The Walden - Luxury Hotel in Yilan City, Taiwan

Warm hospitality with contemporary style in Yilan City in northern Taiwan

From the moment you arrive at The Walden, your every need is taken care of. This luxury hotel in Yilan City prides itself on understanding everything their guests need for the perfect stay. Whether that’s a peaceful retreat from the buzz of city life, a base for exploring the wider county, or simply time to spend with friends and family.

The Walden draws its name and philosophy from the classic book by Henry David Thoreau. The hotel’s quirky take on this search for a simple, natural life includes bright murals of woodland creatures – as well as friendly, intuitive service. Elsewhere in the hotel you’ll find rooms named after writers and philosophers of western culture. Kick back in your spacious suite, where floor-to-ceiling windows let in views across the city to Turtle Mountain. Work out in the gym, or simply pick up a book in Goethe Café and escape over a coffee.

When you’re ready to explore, The Walden is on hand to help you discover their home city and county. A tour planning service, along with plenty of information about local sights, is your gateway to beautiful Lan-Yang plain. After a day out, take a seat in The Walden’s Rowling restaurant for classic Chinese and western dishes, followed by a nightcap in Shakespeare bar.
