“Hotel with great value”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Stayed for 6 nights during my trip to Taipei. This is an awesome hotel which looks really new and nice comparable to 5-star hotels, a great choice for budget-conscious travellers who doesn't want to sacrifice the quality of stay. The bed was comfortable and have fluffy pillows which offered us great sleep after a day of hustle and bustle in the city. Design of the room and bathroom was trendy and comfortable, lighting was great. The room was exceptionally new and clean and breakfast was really good. It isn't near the MRT station but the bus stops nearby have buses to bring you to MRT stations like Shilin, or if you don't mind having a 15-minute walk, you could walk to the Zhishan MRT station which also has a carrefour and Sogo department store beside. A large 24-hour convenience store is also located beside the hotel if you want to have any late-night snacks.

stay 5 nights in this hotel, overall had great stay. Tienmu is a great area, did not bother us that the hotel is not closed to MRT. Its great that free drink all day, one night we got Pizza delivery from near by pizza hut and ate in the cafe. You certainly can not do this at other hotel! The Family Mart convenient store is right next door is so handy. Had gone to Taiwanese hairdresser for shampoo (Xiaolin), they gave you a great head massage, and very cheap! Must try!

Suggestion: should change the bin in the toilet to pedal one with cover as you can not flush tissue down to toilet in Taiwan. Housekeeping seems busy, our room did not get cleaned until afternoon most days. Also we got bitten by mosquito at night, not very nice.

Will definitely stay here again when I am in Taipei next time!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback on TripAdvisor. I am very delightful to know that you find Dandy Hotel –Tianmu Branch a very convenient location for all your activities in Taipei.

On the other hand, I feel sorry about the imperfect experience you had during your stay. We had put a note to remind guests to use screens while opening the window to avoid disturbance by insects. And will adjust housekeeping daily routine more expedient to ensure a cleaned room awaited when guest returns. Regarding the suggestion of covered toilet bin, we will try to seek for appropriate substitution to meet your expectation.

Again, thank you for the time you have taken to extend your feedback, which enables us to continue to improve our services and equipment. We look forward to welcoming you back at Dandy Hotel-Tianmu Branch soon.

Yours Faithfully,

If you want to be centrally located in Taipei then this might not suit your pupose, but I wanted to be in Tianmu where I was visiting family, this hotel's location was perfect. The hotel was perfect in other aspects too: great variety of breakfast choices, guest service was also excellent. Guest rooms were small-ish considering the price you pay, it's a tremendous deal.

We booked this Hotel right after the tickets for our vacation were done as I did read very good reviews about the hotel. We stayed for 3 nights here and the hotel did not disappoint us, it was just awesome. The service of the staff was exceptional, front-desk and at the restaurant, etc. Location is indeed quite far off from city centre and a good 10-15 minutes walk from the nearest MRT but we never had trouble getting a cab to this place. Free laundry (self) services provided and couldn't have asked for more. Breakfast served at the restaurant was very good, well balanced between Asian and Western choices. Despite being vegetarians, we did not have any trouble having food here. The kids loved the hotel. It's reasonably close to the Shilin night market and just a 10 minute taxi ride. We took up the airport pickup service and I must say it was a wise thing to do, especially with the kids.

I would highly recommend this for families on holiday with young or older children.

Star rating system for hotels are usually based on the type of amenities such as pools, restaurants etc that the hotel may have. Rating system is never based on service. If it is, this hotel would get an 6 or 7 out of 5. The hotel is actually located in a very strange part of the city and even the taxi driver mentioned it that it is out of the way. It is off a main street (does allow for easier loading and unloading) and away from all the tourist sites. In fact, it is a good 15-20 minute walk to the MRT station which is located close to the Sogo shopping center. There are a few restaurants close-by but really nothing else. We did not consider this hotel in the beginning as it was not very convenient for us to tour the city. We ended up having one extra night in Taipei after touring the island before going to another country and needed to have a hotel with laundry facilities and therefore chose this one. We made the right decision. The hotel is very nicely decorated by a tea company and every floor has a tea theme from different country. We were on the fifth floor and it was Russian theme and below us was British. The corridors were nicely decorated with colourful graphics of tea and other patterns. There are no good views from the room but the room was spacious and adequate. As with many other countries, we had to provide passport information when we booked the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when the staff provided us with birthday treats, pastries and birthday hat as the day of us checking in coincided with a birthday. It was a nice touch. The laundry room was very nice, better than the room in my own home but the dryer was slow, taking over an hour to dry clothing (it is free, so don’t complain). However, the staff did offer to fold the clothing for us and take them to our room while we go out and have supper. There were also coffee/tea and snacks in the dining area at all hours. Breakfast was limited but adequate. The hotel also arranged for taxi service to the airport at a very competitive rate. Except for the location, this is as perfect hotel as one could find anywhere.

Very nice hotel. Good location, easily accessible, very clean both in and outside the hotel.
The staff and service was top notch. Very friendly front desk people. They spoke really good English which was very helpful.
The rooms are very roomy, clean, and comfortable. You'll have a good nights rest here.
Bathrooms are also spacious and clean.
Breakfast was very good, and the cafe is also very nice. You can get free coffee and snacks throughout the day. The little terrace out front is very nice too.
You will not regret booking this place, excellent value and you get much more than what you pay for.
