not worth the price

the hotel itself is a beauty, but the room was just old and small. the view was nice though.
and the breakfast was not bad, but nothing standed out. Honesty, it's just not the experience you should get in a five-star hotel. More like a 3.

Beautiful building, Buffett just OK
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The Grand Hotel is a beautiful building with several places to walk and explore and to take photos.

We went to enjoy the afternoon tea and were seated at a table farthest away from Buffett (I think because we had children), which is not appreciated - it was not easy to access buffet with kids from so far away.

When the buffet opened, there were so many lines and people were literally pushing each other to get their items. Some of the items which ran out were refilled, but others were refilled with different items. People were trying to eat as much as possible as fast as possible so the dishes were messy.

The LuRoFun was the best I’ve ever had. It was nice to see chicken nuggets and other items for the children. We ate a lot, but I would not return.

The best stay

The hotel is spacious, grand and historical. The room is clean, tidy and well renovated. The swimming pool is Olympic size, staff is efficient and would always lend a helping hand. I requested for a one hour extension and it was granted for free. The shuttle bus and airport bus is so convenient to use. I recommend this fabulous hotel. Really value for money at 100 USD per day.

For visiting only. Don't stay.

Most guests of the hotel are tourist groups from China, so that the hotel does not care about individual tourist. They gave me a room right across the elevators. It's also above two large kitchen hood vents, despite I requested a quiet room when I booked three weeks ago. After I complained, they assigned to a very quiet room which need a car ride me to there. The entire floor had no any other guest. This time, however, the shower drains clogged, and the water had 3" high when I was taking shower. Then there is a live cockroach in the cabinet! I had no choice but asked changing to another room at 2:30am. They transferred me to a room with good view, after I lost almost one night's sleep.

Price of foods are expensive there, but they are not well prepared for what you paid. Carpets of the three dining halls are dirty and the red color changed to black.

No second chance at a first impression

Very impressive Hotel that commands a presence over Taipei and the drive in is beautiful. A friend from Taipei described it as Iconic.
It just about stops there. Customer service is zero. We weren’t sure if it was our nationality but I would hope we never treat tourists the same way at home. Despite them having rooms available, “Check-in is 3pm”. There were many westerners waiting in the lobby for check in whilst it appeared locals were able to Check-in early. All seemed to be led by an officious front office manageress.
The rest of our time was great. Restaurants are top class and so is the service. The wine list is the same in each and sadly lacking choices or the option by the glass. I would Iike to have given a higher star review, in all it was a good stay, unfortunately soured by our Check-in experience.
