What We Love

  • An easily accessible location in Taipei’s business district
  • Rooms with a view and spacious bathrooms with LCD TVs
  • The outdoor heated rooftop swimming pool and Jacuzzi with panoramic city views
  • The stress-busting massage at the world class spa
  • Six restaurants in all, serving everything from traditional Catonese to Italian

What To Know

  • A 10 percent hotel service charge per night will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout
  • Expect business travelers
  • Better for a quiet stay; not the most happening nightlife scene
  • A touch austere, from the imposing façade to the Sung Dynasty decor — but that’s part of the old-school charm
  • One child age six and under will receive free buffet meals at Café at Far Eastern when dining with at least one paying adult (up to a maximum of two children per room). If more than two children, or for children aged seven to 12, a discount of 50 percent will be applied to meals

Wonderful service, great experience!

We have booked a horizon premier room with access to Horizon Club Lounge. We took the family package that comes with in-room kid toys – a surprise to the kid. Although we have 4 + 1 small luggage, there is still much room to walk around as the room was spacious. There are 3 big and wide window hence the view was great too.

Needless to say, the staff at the club lounge is very helpful. Please thanks Ms Anita and all the other ladies for their hospitality. I would like to mention especially on the cleaning lady at the floor we are staying (level 21); Ms Mandy. She is dedicated and good at her job. Thank you for the super clean room which my wife and I are very particular about since we have a kid running around.

Luckily we took the hotel transportation as it was already dark when we ETA Taipei although it’s only 6PM. We were straight away whisked to our room and check in was done in the room. Ms Shirley was quick and thorough in her “orientation”. We like the fast and breeze check in procedure.

Thank you Shangri-la for the great experience.

This was my first trip to Taipei. I booked the trip online as a package deal. I chose Shangri-La because I had an excellent experience a few years ago in Bangkok.

Taipei's Shangri-La Far East has been an excellent hotel. Truly 5 stars, in service and amenities. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location has convenient transportation options and walkability.

I was invited to the hotel's weekly cocktail party in which I met the General Manager Randy (he is Canadian by the way). Super guy, leading a super team, running a super hotel.

I for one am going to look for the Shangri-La brand during my travels for a comfortable 5 star experience.

Wonderful stay, great services!

I stayed 4 nights early Decembre in this very nice hotel. In accordance with Shangri La level, the location, the accommodation, the food was outstanding. The team of this hotel is very professional, careful and always go the extra mile to make your stay better. A special thanks to Mr Etienne Joguin and his team for their help and attention to details. Definitely one of the best places to stay in Taipei.

Great room matched by great service

I've stayed at several Shangri-Las over the decades, and this is one of the best ones. Room is high quality with nice touches, but the service was particularly good. Always with a smile and very prompt. Enjoyed the gym also, quite large with many aerobicd machines and when I used it plenty of room.

In terms of the environment, next door is a small, high-end mall, which is a nice distraction although due to the small size does not add much in terms of additional restaurants and services compared to saying next to a Sogo. The neighborhood is conveninient for taxi, but in terms of walking not as convenient as further north in the Da-an neighborhood (where I have stayed in many hotels). But the quality of this hotel makes up for that.

I stay at Shangri-La’s Far East Plaza Hotel three times monthly due to my job. It’s one of the Best and the Most Hospitable hotel I’ve ever stayed. The employees there are Attentive and Friendly. I contacted the concierge twice regarding public transportation and the next morning, an envelope with detailed information was placed by my door. The shuttle bus driver was polite and on time. I’m very impressed with the professionalism of the staffs and I will defiantly recommend this hotel to my friends and family 👍🏻😇🙏🏻
