Exploring Taiwan’s Top-Rated Hotels

Taiwan is a fast-growing tourism destination with a breadth of natural and historic attractions to enjoy – and for shopping fanatics, it boasts some of the best night markets on the planet.

But with thousands of accommodation options available across the island, it can be hard to know exactly where to stay. And that’s where we can help – in addition to comparing prices from all major travel sites so our users can get the best deal, HotelsCombined also aggregates over 38 million reviews so travellers can see for themselves which properties scored highest in guest feedback.

We recently took a look through our database of over 4,700 Taiwanese properties to see which hotels stood out amongst the others when it came to customer reviews; in the end, eight amazing properties shone through for their ratings of 9.0 or over out of 10 (with a minimum number of 250 reviews).  Without further ado, here are Taiwan’s top-rated hotels:
