Host is EXTREMELY friendly when ask her for some information before our stay. Upon arrival when I am looking for the letter box as she mention to collect the keys, we saw her sitting at the couch using her hand phone instead of helping me.
I am sorry you had bad experience with someone but that was not me because I have been traveling in central America since December last year. You probably saw someone in my studio and assumed it was me. That is my helper who cleans the apartment only. She doesn't speak English. I sent you an email to check on how things are with you and you never replied. I didn't know you had such misunderstanding until I saw the review.
Very nice experience
We stayed ad Chienchien's studio during the winter for 3 days and it's been a great Taiwan trip for us, especially since it's our first trip to that country. Her studio's really clean and neat & has sufficient necessities (humidifier's really helpful for drying our clothes). We didn't realize how close it was to the Ximending shopping district (just 3 minutes walk!) since we came in from the other route. The close distance to the station's really convenient too! but her studio remains quiet at night which was great for us. Although we didn't manage to meet her, she replied our questions promptly & even extended the checkout time since our flight's at night. It's been a great trip & we'd definitely come and visit Taipei-Taiwan again! Thank you for having us in your studio! :)
Very good location. And I like the shower of the flat. It made me really feel relax. Also the room is wide enough for our big luggages.
Got abit confused where the key was at first to the door, but it was very convenient and easy to find from the Subway! And it is really 1min to the heart of Ximending! My partner and I really love the place, it was so neat and clean and even provided enough toiletries for our 5 night stay in December 2013. Washing machine dryer and humidifier was helpful to be used in the winter to dry our clothes. The only downside was the lack of television though. But still, will definitely stay again when I come back to Taiwan! :)
I stayed at Cosy Cot Studios for a total of 5 nights and I love the place. The location is amazing, just 1 minute from Ximending and they is a washing machine and dryer to use! Chien Chien was very helpful when we had complications during our Taiwan trip.
Chien was so nice to us. My wife and I (we always travel together but I'm using this account with far fewer reviews, for now) arrived hours earlier than expected, and left an hour later than we had planned.
Chien was so accomodating and made arrangements for us.
The apartment is neat and clean and SO VERY conveniently located. We would definitely stay here again when we next visit as we love Taipei!
Excellent location. The MRT Ximen station is in 5 mins walk and the main shopping area is in 2 mins. The loft is cozy and clean.
Only problem is the other loft near by is under some kind of decoration, thus there will be some noise on day time.
I recommend to stay here, especially for leisure tourists.
The studio was spectacular! Unbelievable how close it is to the Ximen main shopping area (2 minute walk) at MRT. Very centrally located, huge room with huge windows that let in natural sunlight during the day. Loved my stay here - recommended!
A very clean a lovely apartment. It has a very great location, not far from subway station. I love Chien Chien's apartment.
