Locate almost at the top end of old street. required a lot walking. However, we had our breakfast in a quaint dining area and we received the warmest welcome by the owner. my kids love the room very much and we had a great stay in the Japanese themed room. Both our rooms come with cosy balcony where we have...

Jiufen….Feel “spirited away” (The movie of studio Ghibli) in this decommissioned gold mining mountain town, originally built by the Japanese and now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture. This hotel is located in the top of Jiufen. But it is also the disadvantage of it because it is not easy to find. You have to...

Quaint Japanese style accommodation perched atop the hill. Did quite a bit of research myself before booking this place. Booked the more expensive deluxe room which had the best view of the hill and sea. Of course, this does come at a price, both monetary and physical. By physical, what I meant was the exercise required to get to the...

For us there were more cons than pros to this place, unfortunately. Pros: well presented, fairly quiet, nice view if you are facing the coast, pleasant breakfast. Cons: * the reservation process is unnecessarily complex (register with third-party booking site, request, receive an SMS, make 50% deposit online using Paypal by 12pm). * the map provided to "help" you find...

During our 5 days in Taipei, we pick the day in the middle to visit Jiufen. Luckily we left the suitcases in the hotel in Taipei and just travelled light with one backpack. This little Japanese style minsu is located nearly on the hilltop of Jiufen. It is not too hard to find it according to googlemap. We arrived at...

My wife and I just had our first visit to jiufen and we quickly realised that we had to climb a lot of steep slopes. It was a bit difficult to find the minsu or b&b, the only forms of accommodation in jiufen, so we found it after some directions form the helpful locals. We were greeted by the owner...

This is the most expensive night among our all eight nights in Taiwan, but I have to say it is worthy. The house is located on the mountain and there is a big window that we can see the whole Jiufeng Town and the Keelung port, especially in the night the view is fantastic. Whole house is japanese style: clean,...

This B&B is not the cheapest in Jiufen (NT3000 for Fuji room) but it is worth it for its cleanliness, location and view. They provide simple Japanese breakfast (portion quite small :) ) and no other meals. Be prepared to bring enough cash as no credit cards are accepted. Downpayment is the cost of half your stay via Paypal prior...

I found this guest house from Tripadvisor and love it when browsing through the pictures of the guest house because I never experience staying in a Japanese style guest house. We need to pay deposit for the booking. However, due to we are foreigner and wasn't familiar with Paypal, the owner allowed us to pay when reached the place. The...
