If you're looking for a clean and easy hotel in Ximending, then Diary of Ximen is a good choice.

Upside: hotel has fairly good sized rooms and conveniently located in Ximending. A few blocks away is the Red house in Ximending station where shops and street food can be found. Friendly and attentive staff ready to assist.

Downside: hotel shares the building with 2 other hotels: Muzik and Diary of Taipei located in the other floors. There are only 3 small lifts so you'll have to wait a bit to get a ride. The breakfast spread is likewise almost the same in our 3-day stay.
Rooms didn't come with any window! I specifically asked for a room with windows upon booking but was not told that it's subject to availability due to limited number of rooms with windows. We checked in at night and we were told that they just upgraded our rooms since they ran out of rooms with windows. Stayed at the 11/F and the corridor didn't have windows either. I felt super claustrophobic.

I've booked a family room and it comes in 2 Queen size bed which is good for us and we have no compliants on the overall room condition. This hotel provides all the basics and fundamentals and with the kind of price we pay, I think it is very value for money. The wifi signal is strong too. The hotel offers 24/7 complimentary drinks for the hotel guests to take which is very helpful and its a nice gesture.
The location is perfect too as it is along the main road(not noisy tho) hence you can alight from the cab and conveniently and get your luggages into the building as the hotel is on the 12th floor of the building. The Ximending shopping area is just round the corner and you will walk right into it. Hence, food and shopping is never an issue. The mrt is also only a 2-3mins walk. There are cinemas and nice cafes around the area too. It is an ideal place to stay if you will want to stay in the Ximending area.

* The only thing is that it may be very noisy and disturbing when you have people walking and talking or kids running along the corridor in the morning when they leave the room as the walls are really thin....This can disturb the sleep. The hotel has make the effort to put up signs to ask hotel guests to tune down the noise after 10pm. However, my suggestion is that can request guests to keep volume and noise down at all times along the corridor. :)

Clean and nice room. The bathroom was also clean and good shower head. The location is very convenient. Short walking distance to the Metro. Something to feedback Maybe the hotel keycard instead of 1 can issue another room keycard. It's rather inconvenient with just 1 keycard.

The hotel is accessible and near mrt stations. The room is spacious for my friends. The sheets are clean and the bathroom is roomy enough for girly stuff. The breakfast buffet offers different selections and satisfying enough for a full day of activities. The reception personnel can easily understand english and are very accommodating. The hotel signages are clear. We did not have a hard time looking for our room.

Location - it is located at the heart of Ximending which is the busiest area in Taipei, lots of street performers, food stalls and restaurants, shopping areas. The building is composed of different hotels, the reception is located at the 12th floor and our room is assigned on the 11th floor. It is 3-5 minutes walk to Ximen station of Blue Line Exit 6 which is one station away from Taipei Main Station. you can also walk from main station for about 10-12 minutes. There is a NET boutique clothing store in the same building

Room- it was spacious and very new. It has basic amenities and provide 2 bottles of water daily during room make up. It has good pressure of water( hot and cold working)

Service - all front desk are very accomodating, our flight arrived early morning and we left our luggage and came back at 3pm checkin, same thing with checkout, we left our luggages as our flight was at 2am. They provide complimentary tea, coffee, juices, bread all day to all guests

Breakfast - our booking is not inclusive of breakfast but on our 2nd day, we opted to have one with them for 100NTD. Theyre serving salads, porridge, rice, egg, fries, tofu, noodles, steamed buns,bread and butter ( photos attached)

Wifi - is very good and fast!

Laundry- you can also use their laundry facilities for free!

Value- with its location and room facilities, definitely its worth the price.

Note: most of their rooms doesnt have windows

I will recommend to friends who is visiting Taipei!

It’s those hotels that’s reminiscent of a housing project which prices itself like a hotel which is quite exhorbitant for the type of travel you may want to experience. It’s pricey and though sheets are clean and water is strong, the feeling is off as the walls are thin, the mattress is average and you can actually hear people walking outside your door. Plus the breakfast reminds me of a canteen you may have in school

Ok, now I wish I had read these reviews before booking this place.... it's nothing like what's shown in the pictures and here is my experience... was traveling with my wife and almost two year old. I booked a double room and the picture looked like a decent room but lo and behold when I walked into the room, it literally had a two feet walking space around the bed and then there was the toilet, hardly the picture I signed upto! Anyway, having that surprise and feeling pretty terrible that we have two stay three nights here I went for a quick walk to get some food for the junior leaving my wife and the kid. On my return realized my wife had tried to flush the toilet and it had overflowed!! Upon calling the staff, the guy tells me that in Taipei you are not supposed to flush toilet papers Suppose to bin the used paper... this is all bumpf and I was quick to ask for a refund a get out!! Where credit is due it should be given, although my booking was non refundable they did give me my money back so I was happy with that.... but gosh, pls don't be fooled buy the pics because it is actually a dump!! Not sure how it got the 4 stars!!

Located in the centre of Ximen town, easy excess to train (Ximen), walking distance to nice foods/sightseeing/Carrefour/etc.

Good breakfast, varieties of selection, Taiwan style/cuisine
Clean room with nice temperature during winter (outdoor 4°c)

Efficient & friendly staffs, room service(i get my mineral water within 2 minutes)

Amy are good ambassador with her excellent genuine service. She helps two senior citizen to get into a taxi while taking the staircase from 12th floor to 1st floor(when the lifts is full of guests) Her warm care reflect the image of your Hotel

Thumbs up!

Stayed at the Diary of Ximen Hotel for 2 nights and I must say it's a pretty awesome accommodation for the price. The hotel is located at the heart of Ximending and next to the Ximen MRT, hence accessibility is good. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful and there are coffee mains located at the hotel lobby for their guests too! The roles are clean though small, it's just a good enough fit for us.
So if you are travelling on a budget, Diary of Ximen Hotel is a good choice!

Very good location but rooms are a bit old and a bit worn... I wouldnt complain for the price though.If you are just sleeping like us, it is probably ok but if you intend to spend much time in the room, probably a nicer hotel can be found nearby at a higher cost.
