It was my first travel to Taiwan, and so, my friend introduced me to Rainbow Hotel. Firstly, the location is good, the building is big so you will never miss it. It is only 5 minute walk from the hotel to the nearest train station (Ximending). Along the walk, you will find numerous food restaurants (from ramen to western to...

We stayed at Rainbow Hotel as a family on 6th December 2016. Being right smack in the middle of Xi Men Ding, eateries, shopping outlets and other amenities are just a very short distance away. The rooms are decently-sized and clean, while the receptionist was friendly. Other reviewers mentioned that the lift, noise and wi-fi signal are negatives. Indeed, there...

I always thought Rainbow hotel is a must-stay since its smacked right in the middle of Xi Men Ding where the convenience level is of extremely pleasant status. Wouldn't it be a dream if your house is just right above a night market with really #cheapthrill food? I HAVE TO BET MINE IS. However, there's a tiny price to pay....

Hotel is very convenient in the middle of Ximen and walking distance to the MRT station. Easy access to food and shopping. Noise is expected since you are in the middle of the action. Wifi is extremely slow and it takes too long for a page to load so luckily I have my own data on phone which I used...

Well for this hotel, it's located right in the centre of the famous XiMenDing in Taipei, so of course, going anywhere, getting anything is a breeze. The downside? Being a small building, right in a busy attraction hub, it gets very noisy hearing the performers, the music coming from the people. This shouldn't be a negative thought for you to...

The location is superb as you are surrounded by eateries, shopping, cinema and massage places. We stayed on the 6th floor and we are glad that we are not disturb by any noise from the busy streets ( as highlighted in most reviews). Guestroom is spacious, decent, cleanliness 6/10 (carpet feel worn off and dirty), room lighting is dim. Just...

Stayed at Rainbow hotel with 9 others from 13th - 15th May. Location wise, I felt that rainbow hotel is located in a prime area, just outside hotel is a good bubble tea stall and diagonally opposite is Watsons. Another plus point for rainbow hotel is that it has family size rooms which can accommodate up to 6 persons in...
