Grand Hyatt Taipei
Travel Blogs from Taipei
This place is amazing first off it is a department store with typical food court and then you have your individual shops. If you are after a bargain forget about it. Everything here is very expensive and aimed at a particular market who can afford the luxuries.
There are lots of …
Slept later than I expected and got a late start with my game plan.
I intended to visit at least three or four sites but really only managed a couple as I got very distracted at the two sites I got to. So much choice in Taipei and only a little time.
First things first was I got a taxi to the main train station to organise my …
Well I finally got here and I have to say I'm knackered.
The flight from Singapore was rough and we encountered a lot of turbulence heading for Taiwan so the seat belt stayed on for most of the flight. I think I managed to drop off a couple of times and nap but when I finally disembarked i was truly ready for bed with a huge headache. Can' …
Editors Note: I'm in the process of transferring the text from my original blog over to Travelpod. Many of the pictures were lost from a server crash bootsnall had in Sept. 2006 during the Military Coup in Thailand (unrelated except that I was real time blogging at the time 3 blocks from Government House in Bangkok). This is my first entry over 2 …
Another early morning wake up call to catch an 8:00 AM flight to Hong Kong. There are no direct flights from mainland China to Taiwan so Dennis and I had a two hour layover in Hong Kong. We found a Starbucks. The Hong Kong airport is by far my favorite airport of this trip. There are actually stores and restaurants there -and they were open! We …

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hyatt Taipei
This place is the real thing!
I am writing this from the hotel, where I an in th emiddle of a week long stay.
I've travelled quite a bit and this is easily the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. We are in an upgraded room and we have a king bed, walk in shower, great lighting. Service throughout the hotel is superb.
This hotel is definitely "western" and not at all like the city of Taipei. Since I find this city dirty, hot, smelly and chaotic, this has been my oasis :)
We have been lucky enough to stay in this hotel for nearly 4 times recently, and can honestly say we are dreading checking-out this week. The service is is absolutely faultless---I've already forgotten how to open doors and press buttons for the lift, the front desk has solved the only 2 minor problems we've had in less than 2 minutes, ALL of the staff in every restaurant understand the meaning of good service and the general attitude and ability of staff in every area of the hotel is exemplary.
I booked a Grand King Suite before my Taiwan trip on the Hyatt website. Upon arrival around 11:30am I was informed that the room was not ready so I headed across the street with my family for lunch at the 101 building. Came back after lunch at 2:30pm, sorry sir room is still not ready, I was getting tired since I have 3 kids with me they were getting cranky. We hung out at the lounge on the 22nd floor til 3:30pm, check-in staff apologized and said that they will put us in an upgraded suite on the top floor, I said sure whatever i'm tired and need a nap. Upon opening the door I was floored to see the Diplomatic Suite! Asked if this was to my liking I thought to myself...hell ya it is to my liking! So we had a Fantastic 2 night stay in the Diplomatic Suite with the free internet, free mini bar and butler service. Almost didn't want to leave the room it was that nice. I was very impressed with the service, I didn't have to open a door or push an elevator button my whole stay. Definatly do recommend, even to those traveling with kids, they are very accommodating.
Great Location and very nice hotel
We purchased a Dragonair holiday package from Hong Kong for 3 days two nights with breakfast. The hotel was great, clean, well located and the staff were very accomodating. The breakfast that was included in the package was as complete as any we have had. I highly recommend the hotel and even better if yu can arrange it through a Dragonair holiday.
Stayed for 7 nights at this hotel. I loved everyday of it. Rooms are large and beds are comfy. Get a room with a view of Taipei 101 which is located just across the street. In addition to being the tallest bldg in the world, it also has a mall and food court and restaurants, all of which I found to be outstanding. The lunch buffet at the hotel is second to none! Large selection and everything was so delicious. Ziga Zaga on weekend features a live band, I found the crowd there to be on the shall I say more mature side (37+). The food at Ziga Zaga is also very good. Shanghai restaurant in the hotel also had an excellent selection of dishes. The pool is nice, and on weekend nights its open late serving cocktails and appetizers. Make sure you are a Hyatt Gold Passport Member as you receive free daily paper, and free continental breakfast delivered to your room. T
Great hotel in many regards, the Grand Hyatt is a good place to call home for the weary business traveler. The rooms are pleasantly decorated in an Asian theme accented by grand wood panneling and deep crown moldings and polsihed granite bathrooms to boot. The exercise facility is vast with plenty of cardio and weights to go around at busy early morning workout hours. The pool is located outside and attracts many swimmers in the morning hours and is also a nice place to relax after a long day before heading to one of my favorite bars in Taipei, club Ziga Zaga, located on the second floor of the hotel. The first floor bosts a piano bar called Cheers which is a great place to grab a hamburger after a long flight. Top it off with a Carlsberg beer to boot! Downsides to this hotel are few and upsides include close proximity to a plethroa of restaurants and shopping in the bustling financial district of Taipei. For about $10 you can be on the top of the world next door at the Taipei 101 building, currently the tallest building in the world. Hope you enjoy.
Slightly past it's best but still excellent
I've stayed in the Grand Hyatt a few times and have always been impressed. The staff are excellent and the location is now fantastic since 101 opened nearby and brought a lot of things with it. The rooms are looking slightly old now but not in a way that detracts from the quality of your stay. Bathrooms scrupulously clean. Breakfast is the best of any hotel I've stayed in in Taipei.
Very Nice Hotel
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Taipei for 28 days. Very friendly staff and very nice hotel. Went back there a couple of months later and couldnt get into the Grand Hyatt had to stay at the Crowne Plaza and boy I didn't realize I had it soooooooo good at the Grand Hyatt. Great location, good food, nice club with an excellent band just overall a very nice stay.
