A relatively new hotel, located just a few blocks from the gay village at The Red House.  Like many hotels at this price range, the standard rooms are quite small and windowless.

If you are a size queen, then spend a little more and go for a deluxe room that offers more space and an outside view.

The hotel is just a short walk to Taipei main railway station and MRT, making it easy to get around the city.  WiFi is free, and a Taiwanese breakfast is served between 7:30 and 11am.

If this hotel is fully booked, then consider the Wonstar II Hotel which is just one street away.

Why this hotel: Unique concept. Near the gay village & MRT station.

Great-value option and well-located for the gay scene in Ximen.  This concept hotel is just moments away from the MRT station.  There is also a huge choice of places to eat nearby.
