Around nine in the evening and we were still on our way back to Taipei from a busy day in Yehliu Geopark and Jiufen Old Street. Our luggages were still waiting to be picked up at Ximen Corner Hostel where we stayed for the first two nights. We flagged a taxi from Ximending area to Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue, our accommodation for the next two nights in the city.
A hundred dollar brought us to the doorsteps of the hotel. They occupy second up to the fifth floor of the building with the lobby on the fifth floor. Jeff, who was manning the front-desk that time, instantly asked for our passports for him to check us in. He probably noticed our tired auras so he did the process in just a minute. Going down a level, we settled on our elegant room on the European floor. The floor is the festival of paintings because of the mural wallpapers used in the hallways.
Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue is a boutique hotel having each floor portraying a theme. These are: American (pieces from the big apple), European (festival of paintings), Japanese (way to the garden), and Taiwanese (traces of Taiwan). With this, it’s perfect to note that no two rooms in the hotel are the same. Rooms types are spread across bunk rooms, single, double, and triple rooms.
Deluxe Twin room has two twin beds covered with thick duvets and each having a plushy pillow. On the side bed is a cabinet where you can find a safe. Above it are the labeled light switches and two wall outlets for charging your gadgets. On the other side are the working table, coffee and tea making facility, and a small fridge. Free treats include a bowl of fresh and sweet cherry tomatoes, packets of goodies, and bottled waters. Noticeable upon entry is the flat-screen television pumped up with English movies.
Shower has hot and cold options on both handheld and overhead spouts. Toiletries like shampoo, shower gel, and hand soap are available on tube-like dispensers. Just in case you forgot to bring some shower amenities, the hotel also provides free dental kit, shower cap, and razor. Towel is also provided and they replenish every day just notify the front-desk. The toilet seat is also equipped with uber-cool easy-to-use remote-controlled bidet. Don’t forget the hairdryer for an easier way of drying your hair.
Rates are so affordable for the facilities and amenities that Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue offers. What stunned me was the list of freebies are endless! Apart from the high-speed internet with each room having its own router, use of washing machine and dryer is free of charge.
Unlimited ground coffee and hot and cold water are also available in the lobby. The staff could also heat your food on a microwave and even give you free stuff like a rice dim sum. If you’re planning to tour some destinations on the northern coast of the country, they can arrange your taxi or travel-car service to these spots.
Breakfast is not included in the hotel rates and the property has no restaurant or cafe. Don’t fret because the street where Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue is situated has numerous food stalls offering diverse options from noodles, stir-fried rice, and others.
Before the check-out time, I visited the front-desk to ask for the laundry area. Michelle, who was assigned on that day, handed me a greeting card and a cake! I was surprised how the management knew about my birthday. I recalled that I handed them my passport during check-in and they probably saw my birthdate. The greeting card is such a sweet gesture of the management and really heartwarming.
What can you still ask for? Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue already has got it all for you. From accessibility to MRT stations, comfy rooms, and countless freebies and surprises, the hotel indeed delivers beyond what is expected. So you know the deal, make Morwing Hotel Culture Vogue your abode during your stay in Taipei City, Taiwan.
