Overall the room is great. Cleanliness and comfort bring out the coziness of the room. It’s recommended to those travelling alone and do not need a big space.

Very good”
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. Rooms were made up everyday and staff at the front was accommodating and spoke great English. Comfortable and great for the price.

I stayed 4 days and 3 nights with my mom and auntie. the place is cool esp the lobby. very unique design and very instagram friendly. Harvey, Wade and Brian has been so helpful and polite. I also commend Kenji for being very accomodating and helpful during our check out. He ensure that our bags are properly and safely kept while waiting for our service to the airport. The place is very near to the shopping area. I will definitely comeback. My mother and 2 aunts love their breakfast and service. Thank you for your great service.

Clean, accessible and nice staff”
The hotel is indeed clean kudos to the housekeeping and the concierge is kind enough to allow us to left our luggage without extra cost. One f.o staff was helpful enough to write down in chinese character on our way back to the airport. The interior of the hotel is beautiful. Check on instagram. Location wise; it is located near ximending so you will never get bored and will never ever be hungry. Mc.donalds, 7eleven, family mart, mala hot pot other restaurants and of course milk boba/milk tea’s are everywhere. From the hotel going going towards ximen station is just a few minutes walk. I just have a few cons: for the room, the cr smelled like there was somebody smoking behind the walls. I can really smell it everytime i use the cr. And you can hear sounds outside the room. We stayed on the 2nd floor. Overall hotel is highly recommended!😉

Above average”
We booked a Triple Elegant Room (good for 3 adults) at Hotel Papa Whale for our overnight layover. The next day when we're preparing, we realized that they only have us two sets of toiletries - shampoo, conditioner and body wash in small bottles. I asked for an additional conditioner and shampoo (not a set just these two) because the two bottles they provided were not enough for 3 adults. I called the front desk, they informed me that they cannot refill the shampoo and conditioner because we're about to check out that day. Again, I explained that only 2 sets of very small bottles of toiletries given in our room and that it won't be enough since there's 3 of us. I also explained that I booked for a Triple Room and paid 3 adults. He said that he's going to check, I was to say something but he HUNG UP on me. I was very disappointed by the way he handled my request. I've stayed with several hotels of different star ratings and I was never treated like this even three starred/budget hotels.

quite a comfortable place to stay in design is nice and good, mixture of modern and industrial design staff is good and efficient. would be better if they focus on the room more than the exterior. could have given more space for the room than the under utilized outdoor space.

We didn't have an enjoyable stay”
Stayed for 4 nights. Had problems as soon as we checked in. 1st night, light above the bathroom sink was not working. Note: shower area, toilet & sink are divided. So we brushed our teeth & I had to removed my makeup in the dark. We told them to fix it the next morning. Next night lights were working fine for 10 mins before ALL the lights in the bathroom area (shower, sink & toilet) went off & not working! We called them, a guy came to try fix it but was taking long time. So we told him to come back next day because it was late & my kids were tired. So we showered in the dark with the flash light on our mobile phones!!! Next night, bathroom lights was fixed but the lamp at the desk was not working! The room lights were not very bright to begin with. That night my husband had some work to do, he had to do it with so little light. We had to off the main light as kids were sleeping. We complained but they told us they couldn't fix the lamp! Location is the only good thing. Nothing else.
