We stayed in a big room 2 queen beds 4 persons, it was spacious, the hotel is near train station and mall, but the hotel doesnt have a lift, you need to carry your luggage to the 2nd floor, hotel is located in an alley, free use of umbrella when it rains, complimentary water included
This is a lovely hotel and great value for money. It is in a good location, close to a night market and walking distance to fruit stalls and good transport links (I.e. Taipei main station). The front desk has great staff. Emily and her colleagues were very nice and helpful all the time and looked after me well, making recommendarions for sight seeing and food options and also helping with storing my luggage. Recommend if you need a good, well priced hotel. It’s also good value for money compared so some hostels if there are two people.
We enjoyed a 4 day stay here and it was Boutique style hotel, wonderful staff convenient for bus and train travel. English cable TV channels close to local night market and restaurants. Will be staying again.
Our room for 3 was smaller than a small Hongkong hotel. There wasn't even enough space to open our luggage. The room should at best house 2 people. It was extremely inconvenient to have to hop over luggage every time we walked to the washroom, which was also very small, with no hooks to hang clothes. The wifi on the third floor was so weak it might as well be non-existent. The staff were helpful, however. They helped to call for cabs and bring our luggage upstairs. (By the way, there's no lift in the hotel) I am grateful for the bountiful supply of bottled water in the room. There are always 3 in the room and 3 in the toilet so we are never short of water. There's also a safe which was helpful. Out of the 4 hotels we stayed in on our 8-day trip, only this one had a safe. Location wise, it is a 10 minute walk to the taipei main station and maybe about 8 minutes to the Zhongshan station. Along the way, there are breakfast places and convenience stores.…
We got a room for 3 pax and it was a squeeze. Hardly any room for us to put our luggages and walk through. We had to put luggages on the table. There were drawers under the bed you could pull out and store things but it’s not feasible having to do that everytime you need to access your luggage. Pulling the drawer out also takes up the limited space and restricts movement. The bed is packed all the way to the edge of the room table and it is unlike what is shown in some of the photos portraying the rooms as pretty spacious. For 3 pax, I would have expected them to give a more spacious accommodation. WiFi is also very weak. I have been trying for the past 1 hour and cannot even connect to it. The only plus point is that the receptionist was kind enough to offer to help us carry one of our large luggage up to the third floor because there is no lift. So not recommended for with large/heavy luggage.…
The property, which can be reached from North Exit 3 of Taipei Main Station on foot, served as an ideal base for three nights during my recent trip. The staff were welcoming and happy to assist with directions and recommendations. Facilities were excellent with safety and cleanliness never an issue. A short stroll will take you to the nearby night market and you’ll read a bit about the area’s history en route. A fabulous find in an enthralling city.
I was here for only one night on an extended stopover. The location is good and is walking distance to the night market. Good shops available with food. At night the place kind of shuts down. The rooms were simple and fine quite basic but sufficient for one day,
Excellent location near Taipei Main Station and Songshan Stn. Although rooms were quite small, they were very clean and cleaned daily. Staff very helpful. Lots of local eateries and shops nearby. Great budget hotel.
This hotel is rather near to Taipei Main Station and Zhongshan Station so the location is good. However, the hotel does not have an elevator so you may need to climb the stairs if you are not staying at the ground level. There is NO staff from 12am-7am.
I'm comparing this to another hotel I stayed at in Taipei, where the rooms were also small, but at least it had a big lounge area with space to sit. The Bayman appears bigger in photos. The lobby is small and there is one table between door and reception. So if you have to wait around for a bit it's not very pleasant. The room is tiny as well. Room for 2 bags only when the door is shut. It's all modern and clean though. But, the heating/AC is controlled centrally. I wanted the AC off and heating on because it was bad weather. The shut the AC off for our room but couldn't turn the heating on because it's a one for all system. The hotel is relatively close to the main station, about a 10 min walk. There are shops, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity. The staff was very nice and helpful. I hope my photos give you a better idea what the hotel really looks like.…
