Happiness Inn Ximen
Ranked #140 of 262 Taipei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 August 2016 via mobile

Stayed for 6 days and 5 nights. When we just checked in, we found out some insects on our bed, bathroom, wall, floor. It was so disgusting . Then, we approached to the staff, they offered us another room which was nearer to the lobby.
The first night, we found out there were some tiny cockroaches in our room!!!! Besides, as the room was near to the lobby that other guests can enjoy their food and watch tv, it was very noisy , even it was 12am ++.
Highly not recommended to stay at this hotel! The price didn't worth for it though it was a great location.

We first got a room which stinks. No windows and very damp smell and it was located right in front of a common area where guests gathered and chit chat. It was so loud and smelly. Felt really uncomfortable and requested for a change of room. The staffs are friendly enough to give us a new room at the second floor. Luckily! The second room was WAY BETTER!

I will sum up a few points for this stay:

1. Strategic location. In the middle of the streets.
2. Friendly staffs.
3. Breakfast are provided at another restaurant nearby which are quite tasty.
4. Bed and pillows are super comfy.

1. If you are taking rooms at ground floor, it will be noisy. Super noisy.
2. Rooms are quite packed.

Overall, it was quite a happy stay. Do request for rooms above ground floor for a more comfortable stay.

Stayed for 7 days.
Location was good. The hotel is only 7 mins walk from Ximen MTR and 5 mins walk to the Ximending shopping area. You can basically drop by your room during your shopping and go for toilet break. Room is small but just enough for sleepover.
A room with windows would be a better choice.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with windows. Subject to availability.

I stayed at this hotel on early of October 2015.The room we stayed in was Family Room (2 double Bed).The hotel is very location wise as it is located 5-6 minutes away from Ximen MRT Station.
I enjoyed staying here because :
- the room is same as what as shown in the website.
- they allowed us to do early check-in as we arrived before the check in time (subject to hotel occupancy).
- Wifi connection is very good
- hotel provide dining area in front of the entrance. so we can enjoy our meal while watching TV. TV also provided in the room but if U want to hang out with your friends, the dining area is more comfortable)
- also provide coffee&tea maker(feel free to drink all day long)
- 5-6mins walking distance to Ximen Shopping District
- located at quiet&safe alley.There are few more choices hotel around but I prefer quiet surrounding as the hotels at shopping district is a bit crowded & noisy

Stayed: October 2015
