      Excellent location, comfy room and awesome staffs”

      The hotel staffs, the comfortable bed and clean bathroom.

      I had an awesome experience in SWIIO Hotel. As this is my 1st trip to Taiwan. I practical know nothing about Taipei and ximending. The staffs DINO, JERRY, MINA,WINNIE and RICK where kind enough to plan a list of itinerary for us. stating exactly where the location of all the authentic local must eats and places to visit. When we are about to check out from the hotel SHINAH, GINA and Joanne were so nice to us, they help us keep our big luggages so that we can travel around ximending before we move to Taipei city to celebrate our new years. Overall, I have a very pleasant 3D2N stay at SWIIO hotel and will definitely came back and stay here to meet up with all the fellow staffs. I highly recommend this hotel to any of you who is planning their trip to Taipei ximending.

      high quality and modern room, good location, great”

      location, value, room

      stayed at swiio for two nights. the hotel is located on the entire floor of a relatively old building. finding it could be an issue as the sign is tiny. it is in fact at the same building of the tgi friday restaurant. despite the building is relatively old, the interior of the hotel is very modern. upon my arrival, the front desk greeted me nicely. i had a room with windows which has a good view over the ximending area. the district is one of the most popular district for travellers. the room is actually pretty good. it's much better than the one i had in taiwan many years ago. it's big for the price i paid. again, interior is modernly furnished. i just had a stay at w hong kong and i have to say the room interior swiio is excellent given that the rate is maybe 1/6 of the w in hong kong. and the location for swiio is right at the heart of taipei. also, free wifi and a computer available. and more importantly, i enjoy the superb location as well as the modern room interior.

      Modern hotel, modern service.”

      Everything!

      i am so glad i chose to stay at swiio hotel. a bit difficult to find at first (as many have said, look for tgifs and just enter the alleyway immediately after it) but once you figure it out, it really is the most convenient location. around a 5 minute walk to ximen mrt station and situated right in the heart of the hip & trendy ximending district— you will not have a shortage of things to do at night (think food, entertainment & shopping!) one small thing— the area is packed with hip & trendy youngsters, so if this isn't your cuppa tea then best avoid. otherwise, it will be a ball of fun^^) swiio hotel itself is furnished with all the amenities you will need for a stylish, comfortable stay. my favourite feature would have to be the inbuilt universal adaptors/power sockets— no need to bring your own! plus, there are enough sockets in the wall to charge every product that apple ever invented... & there is even an ipod dock in the room! otherwise, the service was extremely genuine & friendly, the staff greeted you everytime you left and returned to the building, which was lovely. the decor was modern and most importantly, the bathroom was clean. there were also three different wifi channels to connect to, plus a public computer so internet access was never a problem. definitely exceeds value for money. would be more than happy to stay there again.

      Young and chic hotel with good location”

      Close to MRT; Stylist and clean room; Comfortable bed; Equipped with essential items

      Spend 2 nights with SWIIO, it has far exceeded my expectation. Great location for party animals - My itinerary is filled with late-night activities (leaving hotel at midnight, back at 4am). You can easily catch a cab at level 1 at 12am, and you feel safe when getting home at 4am as the area is brightly lit and nearby shops like 7-11 and Watson are opened 24 hrs. I am sure many would have mentioned about the close proximity from Xi Men Station Exit 6. Tips: tell taxi driver to stop at the intersection of Wuchang St Section 2 and Xi Ning Nan Rd. It will stopped right at SWIIO hotel. Stylist and clean room - The room which I stayed in SWIIO doesn't have cigarette smoke smell, the room has really clean carpet which you can walk bare-footed, a white fluffy bed and blacket which give me quality sleep and feel awake the next day (4hours of sleep). Shower area is new and clean. The stylist part kicks in with a ipod player (you don't even need to bring your own iphone charger), flat screen TV with a variety of channels to keep you entertained, modern and big showerhead for a good bath, neat and interesting arrangement of toiletries. Just don't be fooled by what you see at Level 1 where there're lifts taking you to the hotel floor on level 10. Compact room with all the essentials - The room is very small, luckily for us as we brought only hand-carried travel bags, no suitcase, so this isn't a problem for us. The room has toiletries, shampoo, shower gel and conditioners (not too bad quality!) and hair dryer for us. Enough hangers for our clothes, alarm clock, complimentary water bottles, safe, slippers, hand towels and bathing towels are available too. At a price(queen bed with window room), though it's towards the expensive end, it's still worth it if you know that other travellers have actually enjoyed the room this much.

