Shih Hsin University Hotels – Reviews of Hotels Near SHU

Sign up to find out some of the best places to eat, drink and travel in Taipei for 2017.


The Shih Hsin University is a private university that is located in the Wenshan District of Taipei, where many other top universities also reside. The Shih Hsin University was first formed in 1956 and has been building a strong reputation ever since. The Shih Hsin University is seen to be one of the best private universities and one of the best universities in all of Taipei, and the Ministry of Education in China have given it the Teaching Excellence award every year for ten years, which is no small feat.

Initially known as the Shih Hsin School of Journalism, the Shih Hsin University still teaches journalism to this day and has produced many of the country’s best journalists and reporters. The colleges inside the university include the College of Journalism and Communication, the College of Management, the College of Law and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

If you’re in the district to visit the Shih Hsin University, then you should also drop by the Taipei Zoo, which is where thousands of tourists flock every season. This is the main attraction in the district, with plenty to see and experience inside the zoo, but there is also a night market and scores of great places to eat and drink, so a visit to the Wenhsan District is sure to be a fulfilling one.

Times Nagasaki

The Times Nagasaki is a 2.5 star rated hotel that is ideally located in the Wenshan District, one of the most popular hotels in this entire area and one that offers everything that a tourist to this area could need. It is comfortable and it is affordable, and although it doesn’t have everything that the bigger and more expensive hotels have, it is in a great location, with many great places to eat and drink within walking distance.

  • Airport Shuttle? No
  • Free WiFi? Yes
  • Pool? No
  • Fitness Center? No
  • Restaurants? No
  • Near Public Transport? Yes

There are also several stations within walking distance of the Times Nagasaki, and these can take you around the city, with a direct line to some of the most beautiful and popular attractions, such as the iconic Taipei 101, which was, for a time, the largest building in the world.

It may not be to everyone’s taste, but if money, comfort and location are the main things you are concerned about, then it is perfect.

Ouiinn Guesthouse

This is a cozy guesthouse in the Wenshan District, perfect for those seeking some of the comforts of home, and for those who find that large hotels are too materialistic, too cold and too impersonal. This guesthouse is none of those things, because it is not a hotel. This is the sort of place you visit if you want a true taste of life in Taipei. In this guesthouse you’re not in a faceless business, but rather you’re in somebody’s home. They invite you in, they let you sleep in their spare bedroom, they let you sit on their sofa and watch their television, they cook for you and they keep you company. If you want to be closer to the people and the culture of Taipei, if you want an experience, an adventure, and if you don’t want to pay through the teeth to get it, then the Ouiinn Guesthouse could be perfect for you.

As we said above, there isn’t a great deal of choice in this district, and as it does still attract its fair share of tourists, not to mention many International students who come to checkout universities such as the Shih Hsin and others like it, then rooms can be in short supply. Therefore, if you plan on visiting this district then you should try and book as early as you can, because if you leave it late then your choices will be few to none.

  • Airport Shuttle? No
  • Free WiFi? Yes
  • Pool? No
  • Fitness Center? No
  • Restaurants? No
  • Near Public Transport? Yes

The Ouiinn Guesthouse has been rated 2.5 star. This is a clean, homely and well maintained establishment, and one that has been highly rated by the many guests that it has entertained over the years. The low rating is because there is nothing in the way of a pool, a restaurant, a fitness center or anything else that you would expect to find in a larger hotel. If none of this is important to you, if your main focus is on a comfortable and friendly guesthouse, with spacious, clean rooms, home-cooked food and a price that will fit all budgets, then this could be ideal.

The location of the Ouiinn Guesthouse is fantastic. A room here means you are always just a short drive away from major attractions, and you are also a short walk away from many stations that can take you anywhere you want to go in the city.
