    Location 5.0 /10

    Far from downtown, near the Keelung river north of Taipei, in the extraordinary setting of the Yuan Shan hills and near the Shilin night market and the domestic-flights airport of Songshan. The closest tube station is Jiantan station. The international airport is 28 miles away; consider 40 minutes for the transfers. Accommodation tip: the rooms in the corners have a bigger terrace and a wider view. Likewise, the higher you are the most impressive the view is.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    You arrive in the Grand Hotel through a majestic Chinese door lit at night. The lobby is huge and impressive with its big red columns. Built in 1952 but regularly renovated (especially in 2005), the Grand Hotel is a massive 12-floor building which you can see from distance with its Chinese temple style, its characteristic dark red colour and its curved sumptuous roof. A real traditional Chinese palace ! The leisure areas include a vast olympic-size rectangular swimming pool of around 50m X 25m located down below the hotel near 4 tennis courts, a superior fitness room and a spa that are unmissable facilities. You will find a hot tub, a sauna, a hammam and a cold water pool. The olympic-size swimming pool has three diving boards; as its depth is 14.8 feet, you can try the most audacious dives! During summer months, a small bean-shaped swimming pool is dedicated to children. Showers, cabins and deckchairs complete the whole set. A playroom includes a bowling, two tennis tables and two billiards. Children can also have fun in the play area dedicated to them.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The 489 rooms of the Grand Hotel go from the standard to the suite, all offering a very good level of comfort regardless the category. Covered with fitted carpet, they are spacious and magnificently decorated with beautiful Chinese calligraphies on the walls and have a splendid decorated and painted ceiling. They include two separate queen-size beds, two armchairs and two beautiful wooden desks. The equipments provided to make your everyday life comfortable are numerous : pocket torch, free safe with electronic code, handkerchiefs, plasma screen satellite TV with 26 channel, discreet air conditioning, minibar fridge with supplies for tea and coffee and of course a telephone. A plug allows ADSL connection to the Internet, but this requires a fee. The cleanliness and soundproofing are impeccable and a room service is ensured from 6 am to midnight. The window offers a splendid view of Taipei, the 101 tower and the Keelung river thanks to the high position of the Grand Hotel. The bathroom is spacious, clean and well decorated. They include a bathtub equipped with a grip (a bit high) and a flexible shower, non separate toilets, hairdryer, fancy welcome products, telephone, scale, slippers and kimonos to relax after your bath. Two bottles of water are available free of charge. Constituted of a big room and a big lounge, the 8 big suites benefit also from a big panoramic terrace and a marble bathroom with a glass sliding door, mosquito net, separate shower and gilded taps.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    One of the strengths of the Grand Hotel ! The Golden Dragon restaurant serves a la carte a delicious Cantonese cuisine in front of a panoramic bay window revealing a splendid bird's eye view of Taipei, the 101 tower and the Keelung river. However, our favourite place is the Yuan Yuan restaurant, where the tasty food of Shangai and north China is prepared in an open kitchen under your eyes. The Grand Garden restaurant offers an excellent, complete and varied international buffet. Breakfast is open from 6 am to 10 am, lunch from 11:30 pm to 2:30 pm and dinner from 6 pm to 9:30 pm. Finally, the Chi-Lin cafe serves different snacks and delicious pastries accompanied with tea or coffee.

    To know

    A free shuttle serves the Jiantan tube station from 6:30 am to 10 pm. You can withdraw your cash directly from the cash machine in the hotel's hall. An olympic-size swimming pool will satisfy both amateur and professional swimmers. It is downwards, 10 minutes walking or 5 minutes with the hotel's shuttle, at the Yuan Shan Club. Party-men can dance at the club. Open all year round, the Grand Hotel has 489 rooms for a total capacity of 1500 guests. A free car park is available. This mythical hotel was managed for many years by Madam Tchang Kai-Chek. The establishment generally accommodates important officials and dignitaries visiting Taipei. The domestic-flights airport of Songshan is just on the other side of the river : you have the impression that the planes land in town !
