Atami Hotel Taipei Onsen3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My friend and I booked a room online with spa in our room. The spa was awesome and the service was nice, too. The breakfast was typically Chinese and was kind of salty for me. But in overall, this hotel was good and I will take into consideration next time when I pay a visit to Beitou.
The hotel is located all the way up beside the natural hotspring stream of Baitou and just beside the famous garden and library. The only thing that is maybe bad is that you have to walk to the nearest food about 10 minutes away downhill... and then uphill again. But that's pretty ok on a good day, enjoy the sulfuric smell of hotspring and enjoy some photo shooting at the hot volcanic steam coming up from the stream as well as any manhole or outlet in the ground. The scene is kind of unique in its own sense. The hotel is average. I wouldn't recommend it, but it is cheap. If you do not want to spend too much and yet enjoy hotspring in your own room, here is the place. There is public hotspring as well, but I did not try it. There are different type of room, but the hotspring in my room is really like 1 person only. So, its what you pay for maybe. The rest is just average, the room is not too large and what are the basic requirements are there. Wifi, cups (paper though), stirrer, tea & coffee and well, even some extras like condoms (made in Malaysia... ). Well that can be good or bad, but I also realized that the hotel offers a 2-hours rates so.. I think you get the picture. The free breakfast however, I think it is terrible. I am not sure if this hotel is catered towards China visitor or not, but I did met some when I was there and the breakfast seems to be catered to their taste though. It is mainly north eastern type of source and hot and generally not too much of a liking to most of us I suppose. That I would definitely not recommend. I had many food in Taiwan, but this is probably one of the worst meal I ever had in the many years I was there. I would probably try another hotel next time though. With a bigger hotspring tub at least.
A well located hotel with spa, and very attractive representative of local culture diner buffet....Very nice staff attending guests in details....Unfortunately. the hotel owners ( A family ) have a tendency to cancel dinner reservations on a short notice due to insufficient bookings. This creates an inconvenience to customers. This is further aggravated by the fact that they refuse any comment nor apology, pretending that they are not aware of the problem ??? Evading contact is highly discourteous and unprofessional, casting a poor image of this stunning country populated by very friendly people. This hotel is an exception to the traditional Taiwanese renown hospitality. Unreliable establishment.
For ntd600, you get a private room for 2 at a basement. The room has a single reclined couch, a tub, a shelf, ceiling fan and shower facilities. There's no partition whatsoever, so, you got to be comfortable with being naked with the partner with whom you are sharing the room with. The pipe delivers scalding hot spring water and you can dilute it with another tap of cold water. The room can be used for 90 minutes. Hair dryers are available for use at corridor area. Ventilation could be better though.
Some facilities may see the ages of the hotel, and the room has a little smoke smell. But, the hot spring can make you forget all these stuff, it's awesome! After a nice sleep, you can enjoy the traditional Taiwanese breakfast in the morning :). It's a very nice experience to stay in Atami.
This onsen hotel is located less than 8 minutes walk to New Beitou MRT Station, 5 minutes walk to Wellcome supermarket and 20 minutes walk to Carrefour at Yonghe Street. The hotel is quite old but it is now undergoing refurbishment. We were supposed to stay on 3rd floor. Upon check-in, we were told the rooms on 3rd floor are undergoing renovation and we were switched to 6th floor. 3rd floor rooms come with Jacuzzi bathtub while rooms on 6th floor only has shower facility. We had to use the public hotspring pool since our rooms did not have the bathtub. Overall the bathroom is clean, so is the twin room. The room is huge and can easily fit in 4 slim adults. The room has very bad sound proof. We could hear the spring water flowing noise. The hotel is certified with Muslim friendly. Our Muslim colleagues had their breakfast at 10th floor while we enjoyed buffet breakfast with other hotel guests at restaurant located ground floor. Buffet breakfast has a lot of variety. Mandarin cooking style. On top of that, wifi is free and reliable even in room. But they do not have two sets of room keys. Your roommate and you must travel together.
The hotel services is very good. Breakfast is quite good. the scenes and atmosphere are very good. we can use the public hot spring free. 10 minutes from MRT. should stay at least 2 nights. near many interesting places
Atami Hotel is located in the hotspring region of Beitou district. When we were there, we used to jog around the place. It has a nearby park where you can spend a late afternoon, relaxing and just thinking about your life. Buffet breakfast has a lot of options. Reliable wifi.
The hotel is old and is very Chinese, based on the deco, with the large happy Buddha statue greeting you in the lobby to the rosewood furniture everywhere. The mattress is as hard as rock but I think it's therapeutic. It's not grand or fancy, the toilets are honestly quite old BUT everything works the way it's supposed to and most importantly, CLEAN. We met some of the friendliest hotel staff here during our one week stay in Taiwan. The hotel is certified as a Muslim Friendly establishment. Prayer mats and the direction of the kiblat were provided. We ate separately from the rest of the hotel guests. Dinner was plentiful and the server watched over us esp the kids since the plain water provided was a little hot. Breakfast was weird, the hotel explained that they didn't have the knifes to slice the tomatoes and cucumbers and we were provided SERVING spoons to eat with. The food was still good though. Our itinerary had promised us a hot spring inside our rooms but we were not given that room at check in. Our guide, travel agent and hotel worked quickly to resolve that for us, but since it was already late, instead of changing rooms we were given the private baths the next morning. The hotel also has public hot springs for hotel guests. Just down the road is the hot spring itself, you can visit to see where all the glorious hot water comes from. The town also looks quite interesting, do explore!
The service of the reception and room was great however the service at the restaurant was terrible . We brought 2 kids with us , as we went as a family we got a 2 person room therefore only having 2 breakfast ticket upon entering the restaurant we were told they (2 kids) needed a ticket too (each cost NT82) as they were a bit off the height limit . Not wanting to pay more we ask if it is a must they instead didn't reply in a polite tone but demanded us to pay . Not wanting to skip breakfast we paid for it . However when we were getting breakfast for our kids we realised they were staring at us . When my kid was trying to get a bread herself one of the worker went up to my kid and started talking in a loud voice to my kid saying that she was wasting food . I think that they really need to reflect on their service attitude
