Stayed for 4 night in Nov 2012 in a triple room. We took the Kuo-Kuang Airport shuttle to Taipei Main Station. Shuttle is vailable every 15mins, ticket counter is located before the exit to bus stops. Cost NT125 (adult) NT65(child) and takes about 60mins to reach Taipei Main Station.
The bus stopped at the main road infront of the Taipei Main Station. Nihao is about 5mins walk from there. If arrive by train or MRT or if you arrive on a raining day (like us), you can actually stay dry by taking the route from Taipei Main Station and take the M3 exit from there. Take the escalator at M3 exit and turn left. Cosmos Hotel is less than 10 steps away and the main entrance to Cosmos Commercial building is another 2 steps away! You will never get wet walking from the MRT to Nihao and vice versa.
I booked through Agoda and check in was a breeze. Reception counter and the common room is located at level 11, with complimentary cofee, tea, biscuits and filtered water. We were given a room at level 5. The room was pretty small and without window, comes with a shelf table, a flat lcd tv on the wall and of course, our double decker bed. The mattress and pillows were comfortable, we had good night sleep. There are 4 rooms in the unit we were staying, one of it is ensuite so we were sharing the toilet and bathroom with the tenants of the other 2 rooms but hardlly queue for anything. There are 2 wash basin located outside of the bathroom/toilet. We had no noise problem throughout our stay and the room and bathroom are kept clean all the time.
If you are a light traveller, you can leave your towel at home and rent one from them at NT50 and laundry service is provided at NT150 per bag (a pair of jeans and 3 to 4 shirts perhaps). You may leave your dirty laundry with them in the morning before going out and collect in the evening! The reception counter is closed at 11pm.
As it was raining most of the days when we were there, so we spent quite a lot of time at the Station Front Metro Mall right at the Taipei Main Station. Went to night markets at Shilin, Ximending, Longshan temple & Keelong. The best price is still at Station front metro mall.
If i am to go visit Taipei again, I will not hessitate to stay at Nihao but will definitely ask for the ensuite room for convenience purpose.
