“Really good hotel - a couple of minor improvements to reach great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I've had extended stays at this hotel and really enjoy it. The rooms are super comfy - love, love the pillows!!! The bathroom includes a nice tub and a separate shower. There is a lot of storage space in the room - good closet space and two sets of extra drawers. It is very close to a mall with lots of different restaurants (very few take credit cards - be aware before you order). The staff is very attentive - they will grab elevators, grab plates at dinner, and respond right away to requests. The TV has lots of American Channels - probably the best I've seen in my international travels.

Improvements: the swimming pool is a lap pool and the exercise area is really small. They serve a decent breakfast, but doesn't change much (and if you want eggs, you need to grab a card with the type of eggs and make sure you find a server - if you leave it on the table, you won't get your eggs). Room service is pretty bad - especially for the price. The wifi could be better - it cuts out a lot.

Conclusion: I would definitely stay here again. The location is great. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. If they added a pool and improved the menu, I would absolutely love it!

Room Tip: The view of the mall is better than the other side.

I have a little time to stay in this hotel cause I have to catch the plane. But, this hotel is very well decorate. Great restaurant. Locate near shopping mall. And, have large room and full of facilities. It's one of the best hotel locate near airport. I love it.

Spacious, clean and comfortable room. Friendly and helpful staff. Very convenient location: 10 minutes drive to the International airport. Near by a large shopping mall (with many restaurants and cinemas) and a 24 hour seven-11 store. Five to 10 minutes walk to many road side restaurants and local delicacies. Suitable for different kind of tourists. Restaurants in the hotel (one serves Chinese cuisine, another serves Japanese cuisine) are excellent. However, compared to other 4~5 star hotels in Taiwan, the breakfast needs improvement.

Situated in the centre of Taoyuan and between a 7/11 and the Tai Mall this hotel was ideal for my business trip.

The room was very good. Roomy, clean and with everything I needed for a comfortable stay. I particularly liked the pillows and the bed was big enough to accommodate a small family.

The WiFi is a little eccentric. But it worked when I was sat at the desk so ok there.

The staff were very friendly and all essential staff spoke good English.

I only ate breakfast in the hotel and this was an intestine experience. The coffee was excellent the food an interesting mix of East meets West. Pizza and Spaghetti Bolognaise rubbed shoulders with the more conventional fruits and pastries.

The bar boasts the most uncomfortable bar stools I have ever sat on. And there is a pervading odour of drains. But, the beer is cold and the batman accommodating. Watch out though, they close promptly at midnight and no warning is given.

I will be returning to Taiwan and will be staying in this hotel. I am looking forward to both.

Room Tip: The executive rooms are excellent value especially those located on the front of the hotel

I stayed many times in this hotel, last time in April 2013 for three nights - always for business. The room is clean and functional, the breakfast is excellent, the staff is helpful and speaks English (this alone is a big advantage!). The hotel is located about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport - and this is yet another big advantage. The hotel is located next to the big shopping mall called Tai Mall - but this is the only main attraction in the neighbohood, if I want to visit Taipei or any other tourist attraction - I usually move to another hotel in Taipei-city, as getting from Taoyuan to Taipei might take an hour or more due to heavy traffic.

The Monarch Skyline is situated in the center of Taoyuan almost adjacent to the Tai Mall. In fact, if your taxi driver does not know the hotels English name then ask for the Tai Mall and you will get there. With the Mall at your back It is 50 meters to your left a long the main road. It's about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi.

When going to back to the airport, don't reserve a taxi with the hotel as you will get a hotel car and will pay 2x a taxi fare. They can call a regular taxi for you when you need one.

The hotel is quite new but has an old feel. I personally don't like the dark corridors but the rooms are bright and clean. The exercise room is small and not well equipped, and when I was there most of the treadmills were not working.

The Mall is great for food. Go to the top floor and try one of the many small restaurants up there. Reasonably priced and convenient. For bar food and sport viewing go to the three baboons bar on the ground floor of the Mall.

The breakfast buffet is improbably the worst I have seen in any hotel of this class in Taiwan.

The staff are very helpful and friendly.

One note: no wireless in the room but free wired internet. Take your own router if you only have wireless devices or rely on wireless for your phone.

The room I stayed in was huge and very well equipped. The staff were always very friendly, and enough english was spoken to make my stay a lot easier.

The elevators can be a bit slow at busier times, but the very 'interesting' Christmas music more than made up for the wait.

The hotel is right next to a big mall. The mall itself is no different from one in the US/UK - but the sports bar is very convenient, and a lot of the staff spoke english.
