2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed in their family suite good for five persons. They offer 24hrs free coffee, tea and snacks. The hotel is clean and located in the Ximending area, walking distance to Ximen station. We were happy with the friendly service received from Emma. All the staff are friendly in spite of limited English.

The hotel room is very spacious and the receptionists were helpful but what I really love about the hotel is its accessibility. It is located within the heart of ximending. The ximen station is about 300 meters away from the hotel. There are numerous restaurants and shops around the area. The famous Modern Toilet Restaurant is a few blocks away and the Red House Theater is a few steps away. I highly recommend this hotel.

We were on a holiday here in Dec 2017. Stayed a total of 3 nites here in Rainbow Hotel after our 1st 3 nites stayed in Hotel Flora over another location. Location is right in the middle of XiMenTing. Yes, right in the Middle! Short walk fr the train station. Day view n nite view is very different. Food, crowds, shopping, ambient, great. Hotel itself is a small type. Not those huge n establish corporate. Lobby is small n compact, clean though. Dining hall n biz centre is on upper flr. Looks like they jus renovate e dining n biz area. Breakfast fr the hitel is a simple fare. More like eat n go. Don't expect too much. Our room is on high flr. No view, windows lookinhmg on a contruction building. So forget abt the view pls. Room was a upgrade to family room, just renovated. Clean n decent n quite spacious. Beds are clean n cosy. Air con is cool. Toilet is proper equip n bright. Overall. I will return back to Rainbow Hotel for location n convenience n amenities. A pleasant stay...

Our second time to stay in Rainbow Hotel and it never fails us. Now with our toddler in tow it still a home away from home. Hotel is perfectly located at the heart of ximending surrounded and close to restos, shops, night market, subway and other tourist must visits. Our accomodation came with a free breakfast and snacks. Breakfast was simple, it maybe taiwan's usual breakfast. Our room was always cleaned whenever we left and had fresh towels and was always in order whenever we came back. Thanks to Wendy for her hospitality and also to other staff who always had a warm smile. Thanks too for the lady staff who gave some cake for my toddler. Xie xie! See you next time!

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.
