Cityinn Hotel Plus Ximending

Here is another hotel review.  This time, the hotel is in Taipei, Taiwan.  When we go on trips, we usually look for a hotel that is good on the budget, clean and a plus is near the shopping sites of course.  If you are visiting Taipei, then this hotel is definitely a must recommended for budget travelers.

There is a lot of branch for CityInn.  But our most recommended branch is in Ximending.  Ximending is one of the shopping districts in Taipei.  The location of CityInn is very convenient because it is located across Ximending.  It has enough distance to walk and far enough for it to be in a quiet area.  CityInn is also located near the exit points of their subway.
CityInn is a boutique hotel which means that it does not offer breakfast.  But not to worry, their location is so convenient that there are a lot of small restaurants and convenience stores nearby.  Just beside the hotel, there is a small restaurant that sells rice toppings.

CityInn has a total of 8 floors.  The Lobby, of course, is where the front desk is located.  There is also a Restroom as well as a coffee station and a computer station.  The computer station is a very convenient way to check your flight or to do web check-in and print your e-ticket.  You can print 1st 3 pages for free.

The basement floor has the Self-Service Kitchen or Pantry, Laundry Room, Common Room, and Computer Station.  If we get tired and want to go back to CityInn, we usually bring food back to the hotel and we will use their common room to eat.  Microwave ovens, coffee, and water dispensers are also available to use.  Be reminded that these are all self-service.  Be sure to clean up after eating.

The Guest Rooms start from 2nd to 8th floor.  We booked a family room that has two double beds.  Since the building has only one side that has windows, most of their rooms don't have windows.  However, the room that we booked has a window so it feels larger compared to other rooms.   Also, the area for walking in the room is a bit small that we only have enough space for placing our luggage.

You would see that they have the same amenities as you would find in a full-scale hotel.  They have the minibar, television, safety deposit box, etc.  They even gave us free Biscoff when we arrived.

And now for the most important part, their bathroom.  I love how clean the bathroom looks.  The toilet and the shower area are separate and large enough that if someone is taking a shower, the others can use the toilet. Just let them know 😊.

The only problem with their room is the temperature.  We were not allowed to adjust the temperature on our own.  So we are either super cold or we feel that the room is not cold enough.  I would not say hot because it is not really hot but more of a normal temperature.  Other than that, the room is great.

Oh, one more thing, they only have 1 elevator so it is a bit small and sometimes there is a wait since not all of the guests can fit in.  The elevator is also being used by the housekeepers but not to worry, the housekeepers give way if they see someone is already inside or they go out even if they haven't arrived in their floors.

If you are in a budget and looking for a place near the shopping district and near a subway station then this is the hotel for you.  The staff is friendly and their location is safe.  Want to book a room?  Click here to book through Agoda.
