“Only place I would stay in Taipei!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

PROS:

Location: Right in the middle of the main commercial stretch, right outside the subway (literally), which makes getting around so so easy. There are at least two department stores which are within 5 mins walk and dozens of restaurants and cafes. The area is very safe and very bustling - gives you a sense that you are in the heart of it all.

Rooms: What great value, we got a 2 bedroom suite (with two bathrooms and a dining area) for the same price of a standard 4-5 star hotel room. There are no facilities like a concierge, breakfast or a restaurant, but who needs those when you have plenty of local restaurants just around the corner.

Correspondence: Fast and professional, I didn't have to wait more than 12 hours for Janly or Howard to respond each time I wrote to them.

CONS:

Apartments are well hidden: The apartments are hidden away in huge building complexes (with no signage) which means they are a little harder to find if you are coming by yourself. I would recommend using their transfer service to make the trip that much easier.

Some paper work involved: You will be renting apartments not hotel rooms, so there is going to be paperwork involved i.e. signing contracts and putting down deposits. I wish staying there is as simple as giving them a credit card, but it really is a small price to pay for staying at such a wonderful place!

In short: If you are looking for bigger sized rooms located in the center of the city during your next stay in Taipei and are willing to do without services like breakfast, a business center or a concierge then definitely stay here - you won't regret it!

This is our 2nd time staying in one of the opohill properties, and we absolutely love them both! Locations were both amazing, being close to everything as well as the MRT station. We enjoyed our stay with opohill apartments a lot more than traditional hotels. The fact we get our own washer and dryer unit is a huge plus, and both properties were gorgeous! LIKE!

We stayed in apartment 10B for 4 nights.

Just enough room for 4 persons. The toilet design cause water to leak onto the bathroom floor so we had to stuff towels to soak up the water every time someone showered. Apartment decor is basic but comfortable.

Central location close to mrt stations (Zhongxiao dunhua station) and many quaint eateries just below the apartment (the small Izakaya just opposite the hello kitty cafe is really good!)

Only complaint I have was that I tried to contact the manager regarding a car that was supposed to come take us to the airport (which never came) but he never picked up the call (and I called numerous times).

The Zhong Xiao apartments are spacious and ideal for a small family who needs some extra space. We travelled as a couple with an infant who likes to be mobile, so a hotel room simply isn't enough space. We have stayed at Opohills apartments several times before, and we simply wouldn't stay with anyone else in Taipei. It's our home away from home. Thanks you Janly & Howard!

We had a fantastic experience at Opohills for 4 nights over Xmas holidays. The 2bed/2bath apartment was clean, spacious, well equipped, and very well managed. Howard handled our booking efficiently and upgraded us to the Hepin when it became available. He was very responsive with our requests including a rice cooker and blender for our young kids' food, multiple private car bookings even on his days off, and helped us when we left our backpack (with phone, wallet, everything) in the back of a taxi (thankfully, it was recovered within a few hours). He was also very helpful with all of our questions about Taipei/Taiwan, going out of town, etc.

The apartment itself is comfortable. It has everything that a family of four would require, enough space for the kids to move around, ability to cook (our kids have multiple food allergies so we prepare most of their food at home even when we eat out) and eat in comfortably, washer/dryer and washing detergent, clean linens, sufficient furniture to relax in after a day out. When we checked in, the lighting, appliances, locks, recycling were explained to us and everything was straightforward. They also have a folder with information explaining the essential items in case we weren't listening. We didn't have any difficulties with using the apartment during our time there. As we checked out on a holiday, we just made sure everything was switched off and the apartment was clean. The deposit was returned to us within two days. We had a very straightforward experience. The only thing we could have asked for was firmer beds as the beds were a little on the soft side.

Stayed at ZX6 for 5days in Dec.
Location is great, 1min walk from Zhong Xiao Dun Hua Mrt exit2. Plenty of roadside stalls selling very interesting breakfast in the morning. At night, plenty of stalls selling cheap & yummy street food. Pubs, shopping, food all within walking distance.
Toilet & shower: 2 toilet/shower rooms, very clean. Towels, shower gel, shampoo and toilet papers provided. Need to bring own toothbrush & toothpaste.
Room: 1 queen size bed per room. Cosy bed but only two pillows per bed.
Living room: cosy sofa with flat panel tv. 60+ over channels to choose. Better if tv channel guide is provided. Rubber slippers provided but we prefer our own cotton slippers instead.
Kitchen: didn't cook as there're too many nice street food available nearby. Plates, bowls, cups and cutleries are ample. Kitchen napkins, rubbish bags, detergents are provided.
As there's no house keeping, we have to ensure cleanliness during our stay. Vacuum cleaner, mop etc are provided for our use. Have to throw sorted rubbish at basement rubbish collection room. Very surprised to see such clean and smell-less rubbish collection room! Thumbs up!
As there's a limit to amount of electricity used, we're very careful in switching off lights, aircon, tv etc daily when we leave the apartment. Very troublesome as we have to check everything one by one. It would be good if it is like hotel, simply remove the cardkey to shut down all power.
There's no additional lock nor chain that we can lock the main door from inside of the apartment. Would be good if have one.
Overall stay is great! Will definitely return to Opohills if I were to visit Taipei again!

Our family decided to meet up in Taiwan for the week before Christmas. The six of us coming from different parts of the world found iit extremely easy to get to the apartments. As for myself I got to the apartments by high speed rail from Tao yuan airport then got off at Taipei main station. Linyi was around a ten minute taxi ride from there.

My parents who were familiar with Taiwan and the local language, really enjoyed shopping at the local markets and buying local produce to cook dinner with. They even met some of the local farmers who were selling deliciously sweet oranges and locals who made beautiful meat dumplings and meatballs.

We really lived like locals at our opo hills apartments, we even mastered the amazing rubbish and recycling system in Taiwan. Running after the singing rubbish truck became a highlight of our Saturday night.

Not to mention the apartments is two minute walk from dongmen station.

From start to finish the transaction and communication with Howard my opo hills correspondent was smooth and delightful. Nothing was ever too much trouble for these guys at opo hills.

When we return to Taiwan, we will be definitely be back with opohills. Thanks for an amazing time!!
