FX Hotel - Taipei Nanjing East Road
Ranked #134 of 585 Hotels in Taipei
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

The hotel has trendy designs and a lot of Korean and Hongkong travelers tend to stay at this hotel. The location is great and close to MRT and bus stations.

There's a few things about this hotel that I find it disturbing. The staff are young (which is ok) but still need a lot of training. They made me wait for 20 minutes before I could check into my room, and had trouble finding my reservation. This hotel shares floors with China Airlines offices, just as if our rooms are inside an office building.

The bathroom uses see through windows with curtains. Decent hotel with budget price. It would still be personal choice among places to stay in Taipei.

My usual hotel for business trips to Taipei. Wonderful location that is convenient to everything. Walk outside and you are adjacent to the Westin hotel where I frequent every night to the Churchill Cigar Lounge. Downstairs there is a Starbucks and around the corner there is a 7-11. While americans may wonder why i'm so high on 7-11, it is because 7-11 in Asia is different. This is a true convenience store where you can do everything there. Hot meal, pay your utility bill, renew your pre paid phone card, renew your yoyo card for subway,etc. Nice little boutique hotel. Clean room, nice service.

Stayed here 2 nights with my friends, I was let down by the comments and ratings from the fellow travellers towards this hotel.

Location: Good. It's only a few minutes walk from the Nanjing Road East metro station, easy to get access to the places like 101, Ximending by either cab or metro. A good location to hang around for local food if you would like to explore the Taiwanese culture.

Check-in: Staff were generally polite but with the high turnover of hotel guests, it was kind of understaff with only 2 staff on duty when we checked in the hotel in the afternoon. We had to queue up and it took us almost 30 mins to complete the check-in process.

Room fit-out: Furniture was wear-off, the sliding door of the bathroom was so light and looked like it was going to fall down for every time we were trying to close / open the door.

Cleanliness: The couch in the room was dirty with stains, it was a velvet couch while dirt and stains were easily spotted by human eyes. We dared not sit in the couch for the entire stay in this room.

Though I won't return to this hotel for my next trip to Taipei, I'd still recommend FX to travellers who are on a tight budget - FX scores 80 with what you're getting for what you pay.

Room Tip: Not many locals know the exact name for this hotel, just in case you're taking a cab, tell the d...

Huge rooms, very classy and modern/chic look. Great friendly staff, the door is always opened for you. The elevator has a screen in the ceiling playing catwalk fashion shows with electronic music, kinda felt like we were at a nightclub! Good location about a 5min walk from the station, Starbucks close by for coffee etc, plenty of restaurants near by, would stay again for sure.

Everyone here was very helpful and extremely nice. It was the best customer service experience in a hotel we ever had. I would highly recommend this place and if we come back to Taipei we will be staying here again!

The hotel looks decent from the outside. Reception is small and not much seats available.
The rooms are modernly decorated, good ambient and nice layout.

The only fallback is that there is only one restraurant at the hotel but again it is different league comapared to the well reputated chain hotel- most importantly, when you are in Taiwan - why would you have your dinner in the hotel restraurant and not night market??

Stayed four nights to try this new option and saved $450 compared to the other two hotels in the area (Les Suites and Quote) the hotel is not the same standard but fine if you just need a place to sleep.
I would probably stay again if I want to save money as the only minor things against it were the large and noisy tour groups and the fact that the floors were never cleaned and a bit gritty ( no carpets), a case for not walking around in bare feet.
Realistically this is a new three star hotel , the new aspect being the benefit.

The so called trendy look is no where as imposing as Hotel Quotes décor
