Excellent hotel for solo travellers and families

Posted Mar 6, 2013
Pros: The buffet breakfast in the mornings (until 10am during the week and 10:30 on weekends), the complimentary quality coffee and tea, and the free wifi.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: The hotel is located five minutes walk from Daqiaotou MRT station, and is a short train ride to the main parts of the city. The roads nearby are busy.
I have stayed at this hotel twice; both times for more than a week. The hotel is conveniently located near an MRT station, and it is easy to arrange a taxi from the hotel by asking at reception. Double rooms are incredibly spacious and comfortable. They are immaculately kept, and include the regular conveniences of a mini bar-fridge, tea and coffee, bottled water, satellite television (more channels than I care to count!), free wifi, and ensuite bathroom and toilet with complimentary bathroom goods. Buffet breakfast is included in the price, and is varied with both Asian and European choices, including vegetarian options. The breakfast room doubles as a cafe, open throughout the day and evening, and has free wifi, daily newspapers and magazines in multiple languages. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and are fluent in Chinese, English and Japanese. I was very grateful for letting me practise my Mandarin with them!

Great base for exploring Taipei

Posted Nov 19, 2012
Good location 5 mins walk from the metro system exit. Room was very clean and overall standard of the hotel was very good. Staff were very helpful and there were local area maps and underground system maps available in the reception. The area around the hotel is nice to wander around. Breakfast was in the basement restaurant and the food choice was more than adequate. There is also a bus stop literally outside the hotel to get a bus directly to the main train station (easier than the underground changes). The rooms were very spacious - we had twin rooms during both stays (on arrival and on the way back before leaving Taiwan) - the twins are made up of a double bed and a single bed and have a living room area. The beds were very comfortable and it was very peaceful at night. I would definitely stay here again. To get here from Taipei international airport (the one outside of town), I would suggest getting the coach to the main train station (don't get off beforehand at one of the little stops) as the hotel is literally up the road from the station - either get a direct bus (get off at Bao An entrance stop - announcements in English as well as Mandarin) or buy an easycard at the metro station (TWN $500 inc $100 refundable deposit - don't bother with the 1 or 2 day tourist travel cards - the easycard is definitely the best way to get around for both metro, buses, local trains and the gondola!) and jump on the metroline up to Daqiapotou station (you'll have to change lines).

快適なステイでした♪

Posted Jun 4, 2012
Pros: 部屋が清潔綺麗
Cons: ごはん
Location: 老街に近い便利!
部屋は凄く快適で癒されました。ごはんがおいしくないのが残念。ま、無料だから文句言えないけど。もっと台湾らしい味にトライしたかった。

The club lounge is very substandard

Posted Apr 25, 2012
we stayed at the club access floor for 3 nights, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the room was very nice with great harbour view, the bathroom also very modern and spacious, the location is bit out of way, but we are very disappointed with the club lounge and catering provided there were way under 5 star hotel standard! the lounge was very small and basic, there were not much wine and food selection available at all. I don"t think will stay again in the future. Fay and Bin

コストパフォーマンスはかなりよい

Posted Jan 31, 2012
Pros: サービス
価格に比べ、部屋、サービスともに優れており、コストパフォーマンスはよい。ただ、バスタブがなく、シャワーだけだったので、冬季に宿泊する際は少し物足りなく思われた。

Hôtel situé à 5 minutes du métro proche du centre de Taipei. Chambres silencieuses, propres et confortables. Petit déjeuner complet. Internet sans fil disponible dans les chambres. A recommander.

Excellent hotel for the price!

Posted Oct 11, 2011
I had been looking for a clean and decent hotel in the area and found Dong Wu Hotel which won a Trip Advisor award for this year. I thought I couldn't possibly go wrong and as expected, it was a very clean hotel with spacious rooms. I was also very pleased with the friendliness of the staff there as they were very helpful. I would not hesitate to go back again! It's really a great value.

In the heart of old Taiwan

Posted Jul 3, 2011
We loved this hotel, where we stayed for five nights last week. We liked being in a neighborhood of traditional small shops, local restaurants, friendly people (and the hotel provided a handy map of the neighborhood, featuring both places to eat and places to see)--in contrast to the glitzy international center of Taipei, which did not interest us. The surrounding neighborhood of merchant shop-houses developed in the late 19th-early 20th century in relation to shipping via the river just to the west, with wonderful period architecture now preserved as an historical district. Yet a new metro station (opened November 2010) just a block away made the whole city (including National Palace Museum, central train station) easily and speedily available. The hotel's front desk staff was extremely cordial and helpful. The hotel restaurant is open 7 AM-10 PM; breakfast included in the room cost is a tasty buffet of Chinese, Japanese, and Western food. Our room was spacious and well designed. We were sad to leave.
