Stay Overnight at The Grand Hotel Taipei
The Grand Hotel is one of Taipei’s most iconic hotels. Supported by red columns and with golden roof tiling, the Grand Hotel stands midway up Yuanshan, much like a majestic 14 story palace. Facing Keelung River and Yangming Mountain, the hotel has 500 rooms which offer a bird’s eye view of a bustling Taipei in the daytime and a serene city in the nighttime.
The Grand Hotel, structured through western construction methods, is decorated with elegant classical Chinese details. This fusion of East and West makes the hotel a fine expression of Chinese art upon a foundation of modern western architecture.
There were always rumors that The Grand Hotel had a secret escape route designed for the former president, Chiang Kai-shek. A fire and subsequent safety check at the hotel in 1995 not only revealed the existence of a secret escape route but also the fact that one tunnel had an escape slide.
