Very convenient to go for shopping and food and train station. Only around 5 minutes walk to ximend station. Ouside the hotel there is alot of food stalls. Room is big, but abit old. Aircon is not strong enough as we can still feel the heat in the room. Most probably is because we went taipei during july the hottest... More

It's location is by far the best thing this hotel has. Located in the centre of Ximending district which is easily accessible by metro, it is one door away from a variety of restaurants, food stalls and shops. It would be hard to get bored in the area. However, a two night stay is more than enough. Hotel servicing is... More

Good location, but the rooms are little dirty, lots of bugs. The bathroom floor always wet. The carpet still stuck in the 60s. The thread all worn out. When it rains the storm rain water hitting the advertising board making the sound almost unbearable to sleep. The staff are nice and helpful.

It being in the middle of the Ximending district in Taipei, going anywhere was very convenient. There was a Hao Da Da Ji Pa (Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken) directly opposite the hotel and the famous Ay-Chung Flour-Rice Noodle was a few shops away, The front desk personnel was very friendly and eager to assist with any queries you have about...

So here's a great hotel for the 21 years old and below, in my opinion. Basically, in the heart of Xi Men Ding, youngsters everywhere and definitely good for those who wants to be part of it. However, there were "youngsters" who weren't very polite who likes to linger and hover around the lobby of the hotel, smoking away. There... More

At the heart of Ximen, this hotel is valued for its location. I lived in the cheapest double room for 2 nights. At this price point, the room is neat and clean enough. There are some down-sides of this hotel: The bath tube is slippery, be careful when taking bath. There is street noise from the street singers, although they... More

We stayed in Rainbow Hotel (executive double room) for 3 nights during our Taipei trip. Our room is the most expensive double room. At a price of less that S$100 per night and the huge space of the room, I'd say it is really value for money. Located on the 9th floor, our room was surprisingly quite, even though the... More

This hotel was right smack in the middle of Ximending. An excellent choice if you are planning to shop in there. It is also a 10 minutes walk to Xi Men Station which is very centrally located station in Taipei as well. Room was small, Wi-fi was okay. As we booked with Agoda.com, no breakfast was provided. Staff was attentive... More
