One Night Stand in Taipei

 Click bait! The correct title is "One Night Sleep in Taipei". Here's where we stayed for a night in Taipei (April 2023):

Neijiang Hotel
No. 112 South Xining Road,
Wanhua District, Taipei

Why did we choose Neijiang Hotel? Location, location, location! One, it is near Mala Hotpot (our only reason for staying a night in Taipei), and two, because it is just a 6-minute taxi ride (about 135 NTD) or 20-minute walk from Taipei Main Station, which is the last stop of the Taoyuan Airport MRT. Plus, it is in Ximending, where there are many places to shop and eat. Neijiang Hotel is very near The Red House (a red brick building where locals sell their crafts), Wangji Fucheng Zongzi (where, in 2019, my friend and I ate zongzi, a dumpling made of rice and fillings), and it is just across Ximen Noodle (which looked like a popular place for locals!).

We had breakfast at Ximen Noodle, just across Neijiang Hotel.
We had noodle soup (90 NTD), and pork rice bowl (100 NTD).

Check-in at Neijiang Hotel went smoothly, and it helped that the receptionist could speak English. We booked a double room (1580 NTD). The room was clean. It had a refrigerator, electric kettle, two cups, a TV, and slippers. It also had free two bottles of water, instant coffee, and tea. The ensuite toilet and bath had a bath tub. Towels, hair dryer, and necessary toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, comb, razor, etc) were also provided. The hotel had WiFi and a small elevator.

My only complaint was that the hallway near our room (on the second floor) smelled like cigarettes though smoking was strictly prohibited in the hotel.
