Hotel review: Diary of Taipei – Taipei Station Branch

Hello friends! I am back! Sorry it took so long. Anyway, check out my review and tell me what you think. Enjoy! 🙂

I was looking for a triple bedroom at agoda.com, and stumbled upon this hotel. First, I checked out the room photos and it looked nice. Second, I typed my preferred dates and it was available! Third, they had breakfast included in the triple bedroom.

The Introduction

The moment we entered the hotel lobby, Mandarin-speaking staff greeted us. I could only understand basic Mandarin so my friend helped me talk to the staff. I think some staff could understand Basic English too.

Check-in Time was around 3 in the afternoon but since we arrived way too early – at around 12noon, we left our luggage near the dining area (they will give you a small paper that you need to present in order to claim your luggage afterwards) and headed out for lunch (Din Tai Fung! Wait for my next review)

Nope, these luggages weren’t ours. HAHA.. hmmm, come to think of it, I wasn’t able to take a decent luggage photo. 😄

The lobby was quite small but well lit and clean. It has a small circular cushion or sofa for 4-5 guests to sit on. It has two elevators on the right side of the hotel reception for easy access.

The Location

The hotel was just a 5-minute walk to Z10 MRT exit, though you still need to walk for around 15 minutes to reach the underground train station. No worries though, you can check out a lot of stores while walking underground.

Some stores around the hotel area: 7-Eleven convenient store, Starbucks

From Z6 MRT exit, you’ll find H&M, and near the area Mc Donalds and Uniqlo.

From M8 MRT exit, there’s TIM HO WAN (dimsum overload!) and Pablo’s Cheesecake (with no long lines!)

The Room

They gave us a quadruple room instead of a triple bedroom. So nice and generous of the hotel! J The room was small but very clean. It has a table near the door, a mini refrigerator, and a TV. I liked the ambiance and the lights were all working fine. Each queen size bed had four pillows each! So we had eight pillows in total! It was great! The pillows were fluffy and the bed was just right. We had a good night’s rest because of it. Except when your neighbors slam their door without holding the doorknob.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was small but the shower is oh-so powerful! I wished to have more time spent in the shower; it feels like I was being massaged at the back. Haha.

Bathroom amenities include hotel slippers, toothbrush and toothpaste, comb, cotton buds and floss, soap, cup, towels, and pumping shower gel and shampoo (which smells so nice!)

The Food

Breakfast was great! I love the food! They served a variety of food: bread, vegetables with meat, noodles, rice, hot porridge and condiments and my favorite SOUP haha. (check the photos)
