Riviera hotel is situated at a good location closed to park, museum and restaurants and a small night market for locals. The hotel is clean, feels small due to low ceiling. Room is small but very well designed since it provided all guest’s needs such as iron and ironing board, hot coffee and tea, and even disinfecting laundry soap! Staff is nice and provided good customer services. We stayed at this hotel during the CoVid-19 period where flights were cancelled and/or modified due to the crisis. The hotel was practically empty with not many guests but yet management was not flexible when we asked for a check-out extension. Had to pay for late check-out and felt that the hotel should accommodate guests a bit due to the crisis!

Everything about facilities, room, staff, restaurant was great. Outdoor Roof top area and was incredible and exercise facilities were small but great.

Negatives was 7th floor lounge area had temperature set daily to sauna like conditions. Other negative experience was when local relatives dropped by hotel to visit our family. We were very respectful and using the guest area off the main lobby. One hotel staff did not appear pleased we were using the area, and came over and immediately put away the complementary coffee and cookies...not sure that was necessary as we were not interested at all. Hotel staff also appeared agitated and said something to me (which I did not understand). Attitude of staff was very different as soon as they found out we were all eating lunch in the hotel restaurant. I don’t want to give the impression that this was the attitude of the entire staff. Perhaps a little additional training and reminder to certain staff members would go a long way. Otherwise other staff were very hospitable and helpful, particularly the front desk and concierge, and the rest staff

The bedroom in the hotel was very large and comfortable with nice furnishings. It is perhaps a minor point but there was only 1 teabag, 1 coffee bag in room so only one of us could have a drink. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the food we sampled was good. However in the Mediterranean restaurant the steaks were very expensive.
One thing that could be improved is that they should have a courtesy room where you could have a shower and freshen up for guests whose flights leaves late at night. This is customary in most hotels in the world I have stayed at. Wi-fi was good. Hotel shuttle a good experience.

My husband (American) and I (Taiwanese) have been staying with Riviera for the last 18 years and my husband however had been staying here for over 20 years whenever he goes to Taipei for business trip from USA. Due to Covid we were not able to travel back to Taiwan and have not been to the hotel for the last 3 years.
This time checking in (2023/2/23), we were pretty excited going back. Sure enough staffs did not fail in their excellent service and attention to details. We can feel they genuinely happy to see us return. Best of all, seeing the old staffs from bellmen, front desks staffs and waitress in the restaurant make us realize how we took it so for granted.
We truly appreciate that the owner didn't not lay off any employee and insisted on staying open during Covid even at times when there was only 1 guest in the whole hotel (told by the employees). Not only we received warm welcome, we also feel the staffs appreciate our return as they express their gratitude.
3 years alot has changed, we notice some hotels and businesses were closed in the area. Riviera seem to strive for the better. We could see they did some update to the rooms.
True, Riviera isn't as modern and/or high tech like other hotels, neither do they considered to be cheap option. However we keep coming back for the their outstanding service. Riviera had it's charm and style that represents Taiwan and the hospitality is known for. For a hotel have over 75% employees have been working there for over 15 years, it says alot about their corporate culture. We love the area that is close to a famous night market and all kinds of restaurants. It's a foodies paradise. Everyone works there genuinely care about their guests. We cannot recommend them enough.

The staff was not helpful as shown by other reviews. The seats for breakfast were far less than hotel guests where a long queue was resulted every morning. Besides, many dishes would not be refilled.

The room was really aged and there was nothing interesting nearby.

Be careful, the high tripadvisors rating was a trap as the hotel would give you a treat/drink if you write reviews...

A very refined hotel, with comfortable rooms and a careful service. Only, bathrooms could be a little more comfortable if the shower would replace the tub. But in general, this is a very good hotel. The two restaurants (Yacht Club and Mediterranean Steak House) offers very good sihes at reasonable prices.

We recently had a pleasant stay at The Riviera Hotel Taipei and overall we had a great experience.

The staff at the hotel were friendly and professional always ready to assist with any requests or questions during our stay.

The room was comfortable and clean though it could benefit from minor updates to bring it to a higher standard. However it had all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay.

The hotel location was convenient with easy access to bus stops and MRT station(Zhongshan Elementary School). We found it easy to explore the city from this location.

Although we didn’t have the chance to try all the hotel’s facilities , we did visit the roof top garden, the Yacht Club restaurant which were nice and well maintained.

The breakfast buffet at The Riviera Hotel was good but it felt it could have a bit more variety.

In summary, our stay at The Riviera Hotel Taipei was enjoyable and met our expectations for a 4 star hotel. With a few updates and improvements , it has the potential to be even better. We would consider staying here again in the future.

Hi, I am actually at the Hotel today (Sunday 15th Jan) and can answer your question. From Taoyuan airport it is approx. 45 minutes to 1hr depending on time of day. The Taxi cost is about NT$1,300. Suggest taking a bus from the airport into Taipei city and get of at the first stop, then take a taxi to the hotel. The Bus ride is NT$124 and the taxi ride is NT$95 Depending on where you are coming from, maybe you can get flight to SongShan airport as it is very close to this Hotel. This is a nice and friendly hotel, you will enjoy your stay. Steve - Australia
