The Experience

POSHPACKER HOTEL

 Check-in

Checking-in was a breeze and although I love this Hotel for so many reasons, (for sure when I go back to Taipei, I’ll stay here again) still there’s one pet peeve that I’ll complain about and that is their check-in time which is set at 4PM. For me, it’s a little late so I hope they will change it to 2pm or 3pm at least. But in fairness to them, they allow me to check-in early which is so nice and I truly appreciate it.

 The Room

POSHPACKER HOTEL

Single Room with Window

Although the room is quite small (what can you expect in a single room?) yet, its functional and have enough space for you to move freely with your baggage. The room is also equipped with basic amenities that you can find in a 3-star hotels like Free Wi-Fi internet, Electronic key card, Universal Sockets, Clean sheet, duvet & towels, Flat TV, Safe Box , Complimentary Water (Which you can refill in the lounge, since there’s a water dispenser there dispensing cold and hot water), Mini-Refrigerator and of course individual Air Condition.

The Bed is Super Comfy. But I just hope they provide two pillows at least.

Headset is provided in case you want to watch TV it wont bother the next room for noise.

Room Options

I chosed a single room in an all female floor with window, this is pricier compared to a budget room without a window. If you travel in pairs or in groups then you can get a twin room or the triple room which can cater up to 3 person at an affordable rates. But be wary as all of these room do share bathroom – Spa Style Shared Bathroom. To check their current rates Click Here .

It’s also nice that you get to have Japanese Modern Washlet. If you’re germophobe bring your own disposable/flushable toilet seat cover.

 The Extras

The place is similar to Modern Inn in Korea and Japan where you have lots of extra amenities which you also share with other guest. Coin operated laundromat and Common room where you can eat and heat your takeaways and get free hot water. .

 The Location

POSHPACKER HOTEL

There are so many reason why I like Poshpacker Hotel but for the most part it’s the location.  The hotel is perfectly situated between Taipei Main Station and Ximending which can make your night a lot more fun. And since its centrally located there’s a lot of people and happenings in the area. It is also very safe to walk a night. I actually travel solo this time and I pretty much stay out until 10pm. One more thing if you have a thing for camera, the famous camera street is within reach.
