Stayed a total of 5 nights at this hotel.
Location: just slightly over 7 min walk from Ximen station Exit 3. Excellent for shopping and going back for a bit of siesta before coming out for more shopping/eating.
Hotel amenities/service: Staff are extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast is provided and it is really awesome. First thing I think of upon waking up haha. It's a simple buffet style and largely unchanged over the 5 days we were there but still very excellent. Breakfast consisted of porridge/rice, with chinese dishes like omelette/scrambled eggs, ham and sausages, simple stirfried vegetables, salted peanuts, pork floss. Also has a simple variety of bread for toasting with butter/jam and cornflakes. Simple and delish, like home-cooked breakfast.
The hotel also has transport services to Taoyuan Airport - either NT200 each for a bus (which would take multiple stops) or NT1000 for a cab (can split amongst your travel group). We took the cab which came very punctually and the driver was very professional and careful.
Hotel room: quite a large room, large comfortable bed, good working TV and wifi in the room. Carpeted floor. Complimentary bottles of mineral water every day with tea/coffee bags and 2 packets of black sesame/lemon biscuits. The shower was very awesome with some high-tech new fangled kind of shower. Although the furnishings are the heavy old fashioned kind of chinese furnishings, it was all very comfortable. Lots of places to hang your washed delicates haha.
Amenities around hotel: This was not an issue at all since it is only 7 min walk away from Ximen where all the major shopping and eating stuff are. There is also a very old school shop selling very delicious pork/chive baos just 3 min to the right of the hotel (after coming out from the main entrance). One for NT 20 and so warm and oily and delicious.
- plus points are many. The only thing is that some may find 7 min walk a little far, but I would say, it is just right. And anyway in Taipei one would expect to done a lot of eating so what's a short 7 min walk to burn away the calories? Would stay here again definitely. Go try the chives bao too!
