“beyond expectation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

The location is very good and near 101. The services are really very kind and nice, no matter room cleaners or the breakfast services, but also the swimming pool service. I love this hotel. Next time I will come and live again definitely.

Room Tip: higher floor rooms have better views

Hotel was clean and mostly comfortable. I know it is their brand style, but rooms are really more about form than function. I spent way too long trying to figure out how to turn on or off certain lights in the room (not to mention the automatic toilet!). I also didn't like trying to be upsold Fiji water (placed around the hotel room, with price tags) rather than letting me be satisfied with the free bottled water provided. Staff was friendly and helpful and the gym was well equipped. Apparently the breakfast buffet is included (or somehow I wasn't charged for it), but nobody mentioned that to me when I checked in and it was not on my travel agency confirmation. Location was also convenient to shopping, etc. A fine place to stay if you can deal with the funkier than necessary decor.

We stayed in W from 9 Nov to 13 Nov 2013 for holiday together with our little one.
Our first impression of the hotel when we reached from the airport is that it looks cool, dark and stylish. The staff at ground level were wearing all blacks, and seemed to be lack of smile.

Our check-in experience at level 10 was a breeze with friendly services and warmth smiles. There is a bar at level 10, together with the dim light and loud music.

Our room 2409 is nicely decorated with ample space for our family of 3 to move around. It overlooks the streets, Taipei traffic and skyline. The housekeeping crew were friendly and accomodating. We were surprised that the hotel does not charge for the porridges we ordered for our son. This indeed is a nice gesture.

Due to the strategic location, places like the 星光三越,Taipei 101, etc are within walking distance. There is a 7-11 across the road (in case like us, you need to print the High Speed Rail tickets that you have purchased online earlier), a few cafe and restaurants selling local food like 肉松馅饼,etc.

The Taipei City Train station is just opposite the hotel. There is a free 30-min shuttle bus service between the station and Taipei 101. The driver is a polite and friendly middle aged bespectacled man, who usually start his day from morning till night, and even have to eat inside the bus for his meals. So please be nice to him too.

At level 1 of the hotel, it is connected to a 7 or 8-storey Hankyu Shopping Centre (统一阪急百货公司)where it serves the need from young to old. At the basement level, there are quite a few restaurants and a foodcourt.

Overall, we are very satisfied with the hotel, its people and their sevices rendered. We would like to specially mention the counter staff at level 10, the servers from YEN Chinese Restaurant at level 31 (you want refer to our other review on it) and the housekeeping team. On a side note, yes, the male staff do look cool but certainly not too approachable.

This Hotel is simply awesome! the staff is super friendly and attention is paid to every detail. The rooms are great, the gym excellent. My Room was spacious and very modern, it was a splendid king room with a view of the Taipei 101. The amenities in the room are top of the line and they have those very cool automatic toilets. Rooms have Excellent TV with lots of English speaking channels (Fox News) great audio and plenty of western style power outlets that make working in your room simple and comfortable.
The hotel restaurant has the best breakfast buffet in an Asian business hotel I have been to in awhile.

Next time we are in Taipei will defiantly stay at the W.

Lives up to the W brand... I like its location especially since it is next to the 24 hour bookstore!
Rooms are spacious and I like the sitting area. There are also sufficient plug for business travel. The bar downstairs is slightly better than the upstairs one in my opinion cos I love those snacks they give you with the drink....
The pool is a bit "open" though so that anyone in the lobby bar can see you...

It was my first time in Taiwan and my stay became even more memorable by staying in this "cosmopolitan chic" hotel. Staff are all very friendly, accommodating from pushing elevator buttons for the guests; to assisting guests pack their souvenirs into boxes (one group of guests brought so many delicacies from a famous local bakery & the hotel staff helped to repack them neatly into boxes); to locating destinations or simply just greeting the guests with a warm, friendly smile. The lobbies are always with fresh apples for the guests. The rooms are aptly named "Fabulous", "Wonderful" and more (these are the two kinds we occupied). The hotel is accessible to many shopping places, restaurants, even the MRT. Bathroom facilities are really something else with the "rain type" shower and the push button bidet, dryer, flush, etc. Night life in this hotel seems bustling with fun & excitement in the WOO Bar. And if there's enough time, be sure visit WET- their inviting swimming pool.

With a big box souvenir and limited space. Eddie the concierge helps to repack the box for me and make sure my luggages are not overweight when I head to the airport. Very friendly and caring services. The room is clean and bright. Very comfortable staying.
