Overall satisfied but some points to take note of”

Felt uncomfortable in my first room as there was a locked fire escape equipment room connected. Despite that, I decided to remain in that room as I didn’t think too much into it and thought it wouldn’t be that bad. Explained to the receptionist about my worries and requested for a change in room. Learnt that there was a staircase at the other side, or maybe I heard wrongly. Thankfully there were other rooms available and they did the change for me right away. (No refunds for downgrading of room) Ceiling was filled with mirrors, some people may be uncomfortable with it As for the soundproof system, I could hear my neighbour snoring. But probably because he/she is an exceptionally loud snorer. Note that when you enter your room, the safe could be locked/unlocked and the password to unlock it is your room number. The network reception in the basement is a little bad. It’ll be better to connect to their wifi. Overall would still stay there again.

Cheap, comfortable and accessible”

Hotel Papa Whale was a highly affordable accommodation located in the heart of Taipei City (just a 10min walk from Ximen or Taipei Main Station). Decor is rustic and industrial, which is charming. Rooms are large and comfortable with free-flow buffet hot pot served as daily breakfast. Only gripe about the hotel was the lack of a proper ledge in the room for the placement and opening of luggages. The only ledge was that of the clothes rack which was too short in depth to comfortably support a 20" carry-on suitcase without tipping over. Had to lay the suitcase open on the ground which makes unpacking/packing tiring having to do it while squatting. Breakfast whilst yummy was serving the same stuff everyday, so after a couple of days, you'd be looking at eating out. Overall, the above are small gripes and I would still consider staying at this place again in a heartbeat.

Nice, Comfortable Chic Hotel”

While Hotel PaPa Whale's location isn't as accessible to the MRT station as some other accommodations, what you get as a trade-off is a place that's conveniently near a YouBike station, lots good food spots, and several interesting bars (including the amazing Driftwood Bar just next door!) Rates are very reasonable — just beware about reserving during peak holidays such as New Year's Eve, Chinese New Year, etc., else the prices will skyrocket. As for the the rooms themselves, they're very clean and modern, and come with some nice bonuses such as a safe and a mini fridge. Depending on the type of room you reserve, the room size may or may not skew a little on the smaller side; though for me personally, I stayed in the 'single comfort room,' and that was just perfect. Highly recommended.

Nice & cozy hotel at a great location ”

We booked this hotel last minute because our flight got cancelled. So it’s a last minute deal. The hotel situated nearby busy street of Xi Men Ding. So there are lots of shops, stalls & department stores within walking distance. The Xi Men MRT is also within walking distance. The layout of the hotel is very unique and alot of antiques are being displayed around inside the hotel. We got the 2 bunk beds so 4 persons can sleep. However if u have alot of big bags it might be a challenge figuring how to place them in the room. There is 1 toilet & bathroom but luckily they are separated. Hotel and rooms are well kept and clean. Overall it’s a good hotel to stay in.

Instragram-worthy hotel ”

Location is great as it is next to XMD, less than 5 mins work to the main XMD area. There’s a family mart just 1 Min away. The buffet breakfast is a steamboat at the restaurant beside, special for the first day but I won’t go the 2nd day. Room and toliet is simple and clean. I note that they have different theme, I would prefer the brighter room actually so you can request. The one I had, there’s a mirror on TOP of the wall so when I sleep I can see myself which is rather uncomfortable. Extension only allow for 30 mins. Hotel is good for photo taking and there is a cafe at the lobby which you actually have to buy the coffee / tea. But I sit there a few time to enjoy the quiet time, I love it!

Papa Whale is my usual stay in Taipei!”

I've stayed at Hotel Papa Whale many times and will continue to in the future! This time I was solo and the single room was perfect. It's location is just a short walk through Ximending from the MRT. If you get too hot, there's a conveniently place Ice Papa right next door to cool you off. The facilities are always super clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. If I could give an extra star just for the breakfast, I would. It's in the restaurant next door and offers a delicious spread of Japanese and Taiwanese foods. Overall Papa Whale is a great choice for solo travelers, couples, families, and friends!

