Thank you and hope you have a pleasant journey in Taiwan :)
Stacey was great! Her English is wonderful! The place overall was perfect for our needs. If you have a tradeshow at the nangang exhibition center the taipeker is a great setup. Just a short 20 minute commute from the nearby MRT.
Make sure to get more clear instructions on how to work the washer if you are a foreigner.
Glad to have stayed! We will be back for our next tradeshow!
An enjoyable & pleasant stay. clean & pack with all the necessities. wonderful hospitality & good communication. step by step instructions on the location & picking up.
The place is near to Ximen Station. The apartment is supply with all the bath necessity. It will be better to meet up at Ximen Station exit 1 as there are too many passengers exiting from exit 6.
Ximen is similar to Harajuku in Tokyo, a youth orientated shopping area. We enjoyed staying here because of the proximity to restaurants and shops keeping open until late hours. The apartment was small, yet comfortable, clean and with good wifi. We met up with Stacy who was a great host giving us all the practical details, and giving us advice about highligts, and even following us to a restaurant on arrival. I'd definately stay here again next time I'm in Taipei.
Stacy met us outside of Exit 6 of Ximen Station and walked us to the apartment less than 5 minutes away. The location of this apartment is perfect since it is so close to Ximending and Ximen Station.
Stacy was great at replying to all my questions before the trip and during the trip. She helped exchange money for us, cleared the apartment of a strong mothball smell, and booked us a ride to the airport (cheaper than a taxi ride).
However, there were a few downsides to staying here.
1. As stated in other reviews, we found small cockroaches everyday in the apartment, dead and alive. We would often have to step on them to kill them and were paranoid of bugs getting into our luggage.
2. The wifi is very slow when the two of us were on it. If only one person is on wifi, it works better.
3. We ran out of toilet paper on the last day and there weren't any extra in the cabinets. Thankfully we had extra tissue with us but this could have become a problem if one of us had to run to the store to buy some while the other waited on the toilet.
Given the pros and cons, I would not stay here next time and would instead find an accommodation that is cleaner around Ximending.
My friends and I stayed in Taipei for a little over two weeks. Ximending is the heart of Taipei and a great convenient area to stay in. The apt was a short walk from food, shopping and transit. However, the area is quite old and crowded. Stacy was a nice host. She helped us a lot to get started. Though, She couldn't solve the pest problem in this apt. This apt was quite old and dirty. The smell was quite disturbing. Neighbors were weird and nosy. Cockroaches was the biggest problem for our stay. They multiply faster than you can kill. We bought many things to reduce the population and sealed all our belongings to avoid bringing them home. It was Christmas and new years so it was difficult to find a place to move by the end. With no choice we stayed but having to spend so much more on protecting our things such as more laundry, pesticides, cockroaches traps and more. Note,they don't die unless you step on them. Pesticides don't work! Would consider her other properties next time. Will definitely not stay in this one again. Not worth the savings. Overall, enjoyed Ximending!
My stay in Stacy's apartment was very pleasant. Travelling as a group of three girls, safety was a major concern for my friends and I. When we arrived, we were very happy to find a security guard at the lobby of the apartment complex. The apartment itself was comfortable, spacious and well equipped; the washer and dryer was particularly useful, as well as the travel guide books. It was also very tidy and clean, aside from the occasional bug or two. The location of the apartment was exceptional. Ximen station was just a couple of minutes away by foot, as well as the famous (email hidden)ly area filled with restaurants, trendy stores and delicious street vendor foods. The only downside to the apartment was that the internet was extremely slow - using (website hidden) or FaceTime was almost impossible.
Apart from that, we were very satisfied with our stay in Taiwan. Stacy was an extremely helpful host and we would definitely recommend this apartment for friends travelling in small groups.
its really cozy and nice lil flat
I strongly recommend this apartment to those who don't want to bring much apparel during travelling as the washing machine was so useful. The place was clean and tidy but it is only suitable for couple and small family. Stacy was nice to talk and friendly. She had been waiting in front of the apartment when I reached there by cab. The check in and check out procedures were fast and simple. Stacy even let us check out at 3:00pm that day. The location was strategic and nearby the MRT station. The annoying thing was to classify the rubbish to recycle or non-recycle. The management won't collect the rubbish if you don't do it properly. Overall, I will definitely stay here again during my next holiday in Taipei. Thanks Stacy!
