Just returned from Taipei yesterday.

I followed nuttyazn's 5D4N guide and the trip went very smoothly.

Really want to thank nuttyazn and fellow forumers for their constructive inputs.

I have definitely enjoyed myself for the past 5 days.

Next trip will be 1 month backpacking at Europe.

Hi all,

i going taipei end Oct 07, already booked air tix, now need to settle hotel.

i tried to read past threads, but 500++ threads is no joke!

think some of the more popular one are Wonstar, Rainbow.. is there any more good recommendation? of course must be near to Xi Meng Ding and MRT station. .. dun mind to pay a little more for comfortable room (best got Wifi!!)

and lastly what is the best way to book the hotel? online? or any tour agency?

thank you

dgps,

you can consider TS (Ta Shun) which is popular and also at XMD. I believe they have wifi too.
Best is call direct to book.

Other hotels mentioned in this thread at XMD include Futurestar, Neijiang hotel.

Ya, 500+ pages really tiring..

book direct is cheaper. but if book with agency some will include breakfast and they will provide transport too for a small sum. for me i dont mind paying abit more to save trouble. unless say if the airport has mrt like singapore then its better. cks airport i think still under construction

Rainbow hotel is really at the CENTER of XMD, which makes it very very accessible.

As for Wonstar, its nearer to the XMD Metro station, as compared to Rainbow.

Yes, It similar to SG. it best to check in 2hrs before. also to avoid the crowd. If you plan to get a LOT of thing there . Try to check in early so you have time to repack in-case you are over-weight.
