Sato Castle stands out in the neighborhood since the building actually looks like a castle complete with torchlights, parapets, and chains hanging over the driveway to simulate the appearance of a drawbridge. The hotel is centrally located in the Zhongshan district, a mere 5-minute walk from Jiannan Road MRT Station. It is also a short drive or train ride from Taipei’s largest night market, Shilin Night Market where you can experience local culture and foods from stinky tofu to snake soup. From Sato Castle, you can also walk across the street to the Miramar Entertainment Park with a massive Ferris wheel and other rides.
All the rooms in Sato Castle have their own themes. Every room has a steam room, magnificent showers, and Jacuzzis. All the rooms are fully equipped with ultra-modern control pads next to the bed which you can use to control the window blinds, surround sound system, On-Demand TV and music, lights, and more. The themes of the rooms include things like Spider-Man, ancient Egypt, princess tower, underwater, and much more. One of the most impressive rooms is the Dragon Room which actually has a 6-foot dragon to watch over you while you sleep.
After a free breakfast buffet, you can relax in the spa with many massage and relaxation options. You also have access to the 24-hour front desk where you can book tours of Taipei’s sites like Taipei 101, Taipei Botanical gardens, the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial, and many museums and memorial sites.
