I go to Taipei yearly because of my job. Last Sept, i decided to prolong my stay and had my hubby follow me there.
I was booked in United Hotel but I wanted some place near the MRT and affordable. Ive looked up Fu Hau already when I was still in Manila so we decided to stay there.
I just made a phone call from my hotel in Taipei and booked two days before my transfer. Id give the staff 85% fluency in English but at least she booked me correctly.
I rode the MRT red line and transferred to the brown line, and exited at the Daan station. It took us just 5 minutes from the station to the hotel, that fast with our luggage!
When we arrived, the receptionist told me that we were upgraded to the next higher type of room. The room was not so big but had basic amenities, clean and moderately stylish. But if this room was an upgrade, how small could the deluxe room be? However, it a nice room and considering its beside the MRT, you wont hear anything from outside.
Anyway, the breakfast buffet is just really basic, something to fill you up. Good thing is that there is a 7-eleven next door so we got our chicken fillet and rice meals and sandwiches there. The 7-Eleven there is really a life saver!
Comparing it to the surroundings of United Hotel, Daan district is a bit darker since establishments close a bit earlier but since this is Taipei, the place is still very safe if you want to go around at night.
1. Buy a 1 or 2 day pass since you'd want to go around and take advantage that its close to the MRT DAAN station and go places! Red line has many places you'd like to visit.
2. Since Daan is on the brown line go to Muzah Zoo and ride the Gondola!!!
3. Sogo dept Store is at the Zongshan Fuxing station (one stop from Daan station) and has Din Tai Fung, City Super and Mos burger. You can even ride the bus to Taoyuan airport from across the Sogo dept store, just ask security guards.
