The hotel has an elegant, sleek and modern design running through its rooms, bathroom facilities and cafes. All rooms provide a woven basket filled with free essentials required for your stay. PoshPacker has got you all covered. The luxury selling point of this hotel is that it provides a flat-screen TV in each room.

The Poshpacker Hotel has a brilliant central location; in most cases, such central location would lead to exorbitant prices and yet, this hotel provides affordable rooms which is just an 8-minute walk away from the Taipei Main Station. Not only is the accessibility great but the Zhongzheng District is bustling with street-food, authentic Taipei experiences and friendly locals.

While the hotel provides shared bathrooms, as in the case for most backpacking hostels, its facilities have been graded an 8.7 for cleanliness so you can be rest assured. If you are travelling as a group, this hotel can still accommodate you by putting you and your group members in rooms side by side, granting you your own private space after a long day of touristing and enjoying Taipei, but also the close proximity you may need for a midnight chat with the rest of your group.

Halal Friendly Services

This hotel is divided into male and female floors, perfect for conscientious Muslim travellers. The shared bathrooms are segregated and equipped with a Japanese washlet. The cleanliness and privacy of the hotel is held in high regard so you have nothing to worry about.

The hotel respects and accomodates to the needs of visitors with different beliefs. This is evident with Halal-friendly features each room offers; prayer directions are marked out, with prayer mats and a prayer timetable readily provided upon request. The hotel is also not part of the gambling resort and doesn't sell alcohol or have a bar. This will make you feel safer. Furthermore, the mini-fridges in your room are filled with halal goodies, so no need to check the back of the product for haram ingredients.

Time to enjoy the hotel's Halal-friendly facilities and get that blissful night of sleep, amazing!

Furthermore, they have female room attendants specially catered for female guests who are more comfortable with female staff.
