Location is good, hotel is right across the exit of Ximending station and the Ximen Market is just a few steps away! They offer free coffee, free breads, free water during breakfast in the reception area! This is aside from the KFC breakfast coupon we got. The staff is very friendly and nice too. They give free maps and pens...

Furniture and decor look like this hotel built 1970 and not renovated since then. Windows not been cleaned since then either. Nowhere in the room to open a suitcase and put stuff. What they thinking ? Obviously no one cares ! Price cheap location excellent but if you can afford to pay more don't come here

A comfortable hotel tucked in Ximending, located close to Ximen Station. Walking distance to night market with plenty of street food stalls. I booked a family room, so it sleeps four in a room. I do not have any photos of the room, I only have photos of the lobby. Coffee, tea, cappuccino is freely available from the machines. There...

Stayed there for 2 nights, regretted as I was given the corner room with 2 queen size beds. I shifted the beds together and the floor was really dirty. They did clean it the next morning. At night as there is singing downstairs, it can be heard very clearly from my room. Not ideal for those with children as the...

Love this place. When the taxi brought us here, I thought the hotel was going to be nasty, as admittedly, from the outside it looks like a cheap hostel. But when you get to the room, you'll be surprised as it has ample space and very clean interior. Of course it's not a luxury hotel, it doesn't have amenities and...

Facilities of the room are old and not clean. Awkward layout with the sink in the room not in the bathroom. Air refresher is so strong that makes people inside sick. Worst of all, they moved out all our luggage and belongings before we checked out! Apparently they do not take customers seriously. Very unorganized and Definitely not worth the...

hotel is at the heart of Taipei - Ximen station and it's a walk within 2 mins when you reach the hotel, it's through a tiny passage and easily missed. Reception is on 5th Floor. Staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are big and clean, the only downside is that the walls are paper thin and you can hear...

Pros - location Cons - breakfast included = KFC coupons. Not wrong, but really disappointing. - steps up and down in the room were dangerous for kids and exhausting with luggages - paper thin walls - noisy streets at night - laundry services = take a 5 min walk with your bag of clothes to the next sister hotel or...

We were looking for a budget hotel when it was 1hr left before our flight to Taiwan. I came across Diary of Taipei Hotel. There are reviews that it was not good, but since we are tight on a budget, I'd go for it. I booked one room before we boarded. When we arrived to Ximending, it was just really...
