Exterior of the hotel


For many of us, visiting Taipei is like going back to our second home where we are accepted for who we are. With strong Chinese and Japanese cultures mixed with a tinge of Western influence, Taiwan is a cosmopolitan city that remains a top destination for many gays around the world.


To experience true Taiwanese hospitality, Element decided to check out this “Made in Taiwan” Home Hotel Da’An that collaborates with local specialty and design brands. This hotel is situated in Taipei’s East District (also known as Dong-qu) where many restaurants, cafes, bars, and small boutiques are located.





The design of Home Hotel Da’An is inspired by Taiwan’s local indigenous culture with wood, marble and earth tones being widely used in its décor. From its big wooden hotel entrance door, wooden furniture, quartz and rock flooring, as well as potted plants in the lobby, the décor transports guests into a zen garden. The reception is located on the fifth floor, where guests will be greeted by a natural cave décor with shimmering stars in the ceiling once they step out of the elevator.

All guestrooms are designed to make guests feel like they are at home, with specially designed furniture in the rooms that emulates the indigenous culture and spirit. All guestrooms are equipped with Taiwanese products such as Chimei Television and multimedia devices, 60-year brand teh tai mattresses, tea extract based cha tzu tang toiletries, TOTO toilet and more. There are also various essential oils available for guests to choose from to create an even more relaxing atmosphere.
