(TAIWAN) Hotel To Stay in Taipei – Ximending (Reviews)

Tomorrow Hotel, 明日大饭店

We’ve book the hotel at XMD area, is call Tomorrow Hotel. Is located right at XMD. The MRT station is XiMen station.

We get the cheapest hotel stay and their service not bad too.

We wanted to get a room with bathtub, and surprisingly they have for this hotel. Is just what we needed.

The reason why we choose this hotel is because is near XiMenDing Night Market! We want to enjoy to the fullest! Ha-ha! Is very convenient, you can just shop until full bags and back to hotel then head down again for some nice supper or something 🙂

Service Rate

The service wise not bad, the staff there are all friendly and helpful, maybe some due to busy they will not really answer your questions but they will still give you clear information. They will guide you to your room and we actually reach earlier so we request the hotel to keep our luggage for us until the room is ready for check in. So we went for a walk and get those daily use stuff from nearby shops.

You don’t have to worry about food or things to buy for daily used stuff, they have a lot of shops around. Like guardians, Watson, and downstairs is just XiMenDing Shopping District. So I highly recommend this area to stay.

We very satisfied with the room, is very clean and is just a simple small room and bathroom perfect for 2 of us. 👍

Westgate Hotel,

This is another recommended hotel also located at XiMenDing. The location was very close to Ah Zhong Mian Xian and XiMenJie.


This is 5 Star Hotel in Taipei. The view of the hotel is very nice and big. The room was clean and aesthetically pleasing.

Service Rate

As for the service is excellent, toilets are all very clean. They also have an extensive range of choices for breakfast which is super great. Also have a laundry room for you to wash your laundry with detergent provided at no extra charge. For the price wise will be slightly pricey as is a 5 star. One night will be around $191.
