An Historical Relic Restored Reversing the Gates of Taipei
Here where the provincial governor and
the red-hatted merchants of Yongleding passed
the baroque architecture of
Jingding, Biaoding and Rongding flourished
As time passes silently, the North Gate gazes at the moonlight
Overlooking travellers passing by
A hundred-year-old city center sitting in dim light in the present age
U-rban inn Taipei lights up this area with the glow of memory
The journey’s meaning and the traces of landmarks are condensed
at this starting point exploring historical and modern connections
Waiting to house wandering travellers
U-rban inn Taipei, a new hotel brand situated near the transport hub of Taipei Main Station and Bo’ai Road, with its dozens of photographic equipment shops, and close to two Grade III listed historic buildings, North Gate and the General Post Office. The refined Japanese architecture stands elegantly at the entrance of Bo’ai Road, a new hotel for travellers and the best starting point for exploring historical relics and modern tourist attractions.
U-rban inn Taipei has 13 simple, self-contained rooms furnished in an efficient style, offering guests a refreshing and cozy space to recharge. A five minute walk to the exit/entrance to Beimen MRT station, and a 10 minute walk to Taipei Main Station.
U-rban inn Taipei is adjacent to major commercial districts and is a great place to see local customs and practices. Its ideal location leads you to historic buildings; you can go shopping in nearby department stores, buy local groceries and dry foods at Dihua Street, watch shows at the Guling Street Avant-Grade Theater or buy yourself a late-night movie ticket in Ximending to experience the full breadth of urban Taipei.
The whole hotel building is surrounded by distinctive culture both historical and contemporary. The historical sites of Beimen, Futai Street Mansion, and the Red House are located nearby. The name of each room are derived from the Japanese colonial era. Like a miniature of the hundred-year-old Taipei city, witness the renovation of an old residence and welcome in a new district of memories.
