“Comfortable, Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

I have no complaint for this place. Staff are friendly and helpful. The bed is comfortable. Room is small but literally spotless. It's very near to the MRT station. Wifi is fast. My tiny opinion is the price is still abit at high side, considering it's not a hotel.

Stayed January 2014, travelled solo

Staying here for a total of 7 days and today is only the 3rd day and you don't feel like staying in a foreign country or place. It's a Home, cos every staff in the hotel is friendly and super helpful. May be a bit difficult to locate the place but once you found it you can reach the Ximen MRT within 5mins. And walking distance to ximengding shopping and Carrerfour Supermarket 24hrs.

Like what the hotel website say, it's a house not a hotel. That's indeed how you want to experience the Taiwanese hospitality when u stayed with a simple place. There is a Chinese saying, <<麻雀虽小五脏俱全>>. This small apartment has everything you need. The room is cosy and relatively big, thank you Thomas for arranging a bigger room when I was concerned about having storage space for my 2 big luggage. The location is really good, just A short walk to xmd mrt station. Definately a great and simple space to stay.

Decent staff and room services and perfect location which is located at Xi Men Ding with just 2 minutes walk from hotel. There are two breakfast shops just beside the hotel and worth to try their tasty foods. Convenient shops such as Family Mart, 7-11, Carefour are nearby with the hotel as well.

Clean, Small-But-Cozy room. The table was a tad too small since there are no cabinets or storage spaces. All the cups, our books, her cosmetics and toiletries filled the table.
I know she had quite a bit of difficulty maneuvering when she was trying to prepare herself in the mornings.

Overall. We loved it that it is SO SIMPLE. Very homey and not commercialized in anyways.

Also their main door and room doors locking mechanisms and system gave us a solid sense of security.

Like others mentioned, the traffic was rather audible, especially in the mornings. Evenings were tolerable. Short walk to XMD.

Family like home staying, basic hotel facility, friendly treatment, flexible late checkout arrangement, 5 mins walking distance to Ximen station exit 1. Room quite small, no fridge, no safe in the room. Common coffee, tea, hot water dispenser, washing machine at level 6.

I stayed at a triple room with 2 of my friends in November last year. The owner are very helpful and friendly. The room was small but it was good enough for us having a good sleep at night and very clean & tidy. However, the shower room drain very slow, so we have to wait 5-15 mins when each of us take the shower in between. The location is good - only few mins walk away from the shopping area in Ximending and within 5 mins walk to MRT station. The entrance of the hotel is not obvious, so make sure u wont miss the wooden door with lovely pink flame. Tips: Book the room with the hotel directly as it is cheaper than booking sites. They accept paypal payment.
