The Beauty hotel Hsuanmei is a good budget stay. Its a 40min Drive from the airport though. It will cost $1200 from the Tayoan International airport.
The hotel offers free wifi in every room and you can connect multiple devices at once. I believe that every room as a modem each.
Nice spacious bathroom with a tub/spa. Didn't get to use it though. There is a laundry center in the hotel where you only pay $50 to run the washing machine and another $50 for the dryer. A very cheap way of cleaning clothes. The hotel does offer its own laundry service as well if you choose.
The nearest MRT is a bit of walk. If you have a good sense of direction it will be easy. Taipei offers free WiFi in the city anyway and easy to use Google maps to find your way around from hotel if you have a smart phone. Don't need roaming services or local sim card. Just free WiFi service by the government. I had 1 taxi driver pretend he didn't know where the hotel was as he didn't want a short fare.
The only issue I had was the fridge turns off every time you leave the room when you remove the key card. Its a little annoying as I left 2 beer bottles and coke in the fridge. After long day of zoo and gondola I can back to warm beer.
You can hear noise from the elevated freeway next to the hotel and carpark under the freeway. The rooms are not sound proof. Its not very noisy but expect some noise.
The bed is very hard and I don't like hard backs. But I woke up with my back feeling fetter somehow.
Friendly staff. They helped arrange taxi at 5am to go to airport and they warned me cost to airport via taxi. I already knew but great service in letting people know. 7 Eleven is only 5min walk as well. Banks 5min as well.
In all a very good stay. I will recommend this place.
