Make an urban retreat to enigmatic Taipei and stay right in the commercial centre at the Taipei Fullerton Hotel – South. Located in the Daan district, close to the MRT and within walking distance of the world-famous Taipei 101 skyscraper, this sleek four-star property is the ideal place to stay.
Foodies will rejoice at the city’s culinary offerings (especially if you’re looking for cheap eats). Spend time at the busy night markets, take respite in tea houses and marvel at the mish-mash of architecture, from Japanese-era mansions to quaint shophouses. And when you need some time out, recharge your batteries with coffee and homemade cookies in the Fullerton lobby or take a walk around the rooftop Zen garden.
How to Get There
Stayed 3 nights. Doorman came to unload our bags as soon as he saw our car stopped in front of the hotel. Check-in is fast, less than one minute. Room is not big but adequate. Everything inside the room is clean and well maintained. Breakfast has reasonable selections, and they do change a few dishes every day. Hotel location is good as can walk to shopping malls and department stores such as Sogo in 20 minutes, which is perfectly fine when the temperature in mid Feb is 16-23C and without rain. It is definitely a hotel to be considered when visiting Taipei
PROS: Good location to the underground train (intersection of red/brown MRT line) which will take you to Taipei 101, main train terminal, etc. Comfortable bed. Showers had strong water pressure. Great breakfast selection. WIFI. Good massage/reflexology nearby after a long flight. Rooms were updated and just fine.
CONS: Rooms are small in size, we had 2 carry-ons and it pretty much filled the room.
Slow elevators. We reserved the first 2 nights online and when we wanted to stay one more night, the front desk was going to charge us a lot more, even though it was currently less online. When we asked if they could honor the online rate, they refused. I then asked if they'd honor if I booked online, they were reluctant but said yes. So I booked online while at the front desk. They could have saved the revenue from paying a third party.
The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to Daan mrt station( 2 stations away from Taipei 101). It helps since I was there for countdown and going back to hotel by any means of transport is close to impossible. I walked back to my hotel.
The room is of a reasonable size for 2 person and the room is clean.
Both international and Asian selections are available.
Hotel called me before my trip to confirm my booking and check-in is fast and smooth. Front desk always wears a smile.
The hotel is centrally located. It is 5-minutes away from Daan Station (Red Line). Two stops away from Taipei 101 and key tourist spots.
Breakfast is very delicious with different and various choices presented daily.
Front Desk Team is very courteous, sensitive and helpful in anticipating clients requirements particularly Mr. William.
Overall, enjoyed my stay in the hotel.
Reasonable western selection for breakfast is included with the room booked. Good connection to WiFi, multiple devices can be connected at the same time in the room. Though the hotel and rooms are slightly dated, in-room amenities are well provided.
