Taipei Roaders Hotel

When in Taipei, we always booked back City Inn Hotel, this time round we are too slow and thus, they are already fully booked when we confirmed our flight.

So, the search begins for a hotel in Xi Men Ding. We loveeeeeeeeeeeee staying there. Abundance of food and entertainment. Plus there is also a metro station in Xi Men Ding.

Our requirements are most importantly:

  • 3 pax room
  • Hotel is accessible from ground floor and not those that you need to take a lift up to maybe the 6th floor or something whereby the hotel is actually sharing the building with someone (most of the time its a shared space with a KTV joint and we doesnt really like such environment especially with a child)
  • Under SGD 200 (Est NT 6000)
  • Walking distance to the metro station

And…. I found Roaders Hotel !!!

They are like a hipster boutique hotel! Around 8 mins walk from the Xi Men Station exit 5.

They do have several triple rooms, like superior triple (~NT3700), deluxe triple(~NT4000) and VIP triple(~NT4030)!!

When we saw the photos online of the VIP triple room we literally went woahhhhhhhhh. and so, we confirmed!

Upon arrival, we checked in at their basement lobby, the staff accompanied us up! Photos later for the lobby, its so awesome!!!!


The actual room is true to the pictures we view on their website! Hotel is very new hence everything is still very nice and clean.



Ok what really really stands out from their lobby compared to others is that is 24/7, free drinks (except alcohol) for guests, free snacks and even cup noodles! Plus…… they screen movies daily and also has a dart machine! You can just chill there for as long as you want. For us when we go travelling, we love to dapow (take away) finger food back to the hotel to eat as supper, with this place, we just head down to the lobby instead and chill with their complimentary soft drinks!

10 Wedding Solemnisation Venues 2017/2018


After what’s been forever.. our built to order flat is finally 90% done, we had to get things going finally (ie. rom) Haha. 🙂 I tried searching for small / intimate solemnisation venue listing with prices so that we can gauge, but there isn’t much site that provides. Mostly are banquets pricing, hence i emailed & visited several places to get a quote myself. To be honest both of us are not keen in the traditional banquet wedding.. we just want an intimate ceremony with families and closed friends.

What we are looking for :

  • Pocket friendly prices
  • Vegetarian option
  • Outdoor / botanical set up
  • Able to cater for 30 – 35 pax

Here’s the research i have compiled below.. and.. of cause we confirmed a venue!!!
