love breakfast here!The first impression was not quite right. Dark and small from the outside. Perhaps we were there during the halloween season, so everything was decorated as such. Dimmed lights with skeleton and scary atmosphere. But the real experience was quite the opposite. The hotel is quite chic and boutique, yet upto international standard. They even offer a 3 michelin chinese cuisine which we missed, unfortunately. The room is all right, wisely designed with a bit of confusing lightings. What we enjoyed the most was breakfast. Quite a wide range, especially Asian. Location is perfect as it's connected to the department store and is right at the city centre.

Clean Hotel with Great ServiceI stayed at this hotel for 3 days for my business trip. The location was very great and the room was very clean. They have very good customer service. The front office Duty manager Beatrice Wang was soooooo nice and kind to me. She explained everything in details and I had no trouble at all while staying in Taiwan.
Moody atmosphere, great serviceI booked for a four night stay here earlier this month. Service was excellent, from the chauffeur service, to the moment I stepped foot outside the hotel, I was already greeted by Palais de Chine staff; my luggage was whisked off to my room and I was also brought straight to my room. I did my check in inside the room which was quite convenient since I arrived past 9pm already. Bed linens were nice and comfy, as were the towels in the bathroom. Interesting tub, I used it for 2 nights to soak before taking a proper bath in the separate shower area. I liked that the toilet was the Japanese type, Toto if I'm not mistaken. The layout of the room is fine with me as I was travelling solo; might be a bit awkward for two if you weren't a couple because to close off the shower/bath tub part, you could just pull out curtains; but then the wash basin would not be accessible. Closet space was excellent, glad that there was a proper closet and full sized mirror. Impressed with the number of charging ports/plugs; very very friendly to those with a lot of electronics that require charging. Chaise lounge was nice enough and had a small cocktail table beside it. Cute veranda/balcondy with a great view. Location excellent as it was beside a mall/bus station and near the train station; also most of the time, taxis were available outside the hotel. Suggestion though to add more potlights overhead? To me I did not mind the moody ambiance but I had other friends who also stayed at the hotel and thought it was a bit scary. Housekeeping was excellent; when I asked for ice and other items, it was delivered within minutes, plus I never had to ask for extra bottled water as it was always refilled even without my request. Suggestion to get rid of the red velvet decorative pillows on the bed, as it's always more elegant anyway to have crisp, white linen. The 16F lounge was quite nice though I was only able to visit it once for that trip. Unfortunately when I stepped out to check out the outdoor area, my foot slipped in between two tiles and it damaged one of my Puma x Karl L. shoes. Other than that, I really didn't have any other negative experience. The breakfast area, was pretty dark because the lights were purple in the chandeliers (was that just for Halloween? I'm not sure), So maybe the lights shouldn't be Too moody/dark during breakfast? Food selection was good. Lastly, the front desk and concierge were also very good, I was able to settle my bill the night before checking out.
First visit to TaiwanJust returned from an 8 day trip to Taiwan. Really had an excellent time at the Palais De Chine (PDC) in Taipei. We arrived very early after a long overnight flight from Toronto. The MRT express was a piece of cake to get us to the Taipei main station, take the Purple express train, there are only 3 stops to get you into town within 36 min. Just like the Swiss, the trains run perfectly on time. The website for PDC gives very clear specific instructions on how to get to the hotel via the underground walkways. When we arrived the reception checked us in quickly and they were easy to communicate with us in English. Unfortunately, our room was not ready but we expected this, it was 6 am in the morning. They were able to safely store away our luggage, provided us with some water. Right next door to the PDC is the Q Square mall. It is full of shop, food and connects you back to the Taipei Bus Station, MRT and the High Speed Train station. Right next to it is the Taipei City Mall which is full of small shopping stalls and food stands. very convenient. We were able to find some breakfast and coffee before returning later to the hotel. The is a business center with sofa's and coffee so we ended up hanging out there til our room was ready. The Senior Guest Manager, Amy Wu personally took us up to our room and gave us a great tour of the room and its amenities. In addition, she was so kind to have a cake and bottle of wine for my wife and I, fruit and decorations to help us celebrate our anniversary!! Really above and beyond Amy, thank you so much!! She provided us with her cell number and was super helpful with advice for day trips and helped with restaurant recommendations and reservations. She checked up on us discreetly through out or trip as well. When we left she personally saw us off and sent us on our way with a complimentary car to the MRT Airport Express station! Overall this was a great trip, the room was all we needed, comfortable and quiet. We were there when a typhoon hit Taipei and although we could watch the rain and wind through our window, it was quiet in our room. Very secure. The breakfast was also excellent, lots of choice with either Western Style food or Taiwanese congee, noodles, pork buns. All excellent, great coffee too! We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we return to Taipei, it is very convenient to all public transport and the service was fantastic, 5 STARS!!
