The DPS is a four-story building of a traditional elongated ‘street house’ design – yet elevated with a spacious sky well in the center. The design of this building comprises several Western historical architectural styles infused with some eclectic elements, including the local Minnan and Japanese style.
In addition, the original architect of the DPS first defined its interior with respect to functionality by dividing it into two major areas through the central stairs and the atrium, and then subdivided them into a number of spaces for specific purposes.
The DPS is located in the center of Stad Provintia – today’s Tainan inner-city area – the earlest developed town in Taiwan. Its city plan can be traced back to 1625 when the VOC relocated their Dutch personnel and factory, and Han Chinese residents at Baxemboy to Provintia.
“De Provintia Straat,” being the town boulevard, ran in a east-westerly direction from the Big Well by the Saccam Pier in the west to the Beiji Temple on the Eagles Tableland in the east.
“De Provintia Straat” (Minquan Rd.) was approximately 340 meters long and 50 feet wide – a six-lane road fitting for horse carriages to use. It has been designated by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications as Taiwan’s earliest official avenue.
DPS offers a number of selections for accommodation – ranging from single bed to deluxe suite – most ideal for backpackers or large gatherings. There are three types of rooms and two gender-separate backpacker spaces for you to choose from. Our rooms are both spacious and comfortable, and we also offer extra beds for your room should you require such services.
Moreover, backpackers can gain access to two gender-separate lounge areas infused with an ambience of local tranquility for a truly relaxing, rewarding, and safe Tainan experience!
