Close to essentials, great value

Posted Sep 1, 2016
New to Taipei. This place is just steps to the subway station Xindian. It is also steps to the airport bus (1968). At night, upon arrival at the Xindian subway station, the hotel may be difficult to find. Facing the 7-11, the hotel is to the left. The sign is on top of the bldg, so it may be difficult to see. Look for the New California cafe sign at street level. Hotel is next to it. Have fun, request the river view at the highest level possible.

Very accessible to the MRT and bus to the airport.

Pros: Great location and service.
Cons: The sheet should be fitted sheet for the mattress.
Location: It is close to MRT, bus and taxi. The Bitan Bridge and park is lovely to walk and exercise. The restaurant along the park is great to have dinner.
My family stay at this hotel for two weeks and the service was great. The location of this hotel is one of the great thing about it because to the closeness to MRT, which is just across the street. It made the commuting to anywhere so easy and makes you feel right at home living in Taiwan forever. The area to the Bitan Bridge, park and restaurant around it is so beautiful and serene. The staff at this hotel was great and the last day they even gave us extra fruit for us during breakfast. This made our stay even more special.

Great location

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Convenience.
Cons: Room was not as clean as one would like.
Location: A massage place closeby. The noodle place across the road is good and cheap. There is a dim sum restaurant (Hong Kong style) above the MRT.
Even it is not located at the city center, you cannot beat the convenience factor. It is steps away from the MRT XinDian. We took a bus directly from TaoYuen Aiport, 1968, for 135NTD. The free breakfast is not great but decent. We stayed there for three days, checked out to go to BeiTeu, and came back for one night. Kept the big luggage here at the hotel. The second room was not as clean as the first one. You can take a bus from here to WuLai (another hot spring area) too.

Housekeeping of the room can be improved. Hotel is abit rundown but it is very close to Bi Tan and the MRT station. Good location for those who wish to have a scenic view of Bi Tan.

comfort and convenient

Posted Jan 8, 2013
Pros: Comfort bed and clean room
Cons: Breakfast

Quite comfort and convenient. Just at the side of MRT and near to bitan scenary view. However, not much choices for breakfast. So improve it to more variety and more international food.

New California Hotel

Posted Dec 20, 2012
Location: The location of the hotel is at Xindian, which is the last station of Green Line. Takes about 30-45 mins to go to the city.
There is a straight bus from Taoyuan international airport, bus ride is around 1h15mins. It is very convenient. The hotel is located right beside the MRT station, you can get around taipei city easily. The downside is the hotel is pretty far away from the city, takes about 30 mins to travel up to ximending. Facilities of the hotel is good. There is free wifi and the connection is fast. There is a mini night market near the hotel so even if you are hungry at night, you can take a 5 mins walk and get some food there. There is a 7-11, watsons and cafe nearby. You can take a bus (849 if im not wrong) from the bus station to Wulai. In Wulai, you can walk up the mountain to see the waterfall and try out the hot springs there. The bus ride is around 15 mins, so it is quite fast.
