“Well and nice located hotel”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

After a sojourn in Beitou we booked this hotel based on tripadvisor comments. The outlook and service are excellent. Great welcome, great service. We booked a room on the 7th floor. It was large but the bathroom. There was a front desk (large room), then the bathroom (so small) and the bedroom which was smaller that the office. It did not really matter as the bed was very good. View was just ok as we were facing some renovations.
About the bathroom, i wonder how a hotel of this standing could have such a small one. Very small bathtub, small area barely enough space for one. If there is one weak point, that is the one.
Breakfast was an excellent buffet with multiple choice.
The surrounding of the hotel is ok with many spas and massages around it. It is also 5 mns away from the bus terminal to the airport (45 mns by bus for 140 ntd against 1000 by taxi). Opposite to the hotel, there is a big empty park with so called some exhibitions with no interest unless you want to see all the Taiwenese inventions (tv/mobile/vaccum cleaner, washing machine, bikes and so on). About 20 mns walking, there is the national museum.

This is a very nice property, well looked after and with very large rooms.

Also, the shuttle buses to various parts of Taipei are extremely convenient and well timed.

The breakfast buffet was also very nice with lots of options.

The only disadvantage is that the hotel is a bit far from the nearest MRT station - about a 10-15 minute walk, but cabs in Taipei are not very expensive.

Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Fantastic hotel--a highlight of our trip! The amenities and size of the rooms were great. Our family of five easily shared two rooms. The beds were comfortable and the hotel provided extra bedding and pillows. The amenities were just right. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the servers were very attentive. We highly recommend this hotel!!!!

Room Tip: Triple rooms include two beds.

Five star business hotel. The room was smaller than expected, there was an office. Excellent breakfast buffet included, great service, friendly staff. Wifi is the rooms often loses it's signal, there could have had more channels available on the television. Very helpful staff, clean room.

Stayed at the Taipei Riviera for 3 nights in mid-February. Our stay was great from start to finish -- convenient location, room and bath clean and tidy, hearty breakfast. Most memorable was the staff -- professional, informative, and welcoming. Fun "neighborhood-y" feel to the location, a quick walk to restaurants, shopping, the Metro and city. We will keep this on our list of favorites.

Hi please see earlier review of hotel this is for cafe - excellent and great cakes and coffee - some of the best in the district ! I'd suggest you try it. You can see by the pictures the quality of the cakes. Not the best ambience around but the good makes up for it !!!!!!

Only stayed 1 night because my "main" hotel was full. From the moment I got out of the car and into reception I knew this was a nice hotel. And at a very reasonable price on the net.

Great room, very spacious. Free wifi. Modern and clean. Very good breakfast with the best bacon I have had in Asia

Not an international 5* hotel but real top of the range just below that. It is relatively small so you are known and looked after.

Great restaurant as well (separate review)
