Under 5 min. walk to Yong Kang Jie, famous restaurant street in Taipei. Many, MANY restaurants around, of all different kinds. Local, western, fine dining, quick and surprisingly delicious fast food. You can read my guidebook and see my recommendations in the area.
The famous, Din Tai Fung restaurant is only a 5 minute walk away
10 minutes bus to Taipei 101

Very close to 7-11. Open 24 hours, very convenient for groceries and cheap snack. Has everything you need from food, drinks, to toiletries.
Japanese fast food restaurant next door too. Opened 24 hours and tastes much better than McDonald's!
While the location is bustling, the apartment itself is super quiet, because it is located in a small alley outside of traffic. The bedroom is 15m2, with a HUGE BED(180*200cm). I provide high quality mattress for extra guests.

If you feel like working out, there is a cheap and modern sport center, only 5 minutes by bus, with a Gym (1.5$/h), swimming pool, indor basketball....and even archery!
★ Taoyuan International Airport is the main airport for Taipei. A shuttle bus from the airport takes approximately 50 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).
★ I can organize an airport pick up for 1200 TWD too (40 USD, trip lasts about 40 minutes).
If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask and i look forward to meeting you!
Interaction with Guests
I live only one block away so I can always tend to your needs.
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.

Host responded very quickly. The room was nice and clean. Overall a great place to stay!
Good apartment. The bed is huge/located well. As other reviews note, the room is not as large as it looks, but that doesn't really matter unless you plan on having more than 2 people/entertaining. It doesn't seem like anyone actually lives here since some things are really dusty and there was no soap/toilet paper. Apart from minor inconveniences, I'd still suggest this place
The details of the ad were all correct. The room isn't as big as it looks in the picture, but it's still a great size considering the great location. In Taiwan, it's normal to take off one's shoes before entering an apartment, but at this place the rule is no shoes in the *building*! That said, the stairs were very clean.
There were two big problems that ruined my stay—the air conditioner and the laundry area. Taiwan is a very hot, very humid semi-tropical island and A/C is crucial. The A/C in the room was technically functional but it was very weak, weaker than any in anyplace I lived in my 7 years in Taiwan. It was bad enough that I had to buy a fan for the room myself. The other issue was laundry. The laundry area was on the roof. There was a washer, but no drier (sadly this is fairly common in Taiwan). I put my clothes in the wash, then later came back to dry them. When I returned to pick them up, I opened the door and stepped into something like super-glue that someone had placed on the floor. It was full of dead bugs and even a dead gecko. I don't know the health effects of stepping into it, but it was utterly disgusting, and right at the entrance with no sign or warning.

With just the A/C issue, I'd have tried to be more tolerant. After all the fan was cheap. But this was just too extreme, to step into a thing full of glue and dead bugs in a building where we had to go barefoot.
Location is near the mrt station but might be abit quiet at night. Near yongkang street which is famous for their food. The room size is just nice for two person. However the bed seems to be abit dusty.
I had a great experience staying here. The rules of the house were plainly laid out and easy to follow. The information he provided helped me a lot in getting to the place. I never met Pierre but his friend Tim was a great help and friendly. A great first AirBnB experience.
