“Cozy and good location”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is a boutique hotel situated right next to Shi Men Ding. Rooms are spacious. Front desk and reception personnel are polite and helpful. Situated right next to subway station makes travel very convenient. Breakfast is only basic but you can find all sorts of food stalls around.

Pros: 1. very convenient location, steps away from subway station, next to vibrant shopping and eating area. taxi stand right outside of hotel entrance

2. quiet rooms, wifi worked fine.

3. new and modern feel, good selection of breakfast

4.professional staff at the front desk

Cons: 1. twin beds are very close each other, almost together, not good for non-couples.

2. aircon was blowing my head. I had to turn it off at night. please consider if you plan to visit in hot days and easy to get headache like me.

3.twin rooms are very small.

all being said, I would still recommend it to my friends, too convenient, clean and new.

Situated at a very convenient location, just mins walk away from the MRT station with convenient store nearby. at night when you need to get some things, you can drop by at the nearby 24hrs Watsons at about 5mins walk away. Hotel is situated beside the main road therefore it is very easy to hail a cab or to alight. Around it is the famous XiMenTing with a lot of good shopping and food. Breakfast was quite good. Very clean room though it is small but very comfy. Modern and stylish with black interior. those who do not like dim light might not like it as the corridors lightings are all dim. love the decorations around especially their mascot dragon which I did not get as the pricing is quite high. Toilet is great. Comes with normal Shower head, Rain shower, back spray and bottom spray which is very unique. Staffs there are all very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping as well responded very efficiently. There is nothings I can actually complaint from this hotel just the slight lack of walking space(after all the shopping, I have no space to walk and have to jump around). Had a great stay and will definitely come back again.

A new hotel @Ximending, very nice location. I stayed there for 3 nights on Sep 2013, they upgraded me from Cityview Premier Room to Suite Room without charges.
Highly recommend this hotel because:- (1) located next to MRT; (2) taxi stand just in front of the hotel; (3) Ximending area just close to the hotel; (4) Front desk services is excellent; (5) the room facilities are good.

Room Tip: Try to book Cityview Room

We stayed at this hotel as a family of four and loved the premier dual queen room as it accommodated us all perfectly. Our room had a bath and an excellent shower, 2 sinks and everything else you would need. So close to the Mrt and lots of shops, 7/11's etc. Front desk staff were so helpful especially as we had to cancel our trip to Hualien due to typhoon usagi. Will definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to go back to Taipei!

Location wise is superb, 2 min to the Ximen MRT. Staff is friendly and helpful. Decoration of the lobby and rooms is great. Hotel is new and room interior design is minimalist and nice. No bathtub but i enjoyed the showerhead which comes in different modes of spraying. Shower gel and shampoo is olive which smells great after a bath.

Great breakfast selection of salad bar, juices and fruit, Dim Sum, sausages, taiwan porridge selection, western cheese & crackers with ham selection, rice and noodles. Coffee is also freshly grinded and aromatic.

There are plenty of taxis waiting at the doorstep and Taipei Main Station is just a station away.

Location is yearn for. It definitely helps that the hotel is at the MRT doorstep after one day of self touring. Xi Men Ding crowd hustle and bustle is to be experienced.

Will definitely come back for more. The mugs are for sale at NTD300 each and i bought 2 for souvenirs. Loved them.

Stayed at a quad room for a couple of days, the room itself was clean, comfortable and its got all the necessary equipment that one would need (especially a strong wifi signal, always a plus). The location couldn't be better to be honest, literally in Xi Men Ding, lots of restaurants and local shops. Transportation wise - lots of taxis lined up outside the hotel & Ximen MRT within a 2 min walk

A big thanks to the staff at the reception desk, was always smiley and willing to help, recommended a few restaurants and attractions, incredibly helpful. Breakfast was amazing too - lots of choices!
