MRTTaipei City Hall
This might just be the hottest hotel in Taipei. Since it opened in 2011, its sexy rooftop pool has become one of the coolest spots in town, and its two bars draw trendsetters galore. The look is very modern (expect cutting-edge art installations around every corner) and, following the latest trends in hotelerie, the lobby is on the 10th floor. Definitely a place to see and be seen.

WHY WE LIKE IT
The hotel itself is “wow”: hopping scene, excellent amenities, chic vibes. (Note to the designers: the fireplaces in the lobby lounge are a nice touch.) On top of that, all of the business, shopping, and nightlife of the XinYi district is just steps away. Plus, when we can drag our eyes away from the scene, the views of Taipei 101 are great.
AMENITY WE LOVE
The sexy outdoor rooftop pool. The scene is Hollywood worthy, but be mindful of the serious lap swimmers who do their thing here. (Oh, and we love the spa, too!)
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The charge for internet access.
GOOD TO KNOW
All guest rooms are smoke free. The business center is stocked with computers, laptops, printers, scanners, and fax, copy, and translation services.
