Coming into Taipei 2 days earlier for a 5-day Island Tour, we searched for a hotel with easy access to transportation and with business within close proximity. We chose Greenworld Hotel Zhongxiao.
With a red-eye flight arriving at 6:00am early morning, our group of 8 couples dropped our bags before going out for a early brunch. The Front Desk greeted us warmly and said our rooms will be ready by 3:30pm. There is no separate storage room. All the baggage were stacked on top of each other in a corner near the Front Desk. The staff was friendly and informative. The lobby is very small with 2 benches.
We were back at 2:30pm ready to wait. We were surprised to learn that all our rooms were ready. Wow! A quick shower and short nap helped the jet lag from the 14 hours flight.
The elevators were slow. Allow extra time to get to the lobby during the morning rush and also to get to breakfast on lower floor.
We were in Room 705 at the end of the corridor. The Executive Double Room was very comfortable and spacious with a small sitting area with 2 easy chairs. There were enough wall outlets to charge 2 iPhones, 2 spare batteries, 2 rental wifi eggs, & 2 wifi spare batteries. The bed was huge with comfy pillows and mattress. The TV had good cable stations. The closet is small and only one carryon luggage can fit inside.
Bathroom - the modern marble tiled walls and tiled floors, recessed lighting, Japanese multi-function toilet, bath tub and separate glass shower with rain shower.
Internet Access - the free wifi access keeping us in touch with folks back home with daily summary of our activities through email, photos, and instant messaging both in our room and in the restaurant area.
Business Center - it is located off the restaurant with 2 desktop computer screen & keyboard; the phone with speaker (however there is no private conversation since the restaurant is just outside the center with no door).
Breakfast Buffett - the breakfast offers both Western style and Asian style. There are more variety in Asian style including both Chinese traditional dishes (dim sum, congee, rice, and noodles ) and other popular dishes and Japanese traditional breakfast dishes (miso soup, pickled vegetables, and rice) along with speciality dishes. Fruit juices, fresh fruits, and Asian specialty fruits were always available. There is a coffee machine offering drip coffee, latte, espresso, hot chocolate, and hot water for tea bags.