Nice place”

Very nice place to take a rest after a long tourism day in Taipei. The room is well-designed, cozy and clean, the same like in the photos shown on the website. We had 2 night stay. Though we forgot to turn on the pls-make-up-my-room sign, maid still kept our room clean every single day, which is kinda lovely over-expected. Staff at front always put smiles on their face too. Anyway, we stayed on basement floor, wi-fi signal was very slow sometimes. But after all, this place is one of the best places in Taiwan that we will definitely recommend.

4 stars hotel with a lot to offer! I am just so glad we stayed in this hotel and even though I booked last minute the room rates was undeniably reasonable and yet still affordable. Given its location with just a mere 3mins walk to Ximen Station/Night market, We will definitely be coming back soon. Everyday the staff cleans our room, very nice hotel interior, good shower, comfortable bed and pillows, big TV. Thank you Papa Whale.

NO BED BUGS”

Contrary to what a local celeb shared via her IG account here in the Philippines, the hotel does not have any bed bugs, at least, the room we booked. Our room is industrialy designed, VERY clean, and no unusual/offensive odor. They have free toiletries, and slippers. They have numerous electric outlets, and hairblower. The shower and faucet has hot and cold temperatures. Their housekeeping is also 5/5. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

They really were the stems abd the core of the hub! And most important of all, they were very familiar with all the procedures and directions which I did not get confused throughout my entire stay!

Chic, Clean and Classy”

In terms of facilities, it is nice. It gives you a very comfortable feeling, the hallways are well-lit. But since there are a lot of turns in the floor, I got lost once but I found my way easily. Location is also good since it is only few minutes from Ximending Night Market and Ximen Train Station.

Modern Beautiful Hotel”

We stayed at the Hotel Papa Whale for 4 days and 3 nights on the cool month of November. The hotel staff were very friendly. On the first night I requested for extra pillows and they immedietely sent 3 pillows to our room. The hotel looked very modern but you feel that you are brought to the past because of the antique decor. It's really a beautiful work of art. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. It has everything you need. Nice restaurants and shopping stores abound within the vicinity. There are also plenty of taxi's and the train station is near. I wish to come back to Taiwan and stay at the Hotel Pap Whale.

Highly Recommend ”

Strategic location with reasonable price, +-10min walking distance to Ximen metro station which is very convenient for us to travel around Taipei. The room is clean and staff are friendly, not many facilities yet good enough for us to rest during the trip. Recommended.

Cool experience! One of the more unique hotels that I've ever stayed in..”

Room was clean and functional. Stayed there for a week. Interior is architecturally inspirational and a lot of fun. Windows were actually fake so there wasn't any actual daylight but I didn't mind it because I was out for most of the day anyway. Service was excellent and front-desk was responsive. I had to extend my stay a few times at the hotel and the front-desk was quick to accommodate. The unit was generally very clean albeit the bed frame was a bit sketchy (but comfortable) being a stack of wooden pallets and was a bit dusty beneath.. but who looks there anyway? Location is a bit far from the metro though.

Good location & vintage decoration”

Few minutes walk to mrt station & shopping district. Lots of good foods & convenient shops nearby. Love the vintage decoration. Staffs are friendly & helpful. Good wifi connection. One thing I don’t like is the toilet door need to pull hard to close that makes a loud banging sound. Toilet ventilation not good. There’s no window so you can’t look outside & get fresh air.

Staff are friendly and helpful(return my lost items, so sweet)”

This is not the first time I stay in this hotel. Last time , I left a pair of shoes and clothes in the hotel. The day I checked out last time, the manager informed me how to pick up my lost items. Yesterday, whilst I checked in, without any notice, the staff in the front desk just gave me a bag with the lost items. Highly appreciated!
