Noise level: If sleep quality is important to you, then you will enjoy staying at my apartment. it is incredibly quiet.
Location: TWO MINUTE walk from Jian Nan metro station, countless famous restos, miramar mall, riverside park, convenience stores, golf driving range etc. the tourist information center (miramar mall, ground floor) is a 4 to 5-minute walk from my apartment. the area is very convenient, yet really quiet at night, 20 mins by mrt to taipei 101, 8-10 mins by mrt to Zhongshiao Fuxing metro station (downtown), 10 mins by free shuttle bus from miramar mall to shilin night market, 20 mins by taxi to Yangming Shan + hot springs, 5-7 minutes by taxi to the national palace museum and martyr's shrine.
Some reasons to consider my place instead of the places close to Taipei 101:
Some of the most popular tourist attractions are actually very far from the taipei 101 area. these places include shilin night market, which is a free shuttle bus ride away from miramar mall. the martyr's shrine (no mrt station) is a 5-7 minute taxi ride away. the national palace museum (no mrt station) is also a 5-7 minute taxi ride away. Yangming Shan national park (where i work) and all the hot springs (no mrt station) can also be reached within 20 minutes by taxi. you can also opt to take public buses to those place i have mentioned.
Downtown is too busy and crowded. taking the mrt or driving during rush hour can take its toll. on the one hand, my area is more "chill" and relaxing. on the other hand, it is still only a 10 min mrt ride to downtown.
because it is a relatively newly developed residential neighborhood, it is much quieter. traffic is less horrendous. there is more urban planning. the streets are lined with trees. you still enjoy the modern conveniences of having a shopping mall, supermarket, convenience stores, upmarket and local restos etc.
Security: floor and main entrance accessible only to resident, need key card to use elevator; doorman available from 7AM to 5PM.
Facilities/amenities: elevator, free access to and use of washing machine, dryer, bathtub, wifi, conference room, fitness center, roof deck area, kitchenette, fridge, closet space...
Room and cleanliness: professionally cleaned once every two weeks, no pets, one queen-size bed and one sofa bed, high ceiling (3.6 meters)
Directions to taipei 101: 15 min taxi ride or 8 metro stations away (only 1 transfer from brown line to blue line); b) directions to shilin night market: 15 min taxi ride or free shuttle bus leaving miramar mall every 30 minutes from 10AM-9PM; c) directions to national palace museum: 7-10 min taxi ride; d) directions to downtown (zhongxiao east road shopping area:) five MRT stations (no need to transfer); e) leave a message if u need directions to other tourist attractions in taipei
Directions to and from Taoyuan airport: At Taoyuan airport, look for the area that says shuttle bus. Just follow the sign. Then tell the lady at the counter that you want to a bus that takes you to songshan airport mrt station. take that shuttle bus and get off at songshan airport mrt station. If he/she does not understand you, show print and show her this message: 我要搭往松山機場捷運站的客運。哪一台是到松山機場捷運站的客運？
Then from songshan airport station, take the MRT to Jian Nan Road 劍南路 Station on the Brown line.
Exit the station via Exit 2. Escalators for Exit 2 only go up, so it's a good idea to take the lift/elevator instead. Take the lift/elevator to the lobby. It's hidden in a corner. Once you go through the turnstile, make a right and go to the corner. U will see the lift there.
Once you have reached the lobby, you will see a yellow and gray building adorned with rose petal designs. the building has the words "wedding house" on the top right corner. walk towards that building.
behind the building of wedding house is another pink/orange building. between these two buildings is the entrance to the car park. the car park is in between two gargoyles.
the street where my building is located is right between these two gargoyles. go down that street and look for the building that says 41. it should be on your right.
If I can pick you up, then just meet me at Exit 2 of the metro station. Be sure to call me when you are 2-3 stations away from Jian Nan 劍南 Station.
to help u further, i have listed some landmarks that should be helpful if u want to walk to my building from jiannan metro station:
landmark 1: jiannan metro station exit two
landmark 2: jiannan metro station exit two lobby
landmark 3: wedding house (a huge yellow and gray building right across the metro station) (it looks like a hotel)
landmark 4: taipei lian guan building (an orange and pink building that is also hard to miss)
landmark 5: 2 gargoyles right in front of the car park entrance to taipei lian guan building (refer to landmark 4)
landmark 6: when u see the 2 gargoyles, turn right and go straight. that is where my building is.
landmark 7: look for building 41

Lovely small appartement in a calm neibourhood. The host is very friendly ans i totally recommend him.
I had an excellent stay with Jojo. He went out of way to try to make my visit to Taipei memorable. He is very well organized. A few weeks before I arrived, he emailed me instructions to get to his place and tips on getting around in Taipei. His instructions were clear and he was always available to answer any questions I had while I was in town. His place is clean, quiet and very comfortable . He promised me that he would replace his soft mattress with a firmer more comfortable mattress before I arrived and he did. I was so pleased to have restful nights after long and hectic days of sightseeing. And yes he is literally 2 mins from the MRT(subway).
It was great opportunity to stay in Jojo lovely apartment, very clean and well organized in same time very close to MRT station and Mirmar shopping center, the 2 watchman are very friendly & helpful.
Taiwanese are very friendly and intelligent people, the country so beautiful and clean, the transportation system is very good.
Jojo: thank you very much.
Great location and a cosy stay! the free shuttle to Shilin from Miramar mall is a bonus!
I have had a really good time here. Firstly, the very convenience accessibility is unbelievable. It was exactly two minutes walk from the MRT station. However, the environment is quite and clean. Just another two minutes walk to the nearby large shopping mall. Secondly, about the room, the room size is not large but was already big enough for two people, we are very happy to see an open kitchen and all the utensils are ready for use. Lastly, I found that staying here is happy as you can find all you need like an umbrella when you find that you've forgotten to bring one and an i phone charger found there which made me felt that even better than staying in the hotel!
Great location, great landlord!!
I love Jojo's apartment. It is very clean and cozy, plus, the mrt station is literary just around the corner. Oh, and the best thing is, Jojo prepared some fruits and snacks in the apartment the first day you arrive. Such a thoughtful guy. Thank you Jojo, you made my Taipei trip that much better. I will definitely stay at Jojo's apartment again on my next visit. :)
JoJo Tang was great. The apt was convenient and close to the train station. Near the supermarket and the mall. The hotpot restaurant JOJO recommend was delicious. Everything was perfect. Jojo gives good recommendation.
Donna and I tremendously wnjoyed our stay at Jojo's apartment. He was only able to meet uson our last day but he always checks us up via text. His doorman Mr. Huang was a great guy And he recommended us an authentic Taiwanese breakfast place 10mins. from the apartment on our first day in Taipei. The apartment itself was like home with the super soft bed and Donna always soaks herself in the bathtub every day. It's a great place to come home to after our long walks. the Taiwan Eye is really close by, the shuttle to Shilin Market, and the MRT. Taipei was such a great city And the food was great and the people were so kind and friendly and we felt so welcomed. I think our trip would not have been as fun if we stayed in a hotel. Thank you so much Jojo! =)
Jojo was such a great host! Although there was some mess up in the reservation process, Jojo went all out in helping us settle this. He also picked us up from our hotel before we went over to his place. He was always available to answer to our queries, helping us as much as he can. His place was small but sufficient, filled with all necessary equipments for us to use. It is very close to the MRT station and with Miramar and Carrefour nearby definitely helps greatly!
