Hey, Dont worry!!!,

Freego has a bus leaving Taipei starting at 4 am, with buses leaving every 20 mins. You can email them for the Bus Station nearest the Ximenting area and take a cab to that place. Here is their website:

http://www.freego.com.tw/

P.S. To Taoyuan city and toTaipei City from CKS is not much of a difference in travel time (15 mins diff at best)
THANKS!!!

I think I passed by HuaGuan Hotel when I was returning to Kilin Hotel. If I remember correctly, it should be opposite, or near Ximending Primary School. At least it's so closer to Ximending than Kilin....From the outside looks ok...Nearby got some nice-looking cafe and food store. But should be further away from LongShan Temple...Kilin closer...

Out of curious...has anyone walk to Longshan Temple...the streets near there is it the Red District har? Coz I saw quite a no. of obasan waering heavy makeup in the morning hanging around the street....
Does HuaGuan hotel looks like a motel or hotel to u?

mei shuing hotel not bad but next time i will try the new moon hotel. I also prefer no breakfast one.. That time when i stay at meishunag ard the corner of a strt got the whole stretch selling breakfast.. their fried chicken buger is superb.. better then KFC.. their kopi also not bad... but not thick enough leh.. Frankly speaking those who come back from taipei also miss their food i guess someone goes to the "wrong" stores to eat... or maybe expectation to high..
Mei Shuang hotel is which 1 har??? i abit blur .....izzit Mei Shang Mei OR Mei Kuan?

[QUOTE]

In the list at the link above, is LIFE Hotel. It is a small but safe hotel. Rooms clean, large toilets, but no breakfast e.t.c. . Location-Excellent. 2 mins to Shangdao Temple Station(One stop to Taipei Main Station- 2 stops to Ximen on the same line ) Also Blue line to Hsinyi area , Houshanpi.
Convenience stores, Food , Supermarkets e.t.c. all witinn 3 mins walk.
No Website. No deposit, just call to book if they got rooms. Take Airbus West -NTD110 direct to Lai Lai Sheraton Stop and then walk to Life Hotel- 5 mins away.
