On our first visit to Taipei, we decided to stay at the Riviera. It is outside the traditionally 'touristy' areas of Daan and Xinyi - however it is closer to many of the great sightseeing spots and night markets. The service at the hotel was friendly and english was well spoken. It is close to the fantastic MRT rail system... More

As first time visitors to Taipei, we were guided to the hotel by our trusty travel agent as a good position to local transport, and not being in the middle of the city (Taipei 101) which we usually prefer. It was an excellent choice. The hotel is slightly dated in comparison to the W's of the world, but in that... More

Clean room, comfortable bed, good buffet breakfast, nice staff and a great roof top view in the fitness area. We were only there 2 nights. Easy to get around to other areas via the MRT right down the street across from the Expo Center. There is a small restaurant -- loved it www.dragon-yaki.com.tw. when you walk out of the hotel...

A bit of a mixed bag - very old fashioned, not particularly attractive but where it matters, this is a good hotel. Terrific staff, big room, very quiet and comfortable, excellent shower and lots of linen. A nice bonus was the roof top gym which was fairly well equipped and had great views of the city. Also, breakfast is very... More

The rooms are very adequate for either a couple or two singles. The heated toilet was a bonus. Breakfast, whcih was inlcuded, was excellent. Best of all are... More

Booked 7 nights stay at this hotel based on reviews. Was not disappointed. We had one of the deluxe suites on the 4th floor. Spacious living room, bedroom & bathroom. First impressions were excellent as we had arranged for the hotel to pick us up from the airport. Check-in was a breeze with very polite staff who have a good... More

When we rolled up to the front of the hotel, we were quite taken aback and thought that we had arrived at the wrong place! Upon entering the main door, we were pleasantly surprised by the doorman who not only opened the doors, took our luggage, took our passports to the front desk and seated us while we wait for...
