It is few minutes walk to Taipei Main Station. There are good eateries nearby. If you stay with teenage children, there is 10% discount. I have stayed here 3 times. This recent trip, they have changed bed to softer one. The toilet is renovated with powerful shower in an enclosure. Currently it is undergoing renovation, expected to complete in Sep... More

Hotel is strategically located right across the taipei train station. There is a starbucks coffee shop right beside the hotel and several stalls selling street food right across it. The rooms are very clean. WIFI signal is strong in the room and there is a station on the 4th floor where you can get hot, warm or cold water Room... More

In the heart of downtown - great locale! Felt very safe, clean and well appointed rooms, right by the subway in pretty much every direction you go. Close to several wonderful stores, a grocery store and some wonderful local restaurants mixed in with chain restaurants that those less adventurous can enjoy. Wonderful attractions....I'm going back in a few months and... More

It's very near to Taipei Station with quite a few eateries nearby too. It's cheap for a solo traveller, at least the cheapest I can find on hotel booking websites. Toilet had a smell of sewage after the door was closed for a whole night. For subsequent days, I left the door open and it got better. There is a... More

Actually, I kind of like this place and would stay there again if I heading Taipei on a solo trip (like I did before). Due to its religious link, there are certain house rules to follow and one of the things that don't quite my liking is the inflexibility shown when I tried to arrange to put up a big... More

The room was clean, a thermos flask and 2 cups were provided, there is a central water dispenser (cold, warm and hot water just outside the lift lobby area. Wifi is... More

The hotel is conveniently located near Taipei Main Station Mrt. There are many facilities near the hotel. Just below the hotel they have a restaurant. However, the hotel does not provide breakfast. It would be good if breakfast is provided. The hotel room that I stayed in was comfortable with room to move about after taking into consideration our luggage.... More

I love this hotel as it's centrally located and easy access to public transport. Almost every cab knows where is the hotel when you named ymca hotel. Use exit M5 from Taipei Main Station MRT to walk to the hotel. It takes less than 5 min. If you are one who shops for CDs, there are about 5 around the... More

The Y Hotel is in the process of renovating their rooms. We stayed in a renovated double room on the 10th floor, and it was excellent. The room was spacious by Taipei standards. Located just a 3-minute walk from Taipei main station and within smelling distance of many food options, this property is an ideal base from which to explore... More
