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
Arrived a day earlier than booked and the staff very obligingly gave me a room for the additional night (not free - but hoped they would have charged the same rate I paid for the rest of the 10 nights - not the case).
Buffet Breakfast, room bar (one coke, one sprite, 3 packets of snacks), two bottles of drinking water all included in the cost, as well as a 24/7 cafe in the lobby with coffee and biscuits all included free of cost.
Top floor gym and sauna included free of cost - unfortunately no swimming pool.
Staff were very friendly, spoke english reasonably well. The rooms were not overly spacious, but comfy, very clean, modern with modern gadgets.
In house laundry avoidable, and luckily there is a coin operated laundry facility within ten mins walking - staff willing to give you the address.
Convenient to use the MRT. Take the MRT from the airport to Daan (suggest purchase an "Easy Card" at the airport, put some cash on it to travel and pay for groceries at 7/11. Keep topping it up at 7/11 - best way to travel, and claim a refund of unused value at the airport on departure, but you do not get a refund of the cost of the card - NTD 100. On arrival at Daan, make your way to Exit 4, from there exit from 5,(because there are escalators to exit 4, useful if lugging suitcases) and keep walking for 3 mins to the hotel.
Convenient eating places around the hotel. The 7/11 just opposite (eleven oclosck), will heat your frozen meals at no cost. Just around the corner towards the left of the hotel, walk around 7-10 mins past Siwei road to find a grocery supermarket - "Welcome" - for additional requirements.
Catholic church - Holy Family, within walking distance (20 mins) - just across Daan Park, with english masses on Sunday 0945.
Our last hotel for our two week Taiwan trip was Fullerton in Daan District. It's my personal favorite because it has a beautiful and extremely comfortable sitting lounge in the lobby where we enjoyed a cup of good coffee and some cookies. This was a huge plus because this compensated the small room that we had. The mattress is a bit hard for us but when we asked reception to do something about it, they immediately attended to our needs. The staff here are extremely nice and helpful especially the gentleman in the reception who speaks English, the lady at the buffet breakfast on the 2nd floor and the lady at the lobby who replenishes the coffee supplies. Even if she can't speak English, she always smile graciously. The staff here can speak better English.
Their international spread for breakfast is excellent and I really enjoyed their salads. The hotel is just 200 meters away from Daan mrt so it's super convenient. Our three day stay was very pleasant and we're planning to go back again.
traveling for work.
Hotel chosen by a colleague, experienced in Taipei.
The hotel is near to a metro crossing station, so very easy to reach and a convenient place to stay if you have to move around. Quite near to the railway station as well.
Rooms not huge but comfortable and clean. Breakfast.
No restaurant in the hotel, lot of places nearby
