Dandy Hotel - Daan Park Branch
Ranked #20 of 578 Hotels in Taipei
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2014

You cannot beat the location of Dandy Da'an Park. It's across from the metro stop, and I had a window room facing the park which provides a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. The free breakfast each morning was plentiful with friendly service. All of the staff were very friendly and eager to help. My only complaint would be that attempts to get partial housekeeping service as opposed to a full cleaning (only fresh towels; don't need the whole room cleaned) failed, as the entire staff is so eager to please. But I suppose that is a good problem to have. Lastly, the hotel is located within walking distance to a market and YongKang Street - excellent for strolling, browsing, and eating. This boutique hotel is a great value.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the park.

I stayed here for 3 nights in early July.

The hotel was clean and staff were all nice and helpful. The room was very small and you nearly need to jump on the bed after going in. The railway station was just outside the hotel so it was convenient. For breakfast, limited choice of food and we only had it once and not going to the restaurant again.

My wife and I arrived here after a long journey to Taiwan and immediately noticed something different about this hotel... Great service! We felt very welcome and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a deluxe room that I booked online for the first night and we liked the place so much that we stayed an extra two nights in a standard room. There are some good deals online for this hotel if you book well in advance. They have everything you need in a hotel (in room wifi, clean rooms with Western toilets, refrigerator, and a safe). The deluxe rooms have complimentary drinks in the fridge but no alcohol. Good news though, there's a 7-11 underneath the hotel with super cheap beer! The buffet breakfast spread is great with all sorts of goodies to fill your stomach before exploring this interesting city. You can also walk off your breakfast in the vast park across the road! Da'an Park Station is also directly opposite the front door and you can get around the city very easily, quickly and best of all cheaply! You need to buy an EasyCard from the vending machine to travel on the trains (T$100 for the card + you need to load credit onto it to travel). The machines are easy to use, just follow the prompts (there's an English option), the stations are written in English too.
Overall this is a great hotel to base yourself if you're going to be in Taipei for a few days, but be sure to book early as it's very popular. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Safe travels.

Stayed only one night in a room overlooking the park. Reasonably priced room with modern decor. Hotel staff very friendly and spoke english very well. Breakfast in the basement was good and was made very pleasant by a very good live violinist playing with recorded music. Something very different to wake up to in the morning.

Room Tip: Room facing the park.

We picked this location based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. You can e-mail the hotel and they will arrange for airport pick up ($1300 NTD). Return to the hotel cost less ($950 NTD). There is a cheaper option that works well. It was our first time in Taipei arriving at 10PM and we took the Kuo Kuang bus at the airport for $125 NTD per person to the MRT station in the city. We then took a normal cab for almost the same amount to the hotel. We reversed the itinerary on our way back to the airport.

We got upgraded on arrival and were on the 3rd floor on one of the 2 rooms with balcony overlooking the Daan Park. The bathroom was great. The lights set up in the bedroom were excellent. The bed was nice, the room was just a little small but we did not feel cramped. We had 2 issues (little smell and few ants) solved with a great sense of urgency.

The complimentary breakfast was great with Asian and Western choices. The staff was very attentive and quick to respond. The complimentary laundry facility was also convenient.

The hotel at Daan Park is nicely located to reach the main attractions in Taipei. There is a Subway (MRT) entrance facing the hotel. 2 other ones are just within short walking distance. There is a Subway (sandwich store) nearby as well as a convenience store. If you take a taxi cab to the hotel for the first time please ensure that he does not drop you at another Dandy Hotel. That happened to us even after we handed the cab driver the Chinese address. We got to the other Dandy hotel a Tianjin. Btw they were also very professional.

Overall, we had a great time at Dandy.

Stayed for 4 nights in April 2014.
1 night in a Twin Park facing room and 3 nights in a Deluxe Park facing room. I much prefer the Deluxe room with one king size bed as it was more spacious and with nicer bathroom. Unfortunately there were some water leaking issue on the floor after showering.
The decor of the room wasn't my taste but it was a clean, friendly and functional small hotel,
The best thing about the hotel was the window could be opened to let fresh air in.
Breakfast was crowded and the violin performance made the place rather noisy to start the morning.

I have chosen this hotel mainly due to the superb reviews that I have read on trip advisor. I must say that the hotel did not disappoint at all.

I was here from 5-9 June and have stayed in both standard and the park facing room. I would say that the park facing room was much more spacious and the view was very pleasant. But if you only need a cosy place to sleep at night, then the standard room would be sufficient.

As this 3rd trip in Taiwan was meant to be a personal retreat, I have chosen Dandy as it was only a 3-5 minutes to the MRT station (red line).

Breakfast was good and if you are luckily, you will get the chance to watching live violin performance during your breakfast!

The hotel is also just opposite the Daan Forest Park, within walking distance to the famous Yong Kang St (those who have young children or old people are advised to take 1 MRT stop to Dongmen) and also historical places of places such as Qingtian 76.

Overall, I find that even though Dandy is not as convenient as the hotels that I have stayed previous beside Taipei Main Station, it provided me a more relaxed and serene feeling. And I certainly appreciate the personal touch when they gave me a birthday platter and birthday card on my birthday. :)

Room Tip: Choose parking facing room for great view. Opt for higher floor and corner room if you do not like n...
