A half - hour easy train ride brought us to Xinbeitou from our hotel downtown. The hotel was a 7- minute walk from the train station. We were here as day guests for the hot springs. On arrival at the door, we were totally surprised as this looked nothing like anything we have seen in Taipei. The hotel was stunning as was the interior of the lobby, straight from an architectural digest. Having a camera would be recommended.
We had a most sumptuous 2 hour 4- course luncheon in the dining room. ( Reservation is a must). Another 2 hours were spent in the hot springs with many different pools with different water temperature. We used the public pools, (there were separate spa areas for men and women). Having a private room would be totally unnecessary and would cost many times more with minimal added value as the public spa area was very large, not crowded, consisted of beautiful changing areas, a big lounge to read, rest or helping oneself to drinks.
Unfortunately, we were unable to see any of the rooms. Nonetheless, a day spent here was extremely good value, and I would imagine spending 2 nights in this beautiful milieu would simply be appropriate and perfect.
