I just came back a few days ago....stay at Fortune Hotel (福君海悦)....10 minutes walk from Taipei Main Station and 台北地下街. Can walk to Ximenting if you want but I guess it will be more than 20minutes....alternatively it's only one stop to Ximen station on blue line subway, cost 20 yen(SGD $0.90).

It is a new hotel. Rate around S$150 include breakfast for 2, not too bad for Taiwan stds, it's almost 5 stars. Here are some snapshots.

I stayed at Dolamanco Hotel when I was in Taipei in May. Three Star hotel, five star service. The only thing is it's at Da An. Center of Taipei City.

if you are looking at mid-upper range, dun go for Rainbow hotel coz the rooms is like our 2-3* hotel type. The price is from around SGD88-125.
However I simply lurrve that hotel coz its at the best location. Just walk down 30seconds and u'll reach Ah-Zong mian xian *slurp!* and many other good shops :)

Rainbow is good. If you are staying over weekend, normally you will see the celebraties holding their roadshows just outside the hotel. If you are going with your GF. AVOID Watson if you don't want to burn your wallet a bigh hole.
:D

I was talking to a Cab Driver stationed at Song Shan Train Station. He was saying that activities are actually moving from Ximending towards 101. The only place that's still crazy when it comes to activities it's still ShiLin night market. It's pratically PACKED like sardines.

ximending still popular among taipei teenagers. but for tourists, i think shihlin and wufenpu can give better buys for fashion.
