“I got one quiet Taipei night which belongs to myshelf here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Every room has its own style, simple and clean. I like the ramdom breakfast they provided from the neiborhood, it surprised m e and tasted good. The only problem is that it's not so easy to be found, but I think that's why makes it so quiet, which is the point that I like the most. I strongly recommend it.^^

It is just like a warm home with great hospitality and a wonderful fusion of the modernity and the past.
Actually we were going to find a hotel with hot spring, but accidentally came to this boutique hotel. They story of this hotel is very enchanting. The small alley resembles Hudong in Beijing. You will never have a chance to savor this beautiful lifestyle from the past of Taipei if you are not staying in Solo Singer.
The location is kind of hard to find and a little bit far from the city center, but I think it is definitely worth it if you are looking for an unique experience of the "real" Taipei.

Room Tip: the room at the 3rd floor is awesome and very closed to the public balcony

I wasn't sure where I was headed when I boarded my taxi. In fact, the taxi driver himself seemed rather concerned and perplexed that he couldn't find the place. It wasn't until I wandered down the small alley that lead to the hotel that I felt like I had entered a tranquil oasis. Here the past comes alive as the hotel staff have taken care of every detail to preserve the history of the space and meld it with their concept of giving it life as an artistic space. Each room is a masterpiece and each moment spent there is to be cherished. This is not your average bed and breakfast. You will likely never forget your stay there. Thanks to the incredible staff who were kind and extremely helpful.

Solo Singer Inn is well located in a non-touristy area that has lots of restaurants and local eateries. It's only a five-minute walk from the metro which will get you anywhere around Taipei.

The staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful. They always had a smile and were eager to make our stay memorable. They are exceptional and go out of their way to make you feel like friends. They don't even wait for you to ask questions. They ask you what you need, where you'd like to go. When it was time to set out, they would help you plan your day wisely and give you directions on how to use the metro to find the way. When you returned after a long day of sightseeing, they also recommended places to eat within a few blocks of the hotel for dinner.

Our room was a bit small, but bright and charming with a nice comfortable bed, and a nice bathroom. There were always little snacks and coffee in the common area, it makes you feel appreciated. They have a great Taiwanese breakfast every morning - would highly recommend Solo Singer Inn.

I really had a great stay in Solo Singer. I stayed their for four days. Beitou is a very nice part of Taipei and close to Tamsui and Shilin night market. The hotel has a great atmosphere and the staff is very friendly.

I found it a little expensive for what it is and where it is located, too far from the metro and action in central Taipei and a little difficult to find. Staff were ok but not overly helpful. Not awful but not a great experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
To lose one’s way is to begin a journey.To empty one’s mind is for containing more blessing. It is a renaissance project of a small old Taiwanese hotel. It is a hotel in the hot spring area without hot spring, but embedded in the history and traditional lifestyle of an old Taiwanese neighborhood. There won’t be any televisions to disturb your time when pausing to enjoy the quietness and inspiration away from the bustling life. Pick up a book if you want and find your favorite corner for reading. The speed of reading is what we believe to be the best speed for experiencing the traditional Taiwanese lifestyle. Solo Singer Inn is in a small hidden alley too narrow for cars to enter and is off Beitou Wenquan Road (Hot Springs Road) where a group of passionate travellers and artists started the renaissance project of a three-story inn over 60 years old. This new beginning introduces the spirit of Taiwan’s local alley culture to international travellers. Solo Singer Inn has preserved the characteristics of Taiwan’s traditional inns. All of the guest rooms are different in layout. The team has tried as far as possible to preserve their original characteristics; the sloping walls, the narrow staircases and corridors. Every inch is a precious memory of Taiwan’s old inns, standing witness to the rise and fall of Taiwan’s indigenous culture and half a century of Beitou’s history. ... more   less
