Nestled in corner of Dunhua North Road of Songshan district, S Hotel is just minutes away from everything you need in the heart of Taipei. This work of art is designed by renowned designer Philippe Starck as a dedication from Beijing-born entrepreneur, Wang Xiaofei to his wife, Taiwanese born singer- actress Barbie Hsu. Upon entering this repurposed office building, the hotel lobby certainly sets the stage and the mood of this contemporary hotel. The whole idea of having art pieces resting on the wooden wall, cozy leather seats, colorful carpets and fireplace with the warm orange lights is to elicit a calm, inviting and homely feel for all the hotel guests.
All the minimalist chic guestrooms are designed with Philippe Starck furnishings where comfort meets style. The predominantly white interior with mustard yellow hues is complemented with elements of wood, leather and marble giving a clean, timeless and cozy feel. Mirrors, some of which are rose-tinted, and Starck lamps are a prominent feature in the guestrooms. All opulent white marble panelled bathrooms are equipped with sumptuous amenities like double sinks, power rain shower and separate toilet with washlet and toiletries by Taiwanese Brand Ginger. Guests can unwind with a cup of Nespresso listening to the music on Bang & Olufsen audio systems in the room.
In the basement of the hotel, guests can find S Restaurant & Bar helmed by Executive Chef Pierrick Maire with his French Michelin-Star restaurant pedigree that features international cuisine that uses fresh local produce embellished with his refined cooking technique and direction. Guests can choose to dine in the Philippe Starck-designed main dining area or al fresco on the terrace. After dining, guests can relax at the Whisky Bar where it boosts a range of fine whiskys and spirits.
