Grand Formosa Regent
Ranked #15 of 585 Hotels in Taipei
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Although I encountered a problem when I made my reservation which took me 2 days calling and emailing to solve the problem, Mr. Scott Sun has promised me to have a smooth check in upon my arrival. Arriving earlier than the regular check in time at around 11 am, I thought I was going to be told that the room was not ready. However, room is already ready! Room is very spacious and clean of course. There were welcome fruits but too bad I am very lazy to eat it.

It is not the most convenient location, however, taxi to the Taipei station is very cheap or we just walked 5 mins to the closest station. There is a very small local department store in front of the hotel.

The breakfast was also delicious and soooo many choices! My friend has coffee and the waitress just keep on refilling her cup of coffee which has milk in it when it is still half fulled.

We also tried the spa on our last night. It was fabulous. You had your own room for changing/steam shower/ bath/ massage. The staff was preparing the bath by the end of the massage but unfortunately the water was not hot enough for me. I wish she has asked me how I wanted it. At the end of the massage, they will serve some tea and some sweets/sandwiches which is very nice. I would definitely go back for the spa!

Just a question on the room type, seems like it is very difficult to find a twin bed room? I went through many different websites and only found 1 site that offers twin room...

Dear Rita L
Great comments ! Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your visit in detail. Regarding your query on room types, we do have twin rooms posted but if we are experiencing high occupancy during a particular date the room type will be closed out on the web. If you do experience any issues in the future please do not hesitate to contact our Reservation Manager, Scott on scott.sun@fihregent.com. Look forward to seeing you on your next visit and will change the fruit to chocolate !!
With kind regards

Many restaurants and shopping sites nearby. Nice and helpful staff. Very good breakfast with a lot of choices. Comfortable room. A very pleasant stay. Taking a coach to Taipei Main Station at TWD125 each from airport and then take a taxi there, only at TWD70. Strongly recommended.

Each time in Taipei I used to stay at Regent Taipei for my business trips. The superior room still fantastic and breakfast outstanding. The service has been impeccable everywhere: courtesy, friendly and efficient. A particular note to the food of the Teppanyaki restaurant, a must.

Just been in this great hotel again
Taipan staff, service and rooms are all what you can expect in this centraly located hotel.
The inside of the hotel is not to be confused with the outside which looks a bit outdated
I will stay again and with pleasure in this hotel for my next visit to Taipei.
Just 2 remarks
Why have you put some blinds on the windows of the Taipan club? It is not necessary on a cloudy day and certainly not at night
but hide the view over Taipei and the 101
On arrival a member of the staff did open the door of my car but no one did seem to bother about my luggage

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days during a business trip. My room was located at Taipai Residence floor (18&19th). The location is very good and is well connected. The hotel is very comfortable, with large rooms and marble bathrooms. The cleanliness is excellent. Breakfast buffet, which included everything, is excellent: all kinds of sweets, cakes, a lot of Chinese and Japanese dishes such as soups, meat, fish and vegetables. Many dishes such as omlette are freshly prepared on demand. The staff is extremely kind, always smiling and professional. Fantastic! Try it!

Room Tip: I strogly suggest Taipai rooms for business men.

It was a short stay, which was only two nights, but I enjoyed and relaxed so much.My room had nice night view from 18 floor and enough space, in addition, I could use any service by my language, which is very comfortable.

Room Tip: Recommend to stay higher floor, you can enjoy nice night view of Taipei.
