We were overnighting in Taipei before catching our continuing flight the next day and decided to stay in nearby Taoyuan instead of a hotel in Taipei.
I decided on the Holiday Inn Express but did not expect very much and we were so pleasantly surprised. The staff were very warm and friendly. We booked two rooms over the hotel website and because I could only book one at a time via points redemption, I think the system did not link the two bookings, but it was no problem for the reception to get us adjoining rooms. But please note, there is no connecting rooms in this hotel.
I found out the hotel is new and it is certainly very modern. We like the use of space and the clean modern feel of the rooms. Although it is an Express hotel, we didn't feel we were slumming! The bathrooms were very well done, no bathtub, but good shower equipment, not cramped and almost luxurious in feel.
My boys enjoyed the flat screen TV and the loads of cable channels, of course, helpful if you knew Mandarin. There is free internet connection.
But the big surprise was the breakfast. We expected simple fare but there were some hot dishes, fruit, at 6:20 am, it was wonderful.
Again, I must commend the staff for their warm smiles and friendliness.
