Best area to stay

This is our first trip to Taiwan and we will be in Taipei for 5 days. We want to stay in a luxury hotel that is centrally located. We love to spend a lot of time walking around so a location in the middle of sights, shops and restaurants would be great. What area and hotel are recommended?

From the research I have done so far, it seems there are many sights in the Zhongheng area, but I haven't found much hotel information yet.

If you are into modern urban life or shopping, then Shin Yih (near Taipei 101) will be ideal. Best hotels are W or Le Meridien. Shangri-la is also in a good area despite it's a bit quieter (up market offcies and residences).

Or you might want to consider Chong Sun North Road (Grand Formosa) - the area has a lot of smaller shops, nice restaurants and has a Japanese feeling to it.

I also like Suite Taipei (Ching Cheng), a home away from home. It's not in the best location but it's right by the metro station. Taxi is so cheap in Taipei so you can get to anywhere within USD 5-6

Hi LynnDB.

3 locations most popular with forumers here staying in Taipei will be: Ximending entertainment district; Taipei Main Station; and cosmopolitan Xinyi district.

In the posts below, I've highlighted popular hotels in each of these 3 hot zones:

..... Ximending district:

Take your pick from these popular hotels.

Happy touring!
