Situated in the busiest Dong Qu district of Taipei, this quirky boutique hotel was designed to focus wandering eyes on its facade.  Hotel Pois Pois definitely stands out with its daytime quietness to night time neon light brilliance that conveys a sense of Dong Qu character – hustle and bustle.  The hotel reception is located on the top floor where guests will experience a “fantasy” elevator ride with the interior designed by renowned German artist Peter Zimmermann.

Upon arriving on its top floor, guests will be welcomed by the hospitable staff along with the charming skyline of downtown Taipei.  Step out into the sky deck and take a “ride” on its Spun Chair, a red gyro chair created by Heatherwick Studio.  When the neon lights lit up in the night, it offers a state of enchantment in this concrete jungle.
