New California Hotel
Ranked #32 of 188 Hotels in Xinbei
Reviewed January 9, 2012

My sons and I stayed here for 3 nights around Christmas. We were very happy with the service and the room. Although the room was small, they were willing to add an extra bed for us (for a small nightly fee). The best feature of the hotel is its location. It's right across from the Xindian MRT station, which is just a short ride (20 min) away from Taipei's city center. Not only that, the hotel is located right by a picturesque river, in the Bitan Scenic Area. The promenade along the river is a great place for a morning stroll, and riverside cafes and eateries abound in the evenings.

The room itself was clean and adequate for everything we needed. The internet worked great (both wired and wifi). Coffee, tea, and extra munchies were provided for free (nice!). There were plenty of movie channels for the kids (not that we had the time after a full day of sightseeing). The bed was very comfortable, which, for a 3-star hotel, is more than I can expect. Soft, clean, and comfy pillows and comforters made for very restful nights. The only negative is that the rooms do not have heat--I guess this is not a common feature in SE Asia. In the winter, it can get chilly in the rooms.

The breakfast, as reviewed by others, was not their best feature, although it was better than I had expected. It was definitely a Taiwanese-style breakfast, and I am happy with that. They do have toast and rolls, coffee and tea, which is what you get in most 3-star hotels anyway. So I can't complain (though they really can do better in keep their food hot).

Finally, the service. Great hotel staff. Nice and friendly, and they really do get to know you by name. So, for a little mid-range business hotel that treats you like a VIP and gives you a good-night's sleep, you really can't do better than staying at New California in Xindian. I'd definitely stay there again when I travel to Taipei.
