Lai Lai Hotel's five well-equipped and luxurious room types start from the basic 23-square-meter (7-ping) Superior Room, which lists for NT$5,400.
The hotel's spacious, tastefully-decorated lobby includes a business-lounge area with computers and Internet access, and also has elevators to the fifth and ninth floors where all guest rooms are located.
With 83 square meters (25 pings) of space, a living room, two 42-inch TVs, panoramic views of the city and plenty of other amenities, the Presidential Suite is a relative bargain with its list price of NT$16,800.
