We had a 23-hr transit wait in TPE and was trying to decide between the options of staying in the transit hotel in the airport, staying in a hotel close to the airport or staying in a hotel in the city of Taipei, which is about 45min from the airport. We ended up staying in Hotel Orchard Park (10-15min from airport). We took all our lugguages to the hotel (didn't take the option to store them at the airport). The total cost of the taxi to the hotel was about NT$280. The front desk staff was very helpful. We thought we lost a piece of lugguage in the taxi the next morning, they helped us made multiple calls to the taxi companies to try to locate the taxi that we took. We should have asked for a receipt from the taxi driver or at least noted the taxi license plate information. The lugguage was actually lost and found later at the airport not in the taxi or the hotel.
Our room included breakfast buffet for 2. We were very satisfied with the buffet. We bought our lunch at the 7-Eleven & Family Mart located right across the street from the hotel. The food selections were sufficient for our needs. Both locations heated up food for us and we took the food back to the hotel. Both 7-Eleven & Family Mart also had small tables and seating area for customers to eat their food there.
The 2-Queen-Beds room we stayed in was clean and spacious. Beds and pillows were clean and comfortable. Shower and toilet areas were really nice and clean.
We used the pools (heated and one with lanes for swimming laps) and sauna (dry and wet) at the hotel. The pool area was very clean and the water was a lot clearer and cleaner than pools that I've seen in other places. We did have to pay for swim caps (NT$180 each). Without swim caps and swimsuits, customers are not allowed to use the pools. We didn't have to pay for swimsuits because we had our own. Since the swim caps are one size fits all, I hope they can offer renting of those swim caps for a small fee in the future. We did not use the spa.
The front desk extended our checkout time to 4pm because the hotel wasn't too busy and our flight was in the evening. We took the free shuttle (see the other review regarding their schedule) around 4:30pm to the airport. The driver was helpful and polite.
