The hotel is family operated. I would describe it more like a daily rental service apartment rather than a hotel. Front door can be difficult to find as it is simple likes a door of a basic apartment building. Make sure you have the phone number handy when you arrive because the chance of someone open/answer the door is slim,...

I booked the hotel by picking (I think) the best room. It turned out that the room was not in the hotel. In fact, it was an apartment in that area. The room was spacious with huge bathroom (and bathtub), microwave, sink, and refrigerator. Basically, you can live here. Though the check-in process took like forever (They didn't have the...

We were Taipei an extra day due to the typhoon and stayed in this hotel for one night. It is definitely simple and no-frills but is quite nice in its restrained style. The room doors have a movie set theme image on them, a bit incongruous but amusing. The room itself is a bit austere but comfortable. It lacks a...

Just what a solo traveler on a reasonable budget needs -- close to the subway and the Red House, with lots of food options nearby as well. The amenities are humble but there's no reason to spend a trip indoors anyway.

The lobby is small as it is a hotel renovated from a shoplot only that we can't stand all together at the front desk. Only 4-5 rooms in the same floor. Room is not big but we have enough space. Good Location - Just 5-10 mins walk from Ximending LRT Station as stated in their introduction. And also, nearby Ximending...

I've been to Taiwan a few times and this is the worst stay I encountered. I booked here for two nights. On the first day, I was told the room reserved for me is unavailable as the lighting is faulty (couldn't off) n is caused by the previous traveller. I was thinking how can a tourist spolit the lighting becos...

If there is a minus score, I would give it to this hostel. This hotel, A Simple Place has a big TROUBLE in booking management. We booked 2 rooms x 2 nights (Sat and Mon night while we went to another town on Sunday night). First night we arrived at the hotel in the evening and found that both of...

Took me sometimes to realized that small door is actually the entrance. Wish there's an obvioius sign outside! It's great that the staff offered to bring our luggage into our room before check-in time, so we're able to travel lite. She also handed in a small local map and explained with friendly smile. During our two-night staying, the room was...
