“Excellent location with friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

The best thing about this place is its location. Only minutes from the Ximen MTR station and right in the middle of Ximending. It's tucked into a side lane so it's still quiet despite its location. We stayed in 2 rooms at the beginning and end of our trip. Both rooms are of decent sizes, although some may find the bathrooms a little small. But they're definitely not small by Asian standards.

Both the rooms have themed decorations. One does not have windows. Facilities include TV, small fridge, AC, wifi, filtered water, laundry and umbrellas to borrow. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and reasonably-priced. Most importantly, the location is very hard to beat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows if that matters to you.

Have my 7days stayed here. Hotel is at ximending and its just a few minutes walk to ximending mrt station. Nearby to famous 阿忠面线, breakfast
永和豆浆just few minutes walk away.I can say stay in ximending no need scare of getting hungry.
The price is reasonable for the occasion located. Theres 2types of standard room, I chose the bigger standard room.Room was clean but the only thing is no window. I prefer if there is windows.

The staff there is very friendly and nice.
They printed the mrt line map and tell us where to go ,to shop, to eat, sightseeing. While my stayed there in taipei everyday rain its so cold, so sweet of them give me and my mom warm pack. We can hold it when we cold to keep us warm.

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.
