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
My stay was great in Hotel proverbs. The staff are so polite and helpful, the rooms are clean and of good quality, the restaurant is excellent although just some work on a western breakfast would be great. I would recommend this as a number 1 place to stay. Thankyou
餐廳的餐點跟服務很棒! 飯店位置方便，附近很多在地小吃，不用擔心肚子餓! 泳池有點小，但是很適合在臺北盛夏時消暑。Awesome location and the service is more than what we expected! The restaurant serves great food with excellent attentive service. The pool isn't big but good for a summer chill. Would definitely come back for stay of a few days and book with hotel directly.
The staffs are super supportive and we have a lovely staying in the hotel. There is various food in mini bar and the cocktails bar in the hotel was also wonderful. Definitely recommend couples to stay here.
