Good Time B&B
Ranked #4 of 253 Xinbei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I don't usually give 5 stars but for this B&B, I have to give a 2 thumbs up for them!

Being superficial, we chose this b&b base on the photos as there weren't much reviews during the time when we wanted to book. We were so glad that everything turned out fine, in fact more than what we expected! :)

The host was very friendly and hospitable. Drinks (we preferred water) were served the minute we checked in as we told them we had a hard time searching the place. He helped us with our luggage back to the room and told us how to get to the market, which was less than 5mins walk away. When we got back, they even served us chilled green beans soup after knowing we were beat from all the walking.

Breakfast was served warm too. Very healthy choices, I'd say. And they wanted to save money by taking the train back to Taipei instead of cab back. But managed to be convinced by us instead after helping us with the heavy luggage down from the room. :P We have a young toddler with us! Taking the train back with her and the luggage might be a bit tough. They helped us to get a cab and told him to send us back to Taipei instead of Ruifeng train station. We were truly grateful for that.

Back to the room. We took the green room and the view was superb! It has a good view of the mountain and the decor was so sweet that we had to take many photos inside it! My pals were WOW when we uploaded the pics on our social media site.

The room was very spacious with a huge king size bed! My daughter was so happy that she ran around and jumping on the bed. It was clean, modern and very well-maintained.

There were books outside the rooms for us to bring in to read in. I managed to pick a few books after dark since all the shops were closed and read to my daughter.

WIFI connection is free and very strong signal.

Over all, we were glad to have chosen here and we will definitely come back again on our next trip.

The lady host is pregnant btw, probably my daughter will have a playmate the next time when we are back. :)

The b&b has good view of the mountains and sea. The room decor is really sweet and spacious, we took many photos and relaxed in the room (instead of going out for sightseeing). The host is a young couple, they offered to pick us up when we called them after waiting for a long time for public transport. They were very considerate to offer us a lower level room instead of the room that we origjnally booked at level 3 when they saw my 70 year old mom.

Overall, it has been a pleasant stay. The rooms are very clean and the inn keepers are really hospitable. The B&B features interesting themes and is conveniently located with a 3 mins walk to the famous "old road". However, be mindful to check the weather forecast in Jiufen as the scenic view will be obstructed during rainy season. Also, the shops around this area closes quite early by 8 pm and hence visitors may want to bring along their PCs or tablets with them.

Excellent place to stay. It's just 2-3min walk from the top end of Jiufen old street. From Ruifang TRA train station, it's a TWD200 & 10-15min taxi ride.

The view from the room (i stayed in the Purple room) was great. The entire B&B was new, clean and nicely done up. Wifi was smooth. Breakfast was great. There's a common lounge on the second floor and pantry area + dinning area on the first floor.

The owner was very friendly and helped us to plan our itinerary for the area (Jiufen + Pingxi rail). A really nice person. We had the chance to chat with him during the night and he told us that the house decor was designed by himself and had just began business 6mths ago.

Overall a great place to stay. Would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in the area.

Room Tip: choose those rooms with views. they are worth paying for.

I came back to Taipei for Chinese New Year holiday from the Netherlands, and went to Jiufen 九份 with my parents for 2 days trip, stayed with Good Time B&B, had a very lovely time. When we arrived, it was pouring rain, and no taxi. After calling the manager at the B&B asking for direction, he offerred to come pick us up. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms in the B&B all have it's own theme, our room was decorated as Greek Islands - blue and white. The room was big, clean, very new, with perfect view of the gulf and the coast line. very conveniently located, 5 minutes walk to the heart of main streets in Jiufen (九份老街). Really enjoyed the stay.

We had a wonderful stay at this b&b. Clean and spacious room. Very convenient only 10 minutes walk to the famous old street. Free wifi provided. Generous portion and yummy breakfast prepared by the owner. Very friendly and helpful owner that pick us up from the bus station. He even sent us to the bus station to get a bus back to taipei. Highly recommended and will definitely come back again next year.
