Does anyone know of a super cheap hotel like that in Taipei City. I figure if there's one $500NT a night hotel in Taipei, there must be more somewhere or other.
Anyone know of one?
There are still a lot of cheap hotels in Taipei and yes, many can be found around Xi men. But figure 700-800 Nt and up. Are you flying from out of town? How many nights are you looking at? Exactly what area do you want?
Within 4 or 5 blocks of the Xi men metro station are several cheapo hotels for under 1000 NT a night. Prices for short time or overnight stays are posted on street level signs.
You can also find cheapo hotels just north of main Taipei train station. From Taipei main station, go north across Civic Boulevard and west to Tai Yuan Road. There are several old, small, cheap hotels just off Tai Yuan Road just north of Civic Boulevard. If you can read Chinese, they are very easy to find. If not, it's a bit harder.
