I always trust trip advisor's review, and I'm glad I did. It's a small hotel in quiet part of taipei (Tianmu). There're American and Japanese school nearby. Closest Subway station is Zhishan, 15min walk, but there are bus stop outside of hotel that will take you to Zhishan station or taipei main station. Bus comes very often during weekday. Recommend to get an easy card at metro station instead of one day ticket if you're staying more than a couple of days. You have to deposit around $17 at first, but you can use it for bus or metro, and $17 covered 7 days for me because transportation in taiwan is affordable. This way, you don't have to walk to metro station from hotel, you can get on bus to metro station, but it's a nice walk to station. The reason why I'm writing this is because I was worried about location of hotel before I booked it, and I'm sure some of you too. Hotel is spotless, hip, but not trying too hard.. Breakfast buffet was excellent, and my favorite part of this hotel was their espresso machine!! you can drink excellent coffee or latte anytime, it was awesome. Laundry room right next to check in counter, you can use it for free anytime. No iron in your room, but there is one in laundry room. Room is very very simple and clean.( Flat screen tv, small refrigerators with bottle of water, private toilet room, nice clean shower) They can arrange shuttle pick up from Airport around $50, and going back is around $40. Drivers don't speak english, but they're very nice. Recommend to walk around hotel area not just to metro station, but other side towards tianmu square. I founda grocery store and some restaurants locals go to. If you want to be on busy street with more tourists, you may want to stay around zhongshan area close to main station, if you want to be in peaceful and quiet residential area, but easy access to metro, don't look anywhere else. You can't beat this price with free breakfast and laundry. I'm already planning to go back to Taiwan next year because it was such a nice trip, and going to stay at Dandy hotel again for sure.
