Getting there: From Ximen Station Exit 6, you will see Watsons up ahead in front of you when you exit the station. Walk around Watsons with it being on your right, and then turn right into the first small lane (Lane 27). Good9Stay Inn is up ahead on your left.

Service: The staff at Good9Stay Inn are extremely polite and friendly, and ever ready to offer you help or advice, marking out landmarks on the map they provide, etc. They always greeted and smiled, sometimes making small talk as well. very homey and friendly indeed. security was good as there was always someone at the reception throughout the day.

Room: Stayed here for 4 nights. room was small and just enough space to open 1 suitcase and still have walking space. there was a good choice of cable tv available. the hot & cold water dispenser was available in the common corridor for hotel guests. The bathroom was of a considerably good size compared to the room, but we appreciated having that extra space in the bathroom. toothbrushes were provided and there was a soap dispenser too. Aircon was perfectly cold but perhaps cuz the room was small.

Surroundings: Ah Zong Mee Sua is just around the corner. Downstairs Good9Stay Inn there is a '89 Shop' that supposedly is really popular selling makeup etc beauty products, and is also the online distributor for these beauty stuff on websites (??) something like that. anyways, 'Lao Tian Lu' along Chengdu Road nearby is famous for braised stuff which you can also vacuum-pack to bring it home on a flight (e.g. duck tongue, duck wings, etc).

Overall, would definitely stay again. location is great, price is reasonable, felt very comfortable.
Note: Not for people expecting hotel-style rooms/decor.

Staff very friendly and good choice for budget trip. Three of us stay for one night at here, both of us feel comfortable with our room and the staff really helpful. Location near with xinmending walking street. Value for money.

I stayed here for 5 days in Taipei. My favourite thing about the place was the front desk staff. They were SO helpful and friendly. If you have any questions about what to do during your stay, ask them! They really go above and beyond with great suggestions and tips! They helped to try to get us last minute tickets to the south by surfing the net and calling the airport.

The room was great for a 3 star hotel. Clean, beds were really comfy, nice flat screen tv and a spacious bathroom. Also, the air con was glorious!

The area has lots of shopping and restaurants. Though not much of a selection of local Taiwanese food.

You can take a shuttle bus from another hotel just down the street. It costs on $140 Taiwan dollars.

The hotel is right in the middle of vibrant and exciting Ximending. There are lots of restaurants, shops and live entertainment outside. This place has a great atmosphere and I really enjoyed staying there.

The best thing about this hotel is the friendly staff, especially 'Steve-O'. He went above and beyond what was required of him to help us plan and research our trips in Taipei and around Taiwan. He hooked us up with good deals and gave us a lot of good travel suggestions and tips. I hesitate slightly to write this review because it'll probably create extra work for him. He's awesome and our Taiwan trip would not have been as successful if it wasn't for him. He definitely earned the gift and tip we gave him at the end of our stay.

The rooms are not particularly fancy but I only need it to be clean and tidy (which it was). It was also pretty good value and it's only one station away from Taipei Main Station.

Room Tip: Best to get a room with it's own bathroom. AC is a must for the summer months.

The hotel room was small, its common for hotels in Taiwan to be without cupboards but the room didnt have a table as well. It felt cramped at first, we have to practically stay on the bed to watch tv, eat or just surf the net but it's quite cozy and we got accustomed to it after awhile. To provide space for storage, there are hangers provided and built in wall storage area where you can put small items. I would say its still value for money as we paid a good price for the superb location, other hotels right smack in Ximending shopping area are not as cheap as this place. The biggest plus point is the convenience, after shopping around the hotel, it is near enough if you just want to go up to put your things, use the toilet or just take a short break. It is never tiring to go back to the hotel as it is so strategically located.

Only thing we were concerned was that there was only one lift (hotel is on the 5th level), and on one of the days during our stay, the lift was under servicing so we had to take the stairs down. It wasnt any trouble but I guess it might cost some inconvenience if we happen to check in or check out with our luggage.

This hotel (or inn) is the closest you can get to the nightly actions in Ximending. Its in an alley a few steps from the main Ximending walking path. Rooms are uniquely decorated, feels like you are not in a hotel but in a friend's house. Located on the 5th floor of a building with a very small elevator, the guest will have to pass a small alley passing thru small eateries and garment vendors. I stayed for just 1 night since I wanted to walk around Ximending on my last night in Taipei. Also, this inn is just a few minutes walk to the MRT station and just 1 stop to Taipei Main Station where you can catch the airport bus for just NTD 125.

It is jus within 5mins walk to Ximen station, very convenient as 7-11 and Watsons are just around the corner too. Only thing is that the hotel located along the alley, its quite dark in the night but no issue, just few steps walk back only. Room is clean and tidy. All staffs are very helpful and friendly, especially a staff named Peter. He also recommended where is the best place to shop and eat. value for money, will definitely go back to them again! :D
