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
The hotel Proverbs in Taipei is a great hotel located in the center of Taipei (though not by the Taipei 101 area). A boutique hotel with a small number of rooms, good room size, free mini bar, stylish but not over the top and very friendly and helpful staff. After having stayed at large hotel chains in Taipei, this was a breath of fresh air. The only thing that needs to be improved is the breakfast selection and quality.
We stayed two nights in the premium room. The stay was pleasant, save that the vintage style requires more maintenance...
The golden bronze walls of the corridor has a lot of fingerprints, which does not look clean. Further, the carpet looks old with chips and therefore we asked the staff to take it away. We discovered that the ceiling in the room was stained too.
Yet, there are lots of restaurants and small local shops within 15 mins walk which is convenient for tourists.
Really beautiful hotel, high quality rooms, great ambiance, friendly staff, really nice area with lots of trendy restaurants and shops. Easy access to MRT. Would definitely stay again next time I'm in Taipei.
非常方便， 周围好吃的好玩的很多， 酒店员工很耐心礼貌，没有健身房但是前台可以给你daypass去小巨蛋健身，冰箱食品除了红酒都可以免费吃。值得下次再来。
Very convenient, a lot of fun around, the hotel staff is very polite and courteous, there is no gym but the front desk can give you daypass to the small egg fitness, refrigerator food can be free of charge in addition to red wine. Worth coming back next time.
Excellent Hotel - very stylish with professional & friendly staff. Great rooms. Well done.
N.B: a proper waiting/seating area in the lobby would be a real plus, especially when you are waiting for a taxi or a meeting.
