I had booked a quad room. However, the room was a lot smaller that what was shown on the website. I was a little disappointed with that but otherwise the location is very central. Room and bathroom was relatively clean.

My friends and I arrived in Taipei at 11pm only to find that the hostel we had booked with didn't exist at the address they had given us, and the owner didn't answer when we called. We were worried about finding a place to sleep that night when we came across this hotel just down the street. We weren't sure... More

Business as usual. Stayed there 2 nights. Room was as complete and clean as before. For breakfast, they has added custard buns to its varieties. If too fussy about the breakfast, just go downstairs and fingd food along the road or next road Xining Road.

We stayed at the hotel on three different occasions within two weeks. The first time we got rooms at the 8th floor. The rooms were clean and big enough for two respectively three persons. The two other times we got rooms at the 7th floor, although our booking was exactly the same. On the 7th floor there was mold in... More

Well lets say the pictures need updating. The hotel has been updated, while we were there they were painting the rooms. The hotel is located on the 7th and 8th floor. Staff were pleasant the roos were small and clean, the shower is very slippery even with shower mat. Beds are comfortable and wifi was good. The hotel location was... More

The moment we stepped foot in the building, our initial thought was, "is this a hotel??!". So up we went to the 7F which is the reception area. The elevator was small and old but still working mighty fine. At the reception, we were greeted by a nice staff who immediately tended to our reservation and immediate additional room request...

Having stayed in other budgeted hotels in Ximending such as Gosleep Hotel, Good Ground hotel, Teachers' hostel, etc, King Shi is my still my best choice in terms of cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness. They also provide tours and airport transfer. Less attractive is the breakfast which is the same throughout but enough to fill a hungry stomach. This hotel is... More

There was a foul smell in the room. Could also smell the opposite room smoking and requested the staff to request other guest not to smoke but the staff said that it can't be helped as they have no right to ask guest not to smoke. Remembered clearly that I requested for non-smoking room. The bedsheets weren't clean and concierge... More

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
