※ For keeping the historic building with the original status, we didn't change the water system much while doing interior decorating. The shower/restroom area on the 2nd floor is outside of the room (5 sec away), it's a shared area for two rooms use. We have a small hand-made ceramics sink inside the room for wash-up.

We love hosting and helping our guests to have a great experience in Taipei. We also provide a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot to our guests that they can always find us for help through social networking app while exploring the city.

Our neighborhood named Dadaocheng, was an important trading port of tea and fabric in the 19th century, and now is a major historical tourist attraction and shopping area. It's also known for the local Taiwanese cuisine.

Besides of local food, there are many different style of restaurants/cafe (Chinese, Japanese, French, Mediterranean, America, etc) within a 10 minute walk of our place.

It's pretty easy to explore Taipei by public transportation system from our place. The nearest MRT Station is Beimen(green line), it's just two stops from Taipei Main(Railway) Station and only takes 5 minutes' walk to our place.

I have a lot of the experience on airbnb - Barcelona, Paris, New York and Berlin. This place is undoubtedly the best one among them. I was impressed by this building bulit 100 years ago and around historical neighborhood. I think maybe she is an aesthetic person to understand the history of teipei. Everything made us enjoy staying here. Our room we stayed was in good condition. And there were good amenities.  She is lovely and a kind. So We were touched by her solicitude for us. I sure that Staying in origin space is worth while traveling teipei. Actually I want to live here!!

I had so much fun with these lovely people, drinking coffee and beer, walking and exercising along the Tamsui river :) The room is beautiful and comfortable, I couldn't have asked for anything better. I can't wait to be back
