Dandy Hotel - Daan Park Branch
Ranked #21 of 578 Hotels in Taipei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Stayed here for 4 days while attending a conference. It was easy to find coming from the TaoYuan airport and taking the bus-MRT system. Just a hop away from the MRT exit 1 (Stairs), and a 2-min walk from the MRT exit 6 (which I recommend for those with suitcases, since it has the escalators and elevator).
The staff are very friendly and helpful, quite English proficient. The hotel is small but comfortable, and the limited number of rooms make it possible for the staff to know all their guests.
The rooms are just the right size for 1-2 pax, but would be tight for more than that. The bathrooms and its amenities are very good, although if your BMI is more than 18, the shower might be a tight squeeze.
Breakfast is okay, with a selection of both Western and Asian dishes. IF you are big on breakfast though, the taiwanese seem not to be, so don't expect a big buffet.
The hotel is located 1 MRT stop or a 10minute walk to the Yongkal street area where the original Din Tai Fung is located, as well as some other quaint restaurants and cafes.
All in all, I would stay in this hotel again, and I would recommend it to other travellers coming into Taipei.

Stayed with a kid and was surprised by the value and clerks' friendliness in Dandy hotel. Everyone was helpful. Room is clean although not spacious (not a big issue for hotels in Taipei). The Friday morning's live solo violin music was very nice. Helps are offered for small kid as well.

The location is excellent. About 5 minute's walk to Rongkang Street with many excellent restaurants. And it's right next to a nice city park with playground.

Highly recommended!

I was very impressed with my overall experience; the staff were very friendly and helpful, the location of the hotel is simply fantastic. Daan Park is across the road, and is a great place to take a walk in the morning for go for a run in the evening (as many of the locals do). The hotel is also directly next to a MRT station, which is very convenient (Taipei 101 is a mere 3 stops away). There are also many shops and eateries within a 10-20 minute walk from the hotel (a Din Tai Fung restaurant being one of them). The rooms themselves were pretty decent; we stayed in the Deluxe room, and were very comfortable for the entirety of our stay. The included breakfast was also good, with a wide vareity of foods for every palate. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here for a week with my colleague during business trip in may 2014. Hotel is located close to Daan Park MRT station so it is easy to get to any places in Taipei covered by MRT. Hotel also offers pick up and drop off service from the international airport (fee is comparable to the taxi price)
Our Room was on the 10-th floor (access by elevator) not very large still clean and comfortable enough, even despite the fact that it had only one window (actually half of it), which was in the bathroom. Personal at the reception was very helpful in providing all necessary information (there is always someone who can speak and understand English language). Breakfast offers sufficient variety of tasteful dishes (mostly Taiwan) including different salads as well as chef and day specials.
My overall opinion is that this hotel is good for long-period staying as it has central location and offers high quality accommodation and facilities for reasonable price.

Room Tip: In case you need room with window, which is not in the bathroom, specify beforehand

Frankly, the premises and facilities are nothing to rave about. The standard rooms, I am told, are small. I had paid more for a larger room. The place is clean and pleasant but not spectacular or luxurious. Nothing out of the ordinary, in other words, for a hotel of its price.

The service, however, is first class. My wife and I had stayed for 6 days and we brought our 7 month old son along. We had requested for a cot and a room with a bathtub which they duly provided. In addition, the hotel also provided a baby tub which was a nice gesture which we didn't request for. The staff at the reception are always friendly (English-speaking, although I can speak Mandarin) and very helpful. We sought for directions to many places (nightmarkets, places to buy a temporary phone card, a pediatrician, bookstore) and they had an answer every time. One night, my son accidentally split water on our bed and the staff was there in an instant to change our bedsheets and blanket. I even once saw the staff helping another guest to coordinate the sending of large parcels overseas. Absolutely outstanding.

The location of this Dandy branch is also excellent. The Jieyun (train) station is literally right outside the entrance and from there, you can get to almost anywhere in Taipei for peanuts. A 10 minutes walk away (or one station) is the original Din Tai Fung as well as many other wonderful restaurants.

In short, this place is the best value for money you can find in Taipei. There will be more luxurious hotels but also more expensive hotels. If you are looking for the personal touch and friendliness, this is it.

This is a great small hotel. No restaurant in hotel. No shopping in area except for a 7-Eleven nearby. The MRT is just across but Note that station has No Escalator or Elevator, just long, long stairs. Not good for elders or persons with disabilities. However, the hotel itself is very thoughfully done. Wonderful buffet breakfast, great warm service, you can also do your own laundry in the hotel. Best of all, unlimited free Wifi and very cozy bedrooms, even without windows, makes this a very great value for money. Great park, the biggest in Taiwan, is just across.

Spent several days mid april in taipei, researched a lot of hotels and settled on this one given great reviews on almost every travel site. Was not disappointed at all. Location was fantastic, central in taipei and right next a brand new subway station. The staff was very friendly and eager to help, and the rooms were very clean with all amenities. Shower and bed were excellent. No problem w noise even though we were a couple doors down from the elevator. We had a triple which did not have a view, but the lcd tv was just fine, room was decent size.
Breakfast was good, you can also find a breakfast/sandwich shop across the street, 7-11 next door, and as you walk toward Yunkun street (on the other side of street, past the 1st light) a husband wife pair makes breakfast rice balls, another husband/wife pair makes breakfast meat buns at the start of Yunkun street (10-15 min walk). If interested in traditional breakfast, walk toward the Daan station and make a right and find the old fashion soy milk shop down that street (15-20 min) Overall Taipei is an amazing city, very friendly people very efficient place. I was happy and proud to introduce this great city to my kids. They loved Taipei and we were happy to have a nice clean and friendly hotel to come home to. (hotel laundry room and a fridge each guest room also were handy)
