Great hotel, great location”

quiet, clean, comfortable bed

We stayed at the hotel for one night and were very pleased with it, then we went on a 5 day tour and stayed in another hotel on our return to Taipei but didn't like it at all, it was no comparison with the comfort at the Gala, so we booked the Gala again for the rest of our stay. The staff were helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very good but most of all we found the rooms very quiet and spacious with extremely comfortable beds. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again on my next trip to Taipei.

Comfortable Weekend Stay in Taipei”

Comfortable bed, a mix of local and western food on the breakfast buffet and the toilet had loads of buttons :-D

We stayed at the Gala Hotel over the first weekend of the new year (January 2 to January 4 - 2015)We left our booking rather late and were happy to find availability and a really good rate at this hotel. A room was ready for us on arrival at 1pm (2 hours before the standard check-in). Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the trip, greeting us and offering information and directions in English. The hotel and room were clean and comfortable, with a large double bed. Included in our rate was a buffet breakfast with a good mix of local and western food. There was a bit of noise from the corridor occasionally, but not enough for it to have been a problem. The hotel is located a short walk from the Metro station and was easy to find. It is located in a central part of Taipei with access to shops and transport. A good value for money hotel in a central location.

near MRT station and fast internet connection

we stayed 2 nights at Gala Hotel. orginally thought this was just a small hotel judging from the size of the lobby when we checked in. it turned out it was otherwise. staff were very courteous and accomodating. the room was of standard size. what i like most is the fast internetn connection. breakfast was good too. nearest MRT station is just 5 minutes walk and you can find 24hr convenient stores around. even starbucks is just around the corner. evergreen bus stop going to the international airport is just a few minutes walk along minsheng east road.

A Pleasant Taipeh Trip”

Gala Hotel had very very clean rooms especially bathrooms ; service very excellent ; staff very accomodating especially when helping us write down the places we were to visit.
Our stay included breakfast buffet....which needs improvement in the variety of offerings...

The Gala Hotel is a very pleasant hotel to stay in for a 4 to 5 day visit...It is very accessible to most places including a night market across the main street. Banks are found on both sides of the hotel as well as convenience stores. The Bus stop for the airport is just across the street. Thus making it highly accessible and one and use the bus or mrt system. Rooms are very clean and bathrooms are sparking clean. there are slippers and bathrobes too ! I would recommend this hotel to other travellers..

Gala Hotel Taipei”

Room was clean and modern, service was above average
Overcharged for laundry service, not the greatest location for access to the MRT system

I stayed at the Gala Hotel Taipei on 12-31-09 and was satisfied overall. The room was clean and modern, especially the bathroom that was the nicest I have seen in a Taipei hotel. I thought the service was above average and the staff quite helpful. I walked from the hotel to the Zhongshan MRT stop which was quite a distance. The only problem I had at this hotel was the cost to press a shirt for the evening (I did miss the laundry cutoff time of noon, by 15 minutes) I paid 750NT to press one shirt for the evening activities. This is USD 22, that seems quite high for one shirt to be pressed.

what a pleasant surprise!”

booking a hotel latish for the New Year period, Gala Hotel seemd to be the only one left, so I was a bit wary of what I would be getting for my money. I was pleasantly surprised. I found the hotel very well located to the airport bus, the staff were very friendly and their English skill was fine and their demeanour very welcoming. The rooms are large (I thought) and clean...and the bathroom was also clean, with a shower window into the living/sleeping area. Breakfast provided a large choice and the food was fine ( - I would like a waiter moving around with a coffee pot but that is being a bit lazy/spoilt!)
For the price, I couldn't think of any improvements - I even had an ice dispenser outside my room. I will stay there again when I am next in Taipei.

I enjoyed my stay there very much - for a mid-range hotel, I thought the service provided was friendly and competent - even the staff who couldn't speak English, made an effort to find someone who could help. The front desk was smiley and efficient. The room was clean and had everything you'd expect from a mid-range hotel eg. safe, coffee-making equipment, mini-fridge,...I will certainly stay there again when I am next in Taipei.

Good location with good price

This hotel is near the MRT subway, I walk only 3 minutes can arrive. Downstair of the hotel, has restaurants and 7 eleven is opposite of the hotel. McDonald is nearby , around 5 minutes walk. Everyday I go out shopping by MRT subway, it is very easy to go 101 tower, night market and Sogo shopping center. This hotel provides the breakfast is good and the bread is the one I most like. The service if hotel is very good and The reception always help me when I ask any enquiry. Next time if I go to Taipei, I shall choose this hotel again.

Nice business hotel, suited for holiday too”

rather near the mrt.

we stayed here for the new year's day holiday. had a pleasant stay. we didn't book the lowest priced room. i remember i booked one grade higher than the lowest priced room. and it turns out to be the corner room, with a view of taipei 101. the staff isn't exactly good with directions for tourists, but they are helpful, friendly and good with directions for things like how to go to the airport etc, things a businessman might need. still, it turns out the cleaning staff had the best tips for us, one man pointed out to us that there's a street market just a very short walk from the hotel, away from the nearest mrt, towards the next stop. and it was a good street, with plenty of food. too bad i can't remember the name now. but i hear the street is open in the late morning (good for lazy tourists) but doesn't open till late like some of the other night markets like shilin or raohe. still, it was a great find, and the food was good, good for a quick snack before heading off. the room was exactly as shown in the photo.

Cheap, Clean, Centrally located

I stayed for one night and probably this was the cheapest Hotel that I could have a single room in. Otherwise only hostels available. Breakfast is decent, room is small, but clean with small windows. However, it did not bother me. Bathroom is very nice, completely satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel for those who look for the cheapest option for a having a private room and breakfast. Location is awesome, 4 mins from Taipei Main station on foot.

Few minutes walk from MRT 行天宮站

Only a few minutes walk from the MRT 行天宮站, which is only 3 to 4 stations away from the Taipei Main Station. There are two convenience stores nearby. To find a resturant you might need to walk for 10 to 15 minutes which I think is acceptable. The hotel guys are generally nice and willing to offer help. The hotel room is a bit old but clean and comfortable. Strong Wifi signal. If you don't expect a big breakfast then the buffet provided should be good enough.

Hotel was very close (10 minute walk) from area we needed to be in. Rooms small but excellent and well appointed. Tianmu area bustling, I think it's the expats locale. Staff were from start to finish the best, they could not do enough for guests. The breakfast was one of the better versions you get in The Far East, bordering on excellent.
