... rooms, hence we were given a hotel room with double beds and a hot tub and a small cold tub. Overall it was again satisfactory, but unexpected.
The third place that we visited was Shiling Night Market. It was very satisfactory as my stomach was filled very quickly with native Taiwanese dishes. Though I didn't expect it to be an actual 'market' as I'd thought it'd be a whole street filled with food ...

Let me make good use of this opportunity to pay homage to the Hong Kong International Airport, a place for which I have some very profound respect. This airport has never failed to enchant me, and I still get so awe-struck every time I march down the bridges into the departure hall. To me, this airport is much more than a site where planes are temporarily stored: it is a witness of joy, excitement, ...

While getting a ticket and getting on the bus was easy (I had read some blogs that said there were two bus companies that took you to the Taipei main station), their efficiency was very poor. Instead of sending one bus to terminal 1 and another bus to terminal 2, they would send a bus to terminal one, fill it half way and then send it over to terminal two to fill up, and ...

There were lots of strange rock formations, carved by wind, water and sand. Boy, was it windy today. This is the result of Typhoon Francisco whirling its way to Japan as I type this. The advice was not to go up to the very peak where the native birds were. By the time I had wandered through two sections, that was enough. There are only so many angles in rocks before they start ...

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.
