    One of a kind


    I loved this place: my room (505) was just perfect. All kinds of unusual and unique designer stuff in the room including a bike - which I ould have used. Most importantly besides the design: a great bed. Staff was very friendly and in a sincere - I mean not the fake friendliness in some 5 star properties -way. No breakfast, but there are some good opportunities nearby.

    A unique experience


    We stayed here for our first two nights in Taipei and cannot recommend Play Design Hotel enough. The hotel is well located a 7-8 minute walk from the Zhongshan MRT station, with many 7-11s, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants located nearby. It is also 10 minutes walk from the lovely Dihua street and the bus to the National Palace Museum. We were warmly greeted by Gina and given cold water and a thoughtful map produced by the hotel, as well as personal recommendations for local dining and bespoke dining. We then explored the local area including Dihua street and returned to check in approximately 3pm. We stayed in the room designed by Japanese artist Naho Ogawa and it was amazing. I couldn't possibly explain in detail all the thoughtful designs and finishing touches included in the room, but suffice to say it was spacious, modern, comfortable, had an amazing shower, and a beautiful view of Taipei 101! The dual washer/dryer was much appreciated too. Our friend stayed in the Tea room and this was beautiful also. This is a great place to base your holiday in this wonderful city and I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Something Different!


    My wife had to go to Taipei and Play Design Hotel was recommended to us. This place is basically a cross of a boutique hotel and a Airbnb. Location on a reasonably quiet street was very convenient for us with the MRT about an easy 10 min walk away. Easy access to grocery shops, coffee bars, restaurants and of course the Ningxia night market. The rooms are basically styled in the industrial concrete look fitted with very modern amenities and of course the interesting design pieces from local designers. The room we had (No. 3) was great. It was a decent size and comfortable. It had the usual TV, mini fridge etc but also as a bonus had a washing machine / dryer and a ceiling heater / dryer in the bathroom. If there was one thing on the dislike list, it would be that the bed was a bit too soft for my own liking. Finally on the staff there, they were great. From check in to check out, any queries to room cleaning, the service was first rate. The reception desk is only open during the day but the staff can be contacted at anytime if needed. If you are looking for a traditional type hotel in Taipei, this might not be for you but if you are willing to try something different then I would highly recommend this hotel to you.

    Wonderful stay


    We had a wonderful stay at Play Design Hotel - a boutique hotel that 'plays' with space and moves beyond the typical concrete and wood industrial chic design. Here you can find artworks by local designers that merges Taiwanese culture and heritage, and yet also have functional value. Much thought is put into how these are displayed and integrated in the space. Also, the management changes the themes and the arrangements of each room periodically, to introduce the works of more designers over time. The room was comfortable and clean, equipped with a washing machine, dryer, and small fridge. While they do not serve breakfast or any other food, there are several eateries around the corner where you can grab a bite. Distance wise, it is also very near Ningxia Night Market where there's a lot of yummy food, and also relatively close to Zhongshan MRT. It is also a short walk away from the Dadaocheng heritage area, where you can lose yourself in the alleys and discover traces of old Taipei.

    Awesome Hotel Find in Taipei


    Play Design Hotel is an awesome hotel! Cool interiors, each piece of furniture used in the rooms and throughout the hotel appeals to the senses, yet very functional. Location is good, very accessible to Taiwan's local culture, and a lot of boutique shops and cafes are nearby. What i like best though are the people, very warm and wonderful, they go out of their way to assist us and make us comfortable. Everything made for an amazing first trip to Taiwan. I would love to stay here again when I go back.
