Kimpton Da An Hotel is now opened in Taipei. I had a chance to stay right after their opening, lucky me 🙂 The location is very convenient, only steps away from Zhongxiao Fuxing MRT station. The room design of Kimpton Da An stands still between tradition and modernity, super friendly and nice service makes me want to stay here again next time.
金普頓據點在加州，在1981年由William (Bill) Kimpton創立，是美國最大型的精品酒店連鎖，及後在多倫多、阿姆斯特丹開設酒店。他們最近要在亞洲大展拳腳，台北是他們在亞洲的第一間，及後會在峇里、上海、三亞，還有巴黎、洛杉磯等地開新酒店。
The Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants was established in California in 1981 by William (Bill) Kimpton, the largest boutique hotel chain in the United States, and later they opened in Toronto and Amsterdam. They are going to start their business in Asia recently. Taipei is their first Kimpton in Asia, and will open new hotels in Bali, Shanghai, Sanya, Paris and Los Angeles.
The location is in the quiet lane, which is in sharp contrast with the crowded Zhongxiao East Road outside . The design of the lobby is a stylish and comfortable route, which is very different from the general five-star hotel style. I sat at aside and waited for the check-in to be completed. There is a magazine with Mr. Kimpton on the table. The staff will ask if you want to drink warm water, sparkling water or fruit water. Check-in process is very quick.
Oh right! Kimpton is a Pet Friendly Hotel, you can bring your Furry kid to come. No additional charge for pets.
At their bar you can start your day with the famous Morning Kickstarter or chill out during the Social Wine Hour.
Found the traditional window frame decoration in Taiwan at the elevator, it is very intimate and should be very new to foreign friends.
The hotel has a total of 129 rooms with a stylish design of Taiwanese style. Once inside is the bathroom, then the rest section. The bathroom is made of white tiles, this is the tile used in traditional Taiwanese homes, which is separated from the dark green room.
The bathroom is divided into two sides, one is the toilet and the shower, and the other is the wash basin for the area where the toiletries are placed. Atelier Bloem’s toiletries are very well washed and very fragrant. Bathrobe is very soft and comfortable, so regret not buying one home. There are also a lot of travel amenities for the guests. Just call the room service and they will send them up. I didn’t bring my hair band and they have it too!
Bolon flooring for animals and cleaner environment inside the room. I feel cozy to walk with my bared feet (but actually their slippers are very comfy too!) I love the bed here! Plush Mattress with 400 Thread Count Luxurious Bed Linens, I didn’t want to wake up every morning.
50′ Led TV, left hand side is minibar, tea bags and coffee are all well equipped. It has a coffee machine inside the room, the container of the capsules is a Taiwanese traditional rice cooker! Everyday fresh Taiwanese fruits will be sent to your room, it has wax apple, pipa fruit, date and Taiwanese grapes.
In-Room Yoga Mats and In-Room Local Inspired Massage Tool, especially for the travellers.
It is here you feel a sense of belonging and the true Taiwanese hospitality. Highly recommended to you all.
