Happy New Year! have you plan any of your trip in 2017 yet? I’m still Floating in space after a long holiday!! Anyways, as a new year start, my trips are fully filled in the upcoming year before June! so looking forward to it!!
So, let’s start the first post of 2017, I would like to date back a review of my last business trip since Oct in Taipei. As said it was a business trip however I went there 2 days in advance to wander around and look for some great stuff to share with you. So let’s start from where I stay!
I used to look for some decent hotel which won’t cost much so I could save my pocket for shopping and food. Anyways, here is one of the highly recommend hotel – Mai Hotel. It is located in Zhongshan district with a wide variety of food and spa nearby. It takes only 5 mins walk to Zhongshan station and 20 mins walk to Ningxia Night market. It just located perfectly and the most important is not pricey. Tt cost less than HK$690 / night (USD $90). So let’s see why I think this is a 5 star recommendation if you are planning on a budget trip to Taiwan!
It is very simple yet stylish. I can’t even think of a word to describe as it looks very clean. Not much decoration except the stylish birdy sculpture next to the escalator. The staff are very nice while you checked in. They do give you advice on what is nearby and the way to the nearest station. They do can speak well English but also perfect Japanese! as I heard a few of them do so. There are quite lots of Japanese tourist in this hotel.
When I booked this hotel, I was addicted to the transparent wardrobe. Also in love with the total white of the room. The bed is so comfort and the pillow as well. Love the design on the wall “Share your Dreams” and I was thinking how interesting if I could really share my dreams? The quote would be different from another room! So see what quote they pick for you.
Oh! forgot to tell you that every time I booked a hotel, I love to choose those which have bath tube, so Mai hotel do have and the bathroom is huge! Besides they do have all the necessities you need even the bath salt! I also attached the facilities they have. Highly recommend this hotel if you want to choose a convenient, stylish and economy hotel.
