Went for a short trip in Taipei over the weekend and stayed at Dandy Hotel - Tianjin, took an Elite Room as that was the only room type available during my booking.

Service was good, staff was polite and helpful, room was an average size and comfortable (could do with more clothes-hanging space though, but may not be possible as the area is open-concept as compared to a proper cupboard), a small but complete range of breakfast provided daily, some free snacks topped up daily, amenities provided, DIY washing and dryer room, luggage weighing scale near the reception, 7-Eleven just across.

Gave it a 4-star rating as we felt the location was a little far from Zhongshan MRT, though walkable.

Still, all in all, a good stay.

We checked in today and there 15 of us, we all where so impressed with the rooms and the efficiency of Ruby the front desk lady that we all would just like to say thank you for making us feel at home. After a travel of 18 hours on flights all is amazing when you arrive and get to feel so special.
I would recommend this hotel because of the price, I normally stay in 5 star hotels ay 4 x the price. Rvery year from now my company will book the Dandy Hotel only.

Room Tip: My room was on the 8th floor.

Stayed for 2 nights with small child. Although I could see that the hotel is converted from previous shop house, the design was modern and contemporary. The Deluxe room that we booked was 'cool' and not small as commented by other travelers. Although the hotel just beside the road, the sound insulation was good. The king-sized bed was comfortable but the pillows were a bit hard. Bathroom was satisfactory and clean. What I wanted to highlight here the most was the service there. The complementary Champagne and cakes in our room during check-in really surprised us. The next day, they provided us with soft drinks in the room after house-keeping. The toiletry set was up to par to 5 star hotel. Basically, you got everything you need there. The was even a self-service washing machine, so we no need to pay for the laundry. The staffs were very friendly and attentive. They gave a warm greeting everything we passed-by the counter. They even asked whether we need more water bottle or not. The dining area was small but the buffet breakfast was satisfactory. The taste was good. There was lots of restaurants nearby the hotel (less than 1 min walk) with 7-eleven and bakery shop just across the road. The shopping complex and Zhongshan MRT station were within 5 minutes walk. For a 3-star hotel with 5-star service, this hotel deserves high rating.

I stayed at an elite room from May 19 to 21, 2014. The room is clean, bigger than I expected, and got everything that I need. Staff are polite, helpful and friendly. Everything is good except that the towels got some weird smell. This is my second stay at the Dandy chain (last time at Daan Park) and it is always satisfactory. I will definitely stay again at Dandy when I visit Taipei next time.

The staff there is always helpful, and very respectful. The hotel is clean and well situated in the heart of the city - near a Metro station (at least the Tianjin Branch of Dandy Hotel). If i were to go to Taipei again I would book a room to the same Hotel.

This is the second time I visit to Taipei.

We booked two family rooms stay for 4 nights. One room for 3 adults and another room for 3 adults + 1 three years old son. But we didn't receive the kid slipper and kid tooth brush as per the customer reviews of Agoda.

I did some researches to compare the hotel location with the price they charge, Dandy hotel TianJin branch consider charge a reasonable price with the 5 mins walking distance to ZhongShan MRT. Personally I love to stay around ZhongShan MRT area as it is close to many of my flavour restaurants, Shin Kong Mitsukoshi and only one station to Taipei Main Station.

Welcome smile of the staff in reception everyday whenever u go out or back to the hotel . Chocolate cake mentioned make by their chef place at the counter for guest was so delicious, we like it so much but not for selling.

Each floor only 1 family room so we arranged to stay in different level 2 and 5.

Hotel design was simple but modern. Room was clean and cozy.
They provide facial cleanser (this is i seldom see in the hotel's toiletries), all brand of 依必朗www.ibl.com.tw. Others like essential oil for bath tub use and safety box provided.

The position they fixed the water tap for basin is quite not appropriate side as the water will leak out from the basin if you open too little water. End up the basin looks so messy!
Too little hanger provided for a room stay for 3 person.

Self-service laundry with detergent powder all free. This is very useful for us to bring a young kid and 8 days tour in Taiwan.

Breakfast to me it is average, felt bored on the third day due to not much variety.

7-11, bread shop, Japanese ramen and foods all around 1-2 minutes walking distance.

They help me keep and freeze my deliver frozen cakes upon my requested for one day till I leave hotel to airport.
Definitely will go back to this hotel again.

Room Tip: I stayed in Family room level 2, convenient to get in and out of hotel; self-service laundry at Lob...

Take your time; enjoy the independent natural lifestyle of this hotel in the city.The “Dandy Hotel” Tianjin Branch in the Zhongshen district revealed new version of an old Taiwan hotel that stands on a new world stage. After a completely new remodeling, the Dandy hotel still shows you traces of history from the unique balcony of the 50’s. Stand on the balcony and recall the era of 50 years ago, when so many high officials and leaders visited here!The “Prince Hotel” opened at Hachijoudoori and Tianjin St. corner in 1960. It used to be a tourist hotel to host foreign tourists, which very few hotels in Taipei could do; plus the hotel was close to the American Ambassador Residency (which now has become the Spot-Taipei Film House), and was located on Tainjin St. where Japanese tourists gathered. Therefore, the Hotel was also a social place for officials and leaders.The Prince Hotel, with almost 50years of history, had become worn down by time and turned thoroughly obsolete. However, four professional teams, such as those from CityInn Hotel and Hotel 73, spend several months reorganizing it. You may find that the signboard of the old Prince Hotel is gone if you pass by the corner of Tainjin St. What has taken it over is and all white northern European building; the Prince Hotel has been renamed the “Dandy Hotel.” ... more   less
