“Friendly staff with good location”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I have stayed 2 different types of rooms during my visit to Taipei. The hotel is near the Ximen station (about 5 mins walk from Exit 6) and it has 2 floors inside a 11 floors (if I didn’t remember wrongly) building. The first two nights I stayed a superior room without window which is located at 6th floor, same floor with the reception. The room given is just beside the reception and therefore may hear some noises if people talking too loud outside.

The room is a bit small and may not be bright enough, but since the hotel was just for us to rest and shower, I think this is not an issue. The bed is comfortable, the room and bathroom are clean. There are also free drinks (2 mineral water, 2 cans of soft drinks, coffee and tea) and biscuit provided in this room.

There are 2 computers near the reception (which are actually outside our room), free for use and free Wifi in room. You will be given free gift (we received keychain) after you like their facebook page. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. But, on the night before we checked out, we requested a morning call because we need to catch the high speed rail in the morning. However, we did not receive the morning call. Luckily, we were able to wake up and they apologized after we informed the staff about this incident.

We left our luggage free of charge at the hotel and came back again after 3 days. The 2nd room we stayed was standard double room without window which is located at 8th floor. This room is smaller as it is cheaper but brighter than the superior room we stayed earlier. It does not have wardrobe but only hanger. If you have 2 big luggages, I think this room might not be suitable. Free drinks (mineral water, 2 cans of soft drinks, coffee and tea) and 2 packets of snacks are provided. The bathroom has small bathtub as compared to the superior room we stayed earlier.

I would give a 3.5 stars to this hotel due to the cleanliness, staff helpfulness and the good location. I would recommend the superior room which is preferably not near the reception area to avoid noise.

Gd: Gd location within walking distance to Ximen Station & lots of shops, food & amenities; Clean rooms with 5 star finishings, Friendly staff

Bad: Bathroom is a little small; lobby located on 6th floor & my room was on the 8th.. it's a common lift used by the public who have access all the way to the room door.. there are security cams along the corridor but it's something to note about..

From the pictures I've seen in Agoda, I expected more from this hotel. The room we were given does not resemble those shown in the website. It's not as spacious as we thought it should be.

The bathroom is spacious. However, there's a damp patch right outside our bathroom door which we suspect is caused by some leak from the bathroom. View from our room is bad, so might as well go for room without view.

The receptionist were very helpful. We extended our stay in the hotel by another 2hrs and had to top up TWD550. It's not bad if you're catching a flight at night and need to freshen up before you head to the airport.

Mini bar consumption is free. It's stocked up with some local snacks and a couple of carbonated drinks like coke.

If you plan to book the hotel with breakfast, don't! This hotel doesn't really have a restaurant. Thus for breakfast, they'll give you coupon for you to redeem your breakfast at a restaurant nearby. The breakfast offered by the restaurant right beneath the hotel is bad. Since we paid extra for the breakfast, I assume we'll be treated with the typical Taiwanese breakfast buffet. What we got is a choice of peanut butter toast with milk tea or cheese sandwich/burger (miserable looking). The other option for redeeming our breakfast voucher is at Mos Burger located a few door away. It's a much (X10) better compared to the restaurant below the hotel. If we've known about the breakfast quality, we would just have opted for room without breakfast as there are plenty of eateries around Ximending area (including the famous beef noodle!).

Location is good as it's a few min walk from the Ximending MRT station. Ximending station itself is few stops away from quite a few popular sites in Taipei.

Overall, would we stay here again? I'll probably scout around for other options. For the price paid, there are other hotels which can provide us with spacious room and decent breakfast. Location wise, they might not be as good, but with the convenience of Taipei's MRT service, getting around is not difficult.

As the hotel has a late check-in policy at 3pm, we were not affected by it as we arrived there at around 4.30pm and our rooms were allocated to us within 5mins! It is located 5 minutes away from the local 西门丁 (Xi Men Ding) and the location is really easy to find as it is opposite Just Sleep Hotel and near Xi Men station. Their staffs even helped us with 1 of our luggage and their bed is really huge and comfy! I like that their room is small yet cozy as stepping into the room makes us feel at home. Do note that for our room there are no windows, no cupboards though only 4 hangers provided but our toilet did have a bathtub. Housekeeping was done well too and they also provided complimentary snacks, coke, sprite and mineral water for us everyday. Free wifi is provided too but we didn't use it as we had unlimited 3G data! Their air-con however is hard to be adjusted into your required temperature as it will automatically change by itself (we woke up 1 morning to find that it was 16deg!)

After arriving at 4:00AM, I had to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel as it was the only mode of transportation at that hour. I emailed the hotel in advance and requested their address in Chinese which became very helpful because the taxi driver didn't speak English (see below).

The hotel is conveniently located in Ximending, not far from Ximen MRT (subway) and the Red House which is the city's gay district. There are lots of shops, restaurants, and pedestrian only streets. Don't expect a fancy lobby when you arrive, the hotel is in a commercial building. The front desk is on the 6th floor. I had a triple room which was on the 8th floor and had windows. I noticed that some rooms didn't have windows. Our beds were comfortable. The hotel offers free Wifi Internet, complimentary drinks in a small fridge, and basic breakfast. If I book again, I wouldn't pay extra for breakfast.

I recommend buying an MRT pass which allows you take subway, train, and bus. It costs TWD100 deposit + whatever amount you want to load on it. I loaded TWD500 and it lasted me the whole week. The subway system is very efficient.

I would also recommend getting a data-only SIM card for your phone. It costs TWD300 for unlimited internet for 5 days. Unless you speak Chinese, you will definitely need Google Map and Google Translate to get around. It was especially handy when I ordered food.

Hi, Just return from Taipei on 9 Jul 13.

We have stayed in Muzik Hotel from 4 to 9 Jul 13. It is located in a excellent location at Ximending. It was completed and open recently (Dec 2012). The hotel is clean and professionally manage by excellent CS front desk staff.

Although it is in a commercial building and Lobby is located at level 6 the security is safe enough as their is always someone at the reception. There is also a security guard at the lift lobby of the building.

I am more then happy with the Hotel.

Nice hotel - overall good impression, the staff is nice and friendly, despite imited English skills. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and not that small for Taipei. The rooms overlooking the main street are a bit noisy if you're a light sleeper. The locaton is excellent, right between Ximen MRT station (5 mn walk) and the main train station (10 mn walk), which is very convenient to travel around or outside of the city. Many shops, cinemas and restaurants around the hotel. One negative point: breakfast was included when I booked the room, and I indeed got vouchers to go to 'Mos Burger' (local fast food joint, 2 mn walk) allowing me to get a burger and a coffee, not exatly what I would have expected for breakfast.
