We (a group of 4) stayed in FarFarAway 5 for our graduation trip. On the day of our arrival, I gave Apple a call using the public phone in the airport and she gave me instructions on how to get to the apartment. The earliest time for us to check in was 11:30am but Apple made a special arrangement for us to check in at 11:00am as she knew that we arrived Taipei at 6:00am early in the morning. We took a heavy breakfast and we headed down to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall station (along the blue line). I gave a call to Apple and she gave us the directions to get to the apartment. Convenient stores, shops, eating houses etc were nearby the apartment. I met Apple along the way to the apartment and she brought us to the beautiful apartment.
When we first stepped into the apartment, my friends and I were like "WOW!" as the apartment looked exactly like the pictures we saw online. We quickly settled down and put our luggage in the rooms. Apple then explained to us on how to use some of the electronic appliances provided. The apartment has air conditioners in all the bedrooms as well as the living room, wifi was rather fast (20 - 30 mbps), washing machine and television. The beds were very comfortable, rooms were very clean and there were enough hangers.
Unfortunately, due to the weather condition in Taipei, my girlfriend's back starts having rashes. I informed Apple her situation and she gave my gf some lotion (quite expensive) out of her own will. The lotions were very effective! Another incident that happened was that the shower water heater was not giving out hot water when bathing. I contacted Apple on this issue and within minutes Jennifer came down to check on the heater. After spending several minutes checking, Jennifer told me that the heater was working perfectly fine and she suspected that we operated the shower water heater wrongly (the heater had security mechanism installed). She then showed me the correct way to use the shower water heater.
In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay over at FarFarAway 5! I can easily reach Apple through Whatsapp and her replies were quick. Apple is easy to work with and will always try to satisfy her customers' requests. Thank you Apple! :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Apple House originates from the idea of two globetrotters - Jennifer and I. As traveling a lot, we had many experiences looking for cozy places to stay during our trips. And luckily, we met various hostel owners and their hospitality and warmth impress us so much. We just wonder if we can also give travelers the same feeling as we experienced. So, here comes “the sweet home” --- Apple House. We start from scratch to design and decorate the living quarters for our guests. The only thing we care is if we can make guests feel at home. We wish you a pleasant and relaxing stay at Apple House. ... more less
