hey.. i went Taipei over the weekends. did check out the hotel. location is ok. but it looks like a love hotel to me. so din stay there.. stayed at rainbow instead. FYI, the king regency is very very cheap but at the lobby, u will be greeted with a basket of condoms which let ppl take for free.. so i assume tats a love hotel. also checked the room. the bed is rounded in shape so once again confirmed that i am in the wrong place liao.

In comparison, the king regency hotel is only bout NT1000 for a twin room. which is bout half the price of other 3 star hotel . but the hotel only has 1 old man as security guard who is sleeping when i was droppin by. n the door of the room is shakey. no card system for the lights n TV.. So i rather pay more for rainbow. which has quite gd room. n the TV has over 100 cable channels. Breakfast sucX. but overall acceptable.

If u r into chinese pop n celebrities. plan ur trip so that its across sat n sun. n do a bit more research. cos right in front of the rainbow hotel is the watsons temp stage where sure got celeb events on weekends
wow..seems like rainbow is highly recommended by you. king regency love hotel or the one with old man as sercurity? abit confused by wat u said

I was recommended Keyman's hotel by Naomi7115 here, and I must say, good choice. I can't compare with Rainbow since I have never been there, but if I were to go back again, I would probably still choose keyman. Excellent location - just opposite the Taipei Railway, MRT, and bus stations. All there. Big shopping mall, shops, and plenty of eateries, really plenty. They charged me NT1660 per nite for a single room.
pm to u some qns. hope to c a reply soon. thanks!

King regency is the "love hotel" which i assume it to be from the looks of its room. The hotel is also the 1 with 1 sleepy old man as security guard. I recommend u dun go for that unless u wan a love hotel 4 sx.

Rainbow is no. 1 recommended if u r a teenager who like hanging out in orchard rd like type of streets even at nite. cos its in "Xi Men Ding Pedestrain Mall". So at nite u can also walk walk n eat Ah Zhong Mee Sua which is jus 1 block away from the hotel.

However if u dun like crowded places. then rainbow is not for u. cos almost every nite streets will be filled with ppl n street food vendors.

haha.. wat too old to zui xing. its not the idea of zui xing. rather having free entertainment for the hotel u paid. the atmosphere over at Xi men ding over the weekends is great. u got to see how crazy the Taiwanese fans are over their idols.

n in XMD, at nite, when u walk on the streets, u will be able to listen to more than 10 different Jay Chou songs cos bout 1 in 3 shops play his song.
