Affordable and luxurious
My friend recently returned from Taiwan describing it as "like Singapore, except everything's in Chinese". It's safe, has great food and has an efficient public transport system. From visiting the most picturesque tea houses to releasing sky lanterns at Shi Fen Old Street, Taiwanese dramas have given us so many reasons to visit this food haven.
And here’s a little secret from us - you can now get to all these places for under $450, including a 3D2N stay and a return flight! No extra costs and hidden prices, straight up under $450. Here are 8 luxurious hotels you should keep an eye on for your next trip to Taiwan.
1) Boutix Resort Hotel Yehliu
98% of Expedia users recommend this hotel! Quiet and tranquil, offering you the convenience to get to the main city via public transport yet the exclusivity of the taiwanese coast line right at your hotel window. A stone’s throw away from Yehliu Geopark, pun intended. This is the hotel to stay at if you want to experience Taiwan for its geography and sights, yet enjoy the luxury and plush interior of the hotel.
2. La Maison
With its warm rosewood and French-luxe interior, La Maison is a dream to look at. Conveniently situated near numerous transport networks such as the Wende or Gangqian MRT stations, getting around the Taipei City area and its landmarks and attractions is an absolute breeze. I heard that the complimentary breakfast is absolutely fantastic as well - the perfect start to any morning!
3. Diary of Ximen
One thing I like about Diary of Ximen is how adorably whimsical the wall decorations are! Other than the interior, unlike most hotels, this one offers you a microwave oven and refrigerator at your convenience. Perfect for families with young kids who are picky eaters, or if you fancy a convenient midnight snack!
Located in Ximending, this hotel is within a 15-minute walk of Red House Theater, Presidential Office Building, and National Taiwan Museum, all landmarks you need to visit whilst in Taipei.
4. Taipei Ximending Muzik Hotel - Xining Branch
A cosy boutique hotel with only 20 rooms, enjoy your privacy to the fullest when you retire to your rooms at the end of the night. A no frills hotel, but excellent features such as a 24-hour business center, concierge services, and a computer station are available at this hotel.
Additionally, tour/ticket assistance, multilingual staff, and a front-desk safe are onsite. Located in Ximending, this hotel is within walking distance of Tianhou Temple and National Taiwan Museum.
5. Hotel Eight Zone
Fastest fingers first! A room at this hotel is currently on sale. Located in Zhongzheng, this hotel is within walking distance of Huashan Culture Park, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, and National Taiwan Museum. Taipei 101 and Taipei Botanical Gardens are also only 5 km away, easily accessible via public transport. Numerous convenience shops are located nearby for your perusal if you need late night snacks.
6. Royal Seasons Hotel
One of the most outstanding virtues this hotel possesses is its amazing customer service. Feel at at home and welcomed despite it being located right in the bustling western city district. The MRT station, Night Market, and Dihua Street are just less than 10 minutes away.
If you would like to explore even further outwards, the hotel provides free shuttle services to and from 2 other MRT stations, and to the Taipei Main station.
7. FX Hotel Nanjing East Road Branch
Strikingly purple and almost reminiscent of a discotheque, like any party location this 4 star hotel is situated in one of the most convenient spots in Taipei. Located in Zhongshan, it is within a 15-minute walk of Liaoning Night Market and Taipei Arena. Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and Taipei World Trade Center are also within 5 km. Which it’s accessible appeal and reasonable prices, it is quite a deal!
8) King National Hotel
Located in Ximending, this hotel is 2 km away from the Longshan Temple and Taipei Botanical Garden. With its quaint oriental features, it offers a feel of being in a Taiwanese drama (remember ‘爱’?)
