Not perfect but we loved it anyway
We loved Hotel Papa Whale and would stay there again. Pros: Within walking distance from Ximen MRT Station and ideally located for visitors to Taipei. Unique and fun minimalist decor. No ugly, stained carpeting to trap dirt. Large room with two double beds. The bathroom was perfect for families because the shower, sink and toilet were separated, meaning three people could use and have privacy. Amazing sushi restaurant. Hot pot for breakfast! Cons: Despite what it said in the room description, our room did have a window but located very high up on the wall, so it didn't offer much visibility. No windows is an advantage because you have less noise (scooters) from the surrounding streets. Through the door, we could hear the Chinese music playing in the hallway and guests talking in the hallways which was annoying. There were puddles of water in the hallway from a leaky ceiling that sat there for days. Be warned--there are very few Western options for breakfast. We loved the hotpot for breakfast on Day 1, but by Day 3 we were tired of it and barely ate anything.

The hotel had a very unique style to it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, however the rooms do not have windows and were rather small as well.

An overall good stay
The hotel is a rare find. The room itself is ok, it will be better if we booked the room with window. The bar at the hotel is superb. They serve a good variety of draft beer. The sitting near the cafe is nice too. We don’t really like the breakfast provided. It’s just odd having steamboat for breakfast and the restaurant is dark. Overall it’s good. We would probably go back again.
