The great-value Wonstar Hotel is located within walking distance of The Red House gay village and the Ximen metro station, and surrounded by shopping and dining choices.

Like many hotels here, the standard rooms are quite small and windowless.  If you are a size queen, then go for a Deluxe Room that offers more space and a view.  WiFi is free, and a Taiwanese breakfast is served daily.

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

We like the dark, masculine feel of Vendome Hotel that is located in the heart of Taipei’s shopping district and just steps from the Zhongxiao Dunhua metro station.

A great mid-range hotel if you are in town for a few days to do a bit of shopping and sightseeing. The area has lots of places to eat, including a 24-hour sushi restaurant if you fancy a little something late at night.

If you need a massage, YF Spa and Prime Spa are nearby. Gay scene-wise, The Red House takes about 20 minutes by taxi, or check out La Boca or PARK Taipei gay bars which are closer.
