      They brought us to a new backpacker style hotel to stay.

      They told us the whole 5th floor level toilet is broken and are unable to check us into the hotel. They made us pay the same amount to stay in their neighbour backpacker hotel.

      The hotel's location was excellent. Located outside Exit 6 of Ximending mrt, it offers quick access to the mrt and to the numerous shops in the area. It helps that Ay-Chung Flour-Rice Noodle was just around the corner. Macs breakfast was served at 8am every morning and they have a micro-wave at the reception level (5) to heat it up. While my wife wasn't too pleased with the size of the room and how it differed from the photos, I was quite happy to find a very new and clean bathroom and a queen bed with clean sheets. All that we need to rest our heads. A lcd tv is provided with access to many channels if you can't sleep at night.

      The room's small size and the absence of windows can ignite one's claustrophobia. Repeated requests to fix a spoilt lamp in the room and a complain about the aircon's noise was met flatly with a "we've looked at it and we can't change these things" nonchalant reply. A request to extend the room beyond the standard noon checkout was denied and they do charge NT$200/hr if you need the room. In short, you get a great location, clean room and even breakfast but don't expect anything beyond what you have paid for, which is exceptionally great value.

      Room was rather spacious

      No huge signboard to show where the hotel is indicated. Instead it was a banner and the banner was in a collapsing manner that we did not realise it. The life was very filthy as it was shared by other tenants of the building.

      Love the location. Easily accessible by MRT. Lots of shops and eatery around. great. Hotel housekeeping did a good job.

      Room size is reasonable but would be better if it is bigger. Mattress is too soft.

    • Family with children

      The location is just fantastic. Exiting from the Ximen MRT station, it is just a stone's throw away. The room is clean and the staff is polite and helpful.

      The elevator to the 5th floor looks run-down. A bigger signboard would help guests looking for the hotel.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Location is fantastic. Just 1 min walk from Ximen mrt. The hotel room is fairly decent, clean and rather spacious. It comes with a small safe which is convenient.

      Very noisy if you stay on 5th floor till about 11 pm. There are people practicing/playing muscial instrument including drums on 6th floor till 11 pm on weekend and 10 pm on weekdays. Difficult to find the hotel is located on 5th floor and there is no sign board outside the building. The lift and the lobby is very run down and old. The room does not come with wardrobe.

    • Family with children
      6.2

      The fact that it is right smack in Ximending, and right next to the MRT station.

      No windows in room. In years to come, the room is gonna smell if not well maintained.

    • Family with children

      Location was great

      the loud music throughout the day and late into the night, even heard in the corridors and rooms.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      The bathroom is clean and big enough for the use of family with young children.

      Carpet is dirty and dusty.

      The location of the hotel. 3Mins from XiMenDing mrt Exit 6 and really the heart of XinMenDing which both my nieces and my 63 year old mother love it. They can move around themselves and very convenient for elderly. The price for the hotel was really reasonable and rooms are new. I have made reservation for two family rooms for 7 of us. We stayed there from Nov 29 to Dec 2 in Room 1007 and 1001. Both rooms have windows but different layout and rooms were pretty new since it was only opened 3months back. Also, the rooms all came with free Mcdonald breakfast ie a burger and packet of fruit juice.I Was surprised cos I remebered the booking did not state free breakfast. Anyway the daily Mcdonald breakfast are different. I like the personal delivery by the hotel staff... Excellent.

      The hotel banner should be more visible. I actually have to look out for the small banner in our airport pickup car. Thanks to a traveller who contributed in the trip advisory site in October. For Room 1001 and 1007, everything was prefect except during night we can hear some dripping and knocking sound. After our investigation we realised that the drainage system. We did make a complaint and that night was slightly better. However, if booking for tripple sharing room then be prepared that there are no windows in these rooms. I have checked and asked the hotel staff that all tripple rooms have no WINDOWs and if you have Claustrophobia like me and my cousin we basically cant sleep during first night and stayed awake. For those twin sharing, there are rooms without windows too. So do make sure you insist of windows if you have Claustrophobia sympton like me. For those rooms no windows, the hotel staff really need to know how to ensure the room are proper ventilated cos one of the initial tripple room that my cousin was booked in have a very strong odour smell. Not sure it was due to dampness of clothes or previous guest body odour.

      Conveniently located beside an mrt station and shopping area. Free brewed coffee at the reception desk anytime.

      The quadruple room was very small with too little space to hang items for four people. The wifi connection was very poor.

      Toplocation, just at the entrance of Ximending district. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

      However the hotel is difficult to find, there is just a small sign outside, You enter a hall where you have tot take the elevator, the reception is at the 5th floor but there are no signs.
