Beautiful facade - excellent service by friendly staff always ready to help. Peaceful spacious interiors and huge deluxe room with spacious balcony. Fabulous Olympic size pool. We made great use of their complimentary shuttle service which arrives so frequently we never needed to wait.

Very Accomodating For Someone With a Botched Reservation
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The Grand Hotel itself is an incredible structure. When we arrived about midnight, we found that our reservation was not on file and the reservation number did not match their system. After searching for about half an hour, the desk agent put us in an upgraded room for the night so we could work out the issues the next day. Over the next couple days we all learned that my travel agent had made the reservation in the sister Grand Hotel in a city 300 km away. The manager not only kept us in the upgraded room, but honored the rate at the other hotel, which was considerably cheaper than the stated rate on our room. The staff was very accommodating and did more than they were obligated to do to see that we had a good room for the three nights. The room itself was a comfortable one with a great view. The bed was comfortable and the temperature control in the room was excellent as was the lighting. I enthusiastically recommend the Grand Hotel.

Terrible Food, Unfriendly Service
Reviewed 2 months ago

I've lived in Taiwan for years and always heard good things about the Grand Hotel. My friend and I decided to go there for afternoon tea and it was one of the worst food experiences I've had in Taiwan. No one spoke good English. We were directed to the buffet. The food was greasy and gross and the desserts super sweet and the tea was make your own in a bag! The service was terrible. No one smiled or acted friendly. The staff snatched away plates before we were done. Although that was probably a good thing as the food made us feel sick to our stomachs. No one brought us a bill, we wandered trying to find a place to pay and were shocked to see a 10% service charge. For what?! It is a self serve buffet! We told the cashier about the bad service and she smiled and said "all the hotel not have". Um... Then we laughed nearly hysterically at the sign on the counter that said "Friendly Business 2011". Avoid this place at all costs.

Traditional Chinese building

If you like classic Chinese traditional hotel, this is the one to come, there are old and new building mix, ask for new building will have better room. The hotel located at the top of the hills, you got great view of the city of the Taipei, if you looking for a unique experience come stay for few nights!
