It features the stylish Woobar that’s perfect for socialising with a cocktail in hand, an outdoor pool 10 storeys above ground, a luxurious spa and more.

Pro tip: The real lobby is located on the 10th floor - the first floor is just an arrival area.

2. Grand Hyatt Hotel

Also located in Xinyi and right at the foot of Taipei 101 is the Grand Hyatt. There's a photo op at every turn and there's no lack of entertainment (and good food!) at this classy hotel, with international singers performing daily at Ziga Ziga restaurant and live piano performances at Cha Lounge.

Price: Approx. $303 USD per night 

3. Le Méridien Taipei

Here’s yet another pick in Xinyi! The modern Le Méridien Taipei is equipped with impressive facilities, including a gym and lap pool, along with contemporary perks like rainforest showers and compact virtual office hubs.

4. Mandarin Oriental Taipei

One of the most prestigious hotels in Taipei, Mandarin Oriental features exquisite interior design and even more exquisite (read: top-notch) service. Rest assured, all the details are done right here.

It’s definitely a place for those who wish to splash out on your holiday. From the elegant Cafe Un Deux Trois to the high-end perfumery Fueguia 1833, this hotel is perfect for those looking for exclusivity and luxury.

5. The Regent Taipei


Classy dark wood interior and muted hues add to the sophisticated decor of the Regent Taipei, and you can expect lots of marble in the bathrooms too. Plus, this swanky hotel is huge - it houses seven luxurious restaurants, and is attached to the Regent Galleria shopping mall.

Suffice to say, you can find just about everything you need without setting a single foot outside the building!
