Taipei Fullerton Hotel - Maison North
315, Fuxing N. Rd., Songshan District Taipei
This boutique hotel offers a nice alternative to Taipei's many large-scale lodgings.
The contemporary lobby of the Taipei Fullerton Hotel - Maison North features sculptures and porcelain displayed against backdrops of cream-colored marble. The first impression, suffice it to say, is impressive. Clean lines continue into the guest rooms (given names like Delightful and Joyful), all of which are generously furnished with free Wi-Fi and mini-bars, Nespresso coffee makers, 48-inch smart LED TVs, Bluetooth speakers and TOTO Washlet toilets.
The Lobby Lounge presents complimentary fresh-ground coffee, gourmet teas and homemade cookies, while the restaurant serves an also complimentary breakfast buffet, featuring a daily-changing chef's special and both Western and Asian-style dishes. The small but nicely equipped gym overlooks the garden, which offers a landscaped terrace, grassy areas and tables for enjoying a drink or meal outdoors.
