“Comfy hotel near the MRT station”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Stayed at this hotel on my weekend trip to Taipei. Since I flew in to Songshan airport insted of Taoyuan, this was an excellent hotel to stay. It took about 10 minutes from the airport and was within a walking distance from the MRT. The hotel is close from the city center and there are nice restaurants and stores near by. The hotel was in a big office building occuping only few floors and the locals did not know about the hotel. But since this hotel is right next to the Westin Taipei you can tell the taxi driver to take you to the Westin. Also a starbucks is located in the Westin for coffee lovers and a MOS burger is just across the street.

My wife and I stay 3 nights. Taxi driver normally don't know this hotel. But when u mention Westin Hotel, they will surely know where to go. Because FX hotel located just next to Westin. So mention Westin hotel to taxi driver if he doesn't know where is FX. This hotel is actually taken up a few floors in an office building. Location is quite good which is around 300m to metro station. Lots of small shops around for food as well. Liaoning night market is nearby but this night market is so small that there you can walk through it in 1min. Only food stalls in this night market and nothing else. The concept of this hotel is funky and modern. I mean they decorated it like a disco or a night club. Black color for almost all furniture and walls. Even the light looks like a disco itself. The room is clean but got one smell when enter. But after awhile we get use to it. There is no bath tub but there is a big office table in the room. They should remove this table and make way to larger toilet or room. Wireless is strong and smooth. LCD TV hidden in wall cabinet. Bathroom shower is excellent. For trendy room, u will have curtain covering the bathroom rather than a wall. Mean u can see people showering when curtain remove. Overall, hotel stay is excellent.

“for the price i paid, roughly half price off the rack rate, it was simply awesome and couldn't ask for more!!” if there's good promo for this hotel (which i got), try it out and it's definitely worth the $$$ paid! very very helpful front office staff and although i won't be expecting 5-star service like the neighbor (westin), they were still available to aid if you have any questions at all .... from food to forex (forex limited to very few places, so be warned). superb for business, couples, singles and those who are looking for gd value when there's a superb offer like i got!

Room Tip: new (open end-2011), trendy and convenient to mrt (subway)

We stayed in FX Hotel Taipei for 2 nights. It was our first time at this hotel, and at booking, we were attracted by its reasonable price, trendy furnishings and being fairly new. We were not disappointed.

FX Hotel is situated right alongside Westin Taipei. A lot of the taxi drivers have not heard of the hotel (as it is new), so telling them it is besides Westin is an easy way to direct.

The hotel is situated within 7 mins walk to the nearest MTR station, which connects easily to the shopping belts of Taipei (like Ximending, Zhong Xiao, etc)

The hotel shares the same building with an office block, and the lobby is relatively small.

The staff are helpful. The rooms are fairly spacious, and comes with warm and trendy furnishings, a lounge chair, and a study table in each room.

The bed is very comfortable, and the room layout is efficient, and yet more than enough room for all our luggages.

Full toiletries are provided, and their shower gel and shampoo are amongst the best quality we have used in Taiwan (and we have stayed 3N in Sheraton Taipei too).

The breakfast at the hotel is a disppointment, though. Limited variety and below average in terms of quality. We decided to have breakfast at Din Tai Fung on our second morning instead.

All in all, for the price of the rooms, its comfort and good location. We'd recommend to our friends, and would also stay again for our future trips.

Stayed there for 3 nights with adult sibling. The trendy hotel has very dark hallways and rooms so I won't recommend it for family stays unless you have very brave little ones. The rooms are well equipped with all the necessities and cleaned everyday. Weird to have a fake window for the "no window comfort double" and we tend to oversleep without daylight but an alarm clock would do. Wi-fi in the room saved our days! Did not have breakfast included so no comment on that.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and helped us with receipt of the delivery of my souvenirs without surcharges. The location of the hotel is quite nice given that 5 mins from MRT, but to go to Ximending / Danshui / Beitou (any of the stations on the red line), we always have to transfer twice to get to any of those places and can be quite a walk after a tiring day of travelling. Nice that it is one station away from Sogo so we get to travel light on our last day before our flight. As well, it is easily accessible from the airport by Chang Rong airport bus. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to couples and friends who would want to travel within Taipei only and get a sense of the local culture.
