Small hotel/motel with small rooms. Our room had a moldy/muddy smell once we entered. It has a broken dehumidifier that didn't work. The bed was so wet due to the humid weather (in December!) that my husband got sick from lying on a wet bed for the whole night. This hotel is next to the subway station in an older... More

We're from Brisbane. Spent a week in Taiwan mainly the East side, loved the hospitality, food and the rain forest in Hualien. The very last night before we flew to Japan, stayed in this hotel, New California in Xindian-Taipie. I booked the hotel as it was conveniently located, close to the MRT station and bus station. A very disappointing stay,... More

The breakfast is great. Wife and kids love it. I especially like the coconut jam. All taiwan and western style. Staffs are friendly. Don't worry they do speak English. Highly recommend for Western tourist who wants to save a buck or two. The location is great. Try the broad walk restaurant s and live singing. It reminds me of New... More

I recommend this hotel. It is clean, well maintained and has a nice view over the river. The room was bright and airy, with complimentary water, coffee and tea. There was a fridge, but no safe, or iron. The breakfast consisted of a mix of Western and Chinese food, which was very tasty. The roof top restaurant has a very... More

I spent 4 nights at this hotel based on some reasonable reviews, price, and closeness to the train station. My stay was mixed and I can't say if I would stay again or not. The good ======== - location- being so close to the train station and bus terminal is a convenience no one should overlook. I swear- less than... More

Conveniently located 20 metres from the Xindian MRT, the price is very reasonable. Breakfast is decent. Small, clean and cosy rooms, great for couples. Great view from rooms on the right side of the corridor. There's also a direct bus service from the bus terminal to Taoyuan Airport.

I was in Taiwan for two weeks with my family and we came to visit Taipei for a few days, and a friend of my family recommended this hotel...the first problem was the location, it took us so long to find this hotel; it wouldn't appear in any of the gps we owned. Secondly, the rooms were small and we... More

The proximity of the hotel to the trains and coaches is a big plus; just a walk across the road. The rooms are comfortable, the meals excellent, and the staff are very hlpful. I would stay there again. Nearby are shops and also lovley gardens by the river to stroll in.

I booked this place through agoda, and I am truly happy to find this place. It's just across the street to Xindian MRT station (red-green line), makes it so easy to travel to the main station without changing lines, only about TWD30 one way. The bus also stops here and the bus to Wulai leaves every 15-30 minutes, depending on... More
