Stay in the Posh Transformation of an Old Hotel

Wandering through the bustling streets of Taipei, you can’t help but speed up your pace as surrounded by the excitement of the city. Let us set off from Beimen and stroll down memory lane by visiting long-standing shops in the narrow blocks, where the noises of ongoing business bring you back to the good old days. When you slow down, in a quiet alley, you may find how youthful creativity invigorates the old streets. A stunning color-painted wall, transforming an originally plain brick wall into a recreation of yesteryear, catches your eyes. An old-fashioned boarding gate to the train station, a waiting room with a wooden bench, these elements remind us of the glorious past of the rear-exit neighbourhood of Taipei Train Station. Here, Beimen WOW Poshtel welcomes you to stay in the local charm while experiencing urban novelty!

 

 

Trendy new look of an old hotel

In front of Beimen WOW Poshtel, the old-fashioned font used in the signboard pays tribute to the original hotel that had accommodated countless visitors. Now instilled with innovative ideas, the old building has been renovated to continue its legacy. As you pass through the iron container door, the staff from various countries give you a big warm greeting in different languages. The lobby at ground floor with industrial loft design looks sharp and smart. Next to the check-in counter is a red-brick wall dedicated to the world map, welcoming travellers from all over the world. And if you look around, you’d find many travel stories left by the guests at every corner.

 

Following the staff downstairs, you walk into a spacious lounge themed with modern grey tone and permeated by the fragrance of camphor wood. The recreational area gathers people playing all sorts of board games and party games like Pop Up Pirate, which may make the crowd burst into laughter from time to time. If you travel alone, the projection screen playing classic old movies may add some fun to your trip. The sofa corner is shared by Stop Kiddin’ Studio, a youtube channel that introduces Taiwan to the world through the eyes of foreigners. If you get lucky, you might bump into their video-making process and even take part in it!

 

In another corner sits the open kitchen in a simple and sleek style. As it is equipped with all the kitchenware you may need, perhaps making a home-style cuisine and exchanging with other travellers for a foreign dish would be a good choice. The old sewing machine by the stairs and the antique window frame on the wall, along with trinkets displayed in the cabinets like the pendants of the Chinese zodiac and the coasters with ornate window grates pattern, all allow you to collect a bit of old-time Taiwanese charm while leaving you an impression of lively and creative Taiwan.

 
 

Invigorating vibe makes people refuse to sleep

Carry your backpack and head upstairs to the room you’re staying tonight. In the stairwell, you’d find pleasant surprises await you. Vividly painted wall with rich and bright colors tells the stories of Beimen: well-loved Xiahai City God Temple is depicted on the fourth floor, while the historic Beimen, literally the North Gate of old Taipei, is captured on the third floor. And don’t forget to check out the must-try dishes of the night market drawn on the second floor! As your mood is boosted by these lifelike murals, why not take some photos to record the highlights of your journey?

 

You cheerfully enter the “Poshpacker” Dormitory Room, where enlarged single beds are lining up in upper and lower rows against the wall. Each bed comes with a set of curtain and a secure locker. One set of toilet and shower also sits inside the room. All the design aspects show Beimen WOW Poshtel’s caring intention to provide travellers with the most convenient and comfortable accommodation. When you turn in for the night, draw your personal curtain and throw yourself into the clean and fluffy bedding, all the fatigue from the trip will be released while your body is completely relaxed. If you are travelling with friends, there are also other types of rooms for your option, such as Double Room Ensuite and Twin Room Ensuite, all designed in the style of simplicity and would accommodate your exclusive freedom and enjoyment.

 
 

Stroll around Beimen and create new memories for the old hotel

“Good morning! Did you have a good night’s sleep?” The staff greets you with a warm smile. Isn’t it a good way to start the day? You take a bite of the freshly toasted sandwich you just made at the “Do-It-Yourself Brekkie” station while discussing the day trip of exploring Taipei City with your new found friends. This long-lived hotel contains not only the old times but also the new chapter you and other travellers just open with your laughter and expectancy.

 

Beimen, the North Gate of old Taipei City, known as Chengen Gate in the Qing Dynasty, had been concealed behind Zhongxiao Elevated Highway for more than four decades. Now the elevated highway has been demolished, the Gate finally regains its glory with the trendy new look. Here, the new encounters the old, integrating into a novel scenery. This is the place if you’d like to experience the true nature and sentiments of Taipei. Beimen WOW Poshtel welcomes you to stay one night in Beimen and savor the charms of old Taipei in its transformed look. Meet the vibrancy that mixes the modern city and the old streets, feel the vibe of culturally creative energy, and write down the colorful memories of your journey to Taipei!
