“Well-appointed, great service, breakfast bar”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

We chose a twin room with bathtub and were not disappointed. Though the room is somewhat small, it is great value for its location in Ximending. Clean, well-appointed and with friendly staff. The breakfast bar is good for a perk up before heading out - free flow of drinks, coffee/tea, toast, cereal, energy bars and even jelly beans to snack on.

Am still staying here for a last night. Can't wait to share the positive stuff on this hotel!

Rooms are wonderful, we booked a total of 4 rooms, all are wonderful deco, clean. After a whole day of touring around Taipei, u will be thankful to be back to your room. The bed is very cosy.

The location of hotel is super, right at heart of xmd! U can do your shopping and dining all within the hotel walking distance. And it near the ximen station!

The staffs are helpful and the free snack and drinks are the lobby area is definitely a good gesture from the management, well appreciated!!

Will definitely return to this hotel if back to Taipei again.

I just came back from Taipei and stayed at this hotel. We have a pleasant stay with this hotel. The hotel located near ext 6 ximen and easy access to amenity. We stayed at the venture room with bathtub. The bathtub is big enough for two person. Maybe the hotel is quite new, so everything look clean and neat. Overall was satisfied with the services and room. Definitely will stay again if come bck to Taipei

This hotel has 4bedded rooms so it's just nice for families with kids. New hotel right in the heart of Ximending. However, as it was located on a small lane, cars couldn't get in and we had to stop at the main road and carried our luggage in. Reception is located on the 2nd floor, small but friendly. Reminded me of Ibis hotels. No breakfast provided but they have snacks like bread, biscuits, cakes, coffee etc in the morning, as well as instant noodles and soft drinks throughout the day. Saw quite a lot of Singaporeans in the morning, so apparently it's quite popular amongst us.
Music was broadcasted in the corridors, and I could still hear them after I closed my room door. Luckily it went off at 10.30pm, otherwise I would need to call reception.
Only one small window located in the bathroom, but as the room was big enough, it didn't feel claustrophobic.
Price is reasonable considering the location, and I would definitely stay here again.

I have visited Taipei several times and always stayed at different hotels trying to find the perfect place with a nice room and good location - the via hotel may be it for me. The hotel is located in small noisy Ximen side street among many small shops. I walked past the small sandwich board for the hotel several times before i found it - I was told that a larger sign is being made. as i waited for the elevator i was a little worried about what kind of hotel i may have booked, but was pleasantly surprised when the elevator opened in a bright cheerful reception area. staff at check-in were friendly but professional and explained that breakfast was not included but snacks, drinks and instant noodles were available in the lobby 24 hours and toast and croissants were also available in the morning. My room was attractively decorated and featured a nice sized flat screen tv mounted on the wall. The bathroom was also quite nice with an interesting deep bathtub - attractive, but it might be difficult for seniors or anyone with mobility problems to get in and out. there was only one window in the room, located in the bathroom and looking out at nothing so it was impossible to determine the weather. The reception area was quite nice and reminded me of spaces in upmarket hostels where guests might gather to exchange sightseeing and shopping tips over a cup of coffee. As i had coffee one morning I noticed the Chinese newspapers and asked if there was an English newspaper. There wasn't but before I finished my coffee one of the staff went out and brought me back one. There was an English newspaper there every morning for the rest of my stay. It is this kind of attentive service that makes me want to stay a the Via Hotel again. There was also a free laundry service which i took advantage of on the day I arrived.

Our fav was the 24 hr snack bar that provides free selection of coffee, tea, biscuits, snacks and sometimes even instant noodles. Ximending is a great place to stay if you're young. travelling with friends, shopaholic and don't mind all the hustle and bustle especially during the weekends. the room was clean and the bed was actually very comfortable! New hotel, clean bathrooms, comfy bed, great service. Free wifi available on every floor, so don't worry about poor connection.

All the good things have been said on previous reviews but would emphasize the impeccable service of the entire hotel crew, from the receptionists to the cleaning ladies. Kudos to all of you and that made my family's 4-night stay in Via Hotel memorable. The 24-hr snack bar was a plus! See you next time around.
