8.5 out of 10

This landmark Taipei hotel is a pleasant if kitsch place to stay, with excellent English service, a range of top-notch restaurants, and dreamy views over the whole city. Recently refurbished in 2016, the rooms are immaculate, humungous, and royal with polished wooden floors. You will certainly feel like an emperor when you arrive in the lobby!

The hotel was first established in 1952 as Chiang Kai-shek felt Taipei had no proper hotels for hosting foreign dignitaries. The main building was completed in 1973 on the grounds of the former Taipei Grand Shrine, though it underwent major renovations after a fire in 1995. Today there are three main sections, including the Golden Dragon and the Chi Lin. Note that breakfast is not included.

If you just want the experience of staying at the Grand, but don't have the budget, elegant doubles, albeit with no windows, start from NT$3,000.
