Located near Ximen mrt. The building of the hotel is very tired and the lift in a sorry condition. Since the hotel only occupied 7th and 8th floor, hotel guest are forced to use the same lift with the local residence. However, when we reach the lobby at 7th floor, its like entering a different world, the lobby and the... More

Its located at a rather old buildings at 7th floor and 8th floor. The lobby is a bit dirty and old. Room is consider fair,... More

This affordable hotel is not for fussy customers. Located approximately 7mins walk to the Ximen Metro Station and the trendy Ximending, Amenities such as convenient stores, eateries and laundry shop are located near the hotel. Starbucks is just across the street. The hotel itself could use some refreshing. The room looks old and and not as clean in certain areas.... More

This hotel is located in a very convenient location....you can have breakfast, lunch till supper within the vicinity. 7 Eleven & Family Mart is just a few units away. All rooms were designed differently and the hotel is located close to the Ximen train station. Walking distances to many cafes and eateries. Room was clean and I have no problems... More

Very Old Hotel but convenient as it is in Ximengding, only 5 minutes walk to Ximen station. The pictures of rooms look good on website but it is totally different when check in. Simple breakfast - bread, sausage, ham etc Would not stay again.

No wifi, horrible walkway to the room. Enquired about the wifi, Lady receptionist staff with rude atitude did not even apologise and replied with super rude attitude that could surf in the lobby. My most disappointing experience in taiwan.

The triple pax room has two queen sized bed, but it's very small as compared to the VIP suite. The hotel is old at the outside and only occupy 7th and 8th floor of the building. However,... More

The hotel has a very nice location. It is in the heart of ximending. A lot of shops around the area. Lots of restaurants, coffee shop, tea house, mini mart. It is about 5 minutes walk to the mrt station(ximen station). The shops around the area are comparatively cheap and they sell nice and fancy things. But the hotel is... More
