They staff pay very good attention to service and the little things add up. You will find a drink station to fill up your water bottles, lemon tea and green tea dispenser, coffee maker and ever POPCORN !

Albeit the room is a little small for a twin bedded room and the fact that there are only clothes hanger to hang up our clothes. The beds are really comfy and the air conditioning is cool !

Would love to stay at PURI again any time !!! Keep up the good job guys !!!

The hotel was situated at Ximending shopping district so it was really convenient to get around; near the MRT station too. Staff there were very friendly and helpful in providing information and details on how to get around.

Wifi is free throughout stay and connection was excellent. The rooms were also very clean and cosy. Small though but good enough as we don't stay in the room much.

We got a room just behind the temple where we experienced early morning rituals (bells sounding off, drums, chantings)... it was really bad as it disrupted sleep and got me a little grouchy... it only happened on 1 early morning (Monday) throughout our stay there so I'm not sure if it will be like this every monday or a one-off thing. Otherwise, I slept like a baby on other nights.

There's no other facilities in the hotel - no gym, no pool, no breakfast. But

Room Tip: Get a room away from the temple.

Dear Guest

Thank you for choosing Hotel Puri as your stay in Taipei and also writing up a detailed comment about us on TripAdvisor. Just so you know that we are situated right behind the famous temple in Ximending area (been here for over 100 yrs), and they do rituals/ceremonies twice a month on the 1st and 15th day of the lunar month. Sorry about the waking up early in the morning thing and please inform us such incident on your next visit with us, we shall provide a room that is far away from the temple so that you could get a better sleep.

Once again, thank you , and we hope to see you back in the near future.

Regards
Supervisor

I had a good 4 nights stay with Puri. The admin process for booking, check in and out was a breeze and the location perfect with XMD exit 6 that has a lift! The room is relatively small and it takes a little to get used to the sliding door which is shared by the shower and toilet, which means the toilet is exposed when the shower room is in use (little privacy except for a curtain and when you do your toilet business). There is no warerobe but you can hang 1-3 hangers near the full length mirror. Shower gel and Shampoo are provided in the dispenser form and you get basic toiletries under the basin. Do expect some noise in the night as i find the aircons of the neighbouring hotels kinda loud. I stuffed some cotton wool in my ears and slept soundly through though! Their bed and sheets were very comfy and clean.
Their great service more than make up to it! I have to say they have the best trained service staff who are always so friendly and ready to help with my questions of where to eat, transportation and even weather! They will always stand and greet you upon walking into the hall and ask how your day went. There is a little pantry with water and beverages which you could help yourself with, one of the staff even walked over to show me how to unlock the hot water dispenser personally.
The location is very near to XMD exit 6 and a few streets away from one of the best eateries. Try out Cheng Kun Street, you won't be disappointed. Please note that hotel coaches no longer go straight to XMD, thus you'll need to transit at Taipei Main Train station, which is just a station away.

we stayed in the family room and the room is just as it is, showing on the website.... room is small but comfortable enough for 4.. Only disappointment is the wifi is hardly detectable and even if detected, it is usually down..

Other that that, the only down side its when we all open our luggage to unpack or pack which leaves no room to walk about... , pity there is no wardrobe or space to hang towels or clothes

Location wise, it is pretty awesome as it's only walking distance (prolly 2 mins) to the shopping district so late night shopping is really great.. Only issue is that cabs are unable to drop us at the hotel front as the hotel is located in the small alley where the cars cant drive it.. We have to drop off at the main road where the convenience store is and walk about 3 mins in.

Staff were nice and friendly to us, whenever we need help, they will always be able to help or direct us..

Stayed there just last weekend, there are a few hotels around that Ximen area but they looked a bit dodgy, so we were glad we stayed at Hotel Puri. Service was fine, english was good and with some staff, excellent. Free lemon tea and other drinks at the front desk and instant coffee/tea/kettle in the rooms. You have to leave your room door swipe pass with the front desk each time you leave the hotel, which was a little strange, but it was fine. Also the room safe does NOT fit an ipad (maybe it'll fit a mini) so if you want to keep it safe, maybe lock it in your luggage or something. Everything worked well, showers etc were great, free basic amenities but no conditioner or body location which is fine because lots of shops around.

The only downside is the thin walls. You can hear EVERYTHING of your neighbour including tv (even when at a low volume), talking, bodily movements and snoring. Obviously worse when you have screaming kids as neighbours. Suggest you buy some earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Definitely required if you have people in either side of the rooms next to you because youw ill get double the noise.

Room Tip: Get a superior room at a minimum because it has a window!

The room was very clean and comfortable. Separating the toilet and shower is a good idea as it allows for more than one user at a time. I wish there were windows though. Hotel Puri is located right in Ximen area. It may be hard to find, being inside an alley, but you just need to ask passers-by. Seems a bit pricey with no breakfast provided, but there's food everywhere in Ximen area. The condition of the room was worth the money.

Thank you for taking time leaving us comments on TripAdvisor and all of our staff are thrilled to have you here stay with us. As you might have noticed, we are situated in a small alley with no more rooms to have a dining lounge, but we are trying hard to find a nearby place to serve breakfast now. So do come back and visit us soon and see what other changes we may have done to improve~ ^^

Once again thank you for choosing Hotel Puri as your stay in Taipei and we hope to see you very soon in the nearest future.
