“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Its my 3rd time staying at this hotel. It never disappoint me. The staff are great. Rooms are very clean. Simple breakfast was serve. Location not too noisy and many nice food just across the street. Good for family with children. The price is reasonable abt 1800Nt per night. If you are 1st time in taipei, I suggest you stay at this hotel.

Before we checked in we asked to view the rooms. Very bare and basic. Low low quality. Poor housekeeping. No security in room. Front desk staff wore masks???? Front desk staff were very rude and unhelpful. We had to argue to get our money refunded and immediately found a much nicer hotel for the same price. Our tour driver as well was disgusted with what was offered. Do not stay here as the prices and quality are a rip off as other hotels will offer much more and much better quality for the same dollars. This hotel survives on one time guests so they don't care about long term clients.

Room Tip: Do not stay here if possible.

The hotel staff were courteous. Ximending is just across the street, Ximen Station just down the road. Hot water came on instantly. Timely response to room service. Will be good if electrical kettle is provided in the room.

My stay in East Dragon was pretty much bearable. I visited Taiwan with my friends last September and due to late booking we were not able to get rooms in our 1st pick hostels. Our friend, who was a TW native, went on to book East Dragon for us. The rooms were pretty okay, a bit small but clean enough. The beds are not as comfortable though. The front desk was very accommodating and polite. They helped us everytime we had inquiries. They also advised us on what to do in the city. The location is very ideal being that it is within Xi Men Ding. It is very convenient for shopping. The breakfast included in our package was the worst. They had bad food and the service of the waiters were horrible. They seemed snobbish and irritated which made us not consume of breakfast coupons in the hotel despite it being free.

Convenient location with the train station just few steps away. Shopping is made easy as well since it's right across Ximending. Staff are really nice and even assisted in places to visit.

Only down side is rooms are rather worn out. Beds are hard and the pipes are old too. We could hear the sound of the aircon and water running in the pipes when you sleep at night.

Location is very convenient, just cross over a street to go to Ximending. Counter staff is very polite and courteous, however couldn't speak for the waiters in the cafe which are impatient and sarcastic. The room which we stayed has a double bed and a single bed. Space is tight and carpets are old. By the way, the main door is not operated by a card, you have to use an actual key to open the door and please remember to lock the door behind you when leaving the room.
If those who are sensitive to cigarette smoke, i would not recommend them to stay in this hotel, despite the hotel has non-smoking signs on the floor, there are guests who still smoke in the room, you could smell the stale smoke after coming out from the lift and we have to open the window to air the room.
Would I stay again? Unlikely.

Chose this hotel due to convenient location n family room. Stayed in a room for family of 4. The room is very spacious with 2 queen size beds. The interior is rather old and needs to be renovated . Toilet is small and the tiles are slippery.

The location is excellent as Ximenting is just across the street and plenty of eateries.Walking distance to the Taipei Mrt.

Heard about the comments on the hotel breakfast and we decided to give it a miss. There are eateries around the hotel which serves better food.
