This a very quiet hotel yet its location is very convenient in XiMenDing area. The shopping district is just down stair but no worry, no noise ! Because all the room is located is 6th floor onward.
The stuffs is very helpful and friendly, they recommended some best place to nom nom nom in town.
The hotel's price is worth it and it probably the cheapest in this area.
Good Job !

This hotel is less than 5 mins walk from Ximending MRT station exit 1. It is tucked away in a side alley and you will have to look out for the signs leading to the hotel, which is on the 5th floor of a building. Otherwise, the location is great for shopping, feasting and sight-seeing. There are plenty of shops and eateries around the hotel in the Ximending area. Even at 11pm, there will be pushcart hawkers selling all kinds of local delights so you will never have to worry about being hungry if you stay in this area. The staff is very friendly, suggesting itineraries, making recommendations for places with good food and reminding us of the change in weather.

The room itself is very basic. After fitting in 2 big suitcases, there is not much space left in the room. The bed is comfortable though the pillow is a little filmsy. There is a built-in open cabinet. small coffe table and mini-fridge in the room, with complimentary coffee and tea. The bathroom is clean and spacious, with hot & cold water and basic amenities like toothbrush, razor, shampoo and shower gel.

The room size differs, as the room next to our's is quite big, perhaps because we are paying discounted rates we're paying. As we are in the middle of Ximending, and the room walls are not sound proof, we can still hear some noise coming from the streets late in the night. Overall, If location and cost is more important than frills, this hotel will be ideal for you.

Room Tip: Request for rooms which are far away from the streets.

This was our first trip to Taiwan. It was difficult to locate the inn when we first arrived at Ximen mrt exit 6. Upon checking in, we were given a map of the hotel within xmd, which I think should have been given us before we arrive so that it would be easier to locate the inn for the first time. We were also given advice on places of interest within the mrt lines. Location is very good. The famous AhZhong MeeSua is very near. For rooms, request a bigger one (ours was 526). Cleanliness of the room can be improved.

Staff (Steve-o) was very helpful and friendly. He gave a lot of information whenever we asked, and gave us many suggestions on sightseeing options. Although we only stayed one night (before moving out of taipei), he made us feel very welcomed.

As we opted for a budget queen room, amenities were basic but clean. Location was fantastic, and abt 2min walk away from everything exciting in Ximending. Would definitely consider staying here again, but probably in a larger room.

Room Tip: Budget queen room was tight for 2 people, with 2 large luggages.

This place is for travellers who want to pay as little for a decent bed and room. Staff are friendly and helpful. When we checked out, luggages were left with them in a storeroom and returned to us without problems!

Very near to the train station and the red house. Surrounding area is very vibrant and full of life and shopping!

One slight issue was that we turned off the fridge one day, came back and found the floor wet as the ice from the fridge had melted. Staff were quick to mop it up for us.

Also, our room had no window, so if you're clastrophobic, this might not be suitable for you.

Getting there: From Ximen Station Exit 6, you will see Watsons up ahead in front of you when you exit the station. Walk around Watsons with it being on your right, and then turn right into the first small lane (Lane 27). Good9Stay Inn is up ahead on your left.

Service: The staff at Good9Stay Inn are extremely polite and friendly, and ever ready to offer you help or advice, marking out landmarks on the map they provide, etc. They always greeted and smiled, sometimes making small talk as well. very homey and friendly indeed. security was good as there was always someone at the reception throughout the day.

Room: Stayed here for 4 nights. room was small and just enough space to open 1 suitcase and still have walking space. there was a good choice of cable tv available. the hot & cold water dispenser was available in the common corridor for hotel guests. The bathroom was of a considerably good size compared to the room, but we appreciated having that extra space in the bathroom. toothbrushes were provided and there was a soap dispenser too. Aircon was perfectly cold but perhaps cuz the room was small.

Surroundings: Ah Zong Mee Sua is just around the corner. Downstairs Good9Stay Inn there is a '89 Shop' that supposedly is really popular selling makeup etc beauty products, and is also the online distributor for these beauty stuff on websites (??) something like that. anyways, 'Lao Tian Lu' along Chengdu Road nearby is famous for braised stuff which you can also vacuum-pack to bring it home on a flight (e.g. duck tongue, duck wings, etc).

Overall, would definitely stay again. location is great, price is reasonable, felt very comfortable.
Note: Not for people expecting hotel-style rooms/decor.
