“Convenient, quiet, not bad at all”
Reviewed 14 July 2011

Small hotel within walking distance to Xi Men Ding MRT. And because the hotel is located not right smack of the street, but at the end, it is rather quiet even though the streets further down are rowdy.

The rooms are a little small, however beds are comfortable. Counter staffs are friendly. One minus point: Breakfast's the same every single day. But hey! if you are staying at East Dragon, you dont really need hotel food. Just cross the street or walk further down Xi Men Ding and you'll easy get stalls serving local breakfast. Hotel provides with hot and cold water dispensing on each level. Found that a plus. We didn't have to purchase bottled water nor boil water everyday.

i stay with east dragon during feb 11 trip. it was my 1st time n i felt is very convenenient as just a road across, it is ximending. the hotel still upgrade our room without any charges. their service was good, friendly, helpful.. to help us carry our luggauges to the cab when we were getting ready to the airport.

So, oct 11 we will be going to ximending again, we would like to book back this hotel but was informed by hotelclub that it is fully book..we tried priceline, but they did not show the pricing so we are unable to book too. Feel abit disppointed.

Checked in on 17-May, upgrade to room for 3 person after seeing the 2 person room which do not have much space to move around esp with my 2 big luggage bags after 8-days round island tour ! Toilet is big with hot shower but bath tub pretty slippery, almost fell twice. Aircon is powerful & room is clean with wifi & windows.

No towels were available when check into room. 2nd day towel given got big hole. Got 2 cleaners, one is good the other older lady is grouchy & not that friendly.

With the above issues aside, counter staffs are very friendly & helpful. Location is superb, across the road is xinmengting food street (the porridge, fried oyster, is yummy), 永和豆桨, 三兄弟豆花,Starbucks, Watson Nearby got 鸭肉遍,阿忠面线,杨桃冰(next to mrt) etc Can also take bus no 307 to ChiaTe (佳德饼店, alight at 南京三民路站), famous for 太阳饼,凰梨酥。
Bf are egg & ham, coffee, buns, orange juice, tea (not bad but only issue is same menu daily).
U can also book a cab to airport via counter at NT1000. TV is not LCD, but 14" tube type, rm come with 2 sofa chair & round table. Hot water dispenser is available outside room, small size lifts, helpful bellboys, direct opp hotel got a 饼店, good for last minute buying of 风梨酥(pineapple tarts) etc... Also few tailor shops around if required any tailoring. Movie theaters also a handful nearby in ximengting (西门町. Bed still provide comfy sleep. Overall a good stay & highly recommend for those looking for easy accessibilty to other part of taipei & also late sleeper who can still roam around the bustling ximengting where shops & eatery open close to midnight :)

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Hotel conveniently located at the quiet end of Ximending shopping area and about 5-10 mins walk to Ximen station. The people at the front desk are friendly and they gave several recommendations on where to go.

Room is clean and spacious. The housekeeper tidies the room everyday. There is also a hot and cold water dispenser in the lift lobby area. Free wifi, but not exactly that strong (on the 7th floor). Pretty much met my expectations for the price paid. Breakfast served every morning is the same - Eggs, ham, bread, orange juice and a choice of green tea or red tea.

The hotel has full occupancy on some nights when I stayed there, so be sure to book in advance. Overall, I am satisfied with my stay and I would definitely stay in East Dragon Hotel when I go Taipei. Oh yes... for those who would like to buy some local products back, there is a shop opposite the hotel which sells them and it's yummy!

We were a group of 10 and we stayed in 2 family rooms with one extra bed in each room. The room wasn't big enough but we were still able to move around considering there were 5 of us to a room. Both rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean.

The breakfast was the same every single day but it wasn't that big of a deal since there were a lot of restaurants close to the hotel.

Location was great! Only a few minutes walk to the bustling Ximending shopping area and to Ximen Mrt station. Taipei main station is about 10min walk from the hotel.

The staff were always helpful. I'll definitely stay at this hotel again.
