The place is very instagrammable and clean. The staff speaks good english! I love it here. Will definitely recommend this to my friends!
The TV is very small and no toilet instead the room, just shower. But it's okay since they have common toilets.
The room was so humid and small. The service was bad and the receptionist was not very friendly.
The location of this hotel is great: it is approx 5 minutes walk from Ximen MRT station (and the Ximending area) and around 10 minutes from Taipei main station (for trains and the airport MRT). It is also very close to a number of convenience stores, restaurants and tea shops. The capsules are an interesting experience. I stayed in the mixed capsule room which was just opposite the bathrooms and contained 10 capsules (5 on floor and 1 more stacked on top of each of those). The lighting inside each capsule is nice, there are blue lights which give a "space-y" feel and regular white lights. Each capsule also had a mirror inside, 2 USB charging ports, 2 regular charging ports and Aircon facilities (although I didn't use the capsule Aircon as the outer room was cool enough). The capusles offer a good level of privacy as the door can be pulled completely closed and locked with a chain. The bedding was simple and clean. Another bonus of capsules is that each individual sets their own lighting so, unlike hostel dormitory rooms, you don't get woken up by the lights turning on when the first person in the room wakes up. The bathroom was clean and well kept (approx 8 toilets and 4 shower stalls in the female bathroom, as well as 2 sinks and 3 hairdryers with mirrors in front) and always fully stocked with toilet paper, soap, shampoo and body wash. The shared area was well looked after with comfortable seating, a few tables and a TV. The hotel let's you borrow board games and darts (darts only certain hours of the day though) which is a nice bonus. It was pretty cheap: I paid under 1400 Taiwanese dollars for 3 nights (about £34 so just over £11 per night) on a free cancellation booking. A Taiwanese friend of mine booked on a non-cancellation offer through the hotels own website and paid even less per night than I did.
The member of staff on the check in desk when I arrived seemed a little rude (although this is possibly due to speaking in a foreign language and politeness being "lost in translation"). I arrived around 2.30pm (check in from 4pm) and wasn't allowed to check in early (annoying but understandable) but could leave a bag. There is no system for baggage storage, you just leave the bag in the foyer. This wasn't a major issue for me as my bag only contained clothes and toiletries, nothing valuable, however I would have felt uncomfortable leaving anything more valuable as it could be taken by anyone. I stayed in a capsule, which was mostly great but it should be noted that the capsules have almost no soundproofing and even opening and closing the doors is rather noisy.
With a stay at SleepBox Hotel-Ximen, you'll be centrally located in Taipei, within a 5-minute walk of National Taiwan Museum and Presidential Office Building. Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