      Best hotel ive stayed in so far!”

      I like everything about this hotel, except maybe the bathroom door cant be locked and is translucent, but it's a small problem really.

      Went on a 7 days trip to taipei, and intended to stay at SWIIO for the first 3 days and move to another hotel. Took quite awhile to find the place because it's hidden somewhere in the middle of ximending (it's the same building as T.G.I.Friday), and when we checked in, gosh, me and my buddy immediately went down to extend our stay for the full 7 days. The hotel seems newly renovated, and nicely decorated, and though small, the room is very cosy and the only downside I can find is that there's no smoking in the room, but ohh wth, you can always go to the first floor, or to the lobby (6th floor) and there's a smoking room there. The receptionists were extremely friendly (and not to mention pretty!), and they tried their best to squeeze us in for the next 4 days as their hotel is very full, so in the end we had to shift room on the last day, but that's fine with us. All the staffs were also very helpful and professional, as when i asked for a map of the area, they helped me print it out, as well as a map of the metro. You can also deposit your bags before you check in or after you check out at the lobby, and they'll take good care of them. The housekeepers were really good too - on the first (or second) day, we unpacked and threw our shirts and stuffs all over the room and went out without putting the "please clean my room" sign, and when we get back, all our clothes and stuffs were neatly arranged. Wow. Ohh you also get 2 bottle of mineral water everyday, and also they refill whatever tea/coffee you've used. So, yeap. Would definitely be back to this place. Easily accessible, yummy food right next door, awesome bunch of staffs, great room at a great price, what more can you ask for?! Oh not to forget, the hotel also provides other services, such as shuttle service to and from airport, and also currency exchange. :D

      good design hotel and room, value for money”

      central, close to shopping area, nice design

      The hotel is located at the heart of Ximending which is the biggest local shopping area in Taipei. Though the hotel is not a block which is located at the floors of a commercial building making it a bit difficult to find, the design of the hotel and the room can compensate. I had a very early flight at 8:15am to Okinawa from Taipei so I had to get to the airport at around 6am sth, the hotel provides an airport ride charging TWD1000 (TWD100 additional charge for such early service inclusive) which is the same price with the taxi. It was nice and price is reasonable. I will surely stay at SWIIO next time I go to Taipei.

      Great location with lovely service but small rooms”

      location, service of the reception

      I spent 4 nights at SWIIO hotel, the location of the hotel was great as it is in Ximending. The metro station is a 10 mins walk away from the hotel. However, the lift to the hotel, which is at level 10 of the building, was rather dirty as it is covered in wood, like those for renovation. Nonetheless, the hotel looks crisp and clean though the room is small. There is barely enough space to spread out two small size luggage for packing. However, the hotel service was great. Upon requested, the hotel reception helped us find out the weather forecast and recommended that we should go to jiufen a day earlier as according to our original plan, there was a 60 percent chance of rain and it have a higher possibility to rain in the mountain areas. Finally, on our last day, the hotel staff kindly help us to carry our luggage down to the taxi as we have too many baggage.

      Convenient and artsy!”

      very good location, centrally located in ximending, 5 mins to XIMENDING MRT, friendly and helpful hotel staff, free wifi!!

