“A Taipei gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed at the Daan Park branch of the Dandy hotel which we found to be a truly excellent small hotel. Situated next to Daan park it was central to the places we wanted to visit in Taipei.Our room overlooked the street to the park. It is well described as boutique. It does not have extensive range of services such as restaurants, pools and gyms.
It was well appointed with a queen sized bed with a firm mattress, There was a a walk in shower ( which we had requested )and modern fittings. The hotel was " no smoking " throughout.

Breakfast was included in the room tariff and was served in a spacious dining area. A wide variety of breakfast experiences were catered for in the selection on offer.

But it was the warmth and helpfulness of the reception staff which was the most memorable feature of our stay. This facilitated our visit and made that visit a pleasant and enjoyable.

In short this hotel is central, comfortable and affordable.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are windowless. If this is a problem best specify a room with a window.

This hotel is kinda like a cute boutique hotel! We had a comfortable stay here, plus, the service was good -- from the reception desk to the restaurant. The receptionists were very hospitable; while one of the waiters at the restaurant noticed that I was going through their array of food when settling with fried rice but taking out the meat, he asked me if I wanted their chef to make a bowl of vegetarian friend rice for me.

The room was also clean, nothing to complain here. It's just that I think there must be some sort of drainage problem when we arrived because we smelled a little stank that came from the bathroom so we had to open the balcony door to let the smell out. It was tolerable and I'm sure it's not the cleaning lady's fault.

This hotel is also walking distance to a lot of stores along the road (like a few blocks from it), and the famous original Din Tai Feng.

Was with a group of 20 old folks, thanks to the extremely helpful and patience staff for bearing with me at time of checking in and out (esp with the noise we made!). Not forgetting the kindness of the desk staff on duty helping the old folks loading their luggages on to the bus. Thumbs up!
Extremely friendly and helpful people, pleasant and stylish rooms, perfect location (even better after the rail service commencing in Nov). Keep up the good work~.

This was an excellent hotel for a practical traveler. Rooms were small but well designed and comfortable. I was ill on my recent stay and found the room a comfortable refuge. The service was attentive, friendly and welcoming. Desk staff made sure to let us know that they recognized us as we came and went. Several small amenities made a lot of difference. Off the lobby there is a small laundromat that made it easy to keep up with laundry in a stay of 1 1/2 weeks. At the entrance of the hotel is a bin full of umbrellas which helped a great deal as we were visiting during the passage of Typhoon Usagi. Breakfast was ample, even for a vegetarian and we were able to request a vegetarian entree, usually fried rice with egg, which was actually unneccessary most of the time given the variety of offerings including some form of eggs. My only criticism of breakfast was the limited area of juices and rather average coffee. This place has earned an endorsement from Tripadvisor and justifiably so! Alas, no fitness facilities, although there are swimming pools nearby.

Room Tip: 9th floor seems to have the bridal suites.

Reserved 6 nights with Dandy via Agoda for quite a competitive rate. Read all the good reviews from both Agoda and Tripadvisor, and was really looking forward to the stay.

Arrived on schedule, except that our luggages were lost in transit in HK. When we first stepped into the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by our names immediately. Apparently, CX had called Dandy to inform them that they would be sending in our luggages later in the evening, and the Receptionist, Krystal, had been eagerly awaiting for our arrival to update us with the latest development of our misplaced luggages.

Check-in was hassle free, since we've paid for everything through Agoda. All Krsytal requested from us was our passports for verification. Though the room was stocked with minibar items, she didn't even bother to request for a credit card deposit! To me, that's an incredible amount of trust she had in us! Wow!

Room was small, but adequately furnished for a pleasant stay. Our room has the magnificent view of Daan Park, and indeed, the view was breathtaking! First moment within the room was confusing, 'cos we couldn't figure out where the light controls were. Then we realized that Dandy had centralized all controls into a remote control unit, placed right beside the bed. So we'll have to make use of the remote control for adjusting all lighting units and air-conditioning. TV does have its own separate remote control though.

Bathroom was clean, and surprisingly, there was an attached jacuzzi next to the shower area! That really brightened up our stay, as my son enjoyed his bath time thoroughly!

One of the selling points of this hotel was its buffet breakfast, located at B1 of the hotel. The spread was good, and as mentioned in all reviews, the services were excellent. We were particularly thrilled to be entertained by the violinist who played a variety of songs to liven up our spirits on a moody typhoon day!

During the rest of our stay, the housekeeping team did an excellent job to tidy up our messy room (filled with quite a fair bit of late night suppers from both the night markets and next-door's 7/11). But I'd say that the best part of this hotel is the impeccable services provided by Krystal and her coworkers attending to the front desk. They'd be providing weather information to one customer, pointing out on the map the route directions to another, and then simultaneously assisting check-in / check-out guests. On some days when their hands weren't so full, Krsytal even helped carried our pram, sheltered us with umbrellas to the cab, and helping us carry our shopping bags when we arrived back from our retail therapy! Maybe it's because this is a small hotel, and that the staffs are expected to multitask whenever possible, but I say these staffs are indeed doing an excellent job, and so much better than those mediocre 4-star hotels' staffs!

Well done, Krysta & staffsl! You certainly took pride in your job and had done well!

Am currently staying here and checking out tomorrow. 6days here and I only have good comments and memories for the cleanliness and the deco of this place. On some days, there's a violin player providing live music at breakfast...where can u get that????

All furniture is well maintained and also sheets are bright and clean..probably explains why they are currently ranked 9??

Great place overall, I will stay here again anytime.

The room was very clean and the facilities were very excellent. The location was not bad. I had to walk about 5~7 minutes from the mrt station but there were many bus stop near the hotel. Most of all, the staffs were very excellent and friendly. If I visit in Taiwan next time, I will stay here again!!
