Dandy Hotel - Tianmu Branch

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This hotel is very modern, clean with very friendly staff. The daily breakfast has fair amount of choices. Make sure you check out each floor, each floor is decorated with a different theme focusing on tea. The only down-side is the hotel is quite a distance from MRT (subway), about 15 mins.

Stayed: October 2013

Had wanted to stay at CityInn II but rooms were fully booked, hence have the chance to stay at Dandy Tianmu branch. Both hotels are under the same management, so I'm not worried about the standard, not to mention that Dandy Tianmu is rank #1 in tripadvisor reviews!

No disappointment to the rooms, cleanliness and attitude of the staff there.
Each floor has its own country theme - love it that I went to every floor to take pictures!
Free Wifi, Nacho chips, tea & coffee bags in the room.
Like it that the shower room & the toilet are separated for better convenience as we have 3 people staying together.

They offer daily buffet breakfast as well. Though variety is not as much as the bigger hotels, but it is sufficiently nice already! A sweet surprise to see a violinist playing live on a Monday morning at the cafeteria!

Special mention of a staff - Joey Zhou - the most helpful and friendly staff we met during our stay!

Just an observation, I find the male staff friendlier than the female staff.... they are willing to engage more in conversations with the guests.. whereas the female staff are still polite but do not strike up a conversation or go extra miles to provide information when we approach them to ask for advice.

Lastly, it takes 15-20 mins walk to the nearest mrt station (Zhishan station). This is indeed a long walk especially if you are carrying a lot of things from shopping or feeling tired from a day's walk.

Overall, I would still recommend this hotel to you if you don't mind taking a 15-20 mins walk back to hotel from train station (just to save some $). Other than that, everything else is EXCELLENT!

We needed to be in the Tianmu area close to the Taipei American School for the annual IASAS athletic meets. Three minutes walking distance form the venue, the hotel is perfectly run with newly renovated rooms. Highly recommended.

Although hotel location wasn't the best, we still booked because it was ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. If there were 4 pax, good to get hotel paid airport transfer to hotel at 1000NT with Tripadvisor 200NT discount coupon. Promotion ends 30 Nov 2013. Service here was warm, helpful and personalised. The staff also made us feel at home and cared for. No regrets at all. The room was spotlessly clean and modern with a fancy toilet bowl and centralised touch pad for light control. Surprised welcome cookies as we first entered room. Free mineral water, snacks, coffee and tea for Elite room-type. For family room-type, additional free soft drinks in fridge. More free coffee and tea with hot chocolate and crispy french biscuits and cookies on the house, round the clock, at cafe near lobby. Breakfast was a healthy and good spread. There were Taiwanese porridge, soybean milk with dough sticks, salad, ham, bread, egg, bacon, sausages and cheese, yoghurt, kimchi, Japanese Shoba, milk, juices, fruits and pastry etc. Every day, there would be a few items not the same. I liked the salad with Japanese sauce best. Washing machine, dryer with washing powder for use at no charge. Transport isn't a big problem here. For the budget-conscious, bus to Zhishan MRT (Mini-bus 11), Shilin or Jiantan MRT (Bus 220 and 612) was just across the road. It costs 15NT per trip. If unsure whether to pay on boarding or when alighting, follow the locals. If you do not pay when boarding, pay when you alight. It is perfectly fine with the driver. Most important is to remember to pay. When returning from the city to hotel, get off at bus-stop(Shidong 1st Lane) after Mosburger(landmark to look out for to get to hotel). Still there is the cab to go for. It costs 80 NT to MRT station. Good choice to stay at Dandy, TianMu, when plan to visit places like National Palace Museum, Shilin Night Market, Tamshui and Beitou hotsprings. It would be much nearer. To save cost, get refundable Easy card (500NT best )at any MRT Control Station or 7-Eleven. It gives good discount for travel. It does come with 20NT admin charge, small trade -off, easily off-set with the discount saved on travel . It's deducted when card is returned for refund.No problem with us eventhough no standard wardrobe in bedroom but a walk-in one in the bathroom, no door between bedroom and bathroom, no swimming pool, no gym or room floor is not carpeted as we had a relaxing and an enjoyable time. As such, we would be back when we are in Taipei next time. To sum up, for the price, excellent service, modern and spotlessly clean room with so many freebies included, it would be a hotel worth staying.

Room Tip: Ask for highest floor for the room-type booked.

We stayed here as a family for 2 weeks prior to finding permanent accommodation in Taipei. The Dandy is a small hotel with modern facilities, such as the 'Japanese' style toilets, flat screen TV's and a centralised touch pad to control the light switches. The staff are friendly, helpful and very knowledgable about the local area. Rooms very clean and equipped with a mini-fridge stocked with complimentary water and soft drinks and a kettle, hairdryer, safe and TV. The hotel also has a laundry area with two washing machines and dryers that guests can use free of charge. The only downsides are that the breakfast selection is limited and is catered very much to Asian tastes, however, the hotel is located in an area where restaurants and coffee shops are plentiful. The other one is that it is a 20-25 minute walk/80NT$ cab ride or a 5 minute bus ride to the MRT station. Other than that, we were very happy with our stay and would recommend it to other travelers.

The exterior of the hotel belies what is inside. The Hotel seems to know the approximate time of guest arrivals and so when my taxi stopped at the entrance, a reception staff was already on hand to help me with the luggage. Having stayed in many five star or better hotels, I was still amazed at the level of personal attention bestowed on guests in this hotel. Requests were always met in an agreeable manner. The friendliness and warmth generated by the Staff was absolutely outstanding, particularly Peggy who made you feel that you were talking to a friend instead of a service provider. Breakfast was not exactly sumptious but adequate. Definitely a healthy spread that will not make you feel guilty about taking too much fat or carbo! Room housekeeping was good. The maids appear committed to making up the room as clean as when I first checked in. The only drawback to this hotel might be the distance from the MRT system which is a 80 NT$ by taxi away. While the bus service in Taiwan is adequate, it is quite a challenge to take one because of the strange system adopted to pay one's trip on boarding and getting off. The ride is not pleasant with the drivers driving with sudden stops and jack rabbit starts. However, the profusion of eating places in the vicinity of the hotel more than make up for the relative distance from the metro station. The best compliment I can pay this hotel is to return to it again any day I am in Taipei. For me, there is no other hotel I would stay when I am in Taipei. Truly, a home away from home.
