Very nice, clean hotel close to Daqiaotou MRT station. Interesting breakfast selection with something for everyone. You can ask the Chef to prepare our eggs however you want at no extra charge.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the back are big and quiet

We arrived late for our check-in due to an inability to get an earlier flight. However, when we reached Dong Wu at close to 1 a.m, the staff were friendly and professional. Rooms come with internet access, but the wireless signal is rather weak for the last room on each level.

The breakfast was good as well, a simple spread with minimal frills. Should you desire a more Taiwanese-styled breakfast, it can be found near the Chinese temple just across road from Dong Wu hotel.

There is a 7-11(convenience store) located just next to it as well. You'd probably need to buy some more drinking water from it should you not want to boil your own. Dong Wu only provide 2 bottles daily per room.

The subway is about 10 minutes walk to the orange line and 15 minutes to the red line. However, it is a hassle to keep changing trains to the Blue line where most of the attractions in Taipei are, especially in the mornings.

Supper can be bought at a night market just next to the entrance to the underpass to the Orange line station.

Checking out is a breeze, the staff can even help you arrange for an airport transfer.

We are checking out today and I hate to go. This is the best hotel I have stayed at during my travels in Asia. Even the budget rooms are nice- super clean with comfortable beds and a great working aircon, fridge, safes, cable tv with international channels. It is close to the MRT and taxis to main station are cheap. Right next to a 24/7 7-11 that has everything. There is a tourist night market nearby where you can get street food, and a daily market where you can buy beautiful cloth, and woven items. They will help you phone people in town, or do anything like that. They think of everything to make your stay easy. The staff are all wonderful and do a lot of extra nice things-umbrellas to lend, computers with skype and printers ( and paper!) . The house keeper even rehung our laundry for us on coat hangers so it would dry better. Oh I almost forgot- great breakfast with Asia and western style choices!
The only problem is now I am going to compare all other hotels to the Dong-wu!

I booked and stayed at Dong Wu Hotel from 21-Nov to 27-Nov 2011 after reading all the hotel reviews from tripadvisor.com. The room was spacious and very clean. The staffs are helpful. And the hotel is near to Daqiaotou MRT and Carrefour. We have a great stay at Taipei.

I booked this hotel in Tapei at time when it was hard to get rooms, but took this place based on its TripAdvisor reviews.

Everything about the place is good: the location, the service on arrival, check in process, room quality, service throughout (free coffee, internet stations with Mac giant screens, strong and reliable wi fi on all floors), breakfast, and cosiness.

Only thing I could recommend they do is replace the carpets with laminated wood floors (or real wood) when they next renovate. Carpet is tired and dusty and I am not a fan of it in any hotel.

Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 10th floor nice light and bit of a view. Elevator is fast. We stayed Room 1003 and it...

Everything is good except the receptionist. He is not good in his job and unhappy to help others.

stayed with my husband for 5 nights. The room was quite big and very clean. The staff is English speaking and very helpfull. Every question we asked was answered very politely, every recomandation we looked for was given and was good and any help we needeed in buying tickets for the HSR in Chinese from 7-eleven for example was taken care of by one of the staff in person. Service was wonderful!!! Breakfast was good! location was very good too, only 5-7 minutes walk from a MRT station and a 10 minutes drive in a taxi (NT$125) from cental bus station and Taipei main station. Great value for money!!!

Room Tip: the business suite is very spacious
