Lonely Planet review
You may not know it, but northern Taipei is filled with hot spring hotels. Here's one that offers comfy rooms that compare very favourably with the big international hotels downtown. And don't worry about being too far away from it all. The MRT is just a few minutes away.
You stay here for the luxurious atmosphere, the hot spring water, and the great location on the edge of Yangmingshan National Park. But you can also get wi fi in your room if you need to do some business. The Spring is a modern hotel with all the amenities, including a slick Japanese restaurant and fitness centre. Rooms feature ultra-comfortable beds and useful touches like large fluffy bathrobes. This is just the kind of pampering you need after a hard hour's soaking in a sleek black stone tub filled with piped-in hot spring water. If you can manage to leave your room at some point, do try the outdoor spring facilities. They're top-notch and offer romantic views of the mountains and town below. On weekends the hotel can get pretty crazy with families and kids.
