Try the booking portals (booking.com, asiarooms.com, asiahotels.com, expedia, hotelscombined and so on). Lots of hotels in Taipei.

I don't recall any hotels in the Shilin area. The closest one is probably the Grand Hotel, which costs about US$150 a night and goes up from there. However, there are plenty of options in the rest of the city and Shilin is a quick hop on the MRT.

The Zhongshan area is accessible through Taipei's metro system and it is about a 15 minute ride to Shilin. If you're staying near the Martyr's Shrine, it really isn't close to a metro stop, and Shilin would be about a 10-15 minute cab ride away.

If you mean is it safe, the answer is yes. It's more quiet than some of the other areas though.
