Top business hotel: Mandarin Oriental Taipei

This large hotel complex has restaurants, a shopping centre, function spaces and the highest hotel rates in Taipei

Commanding the highest hotel rates in the city, Mandarin Oriental Taipei is an attention-getter with its European castle design. Decorated with art deco flourishes and white marble opulence, the large hotel complex includes numerous restaurants, a shopping centre and a whole wing dedicated for function spaces.

Location

Mandarin Oriental Taipeino credit

Situated on Dunhua North Road, a broad, quiet, tree-lined street in Songshan district, the hotel is set apart from the urban frenzy while still comfortably close to business and leisure hotspots. It’s 15 minutes by car to the centre of Xinyi financial district, home of Taipei 101. It’s also minutes from Songshan Airport, which mainly offers domestic flights.

The Rooms

Ceilings are remarkably high in most rooms, and bathrooms are sumptuous with marble bathtubs and stylish rain showers. Large desks and Illy coffee machines will help you stay busy. For all the trimmings, opt for a club room, which includes daily breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails, as well as garment pressing and shoe shines.

Facilities

While the castle look makes the hotel popular for wedding receptions, the boardroom and ballrooms are prime places for meetings and conferences. A business centre houses private work stations. And after hours, try the outdoor pool, large gym or spa. For souvenirs, drop by the Mandarin Cake Shop for top-notch pineapple cakes. mandarinoriental.com/taipei
