Excellent location for hiking in outer Taipei!

by Steven M on 07 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Stayed here four times, and experienced several different rooms. There is something uniquely charming about this place that keeps bringing me back! Is it the river views or the birds chirping in the morning or the excellent nearby hiking? PROS: Walk to Mt Hemeishan, just across the charming old pedestrian suspension bridge over the river. Nice dining options on the river, or eat local food nearby or over the bridge in Bitan. It's convenient if flying to/from USA, as the hotel is 60-75 minutes ...

Decent for its price and value if you don't mind staying a little far from the CBD

by Cheng-Yi on 13 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

It's a non-smoking hotel but the moment you step into the hotel lobby, lift, storey corridor and the room itself, cigarette smell is in the air. I opened the window for a couple of hours to try getting rid the smell. Very close to the Xindian MRT station (a 5 min walk) and the Bitan scenic area. I got a room on the 7th floor facing the river, view is decent (not that the view is bad but Bitan itself is not really great as an attraction.) There are also rooms without riverside view so beware. It...

Smal newly renovated hotel/motel with a muddy smell

by whimsical_sd on 14 Jan 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Small hotel/motel with small rooms. Our room had a moldy/muddy smell once we entered. It has a broken dehumidifier that didn't work. The bed was so wet due to the humid weather (in December!) that my husband got sick from lying on a wet bed for the whole night. This hotel is next to the subway station in an older residential neighborhood. There is free Wifi and free breakfast and even free two porn channels. That makes me wonder if this is an hourly hotel. I would stay somewhere else next time w...

AVOID- Worst hotel ever been to

by Siamak S on 23 Nov 2015 (Couple Traveller)

We're from Brisbane. Spent a week in Taiwan mainly the East side, loved the hospitality, food and the rain forest in Hualien. The very last night before we flew to Japan, stayed in this hotel, New California in Xindian-Taipie. I booked the hotel as it was conveniently located, close to the MRT station and bus station. A very disappointing stay, though; the first room they offered was small with a musty smell, and super dirty. Most of the wall papers were about to peel off, one of the walls was...

16 hours flying to Taiwan

by Tom S on 27 May 2015 (Family Traveller)

The breakfast is great. Wife and kids love it. I especially like the coconut jam. All taiwan and western style. Staffs are friendly. Don't worry they do speak English. Highly recommend for Western tourist who wants to save a buck or two. The location is great. Try the broad walk restaurant s and live singing. It reminds me of New York South Street Seaport, but better atmosphere. Price are reasonable. Nice place to live. A lot of westerners live around the area.
