Guest first, no matter when or where!
This is the motto of the Palais de Chine hotel in Taipei.
Palais de Chine hotel is one of my favourite hotel in Taipei. (My other favorite is the W Taipei, but I’m sure there are already lots and lots of people that talked about it, so I have decided to write about this one instead)
Situated right above Q-Square shopping center, this hotel is basically next to the Taipei Railway Main station, and sits at the hub of five transport avenue – Taipei Bus Terminal, Taiwan Railway, Taiwan High Speed Rail (HSR), Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Taoyuan International Airport MRT (opening in 2017)! So it doesn’t matter whether you are coming from the airport, or other cities in Taiwan; whether you come with just a backpack, or a huge luggage, the location of this hotel makes it very convenient.
Staying in this hotel is really like a home away from home, as the staffs are very friendly and helpful, and they will assist you with all they can. Upon check-in, they will greet you with a big smile, and explain to you all the facilities in this hotel. The staffs at the concierge will happily give you suggestions on where to go, what to eat, what’s there to see etc. This is especially useful for visitors who can’t speak Chinese, or those who came to visit Taipei for the first time.