      Stay was superb in SWIIO hotel, great for couples travelling to Taipei. Being centrally located in ximending, it is a one stop access to all shopping areas, and food can be found at every corner around the hotel. Although its a small hotel,(lobby being at level 6) it was relatively easy to find! you just have to locate TGIF restaurant and the entrance to the lift lobby is just next to it. Takes abt a 7 min walk to ximending mrt. The hotel concept was very boutiquey kinda hotel, well designed and comfortable. We reached there abt 12pm but the check in time was 2pm, the hotel staff offered to deposit our luggage while we went to walk arnd. both check in and check out were a breeze! Room is a lil small but cozy but being in Taipei, You just need a comfortable place to slp before heading out the nxt day again. Highly recommended! A+ hotel if you don't wanna spend a bomb.

      location, service, interior

      swiio hotel is located at the main shopping area at ximending, and its only a 5 min walk from ximen station (exit6) very convenient and easy to locate as the lift to go up to the hotel recept is right beside tgif. service was good, hotel is newly decorated and very clean. i tried asking for a room with a window after reading previous comments but this is the peak period for travelling so it was pretty hard. however, staff were nice and at least arranged a room with a window in the toilet (really tiny window but at least i could see outside) one thing the room lacked was a bigger mirror. we stayed in the superior double room and the only mirror was the one in the toilet above the sink. other than that everything was nice

      I stayed in SWIIO hotel, Ximen for 4 nights. Had a wonderful time staying and quite accommodating.”

      Prior to check in, staffs from SWIIO responded to my queries efficiently from taking down my request for late check in to arranging a private taxi for me to travel outside Taipei like Juifen, Shifen, Shimen and Yehliu. during my stay, staffs assisted me on where i should visit during my stay in Taipei. Moreover, they also assisted me in a getting a cab to places where i wanna go like Da'an, XInyi etc. They do help in arranging airport transfer as well which made life easier for me since i had a huge luggage wit me. Thanks to Eileen as well for offering me a gift coz my birthday falls on 1 of the day during the stay. Not forgetting Edison and another male staff for making my stay a wonderful experience. Would definitely consider SWIIo hotel again for my next trip to Taipei. :-)

      Stylish, great location

      it was our 2nd trip to tw and we chose to stay at ximending area again because we loved how convenience. there were quite a few hotels around the area, and i must say that we are really glad to have stayed at swiio - it's stylish, convenient and reasonably priced. the room was a little small but we've had even smaller room in tokyo and so that was quite fine. only thing is that there was no window in the room but i guess that's quite normal too. staff at the reception were very helpful as well. overall we love the hotel and will definitely return again :)

      A very good and new hotel ”

      Convenient location. All the room facilities are new and clean. All the staff are kind and helpful.

      the location is very convenient. it only took few mins from mrt station to the hotel. also, we only have to go downstairs for shopping, watching movie or having meal etc. besides, the environment of the hotel is good. not only the room facilities are new and clean, there are free wifi and travel books provided in the hotel. further, the staff were so helpful on helping us to check for the travel information. from my point of view, there is only one drawback of this hotel. it is a bit difficult to locate the hotel if u have not visited ximending previously. swiio is located in a commercial building. also, the appearance of the building is a bit old. you will easily missed it if u could not see its signage.

      Cosy hotel, with great and a great location”

      cosy setting, comfortable bed, clean, modern design, great location

      swiio is a new hotel in ximending, one of the key shopping districts in taiwan - the exact building that the hotel is situated in is not exactly the cleanest and the easiest to find, but the hotel itself makes up for that. the rooms are rather small, with relatively little space for moving around, but personally, i liked the room a lot as it was cosy, clean and had a very modern design. howevet, there were some facilities that i felt were really quite small, such as the shower cubicle and the sink. the size of the sink was probably one-third of what we are all used to, and it was really frustrating as the water kept splashing out of the sink. i have never seen such a small sink before. the staff were really helpful as well, providing directions and recommendations for our travels (but then again, this is a given for most hotels). i think one of the best part about staying at swiio is the location - we could walk around every single night, shopping till late at ximending, and immediately go back to the hotel and crash without having to spend more time travelling back to the hotel. situated about a 3-5 min walk from the ximen station also made travelling to and fro relatively painless! for food, the hotel also does not provide meals, but that was fine for us as ximending had a lot of awesome food options in the vicinity. all in all, it was a good hotel stay, and one that i would certainly recommend for couples.

