Hi, needed some help. I'll be travelling to Taipei from 29th Apr - 3 May but call TS Hotel just now and they are all fully booked all the way to 1st May.

Anyone can give good recommendation for twin sharing room around Ximenting area for abt NT$1680 per night?

Btw, how can I get from Taoyuan Airport to Ximenting? Heard that by cab quite expensive.

TIA for helping.

Mayb can try Royal Castle. Mine trip in taipei is 11 May - 14 May and the price is 1780 per night. Call their frontdesk and the staff told me got bathtub. Pple here also hear got adult movie to watch

hi peeps, just to check with you guys. i heard from friends that in taiwan, 'most' hotels' toilet system will choke if we dump toilet papers into the toilet bowl. Normally they will provide a bin for u to throw in there. how true is it? ermm what i feel is that its a bit weird after u finish doing your business in there...

Think it's true too. Heard my friend choked up the toilet in taipei's party world. Only after it happens then she read a note in the cubicle that toilet paper is not suppose to be thrown into the toilet bowl.

i agree!!!
:x i choked one of the basement's @ sogo's. :s
crazy one... their flush not strong enough. :/

i think if do business. then just wipe and throw 1. then continue wiping but throw in the basket.
but i think its not very hygienic to be exact. ain't it?

but i think their mrt stations' flush all quite strong. so yah don't worry about choking mrt ones. :x
