A quaint space that'll meet your needs and also offer great local morning and night life spots.
A few minutes walk from Taipei 101/World Trade Center MRT station (red line), but the apt is also on a street frequently trafficked by taxis and buses if you want to go somewhere not easily accessible by MRT. There's a supermarket 3 blocks south as well as a 7 Eleven along the way. In the morning head 1 block south to Wuxing Street for your produce, wares, and of course your morning breakfast. At night, 10-12 min walk to Tonghua Street to the west although Wuxing Street also has some night action albeit smaller in size and variety. Take the main road directly east to the end and you'll find yourself on a hike path up Elephant Mountain where you'll find a great view of Taipei city looking towards the northwest.
The host is friendly and responsive (English is no problem), no more could be asked for. Highly recommended and would stay here again just for the delicious convenience of the morning market and slower atmosphere compared to locations closer to MRT stations.
