“Comfy and nicely decorated rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

As per the directions given on the hotel website, I took an airport shuttle bus (TWD125) from Taoyuan Airport to the Taipei Station where I took the MRT (blue line - 板南 Ban Nan) to get to the Ximen Station (just one stop from Taipei Station).

For those who are travelling with heavy suitcase, please locate exit 6 instead of 1. This is because exit 1 has a few flight of steps to take before reaching the escalator to get to the ground floor. Exit 6 has 2 lifts that will get you to the ground floor. Cross the road (Chengdu Road) to get to the side of Exit 1 and walk along Zhonghua Road where the hotel is located on.

When I arrived at the hotel, there were two hotel staff manning the reception desk. The hotel staff were very courteous and friendly. One helped to process my check-in matters, while the other gave me information on where the breakfast area was (basement of the hotel and is open 24/7 beyond the breakfast hours for free beverages and yogurt) and asked what toiletries I required (which were then handed over to me along with the keys).

I was very impressed with the room design and felt they were as per the photos posted on the website. The bed was very comfortable and I felt very at ease in the room.

The only issue that I had was that I could hear the sound of people using the shower in the room above mine (typically late at night which is why I have a low rating for sleep quality) and voices from my neighboring rooms.

The room was also a little cold despite my attempts to adjust the room thermostat / AC panel... Guess I should have just called the hotel staff up for help but I got lazy... and plus the bed comforter helped keep me warm at night... the cold didn't bother me too much.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay a lot and I would definitely recommend people to stay at this hotel for it location, cleanliness and comfy room.

p/s: I have no comments on the breakfast as I didn't go down for breakfast at all. However I did get the yogurt on my 1st night of stay and I liked it a lot. :)

交通非常方便,距離捷運只要一兩分鐘;飯店新開張,設計時尚,既漂亮又舒服;服務人員友善,為住客提供貼心的服務。最令我欣賞的是那24小時自助咖啡、鮮奶、乳酪及生果提供,很窩心呢!我住了五天四夜,真的感覺舒適方便,下次到台北希望也可入住這間旅店。^^
It's easy to access, just 1 minute to the Mass Rapid Transit. The newly opened Forte Orange Ximen is so great with good design and well equipped. The staff are nice and helpful to customer. I like the 24-hours self-served coffee corner so much which provide coffee, fresh milk, yogurt and fruits. It's so great. I resided for 5 days 4 nights in December 2013. It's really comfortable and convenient to other places. I hope I can book and live in Forte Orange Ximen again next time!

First impression of the room... WOW!

It is decorated with many details that aim to inspire.

The bed is elevated right next to the window, and it tucks nicely between the two walls. Beautiful decorations line up the wall feature that inspires creativity.

Everything that you ever need is found within the room... surprisingly! And once you step out of the hotel, you are within reach to one of the most exciting night markets in Taipei.

Thank you for the inspiration.

The hotel is located barely a minute away from Ximen subway station, which is the best part about this hotel, the other being close to the Ximending eating and shopping area. The lobby is small, and they have breakfast area in the basement, where they serve basic, milk, tea, coffee, yoghurt, fruits, bread, etc. This is included in your rate. The rooms are small, but acceptable size for a budget hotel, but not exactly acceptable for the price you pay. If you want to stay in Ximen and be close to the MRT, this is your hotel.

Walk to mrt take less than 5mins
breakfast provided (bread, egg, Ham, cereal, milk, coffee/tea, fruits, yogurt and cake)
Room is clean and brightly lit
Staff is friendly and helpful
But not worth the money as the room is very small.

Staffs were very polite and helpful. We checked into a clean room but with cigarette smell. Complained to the front desk and they were very prompt in helping to clear the smell. Thumbs up to the staffs.

We arrived in Taipei late on Saturday night at about 3am without a booking. We looked at a couple hotels, but they were full. We finally tried the Forte Orange, and they had one room left, and it had bunk beds. It was actually really good for us since we were 2 adults & 2 small kids, and the sleeping arrangements worked out quite well. The lady that checked us in, Rita, was very nice & helpful; she brought us extra pillows and towels even though it was so late. She spoke great English, too.

The room was a little small for four people, but it was big enough. It was very clean and comfortable. Very clean! The design is modern and tasteful, and totally quiet. The beds were comfortable.

The location is great, being only a 2 minute walk from Ximen MRT station and the Ximending walking area. There are a couple of cool outdoor bars behind the Ximending Red House that were good for a beer and people watching. They're supposedly popular with the young and LGBT crowd, but It was not apparent when I was there; the crowd had a good mix of people. I enjoyed walking around and looking at the shops with my wife & kids.

I would stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back don't have any traffic noise.
