Grand European-style hotel with a stellar pool and spa in the heart of Taipei
It may have only opened its doors in 2014, but this stately landmark in downtown Taipei already feels like a modern classic. Set on tree-lined Dunhua North Road in a popular business district, the vibe falls somewhere between traditional high European style — think crystal chandeliers and marble, gilt and neoclassical flourishes galore — and streamlined Asian elegance. The Art Deco–inspired Jade Lounge hosts afternoon tea, where you can sit on curvy chairs covered in chinoiserie fabric and sip Taiwanese blends. Upstairs, the theme of heightened luxury continues. Expect rich colors and textures and heart-warming views over the city skyline or tranquil courtyard. All-marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs are ideal for curing jetlag, though you’ll find an even more effective cure at the spa, spread over two floors and offering decadent treatments like caviar facials and body cocoons using rose oil. Do a few laps in the gorgeous outdoor pool before hitting one of the hotel’s many gourmet destinations — haute Italian at Bencotto, classic Cantonese at Ya Ge or French at Café Un Deux Trois. Along with the swanky cocktail hour at the Jade Lounge, you can get drinks at M.O. Bar — and morning pastries at the Mandarin Cake Shop.
In the Area
Taiwan’s capital city has plenty of diversions, both modern and traditional. Start with a shopping excursion to Xinyi District, home to the city’s most famous landmark, the Taipei 101 Tower, and a branch of Eslite, a lifestyle store that deals in music, food, fashion and books. Take home a finely tailored dress or suit from Shiatzey Chen, one of China’s most venerable fashion names, or check out the high-end designs of Sophie Hong: along with apparel she sells paintings, jewelry and accessories. Take a retail break at Ding Tai Fung, which serves the city’s finest soup dumplings (Tony Bourdain is a big fan), before touring the Baoan Temple, a Taiwanese folk temple built in 1830.
How to Get There
Staying in MO Hotel in SG and Shanghai b4, this is is my first time to stay @ MOTP. Booking through official website, the price over HK$ 4700 per night include breakfast. Honestly, the room size is spacious, but the view is terrible, facing the roof top of the residential building. Only single sink in the bath room, definitely not up to the 5 star standard. The quality of the breakfast also bad, limited choice, noisy environment, hot food is cold...…. Dirty utensil in the buffet table for guest. Compare with another MO, Shanghai and Singapore definitely much better. Luckily, the staff is very helpful and courteous. Easy to find a better hotel in TO with more reasonable price. 😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔
Decided to stay here this time in Taipei and it’s the best hotel in Taipei. Large rooms, clean and renovated, and a decent breakfast buffet.
Their suites have 25-30’ foot ceilings, with generously sized showers and a small tub that looks into the living room. A walk in closet and finishings (that have spared no expense) are noticeable immediately.
The service is well trained and genuinely friendly. They helped but movie tickets at a convenience store because pre-booking online requires account registration, and couldn’t accept a foreign Amex for some reason.
There’s a lounge that serves free alcoholic drinks, snacks and tea/coffee during the afternoon and evening, with staff always ready to help with whatever you need.
I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel all the way through. One last thing to mention is their spa, it’s probably the best one available, that is a much larger space than one would assume.
If you want to stay at the most luxurious place in Taipei, stay at MO in Taipei.
Stay in MO every time when I in Taipei
1.For the executive floor, in-room check in, efficient and friendly

4. Varieties ,delicious breakfast and happy hour canapés in the lounge
5. The Thai restaurant is the one the best in town
Great service offered by the staff. The lighting and decorations are just perfect and gave an extremely comfortable environment during the stay. Having breakfast at the oriental lounge without hustle. Like the swimming pool which provides floating boards which provide options for the guests.
Nice and thoughtful staff. Spacious room. Considerate and professional service. Good location. Great breakfast. Can not find anything to complain. Will definitely choose Mandarin Oriental again for my next stay.
