Regent Taipei Review : Tai Pan Room - - Singapore Wacky Digital Underground Outpost

Regent Taipei Review : Tai Pan Room


Regent Taipei, a bespoke urban retreat, is truly a unique gem in the heart of the city. 

During my previous visits to Taipei, I typically stayed at mid-range hotels. However, this time, I decided to treat myself to a stay at the luxurious Regent Taipei, a renowned 5-star hotel in the heart of the city. Regent Taipei may have been a well-known hotel that caters to business travellers, but it has undergone significant transformations in recent years to better accommodate tourists. 

Let's start the Regent Taipei Review and delve into the details and explore how this experience unfolds.


It is situated in the Zhongshan district, once a financial core in Taiwan. Today, this district has become one of the coolest areas in Taiwan, featuring 5-star hotels and luxury brands, hipster cafes, and unique retail shops alongside old-school automobile repair shops in its back lanes.

Regent Taipei perfectly blends tradition with modernity with its understated exterior that masks the elegance under the facade. This standalone building takes up an entire plot with an open yard in front of it, making it easy to locate amid mid-rise buildings flanking its side.


Entrance Foyer

The check-in process at Regent Taipei is seamless and convenient. Depending on the room booked, check-in is at the lobby or Taipan Lounge.

At the main lobby, you will be greeted by shops at the entrance. It's a welcome distraction if you need to wait for your room.


As a guest staying in the Tai Pan Room, I had the privilege of checking in on the 19th floor at the Taipan Lounge. The Lounge is a classy haven with ample sofa seats and cafe tables. The view of Taipei 101 offers a delightful ambience to relax and unwind.

The bonus is that food and drinks are available at various times, adding to the comfort and convenience of guests staying at Tai Pan rooms.

My Room - Tai Pan Room 

Regent Taipei Tai Pan Room

Speaking of the rooms, the Tai Pan Room I stayed in was tastefully designed. Boasting a king-size bed, 45 square meters of space, a soothing neutral palette, a seating area, and a desk, it provided a comfortable and functional environment. While it does not scream modern, it gives a classic hotel a classy vibe.

Rooms come with international voltage outlets, which makes charging a breeze. The complimentary wireless internet service proves speedy and useful during this trip.

Some rooms even offer a view of Taipei 101, the iconic building in Taipei.

Other Rooms

Regent Taipei offers various room options to cater to different preferences and needs. There are a total of 478 rooms and 60 suites. 

Garden Suite

An enticing option is the Garden Suite, which offers a tranquil oasis within the bustling city. This suite spans 126 square meters and has a private garden terrace.

The terrace offers a beautiful view and is furnished with cushy outdoor sofas, creating a serene setting for relaxation or intimate gatherings. The Garden Suite is also an excellent choice for small private parties or business meetings, combining elegance and natural beauty in a harmonious blend. This room is a popular room for business seminars or for special celebrations.

Balcony Room

For families or larger groups, the Balcony Rooms are an ideal choice. These spacious accommodations offer two queen or two king beds, providing ample space for up to four guests. 

Perfect for families

With a generous size of 56 square meters, these rooms feature a separate living room, a spacious walk-in closet, and a private terrace. Located on the 5th floor, the Balcony Rooms provide a comfortable and convenient retreat for families, allowing everyone to enjoy their stay to the fullest. If I was travelling with my family, this would be the room I would choose.



In addition to its exceptional rooms, Regent Taipei boasts world-class dining options catering to its guests' diverse needs and desires. The hotel has nine outstanding restaurants, each offering a unique culinary experience. From the authentic Cantonese cuisine at Silks House to the international delights at Brasserie, guests can embark on a gastronomic journey that spans various cuisines and flavours. Every meal is a celebration of culinary excellence, with meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to using the finest ingredients.


Breakfast at Brassier was a joy. The buffet-style breakfast presented so many choices that one could have repeated visits during their stay and would still find new things to savour.

Street Food

A decent mix of local, Korean, Japanese and Western food is on the menu. The local dishes would be the ones I would usually reach out to first. In terms of variety, this is one of the best I have experienced in all hotels in Taipei.

For the health-conscious, Regent Taipei x Curious provides a nutritious set of offerings that would be appealing.

I suggest heading there early to enjoy a full meal as it gets pretty crowded in the later morning.

Silks House

Dinner was at Silks House, where I sampled a decadent feast.

This is a meal that one would require to book in advance. It was a special treat to enjoy this meal.

PeiKing Duck

From Roasted Duck to Empress Lobster Stock with King Crab Meat and Seafood, every bite is delightful.

I was most impressed with the massive Taiwanese Jumbo Shaved Ice. This dessert can feed an army, considering its size.

Taipan Lounge

The Taipan Lounge, apart from serving as a check-in point, continues to be a refined retreat for guests throughout their stay.

Its classy ambience, comfortable seating, and panoramic views of Taipei 101 create an ideal setting for unwinding with a drink or enjoying a quiet conversation. The Tai Pan guest is well-pampered with all-day coffee, tea and snacks during the stay.

Interestingly, Tai Pan Lounge is not the only lounge on-site. The Balcony lounge is also offered to Regent Balcony guests (other guests pay additional fees), providing a snack bar and rest area.

Families travelling with children will appreciate the Playroom, a dedicated space where young guests can engage in creative play and interactive activities. The very existence of a Playroom cements the shift from a business hotel to one that caters to the masses.


One of the highlights of Regent Taipei's facilities is the swimming pool.

 At designated times in the evening, the pool transforms into a Pool Cinema, where guests can enjoy a movie while floating in the water. 

Health Club and Sauna

Health Club

The basement Health Club offers a well-stocked gym and massage services.

Regent Galleria

Lastly, the Regent Galleria in the hotel's basement offers a shopping paradise for those seeking luxury retail therapy. This curated collection of high-end brands showcases renowned fashion labels, exquisite jewellery and watches, and premium cosmetics. 


Excellent Service

Regent Taipei is a 5 Star hotel, so the service level is expected to be of a high standard. Despite the high volume of guests, every touchpoint was impeccable. Staff were detailed to the point of even pointing out the numerous steps at the hotel lobby as they guide you through the lobby and restaurants. 


Chifeng Street

Regent Taipei is conveniently located near a vibrant shopping street brimming with local delights and the bustling Chifeng Street, known for its eccentric mix of old and new shops. New cafes share the same street as old barber shops or automobile repair shops. It is this unexpected mix that gives it hipster vibes.

The hotel's proximity to the Zhongshan MRT station also ensures easy access to the rest of Taipei and beyond, making it a convenient base for further exploration and discovery.


As a review from a tourist perspective, it is easy to fall in love with spacious accommodation, the touch of simple luxuries at Tai Pan Lounge and ample hotel facilities. While the high-end brands shopping may not cater to the regular tourist, the surrounding Chifeng Street makes up for a unique experience. With Zhongshan MRT station a mere 5 minutes walk away, Taipei is waiting for you to explore.
