A New Cosy Hotel with Free Wifi facilities. Just a short walk from the busy Ximending.
Hotel breakfast is simple & sufficient.
A hotel I will use again for the next visit.
Take note the street stall on cart is not permanent, make sure you grab your food before payment. They run when the patrol comes. Nevertheless the foos is delicious.

Room Tip: Take down to the shopping area for supper for even dinner. Lots of Shopping & food choice.

Ximen Citizen used to be an old apartment, and they bought over the building and rebuild it into a hotel. The exterior looks new and modern, compared to the other "established hotels" located in the Ximending Area. Upon entering, the reception will always greet the guests and a smile without fail. The lobby is small, with a small toilet and 2 computers that guests can use. The lift is also very small, but what can you expect from such a small hotel? My room was located on the 3rd floor. Once you step out of the lift, you will be taken away by the design as it was really very modern, chic and beautiful! Sadly, this hotel does not have room cards, instead they uses a key, which is troublesome at times. My room was very nice and warm. It was enjoyable staying in my room. The mattress / pillow / comforter was soft and thick. The toilet was clean. If I have to pin-point something bad about this hotel, I would say Cleanliness is their weakness. When I arrived, I had 3 hairs on the bed, a few on the toilet floor, which made me feel uncomfortable. When you step out of the hotel, there is a 7-11 minimart opposite and a Family Mart beside the hotel. It's takes less than 5 mins to walk to Ximending which was very convenient.

Why should you stay here??
- Location; Newly Renovated; Excellent Service from the Staff; Warm and welcoming

Reasons you should consider not staying here
- Not any I can think of!

Hope that my review helps you to make a good decision! :)

Thiss hotel just renovated. The exterior might look cheap but the interior is so different. Its sooo nice and their service is the best out of the 7 hotels i went in taiwan. Although the room is small, its so comfy. Its just a 3 minutes walk away from ximending. The reception service is really very good. Highly recommended. We requested to clean up for our room, and I think the cleaner auntie forgotten about our toilet roll so when we come back, we called the housekeeping for a toilet roll. The staff who came refused to accept our tips and explained that its their fault. This is really a good hotel!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are bigger if you dont mind corner room.
