The hotel, which closed in September this year for reconstruction, is located in Zhongshan District, the most vibrant area in Taipei, where museums and restaurants are
concentrated. In partnership with Palace Hotel Co., Ltd., it is a luxury hotel of the highest quality with a new concept. It will also be reborn as a twin tower with residences.

Xu Yurui, Chairman of the State Guest Hotel Co., Ltd., was impressed by the design and service of the Palace Hotel Tokyo, which was reborn in 2012 after a three-and-a-half-year rebuilding process. Rather, they deeply sympathize with each other’s backgrounds. Upon concluding this partnership, Yu-Rui Xu and Daisuke Yoshihara, President and CEO of Palace Hotel Co., Ltd., both commented, “We have many things in common, and I felt destined for that chemistry.” To respect the pride of both hotel companies, we have decided to name the hotel “Ambassador Palace Hotel Taipei”, which combines the names of both companies. From 2023 onwards, many foreign-affiliated luxury hotels will enter Taipei, and construction is planned. In 2016, Palace Hotel Tokyo was the first Japanese hotel to receive five stars in the hotel category of the world-renowned travel guide Forbes Travel Guide. While many foreign-affiliated luxury hotels continue to expand into Japan, we have established our identity as an independent hotel in Japan by providing “Japan of the highest quality” while realizing world-class services. This time, the two companies, which have both created a history as a representative hotel in the area and have driven the hospitality industry, will join hands to create a new luxury hotel in Taipei.
