The Purple Garden Hotel is a perfect hotel near Taipei Train Station. First and foremost, if you email the hotel directly, they can answer any question you have within 12 hours. They staff is friendly. The rooms are nice and I loved the decor. I took the bus from Taipei International Airport and walked to the hotel in less than...

Basic and cheap. Wouldn't go on my honeymoon but if you have done a lot of solo travel in Asia you have seen worse. View from window was a sprawl but it's very close to the station and cheap. Clean but beige! The on suite was nice and water was always hot and with right pressure at all times that...

The hotel location is just above Zhongshan Station (exit R4)and just a short walk away from Taipei Main Station. Do go out and explore the surroundings for really delicious meals instead as the cafeteria only serves breakfast with very limited choice of food (bread and porridge only). The room is quite small and simple but good enough. Oh yar! Do...

The room was quite small. There were no toiletries included, not even handsoap in the washroom. Another funny thing was that the door and wall for the bathroom was frosted glass, so you get the whole voyeurism experience. The bed was hard as a rock. The positive was that it was right next to the metro and a. shopping area.

We were supposed to stay 3 nights at Purple Garden Hotel. The photos on their website looks okay and most comments on TripAdvisor suggest that the place was good. We booked the place. When we got to the hotel, we were surprised at how close it was located - just right next to a MRT entrance/exit. However, when we manage...

As it was new year's eve, we didn't have much choice. I wrote directly to this hotel and they confirmed my reservation. They can reply in English but allow some delay in response. The room is clean, small and basic. It's location is ideal as it is just next to Exit No. R4 of the Zhongshan Metro Mall from Taipei...

This hotel is located at R4 exit of Zhong Shan Metro Station Exit / Entrance. It's really a good deal for the budget minded and the hotel is quite decent. There is a vegetarian restaurant along the stretch of roads too. =) I will definitely be opting this hotel in future if I travel to Taipei again.

This hotel is located just outside the Zhongshan MRT Exit R4. The hotel was also kind to let us leave our luggage at the dining area before we could check-in. We saw good reviews of this place, however, it was rather disappointing. We booked 2 twin and 1 queen rooms, only the queen room at Lvl4 had good working connection...

Just situated 2 mins from the train station and located near to cafes. Welcoming receptionist and superb service. The price is really affordable for Taipei and the room is nice and clean. Highly recommended for a budget stay in Taipei and if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Xi Men Ding. If you missed the...

I have come to Taipei many times. The Purple Garden is a very exact type of hotel. It is not the most luxurious, but if you're looking for a inexpensive hotel a short walk from the Taipei main bus and train station, then this is the best I've found. Literally you walk 7 minutes and you're there from the station....
