Macchi Hotel
Ranked #89 of 282 Specialty Lodging in Taipei
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Firstly the positives - The location is great for access to Jingmei MRT, and there are local amenities right outside, including a night market and a moderately large superstore right next to the hotel. The room and ensuite bathroom were a good size and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable - I had no problems sleeping after a long journey.

The main problem is that the interior is very dated and worn out in a few places, and the entrance is an anonymous looking passage next to a food stall, which leads to an elevator. There was potentially a good view from the room but the window had frosted glass and proved impossible to open due to lack of maintenance/cleaning. Mirrored tiles above the beds add to an impression of seediness.

If the surroundings don't really concern you and you're just looking for a cheap place to stop then this could be for you.

This hotel is near the subway train but it's a bit run down. Good and friendly staff but the room was old. The mattress was hard as a rock and I couldn't sleep the first 2 nights there. I had a total of 4 hours sleep the first two nights there. The bathroom was dirty, the jacuzzi was very old and water leak out of the tub and run out to the drain. I got bed bug bites on my arms and legs and also one on the neck. The good thing is it's near the subway train station and the night market is a block away. I definitely wouldn't sleep here unless you're on a really tight budget. It's far from all of the attraction of the city as well so it takes a bit to get into town.

If you are just looking for an affordable place as a transit point to all the sights in Taipei then this may be the hotel for you. Be aware that due to this, forget the frills eg a nice accessible lobby or current hotel standards. Its a somewhat livable place with advantages in its location which is very near the Taiwan Metro (MRT / LRT) and a Night market just behind the hotel. It is also a stones throw away from food and cloths shops.

If you are not fussy and just want a place to sleep while spending the day outside exploring Taipei this hotel is suitable and convenient.

Room Tip: Dont believe in the photos you see on any website. Looks good but notice they did not show any shots...
