The Grand Hotel is a Taipei landmark, it's almost impossible to miss it. The Grand has an Old Worlde atmosphere that on encounters in great hotels such as the Peninsula in Hong Kong. The Grand is self-consciously Chinese. The Grand is famous for its food, I have dined in its restaurants many times. Its Northern Chinese cuisine is exceptional. The Grand has a colour theme in red.-- red is the lucky colour in China. The rooms get mixed reviews. The Grand is at the top of Chung Shan North Road. It's a bit out of town, but taxis are cheap and buses are even cheaper.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the road

The entrance into this grand edifice is most impressive. It is a traditional Chinese style of enormous proportions. Walking into the hallway flanked by tall red pillars is like entering a very different world. You are greeted by an enormous floral arrangement in the centre and a wide ceremonial staircase that leads to the mezzanine. Bell staff efficiently take charge of you and carry your bags up to your room with grace. While the decor is eye catching, and the historic sections of the hotel are very interesting, no effort has been spared to make the accomodations comfortable. I had a balcony room with outstanding views of the city. The room was tastefully decorated and spotless. Housekeeping is very thorough.
The breakfast selection was extensive, and choices ranged from traditional Japanese and Chinese dishes to those suitable for the Western palate. In the evenings, diners can also select from a tempting case of exquisite desserts prepared by their talented pastry chefs.
In the late afternoon and evenings, the lobby showcases traditional Chinese musicians
as well as classical western piano performances.
A wonderful stay, marked by excellent and prompt service, supervised by a charming general manager Jackson Yang who is assisted by a superb team. I cannot wait to return to this unique historical hotel.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are highly recommended

The Grand Hotel Taipei is one of the great hotels in the world; in my mind, it's a classic property that is in a special class of hotels that include the Hotel Negresco in Nice and the Drake Hotel in Chicago. Words that describe the Grand Hotel include traditional, refined, splendid, dazzling, elegant, and historic. It's quintessentially Chinese/Taiwanese. It is NOT trendy or modern. The attention to detail is appealing, like the hats worn by the bell staff, the vases in the hallways, and the Chinese furnishings, decorations, and chandeliers (in the lobby). The live Chinese music in the huge lobby, in front of the enormous flower display, added to the atmosphere. Our room had been nicely updated, and we enjoyed our balcony. We spent at least an hour walking around the property taking pictures of the buildings (interiors/exteriors), landscaping, and views. On this trip (my third stay at the Grand Hotel), we walked to the Martyr's Shrine to see the changing of the guard, and the subway station (short walks). I recommend arriving at the breakfast buffet in lobby when the restaurant opens, before the aggressive tour groups ruin the atmosphere and create long lines for the food items and the drink machines. I also think it's worth paying extra for a room in the main building.

Room Tip: Consider paying more to stay in the main building.

Stunning lobby and great looking property. It is showing its age a little but is still opulent. I recommend this hotel largely for adults traveling without children because to get to the pool you have to walk down the driveway into oncoming crazy taxi traffic which is harrowing even as an adult but worse when you’re trying to keep a child safe. The hotel says a golf cart can take you to the pool but the scheduled times for carts aren’t posted and they won’t take you on demand. We experienced this when the front desk said a cart will take us to the pool but the porter said we’d need to wait for the next scheduled cart. We spied the two carts across from the entrance sitting empty but I resisted the urge to take one myself.

Another reason why I think this hotel is better for adults and not kids is because at breakfast I witnessed a complete stranger tell a child at another table to be quiet. It may be a cultural thing but in general I think people are annoyed with even well behaved children here. We’ll come back again but will rethink timing until our child is bigger.

What a lovely surprise, to see this beautiful grand hotel, we only had time to have a lovely buffet lunch, but, explored the hotel's foyer and dining rooms. The history of the hotel is so interesting. We'll definitely return to Taiwan and this Grand dame
