The Eva Air Lounge in Taipei was by far our favorite lounge this trip. It was spacious, had the largest variety of food and was a comfortable place to relax before our flight…almost too comfortable.
There are two sides to the lounge. We randomly chose to go left. Although the decor was different, the food was exactly the same on both sides. The lounge was fairly empty, dark and cozy.
The business center was located on our side of the lounge. There were three computers for guest use but only one was in working order. The free wifi was fast and did not require a password.
Although we did not use them, the lounge did offer shower facilities.
As previously mentioned, the lounge had two sides with varying decor. We popped into the other side out of curiosity and both commented that we preferred the side with the business center. The second side wasn’t bad but it did not seem as private.
The Eva Air Lounge offered a large variety of food: fried rice with salmon, wok fried diced pork, beef noodles, bamboo pith treasure soup, etc.
The hot dogs were ok but obviously not as good as Chicago hot dogs.
Yup, even more food: salad, sandwiches and dessert.
Did we mention dessert? Tasty ice cream!
The only negative thing to say (which is a stretch) is that there were no bottles of water. The lounge had only tiny disposable cups of water. Again, this is very minor but we mentioned it in case, like us, you like to grab a bottle for your flight.
Speaking of the flight, we were so cozy at the lounge we stayed longer than we had originally planned. So, it was a brisk walk to our gate at the other side of the airport.
Overall, the Eva Air Lounge in Taipei was a great spot to wait for our flight.
