Great Family Trip

The room of the hotel is a bit old and small. It is only good for couple to stay. The restaurant at the second floor has good Chinese food particular for their Dim Sum. If you're looking for a great location in Taipei, this is the one to stay. Overall it's a great hotel for the value.

Wonderful stay near Zhongxiao Fuxing Blue/Brown metro lines

Highly recommend this 5 star hotel in Daan district within less than 10 min walk from Zhongxiao Fuxing Brown/Blue lines metro stop. The hotel is very big and has a small swimming pool. It is near lots of shopping on Zhongxiao E Rd Section 4 where the Sogos and many storefronts are located. The beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. Highly recommend getting the suite which will give you lounge access for happy hour.

The nearby metro stop is Zhongxiao Fuxing metro which has the brown and blue lines. The brown line will take you to Taipei zoo where you can go to Maokong for the gondola/cable car experience.

Perfect Business location

the hotel is located ideally in Taipei so you can take a bus from or to the airport or use the hotel shuttle and the taxi services from the hotel to customer locations will not break the bank either.

The bus ride from/to the airport is only about $5.00 US compared to $50.00 US for a taxi and the ride is convenient and timely.

Excellent Hotel!!

Very Very good hotel.Most of workers are very kind. Only one request is I asked them to have connected room because I didn't ask them when I make reservation,I asked them in front desk when I checked in.there was a lady and told me there is no room available at the moment.I stayed 5 night from thursday to tuesday.I didn't get connected room during my stay.it is ok but I would be happy If i can have any information regarding about this before I left hotel.Usually other hotels do once I mentioned they remember and tried thier best. Also,It will be more convience if hotel have some attraction map around hotel.there was nice restaurants around hotel but it was my first time visit and I could know until at the end of day,just day before I have to leave.It would be more greatful if I had more informations.By the way,rest of them is great.smile workers,good location.nice people except first day receptionist.

Vacation

Excellent hotel. Great breakfast. The Howard Plaza Hotel is much better than what I expected. Traditonal hotel with everything. I paid okay price for the 5 stars services. Hotel people are very helpful and knowledgable. Specially concierge (Sam Lee) he was very very helpful, he called the store address for me to see if the store near by my hotel then advised me if worth to go from the hotel. Actually I did. Thanks Sam Lee. Great Job! For sure we will go back to Howard Plaza Hotel. US vistior 4/2014

unkept bathroom

The bathroom tiles were moldy. The floor of the bathroom was very old & stained. The toilet was hard to flush. Otherwise it's close to transportation & convenient stores.
