Rainbow Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here with my family and I have to say that the price is definitely worth! The room was in a very central location, despite the hotel is old, our room seemed new, the beds were soft and the interior was nice. They had free coffee, tea, water and snacks which were replenished everytime we consumed it. I will definitely stay here again.

Unbeatable location-- 3 minutes away from the Ximen MRT station (exit 6) Surrounded by shops and convenience stores as well as restaurants and street food carts at night. Staff are very helpful (they even gave us an umbrella when we checked out as it was raining that time). They're all so polite and accommodating. Only downside is, housekeeping was a bit inconsistent during our 4-night stay. On one of the days they cleaned up, they forgot to replenish the toiletries and beverages/snacks. Even the trash was not taken out. No new towels either. Only the bed was made. Perhaps housekeeping staff's new. Other than this glitch, it was a perfect stay. Quiet and comfy room. Everything was just awesome. Will definitely come back to Taipei and stay in this hotel.

It is true the hotel is old and the breakfast is just edible. But it is located right in the middle of Xi Men Ding. Few minutes walk away from the Metro. We stayed in the newly renovated room on TOP floor hence noise is not an issue. The mattress is a little too old / soft for comfort. But overall, I guessed you get what you paid for. Nothing major to complain or shout about.

We stayed at quad room and the room was clean. The bathroom was renovated and the water shower was strong. Breakfast is served at 3rd floor with minimal choices but there are a lot of stalls just down the street. The hotel is very central in Ximen and close (walking distance) to MRT station. Shopping was just below the hotel. Cleanliness need to be look into when doing make-up room. Overall, we have a pleasant stay.

The location was excellent that you can have everything you need by just going down the street. Restaurants, convenient stores, night market or even street performers everywhere around. MRT was just 3 minutes walk. The room was small and just right for a single traveller like me. But the toilet was not very clean and it was very obvious it was a very old hotel. Network was not working and you need to bring your own network if you choose this hotel.

Was scouting hotels around there. Firstly, always check out their toilets. Unfortunately they wont even let us see their toilet, the first thing said was when they see us walking in was, sorry no toilet. Anyway hotel is so rundown. You wont want to stay there unless you are desperate. Dont spoil your holiday.

If given a room facing the streets. It is very very noisy from morning until midnight. Pricey because of its location. Location top notch. Hotel maintenance is needed. Lots of food and shops just outside the hotel. Taxis and cars not allowed outside the hotel after certain times of the day.

Poor English. Email committed for type of room but denied and argumentative. Ask for name, said "" ...What is ur position... 主任, at least have surname right, reluctantly said Lim / Lee??? If you are right, you should honour and proud of your name and position. Never ever stay here. Horrible experience. There are better hotel...all exit 6 from train station.

Hotel is very old, lacked of maintenance, have a foul smell in the whole hotel, carpet is dirty n dusty seems like carpet had not been shampooed for the past decade. Service staff talk loudly at late night, hotel room interior is old n dirty. Most importantly there's no wifi, hotel staff reason is signal is weak if u want to use wifi had to use at lobby and there's is no seat at the mini lobby. The worse hotel stay ever would not there there ever again. This hotel seriously need upgrade else there won't be any return guest.

The location of this hotel is unbeatable, right at the cross-junction of Ximending. The downside is that noise filters into the room easily, especially noise by street performers. However, most street acts end by 11pm, so plan your sleep schedule properly if you're someone who can't sleep with noise. Alternatively, you can request for a room that faces away from the street. The room was surprisingly lovely for a budget hotel, and the bed was extremely comfortable to sleep on. The room came with all the basic ammenities of a hotel and for the price I paid, it was extremely worth it.
