      Grand Hotel”

      Stunning traditionally designed Chinese Hotel. Built by Chiang Kai Chek as a showpiece and it is truly elegant and beautiful. Didn’t have enough time to try out the many facilities but would definitely come back.. only issue is its isolation but they have shuttles and a bus to the airport and a lot to do at the hotel. Great views too.

      Totally different room type upon my arrival and the booking via Agoda.”

      The check in counter said Agoda book me a Mountain Deluxe room. However, I actually pay higher to book the Horizon City View room via Agoda. Is there something wrong in Agoda Reservation ? It is totally disappointed and highly recommended you to double confirm with Agoda to mark everything in the confirmation sheet explicitly and confirm in advance before you go. The Grand Hotel Taipei is great and very clean. There is always performance in the lobby. An memorable experience !

      Gym and Swimming Pool are far away from main hotel. You need to take a bus to the Yuanshan MRT Station and many times, the bus is filled by the local (not hotel guest) Hotel Café crowded with local having tea after strolling at the hill behind the Hotel Building. Many tourist from outside visited the hotel lobby for the extraordinary architecture and always crowded with group tourist. Morning Breakfast, very crowded but have a very widespread. Room is small.

      Great hotel, but...”

      I loved the architecture, but that was all. Breakfast gets great reviews, but I am European, and except the omelet, nothing else appealed to me: the bread, cheese, and fruit selection is poor (few assortments of fruit, unhealthy cheese, and some buns or monkey bread) and the yogurt is the sweetened type. I paid a lot because it was on the site, but I recommend looking for healthier options somewhere else. There is a large selection of Asian food, but nothing seemed healthy to me, except for some veggies maybe (few though). On top of that, starting with the second night I got some red itchy bumps on my body that became worse on the following days.. I do not know whether they are from the hotel room or pool, or even food. I ate out a few times but only cooked meals, so I doubt I have them from anywhere else.

      Stayed here with my family for 5 nights. Amazing location and gargantuan facility offer many places for photos and exploring. Overall attentiveness of elderly staffs are good but younger ones in operations like front desk could be better. Food tastes good, especially the Chinese restaurant. Highly recommended hotel and will definitely revisit.

      Architecture and view”

      Grand architecture and grounds. With the right rooms you get incredible views. However the carpets are stained, and some areas look a bit tired. It's not dirty and no mold smell, but it's not up to 5 star standards. The truth is the grandioseness of the place overcomes this detail. Recommended if you want a quintessential grand Chinese experience.

      Grand by name, grand by nature”

      Extraordinary hotel, with much history to enjoy. We stayed in the cheapest option, an inner windowless room, but although was small, it was quite acceptable - just needed to set our alarms to wake up. The breakfast is OK, but its much better value to walk down the hill to the Louisa coffee shop near the station. Shilin Market is close by, and there are lots of eating options. You can walk thorough the park surrounding the hotel, and there is a swimming pool. Secret tip: on the second floor, there is a huge balcony that overlooks all of Taipei. No-one ever goes there, but any guest of the hotel can use it.

      Very historical”

      I took the MRT from the Main train station and got off at Jiantan station. It was about a 15 minute walk to the Grand Hotel. This is not recommended if you have suitcases. The shortcut has you climbing many steps. The hotel also has a shuttle service to Yuanshan MRT station with shuttles leaving every 30 minutes. Like most hotels there are different size rooms. The Grand Hotel also has an annex called the Chin-Lin annex. If you want a room in the main building don’t choose the annex. The remodeled rooms are more of a simplified elegant versus being ornate. Some original elements still exists such as the wood floors and the night stand between the two beds. There is a cash mini bar and the usual toiletry amenities. Two breakfast locations are available. On the main floor is the Asian and Western buffet. On the 10 floor in the Prestige Lounge is what they call the Muslim breakfast. I found the Prestige Lounge to be not very crowed and with great views. If you don’t need your ham or bacon in the morning, the Prestige Lounge is a good choice. On the 10 floor is also a small fitness room. There is also an outdoor swimming pool.

      Wow!”

      Lots of history in this hotel! I stayed in one of the Chi-Ling rooms for two nights and was not disappointed with the high standard of cleanliness and comfort in the room which also had a nice view of the 101 building and city from the balcony. The room felt brand new with a great shower and separate bathtub. Television had all the movie/news channels and the wifi worked extremely well/fast. Check-in was smooth as was check-out. The only possible negative is the location which, given the hotel's premier status and beautiful surroundings, is understandably slightly inconvenient, but there is a free shuttle to the nearest MRT stations as well as taxis on standby. The free museum and photo gallery give you a good idea of the hotel's storied history, but I also saw Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen, passing in the lobby. 9.5/10

      The room we had has a view of the mountain, the river, the city and Taipei 101. It was in one of the best location in the hotel. The hotel facade and balcony looks palacial. The room we stayed was great. The bathroom was big and updated. It was almost like a royalty room if the bed was a King size and chairs and tables at the balcony. The hotel was grand by its scale and feels very oriental. I would highly recommend this place.

      Real Gem of a place to stay”

      We hesitated to stay in this hotel as it gave an impression of an old school hotel which needed updating. However due to its history and location, we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised and really happy to have chosen to stay here. The rooms bathrooms were newly updated and modern, suitable parts of the room that linked it to its history is still maintained. Rooms were good sized and had wonderful unblocked views with a massive balcony to boot. While you may find that the location is not as close to the MRT, the hotel offers regular, complimentary transfers to nearby stations so you still are connected. The venue also has a nice neighbourhood and is close to Shiling Market etc. My family and I enjoyed our stay and wished we stayed here earlier ! I would recommend it !

      The room is spcious and clean. The service is excellent. AS the hotel is located at the top of a mountain, the view is good. The drawback is the the need of better transport and often the use of taxi to come back to the hotel in the evening.
