Eh in my life i nv go Laundromats before... and i tot most hotel should have a Laundromats.....................
Yes, most hotels have laundry service. But you are going to TAIWAN! Those smaller, lesser know hotels do not have this facility/service. If you go to the bigger hotels like Grand Hyatt (cost about TWD5140.50), Far Eastern Plaza (cost about TWD6200.00), The Sherwood Taipei (cost about TWD5500.00), The Westin Taipei (cost about TWD5900.00) and Sheraton, Landis, Four Points and Howard Plaza, then they will have laundry service as well as a safe in the hotel room. Please don't assume that all hotels around the world will have the same kind of facilities.

Re Aug 20th Taipei City Party:If you are in Taipei

The "Party" i.e. the Music starts at 7pm on 20th. But at 6 pm , one of the Sponsers will also have some happenings, so Go early and I dont think you will regret it.
Some info from the Newspaper,Scanned it for all to view:Other people also may show up to Jam as they do that often here and I think FIR will also show up.
