Hotel brand citizenM’s first foray into Asia offers affordable luxury with a brand new 26-storey hotel strategically located near Ximending and Taipei Railway Station, boasting 267 rooms and their signature two-floor living room. This unconventional space is stylishly designed with a 24-hour bar for visitors to lounge, work or dine in comfortably and touchscreen terminals for guests to check in and check out independently. Sensitive to the unique triangular nature of the site as well as a staggered setback requirement, the massing is deliberately designed to be two-tiered. The façade is kept as simple as possible, expressed through vertical structural columns, while horizontal lines are added as a reference to the low-rise historical buildings in the area. The hotel’s Cubist look is in line with citizenM’s forward-thinking philosophy of creating sleek, contemporary hotels with innovative technology for the mobile citizen.
