It was easy to find the place, to connect with Koen it worked right away.
Everything was arranged accordingly and it was a nice welcome.
I can recommend the place, location is good and people are very friendly.
Thanks Koen for everything and also may thanks to Tom
Thanks Walter! It was great to have you at our place!! Great guest!!
Had a great time at koen's place. Place is exactly as described - clean, big and perfectly located. We only met koen and Tom for an hour or so but they were easy to talk to and they were able to suggest some itineraries for us to do. They even let us leave our big backpack there for a couple of days. Only complaint was that the place was not available for longer. Thanks for the good times!
Our experience with Koen and Tom was wonderful! The place looks exactly like the pictures and it's really spacious. The living room, kitchen, and bathroom were clean, and we had access to the fridge and wifi, which was great. The bedroom was a perfect size for me and my boyfriend. The neighborhood was a bunch of alleyways, but I never felt unsafe. The apartment also has a doorman, which made me feel a lot better. The apartment literally is 5min from Taipei 101 and the Taipei 101 MTR station on the red line. Couldn't have asked for a more convenient location! Other perks in the area: a couple convenience stores, a cute little market at an old military barracks, a free-to-use basketball court, and Starbucks. We also discovered a nice bar near Taipei 101 called Marquee, definitely check it out! As for our hosts, Koen and Tom were very accommodating with check-in and check-out times, considering they're at work during the week. They also let us use a couple of their MTR cards which were registered with their phone numbers so we could rent YouBikes (public bike system). They had a lot of books about Taipei and different things to do and see. We also grabbed dinner with them one night because they are really cool and fun to talk to! :) I'd definitely recommend staying here if you want to experience the nightlife because of the location, and as for Koen and Tom, they provide such a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Thanks again, guys!!
The apartment is close to Taipei 101 and the YouBike station. A lot of food and restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a 7-11 and 2 Family Marts around the block for convenience. Clear instructions with graphs were provided to arrive from the airport and/or the main train station. Overall, the host is friendly and the apartment is clean.
- Minimalistic room, with just enough space for a mattress on the floor, a couple luggages and a fan.
- When we signed up for the room, air-conditioning was listed as an included amenity; however, only the hosts' rooms and the living room has AC units. Our room only had a fan, leaving the room constantly hot and humid. When we showed the hosts the included amenities and asked to compromise by sleeping in the living room for AC, he said it was a mistake and immediately changed the listing, but ignored our request and made no adjustment for our living conditions. Also, although listed as an amenity, there is no doorman for the apartment. Since we were essentially cheated into paying for a non-AC room by false advertisement, I would not recommend this unit to future renters.
The place is in a prime location, a short walk away from Taipei 101! Metro, bike rental, laundry, cafes, 7-Eleven and similar convenience stores are all within walking distance.
Tom and Koen are very nice and accommodating hosts, very knowledgeable about the area and the city. Communication with them was always prompt. They were even able to take me in for an early arrival one day ahead of the booking with very short notice with no problem at all. I did not get to interact much with them but they always made sure everything was ok, and made sure to make themselves available in case I needed anything during my stay. They can also provide you with guides, maps and lots of tips on what to do and see.
Their place is comfortable, a bit reminiscent of college days! The room itself is on the basic side of things (a mattress, linen and space for your belongings), a simple yet comfortable place to crash at night. Truth being told you needn’t much more. If you are in Taipei, you are supposed to be hitting the street pretty much all day long
Overall, it is a good place to stay in Taipei. Thanks for the everything, enjoyed our conversations a lot!
Had an awesome time in Taipei and one of the reasons was Koen's place. We stayed for more than three days in Koen's place and its location is perfect for those who want to see the city. Very close to the subway and the tourist spots. There were a lot of eateries near the area, too. Add to that, the place was cool, clean and well-kept. Koen and Tom are very friendly, they took the time to share tips and tricks on going around the city. Definitely staying there again if we do go back soon!
We had a wonderful stay at Koen's place! It was comfortable and a great location to everywhere we wanted to visit in Taipei! Koen and his roommate were also very kind!
Hi Tom and Koen,
Thank you for your hospitality, I enjoyed my staying at yr home and your kind sharing with Taiwan was very useful and impressed me . I think I have to apologize again for the flooded toilet and causing you a lot of inconvenience. I was so embarrassed because u didn't even blame me but just comfort me. Also U guys were very helpful and thanks again for lifting my very heavy luggage from time to time. You really made me feel like home and I will be grateful for your generosity and kindness. Hope to visit you guys soon and u r always be my guests in HK .
Remarks : Location is excellent, only 3 mins walk to nite market, 5 mins walk from 101 station ( Highly recommended )
Koen came as a stranger and left as a friend. He is a really easy going person with a beautiful mind. What a great guest!
Koen is a nice guy... But Every time we had missed meeting each others at my place! He came at my working time, left at my class time... Hope to really meet u Koen, if has next time!
All the best!
Great and gentle guest!
I highly recommend him to stay your house!
Thanks to Koen for looking after our home for us. Even tho we didn't get chance to meet you in person, we are very grateful.
We hope you enjoyed the stay and had a great experience in Tokyo.
Keep safe and happy holidays.
