“Great Hotel - Will be even better when MRT open soon!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Staff were always friendly and helpful, whether that be the front desk or room maids. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they went out of their way to help me. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice from local dishes to european continental style. Although the location is a bit out of the way, a new MRT will be opening opposite the hotel soon, which will whisk you into the city centre in no time. Buses and taxis are plentiful and extremely cheap.

Breakfast is only served between 7-10am. So if you are like me and find it difficult to adjust to the local time zone when travelling from the UK/Europe, you will have to force yourself to get up in time for breakfast and maybe go back to bed for a snooze afterwards! Breakfast should at least be served until 10.30 or maybe 11am to accommodate travellers like me.

Room Tip: Deluxe Room or Suite is best!! I was in room 507.

We arrived at Taipei airport and took a taxi which cost 1200 TWD....$40.00 AUS. to get to the hotel.
When we entered the hotel,the first impression I had was that it was very clean and no odour at all. Very impressive indeed. May be because of the air purifier unit on the corridor?? and super housekeeper?
We had a very comfy bed and the bathroom had a very clean bidet.
We washed our clothes in their laundry free of charge!washing detergent included! The two washing machines and the two dryers were not commercial grade but work fine. Big thank you for that!
One thing we would like is a bigger wardrobe.
While we were there we got woken up one morning by an earthquake. Obviously we rushed out to see if we should evacuate but no one bothered. It was may be 4 to 5 so very common in Taipei.
Breakfasts we had were very good and different each day. The chef was there serving hot onion soups one morning.
We found the morning market nearby and in the evening there were a lot of food places you can try, all within walking distance.
Overall, we really had a wonderful stay and will not hesitate to go back.

Dear Valued Guest,

It was such a thrill to read a review like yours. Thank you for your response and the positive rating! About the earthquake, yes, it's very common in Taiwan. But if the level is serious we'll make an announce to evacuate all the guests. Please don't worry.
And the laundry service, we will make an improvement for the open time to 24 hours before the end on this year. Hope could bring more convenience and comfortable to our guests.
Breakfast quality also the important point in our hotel. We wish make the healthy and delicious food to serve our guests. Our chef always walk out the kitchen to listen what's guests' need and try to satisfy them.
Making the nice memory is our goal, no matter the different purpose choosing Dandy Hotel - Daan Park Branch as the stay in Taipei.

Cheers, I hope this find you well and wish to serve you soon!
Yours sincerely,

For two adults and one 8 years old child, we got a twin room with view. We like the hotel so every year we stay at Dandy Daan for its convenient location, having laundry service, and relative good price. Last year and this year we started to notice the some maintenance issues and the laundry facility a big disappointment. It's only available from 10am to 10pm. Two sets only. One of the dryer did not work. Last year it did not work, we reported it. This year it still did not work. We suggested that they put in dryer rack but it didn't happen. During our 5 days there, we managed to use the washer twice, dryer once and did not dry at all.We gave up at the end.

We usually stay a few days at a time. Last year the electricity went out in the bathroom causing the Washlet and lights to stop working. They fixed it the next day. This year there was a wet spot on our carpet. Whenever I walked from bed to the bathroom, I stepped on it. We reported and the house keeper said they knew about the problem and put a towel over it. I think if they knew about it, they should not put guests in that room.

I did not complain about the spot at first because I thought one of us dropped water by accident. But no one did, and the next day it was still wet. We also had our wet laundry lay all over the room and I did not want to have to change room on our 3rd night there. Good thing no one had mold allergy.

We let the management know about this in the feedback. Hope next time things will improve. We like staying there whenever we are in Taipei. It'd suck if we have to look for a new hotel!

