The Regent Taipei used to be a Four Seasons hotel, but are now on their own and doing a great job as being the place to stay in Taipei. A great location in the Zhongshan District is the first of many plusses I noted about this hotel. With 538 rooms total I was excited to have Club Lounge access as this is kind of a hotel within a hotel with personalized service and staff that remembers you. The club lounge is excellent with complimentary drinks and snacks 24/7 including ice cream.
I stayed a Deluxe Room with hard bed, separate shower from the bathtub, flatscreen Tv, working desk Hermes products and unfortunately a hard bed. Not the soft, comfortable bed Four Seasons has in all their hotels and tells me they must have replaced the beds when Four Seasons left. Basic internet is free, while you have to pay for the premium. The basic internet is super fast and by far the fastest “basic internet option” I have seen in any hotel. The in-room phones have butler service buttoms for English and Chinese service, but the butler service is not personalized and I didn’t any butlerse at all during my 24-hour stay.
The hotel is a very big complex with eight restaurants, roof top pool and spa- and fitness facilities. Impressive business facilities and although it indeed is a business hotel, I felt very well taken care of as a leisure traveller. Regent Taipei is a very big hotel, but its run very professionally by Regent and surely a safe choice in the capital of Taiwan.
My opinion: Great experience.
