Miramar Garden Hotel, central Taipei, Taiwan is the perfect hotel to stay. It may be pricy at approx $200 AUD a night, but it’s worth it.
You’re met with impeccable service from start to finish. As you arrive the bell staff take your bags from the car, the lovely lady lifting our huge suitcases! We arrived early but the let us check in and leave our bags. The front desk staff are delightful and do their best to accomodate our needs.
The exterior looks heritage and something out of 15th century Europe. The foyer area is sophisticated with floor to ceiling marble, royal looking lounge chairs and a lobby cafe with patisserie goods.
We return later and head up to our large room, with a huge bed and sweeping views. The room has a desk, mini bar, fridge, kettle and free drinking water, tea and coffee.
A huge bathroom with rain water shower head, bath, free toiletries and it all feels very luxurious. Room service was fast and if you’re preferring to eat at the restaurant, there’s one on the ground floor.
There’s to an outdoor pool, suitable to do laps in, but don’t forget your cap! Located at the pool is a poolside cafe where you can grab a tea, coffee, hard drink or light lunch.
There’s a gymnasium/health club with good quality and quantity of equipment.
The most amazing thing was their sauna and spa area. It’s like a Japanese onsen (understandably no photos here) You wash and then soak naked, have a sauna or steam room and then use their amenities room to blow dry your hair, use products etc. This was incredible. They even allowed us to use this after check out and we can use the lockers.
We thoroughly recommend this hotel. It’s no wonder this is 5 star hotel and deservedly received a Michelin in 2018.
