Awesome with only some minor buggings

Location, Room size, Staff
Travelled to Taipei from May 18 - 24. Took a convenient direct shuttle bus from Taoyuan Airport to the Ximending Area. You can tell the bus driver which hotel you're going to and they will call out along the way, which was really useful as my family were all knocked out from the early morning flight. The bus alights along the main road really near to the hotel as they can only enter the Ximending area during designated timings (applies to all vehicles). Upon reaching, the staff were friendly and told us that we could only get a room from 12pm onwards. We decided to eat their buffet breakfast as no other shops were open (around 8am). The breakfast is great...only if you're hungry :) Excellent staff service as the service counter personnel personally came up to the breakfast area at Lv3 to inform us that our room was ready. Overall, great location in the heart of Ximending (around 10-11pm the small illegal stores selling food and clothes come out). Step out of your hotel and all these will be right at your fingertips/footsteps. Hotel staff are really friendly and will mostly always greet you when you enter/leave. There is a guy manning the floor area who will help you with any luggage etc. if necessary. In addition, they have long umbrellas with their hotel logo readily available for use (you don't have to sign it out or anything). This was especially valuable as it rained every single day while we were there =l Buggings: 1. Some youngsters/teenagers like to hang out outside the hotel area to try and sell you stuff. Just ignore them and say "No, thanks". We got approached everyday...annoying. 2. Hotel looks a little run down but it's great inside. 3. Wi-fi was spotty at times, tends to sign you out at times. Will definitely be back here though :)

Awesome with a few complaints.

Location, Room comfort, Staff
Overall, great stay. Convenient airport shuttle bus, whereby the driver will call out your hotel name (useful if you're dead tired). Short walk to the hotel if it stops along the main road due to timing restrictions in the Ximending area for vehicles. Mediocre breakfast which is only good if you're hungry/no other shops open. Ah Zhong Mian Xian is just barely 5mins away, along with other cafes and stuff. Great location near to the Metro Ximending station. This is our 2nd time in Taipei and we had previously stayed in a backpacker's hostel nearby, which was seriously 1/3 the size of the hotel room and not that much more expensive. Rainbow Hotel is nearer to the Ximending area and much more convenient. After 10pm, the small stores come out and Ximending truly comes alive. Enjoy the small eats and shop the cheap goods (sometimes). During our stay, we saw the police come and chase the small vendors as it is illegal by law. It's quite a sight to see the people pushing their carts in a rush down the main street. However, they mostly make a loop somewhere and are back in business ~15mins after the police have gone. Friendly staff and they provide hotel umbrellas which are free for you to take at any time necessary. One complaint that I had that was even though our room was designated smoke-free, I believe other rooms are not. This led to a weird situation of stale cigarette smoke coming down through the aircon vent whenever someone in that particular room(s) smoked. It wasn't a big issue for us until the last 2 days. Who the hell smokes in the place you sleep -_- Other then that, great room cleaning service everyday as well. I'll def be back!
Hui L. Couples Singapore, May 23, 2014
Excellent location, very pleasant service

Location is in Xi Men Ding, diagonally opposite 24 hr Watsons and plenty of eatries & shops around.
Room is clean and pleasant. Very convenient and safe location right in the middle of the heart of Xi Men Ding. 5 mins walking distance to MRT Xi Men Ding Station and is very accessible to other shopping areas ard. Near to chengpin, uniqlo, watsons (24hrs) etc. For comic buyers, is super near to 2 comic stores with housing extensive collections - Man Hua Feng is the best! Is just along the street that houses Watson.

Convenient but Expensive & Unfriendly staff

Have Family Rooms, Near to Shopping Areas & Accessible to public transport
Good for convenience for shopping & food, but it is definitely too expensive as this is the most expensive hotels that we have stayed in Taiwan so far. The hotel did not have breakfast served, 1 small lift service & unfriendly staff which makes it even more unworthy to stay there for the money paid. My family & I will not stay there in our next trip to Taiwan anymore.
