dede1217,
what's ota? I had searched through some hotel sites using 30/12/2015 to 02/01/2016 (grand hyatt, home hotel) to get a gauge of the price, but might not be accurate as it's too close to the date (I'm planning for 2017 new year, not 2016 new year). want to ask if it is too close to 101 to get a good view of the fireworks? or somewhere further will be better?
ota such as booking.com , agoda, hotels.com, etc
haha ur travel date should be super expensive ...
grand hyatt if normal period shld be abt 250sgd or more per nite already

wow ... think good enuff shld be at least 30m2 ...
can try cosmo hotel their room size shld b not bad ...

else can try other hotel , higher tier room.
like inhouse, their smaller room is 16m2, however their higer tier room think is 26m2 ... their smaller room is abt 120per nite for two with breakfast. 16m2 might be too small for u , as the size is around the same as hotel81, which is 14m2 ....

the higher tier room shld be around 160sgd per nite for two with breakfast.
better to book those with bath tub

Amba hotel & Inhouse hotel both also about 160 to 170 sgd per night.
But I'm leaning more towards Amba.

I recently just back from Taiwan and stay at this hotel call green world zhongua @ Taipei. (5 min walk from ximen exit 5), very very near to the newly opened Hotel Midtown Richardson.

I booked double room with city view (come with simple breakfast) at about $600 for 5 nights stay. The room itself is very big, neat, comfortable and clean. The hotel also have day tour to jiufen/shifen at NT600 per pax

Ximending is just opposite the hotel across the road, but its not noisy .
Hotel itself covers 4 level which is 10, 11, 13 and 15. The recept area is at level 13. Share same building with go sleep hotel(cant remember clearly)

The only con about this hotel room is the small bath tub inside the toilet.
After bathe, must be careful of the wet floor.

so far the cc rates quite lousy but up to you if you prefer to earn rebates/miles. only cc payment will be variable amt. cash should be fixed amt in twd, no?

Does Ximen station normally refers to XMD area? Shortlisting a few hotels near the station for stay in end April. My parents and my gf so will need 2 rooms.

Riverview suites look very nice. Budget around $100-130 should be just nice.
