“Excellent boutique hotel”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The new Xinyi line opened in November 2013 and the Cornerhouse is just outside Exit 1 of Daan Park station, next to 7 Eleven.

We stayed in the Residence Suite (2 bedroom suite). Room was excellent with a living room, kitchenette, dining table and a good size for the kids to run about. Families who need to prepare simple food for children will like the kitchenette.

Everything in the room was of top quality. Breakfast was good with suffiicent western items for the kids. Free wifi.

Real value for money. Highly recommend this place for families who need more space than a typical hotel room.

We had 3 adults and 2 kids. Paid extra NT495 per night for the 5th person - child rate.

As a frequent traveler to Taipei, I used to stay at the Starwood chain hotels. However, I discovered The Corner House - the value brand boutique hotel (only 49 rooms) of a 5-star parent - last year and have been a loyal customer during my last half a dozen trips. It is wonderfully situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, about a 10-minute walk from the original Ding Tai Fung, the famous dumpling restaurants deemed one of 10 Best in the World by New York Times, and the locally famous Yong Kang Jie boutiques/restaurants/snacks area. There are a 7-11 and a Family Mart within 5 minutes walking distance. Within the same distance, there are a couple of very cute coffee shops, a small spa that provides excellent facials and massages, an organic food store, a fairly good small Japanese restaurant, and a fruit stand, plus the weekend jade and flower market. A new subway stop, again, the same 5-minute walking distance away, is due to open very soon.

Service at The Corner House is impeccable and personalized. Not only did the English-fluent reception staff recognize and remember me several months after my initial stay, but the dining room personnel did as well and welcomed my return. Their thoughtfulness is evident in the complimentary cold juices and hot coffee/tea available in the lobby all day, and - in room - two bottles of water in the refrigerator for those who want ice cold water and hot water in water bottle for those who want it warm, plus the small packs of complimentary snacks. Their suites are good size, with simple kitchen setup (microwave oven, refrigerator, stovetop, utensils). The bathroom includes both bathtub and regular/rain showers, as well as Japanese-style toilet with most of the bells and whistles. TV has a good offering of English channels, including “premium” ones like Nat Geo and Discovery, which is more than what can be found in some 5-star hotels elsewhere. The bed is very comfortable and the pillows firm enough to support one’s neck. The 70-30 Chinese: western style breakfast - included in the room rate - is yummy, nicely balanced nutrition-wise, and changes every day. If I must pick one thing that could be improved upon, it would be the in-room 1200-watt hairdryer. If it can be upgraded to higher wattage, everything at The Corner House would be absolutely perfect!

Since it is nestled in a residential area and its name and entrance discreetly displayed, first timers may have a hard time finding it. Some cab drivers aren't even aware of its existence. Therefore, you need to provide the full address, not just the name, of the hotel. It is located, as the name implies, at the corner of Xin Sheng South Rd., Sec. 1, Lane157, and Xin Yi Rd., Sec. 3, Lane 31, diagonally across from a grocery store with fruit stand outside.

Room Tip: Opt for the suites.

Corner House is in a nice quiet area near Da-an Park, and there is a nice Cama Coffee shop facing the park. The rooms are spacious, with a separate living/ bedroom area. The room we had also came with a small balcony. It was nice that we had warm drinking water everyday, as a thermal water kettle was provided. Daily breakfast looked good too, though we went out daily to have local breakfasts. Would def stay there again.

This service apartment is located in a quiet area. It is not far from the business district and is only 10 minutes from the weekend flower market. There is also a gym in the basement with enough variety of equipment. It is definitely a very good business hotel.

The price-quality ratio here is very very good. The hotel was clean, well designed, and had all the amenities you would need for a business or pleasure trip. The highlight though was the staff that helped us everyday to find the right things to see and do in Taipei. It's about a 5 minute walk to the subway stop and getting a taxi is very easy off the main street. If you're coming from the airport and it's your first time to Taipei i suggest taking a taxi as the first time it's hard to find the hotel. I would for sure stay here again next time i am in Taipei.

The Corner House ticks all the right boxes; comfortable, cozy, spotlessly clean, friendly service and conveniently located near a big city park and major transportation options. A new MRT line is being opened in late 2013, and one of the stations will be just two streets away from The Corner House, in front of Da'an park. This should make the location even more appealing.

I spent three nights here in early August 2013, in a Deluxe Suite. The rate includes daily breakfast -unfortunately not too elaborate or memorable- and unlimited free Wi-Fi. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are several dining options nearby, as well as a convenience store. The room included a tiny electric hob, a microwave and a tiny sink - convenient for business travellers that may have to eat in the room while finishing work.

It quickly became my second home while in Taipei, and was sorry to leave at the end. Will definitely come back to The Corner House, and recommend it to others.
