The hotel may be a little away from the hustle bustle of the city but it is not inconvenience at all. You can easily get there using the MRT. Take the Luzhou-Nanshijiao line(yellow line) and the hotel is located directly above the St Ignatius High School station. In fact it is connected to the little mall St Ignatius Plaza. The surrounding area has all you need for a convenient of a hotel stay. There is a 7-11 right and few other 24hours family mart around the area just in case you feel like a bite at wee hours.
How do we get there from TaoYuan airport? We took a bus from the airport by purchasing the ticket at the North entrance upon exit from the arrival hall – just in case you are confused, there is an information counter right after the arrival hall, where the friendly personnel (They speak English as well) are very informative and will be able to provide information on the busses. There are plenty of airport buses available for you to choose, if you contact the hotel, they will provide you a map and information of buses to take ( take bus #1840 (Taoyuan International Airport to Taipei Songshan Airport) and get off at Xingtian Temple Station, transferring to Taipei Metro (Zhonghe-XinLu Line) and exit from exit 2 at St. Ignatius High School Station.) but when we arrived, we follow the Information counter advise instead and took bus no 5201 and alight near MingquanWest road station and took the train to St Ignatius High school station. Not to worry, the friendly bus driver will inform you when you reach the station. The bus ride took approximately 45mins. From MingquanWest road station it took 4 stations to reach St Ignatius High school station. Once you arrived, take Exit 2. Upon the first escalator turn left and you will reach the level B2 of ths St Ignatius plaza, take the elevator up to level 6 and you will be at the lobby of the Park City Hotel. Alternatively, if you arrive at a time that the plaza are yet in operation, then take the escalator all the way to level 1 where you will reach the main entrance of the hotel and you can take the elevator to level 6.
By the way if you are a person that can’t live without all the communication Apps (wassap, Line, wechat, etc), then proceed to get a mobile data package at the airport. We paid TWD300 only for 5 days unlimited internet data usage, although WIFI is available in most of the restaurants in Taipei, but it will be nice to have your own access anytime you like especially if you are in the MRT or visiting some non-wifi available spots where you can post your wonderful moment on FB or Instagram etc anytime as you wish.
The check-in at the hotel was swift and we were upgraded to a deluxe room with a balcony. We were given a brief introduction of the hotel by the Receptionist. The hotel uses key card access to the room floors which is part of the security features available. The cleanliness of the room was immaculate. The room was equipped with all the necessary facilities – coffee/tea making, free WIFI, great TV channels selections, Safety box, welcome fruits, daily mineral water replenishment etc. and the room has a reasonable comfortable size. The hotel has a gym and also a free self-laundry service although we don’t get a chance to use it, but this is definitely a plus point for hotel guests.
Travelling through and from this hotel are just a matter of knowing which interchange station one is heading towards. Hence the MRT guide is very crucial. Get an Easy MRT card is essential. You pay TWD500 for a TWD400 credit (TWD100 as deposit, upon refund, will be charge TWD20) and you can use it for all MRT and bus ride.
The only area of improvement, perhaps would be the product knowledge of the Front desk staffs on how to get to some of the tourist attractions ie Jiu Fen , Shi Fen, recommendations of Hotsprings etc – they seems to have only the very basic knowledge but that did not create much hassle as Taiwanese are friendly and we easily find out information from people around that we met. Well recommended hotel!!
