“More of a 3.5*”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2010

Dream House's website states that it's a 5* style hotel ... Not exactly.

Getting to Dream House took a serious bit of searching - three cabbies, two long term Taipei residents (my family) and ourselves all got lost. We finally found it in a dark alley way off the larger streets. It's about a 15 - 20 minutes LONG walk from Taipei main station. The service is near impeccable - friendly, approachable and professional. The space is bright and clean. The decor is a bit dated in style with the peach, sea foam green and light wood setup but the sheets were definitely cotton of at least 250 thread count and it's a down comforter in the duvet. We immediately took a hot shower since we just escaped from TaiwanMex - great pressure and plenty of hot water! It might throw people off a bit b/c the shower is right over the toilet and essentially the whole bathroom turns into to a large shower stall. Love the en-suite washer/dryer setup. The water kettle, microwave and fridge is nice but w/out any plates/bowls, it was rather pointless since a good bit of take away food is wrapped in paper, plastic baggies, or styrofoam.

Overall a pleasant stay. Wish it was located at a more convenient location as we had to use cabs almost exclusively. Otherwise, we'd pay more to go back.

I stayed in Dream House after reading the previous recommendation and was similarly impressed. Everything feels very new and clean. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms even come with their own washing machine which was useful to me after a week of traveling. I was also surprised by how reasonably priced the rooms were. Highly recommended.
(Not being a Chinese speaker, I was unable to book the room online, but I sent them an email and they were happy to reserve a room for me.)

Dream House is a fairly new business suite hotel, within 10 minute walking distance of the Taipei main train and bus stations and a block away from a huge underground shopping mall. It has a lovely lobby sitting area, and pleasantly designed rooms with comfortable bedding and modern plumbing. The rooms are set up very efficiently. The room my son and I stayed in had a queen-sized bed, small sofa, desk and chair, lots of closet and cabinet space, a bathroom with shower, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, washing machine, air conditioner, and large flat-screen TV, as well as free internet access. The hotel is also very secure, with card access to the building. There is 24 hour front desk staffing, and the staff are very, very friendly and helpful. They gave us good advice and helped us arrange tours, order food, and figure out how to get around the area. We felt very well taken care of .
