What is so good about this hotel
- clean rooms
- great location
- snack bar at the reception area at level 2
- warm customer service

3 of us stayed in a 3 pax room which had a double bed and a single bed. The room size was slightly small as we had 3 luggages, but we had no complaints as the room was clean and cosy with a large tv in front of the bed.

the hotel had a great location in Ximending 西門町。it is about 5 mins walk from the ximen metro station. there is a 7-11 50m away from the hotel and shopping starts right below the hotel. But first you would have to locate the hotel which might not be easily noticeable as the reception was at the 2nd level of the building in a small alley.

What i liked most was the free snack bar and drinks area at the reception area. there are free soft drinks, coffee and tea with complimentary snacks which is opened 24-7. feeling thirstly in the middle of the night? no problem, just head down to the recep at lvl 2 to grab a drink.

The staff were very friendly. I guessed Taiwanese are all friendly. My friend had some packages sent to the hotel, and the staff left us a note to collect our package at the recep area where they kept it for us.

Its a great 3 days stay in the hotel.

The best thing I like this hotel is its snack bar where you can grab anything especially the good coffee at anytime at your convenience. Not to mention its central location at Ximenting where bus and MRT station is just at next junction. Other good offers from the hotel including the nice design of bath tub (you can soak your sore foot every night after all day walking), security elevator access, laundry and umbrella. However, I dont like the pillow, it is too hard and the air-cond in our room was dripping hence forcing us to change room the next day.

Stay in this hotel for 4 night with my family, the location of this hotel is in the heart of Ximenting.
The room is very clean and the staff is professional, well-trained. Upon arrival, check in was prompt, hassle free. Complimentary snacks & cup noodles was provided at mini lounge area. The whole stay was extremely pleasant. Value for money. Would definitely stay there next trip.

Everything positive that you have read about the hotel is true. Strategic location, warm customer service, clean and new hotel rooms, awesome snack bar. My partner and I will not look elsewhere if we were to visit Taipei again.

The only difficulty is you may not notice it at one glance because the reception is at 2nd floor. What you should look out for is once you see 7-11, turn right until you notice a sign "Via Hotel" on your left. It is a placard stand among some clothes store.

Located in the heart of Xi men ding. The room is clean and modern. The staff are friendly and would recommend night markets you should go. Enjoyed the snack bar as we tend to get hungry in the middle of the night. Perfect combination of supper ( Coke and cup noodles ) We enjoyed relaxing in the bath tub after a whole day of shopping.

The hotel also provided a free laundry service and you can ask for washing powder from the counter.

Overall, we had a great stay in Via hotel.

It is conveniently located at Ximending, with a 7-11 at the corner. The staff are friendly and always there to offer tips and directions for travelling ard Taipei. Love their snacks corner which helped alot for tea-breaks or early/late check-in.
The rooms are terrific, spacious enuff for a couple with large luggages. Love their see-thru toilet (with blinds) and the japan-style bath-tub! The rates are definitely reasonable and would recommend to others and I would definitely book with them again.

I am a frequent traveler to taiwan thus I was skeptical of the location initially because Via Hotel is in one of the alley where cars are unable to enter so you will have to drag your luggage to the main road which was not a big problem after staying there.

I found the hotel really nice with cosy furnishings, clean rooms, free snacks at lobby, great wifi, friendly staff loaded with info and whats not! super comfy bed, spacious room at a really good price and its near the ximen station~ the only little problem is the few steps that you have to carry your luggages up or down before reaching the lift to the lobby at level 2. The entrance of the hotel is shared among 2 clothing store which would be empty at night. 7-11 is right around the corner and ximen station is really just steps away. You won't go wrong with this hotel at this rate, but beware of the double room's bathtub that you will have to climb in and out daily, the tub is deep, you can soak your feet after a tired day but be careful not to slip and fall as its really very high to climb over.

ahh i will stay at via hotel again!
