Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This hotel is wonderful, clean rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast, good price; the only drawback is that this hotel is not by an MRT station. It’s a short drive from the hotel to the subway station, so if you have a car, or don’t mind getting a taxi, this hotel is definitely one of the best-value hotels in Taipei city. I will stay here again next time I visit Taipei city.

We have been here some 6 times now, since it is very well located for our business purposes. The upgrade to a Dandy hotel 2 years ago has worked out very well. The staff is even more friendly than the normal Taiwanese already is. The laundromat is a real boon and very helpful during our travels, printing services are great and the rooms have been remodelled in a very efficient way. Just one request: Have one wifi system all over the hotel. Now one keeps switching from one receiver to the other. We´ll be back.

Stayed here in mid December last year. It is located in a nice neighbourhood, and the rooms are well furnished. To sum up this hotel in one word, it would be 'professional'. Staff are professional and the hotel is well run. The problem was that I had stayed at their sister property (see my review of the Ambience hotel), and this allowed me to make comparisons, not all of which were in Dandy's favor. For a start, the breakfast at Dandy's, though good, was not as great as that of Ambience. The service, though professional, strangely came off as a bit cold. Mind you, there wasn't anything wrong in that staff greeted you and you were made to feel welcome, but it lacked the extra warmth provided by staff at the Ambience. What was better at Dandy's is location - location wise, it is far better than that of Ambience and you will do better to stay here if you want to explore the other side of town without having to take the subway for a prolonged period of time. Also, it is situated in a nice neighbourhood with a huge and upscale Sogo department store nearby and a multitude of higher end shops. Overall, would highly recommend staying here - it is a professionally run hotel and worth the price.

This is the second time i visit Dandy Hotel - Tianmu Branch. Although is a little off the way, but what make us return is their top notch service. Their service standard is comparable to any 5 stars hotel that i ever visited.
But for this trip, I am a little disappointed. The warmth from the staff had became milder as compare to my previous visit that i experience 1 year ago. That day my fiancee and I got to check in the hotel in the middle of the night due to the reason we came from Tai Zhong after choosing our wedding photos.
It took us 45 mins for the train ride and the taxi took us 20 mins, by the time we reach the hotel, both of us are very tired with all the travelling, since the previous experience is fantastic, I am actually expecting the staff will walk out of their counter to help us with our luggage, because Dandy had a very steep staircase and slope, but to my dismay they didn't. When we approach the counter, though their checking in procedure is very fast, but the lady staff is pretty monotonous, except for the trainee, at least he put on a smile. I really understand that graveyard shift is very tired, but I think every staff needs to uphold the hotel service standard, as I don't think it is easy for a hotel to be number 1 choice in tripadvisor, and it is also because of the previous fantastic experience, that is why we choose to come back.
Other than this everything is pretty normal, their staff in the day time is more lively at least they acknowledge us when we walk pass. Ultimately Dandy Tianmu Branch still a very nice place to stay, we still like the idea of having a violinist to play songs while we are having our breakfast, it brighten up our day.

Room Tip: Nothing in particular, first time i was given a room at the 8th floor this time is 7th floor. Seems...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for once again selecting Dandy Hotel- Tianmu on your trip to Taiwan and taking your precious time to share your experience to help us improve on Tripadvisor.

I deeply regret to learn that your second visit was not up to your expectation. I have immediately reviewed and shared your comment thoroughly with all the related staffs. After further investigation, I found that our doorman and the lady staff had been both occupied by other guests and failed to properly deliver their greetings onto your arrival and registration. Furthermore, we will do our best to upgrade our service quality in every aspect to provide a memorable experience to travellers of Dandy Hotel.

On behalf of Dandy Hotel -Tianmu, I sincerely apologize for your defective lodging experience this time. Hope we can have an opportunity to welcoming you and your fiancée back again in the future!

Yours Faithfully,

There is a reason this is no 1 and this primarily reflects the great value & superb customer service & support. The staff are great and extremely helpful in optimising your stay.

I had planned to meet 2 friends here and unfortunately at the last minute they had to cancel due to an medical emergency. Although there was no obligation to do so the Dandy immediately by return confirmed there would be no problem with the refund. Larger & better known hotels could learn a lot from the Dandy team....

Rooms are more than adequate and very well designed - certainly a lot more comfortable than many others at much higher price points. The breakfast is also good & offers a number of different options. The free wifi works well. The decor throughout the hotel is themed and fun. It also very practically has a set of scales in reception for guests to check their luggage - what a great idea!

As raised by others a possible issue could be its location in the north of Taipei but this in part depends on what you plan do it as it Is quite far from downtown Taipei as defined by the upmarket shopping & Taipei 101. This was not an issue for me (or I suspect most visitors) as I explored outside Taipei on most days (Mountains and sea are all within half hour / 1 hour) and in most cases I was picked up directly at the hotel.

Nevertheless for those that need it the MTR is easily accessible via a twenty five minute walk or short taxi ride. In fact the hotel is very convenient for spots in the north of the city eg a twenty minute taxi ride to the National Museum (NTD 150) or half hour drive to the Beitou hot springs / Yangmishan NP.

Highly Recommended as a great value, friendly and comfortable base in Taipei

I only stayed one night at Dandy Tianmu Hotel, but that is enough to see that this is a quality hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and took care of everything I need. Other than the hall (could use a little update) the hotel was modern with I nice look and feel. The rooms are a little small for american standards, but everything else about the room is great. There was no view from my room and it may not be in the best location for sightseeing, but it is close to a bus station and it is easy to you the mass transit system in Taipei. The hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, bars, and convenience stores.

I am very glad to know that our service could meet your standard. Your comment are the best encouragement to all of the staff. I have noted down your feedback about the hall and room space. We will seek possible way to improve it in future renovation. Furthermore, as you mention the hotel located closely to a bus station, we have proposed a collaboration program to Easy Card Company. I believe that you will find it more convenient and easy to travel in Taipei City by public transportation from Dandy Tianmu.
