“Best choice near Taipei airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2007

We had a 12-hour layover in Taiwan (CKS airport) this June and asked a Taiwanese friend where to stay near the airport. We mentioned several names listed on Trip Advisor. He advised either the Evergreen Transit hotel at the airport or the Monarch Plaza in the nearest City, Taoyuan. The Transit hotel never responded to our e-mails; the Monarch did, promptly, efficiently, and with good English, so the choice was easy.

The Monarch is less than a 20 minute ride from the airport. It is a modern hotel, which during our visit was hosting air crews from Singapore, Thai and several other airlines. The desk staff spoke English well and were efficient, and the hotel was overall good quality. We had a drink in the bar (using the welcome coupon), a nice bath, good nights’ sleep and decent breakfast, checked our e-mail on the free Internet, and headed back on the road in great shape.

We had the basic quality room, and it was not large by western standards, but not cramped. Nice TV and Internet access, but the room itself was in need of updating. Still it was clean, comfortable, quiet and we weren’t expecting a high end resort! As noted the breakfast was decent – not as lavish as we have had in some Asia hotels, but perfectly ok and came with the room.

In a major Asian city we would probably give the Monarch a 3 rating, for being comfortable but nothing special. But here, convenience to the airport is special, and for that reason and given the good level of comfort, it gets a 4. For us, it is now an easy decision where to stay if we layover in Taipei again.
