Taiwan, Taipei – Karen’s A.P

We found this very cosy, studio apartment via Airbnb. The host had fast and helpful communication and was able to let us check-in early. It was easy to locate the apartment, and simple 300m walk from the Zhongshan Elementary School MRT/Metro Station.

The apartment is small but well set out and was comfortable enough for a week stay. The main bed is quite firm and the fold out couch/bed is a medium firmness.

The apartment doesn’t get much natural light but there is lots of lighting. There is also a small 2-seater couch, TV, stand up fan, air-conditioning unit, large refrigerator/freezer, large wardrobe and Wi-Fi was good. There were toiletries provided as well as a kettle and cups.Karen's A.P_Taipei_TaiwanThe separate bathroom had bath with wall mounted shower head, toilet and large vanity. Water pressure was good, water temperature was a little temperamental.Karen's A.P_Taipei_Taiwan_1There was a washing machine available on the small balcony with access through a separate door in the hallway. Plenty of coat hangers to dry clothes.

Location is great, many 7/11’s, Family Marts, a supermarket and eating options nearby. Shuangcheng Street has so many options for tasty things to eat. Close to MRT /Metro station.

Distant to:

  • Shuangcheng Street Market – 240m
  • Zhongshan Elementary School MRT/Metro Station – 300m

Easy to get around the city with the MRT/metro, efficient and well priced, especially if using the Taiwan ‘EasyCard’ or ‘iPASS’ card travel cards.

Price = $59.63 NZD per night (included Airbnb service fees)
