I stayed in Monarch Plaza during my recent business trip to Taiwan. The hotel is located about 1/2 hr by taxi from the Taoyuan Airport. It is not exactly an airport hotel. The street around the hotels are mostly residential. As far as I can tell there are no major tourist attractions nearby.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful but most of them did not speak English very well.
The room I had was clean and very comfortable. I liked the fact that there was a wifi router in my room. I checked the internet speed and it was 20Mb download and 7Mb upload, the fastest I have seen in any hotels I have stayed and it was free. The TV had tons of channel but most of them were in Chinese but it did have the usual CNN and BBC etc.
The breakfast buffet catered mostly for Chinese taste which was fine by me since I am Chinese but the food was cold even early in the morning. The western items were okay but nothing to write home about.
The hotel also had a Chinese and Japanese restaurant. I only tried the Chinese one and I think the food was a little greasy. There were many restaurants near the hotel so there are other dining options available.
I wouldn't say you should go out of your way to stay in this hotel but if you are doing business in Taoyuan area, the Monarch Plaza is a good choice.
