Opened in 1952 by the dignitaries of the young Republic of Taiwan who wanted the capital to welcome international delegations in a luxury hotel, this majestic Chinese palace now greets all kinds of visitors. Resting on top of 14 floors, the double roof of the Grand Hotel looks like a gigantic pagoda, painted in gold and crimson motifs. You will also be enthralled by the impressive lobby and its huge columns lacquered in red.
You can take your pick between more than 500 rooms and suites, from the plainest to the most sophisticated. Enjoy the spirit of the place fully by asking for an elevated room: rosewood furniture, gold-plated pipework in the bathroom, and obviously an astounding spectacle from your balcony…
The hotel houses 9 restaurants in its midst. For the more typical experience, give the Golden Dragon's magnificent buffet a go. Service is beyond reproach and location is great amid elegant gardens… Everything is taken care of to make your stay truly unforgettable.
