Reviewed 20 March 2011

We stayed here in Mar'11 for 5 nights. The stay was very good considered the price we paid. We asked for a family room that could accommodate 2 adults and 2 children, and were given a room that came with a double bed, a single bed and a sofa bed. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Free WiFi is available in the room and there are 2 iMac and printing facility available in the cafe.

The room comes with complimentary breakfast. The breakfast was good if you are a Chinese since they serve good variety of taiwanese dishes with porridge. The western breakfast selection was quite limited.


The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even helped us to make a reservation for dinner in a restaurant we had planned to visit.

However, the location of the hotel was not so ideal for tourist. It is a bit off from the main attractions and not much sight-seeing around the hotel. There is a 24-hr 7-eleven just next to the hotel though. As for transportation, it is 5-10 min walk from a metro station (Da Qiao Dou) along the new LuZhou line. The popular Shilin night market is just 3 stations away from this station.

Overall, the stay was good and I would rate it as a good value hotel for tourist who doesn't mind its location.

Good value for your money. Around 8-12 minutes away from the mrt (daquiatou station) Free breakfast was ok, not too outstanding. Room smelled a bit musty, but space was adequate for 2. Just remember that this is a budget hotel, so don't expect too much. Free wifi in the
room, plus 2 macs in the dining area for your connectivity needs.
Big lcd tv in the room was another
plus with good selection of english channels. Staff were english speaking and extremely helpful in
giving directions and providing maps. A 711 nearby is also a big plus. For it's price, Overall
experience was quite satisfying.
By the way, a short walk away is fun cafe, a quaint coffeeshop that serves coffee, tea, cakes and even
dumplings, you got to give it a try.

We stayed at the hotel for one week. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Location is accessible to bus and MRT. Room is spacious and clean. 7-11 is just around the corner. Free internet. Small price to pay ( include buffet breakfast) ; thumbs up for service. Will surely stay in this hotel in next trip.

Really very nice hotel, staff are extremely friendly, accommodating, and helpful, speedy in attending your needs.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Site is quite okay, accessible to mrt and bus stations.

Although some of the breakfast food are a bit cold, but still can be acceptable.

My wife and I were travelling from London to Australia over Christmas and we went via Taipei. We booked the Dong Wu hotel online. I found the web site a bit confusing but things were quickly sorted-out via email. We found the hotel staff very polite and helpful and our room was a good size, clean and well appointed. There is free WLAN and a good choice in the breakfast buffet.The Dong Wu is something of an oasis in a 'traditional’ but perfectly safe area of Taipei. The Metro is nearby, about ten minutes walk away. We hadn’t booked a hotel for the return leg of our journey but the choice was simple, we just re-booked!
