For my 6D/5N trip to Taiwan last month, we put up at a different accommodation every night. The first hotel in Taiwan was City Suites Taoyuan Gateway (桃園城市商旅航空館).
As our arrival was 7pm, and by the time we had dinner, it would be approximately 9pm, it was sensible to stay near the airport. Moreover, we were to proceed to Sanyi Township in Miaoli County the following day, making it more convenient to depart from the classy City Suites Taiyuan Gateway.
Due to its proximity to Taiwan Taoyaun International Airport, just five minutes’ drive or about NT$200 taxi fare, you can imagine that City Suites Taoyuan Gateway is a choice accommodation for travellers.
Moreover, it is connected to the Taoyuan Airport MRT Dayuan Station via a bridge of just five minutes’ walk. The Taiwan High Speed Rail – Taoyuan Station is just 20 minutes’ drive away.
The hotel, which opened for business in 2007, offers five categories of rooms to cater to different segments of travellers. I personally think that the most suitable guests are international business travellers or those on transit with late flight arrival or early departure.
The 153 guest rooms available in this 10-storey building are in the following categories: Superior Double Room, Deluxe Twin Room, Corner Double Room, City Deluxe Room, and VIP Suite.
Among the amenities that are available for guests include free self-service coffee and tea, wireless broadband internet access, free computer internet access service, 24 hours counter service, luggage storage, and travel consultancy. For those who require a cab to the airport, the hotel helps to order one, too, for guests’ convenience.
Breakfast at the coffee house of City Suites Taoyuan Gateway offered an interesting view of the fast trains on the Taiwan High Speed Rail that head to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
Also, the coffee house here prepares a “Muslim table”, with separate sets of plates, bowls and utensils, to cater to Muslim guests. How thoughtful.
By the way, City Suites Taoyuan Gateway has sister properties in Taichung, two in Kaohsiung and three in Taipei.
