ya Ximen station is close to the XMD area.

My advice is to stay just outside of the actual XMD area, not in the actual place itself.
Too noisy in XMD itself.

Ximen is quite a convenient place to stay.


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.

Where would count as outside of XMD area? Is getting around by taxi better than train for a group of 4?

from there u all can take cab which is less than 100ntd to your hotel in xmd

Hi All,

Any recommended Hotels that is literally located in the heart of Xi Men Ding? I went to Taiwan once before 2 years back and stayed at Rainbow Hotel. The location was super good though rooms were small but just for sleep so we are fine with it.

Plan to return to Taiwan again and this time still wish to stay at Xi Men Ding area. What other hotels is located in the heart of Xi Men Ding? Which once we get out of hotel, the shopping and food are already visible.

My budget will be SGD$85 or less per night for a room with 2 people.

Thanks in advance!

May I suggest next time you also share what are the exact travel dates. Because what we checked is always different. And please share the current rates not the past ones.

my understanding is also that
check in at 8pm, since they have already explicitly put that

guess the reason for that is because
maybe the hotel have hourly rates, or they anticipate that a small portion of guest would stay until before 8pm, based on their past records
which maybe due to ppl checking out earlier if their flight is departing at nightt

hence, would usually not book tat room. Cox understand that Taipei hotel very strict. most hotels would only let you check in 3pm, or earliest 1pm, if their hotel policy check in timing is 3pm.
hence if your hotel booking remark puts in 8pm, guess you can only check in earliest 6pm, subject to room availiability.
