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

In the heart of Taipei

We went on holiday with friends, and glad we chose this as our hotel. The lobby is beautiful and feels very Shangri La, and the rooms, while slightly dated, are very comfortable. Huge breakfast buffet, and a beautiful rooftop pool. Had a wonderful stay!

A Cocktail of Luxuries

The room was spacious, clean and loaded with amenities for comfortable living at very competitive rates. The staff, concierge, doormen, and attendants provided us with superb services and attention to details for our conveniences. Complaints were addressed immediately. The hotel breakfast was just fabulous with varied choices of food. The hotel walked the extra mile by sending us an email regarding some belongings we left behind and offered to send them to us. What more can one ask for but look forward to coming back again for the next stay?

Truly Amazing Hotel and Staff

We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our 2 week stay here. Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations, 5 stars +. Truly a fantastic experience.

The hotel.... it is beautiful as was our room. Amenities are outstanding....especially the rooftop pool with amazing views of the city. Horizon VIP lounge was exactly that, quiet and relaxing with a wonderful menu and great service from Paris and her team. The hotel is in a great location and neighborhood, lots of nearby restaurants, shops and a night market. If you want to venture out further its a short walk to the MRT or the Hotel offers a free shuttle bus to areas in Taipei.

But the main reason for our great stay was the service we received, it was impeccable. From our arrival at the airport where we were met by Herbert (we booked the car service through the hotel for pick up -highly recommend!) Outstanding service at check in with William and from Concierge, Chris, Jeffery, Rita, Daniel, thank you so much for assisting us. And the Valet service, thanks to Harwin, Jerry, Dennis, Eric, Kent and Dennis, so appreciate your service and translating for us to ensure we always got to our right destination! And then our check out with David, like every interaction with all staff, efficient, professional yet so very warm. Everyone made us feel very much at home!
