“Good budget hotel in Ximending!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Recommended by my colleague who frequent Taipei and was glad i made the reservation early as it was very popular.
Good location, near to the mtr and most importantly, it is reasonably priced.
Room was clean and spacious! Basic amenities were provided.
Staff was very helpful and recommended some great destinations for sightseeing.
Will definitely stay there if i go taipei again.

The best features of TS Hotel are the price and the location: the rate for a single room including breakfast can't be beat and the hotel is located only a few meters from the MRT station Ximending only one stop from the main train station and in the middle of the bustling Ximending area with lots of shops and restaurants.

As expected, the room was quite small and as advertised it did not have a window. But the bed was rather a large semi-double than a single and very comfortable and the bathroom pretty spacious and very nicely done. The room came with some nice amenities like free bottled water, teabags and a kettle, the usual bathroom amenities and slippers. Everything was clean and in good condition, but the fridge was rather loud at night.

Service was very friendly and helpful, too, for example they gave me my room even before the official check-in time and helped me print out some documents. This far everything about the hotel was really nice. The only downturn was the breakfast: even though the choice of Chinese and Western breakfast was rather good and everything tasted good, the breakfast lounge was small, windowless and not really comfortable and on my last day I found a hair in the greens and there was a cockroach running around the floor. Disgusting, so next time I would skip breakfast and rather grab something at the Family Mart across the street.

Great location, clean and excellent staff.

Located just 2 minutes walk from Ximen MRT station and the renowned Ximen Ding shopping area. The area has variety of restaurants ... holes in the wall ... but good food and reasonably priced. Walk toward Ximen Ding, turn left at the 3-way intersection and you'll see a Chinese medicine shop. A great/professional massage can be had for 1,000 NT for one hour by a Chinese masseur. Appointment required.

Rooms are clean, safe, although it would be better if some hooks can be installed on the bathroom door (inside) to give more places to hang clothes. wireless is free, although it's rather slow. Direct cable is much faster.

Staff are all friendly and willing to help.

Breakfast is geared toward Chinese clientele and will get old with time, but no problem, as there are so many breakfast places nearby. Highly recommend Fong Da Coffee shop (since 1956), serves GREAT cappuccino and breakfast. Walk toward Ximen Ding, before crossing the main road to Ximen Ding, turn left. The coffee shop is about 30 yards on the left hand side.

Good value for the money. Will stay here again next time we travel to Taipei, definitely.

TS hotel is located 3-5mins from Ximending MRT exit so the location was excellent.
Rooms are clean and service staff and generally friendly.
Just that it is more like a small-scale family run kind of hotel and is pretty small, so don't expect too much.
The Free Wi-fi signal is also pretty low.
Rooms are generally spacious and clean. But the rooms look kind of dark though even with all lights switched on.

We booked the deluxe suite so it's slightly bigger with a couch.
But there's no vanity mirror even though there is what looks more like a study table.
So they only mirrors in the room will be that from the bathroom and a small one from the small wardrobe.

Very good location and helpful staff. Ximending is only a min walk from the hotel. Breakfast was simple but nice. They have toast and porridge with dishes which was good to start the day. However the rooms were alittle run down even though it is only a few years old. They also need to put more attention on the cleanliness of the room. but overall it was a good place to rest after a long day.

Stayed 7nights, booked two rooms during our trip to Taiwan. Affordably and its excellent location is definitely its advantage. Breakfast spread keeps repeating everyday, but if you don't eat much for breakfast, it shouldn't pose as a problem.
Corner rooms have window, but are smaller in size of the actual room but with bigger toilets (shower + bath). Rooms along corridor are significantly larger in size (room) but toilet is smaller (and only have shower).
Beds are comfy, aircon works. Daily events: replenish 2 bots of water, towels change, replenish toiletries, make bed. I would prefer it if they had provided the DND sign as we personally prefer not to make the bed sometimes so we don't have to keep locking up our stuff every single day.
Staff are friendly and knowledgeable, both in person and via email. I've sent them twenty over emails (due to change in travel dates) and they never fail to reply me promptly (within 4hours to 24hours). Request for special bedding were acceded and delivered promptly.
I stayed on the 2nd floor but there was no noise from the outside traffic. However, there's quite a bit of poor sound insulation between rooms and corridors, can hear footsteps, conversation, and tv sound.
Nonetheless, I'd still stay here again should I visit Taipei again.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have window, but are smaller in size of the actual room but with bigger toilets (shower...

Very good choice for anyone going for a holiday in ximen ding / taipei.
Near to ximen ding shopping, family marts, Metro (MRT).
The staffs are very helpful & friendly, always willing to provide you their best knowledge to your questions.
