Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, is one of the key tourist destinations in Asia. Famous for its night markets, street food and trendy fashions, Taipei city attracts visitors from all walks of life around the world. Taipei city offers a wide range of accommodation choices, ranging from five-star hotel to homestay. Boutique hotels have increasingly been a popular choice, given the unique experiences and high level of comfort in these hotels. One of the recommended boutique hotels will be Tango Xinyi Hotel, which promises to deliver comfort and convenience.
Elegant boutique hotel with dim lightings
Located along ZhongXiao East Road, Tango Xinyi is part of the Tango Hotel Group. With several hotels around Taiwan, Tango Xinyi was built in 2006 with 108 rooms in the 8th storey building. Room rates start from 5,100 NTD (155 USD), and Tango Xinyi hotel offers spacious rooms of various sizes. Unlike most hotels which are brightly lighted, Tango Xinyi hotel is dimly lighted even at its lobby. First-time visitors may mistake the hotel as a love-hotel for couples due to its unique dim lighting but this is definitely a hotel that is suitable for families and business travelers as well. For couples, the advantage of the dim lighting may also create a more romantic experience for you!
Hot tub in the spacious room is a bonus!
After a long day out, the hot tub in your room is a luxury to help you wind down. The tub comes with a television so you can enjoy a show while enjoying your soak. The roomy bathroom also comes with separate shower facilities. Water pressure is great with clean towels and toiletries replenished on a daily basis. In some rooms, the bathrooms come with a washing machine so you could do your laundry conveniently if needed. The rooms are very spacious too and come with 2 more television sets – one in front of your bed; and the other at the corner in front of your working desk. You can be entertained by the TV programs whether you are on the bed, working at the desk or in the bathroom! The room also comes with a lounge chair for an ultimate relaxation experience.
Free snacks and soda with complimentary breakfast!
Most hotels charge for mini-bar but not Tango Xinyi hotel! Hotel guests can look forward to two cans of free soda plus two pieces of the famous Taiwanese pineapple cakes in your room every day. Bottled water is also offered and replenished every day. The free mini-bar will definitely make a difference to your stay, especially when you check in or return to the room after a long day out. The pineapples cakes are so good that you will think of buying some home as souvenirs! Pineapple cakes are available in most places in Taipei and you can check with the hotel staff for the famous local stores in the vicinity.
Complimentary breakfast is offered to hotel guests every morning. The buffet spread is rather limited but good enough to get you started for the day. The food is replenished quickly so you will be able to enjoy warm and freshly cooked food. Coffee machines are available so you get to choose from a selection. For non-coffee drinkers, tea and fruit juices are available to suit your need too.
