The Miramar Garden Taipei is rated as a 4 star hotel, but it has amenities and fine service worthy of a high-end 5 star hotel. Tops on this list is an amazing spa with cold and hot soaking pools, steam and dry rooms, surrounded by a lush indoor rock garden with a waterfall. This is a great place to relax after a workout in the superb, glass-walled fitness center overlooking an outdoor 25 m Olympic size lap pool with an adjoining sun deck. In all, this is one of the finest health club facilities I've seen and a genuine surprise considering the rest of the hotel is relatively modest in decor and scale.
The rest of the hotel is excellent throughout, with finely appointed, spacious rooms, warm and attentive service, and a good breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet is relatively simple in terms of selection, but all of the basics are there and the food is fresh, tasty, and of excellent quality. Part of the restaurant has a very nice view of an outdoor garden.
Drawbacks? They are now charging for internet access, a relatively steep 250 NT for 24 hours of access and only 1 device at a time, so in this day and age when you carry multiple devices that can access WiFi (laptops, iPads, etc) you must pay an access fee for each device. The location of the Miramar leaves something to be desired, in the middle of a residential neighborhood with virtually no good eating establishments nearby and a long walk from the nearest MRT station. However, taxi's are always waiting at the hotel, probably because they know few guests will want to walk around the hotel.
In all, I would come back to the Miramar Taipei just for the health club facilities but would have reservations about its location.
