Cho Hotel Ximending

Cho Hotel Ximending

 

I love Cho Hotel in Ximending! It’s relatively new. I was searching for directions or blog posts about it but couldn’t find any. I booked it through Booking.com and I’m glad I did.

From Taipei Main Station, we took a Taxi to the hotel. We gave him the address and it was easy to find. There were no signs referring to the hotel except this small one outside the door. I’m glad we concentrated on the number and on the street and we were like this must be it. We went in and asked and it was! πŸ™‚ There’s a Family Mart really close by and also a small grocery store.

This was the small reception. I really like the design. Further down is the roomy elevator. Check in was fast. We were given this postcard like thing where it had 2 post cards, a puzzle, a map and our meal tickets for the rest of our stay. It looks like this..

You might be wondering what the puzzle is for. It’s for this wall..Β They have various drawing tools and stamps on the desk.

There were also plenty of extra toiletries at the reception if you need it.

OUR ROOM AT CHO HOTEL XIMENDING

 

We were so tired, can’t wait to go to our room which was on the top floor.

Our very comfy bed on a platform. It had plenty of room on the other side too for bags and such. I like the windows and the mural. The TV was really nice too and had plenty of English channels.

Our desk/sink which is situated on the right as you enter the room. It had the necessities and also water which was replenished every day if they were empty. They had most of what you need. You can also get extra supplies from the reception desk pictured below.

This was our bathroom which was basic and simple but functional. It had a rain shower! πŸ™‚

BREAKFAST AT CHO HOTEL XIMENDING

 

For breakfast, they give you coupons that are good for TWD 50 each. It is a neighborhood local breakfast place. It’s not pretty so don’t expect much.

They had Chinese and English menus. We tried a variety of food for the 3 days we spent. I had “omelette” which was very different from what I know as omelette on our first day. We had sandwiches on our second day and this is what we had on our third day. The noodles were not good but what my cousin got was pretty good. She also had milk tea and I had orange juice.

We paid about TWD 2,460Β a night. There are cheaper hotels in the area but you also get what you pay for. We were pretty satisfied with what we got. Our hotel is about 3 blocks from the Ximen Metro. There are at least 2 family marts close by and 1 seven-eleven around the corner. There are also good restaurants in the area. Ximending shopping street is about 2 blocks away. The staff were really nice. They even helped us book a few things. We really enjoyed our stay. πŸ™‚

    I’m searching for review on this hotel and I came across your post.

    Is it possible to advice the following:
    1. Safe and security?
    2. Spacious?
    3. Noise level at night?
    4. Lobby is at L1 and there is elevator right? As I’m bringing 2 elderly.
    5. Any idea are we allow to leave our luggage with them for 4-5 days for free? Safe? As we are planning to travel to other city.
    6. Duration to walk to XMD station and XMD area for shopping?
    7. Is the hotel located along main street or quite isolated place?
    8. Sound proof room?

    Thank you.

    • 1. Security. – pretty secure. There is front desk and they are always there 24-7. This is the first thing you see as uou enter the establishment. Then you go up a flight of stairs to the building where the rooms are. You need your key card for the sliding doors to open.
      2. Spacious – not really but sufficient
      3. Noise Level at night – we had no problems in our room. I don’t know about other parts of thr building.
      4. No elevators so this is something to consider plus a few stairs to the main building
      5. We left ours for a few hours, not sure about days. I dont know if they even allow that.
      6. This hotel is not located on XMD per say and it’s a different subway station.
      7. It’s located on a small street along a main road. It’s a busy street. There’s a subway statuon nearby. We tried walking from Ximending. It’s quite far. I think chinese roads are just designed that way, really long blocks.
      8. I don’t think it’s sound proofed

  • Hello! May I know what time did you check in? Because their check in is at 3pm right? Your flight was around 11pm, so I was wondering! Thank you πŸ™‚
