About This Listing
Homey apartment is a relaxing apartment close to Taipei 101. The apartment provides you a comfortable environment to relax after a day of travelling and/or sightseeing. The maximum guests for this apartment is 3 people with 1 big bed and 1 single sofa bed.
Homey apartment is centrally located in downtown Taipei on Nanjing East Road, one of the city's main arteries with good connections to everything Taipei has to offer for both tourists and business purposes.
Public transportation stops right in front of the building, with lines going to various touristic hotspots in the city, including Tapei Main Railway Station, MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station, MRT Taipei City Hall Station, Nangang TWTC, restaurants, convenient stores, ATM and the famous Raohe Street Night Market are within walking distance. Also, the shopping area (東區) and the most popular bars and clubs (Taipei 101 area) are nearby as well. 24hrs security service and cameras ensures your belongings are safe at all time.
Homey apartment is the perfect place to stay if you want to fully focus on enjoying Taipei's day- and nightlife! Nevertheless, it is also the best choice for business purpose guests because it's easy to commute to all major business districts in Taipei and Taipei 101 area, and it is quiet at nights to relax after a day of business.

Going location, 5min walk to nearest Station. Very near to Rao He night market
This is my third stay with prue. super comfortable with high security. The place was clean and large enough for 3 pax. We used the washing machine and dryer with no problems. We went to the nearby market for breakfast and it was good! Prue provides very clear and accurate travel instructions for travel to and from the apartmentl, so travelling is a breeze from touch down. We used the new green MRT line to xi men and it was very convenient and quick! We also made trips to taoyuan and shi fen/pingxi, and travel to the rail station from prue's place is really convenient. Thanks for the great stay again !
Prue is an extremely nice host!
Her beautiful apartment is quite comfy and has all the amenities you'd need in Taiwan: Comfy bed, nice warm tub, shampoo/soap, towels, washing machine, dryer, fridge, power extension cables, a nice TV with HDMI and USB input and even a kettle.
The place is also easy to get to, just state "Nanjing East Road Section 5 near the bridge" to *any* cab driver, and they will know how to get there. It's almost less than 100NTD to anywhere of interest, and there's loads of food nearby too. There're also a large number 24/7 7-11's and FamilyMarts around the place too.
We checked in late at night, and the security guard of the building was totally cool with us and very helpful too!
bed/bedding was very comfortable and can easily sleep 2, did not use the sofa bed.
I found the TV, fridge, hot water boiler to be particularly useful. Internet is very fast (over 100mbps when directly connected).
AC works well,
washer and dryer very convenient
very secure, building has doorman and unit requires both a key and additional key fob, I left my clothes in the dryer overnight and nobody stole it
Negative: might be out of the host's control, but the smell of smoke when I enter the shared hallway leads to me to believe people smoke in the hallway (it's a small hallway so the smell is quite concentrated), although this doesn't affect the air quality in the room
Location: Very very underrated location! I go to Taipei at least once a year, and trust when I say that this is one of the more convenient locations. Contrary to what other reviewers are saying about proximity to MRT stations, this apartment definitely is within walking distance as of Nov 15. Taipei just opened its latest Songshan MRT line on November 15, 2014 that spans across Nanjing E. Road (where the apartment is located). From there you can reach just about any major destination in Taipei!
It's within walking distance to a very major night market (RaoHe St) malls and department stores (Living Mall/Jin Hua Cheng and Breeze Nanjing, I go for the food courts) and definitely walkable, albeit a longer walk to both Xin Yi District and Zhongxiao E. Road Sec 4.
good boba shops and all kind of restaurants nearby if you walk West on Nanjing E Road
very close proximity to the most famous pineapple cake brand, Chia Te
Communication: Host was responsive and flexible to changes made to reservation
Nice room. Very clean and convenient. Great for a couple or 3 people the most.
The room is nice as shown in the photos. The neighborhood is convenient. You can walk to McDonald's, KFC, or Subway in 10 minutes along Nanjing East Road. You can also go to the night market in 5 minutes of walk. The location is also near the new subway station.
Few drawbacks - the TV remote does not change channels too well, it only goes in one direction. Few TV channels have back reception. The item that bothers me a little bit is the bath tube. I take shower, not bath. So, I like to have a shower stall instead of standing up inside the bath tube.
The host is nice and let me stayed 2 hours beyond the check out time.
Overall, it is a nice experience.

About the Host, Prue
Hello everyone! I'm a fellow alumni of WSU in the US. My husband is Dutch living in the Netherlands, and so I travel time to time between Europe and Asia. I stayed in Italy via Airbnb in Fall 2011 with my sister for the very first time. It was a wonderful experience that has inspired me to do the same on Airbnb in Taiwan as well. I hope by doing so, I'd get to show you more of the beauty of Taiwan, and to meet more people around the world at the same time!
In addition to my own travel experiences, I tend to let my guests feel as comfortable as home. I appreciate all my guests for staying at my apartments, and choosing Taiwan as their travel destination. Welcome to Formosa!
