Overall not-too-bad stay at Rainbow Hotel
Excellent location right in the heart of Ximending, 5-min walk from Ximen metro station
The hotel is rather old in terms of the facilities. One of the staff mentioned that the hotel has been in operation the last 10 plus years and it is hard for them to do renovation because Ximending is always bustling with people and activity. I felt that the Standard Double room was just nice for me and it would have been too crowded for 2 people. The supposedly whitewashed walls have turned grey, the bathroom shows signs of rust. The hotel still adopts the conventional method of using room keys instead of card keys, which I am fine with. The hotel is in an excellent location, surrounded by shops and food 24/7, a small thing to note is that if you check-in the hotel at night, cars are not allowed in the Ximending Pedestrian area so you have to arrive in the hotel by foot with all the luggage. The hairdryer in the room is super old, and not very efficient, also there is only one lift in the entire hotel. Overall, the hotel makes up for its old facilities by the excellent location which is really important.

Best location in ximending
Location, price, clean
The location of the hotel is right smack in the middle of ximending which makes shopping in ximending a breeze as you can buy as much as you want, walk back to the hotel, dump your bags, come out again and continue. Plus it is opposite watsons and right next to the famous hot star chicken. No lack of food when you stay here for sure. It only takes about 10 mins to walk to the train station too. The hotel room may be a little old but still clean nonetheless and given it's price and location, it is a great hotel to stay. Would definitely book it again.

Great for its location, meets basic needs
Location, location, location
Stay here if you want to stay right smack in the center of Ximending, and 5mins walk from the MRT. Very convenient. Otherwise, facilities/standard of the rooms are average, I suppose. (Vis-a-vis the price you pay for. But I guess you pay a slight premium, worth it in my opinion, for the location)
