    • 8.0.Very good

      Nicely designed hotel located a stone throw away from xmd. Easy to find. And easy for taxi to locate as well by telling them the street name. However there’s no windows in the room. Apparently it’s the same for all the rooms. The lightings are dimly lit as well. Industrial and modern design. Amenities are okay. Toilet and shower area are separated and are clean and no musty smell. Separated by a thick curtain. Space is considerably large for two adults and more than enough space to lay out big luggages. However the walls are thin and we can hear our neighbor’s loud tv and also their alarm ringing which woke us up. Not that good in that aspect.

      The hotel had a very unique style to it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, however the rooms do not have windows and were rather small as well.

    • 6.0.Good

      The hotel is a 15 min walk from xi men train station and about 10mins away from the shopping district of xi men ding. We stayed at a triple room for 3 nights. The room was slightly small without much space to open our luggage. The hotel's interior decoration is stunning with tons of vintage stuff. There is usually 4 front desk staff on duty (3 at night) so you dont have to wait too long to be served. They were helpful in food recommendations and calling taxi for us. My main gripes about the hotel are the (i) poor soundproofing and (ii) cigarette smoke. We got assigned probably the worst room (2001), which is next to the laundry room, first out of the lift, and at a major intersection. As the partition walls are paper thin, I got woken up multiple times by luggage rolling and loudly talking guests in the wee hours of the morning. One day at 7 or 8am some wise guy decided to do the laundry (which was deafening being on the other side of the wall). The hotel staff told me that I would be charged 400TWD since i did not make the request before noon. The ground floor lobby is filled with cigarette smoke so much that we gave up trying to sit at the tables there. Perhaps there could be signs to keep smokers away from the entrance and hotel staff to enforce a non smoking zone. The toilet also has a continual lingering smell of cigarette smoke as well.

      Unprofessional experience

      We booked 2 room for 8 nights, when check in, i provided the confirmation number, on the email also show 2 bedrooms, but the staff told us we only book one room, i had to make an international call to confirm with my family that we actually have booked two rooms, very unprofessional experience! After a long-haul of travel, we are all tired waiting there!

      Okay for a short stay

      The concept was very interesting - like a warehouse. Only downside was that toilet and bathroom had transparent windows to the room covered by shades which made it awkward if you are not a couple. Also, the bed was really hard and uncomfortable. Location is slightly far out from the action in Ximending too.
