We were supposed to stay 3 nights at Purple Garden Hotel. The photos on their website looks okay and most comments on TripAdvisor suggest that the place was good. We booked the place. When we got to the hotel, we were surprised at how close it was located - just right next to a MRT entrance/exit. However, when we manage... More

As it was new year's eve, we didn't have much choice. I wrote directly to this hotel and they confirmed my reservation. They can reply in English but allow some delay in response. The room is clean, small and basic. It's location is ideal as it is just next to Exit No. R4 of the Zhongshan Metro Mall from Taipei... More

This hotel is located at R4 exit of Zhong Shan Metro Station Exit / Entrance. It's really a good deal for the budget minded and the hotel is quite decent. There is a vegetarian restaurant along the stretch of roads too. =) I will definitely be opting this hotel in future if I travel to Taipei again.

This hotel is located just outside the Zhongshan MRT Exit R4. The hotel was also kind to let us leave our luggage at the dining area before we could check-in. We saw good reviews of this place, however, it was rather disappointing. We booked 2 twin and 1 queen rooms, only the queen room at Lvl4 had good working connection... More

Just situated 2 mins from the train station and located near to cafes. Welcoming receptionist and superb service. The price is really affordable for Taipei and the room is nice and clean. Highly recommended for a budget stay in Taipei and if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Xi Men Ding. If you missed the... More

I have come to Taipei many times. The Purple Garden is a very exact type of hotel. It is not the most luxurious, but if you're looking for a inexpensive hotel a short walk from the Taipei main bus and train station, then this is the best I've found. Literally you walk 7 minutes and you're there from the station.... More

The hotel is in between zhong San station and Taipei main station. If we are exit R4 or R5. If u exit from r4 the hotel is just at your left side. And behind a coffee joint call 85c . The main entrance is small. The hotel is about 10mins walk from Taipei main station. ( underground ) Room size... More

Only NTD 1890 a night for a double room with free breakfast. The hotel is not so new but really clean. Room is complete with free toiletries and complementary bottled water. The breakfast is the usual Taiwanese porridge with side dishes. Not really my taste but i am super surprised that we even have breakfast with the rate we are... More

Make reservation without deposit for foreigners, ask for show room before we paid. Receptionist was friendly. The lift is on 2nd floor. The room that we got is smelly but after informed them, they actually spray some air freshener, so is okay. Stay 4 nights, paying NTD1390/NTD1590 per night include with breakfast, however we only take breakfast for 1 day.... More
