Opohills Boutique Apartments
Ranked #51 of 241 Specialty Lodging in Taipei
Reviewed June 20, 2010

My family spent two weeks in Taiwan November 2009. We wanted a more residential experience but feared finding rustic lodging with primitive plumbing. The fates smiled upon us and we found Janly and her fabulous staff at Opohills. Janly knows the amenities Americans have come to expect in lodgings and she goes one better. Her apartments are architecturally designed, professionally decorated, and thoughtfully outfitted with everything Westerners require. They supply the kitchenware that we know how to use, appliances who's instructions and buttons are translated for your convenience. They thought of everything so your stay is not disrupted with housekeeping issues. The bedding, linens, and towels are all the highest quality. It was wonderful to have the family in one place instead of in 2 or 3 hotel rooms. Having a fridge to bring back leftovers and treats bought at the night market really helped us to save $$$. We used the laundry machines a lot not realizing how sweaty we'd get on our walks.

We explored Taipei with the help of the travel guides and neighborhood map provided. The apartments are fabulously located within walking distance of markets, museums, boutiques, and MRT stations.

Opohills staff speak English very well and conduct business as we do in North America. It is very reassuring to be able to easily converse and have familiar rental procedures. Believe me, other rental agencies have some alarming deposits and no adequate explanations. Opohills is the professional rental agency you want to work with for your next vacation or business trip.

We stayed in the Zhong Xiao Unit 4C apartment for 5 nights in June, and I have to say that we did not regret booking this unit, which I found by chance on the web.

Excellent location, right in the heart of Zhong Xiao East road, steps away from Zhong Xiao Dun Hua MRT station, lots of restaurants and shops around. The unit looked exactly the same as the pictures posted on the website. What you see if what you get.

One thing though, I believe there is a bar or KTV nearby, so if you are a light sleeper, you may hear faint music and singing in the middle of night. We could hear it but it did not bother us. (we were too tired !!)

Other comment is the lack of dressing table in the unit, which was a problem for my wife. This can cause some inconvenience for the ladies.

Overall, we had a great stay and would love to come back again !

Was met on arrival by Mr Lai who waited for us below the apartment. He was very kind and courteous and even carried our luggages for us. We stayed in Zhong Xiao C. The apartment it self is very modern and clean with all the amenities to make our stay memorable. All details are not spared to make stay in the apartment as luxuriously comfortable as it can be . From luxurious furnishing to fittings to free high speed internet. One can even find sewing kits in the apartment! The Zhong Xhio Dunhua underground is located just in front of the apartment building and it makes getting around Taipei a breeze. SOGO departmental stores are 10 minutes walk away. Food are available everywhere and there is even a very good 24 hour chinese restaurant opposite the apartment should one feels hungry during the odd hours of the night.

Now that we have a family of 4, staying at an Opohills apartment will be our preferred choice during our frequent visits to Taipei. Folks who have not used their services, should rest assured that their team are professional, communicative and services oriented. While it may be slightly more effort to make arrangements with them than an online hotel reservation system, the benefits of staying in a large apartment in a unbelievably central location is well worth the trade-off, if you plan on staying for any period longer than 3 days.

Did I mention that the location cannot be beat? It's as central to all activities in Taipei as you can get. The ZhongXiao MRT is right on the front of the building, and the apartment sits right across from the San Want Hotel. Within 2 blocks, you have access to the great eateries (both Western and Chinese), including one of the famed Din Tai Fung branches (where we went for brunch just about every day), shopping, transportation, groceries, coffee shops, etc. Ironically, you have all that, and yet the apartment faces the back street, so it is quiet and in a very safe location.

The amenities are similar to a fully furnished hotel, with free wi-fi, soap/shampoo, towels, pots/pans, washer/dryer, hair dryer, dvd/lcd tv, etc. so that you really don't have to worry about buying anything or bringing anything to the apartment. Opohills can even arrange your transportation to and from the Airport (although it's just as easy to get yourself to the San Want Hotel by taxi, bus or MRT).

Overall, I would say that, if one really wants to experience Taipei, booking an Opohills apartment is the way to go!

We spent 9 nights at this apartment and could not have been happier. The location was fantastic, on the main shopping road between Sogo and Ming-Yao department stores. The MRT station was literally downstairs. Lots of food, restaurant as well as street, nearby. The apartment was clean and just like the pictures and youtube videos. Karen and Janly are obviously old hands at this. They speak fluent English so communication was easy. It was so nice to have the extra space and full kitchen, especially with 2 preschoolers. And we paid less than half of what a family room would have cost at the hotel across the street. I've already recommended it to family and friends.
