"Le Méridien Taipei" is an international hotel originally from Paris, France in 1972 and it spread to the world. It is a hotel that started with the concept of "another house for travelers", but it continues to grow all over the world. Le Méridien Taipei features contemporary art in the hotel, and a lot of art works enriching sensibility were exhibited. It takes only few minutes to Taiwan's landmark Taipei 101. It was also great that department stores and other kind of stores were around the hotel. I would like to introduce this hotel in the excellent location which is also close to MRT station.

Exterior, entrance, and front desk

Hotel building is relatively new, built in 2010.

The exterior is a building that fits the cityscape.

The entrance has covered. As soon as I got out of the taxi, doorman welcomed me.

When entering, it was a place with a feeling of openness blowing through to the second floor part in the lobby area wider than expected.

From the high ceiling, a design-like pink gentle lighting is lit.

At the front of the entrance, there is a large giraffe art work made of stainless steel ("Be My Guest") The giraffe lowered his head and welcomes guests.

There is a front desk on the right side.

Art work is displayed on the second floor which blew through from the lobby.

I feel like walking through the museum.

I finished the check-in and took the elevator and headed for the room. The corridor of the guest room is extending in a straight line, so you might feel it a bit far if your room is on the end.

Deluxe King Room

The deluxe room is 38 m² in size. The ceiling is high and it didn’t make me feel claustrophobic.

There are a sofa for one person and a coffee table by the king size bed.

The room key is a card with cute pattern.

The hardness of the bed is just right, so you can sleep very well.

A bottle of mineral water is placed on the side table.

The operation of the light, power, and curtain of the whole room can be done here.

There was also a power outlet in the drawer.

The TV which was stylishly hanged on the wall is cool. There is a desk you can use for working.

There was also a media hub, telephone, DVD player and so on.

The furniture of the room is all dark brown and the design is simple, and it gave me elegant and calm feeling. Look at 360 ° Kuula7l9xm {width: 100%; height: 400px; max-width: 100%; max-height: 100vw;}

Spacious Bathroom

Bathroom window is large, and from the bedroom you can see the whole bathroom.

The bathroom is very bright because sunlight comes from the bedroom through the window. Walls and floors are made of marble which is very elegant.

The shower room and bathtub are separated. A bathrobe was hanging next to the glass-enclosed shower room.

The inside of the shower room is well cleaned and beautiful. The water pressure of the shower is also strong enough.

Shampoo, conditioner, and body soap were put.

You can stretch your legs in the bathtub.

You can watch TV while relaxing in the hot water.

Remote controller, bath salt and scrub gel were placed.

The toilet is also new with a washlette function.

Amenities

Toilet bowl drawer included toothbrush, shaving kit, cotton noodle set, mouthwash, body soap and body washing net. It was so nice of them that they had body washing net because most of the places don't have it.

If you close the blind the inside of the room becomes invisible.

In-room coffee and wine!

This cupboard at the window has in-room coffee set.

Opening the door, there appeared Nespresso's coffee machine, an electric kettle, cups for coffee, tea bags, and so on. Ritzenhof's cups were also placed.

Wine, glasses and snacks are included in the drawer.

There was a refrigerator under the shelf.

Paid drinks are included in the refrigerator.

There were chocolate and fruit as a part of the service on the coffee table by the window.

Closet, Safe Deposit Box

There was a closet near the entrance opposite the bathroom.

There were plenty of hangers and a bathrobe inside.

Iron, ironing board, shoe backs and brushes are also included.

Slippers, laundry bags and safety boxes are in the drawers on the next shelf.

It is a simple thing to enter and lock a 4 digit code which is enough large in size.

Breakfast Buffet

There are four restaurants in the hotel, but you can enjoy breakfast buffet at the buffet restaurant “Latest Recipe”.

At the counter in the center of the venue, there were chefs and they cooked for us upon order.

The object looks like wings was beautiful, reflecting the light and shining.

The seat was very spacious and there was a large table where even a big group can fit.

Fresh juice in the refrigerator is kept fresh. There are canned juice too.

Various fruits are also available.

You can make your own salad with a fresh salad bar as well.

You cut breads by yourself.

Various kinds of pastries

Cheese

Chef cooks eggs for you

You pick ingredients you like and order how you want to cook it with eggs.

I picked many ingredients and made it omelet.

There is also a Chinese noodle buffet.

Western and Chinese cuisine

You can have honey from natural honey comb.

You can have delicious, high quality coffee from the machine.

You can have ice cream and sweets for dessert after the meal.

There were candies in the showcase like the candy store.

Other restaurants

The hotel also has three other restaurants, bars and shops.

At "My Humble House", you can enjoy Cantonese cuisine by a chef from Hong Kong. The restaurant is designed Chinese traditional style with red carpet and it features with modern furniture. You can have elegant meals in the gorgeous designed seats.

At "Latitude 25" in the lobby lounge, you can drink Yrie's delicious coffee. In the evening it becomes a cocktail/wine bar. It feels very open and spacious by the glass window.

"ChocoArt" is a confectionary dealing with macaroons, biscuits and cakes. As each piece is small, you can eat many kinds of them at once.

Lunch at "Latest Recipe"

At the same restaurant you have breakfast buffet, you can have lunch in buffet style with more dishes.

There were many kinds of kiln-baked pizza.

You can also eat steak!

Facilities, swimming pool, and fitness room

People staying at Le Meridien Club rooms and suites can use "Le Meridien Club Lounge" on the 12th floor.

Soft drinks, tea, coffee, snacks, and so many other things are available free of charge all day. Private meeting rooms and business tools can also be used.

At the fitness center you can workout anytime with the latest machine.

The indoor pool on the 3rd floor is spacious and comfortable. There is a jet bathtub too and you can relax after underwater exercise.

Hotel surrounding

Within a walking distance, there are Taipei 101, the Buddhist memorial center, large department stores, the World Trade Center, so it is a very convenient place for sightseeing. You can walk around without problem even at night with good security. No trouble finding restaurants and shopping spots.

Taipei 101 in the evening is beautiful with light up in daily colors.

Access from the airport

It is in a convenient place to use any transportation. It is located 8 minutes on foot to the MRT municipal government station, about 40 minutes by car from Taoyuan International Airport and about 15 minutes from Taipei Songshan Airport. If you take a bus from Taoyuan International Airport, you take Line 1960 and get off the bus at City Hall Station. Limo service of the hotel is also available.

I think taking taxi is the most convenient for sightseeing, but as the station is nearby the hotel, either bus and MRT can work without problem. Parking lot at the hotel is free of charge.

Le Méridien Taipei's Staff

Staff at the hotel was relatively young. They gave me information I needed kindly when asking questions, so I didn’t feel any inconvenience.

Customers at Le Méridien Taipei

Most of the visitors of this hotel are Asian or perhaps there are many local Taiwanese. Not so many people from Western countries.

Le Meridien Taipei : Summary

As it is design hotel from Paris, I felt art was everywhere. Everything from the entrance to the room, the design was sophisticated with modern interior. The location was very good. You don’t get wet even on rainy days to the surrounding commercial facilities and MRT stations, if you walk along the hotel’s roof

As the hotel is in a business district where worldwide companies’ headquarters gather, I would like to recommend this hotel for business purpose not just tourists.
