Truly unique place to stay, in Taipei & in general
The Readers’ House makes up part of a restored compound, close to a historically important trading port. The area is vibrant during the day and early evening, while being quiet in the later evening and early morning - ideal for noise during typical sleeping hours. Other tenants of the compound include a cafe, bar/restaurant, a little museum, shops, and reading space. There are 2 “courtyards,” in which an elevator helps to make the space accessible for those with mobility challenges. Range of activities nearby, along with wharf and transit. I found that we most benefitted from doing some research/exploring of the area on our own, and think others will too - but TRH team might consider how differently to prime guests about the significance and distinguishing features of the property. While some visitors may not care (initially), I think it could help folks to understand why the layout is the way it is. Our first night/day was a bit confusing, since getting in and out of the building and to our unit was not the most straight forward. I also saw other guests confused too. For my group at least, once I explained the building’s past, it made more sense about how the entry/exit works. Moreover, it eased some of my companions’ impatience at what initially seemed “annoying.” Perhaps additional print info for those with varied language/learning abilities. Just a suggestion, to further convey what to expect, enjoy, embrace at The Readers’ House and Dadaocheng - more should visit!

原住兩天,前台未见服務员,入住時给我4人日式房,全家超失望,因沒有網上中式华丽房形! 第二天得知入住時全店其實只有我們1家,其他房空的!即要求轉房,房價亦得知相同,結果換間超大中式房……但難補償第一天心情 房價不平……hkd 2300
