“excellent hotel and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2011

This is a clean well appointed medium size hotel in a good location in central taipei. Its restaurant is also fine with good value excellent food for all meals. It appears to be recently renovated. The rooms are modern and quiet and well thought out but not large. Access to the metro is close and the airport bus stops right in front of the hotel doors. If you need a base to see Taipei this hotel is a good choice. If you want to have pool and grounds go elsewhere. The breakfast, in our case included, is an elaborate buffet. Both american and Japanese cuisine is available. The hotel staff is friendly, for the most part English speaking and helpful.

The facade of the building looks old, but do not be deceived. You are in for a surprise when you check in at Gala Hotel in Taipei. Past reviews about Gala Hotel guided me when I made my booking and I have no regrets staying in this hotel.

The rooms are just what they have posted on their websites. It has clean and complete amenities like any five-star hotel. The bathroom is very modern and the staff provides efficient and good service. There is Internet available in the room, but those looking for wi-fi access will have to go down to the lobby to avail of it. The staff are always ready to help you. They are hospitable and courteous. The use of the business center is free. You can access the Internet while having coffee or tea free of charge.

The location is good. It is quiet and it is close to the Xingtian Temple MRT station, which isnt always busy. So you won't get stressed going back to the hotel because the atmosphere is tranquil and serene. Across the hotel is a restaurant famous for its hotpot so make sure to check it out.

During our stay, the ground floor restaurant Golden Ear was always full during lunch and dinner. The hotel must have ran a promotion and it was always packed. We did not try it anymore since we have our daily breakfast there.

Our room reservation came with daily breakfast. They offer hard-boiled egg, scrambled eggs, sausages, ham, stir-fry cabbage, noodles, congee, miso soup, cereals, bread, rice, fruits, among others. It's complete and taste good, but you'll get tired of it after a few days.

The television unit in the room is quite small compared to other hotels that would have 24" TV or bigger. The other downside that I got with my room was the view. It was beside a building so we closed it with our curtains all the time.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay and it was worth the money we paid for.

I stayed for three nights at Hotel Gala. I had a Deluxe Standard room at the 9th floor. A spacious and bright room. The staff is very serviceminded and professionell. The breakfast is not to much to talk about for someone from Europe. But I'm sure the chinese liked it.The location is brilliant close to the subway and close to shopping and everything else!! Buses to the International Airport just opposite the hotel,. Brilliant!!

It is classified as a 3* hotel but to our pleasant suprise it was much better than that. The rooms and bathrooms are very modern (flat screen TV's) and spotlessly clean.The staff very efficient and helpful.The location was good - not too far from an MRT and a new one opening soon that's closer. Plenty of local eateries around.I expected some noise from the street (we are in tapei after all) but not a sound - excellent sound proofing from double windows. Breakfast buffet - plenty to choose from - asian and western taste both catered for. A very welcoming hotel and we had a very enjoyable stay.
