Tainan has so many great places to stay, and often times I feel like the sense of design in the old city is actually more stylized than in Taipei. There’s a lot of new work being done on old buildings, mixing together the classic Taiwan industrial look with a very modern design. One such place was actually a BnB we stayed in called Design Inn.

Created by Lee, a very patient dreamer who’s also passionate about good design, Design Inn has little design details throughout, such as little study nooks in the stair well, and nicknacks all around.

It also has an incredible variety of rooms available:

Hostel

Whether your in a group, family or just traveling by yourself, Design Inn has a hostel on the basement level that fits 4 people to a room. This isn’t just any bargain hostel though. The whole area has been very well thought out, provided lockers for every guest, as well as a power outlet next to each bed. Right outside of the rooms is also a computer area for those who need internet access and are traveling light.

BnB

If you have graduated from sharing a room with strangers to requiring your own private space, and have the money to spare, then Design Inn has you covered. The full size rooms are beautiful, and come in a variety of designs, the first floor getting its inspiration from England, while the second floor goes for more of a retro feel, and the third floor takes a more IKEA-like approach. Complete with everything you need, and great environment too match, these rooms are a very nice stay.

Lofts

Even better than the standard BnB rooms are the top floor lofts. Giving you tons of space to work in, the beds have been elevated, which makes for a very restful slumber, unless you’re afraid of heights I suppose. The design is once again beautiful, and also comes in a number of different styles to choose from.

Price

As beautiful as these rooms are, there is a catch. The prices change regularly from NT$2000~3000, so you may never know what to expect when booking. However, if you book far enough in advance, you have a much better chance of getting a good deal. Also, the staff can speak English, so you can always call them up to find out all the information for the time.

Other Services

As mentioned, the BnB provides computer to use if you didn’t bring yours along.

The BnB also provides bicycles for rent, which is a huge advantage in Tainan where transportation is harder to find and the city is quite spread out.

Lee himself is also a great guy, and if you have a chance you can sit down and have a good chat with him. He can tell you places to visit, things to eat or just have a conversation in general.

If you’re heading down to Tainan, definitely get in touch with Design Inn to see if it’s available and what the rates are. If you know of any other good places to stay in Tainan, I’d love to hear about them! Let me know in the comments below.

I came to Taiwan on a whim for an exchange program in university and I've pretty much been here ever since. I pretty much fell in love with TW at first sight and I take every chance I get to go out and explore. With a knack for creating things, a decent camera and some editing skills, I created TT to share Taiwan with others and connect people looking to do cool things. I'm always down to try something new and exciting, especially if it involves going fast, so send me a shout out and let's explore together.
