Guest reviews for The Howard Plaza Hotel Taipei

Everyone (1)
4 out of 5
Loved the staff overall, but the staff recommendation to take the airport bus turned out to be a serious, serious mistake. The staff said the bus came every half hour. After waiting 35 minutes and seeing no signs of the bus, I had to rush to get a cab. Very stressful. At one point, one staff member said, "This is a city bus, we have no control over it." I found that unacceptable. Recommending this service put me at serious risk of missing my trans-Pacific flight. They need to provide accurate information about this service.

Outdated

Pros: Clean bathrooms. Hotel staff was friendly
Cons: Rugs need to be cleaned, as well as walls. Drawers in closet need to be able to open.
Location: This hotel might be good for business traveler, but is horrible for the person that wants to enjoy Taipei. Italian restaurant La Giara nearby.
This hotel is outdated and needs some TLC. The rugs in the room were visibly dirty. The drawers in the closet did not open unless you forced the door over as you opened them. A crowbar would have helped. The walls were not the cleanest, but were okay. The restaurants on site are overpriced and poorly run. Bathroom was clean and amenities provided were better than most. Close enough to Taipei 101, and the metro is within walking distance.
