Reached the hotel at midnight and the check in was fast. Thinking of late arrival, the staff even prepared few plates of sandwich deliver to room. The cleanliness of room and bathroom are one of the best i've stayed so far. Good buffet breakfast with live music (violin) ! Stayed 1 night and continued the stay the 4th and 5th day in Taipei.

Very pleasant 9 day stay at the Tianmu Dandy Hotel in October 2012. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke really good english. Modern Rooms were spotlessly clean, and bottles of water was provided everyday with your housekeeping. Free Breakfast buffet provided plentiful hot food, both chinese and western. Free wifi was also very helpful. Would stay at this hotel again my next visit to Taiwan!

Online rates are a better deal then upfront fee at front desk. But if you mention the online rates, the staff are willing to accomodate!

We arrived via hotel airport car service (which is also highly recommended)..on a 2 hr delayed flight arriving at almost midnight on a tuesday. Asked the front desk if there was any local place to eat since we were hungry. To our surprise, they said "we prepared sandwiches for your arrival since it is so late! will bring to your room in 10 minutes!Would you like coffee or tea with it? " Best service ever!!!

This was an outstanding experience staying at the Dandy in Tianmu. Rooms are very affordable, they were clean and well maintained by housekeeping every single day. The breakfast was a very good mix of Western and Traditional foods and the staff were super professional and friendly from the valet parking, front desk staff, housekeeping and the managers. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a very clean, affordable place to stay in Tianmu/Taipei area.

Room Tip: The rooms are very clean. We stayed on the fifth floor and view was just to the outside of another...

On arrival in the taxi we wondered if this was the right place, tucked away in a small side street, off the main shopping area. After staying for three nights we were very pleased it was, it was so quiet. The hotel looks small from the outside but inside it is light, airy, minimilistic, with modern decor. We received a very warm friendly welcome from the staff who soon had us booked in.

Our room was small but very clean with lots of modern touches. Crisp white bed linen but the pillows were a little hard for us. The bathroom was excellent with an ultra modern shower and a panasonic toilet with all the gadgets. There is a safe and fridge.
The hotel had a brilliant laundry room which was very welcome. Thank you Dandy.

The buffet breakfast was available in a small seating area near reception. The cuisine was suitable for both eastern and western tastes and the attentive staff ensured the dishes were well stocked. There was complimentary tea, coffee and juice throughout the day, which was very much appreciated after a day out.

We purchased travel cards ($100 refundable deposit and $100 minimum payment) to use on the buses and MRT. Local transport was available along the Zhongshan N.Rd at regular intervals. The nearest MRT is Zhishan station, a twenty minute walk along Zhongshan N.Rd to Sogo Department store, turn right just behind the store and the station is across the next road junction. Taxis are plentiful and cheap.

We would like to say thankyou very much to Evie, Rosie and especially Steven who was extremely helpful and really looked after us.

All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the Dandy Tianmu deserves to be number one for a boutique hotel.

I stayed a total of eight nights at Dandy Hotel for the first time in Taipei and I must say it is "THE" designated hotel I will choose to come back for my future visits to Taipei; the breakfast buffet was excellent, with both traditional Taiwanese-style congee and soybean milk as well as western style eggs, sausages, fresh fruits and salad bar, the menu changes every day so if you get tired of the same food easily, you won't experience that here. They also hire a professional violinist to come and play LIVE music and sing during breakfast hours, it takes a morning breakfast experience to a whole new level, the violinist was great, he played a variety of music and he sang well in both English and Taiwanese, I really enjoyed listening to him. The room is comfortable and quiet, my room is on the 8th floor and it provides a quiet night's rest every day, although the hotel is close to the main street I never heard main street traffic, if you are looking for a quiet oasis in buzzing Taipei this is the right hotel for you. I am not a walker when I visit other cities, but I enjoyed my morning and evening walks in the Tianmu area, it is a bit far from the MRT and you need to take a taxi to get there for about $90 NT one-way, the taxis are very convenient in Taipei so it wasn't an issue for me. This hotel also attracts a very pleasant international crowd, the staff is the best, Ruby is extremely helpful and friendly, she makes me appreciate "Taiwanese Style Hospitality" a whole new way with her smile and professionalism, I am very satisfied with the accommodation experience over all. Last but not least, they offer "State of the Art" restroom facilities for women on the first floor lobby area, just when you think you have covered all the five-star qualities this hotel offers at a much more reasonable price: they provide all female needs items for free and it is something I have never seen in any other hotels around the world, I appreciate this level of thoughtfulness and attention to details. I have stayed at very nice boutique hotels in both New York and Paris, and honestly, the Dandy Hotel in Tianmu is now my most favorite hotel above all, they made me feel at home and provided ease and support with timely bilingual assistance: Will Be Back !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. I travel for work, and stay at hotels every week, but the Dandy stands out and far exceeds even a ritz carlton.
The staff went above and beyond to research and print out things to do/see/places to eat, gyms etc. The security guard would even refill glasses of water with a smile. The rooms are clean and new. The televisions were huge! The lounge had snacks everyday and all day. the breakfast was typical. The best part of this hotel was the laundry room! traveling on the road, this was a huge perk! They have modern washers and dryers, they provided detergent, it made my 6th week on the road easy and more enjoyable.
This hotel is in a great location to malls (sogo) and restaurants and local food joints.
the wifi was great and they had new mac's available to use!
