    Elegant, a little austere”

    First time staying here - usually I choose less expensive hotels but had a business meeting. Hotel is elegant and they try really hard to make it feel luxurious. Room was large but slightly sparse; people tell me the hotel hasn't changed an iota in 20 years. Good for the right kind of business traveler.

    Great hotel & Amazing staffs”

    I stayed 2 nights with my friend for a weekend. the hotel was really nice, clean. the swimming pool was great as well. The staffs were REALLY REALLY friendly and helpful. I want to stay there again if i visit taipei. The only thing is that the hotel is not too close to the subway station but since taxi is cheap in taipei, there is no need to take subway much..

    Premium service, quality accommodation, excellent facilities”

    We stayed at Royal Nikko, W Hotel and the Shang-La on this trip and by far the Shangri-La was a stand-out. Just out of the city centre in a less noisy location but close enough to town when you need to go. The staff are very professional and focused on the guests. The VIP Lounge was very comfortable and the food great, the pool is on the top of the building with very nice views. The gym is large and full of quality equipment. We upgraded our room which was a smart decision, firstly because the lower price rooms were small with no view (be warned) but also because for the extra money we got a large room with great views and very nice amenities. More focused on business people than leisure but that suited us fine as the service levels and facilities were some of the best we have experienced.

    A good hotel ”

    We stayed there for almost a week. My 4 year old enjoyed the swimming pool & breakfast. It is within walking distance to local night market & some supermarket as well. 10 mins walking to the nearest MRT station. But unfortunately, my husband has a dust allergic when we stayed there. We can see the dust flying all over the room (I do not know it is because of the fabric they use for their bedcover or the room is just not very clean). Hopefully, they can look into this.

    Still one of the best in Taipei after all these years”

    Despite new five star international hotels springing up in Taipei in recent years after many years of zero development, Shangri-La in Taipei is still one of the best. Central, good location yet not too noisy and busy. Great service. The Chinese restaurant made room for us in another restaurant to have Chinese food eventhough theirs was full.

    Great location based on where I needed to be in the city. The staff performance was wonderful. The only negative I could think of was probably the food selection at the Cafe on 36th floor. It was fairly limited. Obviously, you were there for the view of the city.

Employees of this hotel are very good English speaker and you can communicate with them. This hotel is located in main area of Taipei city. so you can reach easily many attractive places.

    Very enjoyable stay! ”

    We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very well appointed, clean and a great size. The only comment we have is in regards to the breakfast restaurant on level 6 and that is that either there were not enough staff or just not very efficient but always very friendly. At certain buffet areas foods were not replenished and when asked the food took a very long time to be put out or it didn't come at all. We did think it was a wonderful buffet breakfast. Thank you.

    Good value for money”

    Efficient & friendly staff at reception who convinced us to upgrade our package to get Executive Club privileges. This was a pretty good suggestion as it was really pleasant to have breakfast in the Executive club lounge and enjoy the use of the wifi router! Location is good (many small restaurants/cafés and SPAs). Rooms are spacious and comfortable with (more or less) a view on Taipei 101 The only negative point is the swimming pool which is much smaller compared to what is shown on the hotel pictures. Also, plenty of kids playing loudly all around the swimming pool area (incl. inside the jacuzzi). Overall still a pleasant stay though.

    The hotel overall was great. But there were some points I hope they would consider. The fragrance they spray in the lobby is extremely overpowering. It's like being punched in the face with incense every time you walk through the entrance. I had to hold my breath every time I walked in.
