There is also a 24-hour front desk on hand to assist guests as needed, and as well as helping to store luggage, they can also help with private parking and more. You should also get in touch with the front desk if you want an extra cot in your room. There is no room for extra beds, but children under 6 are allowed to stay for free if they use existing beds and they’ll also supply a cot or a child’s bed for a child under the age of 2 to sleep in. If you are bringing the whole family along then be sure to arrange this well in advance, as there are a limited number of cots and you’ll also want to make sure that the cot is ready in your room before you arrive, saving on any fuss and complications.
Best Deals at Fullon Hotel Taipei
First you should remember that there is a service charge of 10% added to the price of all rooms, which is standard across Taipei. Therefore, don’t feel you need to tip at the front desk and be sure to check your bill to ensure that a service charge hasn’t already been applied to other areas where you would usually tip. When it comes to five-star hotels, they tend not to advertise offers as much as other hotels do, as they like to keep things on the down-low. However, you can get good deals on five-star hotels if you leave the booking until the last minute and if you show up at the hotel or give them a ring. Simply ask if they have any available rooms and be prepared to negotiate. You need to be willing to stay there that night and preferably for more than one night, as that will be a great bargaining tool. You should also seek to leave breakfast out of the deal, as this can cost them the most money and you can always grab a cheap bite to eat outside of the hotel. Hotels lose money with empty rooms and they will always do their best to fill them, so you’ll be doing them a favor. Be sure to remember that when they insist that they “can’t go any lower”, because they most certainly can.
