Imperial H Hotel – Taipei (Zhongzheng)

Address:

In Taipei again, this time we choose to stay near the Taipei Main Station area. We usually like to stay at the Daan district but this around we choose the Zhongzheng area.

I stayed on Oct 31st to Nov 3rd. Their lobby is on the 11th floor. I stayed on the 7th Floor. My room was near the back of the back stairs.

Room – everything in the room are right. All amenities are there. Clean. Tea bag, Shower gel, Hair Dryer and Safe.

The only gripe I have is the Water Pump sound. When someone is using water, the floor on my room vibrate. The water pump sound is loud. I have requested to change room; they said I can only do it the next day. But the next morning, I decided not to change. I can accept the noise. Moreover, it’s a budget hotel.

The room is small. If you have two 28 inch bag, you might able to walk around. So, be aware on this.

NOTE: Standard room does not come with windows. NO Closet. It’s an open closet with 4 hangers.

Location – It’s has the best location. Right on top of Taipei Main Station, You can virtually go anywhere from this point. MRT or HSR. If you arrive via MRT, you need to walk through the K zone (Underground Mall) to reach the M and the Z zone. Once you are on the M or Z zone. You can choose to exit at M6 or choose an elevator in between Z2 and Z4 at the Underground Mall. If you take the elevator you will see the hotel logo the moment your elevator is on the main street.

Electrical jacks – Enough electrical jacks. Plus, the room comes with USB charging jacks, too. So, that was good.

Breakfast – NONE. They don’t offer breakfast. They provide 24hrs free coffee and bread on the 11th Floor. I saw a lot of guests bought Ramen from Family Mart on the ground floor and brought up.

Food – Plenty of food around this area. McDonalds is 2 minutes’ walk. Food courts are on the basement of next door mall. Starbucks is on the Underground mall. So…tons of food. No need hotel breakfast.

Bathroom – One thing good about this hotel is they provide washer for Muslim traveler and South East Asian. There is washer hose to wash after you have done your business. I have attached a photo.

Washing machine and Dryer – FREE. But they cut off electricity on the Washer and Dryer at 10pm. No IF or But. It’s auto shutoff. If your clothes is still washing, you need get like 6am to complete this task.

Overall, I can only give 2 stars because of the water pump sound. The plus are the location and variety of food nearby.

The best time to use the Washer and Dryer is around 6am to 12pm.  Once you hit 2pm or later, All the washer and dryer are occupied. There are no coin laundry nearby. The nearest is about 1.2 km away. No choice but to use theirs.

Taipei for 50 hours

Went to Taipei last week, main purpose was visiting relative. Most of our times were spent with relative. We did not  go anywhere.

I slipped out one afternoon for 3 to 4 hours to shoot some video for my youtube channel. Went out to Dihua Street, drop by Taipei 101 for couples shot. 



Via Hotel – Zhongxiao Fuxing 丰居旅館 忠孝館

Travel to Taipei last week with my father-in-law to visit relative there. Below is the hotel that we stayed during our stay. We choose this hotel because our relatives lived within 10 minutes walk.


I guess a lot of traveler like this is because its situated about 5 minutes walk from Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT station and Sogo Mall.



From Airport to the hotel


Another convenience is, it’s reachable by airport bus. We took Evergreen bus number 5201. The stop is MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing. After you get off the bus walked, walked toward the NET(clothing store) at the corner and follow along the walkway. Some landmark you will pass-by are Kao Chi Restaurant, Deja-vu hotel. Look into google map.


Lobby


Lobby is on the 3rd floor. Staff are very friendly. Getting to your room, you need to pass through a glass door via your hotel card. Pretty secure. Without that card, you practically cannot reach your room. So, take your hotel card with you when you leave the room.

Room

Room is small. If you have two large 28inch luggage, it can be a hassle. Once you open up both  the luggage, you can hardly walked. Some traveller will not mind. We don’t either because we know it’s going to be a small room.

NOTE:
  1. their standard room have NO WINDOWS. If you don’t mind this minor issues, there is no problem.
  2. Fourth floor room are not reachable by elevator. You need to carry your luggage up from the lobby.  

Toilet seat is the best. Have heat and the Japanese style dispenser.

All modern amenities in the room are there. For example, safety box, coffee & tea, hair dryer, 5 to 6 electrical jacks and shampoo and bath gel.


 This is the breakfast area.
