Cosmos Hotel Taipei Reviews
Situated in a fantastic location Feb 22, 2012
Hotel service was good, located in the main taipei station.
To access the hotel from the airport, you can opt to take a taxi, or there is a direct bus service from the airport and you will alight at the bus stop that is about 3 mins walk away from the hotel. If you are worried about traffic jam, you may opt to take the train too.
Despite being a 3 star hotel, service was great compare to other 3 stars hotel I been to. Though hotel lobby isn’t grand, but there is always a staff at the entrance holding the door and greeting you too.
Taxis are easily available at the hotel entrance however the hotel staff can assist you to get a metered taxi too at no extra cost.
As it is near to the main station and bustling district, the place can be crowded and noisy at the same time.
Breakfast is average, I will suggest you to skip the hotel breakfast and head out just for the local delicacy. Just next door right to the hotel is a typical Taiwanese style breakfast store.
You will not have to worry about going hungry for dinner. You can find tons of Taiwanese food easily ranging from café, street food, snacks, food court and restaurants. And for those who love Japanese food, you will be spoilt for choices.
Transportation is very convenient, as it is right to the main metro station. Hitting town or any other place in Taiwan is less than few stops away, and save the hassle of interchanging train, as this main station is considered the interchange.
This hotel is also a good choice for transit or travelling to other cities of Taiwan, as the high speed rail is located in the same station (yes, equally near). Tickets can be bought at the station, which you can save the online booking fee. More ever, tickets are ALWAYS more than enough.
Shopping: There is a SOGO nearby with a supermarket. You
should be able to grab all the amenities and gifts over there. Other than SOGO, there are also a few small shopping complexes around.
Internet: There is no wifi, but the hotel provide broadband in every room free of charge. Internet speed is good. Wish that the cable can be longer so I could snuggle in bed while surfing internet with my lappy.
Being a 3 star hotel, there is not much facilities other than 1 restaurant and 1 café. Did not tried the restaurant but have an ice-cream and desert at the café. As a guest there, you will be entitled to discount.
Now for the negative points. I have nothing much to complain other than the bed.
The bed is very stiff and hard. I think this is common in all Taiwan hotels as some Asians will prefer firm bedding. My suggestion, if bed is a big issue, you had better off look for western chain hotels.
My room does not offer much scenery, or rather none at all.
