Review: Dong Wu Hotel Taipei

I booked this hotel based on reviews here and location. It is just a couple blocks from the MRT and the front desk staff are awesome! It was our second trip to Taiwan and having a front desk staff who spoke English well was a blessing. We came in late 2am and there was a front desk clerk awake and waiting for us. Check in was really quick as well.

The room was an interior room, no windows. At first I was a little put off by that but having a dark room after a late flight was great. The room itself was very clean, comfortable bed and pillows. Nice LG flat screen with decent cable channel selection. Well appointed room with fridge, hair drier, airpot for making tea and coffee. Bathroom was big with a tub, marble counters the bathroom and the bedroom. Small selection of soft drinks and beer in the fridge. The room also has a safe, and audio system with speakers built into the ceiling.

Down side? The reviews about the breakfast are accurate, we went down for the breakfast twice at 7am and the food was already cold. To me on a budget hotel like this the breakfast isn’t a big deal. They have a nice coffee machine that brews from fresh ground beans by the cup. How ever eggs, ham etc were all room temp or lower.

If they address the breakfast issues this place would be stellar, but I would stay there again without hesitation. Shop around, you wont find a better deal with a location like this.

Last note, this hotel is clean! I am picky and look at stuff like the back of the TV, tops of pictures etc. This room was spotless. Even the hairdrier had no lint or dust built up. Their staff is top notch.

Room Tip: I would say try an interior room, no noise and stays dark great for sleeping.
