Good location, but it could get really noisy due to the bustling street. Very near the subway too, so it's easily accessible to many places within a short timeframe. Pretty quiet in the morning, but it gets lively from afternoon onwards to late at night.

5 min walk to Ximending station, very convenient location if u like the hustle and bustle of this area, if u intend to stay in the room during the day, note that you might hear the music playing from the streets in the room, however, after the shops are closed around 10pm, you can get a relatively good night's sleep....

This is my second visit to Taiwan and I have chosen to stay at Rainbow Hotel again. Excellent location and hotel staff. There are shops, restaurant, 7-11 and Metro Station within walking distance. I have a standard room with my sister. The room was small but it doesn't matter to us as we only need a room to rest and... More

Traveled to Taiwan for the first time in Feb 2012 and decided on Rainbow Hotel, which is very well located. Although at first we couldn't find the hotel, upon reaching Ximen, it was cause we direct translated the word "rainbow" in Chinese to the locals there, so they didn't understand what we were talking about. I love the vicinity as... More

This is the second time we are traveling to taipei and my wife requested that we book our hotel within the Ximending area. She fond of shopping especially bargain items. Unknowingly, I never knew that it was located on the crossroad of the busiest shopping area in Ximendeng. Our room was a double deluxe and was located at the corner... More

The hotel is at a great location of Xi Men Ding.. the happening place in Taipei where youngsters hang out here.. The receptionist was very friendly. Because we arrived before the check in... More

The staff were all very friendly from check in, which was super quick, until check out, which was also super quick, 12 days later. There was a small restaurant on premises but I did not get a chance to try it. My room was very spacious and the bed was huge. I think king size. My room was located on... More

Although I have to say that the location is rather prime in Ximending and there are many shopping and food nearby, I am appalled by the super old facilities and rooms. There was a stench when we entered the lift and the same for the hotel room and toilet. Everything was very old and rusty in the hotel room and... More
