Taipei MRT City Hall Hotels – Review

Sign up to find out some of the best places to eat, drink and travel in Taipei for 2017.


The MRT City Hall is a station on the Nangang Line (also known as the Blue Line) in the city of Taipei. Located in the Xinyi District, this is the second most active of all of the lines in the city, with over 115,000 people passing through every day. The majority of these are locals, but the MRT City Hall is also used by tourists. In fact, many tourists choose to stay near the MRT City Hall as they can pretty much gain access to the rest of Taipei, and see all that it has to offer, from here.

That’s not the only reason they choose to stay near the MRT City Hall though, because the Xinyi District in itself is also a fantastic destination with no shortage of attractions. This is a district with plenty of government and business buildings, and it is also the district in which the Taipei 101, formally the biggest building in the world, is located. you can’t visit Taipei without seeing Taipei 101, so make sure you stay near the MRT City Hall and not only can you walk to this colossal building, but once you’ve seen all there is to see, then you can hop on the train and explore the rest of the city.

Both of these hotels are just a short stroll away from MRT City Hall. They are also two of the best hotels in the city of Taipei, and that’s not just our opinion.

Eslite Hotel

The Eslite Hotel is a beautiful four-star hotel, an imposing building built with a view over a peaceful lake.

Many of the rooms also have their own private balcony, the best seat in the house when it comes to enjoying the view of the Xinyi District.

The rooms also feature a deluxe bathtub, a deep and sunken tub that you will never want to leave which you climb inside. Guests are also given fluffy bathrobes and a number of other free items, whilst the basic amenities are all here as well.
