I'm planning to go Taipei in Dec, realized Rainbow Hotel (my type of budget) is booked during those dates I want, so am looking for alternatives.

Shortlisted a few:
- OneStar
- TS
- FutureStar
- East Dragon

Comments about each? I'm leaning towards OneStar....
I have no preference over any hotel but I'm trying Royal Castle in October after being recommended by friends/agencies and also from reviews from Internet.

Mainly because of the location as it is about only a few minutes walk to Xi Men Station. Heard have bath tub/many tv channels/internet/coldorhot water dispenser too.

Most complaints were about dim lightings + no windows. The rest are fine.

Thanks!

Thumbs up Futurestar

i don't know if the onestar is wonstar that u're referring to.. but basically i feel that wonstar and east dragon is abit further away from the XMD station. and wouldn't take that..

i've only stayed in futurestar so far and really loved that place alot, due to its accessible location. it occupies only the last 3 levels of a building however.

the XMD Station underpass is within a few steps away from the hotel. cashbox ktv is just one road away, which is really convenient for us as we sang until 3am on 2 occassions and need not worry about getting back home, since we're staying so near. the happening XMD area is just at the back of the building.

the hotel room is really cozy.. i would recommend that you take the rooms on the 7th level only, which starts from a flat rate of NT1380. better call to find out. the rooms on the other levels (8th & 9th) are not very worth it because the decor is kinda old. rooms on the 7th level however, are more modern and very very cozy. there was ample space to put our luggages in the room. plus there's a bathtub, cable tv, fridge, hairdryer, hot water dispenser and windows with curtains.

the staff also gave us 20% discount on the overall price and are very friendly. just tell them that you require the rooms to be cleaned every time you leave the hotel and they will do it for you.

on the day you're waiting for the freego bus to pick you to the airport, they will give you a room to clean and freshen up as well.

anyway, that was our first trip to taipei and we decided on futurestar because of its pricing and our budget. the stay was really pleasant and both my friend and i have decided to stay back at the same hotel again on our return visit to taipei in the future.

oh yes, this hotel is booked quite fast..so if you decide on it, better call them early.

extreme left of the airport... anyway you will see a big information counter after immigration.. if not sure just ask the staff there where to find those coach services..then she will point to one direction and you just walk to the end of that direction.

upon reaching there, you will see many coach service counter by different companies, freego is also there.

Tks Saoirse and CubeFX! I'll probably just check out Royal Castle, FutureStar if TS (my first choice now) gets fully booked.
