“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Ximen is a great area to use as a base. I traveled around town for three days. The street under my window was always busy but the only noise was a band setup in the late morning. This is a young and trendy area of town and the hotel fits the area. European style rooms. The split bathroom and common sink would make it easy to travel with a loved one of friends. The bar and morning breakfast was great. Such a diverse hotel in and equally diverse area. A great place IMO.

Much enjoyable stay at the hotel. Location is excellent. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and large. Although it took me a phone call to the front desk to be able to locate the tv remote control :)

Will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Taipei.

Overall fit-out within the room is basic (feels like Ikea) but large, comfy bed and good overall design concept. Entrance of the hotel is at the back but easy to spot, lobby is upstair. There will be a staff showing you the way when you reach the entrance @ ground floor. Fast check in, cleanliness is up to par, entrance of Ximen subway is approximately 5 minutes’ walk away. Clean toilet @ the lobby. Given that it is located inside Ximending, noises from the street may travel into the room (especially for areas near the window). However, this is still acceptable as noise level will die down after 11pm when stores shut down for the day. Breakfast is ok with a fair selection of western and chinese food. Love the complimentary yellow flip-flops in the room!

The hotel is located next to a high end shopping mall. Unless you are getting Potter (which is cheaper in Taiwan), otherwise, our airport is good enough. The breakfast is a good spread (but comes with a price) but not very helpful for people (like me) who only goes for the usual bread and butter for breakfast. They even have braised pork rice and cooked noodles for you on the spot.
However, personally I feel that there are quite a few places which can be good choices for breakfast in Ximending itself if you do a bit of homework and walk around. Else McDonald is just downstairs across the road.

The room is roomy and what I like best is the toilet and the shower area are actually 2 separate cubicles and the washing area is outside both cubicles. The floor are not carpeted which means less dusty. They gave those rubber slippers (tongs type) which is helpful in the shower cubicle, which is quite different from the rest of the hotels that offer the thin white fabric slip ons. Unfortunately for TV channel, there is a limited choice on kids channel. So the TV is not too helpful in entertaining my young children. There is a safe in the room itself which doesn't seemed like a common or standard hotel equipment in the other 3 hotels that I stayed in during this trip. There is a pantry along the corridor that you can have your water filled up so there is no need for the boiler which is helpful.
There are some hidden spots in the room (behind chairs etc) that I spotted some balls of hair and dust, so cleaning can be improved as compared to my last 1 year ago.
Internet connection was good by the way!

Convenient location, with brand new, trendy, stylish design.
Breakfast quality is nice. The ginger shower set they provided is out of expectation. It is so refreshing. Yet, the bed is clean and comfortable.

Young Trendy Hotel in Busy District 


I stayed for one night June, the hotel was easy to get to being in XiMenDing area which is a young shopping district. The car wasn't able to stop at the front of the hotel as it was a holiday (the street is pedestrian only on holidays) but only a 10m walk from where the car dropped us off. 


The hotel has a artsy trendy young feel to it. The rooms were simple and modern. The toilet and shower were separate which means you don't have to wait for bathrooms if you have 2 people. 


The breakfast had an excellent selection of western and Chinese food. 


The hotel itself is located around 10mins from the XiMen train station which is on the line with many tourist attractions. The XiMenDing district itself is well known for shopping and eating and the hotel it situated right above a eslite store (like a young department store). 


Overall a great stay for it's value, would definitely go back again!
