This place is near Ximen station and right in the buzzling shopping district and cloase to Red House which is good for a late drink. Staff ist really friendly and very helpful. It is a very good deal for the money. On the downside: I would skip breakfast. There so many fantastic places near this place. Try them!

We had good impression at first and real impression of the hotel facilities. However, on the last day of the stay, the reception called my sis up and say that the room was being booked by someone and want her to her to move out immediately.. This is ridiculous and we asked the reasons of doing it, they didnt even... More

Pros: - Central location and close proximity to metro - Clean, spacious rooms - New bathroom with all the basic toiletries (slippers a nice touch!) - In-room safe Cons: - Can be a sketchy part of town late at night (apparently it's close to the unofficial red light district) - Breakfast ... yuck. But Taiwan is famous for great, cheap... More

Just stay here for a week...worst week in Ximending. They charge you more upon arrival and you are on the hook. Also, they will charge differently for different people..entirely up to the mood of the individual. For the same price, I could get a much better room. Some rooms are without windows, breakfast are frozen food heated at 6.30 AM.

For the room, i was satisfied with the cleanliness, amenities, wifi and size, but the walls were quite thin, so i could hear people talking and walking at the... More

MRT station is a 5 minutes walk and there are plenty of dining and shopping options around the hotel. My room was pretty small but suited me just fine. Breakfast choice and... More
