Which hotel!! 3* hotels rarely have Laundry service.
City Inn Plus in Ximenting is new and has a couple of Wahing machines for Guests to use Free.
Otherwise ask the Hotel-many coin operated machines(Laundromats) around.The is one opp the Neijiang hotel.
Many 3* hotel have Free Internet. Again many 24hrs internet joints around Ximenting,just ask around.

开封街一段 near 西门町 side should have one coin-operated laundry, if the hotel does not provide it.

Regards to laundry shops, ask the hotel staff, sure have some near to your hotel.

What I did was, sent the clothes to the laundry shop (just across the road from my hotel), pick up 3 days later when I came back from Alisan. Then sent another pile of dirty clothes to the laundry shop again. Pick up 2 days later after coming back from Hualien. Great service and polite staff with about the same rate as Singapore. Minimum 2kg at NT120. The boss even sent the clean clothes to my hotel twice. The laundry shop opposite my house charges minimum 5kg for SGD12.50 and somemore the staff so hostile.
