During the early decades of the post-WWII boom, dozens of small family-run inns dotted the winding alleys of Beitou. Solo Singer, the love project of a group of young Taiwanese artists, historians and hotel professionals, is a charming restoration (the owners would say rebirth) of one of these. There are just 13 rooms so book ahead; discounts are common. Triples and four-bed spaces are also available.
The lobby has a wonderful telephone exchange that was used in the original hotel. Just the other side of the lane is a small cafe which serves breakfast to guests and coffee and cake to the public (2pm to 10pm Tuesday to Sunday). Ask for a copy of their tourist map of the area.
Situated on Wenquan Road, Solo Singer Inn is a refurbished 50 year old building located just a 10-minute walk from Beitou MRT Station. It offers rooms with breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Located near the Xinshii Street Night Market, the inn is a 20-minute train ride from Taipei Main Station and city centre. Taoyuan International Airport is an hour’s drive away. The air-conditioned rooms feature a desk and an en suite bathroom with shower facilities and toiletries. Guests will find various books and reading materials in the common living room. Solo Singer can assist its guests with their luggage storage or travel arrangements.
Please note that the check-in operates from 15:00 to 21:00 daily. For guests who are arriving earlier or later, please contact the property directly in advance using the contact details found on the confirmation letter.
