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
This is my first time staying at this hotel. I have been to Taipei several times but decided to stay nearer to the East District this time. I booked this hotel primarily for its proximity to Da An station and also for the ease in booking as the room rate offered is a flexi rate.
I would have picked Park Hotel Taipei but the room rates on its official website were all prepaid rates. Taipei Fullerton may be a little pricey but it is a very short walk to Da An station. Breakfast was also included. The executive room that I had stayed for three nights was spacious, clean and bright. It was on the eight floor and had been refurbished less than a year ago. The carpet, wallpaper, curtains and furniture were new and I liked that the huge Sony TV in the room came with all HD channels! I had stayed at 君品 before but didn’t like it as it was very dark inside the room.
It’s a pity that the bathroom wasn’t renovated but then it was functional. The water pressure was excellent so showering there was always a pleasure. The mattress and the pillows were firm so I always slept well. I enjoyed my stay as there were plenty of food options in the hotel vicinity and I could even walk to the Tong Hua night market every evening (Wellcome supermarket was also nearby). Breakfast spread wasn’t fantastic but it was good enough for me. I liked that I could enjoy a good cup of Americano at their lounge any time of the day. I almost forgot to mention that I was able to check in before 12 pm. That’s quite rare for Taipei hotels!
I have a business trip extended to 12 days in Taipei. This one is less than n5 mins walk to Metro station Da'an, metro is the best commute choice to my destination, save so much time during traffic hours.
The hotel has free breakfast on the 2nd floor, different dishes every day and they are indeed better than Marriott or Hyatt in many US locations.
Rooms are very clean, I like firm bed they have, and sheets are very white and clean. There are no smell, or smell of Clorox. I literally have to ask front desk for recommendation of dinner choice since hotel does not have a restaurant for dinner or lunch. I did stay long enough for one weekends. Staff are super helpful for me, have to give a shout-out to Ivy, Cherry, Carol and Clara, who helped me a lot.
This trip is long, but out of surprise, hotel actually makes this particular business trip enjoyable. It rains a lot during the stay, damp air and humidity bothers a lot, services from hotel does make this strip rather enjoyable, hence the title.
Hope this helps when you choose the hotel next time in Taipei.
Nice clean and comfortable room with large double bed, aircon, wall-mounted large flatscreen TV, tea/coffee, minibar (a couple of soft drinks for free), robes, safe, large walk-in shower. We stayed on the 7th floor at the rear side of the hotel, it was very quiet and we got good sleep. Breakfast is 6.30-10.00 and adequate with a variety of western and Asian choices. Staff and welcoming and helpful. Very close to Daan MRT station makes a great hotel location.
