Great base to explore Taipei”

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2023. A really great hotel for it's price point! Friendly and attentive English-speaking staff, aesthetic nautical themed lobby with multiple cafes/restaurants in the complex and comfortable, clean rooms. None of the rooms have windows but were still well lit. Great location in Ximending close to food, metro stations and major attractions. We didn't experience any street noise but could clearly hear the television from the guest in the next room - would suggest earplugs for light sleepers. That said, we would happily stay here again!

Probably the best choice in the district. ”

I rarely leave such high rating but this gotel worths a legit 5 stars. (I don't need fansy breakfasts in the hotel - if you are looking for that, maybe 4 stars then). This hotel got its style, from the entrance to the bathroom. If you like it, you will enjoy a very cozy loft feeling (which I do enjoyed it.) One more thing to mention is that the staffs at counter are very friendly and helpful. Their is also a bar called - Last Order, right at the corner of the hotel. Their drinks are on-point.

A great hotel. Love the vibes and the cleanliness. The facilities is sufficient. Will be great if the location is better like beside the metro. But nevertheless it’s a 5-6 mins walk.

Comfortable and modern”

Booked the basement rooms as I was traveling solo. The rooms are reasonable sized and comfortable. The lobby was beautiful and modern. Location was convenient behind Ximending area and was approx 5-10 min walk to the MRT station which is fine as you have plenty of things to look at along the way. Would definitely come back to this hotel

Great value for money!”

It is a wonderful stay over if you are planning to have a solo trip to Taiwan, as it is very well centralised location in Taipei, Ximending, which you are able to travel very conveniently, even the destination to North or South. The staff is very well trained and great services. On the other hand, the facilities are not in the favour of big families stay, as the washing machine services are not in the satisfactory level, such as you are not allowed to add in additional timing to the dryer once the timing is off and required to provide the full amount in order to start the dryer and the detergent powders tends to out of stocks quickly; however, it works normally well. The cleanliness of the hotel is average, as sometimes they did not help to change your towel daily (Even though it is great even) and since this hotel is prohibited of smoking, you will always smell someone is smoking in your room. Lastly, understand that it is a semi-budget hotel, but it is great to have more facilities such as physical fitness centre, as it was stated in Agoda that they provide this services. Overall, good value for money and great for solo trip traveler. Not recommended for big family groups.
