Cheap, comfortable and accessible”

Hotel Papa Whale was a highly affordable accommodation located in the heart of Taipei City (just a 10min walk from Ximen or Taipei Main Station). Decor is rustic and industrial, which is charming. Rooms are large and comfortable with free-flow buffet hot pot served as daily breakfast. Only gripe about the hotel was the lack of a proper ledge in the room for the placement and opening of luggages. The only ledge was that of the clothes rack which was too short in depth to comfortably support a 20" carry-on suitcase without tipping over. Had to lay the suitcase open on the ground which makes unpacking/packing tiring having to do it while squatting. Breakfast whilst yummy was serving the same stuff everyday, so after a couple of days, you'd be looking at eating out. Overall, the above are small gripes and I would still consider staying at this place again in a heartbeat.

Industrial Chic in Ximending”

Do you like hotels that are a bit out of the ordinary? Then consider Hotel PaPa Whale, when in Taipei. The site has an industrial feel: chrome, metal, metallic relics from years past. It looks like it might have been a factory, at one time. Or, at least made to look like it. The WiFi is strong, and the signal is strong. And the place is a mere three quick blocks from the pedestrian thoroughfare that brings one into the heart of the Ximending Shopping Area. Hip site. Superb location.

Hip Hotel in town”

Checked in to Hotel PaPa Whale on a last min booking and got a good deal on agoda. The hotel is very new and has cool interior design of warehouse style. There is also a nice whisky bar at the lobby that serves local beer and whisky. Good ambience and friendly staffs but can be a little noisy at night. I stayed on the 2nd level and I could hear the noise from the street and the the bars till late. Location is good for me, not exactly in the heart of Xi Men Ding, takes about 10 min to walk to metro and about 15min walk to Taipei main station. there is a park nearby where you can go for morning jogging.

Very very nice and good hotel”

PaPa Whale Hotel made our trip memorable. The location was so convenient (5-10mins walk through ximending) to reach mrt. Or take a cab can alight straight in front of the hotel along main road.. Brightly lit and safe esp for me with 3 kids. Staff was friendly, nearby a lot of attractions and 7-11 just across the road. Very good and recommended for family with kids. We booked the family room (2 queen size beds) was nice and cosy. Will definitely be my choice of stay when I go back to Taiwan again

Accessible hotel in Ximending”

The hotel price includes everyday breakfast and accommodation. Checking in was fast and staff were okay. The room looks and nice and clean, although the hallway signs were a bit confusing so we got lost a couple of times. The breakfast was also okay - hot pot and bread - they never changed their menu and the last few days more and more variety were not present anymore. The hotel has laundry and vendo machines which was a plus for us, very convenient to use. The location was farther from the Ximen Station than we expected, around 8-10 minutes. And you can also walk from the hotel to the Main Station for about 15-20 minutes. Overall, we recommend Hotel Papa Whale to other travelers.

Modern Beautiful Hotel”

We stayed at the Hotel Papa Whale for 4 days and 3 nights on the cool month of November. The hotel staff were very friendly. On the first night I requested for extra pillows and they immedietely sent 3 pillows to our room. The hotel looked very modern but you feel that you are brought to the past because of the antique decor. It's really a beautiful work of art. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. It has everything you need. Nice restaurants and shopping stores abound within the vicinity. There are also plenty of taxi's and the train station is near. I wish to come back to Taiwan and stay at the Hotel Pap Whale.

Exceptional”

My 4 nights stay at PaPa Whale was pleasant as the rooms looked modern, upscale and stylish. The bed were comfortable and the rooms are kept clean daily after housekeeping. However, it might not be suitable for superstitious Chinese as the ceiling of the room is made up of glass panels, where one would see the reflection of themselves upon waking up and there was a painting of the crow on the wall. The concept of having steamboat for breakfast is quite unique as normal hotel breakfasts are usually a buffet spread. However, the seating are catered more for groups of 3-4 and singles or couples may have to share the table with strangers, eating hotpot together, which may be awkward.

PAPA WHALE is a nice stylish hotel located near the famous shopping area, Ximending but quite far from MRT Exit, especially travellers with big luggage. You can enjoy everyday hot pot breakfast as a complimentary. The room is clean and comfy. Staff is also friendly but some of them could not use English well.

Papa Whale was amazing - it was so conveniently located, very central in Ximengding, close to nice restaurants and shopping, super easy to locate, and our room was very nice - we had a basement double room and found it to be spacious (especially for Taipei) and the shower was massive - would definitely stay here again!

everything you need your hotel room to have, my room had it. the room was a bit small but no complaints. multi universal plugs all over the room made it convenient for me to charge my various gadgets without worrying about having only 1 adapter. the only thing was that the walls were paper thin so i could hear everything the next room was watching on their tv or doing....literally every single thing. apart from that, everything was great. thank you Hotel Papa Whale!

Taiwan Family Adventure”

My family liked staying in Hotel Papa Whale. The place is very convenient. So close to most of the places we wanted to see. Even my kids were able to find their way back to the hotel. Cozy and clean rooms. However, the housekeeping could not take away the cigarette smoke smell most especially from our bathroom considering that the (3) rooms we got were family rooms. I will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and would definitely stay here again.

Good hotel, good location”

I spent 2 nights at Hotel Papa Whale, the decoration is nice. The room is very clean and tidy. Hotel location is at Ximending, convenient to go around Ximending and city center

Thank you Hotel Papa Whale!”

The hotel and the room itself was really nice! We like the interior and the front desk were nice and can converse well in english. The only thing we didn’t like in the hotel was all the room doesn’t have a window. It is hard to tell if it’s sunny / raining outside. It is also near ximending area about 5-10mins walk. It’s easy to go to the airport too since it’s also near the ximen station. Thank you Hotel Papa Whale!

Best Value for Money”

Hotel Papa Whale is a tourist spot on its own, you'll be amazed of how detailed and creative the interiors are. The location is near to Ximen station and the busy Ximending. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great Stay”

It's my second time staying at Papa Whale Hotel. And I love it! The only con is that the electricity power of Taiwan. I couldn't use my hairdryer there , the watts is too high for Taiwan. I suggest that Papa Whale should use a better hairdryer with a greater power.

Definitely staying again.”

There's absolutely nothing to complain about Papa Whale. I liked the interior, the service and the price! If I was forced to say what I didn't like was the dragging my suitcase part from the subway station because it's a busy street packed with a lot of people. However, everything else was so great that I'm definitely staying again in my next visit.

Cheap, great value for many”

Pros: located basically in ximending kind of the heart of taipei i think. (5 min walk from ximending) and close to taipei main station too , clean, has all you need as in comb, hair dryer, toothbrush, toothpaste, water, cups, soap, shampoo, body lotion nice selection of tv channels and good wifi. Beds are comfy. Cheap hotel. Can print at front desk for 10 NT. Front desk speaks english, many foreigners in the area. Close to Mrt. Good AC. Cons: small room, small bathroom and toilet. No windows in the room so not much sunlight in the room. There are windows in the bathroom and toilet that let sunlight in the room but the windows can't be opened and aren't transparent, you can only barely see outside. Maybe not claustrophobic friendly.
