☆ Taoyuan International Airport is the main airport for Taipei. A shuttle bus from the airport takes approximately 40 minutes and costs about $4 USD. It will drop you off at Taipei Main Station (The last stop of the shuttle bus).
★ As we are so close to the airport shuttle drop off point, only 3 stops away from Taipei Main Station, you can get on the subway, but if you want to get a taxi it will only cost about $2-3USD. (We can also come and meet you).
☆ If you would like to get a taxi from the airport straight to the apartment it will cost approximately $40-50 USD.
★I can arrange pick up service from the Airport for 40 USD (1200TWD)
☆ If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask and i look forward to meeting you!
Interaction with Guests
I live very close by (2 streets away) so I am always close by if you need help every day of the week.
It's a FANTASTIC location with so many restaurants to choose from, a traditional market, an MRT to all the important places on your doorstep and shopping too.
It's also very peaceful set off the main road down a quiet street.
The MRT station is 2 - 3 minute walk away. There are places to park your car or bike outside. There is the city YouBike scheme only 2 minutes away, pick up a bicycle and ride around the city on the cycle paths for very very cheap. Perfect.

Pierre and his team have set up a convenient place to stay. The room isn't big, but it's comfortable. There's plenty of storage for your luggage, the bathroom is clean, and there's a washer on the roof. Towels and sheets are also kept on the roof in a large closet. A filtered, ice-cold water fountain is right outside the room, and proved to be very useful.
We stayed for one month, and Pierre's team was helpful from start to finish. We opted for hiring a taxi from the airport through Pierre, and it worked perfectly -- well worth the money. Upon arrival we found out the apartment only has 2-prong power outlets, but within the day Pierre's assistant Yulia bought an adapter for us.
The location is a 4-6 minute walk from Dongmen Station on the MRT. Across from the station is Yongkang Street, which is loaded with restaurants. Try out Din Tai Fung -- The New York Times calls it one of the 10 best restaurants in the world, and I have to admit it's some of the best food I've had. Hard to believe it's down the street from this quiet apartment.
제가 도착하는 날에는 Pierre가 시간이 안된다하여 친구인 Tim이 숙소까지 안내해주었습니다. 숙소가 융캉제 쪽에 가까워 접근성이 매우 좋았습니다. 또한 주택가에 위치해 있어서 전혀 시끄럽지 않고 조용했습니다.
두 명이 묵기 적당한 크기의 방이였습니다.
First of all, the location is the best. Just in front of Dongmen station, you can easily go anywhere in Taipei, and enjoy yongkang st. 'til late at night. Even you don't need to wait for the famous 'din tai fung'. I really enjoyed staying. Room was very neat and cozy and Tim was very friendly. Thanks for everything!
Pierre's apartment was perfect for our 4 day stay in Taipei. His apartment is located very close to a central MRT station that is close to bakeries and Ding Tai Fung. In the morning, there is a "farmers market" right outside the apartment that is super convenient for any fruits or groceries. You definitely feel like you are absorbing the local flavor while you live in Pierre's apartment.
The apartment itself was very cozy and the bed was comfortable. The AC worked perfectly and cooled down the room quickly whenever we returned. The apt was also located in a very quiet neighborhood and we got great quality sleep. It also has all the basic necessities like fridge, plates, silverware, towels, shampoo etc. We did not have to buy anything extra to stay here.
Sometimes we had some issues getting a stable water temperature in the shower, but maybe we are just special :p. The ground was also a little dusty but overall things were pretty clean in the apartment. Be prepared for the hike up the stairs everyday as well!
HOST AND OVERALL
Pierre was very flexible and great at communicating with key pick up and drop off. His apartment is very fairly priced for the quality of location and furnishings.
Pierre's apartment looks exactly like the pictures. The location is super convenient and in a nice quiet neighborhood. At the same time it's just a few small blocks away from great food! The original Din Tai Fung is just across Xin Yi. Don't go during the hours of 11:00-2:30. This is when the tour groups go. There is Yongkang street right next to it which is filled with great eats: Smoothie House's shaved ice, green onion pancake street vendor, and Tu Hsiao Yeh's dan dan noodles and milkfish with lime are must eats! It's also conveniently located next to Dongmen station on the red line.
There isn't an elevator to this small building. However, Pierre's friend who met us at the station helped me carry my bag upstairs. It was a very pleasant stay and we would definitely come back!
My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights in the Dongmen area apartment. It is small but comfortable. We really liked the area, the morning market around the corner and the easy access to the MRT for all our day time adventures.
