We stayed 3 nights at the Dong Wu hotel in 2 different times. 2 nights from Thursday till Saturday and 1 night from the next Tuesday till Wednesday.

We chose this hotel because it was rather cheap, with good location in Taipei and it seemed cleaned on the pictures.

The hotel was all that. We had very comfortable rooms, decent breakfast, it was not too far from the city center by taxi (Taxi are really cheap in Taiwan). First nights we had a nice room with windows. Second night we booked 2 rooms. First one with window was as good standards as the first one but the second one without window smelled a bit of humidity.

Breakfast was asian style breakfast, you could get some toast and fruits but their speciality is really breakfast for Chinese and Japanese guests.

Bathroom was very clean and tooth brush, soap, shampoo, comb and razors were provided.

On the whole, we were quite happy with the hotel and would go back there again. We would ask for a room with window though to avoid damp smelling room.

Room Tip: Ask a room with window to avoid humidity smell.

Great hotel, location is convenient to MRT. it cost roughly $30USD to and from the airport. Staff is kind and friendly, rooms are clean and well maintained. The breakfast buffet offered variety on a daily basis. Beds were comfortable and we slept well. Overall we were very happy with the hotel.

Spent four nights here with spouse on holiday. Took Evergreen bus from TPE airport for NT $150 each. Taxi was NT$90 from bus stop to hotel. Check in at 11pm fast and easy. Room #2805 on 8th floor was business superior double with window for $77 US/night. Spend the extra for the window if you like natural light to wake you up. Not all rooms have a window.

Room well-appointed and comfortable, clean, and quiet. nice kettle with coffee packets and tea. Free breakfast was complete and tasty. Free computer in breakfast room, as well as large selection of newspapers and magazines. Nice bathroom amenities, too. 2 bottles of water daily. Good location, close to Di Hua Street and public transport.

Ida and Amelia were very friendly and helpful, and spoke excellent English. They arranged a taxi to the airport (our flight left at 6:30am) that was on-time.

Will stay here again when we return to Taipei.

Stayed at Dong Wu for 8 nights during our 17 day trip to Taiwan. Used it as a base for seeing Taipei and then returning between vists to the Taroko and Alishan areas. The three rooms we had were well appointed, very clean and laundry done within a couple of hours of requesting the service. Breakfast had good choices and lovely coffee. The reception staff were brilliant both helpful and friendly, their language skills excellent. Easily accessible from Daqioutou Metro station, passing a very friendly family mart for snacks and drinks. From the outside the hotel entrance is surrounded by scooters and repair outlets, don't let that put you off excellent hotel with superb staff.

Stayed for 3 nights, everything is good , breakfast is good, room is clean and spacious, all amenities provided. There's a coin-operated laundry machines nearby if you don't want to use the hotel's laundry service which is more expensive. We requested for a quiet room on higher floor and was given a room on the 9th floor. The only negative is that the water from the shower is not strong enough. Will be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: Request for a quiet room on higher floor.

I think it's pretty hard to find a hotel like this in Taipei. The staff are friendly and helpful, our room is clean, the breakfast buffet has great selections, the location is convenient, and best of all, it's the cheapest hotel with all these amenities in Taipei, it really deserves the award!
