Reviewed 29 April 2012

I stayed at the Howard Plaza Hotel during a business trip and mini-conference. I found the hotel quite comfortable, the staff very friendly (and proficient in speaking English) and overall decor charming. The entire hotel is non-smoking.

The hotel has an open atrium with a pond in the middle, several floors of shops and many different restaurants. For breakfast, you can choose from a Western or Chinese buffet. There is also wi-fi in the rooms.

Room service is quick. It took about 20 minutes for my dinner to arrive (on two separate occasions). I also arranged for the hotel to send a car to pick me up and drop me back off at the airport. Both cars were right on time and, again, the service was impeccable.

If you're looking to shop, Taipei 101 is a short taxi ride away.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The hotel is not quite as elegant as the Intercontinental or a typical Westin, but it was really charming and the staff made me feel at home.

Have stayed here few times before, The Hotel rooms are being renovated, how ever I was upgraded to a suite which was very large, it was not the renovated one, but was OK. All clean & tidy with large bed etc. Bar and food are a little expensive but quite good. Taxi service is fantastic outside.
2 breakfast restaurants, one is Asian & other european on 2 separate floors. Will stay there again

I stayed here for 2 nights during Easter in Apr 2012. The location is ok, just a few blocks from the nearest MRT station. There's also a bus running to the airport with bus stop right next to the hotel.

This is not a brand new hotel. Some furnishings are rather old fashioned and need updating (especially the bathroom). I love the atrium of this hotel. It is warm, beautiful and grand. There's free wifi in a part of the lobby. Check in was a breeze and the staff were among the best that I have ever met, efficient and helpful. On the day that I checked out they even give me a name tag to attach to my luggage since i don't have one.

There are 2 locations for breakfast to choose from, one is at the base of the atrium (serving Chinese). Another one on the 2nd floor serves western and Japanese breakfast. I tried the Chinese breakfast on both morning and the food was good.

Our family of five (3 kids 4-10 years old) stayed here for three nights during our visit to Taipei. It is an older hotel that needs updating, but the large room and the friendly and helpful (and English speaking) staff mostly made up for that. It definitely feels like a safe neighborhood and a safe hotel. Taxis were readily available. There are numerous restaurants, food vendors, convenience stores, and shops around the hotel, as well as the Sogo department store and a subway station. We used the laundry service at the hotel and it was quick but not cheap.

There were really only four things that were bothersome at this hotel: the AC was pretty worthless, the beds were very hard, the carpet was old and didn't seem all that clean, and the bathroom was very small and very old (although clean). The pool was closed for cleaning/repairs while we were there so cannot comment on that.

We stayed 4 nights at Howard Plaza, which was a good choice as it is centrally located, near to MRT , SOGO and surrounded by many good dining places. Although it is not a handsome looking hotel (more than 25 years old, built 1984) and some part of it looked aged, we are very pleased with the service and attitude of the staffs . If you are looking for central location and reasonable priced business hotel, this one will not disappoint you.

This is a old hotel but still maintains in good shape.

Rooms are nice and breakfast is good and it offers two restaurants for you to choose. I go to the Champs Elysees for breakfast as it has a lot of Chinese and Japanese choices.

Location of the hotel is excellent as it is close to mass transit and it takes only a few minutes to go to 101.

Also, the airport bus stops at the hotel so you don't need to pay much much more for a ride to/from the airport.

The only drawback is you hear flushing sound after people in other rooms use the toilet. This is common among those older hotels.
