Hotel Puri (Ximen Branch)

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location just a few steps from Chengdu Road. Easy to find once we got off at Ximen MRT, about a 5-8 minute walk. We were upgraded to a three bedroom room with a window. The shower was a decent size but when the sliding door was closed the toilet space is small. We found that this was not an issue with us though but for bigger Westerners this could be easily worked around by leaving the sliding door open since the bathroom and bedroom are separated by a curtain. Overall, I did not find it too noisy although sometimes I could hear the occupants of the neighbouring room; perhaps be aware that your conversation could be heard by others. Rooms were generally quite clean but the carpets look a bit worn and stained in the common areas. It may not look as polished as high-end hotels but looks are not everything. I found this a good hotel to stay in for three nights. Customer service was good and staff can speak English. Plenty of shops in the area and you will not be struggling to find somewhere to eat. Ximengding District is a lively area to stay in and Hotel Puri Ximen is right in the heart of everything. Baggage storage available.

If you don’t mind that the room is too small and love shopping You should stay here because the hotel is in Ximending that you can shopping until midnight near MRT and the staffs are very nice. Clean room and good value for money.

You can never go wrong with Hotel Puri if you want the best location and affordable rate in Ximen. We were also surprised that they gave us a complimentary room upgrade upon check-in. Thank you! :) We tried the self service laundry, however the dryer did not work well. After waiting for 30 mins, our clothes were still wet. We also noticed that their male staffs at he reception at night are quite inattentive to guest who would come in and out of the hotel. Nonetheless, we were satisfied and pleased with our stay as its very convenient to go back and forth of the hotel any time of the day.

The hotel was easy to find. It’s about 150m from the Ximen MRT exit 6. There’s 711 and shops and restaurants nearby. The room was clean and has everything we needed. The staff were friendly. No breakfast but there’s a coffee machine at the lobby. Would definitely recommend.

Its very convenience location after out Ximending station with about 5mins walk, see the Watson, walk forward more to find a small lane that led to the hotel. Its quite hard to spot the sign but patience to find the way. The room was carpeted at bed side, tiles at bathroom at another side. Its was rather small that fit 1or2 pax plus luggages. The bathroom separate toilet & standing shower. I quite uneasy as toilet really small. In the room, u can hear sounds if next door is loud, means the walls really thin that can hear next doors. The good is after a tiring shops at Ximending, u can reach hotel fast & when out from the station by mins walk.

I've stayed with Hotel Puri in my last 3 visits to Taipei. The Good: Hotel Puri enjoys the advantage of geographical location - it is a 5 minutes walk to Ximen station, with 7-11 and a huuuuge Watsons outlet adjacent to it. The staff are also generally courteous. The Bad: The rooms severely lack soundproofing - I could hear a cough from the next room. In my most recent visit, a large group of middle-aged tourists enjoyed having nightly conversation along the corridor and it kept me awake till late. If you're a heavy-sleeper, this place would be perfect for the price and location it offers.

The hotel located in the perfect location only 2 minutes walk from Ximen Station Exit 6 (this exit is also the main exit to reach the Ximen main street). You can walk through the 7/11 next to H&M and the hotel will be on the right side of you sight. The staffs are all nice and willing to help, if you reach the hotel before the check-in time you can keep your luggages there first and after the stay you can also keep the luggage with them for 7 days. They also have free internet sim provide!. The room is small but look very nice and clean. If your luggage is not too big it should be okay. This place is one of the most recommended hotel for Ximending area to me.

This hotel was a great value. The staff were friendly, the location is perfect, the room had everything we needed, and all the little things were great — laundry room, free tea in the morning, umbrellas to borrow, etc. Will definitely stay here next time.

Puri hotel is a mid range hotel. It is close to ximending station. Just behind 7-11 which is very easy to find. The receptionist does not smile but she is quite polite. Checked in and found out we have gotten the room with bathtub. One of the bad point is that the water temperature is very hard to adjust. It was either too hot or too cold. There is no breakfast provided but you can always buy food downstairs. Will definitely stay here again.

Personally we regard Puri Hotel as a medium range hotel. Neither a budget hotel nor luxurious hotel. It is located at the heart of Ximending (XMD) where you can shop almost anything. Less than a min walk to XMD shopping streets. I uploaded some photos of the famous stalls. Refer to my feedbacks for those famous stalls. Their email response is pretty prompt. We preordered some food online and asked them to receive on behalf. They willingly helped to do so. We requested for a cake for my mother birthday. They bought a slice of cake from a Cafe 'cos they have have a restaurant or expertise to make one small whole cake. We were expecting one. No breakfast provided as there is no hotel restaurant. Neither do they provide meal vouchers to dine at nearby restaurants. Hotel rooms may not be well sound-proof so you may still hear people talking when walking pass your room. Overall, I give a 4 stars for its location and services.
