First citizenM Hotel Opens in Asia

Artyzen Hospitality Group, the company responsible for bringing innovative hotel brands to Asia, celebrates 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 to 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-key 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. The focus on art and style is prominent throughout the hotel, which includes works from famous Taiwanese photographer Chou Ching Hui’s ‘Animal Farm’ collection and Taiwan contemporary artist Hung Tung-Lu’s interactive art piece ‘Lightbox’.
