Design-forward hotel in Taipei’s rapidly developing Eastern District with fabulous beds and thoughtful amenities
Even from the outside, Hotel Proverbs distinguishes itself from Taipei’s other hotels: the black mesh rectilinear façade created by Ray Chen (who also did the interior design) really stands out. Inside, the aesthetic combines a natural palette of grays and browns with copper and leather touches, mid-century modern furniture, and high-tech details like the portable pocket WiFi that the hotel lends to each guest. The wood paneling and floors in the guest rooms can covey the impression that you’re in a very upscale cabin, but the eye-catching grayscale marble in the bathrooms, the Nespresso machines, and the oversized tubs keep things modern and luxe. The restaurant, TK, a glam space with a three-story ceiling, is helmed by Fudy Chen, who has created a menu of carefully sourced steak and seafood; meanwhile, the East End bar is a popular neighborhood spot and does creative cocktails in a gorgeous, industrial chic atmosphere with city views.
In the Area
For travelers, Hotel Proverbs has an excellent location in the quickly growing Da’an District, home to a good number of the Taipei’s shopping and business hubs. Most visitors will want to spend time at SOGO, the mega-department store just a couple of blocks away; it’s easy to while away an afternoon here poring over the goods, picking up souvenirs, and sampling all kinds of Taiwanese food. The nearest metro (MRT) stop, Zhongxiao Fuxing, is a few minutes walk from the hotel, which makes it easy to zip around the city. The famous Liaoning Night Market, open until 11 p.m., is a 15-minute walk away, and the ideal spot to try out local street food.
How to Get There
Would definitely stay here again. Great central location w tons of shops and restaurants nearby. Great service. Great design. Appreciated the pool with the view because nothing helps w jet lag more than exercise.
We had a wonderful stay and will certainly come again. It is luxurious, comfortable and good value for money. It is also very well located right in the heart of the city.
We had a wonderful time and loved the luxurious decor and incredible hotel bar. Thank you for having us!
Service was excellent from everyone in the hotel! The hotel room design is fantastic & good size. Location is excellent, everything around you the moment step out from the hotel! Great shopping district, highly rated restaurant around the corners, and very near to the MRT station. A Designer hotel you should not be missed! We will be back and highly recommend!