      Location,price and service!

      swiio was located in the middle of ximending, near to all the famous spots in ximending, such as ah zong mian xian, ya rou bian, red house and the movie street... etc. but as taxis couldnt come in at certain timings, usually after 4pm, you will have to walk out with your luggage and things to the main street to take another cab. service was great too, we made 4 calls in the hotel to our taxi driver, and the total phone bill came up to be nt15 only! they provide laundry service too! and if u need it urgently, you can do it yourself at the self service laundry room! everything was great, rooms were small but enough for 2~!

The staffs are friendly and the rooms are really comfy not to say they're in a best location too! Walking distance to met station. And surrounded by all the best local foods!!!! They deserve better than their 3-star rating

      Location, decor

      Swiio hotel is a gorgeous, affordable hotel located within Ximending and is great for young travelers who love to shop as it's located conveniently within Ximending. We were fortunate to get a room that had a small window as from what we read, most rooms do not have windows. For the price we paid, the room was comfortable, clean and very spacious. Love the decor of the lobby, hallways and room as well. The only things we didn't like was the musty smell in the cupboard that did not go away even after airing it overnight. The towels provided also had a strange smell to them. Other than that, will definitely consider staying here again next time I'm in Taipei!

      Modern rooms w great location”

      Very good location!

      At the intersection of Wuchang St Sec 2 n Xining South Rd. (2mins walk from Rainbow Hotel) Stand at the cross junction n look up, you'll see TGIF's signboard n above that is Swiio Hotel's. Walk into the building to find 3 lifts. The left most lift doesn't have access to the hotel, brings you to other commercial shops instead. The middle n right most lift belongs to the hotel and you'll need your room key card to access (other than lobby @ lvl 6). Once the lift door opens at lvl 6, its a total different feel. 2 young and pretty receptionist sits at the counter. There a VERY friendly and helpful manager too that remembers your room no! There's a water dispenser, coffee maker and restrooms at the lobby with a comfortable sofa area. The design of the hotel is very young and chic. I booked the Superior Double Room and was given a room on lvl 5. Room was a nice cozy size with enough space to open up all your luggages and can still walk around. There's a small sofa n table beside my bed. My room has a small window too which i find kinda unnecessary as the curtain isn't that good and the morning glare is kinda annoying. 2 pillows are provided and you can call the recep to ask for extras. Big LCD tv with over 70 channels and there's a iphone/ipod dock by the bedside. There's 4 universal power socket in the room and 2 more in the bathroom. Room comes with a mini fridge with a coolest temperature of 19degreesC. Above that is kettle and above that is a metal bar for you to hand clothes. The only thing i find abit disappointing is that there's no mirror in the room other than the one in the bathroom. Small hiccups that happened: - Toilet bowl unable to flush/very slow water flow on 2nd day of stay thus i needa use the toilet in the lobby before it was fixed. - TV stopped working on 2nd nite. The hotel staff can't fix it but after he left, it miraculously worked after we keep power on n off it - ipod dock stand stopped charging n playing music suddenly

      swiio is located at an awesome location. it is approx 3 mins away from ximending, therefore it is really convenient yet it is not within ximending as it tends to be noisy. the staff there was very friendly and the room service was great. however, note to not book the rooms without window as they are really really small. the rooms with window were great. the room was clean and the design was great. one setback would be the tiny sink. the whole toilet tends to get wet after washing face.
