Hotel is a block away from the center of action in Ximending. You have to cross a busy intersection. Rooms were very and thoroughly cleaned. Staff were very helpful. Free tea, coffee, crackers and chips until 2200. Also doir of hotel connected to a 7-11 store which helps. I just wish they had more variation with breakfast. But overall; great hotel
Traveller from Vallejo, CA
The hotel is located a brisk 2-minute walk from Ximen MRT station and a 45-minute drive from Taoyuan International …More
The hotel seems very new and decorated nicely however the noise were horrible. You can hear everything in the hotel room from your neighbors to people walking in the lobby. The restroom was also decorated very weird where water splashes everywhere on the floor when you shower. The one thing that I LOVED during my stay was how convenient it was located because I was right across from Ximending and next to our hotel was Cosmed that sold cosmetics.
hotel is convenient in ximen area, lots of shops and easy to find place to eat. however. hotel is quite noisy as Ximen is busy.
Car.,s noise is huge and rooms with window is extremely noisy. rooms inside is still easily disturbed by the toilet water flush of adjacent room. anyway, hotel room is clean and staff is extremely courteous and helpful.
During my visit to TW three years ago, I lived in CityInn hotel in Tai Pei Main Station and I was very happy about their service. This time I chose to stay in the CityInn Hotel in Ximenting. I am surprised to know that he hotel is very close to the train station and night market, which is very convenient for travellers. The hotel staff is very caring and observant. When they saw me holding a paper box, they took initiatives to ask if I required a bigger one and immediately found one for me. I really appreciate for their kind assistance. Besides, the staff gave me a big surprise when they found that it's my birthday :) They sent me a birthday cake and a birthday card, which highlighted my trip in TW. I would highly recommend this hotel to my friend and consider choosing this hotel during my next visit to TW.
I had a good time at SWIIO.
The location was convenient and right in the fun environment of Ximending. The room was very clean, though a little small, but it was sufficient for 2 adults. The wifi was very decent, and the communal lounge area for all guests was well equipped and stocked with vending machines for teas and coffees.
Overall, it was a enjoyable stay!
Sometimes called the Harajuku of Taipei, this fashion and shopping area in the northern part of Wanhua District has a thriving Japanese subculture. Closed to cars, its busy pedestrian avenues bustle with the intensity of Times Square. Ximending's many clubs draw young people from around the city and contain a lively LGBT community. Mengjia Longshan Temple is a 20 minute walk to the south.
