Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko has opened its new property, Hotel Gracery Taipei, in the capital city of Taiwan.

The 248-room hotel is the second property operated by the company outside Japan after Hotel Gracery Seoul.

Located conveniently in the center of Taipei, a one-minute walk from MRT’s Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station, Hotel Gracery Taipei offers spacious guest rooms, minimum 25m²/269ft², with room rates that are moderate.

All rooms of the hotel feature Japanese-style bathrooms. One distinctive feature presented at the hotel is its ‘concept rooms’.

Hotel Gracery Taipei general manager Masato Okudate said: “Although international travelling is still restricted due to the pandemic, we wanted to be ready to welcome back travellers and also introduce our Hotel Gracery brand in Taiwanese market.

“Taiwan has been a popular destination especially among Japanese, but we see a bigger potential that appeals to international market.”

Hotel Gracery Taipei partners with several Japanese/Taiwanese brands and showcases Tokyu Hands Concept Rooms, Katsuya Concept Room and Niseko Concept Room. It plans to add more in the future.

The concept rooms feature typical Japanese items such as vending machines and train-themed goods and camping goods.

Katsuya Concept Room replicates Japanese/Taiwanese chain restaurant Katsuya and allows guests to order a delivery using its menu.

Niseko Concept Room features Niseko-themed design with stargazing ceiling.

Established in 1955, Fujita Kanko operates wedding and banquet facilities, high-end resorts, leisure facilities and related services.

It also has 70 properties/facilities, including its flagship, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, and 36 mid-priced hotels in the Hotel Gracery, Washington Hotels and Hotel Tavinos groups.
