Hi Amoro123,
You can check with these hotels on this list the top 10 near Ximenting or Taipei Station
http://www.freewebs.com/crazyazn/hotels.htm
You can also view Itineraries from the links on top of the page.

Freego Bus will pick you up at about 3pm latest for your flight at 6.25pm on Jetstar.

The fastest way will be to take the Kuokuang bus to Taipei Main Station and then MRT to Xinsheng or a short cab ride (Abt NTD100) By the way, when you cross the road from KDM to Exit 4 of Zhongxiao/Xinsheng Turn right and walk to 2nd traffic light, you are at Guanghua Elec market.
Walk down Zhongxiao E Rd Sec 1 to the lane Opp Exit 5 of Shangdao Remple mrt stop . Turn left and you can get good Taiwan Breakfast. Same lane, walk a bit further to Traffic lights, turn Right- and lots of eating places during Lunch time.
For snacks and drinks, there is a large supermarket just after the Exit 5 on your left. Prices low compared to other Supermarkets and the Convenience stores.

The first one was at Xing Yi near Yong Kang Street. You should visit there and Yong Kang Street, many things to eat. I only went to the Xing Yi before, the service was great and the price I feel was cheaper than in Singapore. The dumplings and the fried rice was good.
I went to the Dun Hua station's which is Zhong Xiao's cos that's what TS hotel staff said she always go that one.
The soup noodles. The soup had more flavour.
They had the very high class toilets.
and I like how Taiwanese take care of our belongings - have this "bag like table" and put everything inside then cover it with some cloth!
Great service. ^^

We have tried both LeCake and Vigor's pineapple tarts. We prefer LeCake as it is not too sweet, more fragrance and taste nicer as like freshly baked. Vigor also nice but more like packed snack and taste sweeter.

It is good that LeCake now has a branch in Taipei so no need to go all the way to Jiufen. Vigor is more known maybe they get tour buses to stop by their shop.
I somehow think Taichung one should be nicer. =x
My Taichung friend brought over from Taichung to Taipei for me from this stall:
阿明師老店太陽堂
台中市自由路二段11號
(04)222274007-8
Which is also this site: www.suncake.com.tw

They have ten in a box or twenty in a box.
They do deliveries to Taipei with some charges. and I remembered the lady said what 1 - 2 boxes also the same cost etc... or even more. Can ask yeah! ^^

Theirs is packed 5 in 1 packet. So called not as convenient as some - individual packets.
Was quite worried will spoil. But no, just finish before it expires. and leave it in a cool and dry place. - not hot places in one's house.

I liked those alot!

For those going many days, who do you do the laundry?
Is there any laundry shop near XMD or Taipei Main Staation?

There's a self service laundrymat near XMT, pretty near to TS Hotel. From the hotel, walk straight then turn to left.

Yup, There brought a stand to put our belongings inside. The toilet is pretty high class, got special lotion to clean the toliet seats, and another one for washing hands. Then got some electronic buttons which I think is similar to those in japan.
