When I went to review a local Express type hotel recently, I remembered Just Sleep Hotel, Taipei.

I stayed in this hipster hotel in Taipei, Taiwan for 5 nights some years back.

“Just Sleep” is an affordable Hotel Chain with 5-star services and amenities to provide a smart comfortable experience for guests.

The hotel’s location which is just a 2-minute walk from the Ximen Ding MRT Station with its modern functionality is a perfect combination.

Best of all, it’s right above a 7-eleven.

JUST FOR SLEEPING

The Superior Twin we check into was remarkably small at approximately 26 m² for 2 single beds.

As you enter, the bathroom is on the left with separate cubicles and glass doors for shower and WC with obscured glass for privacy.

You could make a nice cuppa or make an instant ramen sold at Taiwan’s 7-Eleven convenience stores.

The Taiwanese and Japanese make some of the most spectacular instant noodles which are elastic with perfect chewiness.

THE TAIWANESE 7-ELEVEN DRAW

I’m digressing I know. The memory of Taiwan’s 7-Eleven is very compelling. My travel companion and I spent many happy hours each night browsing the outlet.

One was probably we couldn’t understand TV in Mandrian or care to watch any. Two, we wanted to shop more but the mall was closed. Three, we wanted to snack as much as possible and the 7-Eleven has all the interesting looking milk, fruit juices, candy, chocolates, buns, sandwiches and ramen we wanted to eat.

Best of all, the 7-Eleven stays open 24 hours even in a storm.

Back to the room and functionality.

Unlike typical hotel rooms that Malaysians are used to, Just Sleep rooms are long and narrow and about seven feet across!

See how narrow that is! The door opens just so it misses hitting the edge of the WC.

To the left, the bathroom vanity is more of a multi-purpose sink with a Corian solid surface countertop feel to it.

FUNCTIONALITY

Who says you have to hide the little safe? If someone breaks into the room, whether the safe is in a cupboard or just sitting pretty on a ledge, there is not much deterrent, right?

We like the tiny little baby blue fridge, home of our snacks, milk, and drinks for a few days. With no drawers, the hair dryer is kept in a little bag on the counter top with the tissue dispenser for the company.

There is a love seat to snuggle in. Needless to say, we found that we could fit in if we sit straight up with shoulder touching. That has lasted for a good 3 minutes. We laughed our heads off. Later we sat on our bed to chat.

FINALLY JUST SLEEP

The beds are touted as Pressure-relieving, body contouring Wellspring Bed. Well, we did sleep well the moment our heads touched the pillows after the entire day of touring and non-stop walking’.

Basic mugs with mineral water and a stainless steel electric kettle. No fear of plastic poisoning!

Space saving, the U channel hung from the ceiling is great for hanging up our jackets and towels.

There is a flashlight under the countertop. If we pull this out we can read the escape route on the back of our bedroom door.

The doors are metal, so if you need to leave any signs for the chambermaid, just peel off the stickers and stick it outside!

The tiny “love seat”. The only way to get comfortable is to seat ONE, not two!
