Taiwan’s best boutique-hotel chains by our stylish yet accessible standards!

If you’re a business traveler looking for a hotel to stay in Taipei, Tango Hotels will most likely come up in the search. If you’re exploring boutique hotels, the result will be the same. If you’re lodging on a budget, what you’ll see scrolling through is, what do you know? Tango.

Since 2006, Tango Hotels has become one of Taiwan’s best boutique-hotel chains by offering travelers just enough luxury to feel like a legit VIP, at a price point making it hard saying “no” to clicking that RESERVE button. For less than USD $250, expect a sumptuous suite with a TV above the jacuzzi in the bathroom. No wonder Tango is attracting not only business travelers but young couples who want to indulge in the glory of a metropolitan city without breaking the bank.

Modern, sexy yet un-intimidating, Tango does an impeccable job appealing to today’s travelers from 30 to 50-year-olds. Fine folks who have some money to spend, they don’t want to overcompensate on comfort levels and they refuse to splurge on over-the-top luxury.

With six locations in Taiwan (Xinyi 台北信義, FuHsing 臺北復興, Linsen 台北林森, ChangAn 臺北長安, NanShi 台北南西, and TaiChung 台中旗艦館) and more to come, each hotel is conveniently located near a Taipei Metro MRT station. Sales and Marketing Director Wendy Lin exclusively told us:

Tango is about the connection between people. We want our customers to come in and immediately experience comfort. What they hadn’t thought of, we’ve already done it with personalized and customized service. They can tell from the lighting to the design, that our focus stems from boutique yet we also cater to business travelers.

Designed by Gary Chou (周金諒), lighting within the hotel is contemporary minimal with room intended for personal space. Dim lighting is utilized throughout public space to create a relax and calming vibe. Inside each room, one master switch does all the magic. Easy yet high-tech.

Technology is undoubtedly and generously wired into various aspects of amenities. Every guest has free Wi-Fi access, 24-hour food in lounge and in-room washing machines are available for long-stay clients. Every room comes with a spa tub wired with Whirlpool system, European marble showers, a Japanese Toto electrical toilet that does more tricks than a magician, a plasma TV and an Espresso machine.

With increasing travelers coming from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the U.S. and Europe, Tango is etching a specific niche targeting modern jetsetters. Not necessarily those who travel on yachts, but those of us who are open to meeting cool people, appreciate well-designed interiors, pampered in personal service and run for stylish hotspots.

Don’t believe us? Just spend an hour in a Tango hot tub and you’ll be instantly convinced.
