Palais de Chine

Why Stay At Palais de Chine
The Paris-inspired Palais de Chine, next to Taipei's main train station, brings European-style service to one of Asia's largest cities.
Thanks to the influx of travelers (many from neighboring China), new hotels are popping up around Taipei, including the Palais de Chine, which looks to Paris for its design inspiration. Conveniently located at the hub of five train lines, the property features 286 art-nouveau rooms and suites, all with plush fabrics, oversize soaking tubs, and windows that look onto the bustling Datong neighborhood. Head to the three jewel-toned Grand Halls—usually reserved for meetings and banquets—to be transported to Opera de Paris, complete with a double-height draped ceiling and 18 crystal chandeliers. Like Taipei's evolving food scene, Palais de Chine's dining options are a mix of international flavors: steak straight from the wood-fire oven at La Rotisserie, a French-inspired grill; dim-sum at Le Palais, the Cantonese spot; and a proper cup of Palais de Chine's signature tea served all afternoon in the European tea house.
Be careful when deciding to share a room; open-concept bathrooms offer little privacy.
As is the case with many high-tech lighting systems, this one can be confusing. Be sure to ask for a complete walk through at check-in, or you may be sleeping with the lights on.
Arrive at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) which is approximately 29 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 60 to 75 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.No. 3 Section 1, Chengdu Road, Taipei, Taipei, Taiwan
