Artyzen Hospitality Group has welcomed the opening of the inaugural citizenM hotel in Asia.
Located in Taiwan’s cosmopolitan capital directly opposite the city’s historical site, North Gate, citizenM Taipei North Gate is within short walking distance of both Taipei Main Station and the Airport Express terminal, which offers an efficient 35-minute direct train to Taoyuan International Airport.
Near to the popular shopping and tourist area of Ximending, the 267-room property boasts stunning Tamsui River views, contemporary design, efficient service and cutting-edge technology – all at a smart price.
A significant milestone for the young and innovative Dutch hotel brand, the debut Asian property in Taipei is the eleventh citizenM hotel to open worldwide since its 2008 launch.
A concept brought to life by award-winning Dutch designers, Concrete, citizenM Taipei North Gate breaks the rules of traditional hospitality, with just one room category ingeniously designed around sleeping and lounging on the comfy, XL size bed.
An intuitive and handy in-room tablet moodpad controls everything from the television and themed wake up alarms, to room temperature, blinds, and ambient lighting - leaving guests in charge to tailor their experience.
All citizenM properties celebrate local culture - at citizenM Taipei North Gate, the exterior entrance wall presents a vibrant anime and pop culture art piece by Taipei’s up and coming local graffiti talent, ANO.
Other brand hallmarks featured in citizenM Taipei North Gate include a dynamic dining and cocktail space, canteenM, available 24-hours a day for hotel guests.
Located on the first floor with outstanding city views through a large glazed façade, the bar is the lively heart of the hotel with beer on tap and Champagne and cocktails to order.
The large open kitchen with kitchen island, high and low seating and tables, is located behind, serving fresh fare throughout the day in a laidback dining environment.
Allan Yip, vice president of marketing, distribution and brands at Artyzen Hospitality Group, said: “Taipei is a very exciting city for us to launch the first citizenM in Asia.
“North Gate is a central and vibrant location full of good food, retail and culture, a perfect playground for the modern traveller and citizen of the world.
“We look forward to further regional expansion in 2018 - our next citizenM hotels will open in key gateway cities including Shanghai and Kuala Lumpur in summer next year.”
