Yomi Hotel inTaipei (优美饭店) is located in a vibrant neighborhood, strategically within 2 minutes walk to the bus stop (in front of Ambassador Hotel) and 5 minutes walk to Shuang Lian MTR Station. There is plenty to explore around the hotel – Watsons, Cosmed, bubble tea shops, 7-11 (lots) and food streets to name a few.
The hotel seems to be very popular among the Japanese because we saw lots of Japanese tourists staying at the hotel. The rooms and interior have a hint of Japanese vibe too, perhaps to cater the Japanese tourists.
The room was immaculate and natural with pale wood. It was decently sized (I wouldn’t expect anything bigger really) with a small couch, dresser table, TV and a tiny closet.
I liked the attention to detail such as the multi adptor and the various types of cables you need for Iphone/Samsung/etc. You’ll be totally safe if you are staying in this hotel without bring your charger. The hotel even caters to different firmness of the bed upon request. See the card behind the lamp that says “Memory Foam Topper” ? If you find the bed too hard (which I did), the memory foam is provided free of charge.
The memory form is just among one of the things that’s provided free at the hotel. Here are a few more : the mini bar is free, washing & drying your clothes is free (free washing powder too), free coffee, free soft drinks at the lobby and the best part is, the the hotel loans you a POCKET WIFI too ! The hotel is also baby friendly, providing items like baby bed, baby bathtub, baby shampoo, baby toothbrush, baby stroller, baby ladder, etc. Yomi Hotel is possibly one of the most thoughtful hotels we’ve stayed in.
The bathroom reminded me of my stay in Japan with the washlet and the deep bath tub with a slant (perhaps more ergonomic when soaking in the tub?)
The hotel’s breakfast area was combined with the computer area. Bright, clean and spacious.
Another thoughtful act here – the computers were set in different languages: Traditional Mandarin, Simplified Mandarin, English and Japanese.
Breakfast was classic Taiwanese, consisting of porridge, pickles and dishes such as “big sausage wraps small sausage” and “three cups pork”; and a small section for Western breakfast.
It was about NTD 3000 + per night and well worth it 🙂
