Very welcoming, and very clean. Great location, too, by the metro stop. The buffet breakfasts were tasty, with plenty of fresh fruit, and made-to-order omelets. In the afternoon, they offer tea/coffee and nibbles, and the lounge area is very comfortable, much like sitting in the room of a friend's house. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and intend to return.

Historical Traveler Reviews Les Suites Taipei (Ching Cheng)
JUST WHAT I NEEDED
The final city of a 2 week + business trip ended in class and luxury. this place is elegant, subtle, exclusive and very comfortable. It has the feeling of being in a club due to the ambiance, service, decor, and amenities. Free coffee/tea/ cookies during non meal times; honor system for drinks. Breakfast was included and really good.
Lobby was classy and elegant, subdued lighting was a little too low; atrium, outdoor tables, artwork everywhere, tremendous couches and reading public areas make you feel like you are in a club or high end coffeehouse.
The room was small in my case but it was my choice. Upon entering the room, jazz music filled the bathroom and main area. The bath is quite exquisite: Westin type with large rainhead type of shower in glass enclosed separate stall; bathtub soaked out the hours of travel. Although there was a musty/humid odor in the area of my room, the hotel installed a dehumidifier that removed the smell on the 2nd day. Best thing: free room internet - by wire as the signal was too weak for wireless. : ( The bed was in a semi alcove with sheer curtains to offer a feel of privacy. Area is very good: subway just 300 yds away, lots of shopping and restaurants around.
IF you enjoy small luxury hotels versus the large chains, this is tops. A mix of Asian service and western comfort.
This is my all-time favourite hotel in taipei. Great location, very nice rooms, very peaceful, home-like feel. The toilet seat in the bathroom is very interesting. It comes with a built-in bidet with water temperature control, seat temperature control so that your bottoms will not come into contact with cold toilet seat and of all things, a dryer! The room is modern, well-furnished and very comfortable. What I enjoy most about this hotel is its cozy, intimate feel. Service is very polite and discreet and they go the extra mile to make the guests feel at home with free, all-day tea/coffee and snacks served at the lounge area.
Loved the hotel
Best service. Room is very modern, clean and new. Great breakfast with lots of variety. Stayed at other hotels in Taiwan, Les Suites is by far the best.
An oasis of peace in busy Taipei
We stayed in hotel Les Suites Taipei-Chin.Cheng from October 17th thru October 26th. The hotel is located at the dead end of a street closed to a subway station. Restaurants, department stores and shops are nearby. From the services to facilities everything in this hotel is excellent. What makes this small city business hotel special are the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere and very stylish decoration. We have had a Superior Twin Room. It was very well sized and comfortable. The bathroom is stylish and luxury as well. It has a bath and a separate shower.
We can feel this hotel really want their guests feel comfortable and calm here and they are doing very well.
Good marks all round
This is a great hotel. We stayed in a king-suite, which was huge, comfortable, quiet and very well laid out. The amenities in the room are excellent - and the hotel also provides tea and coffee in the library, just beyond the foyer, which is a very nice touch. The staff are very friendly and super-helpful. All in all, it's a really pleasant place to stay.
Very nice hotel
The rooms are beautiful and mine had fresh lilies in each room. The only thing stopping this hotel from being excellent is the strangely located running machines (in the hall!).
A gem of a hotel
One of the finest hotels we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The staff is amazingly gracious and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and have amenities that rival any 5* hotel. The breakfast is outstanding and there are snacks available all day. There is a lounge area with several computers that are complimentary for hotel guests. The location is perfect for walking all over the city.

... with bags on and it's not touched, I am sure this how england was when I was young. So many families out playing with the children, Sarah and Tilly are somewhere but I know they are safe, it's great so relaxing, plus the sun is out. Flower market next - wow amazing orchids and so so cheap. The we did a silly thing - went to a jade market. Found Caitlin a little bracelet that cost 200NT$ (spoilt child) and me a necklace and Heath got a new key ...
moved on to wulai, visited the atayal museum, went to the free hot springs on the riverside for foot soothing, then walked over to the more formal free ones where people frolicked in the many tubs.
caught the bus back to town and stumbled on a buffet down a small alley north of the peace park. then got a bubble tea and went to the peace park for a free concert by a guy with guitar.
Arrived just after 6am, caught the bus into town, ate, and checked in to the hostel. Then, since I was feelig good despite my long flight, got right into things by going to Yangmingshan and climbing Cesing mt and checking out the volcanic activity. Ate cheap wonton soup plus pot stickers at the underground mall.
... running water (at all!) since then. So when checking out, we asked him for a discount because of this inconvenience. Initially he agreed, but then shortly after he pointed out that there were (mascara) stains in 5 of our towels. He then went on to charge us 1500 Taiwanese Dollars (a bit less than 40 euros) per towel to cover the cost of extra laundry and potentially replacing the towels. We tried to explain to him that you can buy 10 towels for that amount of money. ...
Im currently lying in bed at 6pm and have been since 7 this morning when I crawled in looking like death stinking of fags and booze from the big all nighter in the one and only Taipei. I haven't moved and don't believe I will, this bed is a dream and I'm not ready to leave. I'll start from way back at the beginning of the day, yesterday in fact. We considered it a very productive, fast paced morning multitasking between getting ready and planning managing to be out the house by ...
