Where to stay in Taipei - Madison Taipei

Madison Taipei

The tranquil vibe of the Madison Taipei is especially enjoyable because it is so centrally and conveniently located. With plush suites going by names such as Oasis Greenview, and features such as natural wooden floors and heavenly velvet slippers, it won’t take you long to unwind. They also employ dedicated hotel “ambassadors” who are always around to tend to guests’ every need, but are especially helpful for suggesting travel itineraries in the surrounding area.

Insider Tip: Guests staying in the Skyline Suite or Madison Suite can enjoy the pretty view of the Sky Garden on 13th floor, as well as a sweeping city panorama.

Where to stay in Taipei - Amba Hotel Taipei

Amba Hotel Taipei

    Taiwan’s first homegrown design hotel is in the trendy downtown Ximending district, and prides itself on the three C’s: Creativity, Connectivity and Conservation. From the view outside – a 10-storey charcoal-coloured building in a triangular pattern – to the sleek Wallpaper magazine-approved interior, every effort has been made to ensure a stay outside of the standard. Tingba, the hotel’s bar, which means “listen” in Mandarin, is the place to go to hear cutting edge local DJs and unwind with a stiff drink.

    Insider Tip: For an evening aperitif, order the fabulous Amba Old Fashioned made from orange and bacon infused bourbon, house made bitters and hand-chipped ice cubes.

    Where to stay in Taipei - Eclat Taipei

    Eclat Taipei

    The elegant hotel Eclat has a prized, prestigious location in the Daan district, and makes the most of it. Art fans will be thrilled to discover their collection, which includes pieces by masters no less esteemed than Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Gao Xiao Wu. The best place to enjoy the works is the Eclat Lounge, a fine place to feast on one of their gourmet breakfasts. The hotel’s 60 guest rooms come with avant garde design touches, top-of-the-range technology and goose down duvets you won’t want to get out of.

    Insider Tip: The Premier 9 room comes with an elevated “stage” bathroom, with views across Taipei, and a sunken bath with Jacuzzi.

    Where to stay in Taipei - Okura Prestige

    Okura Prestige

    The Okura Prestige Taipei is located in the Zhongshan area, the centre of the city’s finance industry, so it’s a great pick if you’re travelling on business. But it’s never all work and no play. As well as three department stores within a five-minute walk, you’ll also find the stylish designer boutiques of Chi-feng Street. If you’d rather chill out in the hotel on your down time, there’s the Aqua health club complete with rooftop pool, a gym and personal trainers on hand to help you get the most out of your workout.

    Insider Tip: For the best city views, go for the Premium Prestige room.

    Where to stay in Taipei - W Taipei

    W Taipei

    As with all hotels in the brand, W Taipei is not just somewhere to sleep but a hip place to hang out. Nevertheless, as the hotel’s design theme is “Nature Electrified”, the guestrooms remain quiet sanctuaries filled with natural materials, lush amenities and modern conveniences. There are eight room types from Spectacular, with its Taipei 101 view, to the extra luxe Extreme WOW Suite. Socialising and cocktail culture are very much part of the package when you check in here, so don’t miss Mojito Monday at Woobar where your Mojito is upgraded from a glass to a pitcher. Instead of the regular, try Apple Saffron flavour.
