iTaipei Service Apartment

Located about 45 minutes drive away from Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan, iTaipei Service Apartment offers fully furnished, elegant and modern service apartments in a central location in downtown Taipei. Directly above the QSquare Mall, and just opposite the Taipei Main Station Metro, which connects to both the Taipei Rapid Transit (TSR) and the High Speed Rail (HSR), iTaipei Service Apartment has unparalleled convenience. The drawback is that iTaipei Service Apartment has a noticable lack of internal facilities.

iTaipei Service Apartment isn't much to look at from the outside, rather drab and plain like a typical corporate building. The corridors are similarly drab, looking like a normal office, but without any decor at all. The main reception entrance is located separately, albeit nearby, the actual apartments. Actually getting to your apartment takes awhile, as you'll have to take 2 lifts. Fortunately, iTaipei Service Apartment has provided for a Concierge counter and Business Centre on the 5th floor.

In direct contrast to the exterior, the rooms at iTaipei Service Apartment are modern, clean, comfortable, spacious, elegantly furnished, and tastefully decorated. We stayed at the Classic Double Suite, which had a functional kitchenette, a washer & dryer, and 2 bedrooms, with the option of a sofa bed in the living room. Absolutely loved the space here, and there is a good variety of channel options on the cable television. However, the in-room wifi has poor coverage in the bedrooms, and there is only 1 small bathroom; it would be better to have 2 bathrooms instead.

There is almost no food options at iTaipei Service Apartment, beyond some small snacks and beverages provided by the guest pantry. This is because there is an almost mind-boggling array of food options in the surrounding area, including the QSquare Mall downstairs, the Taipei Main Station Mall opposite the road, and along the streets adjacent to iTaipei Service Apartment. The attached kitchenette also means you can cook your own meal.

Staff at iTaipei Service Apartment are friendly, and willingly assist with requests or enquiries. The Concierge counter at the 5th floor is staffed 24 hours daily, so getting assistance at any time isn't a problem. I also like that the security staff will greet you. Housekeeping at iTaipei Service Apartment is pretty efficient, they come around once daily between 12 noon to 2pm. Staff are also able to perform collection of items on your behalf, though you'll have to make payment in advance.

Facilities & Activities
iTaipei Service Apartment has a noticable lack of facilities, especially meeting rooms, conference rooms, their own swimming pool, and gymnasium. However, they've a shared gym and pool arrangement with QSquare Mall, though you'll have to pay over and above your room cost. The central location of iTaipei Service Apartment in the middle of downtown Taipei, Taiwan, makes it very convenient to travel almost anywhere by rail, bus, or taxi cab, and is a strong selling point for staying at iTaipei Service Apartment.
