NTU Hotels – Hotels Near National Taiwan University

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


National Taiwan University is a research university located in Taipei, one of the most popular universities in Taiwan, and one of the most respected as well. The National Taiwan University has been around since 1928, although it became the building it is today in 1945, following the end of the Second World War.

If you’re heading to Taipei to visit this prestigious university, then you’ll need to head for the Da’an district, where its main campus is located. Luckily, there are plenty of things to do in this district and it usually attracts a large number of tourists because of this. As well as being one of the main educational districts, it is also a commercial and cultural hub. This is made evident by attractions such as the amphitheater, the Taipei Hakka Culture Hall, The Mongolian and Tibetan Cultural Center and much more.

This is also a great place to shop, one of the popular past-times of many people that visit this area and can’t get enough of the local produce and knick knacks. If you tire of the local food, or if it is not to your liking, then this area is also rich in International restaurants, serving everything from American food to Japanese and Italian food.

With that in mind, and with your tastebuds tingling for the National Taiwan University and the Da’an District that surrounds it, where are the best places to stay?

Hotel Eclat Taipei

If only the best will do, if your idea of a perfect holiday is one spent in the cozy and luxurious surroundings of an award-winning five-star hotel, then the Hotel Eclat Taipei could be just what you are looking for.

  • Airport Shuttle? No
  • Free WiFi? Yes
  • Pool? No
  • Fitness Center? No
  • Restaurants? Yes
  • Near Public Transport? Yes

Hotel Eclat Taipei bucks the trend of grand and imposing 5-star hotels. This hotel is actually one of the smallest in the district, with just 60 rooms. All of these rooms have all of the amenities you would expect, and so much more besides. They come with an audio system, but not just any audio system. It is a Bang & Olufsen audio system, one of the most prestigious names in the industry. There is also room service, but again, this isn’t just room service. All guests will get their own personal butler who is on hand to provide them with whatever they need.

All rooms also come with a Nespresso coffee machine, and if you are keen to settle in early then you can even check-in whilst you are in your room. There is free parking and free Wi-Fi available to all guests at the Hotel Eclat Taipei, and there is also an onsite restaurant and bar, where food and drink is served exclusively to guests everyday.

This may be a small hotel, but once you are inside, one you’re sampling some of the finest luxury that this city has to offer, then you probably won’t notice and you certainly won’t care.

RF Hotel

Size is important in Taipei, as you will discover. Space is at a premium in this city and, like many other big cities around the world, that can mean that many of the hotel rooms are on the small side. It is not uncommon to see huge hotels with hundreds of small rooms all packed together. The Hotel Eclat Taipei we mentioned above is not like that, catering for a small number of guests and doing their best to entertain each one, and the RF Hotel also breaks the mould.

This hotel actually has fewer rooms than the Hotel Eclat Taipei, with only 43 available. This means that the staff can spend more time ensuring the needs of each guest are met, but it means that if you want to book yourself a room, you may need to book early.

  • Airport Shuttle? No
  • Free WiFi? Yes
  • Pool? No
  • Fitness Center? No
  • Restaurants? Yes
  • Near Public Transport? Yes

The RF Hotel is a three-star hotel by name only, as this is a highly rated hotel that never fails to please. It is one of the most highly rated hotels in this area and it is also one of our favorites. It is very affordable, and yet it doesn’t skimp on the basic amenities. If you have children then it might be even more affordable, as 1 child under the age of six is able to stay for free.

All of the rooms at the RF Hotel are air conditioned and carpeted. They all have a comfortable seating area and a private bathroom, and some of them have bath tubs. The RF Hotel is a short drive from many great shops, so bring plenty of spending money and leave plenty of room in your suitcase.
