I am travelling to Taipei about 4-5 times a year on business. Stayed in many hotels before (i.e. LeMeridien, Grand Hyatt, Howard Plaza). This time, because of a mess-up by my secretary with the booking I booked myself online at Park Taipei on short notice (1 hour before check-in). Despite the short-notice, check-in was smooth and fast as everyting was prepared already.
Since the room was not ready (around 11am) they let me use the exec. lounge until I could move in. Rooms are not fancy and geared towards efficiency and therefore perfect for business travellers. The desk has a decent height, plugs are easy to reach on top of desk and 1 world traveller plug is available as well. Both room and bathroom were super-clean, perfect water pressure and enough warm water. Breakfast is reasonable, with fresh fruits and a decent variety of warm and cold platter choices; comparable to European hotels but not as sumptuous as in the big Asian 5-stars. A great advantage of the hotel is also the central location and there is an access to Da'an MRT station (only 2 stops away from 101!) right in front of the hotel.
The best part of this hotel are however the staff. Always very helpful, super-friendly and with a true service spirit. Despite I am a seasoned Asia business traveller used to the high service standards everywhere, I find that the folks at this hotel really stand out. Probably also because they delivered quite consistent from receptionist, concierge, cleaning lady to waitresses and they seem to actually "mean" it!
HIghly recommended for business travellers looking for efficiency, great service, cleaniness and convenient location but don't care for status and extravaganza. I will definitely be back. Thanks to everyone for your hospitality!
