As a non-speaker of Mandarin I was pleasantly surprised by the English fluency of most of the locals in Taipei. HG (renter) was very helpful and friendly. Having convenience stores, a 24h mart, and a Bannon/blue line MRT station (Zhongxiao Fuxing) in immediate proximity to the apartment rental was ideal. Highly recommend.
Our stay at this condo was excellent. The place is clean and the owner is very attentive to our needs. The location is a big draw for us. It is 4-5 min walking distance to Taipei 101 MRT and about 7-8 min walk to XinYi morning market. It has many wonderful places to eat and since Taipei 101 MRT is on the redline, you can get to DaAn, Dongmen and Taipei Train Station very easily! Also a hidden gem is the XinYi parent child center. If you have little kids under the age of 6, you can take them to this free indoor play center. It’s literary 3 min walk behind the apartment.
