Coolest Kid on the Block: Hotel Proverbs Taipei

The Urban Room at Hotel Proverbs Taipei.

The Urban Room at Hotel Proverbs Taipei.

Designed by decorated architect Ray Chen, Hotel Proverbs Taipei is a boutique property that lures guests with an industrial, minimalist feel. Conveniently situated in the city’s buzzing Da’an District, the hotel’s exterior is a work of art in itself, formed by lines of black mesh and glass balcony railings. Inside, calm copper shades, warm woods, abundant natural light, and luxurious leather furnishings evoke an atmosphere of refinement, inviting guests to linger for as long as possible. Guestrooms range between 33 and 49 square meters, and each one is a unique space bedecked with an eclectic mix of furniture pieces. Boldly defying the traditional room layout, the property—now a member of Design Hotels—hopes to add an element of surprise and further redefine the guest experience.

Foodies will be drawn to the elegant TK Seafood & Steak, where they can enjoy a sumptuous plate of dry-aged steak and seasonal seafood dishes amid the lavish surroundings of the restaurant. With dim lighting, mirrored ceilings, and crystal chandeliers, patrons will dine feeling like royalty. Post-dinner drinks at East End are a must—sit back, relax, and take your pick from the bar’s extensive selection of classic drinks, molecular blends, and special cocktails, exquisitely crafted by the hands of renowned Japanese mixologist Hidetsugu Ueno. Those with a sweet tooth will want to head to L’idiot Bakery on the first floor, which specializes in freshly-made, hand-kneaded baked goods.
