International Hotel (Guo Ji Da Lui Dian): Hot springs hotel

This is a hot springs hotel located in the Yang Ming Shan area. I've actually never heard of this place (it's not listed in most tourist guides) if not for the Taiwanese family who brought me here to try out the hot springs. Apparently it's popular with families who drive up to for the weekend. There are Western style rooms and traditional Japanese style ones. We took the latter (quaint!) and spent about three hours there using the baths and having dinner. There's a public bath, or if you're shy about getting naked in front of strangers, a bath in every room that fits about two adults.

Enjoy a hot springs bath in tranquil mountain surroundings. If you go at the right time, the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Food is also a speciality of this place, including the hot pot (huo guo), which you can order up to your room. Having huo guo in winter, after you've taken your bath, is a fantastic experience.

China Trust Executive Suite (Beitou)

Another fantastic Five-Star hotel in Taipei, not far from the Pacific Wellness Center and Health Spa.

This was our second hotel stay of my trip.

This photo was from the observation deck looking down over the front entrance to the lobby!

The Monarch Plaza: Taipei, Taiwan

I have been here several times, whenever I go to Taipei, Taiwan I always stays here, not because I like it, its just that my company chose it for me.Anyway..the staff are friendly and offers a good service(well not all the time, since they discriminate guest). It is near to the city, supermarket, restaurants and you can easily take a bus or taxi going to anywhere you want just be sure you bring a copy of the hotels name in chinese so you know where to go back in case you get lost.The room is not so clean,maybe i rather say its not clean at all, you can still smell the scent of the last person who check-in there..thru pillowcase and beddings..hmm its so disgusting actually.

Unigue qualities..well this one is really unique,,I was getting my coffee from the coffee maker in the restaurant in their lobby when a small cockroach came out from one of the buttons of their coffee maker..I immediately report it to the manager and he just apologized but didnt do anything about it.I was hoping he will change the coffee inside.
While getting my breakfast from a buffet set up. I saw one big mouse passed under the table of breads and cereals..it was really big and i was so scared I almost drop the plate I am holding.
They really have a unique qualities.

Formosa Hostel and Formosa II: A small, supportive community

Well... Like everywhere I stayed in Taiwan the place was not completely clean. The garbage was taken out every night and thebathrooms were kept decent. But it was still dusty and there were bugs.... This is pretty much impossible to avaoid in Taiwan.
The common room had a notice board for telephone messages and Job postings, a pay-telephone , a television and a dining room table. There are many books available including some fiction and a Taiwan Lonely Planet and the people who stay there tend to stay a while (I was there for 4 months and some others had been there 4 years!!) Everybody was very understanding of what it is like to be nee and were more than happy to help you out with advice and directions.
This hostel is very close to 2 majjor department stores, a few parks and restaurants and the MRT. it is only 2 stops from Taipei Main Station so it is very walkable.
The owners name in Lin Tai Tai (Mrs. Lin).
The price per night is discounted if you stay for a week. if you stay longer the rent stays the same and you pay once a week.

I stayed at Formosa II.

Horng Gong Hotel

I stayed at the Horng Gong Hotel on Chang Chun Road. It had a nice large room and was in a good location, close The Zone and many of the major tourist sites such as the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. I paid about US$60 per night. It was also a relatively easy walk to the subway and the airport bus pickup and drop off location.

I booked the hotel room at the airport information desk after landing.

No Shortage of Accommodation

There are many good hotels from Low budget to luxury and most are centrally located. On my first visit to Taiwan I stayed at the Fortuna Hotel (Chungshun), a few blocks up from the Taipei Railway station. This was a tourist class hotel and very clean and tidy.

My next visit on partly business and I was booked into the Grand Hyatt - a very very nice hotel but further away from the city centre.

Not far from Taipei, at the highest point of the Northern Cross-Island Highway is Mingchr Lake, beautifully nestled amidst mountains and surrounded by old-growth cypress. A footpath around the lake, and lookout pavilions, make it easy for visitors to enjoy the scenery. Mingchr Hostel offers meals and accommodation in over 30 hotel rooms and 36 cabins.

This is 'Far Eastern international Hotel'!!!
It's a very good hotel in Taipei, beautiful, and you can have all kind of services there!!!

There are 47 floors in Far Eastern, and the best thing I think is, their summing pool in on the 46th, so, you could see the city view while you're summing!!!!
