Getting to the hotel from Taoyuan airport is convenient. After coming out of the luggage collection, go one level down. There are several bus companies, look for the Taipei CitiAir Bus (DaYou) counter and purchase a ticket for Line 1960, which cost only NTD145. The journey takes about 40mins and drop right at the side of the hotel. Checking-in took... More

Excellent business hotel. Offers very good western style breakfast (also Chinese breakfast restaurant available). Many shops and restaurant in vicinity, as well as very close to MRT station. Friendly staff. Rooms are ok, suites are available. About 25 minute walk from Taipei 101.

Stayed 4 nights in a two single-bed room and a baby cot (travelled with two kids). Pro 1. Centrally located in between two stations (Zhongxiao Fuxing and Da'an). Both stations are about 7mins from the hotel; though unsheltered for most parts it's a brisk walk. The service lines will bring you to the main attractions like Taipei 101, Taipei main... More

It is one of the most well known hotel in Taipei. 5 to 10 mins walk to Sogo and zhongxiao fuxing mrt station. Hotel is huge and nicely decorated. I think the hotel breakfast buffet can be improved. There are little variety for 5 stars hotel buffet. The food also took long to replenish.

Howard Plaza was one of the earliest "5-star" hotels in Taipei. However this property has really gone downhill in the past decade or so. It really desperately needs an renovation. Location is probably the only advantage this property has. 5 minutes walk to two subway stations on blue, red and brown lines, and there are over 10 bus lines within... More

Okay, so the hotel needs some refurbishing (don't look too closely at the dirty chairs in the breakfast area). But the service is spectacular! Seriously, just ask and they'll do their best for you! I was surprised the hotel bills itself as a five star hotel, though. Maybe four? Wifi is EXCELLENT.

This was the first time back after about a year and the hotel yet again did not disappoint. I do remember the internet was a bit slow back then. Well not anymore!

I have stayed in this hotel many times. The manager CK, is a very warm, hospitable and knowledgeable person. His staff are extremely professional and helpful in every aspect of their profession.
