Finding the Hotel and Checking in

The hotel was VERY EASY to find! It was just right in front of the bus stop, and U Bike parking. It was also 30 seconds away from the Ximending MRT Station entrance!

Orange Hotel Ximen was also soooooo close to the shopping district! To be exact, it just took me 47 seconds to reach this area from the lobby of the hotel.

Checking In

When we got off the bus, I instantly saw the hotel and we checked in immediately.

Checking in Orange Hotel Ximen review of Happy and Busy Travels to Taiwan

The staff were friendly and assisted us, they also informed us about the rules and regulations in the hotel.

By the way, the hotel wants to be eco friendly even in a small way, so they do not place toiletries in the room. You have to ask the staff if you need any toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, cotton buds, etc.

Our favorite Orange guy was also here!

Happy and Busy’s Smileys

Cleanliness


The staff of the hotel did a great job keeping the hotel sparkling clean! Our rooms were cleaned everyday.

Facilities


We love the public space, with the space, we got to know other guests, and had unlimited cereal, yogurt, fruits and drinks 24/7! Busy and our friends used the area to work even though we were on vacation. We also like the luggage counter services.

Service


The service was on point! The staff accommodated us very well in our check in, and the other staff helped us if we needed anything. They even allowed us to see the other rooms when we requested to see the other kinds of rooms.

 

Value for money


The money paid for staying in the hotel was worth it considering the amenities and quality of our stay in the hotel.

 

Location 


The hotel has its own building and it was close to the public transportation (30-second walk to the MRT Ximen station entrance, 10-second walk to the bus stop, and 5-second walk to the U Bike parking), convenience stores, restaurants, and Ximending shopping district.

 

Ambiance 


The theme “Orange” was felt in the whole hotel. We also love how the rooms were set up because it added to the feeling of relaxation while resting in the room. Plus we get to enjoy the view of the city through our window.

 

Food 


The 24-hour yogurt, cereal, drinks, and fruits all-you-can was delightful great! For our breakfast we get to enjoy different cheese, ham, and eggs.

Overall, our stay was perfect! We had more than we need!