Dear Valued Guest,

We're truly sorry that your experience at our hotel was less than you were hoping for. There are many reasons to apologize, I don't even know where to start.
I'd start off by apologizing for the spot on the carpet. I assure you that we already take proper actions to resolve this issues. The other concerns on the laundry facilities and the serving time. Normally, we check dryer machine's function twice daily to make sure it's work well. This time, after I got your feedback. Found the hot fan didn't work only cold fan and operate. One the same day we call the maintenance vendor to fix it. Now, we are chatting about how to better handle this issue- due to comment such as yours that help guide us. We'll put the cloth to check the function is perfect daily.
About the dry rack, due to the space was not enough in the laundry room, so we bough 6 laundry to instead the dry rack stow the clothes. And also add 2 hangers to the guest room. I also know the laundry serving time from 10am to 10 pm couldn't satisfy all guests' expectation. But the laundry room located on 3rd floor. The guest live on 3rd floor always complain about the noise (include the noise from the machine and user's voice). Your specific complaints have been noted for further improving of our services. I will re-deco a place on the grand floor to the new laundry room where can open 24 hours.
We let you down, but are sure that in the future, this sort of issues won't be present in our hotel.
It's important to us, and we appreciate all of your feedback and comments.

Warm regards

Stayed in Dandy Hotel Daan Park Branch, it is a very clean Hotel with comfortable amenities and good internet connectivity. The staff is quite nice, friendly and accommodating. The location is still a bit difficult because it is far from all MRT stations. Only means of quick travel is walking and by taxi (Fare to almost all locations is NT150). Might be better when the new MRT opens in 2 years time. The location is near a flower market, and 10 min walk to Yong Kang Street (where i lived before) in that area you should try the Famous Din Tai Fung, Fresh Juice Place, Taiwan Noddles, Viet Noodles, and Yong Kang Beef Noodles. 7-11 is just outside, so you can get what you need from there. Enjoy :)

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for the warm response and the positive ranting! We are delight to hear that you enjoyed your time and our offers. Although the nearest MRT station was not finish yet. But the other one in front of "Yong Kang Street" will work on September. I believe it will be the good news for our guests, from "Yong Kang Street" station to our hotel only 5 mins. And we are constantly improving our service so next time you come back, it will be an even better experience!

We would like to have the opportunity to welcome you back! Thank you so much again for your feedback.

We stayed at room 10F-03, standard room

Pros:

1. Extremely modern and stylish decor, what you see in the photos is what you really get.

2. Large, comfortable bed & pillows.

3. Good wifi connectivity with decent speed (youtube vids load quickly).

4. Both room and toilet are really clean and all amenities look brand new.

5. Relatively quiet (didn't hear any noise coming from neighbours), but we did ask for a quieter area.

6. Breakfast provided daily till 10am, but they stop replenishing the food automatically from 9.30 onwards. If you'd like something that has been picked clean after 9.30am, just ask any of the friendly and helpful staff there and they'll replenish some for you!

7. Very helpful and friendly staff that do not hesitate to go the extra mile to provide great service.

8. International adapters are provided in the room!! (i.e. the wall sockets themselves are not the standard american ones but international) Awesome feature! I can guarantee that there's at least two of 'em when we were there, at least.

Cons:

1. Not that near to the mrt station, gotta take a bus 22 to get to Taipei main station, and 204 to zhong xiao xin sheng (ZXXS) mrt station. We never did go to Da'an station at all 'cos ZXXS station was nearer. Note that the bus stop for bus 22 (if you're going to Dandy hotel from Taipei main station) is not so easy to find, it's at least a 5mins walk from the nearest exit (north 1 exit).

2. No decent view of Da'an Park, have to stick my head out of window and crane left to get a not-too-impressive view of the park (fyi, Da'an Park is supposedly one of the largest parks in Taipei, also known as "the lungs of Taipei").

Room Tip: The room we stayed in, 10F-03, did not have a direct view of Da'an park. Note that the bus st...

The hotel is very well located and available at a decent price, I believe.
It is comfortable and the staff is helpful at all times.
I only regret the two separate beds on arrival and the fact that the room didn't have a single window but in the shower room.
All in one, it is a nice place to crash for a few days. Clean, courteous people, free internet... The buffet was mediocre though but never mind Taiwanese are lovely people and so friendly.

Room Tip: Suggest asking upfront for a room with window and ask to lower the music in the corridors.
