    1st time visit here, overall is good. ”
    The only thing is their double bed size a bit small, have to take noted when you make a booking, if you expect 2 adult with small kids sleep in one double bed, that will be not enough space to sleep, but overall is very good to stay in this hotel. Very clean and nice in the room.

    Basement room smelled bad”
    Overall the room was nice and staff was helpful. Except one night I came back to the hotel room and it smelled like clogged drainage / sewage or possibly the ventilation/exhaust fan backflow. Although the staff immediately send someone to spray some air freshener, I felt it wasn’t healthy to breathe in such air.

    It's like a maze”
    The hotel is clean and beautiful. It's great value to stay there. However it's not easy to find our room number in each floor, it's like a maze. We met other travelers who couldn't easily find their room as well. I think there should have a better guide direction in the hotel. It takes 10-15mins walk from Ximen Station which is acceptable. I still recommend it to anyone who likes clean and stylish place to stay.

    Just a breeze 8min walk from Ximen exit 6, walking through Ximen Walker. you could see, eat and buy many things on the way, not a burden at all. I have never use Beimen station during my stay. Room is cosy and comfy. The down side is, sound proofing is bad. I could hear next door's tv program and hair dryer sounds =) Still, i like my stay and will come back in future.

    Great hotel with great service”
    All is good. If in Ximending, I would strongly recommend this hotel. It's not in the middle of busy shopping area but just at the fringe. Walking to Taoyuan airport MRT station is also very easy and reasonably near. Lotsa of eateries around too. Hotel is clean, modern, hips, spacious. Nothing to complain except it may take a lot to locate your room in a maze like layout which we find it pretty fun, though.

    A hipster theme hotel”
    The experience from check-in to check-out was exceptional. We loved the deco inside and outside of our hotel room. The bundled complimentary breakfast is served at restaurant just next to hotel called, Takao. Buffet steamboat breakfast with regular rice, porridge and toast. I especially like the seriousness this hotel is against smoking inside room which, culprit will be slapped with a heavy fine of NTD10,000. One feedback for hotel management ... i booked 2 rooms. I with a curtain across the toilet/bathroom and one without. As the glass doors are a little translucent, a curtain would provide better privacy. Overall ... GREAT HOTEL !!! Will come back if we are back at Taipei.

    Hotel had a great location - close to great evening shopping, cinema, food and subway. The room was budget basic with two big bunks but the shower was great with lots of bathroom supplies.

    In terms of facilities, it is nice. It gives you a very comfortable feeling, the hallways are well-lit. But since there are a lot of turns in the floor, I got lost once but I found my way easily. Location is also good since it is only few minutes from Ximending Night Market and Ximen Train Station.
