Pacific Business Hotel
Ranked #53 of 578 Hotels in Taipei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2012

I stayed at the Pacific Business Center for a medical convention in February 15-19, 2012. The facade of the hotel is quite unassuming, but the moment you step out of the elevator on the 11th floor where the lobby is located, you are suddenly transported to a different place. The interiors are chic, cool; the staff very friendly and inviting. Then when you enter the room, every bit of tiredness from a long trip goes away. It is simplicity defined: there is no "bathroom" to speak of. Two closed compartments, one for shower and the other for toilet are seamlessly incorporated into the bed- and living room. The workspace is quite generous; it can practically accomodate everything I brought. There is also an individual airconditioner (not like the centralized ones in other hotels) that you can control by remote. The DVD/CD player is an added luxury. For those who are particular about a view, there is a balcony where you can see the Taipei skyline. The location is also very convenient: about a dozen restaurants and half a dozen convenience stores within 5 minutes walk. Just beside the hotel is a laundromat/drycleaner and a bank. A steakhouse beckons just across the street. Also, the convention center and Taipei 101 are just over a block away. The Sun Yat Sen MTR station is just down the street. I had a wonderful stay, really and when I come back this hotel will be at the top of my list.

I used to stay here for the trip to Taipei. It's a decent hotel which won't get it from the outside of building.
The location is excellent, really close Taipei 101. A lot of shops, restaurants and night market around.
The front desk staff are really friendly and helpful. The room is new, clean, a bit small but enough for single/couple. And I got everything I need which included free Wi-fi and breakfast.
I always get good stay in this hotel:)

Pacific Business Center (PBC) uses the "business hotel" concept which is probably unique to Taipei where the operator runs a smaller scale hotel business within a office building. So there are less number of rooms and much less services available than a typical hotel in its class. But the upside is it's quite and has less number of tourists around.

Location - excellent, easy walking distance to Taipei International Convention Center, Taipeh World Trade Center, Taipei 101, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall (the changing of guard is a tourist attraction) and Xinyi shopping district. It is also within walking distance to a night market (nice local feel, not touristy like bigger nightmarkets ie. Shilin) and transforms to a morning market in the morning. I enjoyed walking around the morning market, away from the normal tourist routes. There are several convenience stores within walking distance, in fact, there is one just downstairs (I think it is a Family Mart). There is also a laundromat downstairs. The closest MRT stations are a good 15 min walk but there is a free shuttle bus from Taipeh 101 to some of the MRT stations).

Hotel room - very clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities, iron and hairdryer provided in room.

Breakfast - included in the room fee, good selection of Western, Chinese and Japanese food....unfortunately, hardly any change from day to day, but overall, it was good.

Staff - very helpful, friendly and polite. Helped me to book a taxi to the airport without any extra charge, which was good as my Mandarin is somewhat lacking in fluency. I went downstairs to wait for the taxi without realising that the driver was waiting for me at the Front Office (the Front Office is on 11 th Floor) and the Front Office girl took the trouble to go downstairs to make sure I got onto the taxi safely.

Internet - free wifi, good connection.

Would I stay there again - definitely.

Would I recommend this hotel to my friends - definitely
