Short distance to the airport and walkable to nearby Mass Transit Railway station. Recently renovated but the job is haphazardly done, may be even rushed. Good prices we got but this is an expensive part of Taipei. Close to many fast food joints. Staffs here need a bit of training in customer service.
We stay here every time we come to Taipei. Since 2 years ago the hotel has renovated the rooms - new furniture and bathrooms. Though it looks nicer the carpet is still old and disgusting. And the tiles in the bathroom have holes in corners so water goes in and I’m afraid of the mold that might be in there. The best part is that they have machines for you to do laundry. Also the location is so convenient! But this last time there was a slight stench in our room that wouldn’t go away, so we might have to find another hotel next time. It’s too bad.
This is my second time staying at this hotel. They have since renovated the rooms. The room I stayed in was clean but the toilet was choked twice. We were advised not to throw toilet paper into the toilet bowl but into the toilet bin. The staff was efficient and managed to resolve the problem very quickly on both occasions. The hotel has coin-operated washing machines and dryers on levels 6 and 7 and hot, warm and cold water dispenser at the lift lobby. Exit from M8 of Taipei Main Station, turn left and cross the zebra crossing in front of 7-eleven. Continue walking straight and you will see another 7-eleven on the right. The hotel is next to the building with the 7-eleven and directly opposite a bookshop.
Location was good and convenience. Walking distance 2 minutes to Taipei MTR station. Opposite hotel have so many food stalls, family Mart, 7 Eleven and Saloon. Hotel is clean and staff were friendly. Will be back for my next visit.
I can only rave about this lodging option in Taipei. A friend who used to live here recommended it to me and it did not disappoint. Firstly, it is very affordable. Secondly, the location can't be beat -- it's only a block from Taipei Main train station, which is the central hub for High Speed Rail, Airport Express trains, MRT subway lines, buses and more. It's also walking distance to some of the most impressive sites in Taipei, including the Chiang Ka--shek Memorial, National Concert Hall, National Theater, 2/28 Peace Park, National Taiwan Museum, Presidential Office Palace, Lungshan Temple and more. The reception staff are very welcoming and friendly, speak good English, and offer free bag storage if you are travelling around the country and don't want to haul all of your bags with you. I stayed here for 6 nights and then returned at the end of my trip in Taiwan for a final night... and both of my rooms were wonderful -- spacious, comfortable, quiet, great wi-fi, and big bathrooms with nice showers. My rooms also had views out to Taipei Main station, with its impressive roof line, which was nice. Although breakfast is not included, you can get a voucher for 100 NT and eat at the YMCA Royal Host Restaurant which is in the lobby of the hotel, which is very affordable and convenient. For an additional 22 NT you can upgrade to an ever heartier breakfast, which was great. All in all, the Y Hotel Taipei felt like my home-away-from-home in Taipei and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend it!…
