Lately, I got hooked with the smartphone app: Uber. you can use this app to call a nearby uber private driver and put the address of the destination that you want to go. The app will tell you the estimated rate. The Uber private driver usually arrive to the building within 3 to 5 minutes and take me to any place I would like to go in Taipei. The fare is slightly cheaper compared with taxi rate and the service is great too.

Great unit, clean with all amenities needed for family of 4, location can't be beat, mrt station literally across the street
We stayed at Shane's apartment for about 10 days. Annie met us upon arrival and explained everything to us. She was very friendly and helpful. She even brought us fruits and OJ!
Shane's apt had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. He has extra blankets, pillows, umbrellas, washer/dryer, apt phone, stove, oven, microwave, just to name a few!
Next time we come back to Taipei, there is no doubt that we'll stay at the Anhe Apartment again! Thank you Annie and Shane!
We had also request the use of the mobile wifi device, and it was super useful for us in Taipei. We had internet access everywhere. It made finding restaurants and contacting local friends and family for meetups via apps so much easier!!
Shane's place was incredibly safe, convenient, clean, and quiet. Both Shane and Annie were very easy to contact; Annie met us at the condo when we checked-in. She made sure we had everything we needed and answered any questions we had. One INCREDIBLE perk is, upon request, they provide a MiFi unit you can take with you. This was important for us to navigate the city -- finding places to eat, go see, etc. (Google maps on our phones!)
The condo was perfect for our trip ... my mother, fiancé and myself. Located very close to the Xinyi Anhe metro station (2 entrances), as well as the Tonghua Night Market. We took the metro everywhere we went. It's only one station from Taipei 101. They provided us with two sets of keys so we didn't have to worry about schedules when my mother went out with friends and my fiancé and I explored the city.
There is no doubt, the next time we're in Taipei ... we'll be staying at Shane's place!
I live in Shane's place about 10 days.. It's really a great place to live.. I live here with my family (4 people), and it is still comfortable.. This apartment is very good, clean, neat, everything is work and run perfectly.. The in-house wifi and mobile wifi is great.. What make me happy is the apartment is equipped with complete cooking utensils, they even have a rice cooker in it.. My family very happy to live here.. This apartment is located in good area and exactly in the heart of taipei.. Pretty close to Taipei 101.. MRT and bus station is just about 1 min walk and absolutely no difficulties to get a taxi.. The doorman is very nice even they hardly can speak english.. A great neighbourhood, many stores, closed to night market.. It's really a great place to spend your holidays..
Shane's apartment was excellent - clean, central, comfortable. I was impressed with all of the amenities available that I didnt expect, such as the mobile wifi hotspot, iron, hairdryer, dishwasher.
Would happily recommend this to anyone who is looking for a central apartment in Taipei - a very short walk to the night markets, the world trade centre, and some excellent cafes just downstairs (Chord jazz cafe was a great surprise at the doorstep!)
Staying at Shane's apt in Xinyi has been a great experience !
First are the hosts. Shane and Annie have been wonderful, with prompt responses and easy check in and check out.
Second is the location. For those of you who would like to stay outside the main tourist area but close enough for comfort, this is the place to stay. Perched in a more quite part of the core Taipei city among office buildings, but yet only 1 mrt stop away from 101 and 5 mins cab ride to Zongxhiao Dunhua (Where Luxy and many night hotspots are). Plus taxis are abundant right in front of the apartment, even on odd hours like at 3am.
And third of course is the apartment it self. It is very homey and you would instantly feel like it's your own home, with nice sofa and tv, well equipped kitchen, washing machine and all. It ceritainly makes your holiday feel more personal compared to staying in a staid hotel room. The main bed room is great, with lots of wardrobe space and comfortable bed. However if you have friend/family staying at the second room, it's a bit on the small side as it is originaly a work room with only simple mattress added in.
The only drawback I experienced is only the way in which the lobby downstairs is locked at night. As I visited Taipei for parties (which mean I left the apt very late in evening and back early morning, the security would have locked the main lobby door and you would need to wake them up and ask them to open it if you are back between 1am to like 5am, just a small inconvinience though as the guards are helpful (they dont speak english though).
So in all, great place to stay and would certainly recommend the place.
