Selected this hotel based on online reviews and pricing. Turned out that is was a great experience that can make a lot of chain hotels shameful. Pre-arrival communication in both emal and phone call was already a great start. Considering the price point, the room is just right as you get all necessary amenities. Check in was impressive as the...

Uniquely artsy boutique hotel with friendly bi-lingual staff. They were very helpful to assist in booking restaurants and airport transfers for us. The location of the hotel itself is perfect. Not too far from Exit 6 of Ximending station and the neighbourhood is perfect to explore the hustle and bustle of the city plus the art scene. Would definitely recommend...

Great location at the heart of Ximending, but not on the crowded part which is a plus for us because we don't like busy streets. Aside from the modern artsy interior, we love that it's always clean when we come back from tour. I have dust mite allergy and impressed that I didn't feel itchy during the whole stay. One...

Stayed here for the week. Smack right in the middle of Ximending. Easy check in and everything is what you would expect of most hotels nowadays. Easy access to shopping, most attractions and good food. Definitely can be recommended if you are looking for a place just to crash after a day of shopping.

We spent one night in a Standard Double Room and were quite pleased with it. For the price and location, well worth the money. It's only a few minutes walk if you cut through the shops, vendors and the crowds next to the station, otherwise you can walk around on the main road (ever so slightly less people) and get...

Excellent hotel at a affordable rate , located in a good location in ximending. The hotel room and toilet are well designed with a comfortable bed. Of all the 2 other hotels I stay around Ximending, SWIIO is the best hotel so far. I will come back again.
