“Great location, lovely hotel and so reasonable!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

I love the location of Dandy Da'an Park. Not only is it right next to a metro station, it is also just a short walk to YongKang Street and it's many dumpling restaurants, Taiwanese snacks, mango dessert places, bubble tea shops and boutique shops. It was also next to the jade and flower market which was a great place to spend a weekend morning.

I was really impressed by the hotel. The staff were so helpful and attentive. The hotel looked stylish and modern with arty touches. The room was spotless and although on the small side, it had all the amenities you would expect and I really enjoyed the powerful, hot shower! The hotel was great value.

My highlight had to be the Friday morning breakfast violinist... what a great touch! It was my favourite breakfast in Taiwan, with a really talented violinist walking around the tables playing songs such as 'Over the Rainbow' and 'A Whole New World'. My husband and I loved it!

My only suggestion for the hotel would be to try and install a 2nd lift, or make the stairs more accessible/obvious. We kept spending ages waiting for the lift to come down from the 11th floor.

We chose this hotel based on the reviews here at Trip Advisor. The location next to the metro station was fantastic and made touring around on our long weekend trip to Taipei a breeze. The staff is very friendly and helpful, excellent service from them! We did not care for the breakfast and didn't return after the first visit (we stayed 3 nights) so I am docking one star for that. Otherwise I'd give a perfect score. There is a little convenience store next to the hotel that we stopped by daily for drinks, nuts and bananas. We stayed in the park view room, which is furthest from the elevator so we did not have any noise coming past our room, which was good for us.

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.
