Y Hotel Taipei
Ranked #23 of 282 Speciality Lodging in Taipei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2016

I like this hotel for its superb location. Literally one to two minutes' walk from exit M8 of the Taipei MTR station, it is also walking distance to the railway, high speed train, airport bus and intercity bus stations/terminals. Lots of buses, food and shopping (above and underground) around the neighborhood. The hotel is in the process of upgrading, the room I booked is on a floor which is not renovated yet, so the room is a bit old. However it is clean and everything works (fridge, TV, air-con, hairdryer, shower, toilet flush, lights, thermos flask). I was initially given a room facing the passage to the elevators and it was a bit noisy when groups of people head to the elevators. The staff arrange for a change of room, this was handled very professionally. Actually every staff I met, from concierge to chambermaid to front office were polite, helpful and cheerful. One small thing I dislike: the brown slippers. It blends in with the carpet :- )

Room Tip: avoid room whose entrance faces the passage to the elevators

Great location for airport shuttle, subway, and underground shopping street, etc. For the room interior I was surprised that they had updated the design. Value for my money. I would stay here again if I travel for business. Just remember if you need an ironing board, ask for it as they don't have one inside the rooms.

Good location. Very accessible to Taipei Main Station. Food stalls right across the hotel where one can buy breakfast and convenience stores nearby. Staffs are very helpful, rooms are modern but pillows are a bit hard. Overall pleasant experience.

I stayed here for 4 days with my parents and younger brother. We chose to stay here because this hotel offered a room with 1 double bed and 2 single beds - the double bed for parents and singles for my brother and me. Room was clean and comfortable, easily accessible from the metro station.(Taipei central station) Staffs were nice, wi-fi quality was descent. Breakfast menu was just alright and was not expensive. Descent and comfortable nights we had here.

My 2nd stay, this time with my parents and sister. We booked a family suite which came with one double bed and 2 single beds with not one but two bathrooms! No need to fight over bathrooms which is fantastic. One bathroom comes with a bathtub. The toilets are now bidet toilets upgraded from my last visit 4 years back. The laundry facilities are the best. 50 ntd for 30 min wash and another 50 ntd for 50min drying. Laundry came out fresh and dry after one cycle. Do note the laundry rooms on L6 and 7 only open from 8am till about 10 or 11pm. There is a 15% off discount for ymca anniversary till end June 2016. So we were delighted to find out that the huge family suite only cost ntd5780 a night. There is wooden partition and cutains in between which you can draw for greater privacy between each sleeping area. A very nice sofa area for 4 pax in front of tv too. They only have 1 tv though unlike the other family quad rooms I stayed in Kaohsiung and Taichung (in any case I realised you only get to watch 1 tv since each time u use the remote it works on Both tvs!). It's a quiet hotel and the staff don't smile an awful lot or are extremely knowledgeable. But they did take the effort to surf the internet and make calls to try to help. The hotel is just opposite the taipei main station and a few minutes walk from M8 exit. If it rains, it can get a bit cold walking though so you may wish to use the caesar park elevator to get to street level and then to Y hotel. The breakfast cost just 100 Ntd which you can decide to buy from the front desk if you feel lazy. Breakfast choice is between porridge with 4 side dishes and western breakfast (eggs, toast etc.) plus a hot coffee or tea. The western breakfast is average. However waiting time is long for food to be served so if you are in a rush just zip off to any shop opposite the hotel for some quick breakfast.
