Dong Wu Hotel: Where to Stay in Taipei City, Taiwan

Dong Wu Hotel: Where to Stay in Taipei City, Taiwan

Built for practicality at an #affordable rate, the Dong Wu Hotel in Taipei City, #Taiwan is an extremely comfortable choice. We had a very #relaxing stay, and the location was perfect for our starting point to visit the city.


“A little old fashioned but all you need and good value.”

User lillibetdevon couldn’t have been more spot on in her TripAdvisor review. Located just a short walk from Daqiaotou MRT station, Dong Wu isn’t the most modern hotel we’ve stayed in but it’s one of the most comfortable. The rooms are big and fully amenitized, providing modern conveniences like a flat screen satellite TV and wifi access despite the 80s decor. The bed is comfortable with down pillows while the bathroom is spacious and clean with both a shower and bathtub.

One small thing we really enjoyed about the room is the side table with two chairs pictured above. We like drinking beers after a long day of sightseeing so that little setup gave us a comfortable spot to put our feet up and talk about the day’s adventures.

Speaking of beers, there’s a 24-hr Family Mart right next door to the hotel as well, which is another massive plus for any traveler.

As mentioned up top, it’s right next to our favorite convenience store — Family Mart! Woohoo! There’s also a small night market just a few minutes away for late night eats.

If you like staying at places with character, then this hotel isn’t for you. It doesn’t have much in the way of style or charm. But if all you need is a clean and comfortable room at a decent rate, then you’ll be very happy with Dong Wu. 

HOW TO GET THERE:

By subway, get off at Daqiaotou MRT station. Look for exit 3, Yongle Elementary School. Walk down Sec. 2 Yan Ping North Road around 200 meters and you’ll see the hotel on your right side immediately after the Family Mart.
