Stay Inn
Ranked #30 of 261 Taipei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Stay inn is located in a commercial building occupying one of the level, 8. The lobby is nicely design.
We were early on the day of check in, the staff allowed us to left our luggage there so that we were able to go sightseeing without burden. By the time we returned to the hotel, our luggage were nicely placed in our room already:))
Initially, I was hesitant to book the hotel as I considered the place was way out of the main shopping area. It proved me wrong, with the help of the map provided by the hotel, it was so easy to follow and very soon we reached the hotel without any hassle at all. The area has lots of shops, eateries and bars around.
One does not has to worry about meal and transport, it is so accessible the moment you step out of the hotel. By the way, there is a 7-11 store right next to the building.
Good news is you can choose to take a bus direct to Taoyuan airport, you may just wait for the bus right in front of the Ambassador hotel. The bus ride costs NTD90 only for a 60-70 minutes journey.
Overall, I definitely come back with my family to stay here if I come visit Taipei again.

Stayed for 5 nights. Staff were nice and helpful to speed up check-in process and wouldn't disturb guests unless room services were asked for. The hotel is located in a commercial building, but is quiet enough for sleep during nights. The rooms are clean and tidy with neat furniture. The location is convenient as it is only a few minutes walk away from the MRT station with fast food restaurants and convenience stores around. Overall, it's really worth the money as similar hotels in town centre are more expensive and less tidy. Will stay again in the future.

Excellent location, conveniently located and easy to get around. Though it wasn't that easy to identify when we first arrived. But once you've found the place and checked-in, you'll love the location.

No food available in the hotel itself, but plenty of options in the vicinity. With a 7-11 downstairs, food is available 24hours.

Interesting market nearby where we had a nice hour of browsing. There is also the Ningxia Night Market within walking distance which (imo) isn't that great and we chose to skip as we visited it in Dec 2012.

Hotel is clean, room is small but comfortable for 2. No restaurant, no spa, no swimming pool, no bath tub. But has all the other basic amenities like fresh towels, toothbrushes, body wash, drinking water, etc. Plus point is the washing machine & dryer available for use at NT$30 each, which is a steal. We were able to wash our clothes for our next destination. Helped a great deal as we were on the road for 2 weeks and we were able to have fresh clothes for the 2nd half of our journey.

Staff (Ms Xu & Ms Li) are friendly and helpful. Ms Li printed the MRT map for us, helped with directions and even suggestions on where to go.

We had the room at the front which was fairly quiet with a small balcony (not much of a view though). On the whole, it is a small and quite hotel that allows a convenient and comfortable stay. Will definitely consider staying here again on our next trip.

Location of the hotel is inner taipei city, you can go anywhere by MRT or any other public transportation when you traveling in taipei city.
Only 5 mins by walk then you can reach the nearest MRT station.
And the environment of hotel was clean and comfortable.
The Worker were nice and introduce some interesting places, and the price is valueable.
Suitable for any style traveler.

it's located in a commercial building, offering small but clean n bright rooms. The bed is quite comfortable too. Very easy to get a cab for shopping n sight-seeing. A few restaurants nearby; there is also a night market in a 20 mins walk, worth visiting. This hotel is really value for money.

We stayed here for around 7 days while on vacation in Taipei. I'll start with what I thought was the only negative aspect of this place. The room is very small!! US travelers who are used to large posh rooms won't be happy.

BUT.....

Great news! This place is very clean and comfortable. The closet was decent sized so we hid a couple of suitcases in there. There is a long counter that spans the back of the room allowing us to place remaining luggage under the counter and set up a laptop on the counter. The bed was comfortable and gave us a great night of sleep (with all of the walking we did, it was needed!). The bathroom entrance was a sliding door which makes sense when you consider the lack of space. That was less than idea for privacy. But that's okay. The bathroom was quite functional and comfortable. All in all, the room was Good. Were it a little bigger, it would be Great!

Keep in mind this is in the middle of a city so they only occupy 1 floor of the building. This means that there aren't a lot of rooms to choose from and only a handful of rooms that have windows. We had an inside room with no windows. Some may hate this, but I thought it was great when you wanted to sleep in a little.

THE BEST PART.
This place is VERY convenient to everything. It's a block away from the Subway station (MRT) and has a 7-11 just outside the ground floor. If you wake up at 3am and must have a beer or coffee, throw on some shoes and walk outside. There's plenty of shopping in the immediate area and there were 2 (at least) night markets within walking distance (15 minute walk). Those who are not happy with the room size will be thrilled with the location.

Would I stay here again? Absolutely!

Room: +1 Good
Location: +2 Great!
Value: +2 Great! (I think we got in for about $60-$70 USD a night)

I have decided to give this hotel a try after reading the reviews here. Location of the hotel is very near to Shuanglian metro station, probably abt 5mins walk, all along main road, opposite is a police post, diagonally Mackey hospital. Hotel is located on the 8th floor of an office building, occupying the entire level (even the lift door at level 8 is pasted with hotel advert). 1st floor has a 24hr guard with CCTV installed on both lifts, also a 7-11 just right beside the lift lobby. Even at wee hours, the place never feels secluded. Hotel staff is ard from 10am-10pm, and always ready to help if needed. Hot and warm water dispenser is available at public area, thou washer (branded commercial washer) and dryer is available only from 10am-10pm (washing powder provided), and charges are really nominal. Hotel exterior furnishing is modern, understand its relatively new in operations, less than a year. Rooms are well lit, mine was with windows - cant really feel e noise unless u open e window, basic furnishing, toiletries provided, fridge, hair dryer provided. Price point is very affordable, remember to Like their facebook page to get some discounts. I totally enjoyed my 6 nights at Stay Inn, and I will go back if I'm visiting Taipei in the future.
