The location of this hotel cannot be denied. It is just a 2 min walk from Ximen MRT Station Exit 6. There is a 7-11 at the hotel. The hotel is located beside Watsons and the Ximending Pedestrian Zone.
The staff are quite helpful. We asked for extra pillows and hangers and they were very accommodating to our requests.
The room is small but not too bad. The toilet is also clean and spacious. Water pressure is good and there is hot water.
While the cleaning timing is a little bit weird (there were a few times we went back at 430pm to put our stuff and the room was not yet cleaned), generally the cleaning is done quite well. Basic toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrush and comb is provided.
My major unhappiness with this hotel is how thin the walls are. You can hear EVERYTHING - from people walking outside, people talking outside, your neighbours blowing hair, taking a bath, flushing the toilet etc. It is funny how we are unable to hear the noisy street but we can hear everything going on outside our room.
There was once our neighbor checked in at 3am+ and we could hear them put down the luggage, unzip the luggage and take out some plastic bag. We could even hear their TV which was quite loud.
In the end, I couldnt take it and I had to call the front desk to help me request my neighbour to lower the volume. But credit must be given to the front desk because they came up in a few minutes and I could hear them requesting my neighbour to lower the TV volume. That night was quite unbearable for us.
If you are a light sleeper or someone who needs some peace and quiet, you might want to bring along ear plugs or .. choose some other hotels.
