is just a MRT ride away. No need to change MRT. Going to Wulai is a direct bus ride away and to Maokung is also a direct bus ride away. I find this to be most convenient
If I ever visit Taipei again, this will be the hotel for me again
