Taiwan 8D7N Free & Easy Tour - Taipei M Hotel (台北門精品旅店)

Day 5 - From CingJing, we booked a transport to take us to Taichung High Speed Rail (HSR) station. We are taking the HSR train to our next destination - Taipei! 

Prior to travelling, we checked the timing and bought the same day tickets upon reaching the station. (NT670 for adult, NT350 for children). Though the HSR train tickets are more expensive, we saved  travelling time as it only takes about 1 hour from Taichung to Taipei. 

Seating are rather comfortable as everyone still managed to have some leg space even after putting our bags/luggage.

Alighting at Taipei HSR station, we walked for about 15 minutes (with our luggage) before reaching our resting place for the next 3 nights ; Taipei M Hotel - Main Station (台北門精品旅店). It wasn't too hard to locate with Google Map and we also managed to explore the area on our way there.

While waiting for Hubby to check-in, the children spotted drink dispenser stations providing refreshing beverages for their guests. This is definitely very welcoming for us especially after taking a long walk to reach the hotel.

Even though Taoyuan International Airport is not very far from Taipei M Hotel, we decided to book the airport transfer service (NT1000) for our peace of mind.

Check-in complete! We took the lift up to the 7th floor and looking at floor plan, there are more than 50 rooms on a single floor!

We booked a Fashion Family Room for NT 9890 (3 nights stay - inclusive of tax). This is the 'smallest' size room we have stayed throughout our trip to Taiwan but the room is clean and comfortable. 

There is walking space after placing our luggage. 

Toiletries and basic amenities are provided (including hair dryer, towels etc).

Toilet and shower room is of reasonable size. 

One of the main reason for picking Taipei M hotel, apart from its location, is the availability of washing machine and dryer. As we are on a 8D7N trip, we planned to wash our clothing and bring minimum dirty laundry back home.

Washing machines and dryers are available on the 11th floor of the hotel but to our surprise, all of them were occupied (even at 11pm) and there was a long waiting line to use the machines. To our dismay, we have to forgo our plans and look out for laundromat near the hotel. (Thankfully, we managed to find one that is about 10 minutes walk away and still got our laundry washed!)

Gym Room on 11th floor

Taipei M Hotel's rooftop garden is pretty neat and relaxing especially for those who wants to have some quiet time and fresh air. 

I must say M hotel has a lot of drink stations, and guests do not have to worry about feeling thirsty! 

Our room rate is inclusive of breakfast and hence we had a hearty and filling breakfast before we head out for the day.

While we were disappointed not being able to have our laundry washed within the comfort of the hotel, we had a rather comfortable stay at Taipei M Hotel. It is within walking distance to Taipei HSR station and there are a few eateries nearby.
