I found the Gallery when looking for an inexpensive, but decent alternative close to Nangang. Overall the hotel was good, clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The walls of the rooms were a bit thin, and though I could hear the TV next door, my neighbors were good enough to turn it off before too late. The hotel is a pleasant walk (10 minutes) from the MRT.
I had stayed in this hotel the previous year on holiday. The room was cleaned every day, it was quiet at night and all the staff were helpful. The Songshan railway station is a 5 minute walk away and trains in to Taipei city centre are very frequent, I understand the MRT is opening a new line in to this station at the end of November 2014. which will further improve travelling around Taipei. There are a number of places to eat inside the Songshan railway station mall, and within 10 minutes walk from the hotel. There is a night market within a 10 minutes walk from the hotel as well. The hotel has a car park, useful if you are travelling by car. The daily rate for this 3* hotel is good when compared to others located more central in Taipei. I would stay here again in the future.
This is my very first time going to a backpacker inn, the guest and the hotel staffs are very friendly, we become very good friends fast, and they are friendly and will bring you to nice places and advice for you for any good food in town.
I will definitely head there the next time i go!!!
