“not as much hotel as you may expect”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

This is not as much hotel as you may expect. Just like a business hotel in Japan. Not spacious, not many facilities, no even restaurant.

Intead, very well located in Ximen which is the downtown of Taipei.

The staffs try to be helpful but limited English.

I'd like to say that you could stay at upper class Hotel like Eight Zone Hotel if you would add some more money to this.

Good location, less than 10 minutes to Ximen station.

Reception staff are friendly and no problems leaving your luggage there even days before you check in (that is, you need to make small trips around Taiwan and need to leave big luggage in one place)

Rooms are cosy (a little small) and clean.

Just around the corner, do try the BBQ GRILL 2hour buffet- it is very good. Make reservations as the place is small.

Stay in this hotel for our honeymoon in April 2012.. originally we choose this hotel because of the location and cheap pricing (we will not be spending a lot of time in the hotel room), but I must say this hotel have exceeded our expectation!

Small but cozy room that is clean and quiet, provide all the basic needs (tooth brush, tooth paste, shampoo, bodywash, hairdryer etc)

The staff were really friendly, nice and helpful! Location were great! Just a short walk to train station and convenient store that open 24 hours is just across the street.

Always greeted by all the different staff with smile whenever we go out and come back to the hotel.. Will definitely return!

Made special request for Hello Kitty room and was very delighted to see the room nice and clean as we expected. The entrance to the hotel though not appealing but when you took the lift to 6th floor (lobby), it was so pleasant ..and even best, our Hello Kitty room. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Location though abit far out to Ximen Station (10mins walk) but by 2nd day, we were already very familiar with the route to MRT station. Highly recommend this hotel, value for money.

Decided on this hotel as it's in Xi Men Ding and not too far from the shopping district, of cos not as near as Rainbow hotel is.... Reaching this hotel will require you to take some steps up from level 1 to take a lift up to the hotel lobby, so I do find it abit inconvenient with a luggage, but not that terrible though, since it only happen when I check-in and check-out 2 times in total.

I do miss the breakfast shop right below this hotel, where they sell really nice crepe rolls and soya bean milk! And yes, Freego bus will stop just opposite the hotel, which I'm quite happy about it. For subway, that's about 5 mins walk away, which I will pass by shops on my way, so it does'nt really turns me off, as I can shop while I travel!

The room decor is also quite nicely furnished and new, with a really comfy bed, and a very stylish shower area. Worth to give it a try, if you are sick of other XMD hotels :")

Stayed at the long stay room 1807 from 26 to 30 Sept.
Over all, I would return to the Hotel. The general surrounding of the Hotel is acceptable.
Other then the fact that there is no security for each floor, I still don't feel too bad.
There are cameras at key key of the Hotel.

The lack of breakfast is not a downside of this hotel.
The surrounding have tons of small food stall, thus, there is no lack of thing to ea

7-8 mins walk to Ximen MRT is not that bad too.

The room we had is limited in storage space, but still enough to put all my purchases.

The FREE Wifi is a plus point for the hotel.
