Very good. Close to Ximen area. Cry first one that I stay in Taipei train station area. Much central than I expected. I would say I'll come again if I ever visit this area again. Lots of diners in the neighborhood.

“It may be quieter if you get rooms on the inner area, but I think you have better ventilation with those facing outside. It is not very noisy though as long as you keep windows closed and the a/c on. Try to get lodgings at TW 1 instead of 2 unless you don't mind walking at least 2 corners onwards.”
