Hotels Near Taipei Medical University (TMU): Review

With close to 6,000 students on their books, the Taipei Medical University is a leading center of learning in the city of Taipei. It is also viewed with great respect outside of the city and indeed the country, as the Taipei Medical University is often voted as one of the best 100 medical universities in the world.

The Taipei Medical University was founded back in 1960, but it wasn’t until the year 2000 that it was given the name it is still known by today. The Taipei Medical University is made up of many colleges, including colleges of medicine, oral medicine, pharmacy, nursing and medical science, and there are many undergraduate and graduate institutes as well.

The Taipei Medical University is located in the Xinyi District, often seen as the government district, due to the fact that the mayor’s office and the Taipei City Government is stationed here. It isn’t just about dull government buildings and politics though, as the Taipei 101, which is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city, is also located in this district. There are also plenty of shopping malls here and there is no shortage of places to eat and drink either.

If you are planning a visit to the Taipei Medical University, then the Xinyi District in which it is located is the perfect place to stay. Here you will find some of the best hotels that Taipei has to offer, two of which we have picked out for you below.

W Taipei

The W Taipei is as good as it gets in the Xinyi District. This hotel has gone all out to ensure that all of their guests are given an experience that they will never forget, and one that is worth every penny. This is not cheap, but at the W Taipei you really do get what you pay for and if you are a seasoned traveller then you will find that the best five-star hotels are cheaper on average in Taipei than they are in other major cities.

The W Taipei is beautiful, fusing an oriental style with a modern one, and creating something that will suit most tastes. The W Taipei was actually designed by a leading London-based design firm, and one that is respected worldwide for their exceptional attention to detail and their unique designs. The W Taipei is also home to one of the best restaurants in the city, known as the YEN. This restaurant is famed throughout Taiwan, serving Chinese cuisine with a modern twist within sophisticated and elegant surroundings.

It doesn’t end there either. W Taipei really has gone the extra mile and as well as a large and fully equipped fitness center, where personal trainers can whip guests into shape, there is also a yoga room, a sauna and a massage room. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, the W Taipei has a rooftop pool that will blow your mind. This pool is best visited at night, when you are afforded an amazing view over the Taipei skyline as you sink into the warm and clear water.

If you want only the best and if you like every detail to be perfect, from the best BOSE audio systems in the rooms, to boutique toiletries in the bathrooms, then you need to book yourself in for a night or two at the W Taipei.
