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 is very conveniently located in Da-an Road where it is littered with eateries. The staff are incredibly friendly and my room on level 8 was beautifully furnished and decorated. Also had my check-in conducted in my designated room which was a novelty.
The only downside is that the hotel does not have a fitness centre/gym. Otherwise, it would be perfect. Would definitely stay there again.
If you are looking for a hotel with a fresh approach with a staff working to meet all your needs this is the property for you. Love the style and design from top to bottom. The Craft cocktails Barna third-floor was outstanding as well as the TK’s steakhouse serving American Waygu 5A.
Staying in this boutique hotel in Taipei is better staying in 5 star hotel. Must check out this hotel as the room is definitely unique and spacious with a touch of classic (love the chandelier next to the bed). The room is comfortable with an air purifier and a huge bath tub. A perfect and smooth check in where you arrive the ground floor inform your name ,then the ground floor staff will inform the reception before usher you to the lift and then 3rd floor reception staff will take over and we did light briefing while in the lift to our room and the final signature and authorization upon inside our room. This is definitely first time for me .. and it’s a pleasant encounter and experience. Surrounding of this hotel will a mixture of local & speciality restaurants , cafes and even a magazine library. And they too have those local hawkers food stalls. I must say you need atleast stay 3 nights to explore its surrounding as this Da-an area is the best place to stay , eat & enjoy
We stayed for a long weekend and the service did not disappoint. The mini bar experience allows you to eat almost anything in mini bar unusual for most hotels. The breakfasts were also good. The bathtub is both large and comfortable! A well priced hotel worth seeking out! Very fine experience.
This is a realatively new hotel in the heart of the lively Da’an district in Taipei. It blends old and new in a really beautiful way. The rooms are fairly large and quite unique. Ours had a really comfortable king size bed and a balcony. Each room comes with free: bottled water, munchies, soda, coffee and tea. When we got to our room the TV was on with a message welcoming the two of us - nice touch.
There is also a fun bar and outside cigar/smoking lounge on the 3rd floor although no one was smoking. The bar is quite the local scene on the weekends. The pool on the roof is also quite beautiful and we never saw anyone use it. There is no gym but they do have free passes to a gym complex an Uber away.
The hotel customer service is incredible too. At check - in we had 3 people helping us and explaining everything. Need advice, dinner reservation, the best night market or train tickets they are on it with a smile. The staff makes everything easier and pleasant with their infectious smiles and positive can do attitudes.
A special shout out to Teresa and Winnie, two of the incredibly helpful and special staff. They were so very nice and helpful. We will definitely be back to see them and stay at this nice hotel. If ever you find yourself in Taipei you should stay here. You will be glad that you did. Forgot to mention that it is also very reasonably priced - a great value for the money.
