Beyond expectation.For the price I was paying for, the hotel is beyond expectation. Room is spacious, clean and simple. Good toiletries are provided. Green tea bag and water kettle is also available should you want to make your own hot drink at night. The TV channels are a lot. Mostly non-English. There are some channels in English. The receptionists can speak some English. The best part is they try to speak English however little to make you feel welcome. Best of all is the location. It is in front of R5 exit from the Zhongshan Underground mall. The location gives proximity to Taipei Main station (so it is easy to get to airport MRT, the train station and high speed rail station). The hotel is also just some feet away from Zhongshan MRT station, giving you access to the Red and Green Line. These two lines are the key lines for you to explore Taipeinwith minimal station transfers.

Good Location for all activitiesThis places is very close to Zongshan station (中山) and you can also use Zongshan metro mall from Taoyuan Airport MRT station and Main Taipei Station. Use Exit R4. You can see sign in Purple ( of course! )after you get out under ground. Taipei under ground is so clean and safe for woman solo travellers even around midnight. Family Mart is cross the road. You have to leave a key every time you go out and this places is open for 24 hours. Mainly Chinese speaker but you can use little English at reception. All of stuff are friendly and helpful. My room was opposite side of EXIT and get really noisy after 6:30am. Room size are good and I would recommend someone looking for budget hotel.
Great Location, food everywhere, great hotel staff.Stayed 3 nights at Purple Garden and found the hotel to be well-located with many local eateries, restaurants and shopping centres around. The staff is very friendly and helpful and converse in Mandarin and simple English. Rooms are comfortable and clean and of reasonable size. Very wonderful place to stay. The only thing I found lacking (and it is really just a small matter) is that they only provide tea bags in the room and bottled water, no coffee, so just bring your own or buy from the many convenience stores around. Reasonably priced hotel and good value I feel. I have gone to Taipei many times before and stayed in many budget hotels, this seems to be the best so far. At Taipei Main Station, just use the underground path and look for Exits R4 or R5 which is just next to the hotel. On my first day of arrival, I used the street level to get to the Hotel and it just took me through one big round, when I could have just used the underground path and exit through R4 or R5. Purple Garden is highly recommended.
