The Okura Prestige Taipei
Ranked #28 of 582 Hotels in Taipei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Please don't get confused: The Okura Prestige in other cities are completely different compared to the one in Taipei. We chose this hotel after a long business trip in Taipei and thought this would be kind of a luxurious hotel to relax at the pool side. Unfortunately the pool is not mantained at all. It's next to the big hotel wall and there is no decoration that makes you feel comfortable. The 3 sun lougers they offered were old and dirty. The pool is definitely a sports pool only. They charged us 65 TWD for a bathing cap which should have been included. Since we didn't have a relaxing time at the pool we went back to our room and decided to continue working. But WIFI didn't work! I called at the reception and their only comment was that the hotel is not completely booked and that Wifi should work. They didn't offer help at all. The rooms were ok, but also not impressive. We had a balcony which was unfortunately closed. Breakfast was not included. Location is ok but also not the best in Taipei. It's quite far away from 101. I also can't help to think that Okura is writing some of the Tripadvisor comments themselves. Otherwise I can't explain their high ranking.

The typhoon hit during our stay. Hours before the typhoon was to hit central taipei, one of the staff checked every room to ensure that the torch was in working condition - thumbs up! They also locked the balcony door the day before the typhoon hits. Also, there was barely any noise (you can slide the doors so that there is another partition between the entrance and the sleeping area). There was a very slight rattling noise at the windows when the typhoon passed.

Service was great. When I first arrived at the hotel, the staff handed me a card indicating the car plate of the taxi, in the event we accidentally left any of our belongings in the cab. There will always be someone pressing the lift button for you / opening the taxi doors and standing at the door until the door closes / taxi drives away.

The bakery downstairs was lovely. Go have a try!

Loved the room decor. They provided ample shower facilities and you can also watch tv while soaking in the bathtub. Bring your own bath salt to enhance the experience!

Another perk is that you can walk through the underground shops at Zhongshan Station all the way to Taipei Main Station! There are also some good massages shops and little cafes around the area to check out. Also, there is a huge departmental store for those interested in luxury goods: the restaurant at the 8th floor is pretty good.

Will definitely come back to this hotel when I am back in taipei!

We chose 4 different hotels for our taipei trip, which is Okura, FX, The landis and Royal Seasons hotel. Okura was the best. Service were excellent. The staffs were very helpful and nice. The room were great. They have separate room for shower and toilet. While you were taking the shower you can watch the TV in the same time. The hotel also can allow you to leave your luggage with them for few days after you checked out.

The Okura Prestige is a newly renovated hotel, clsoe to Chung Shan subway station, nearby has department store, Starbucks and McDonald. The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The room I had is Prestige King, the sleeping bed is comfy. The toilet bowl is the high-tech, "no touch" design from Japan. The cover will automatically open, flush and close after use. Toilet is separated from the shower. There is rain shower and bath tube in the shower room. The room we had is spacious and in light and comfortable tone (not the typical business executive room in dark wood and silver tone). The spa, gym and a lounge on the top floor for guest use. I enjoyed work out in the gym with a holistic Taipei city view and took a spa afterwards. Overall experience is fantastic, excellent. I did not try out the restaurants downstairs except the bar on the ground floor. Choices of drink is limited and very crowded at night, but price is standard.

I have been to Taipei a few times over the years, and hotelwise, this was by a mile my best experience. A warm welcome from when you first arrive till you come to leave. My room was of a normal good size, excellent views from the vast window, spotless inch by inch. Bathroom including clean and brilliant white towels - just what you expect for the money you pay.
The breakfast is quite good and the restaurants are great - do NOT miss the set menu dinner in the Chinese restaurant - not cheap but heavenly food and sterling service.
Great location with alot of shopping close by and touristic attractions.
Free wifi throughout the hotel which makes it easy to work while there.
Will surely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting, WHATEVER you are in Taipei for.

My girl friends and I stayed for 3 days in July and we loved it! Great room, excellent service from the bell boys ( yes, they wore those uniforms like in the old days!) to the front desk. From the moment we got off the taxi to all the way up to our room, we literally did not "lift a finger." Luxury amenities in the room such as a "hand free" spa like toilet, deluxe shower and bath tub with TV, I room safe, water heater and expresso machine... I especially like the multiple outlets charging stations with adaptor provided that meets modern traveler's needs. A local taxi driver told us this is a 7 stars hotel. May be a little pricey but it is worth your money.
