Why this hotel: Near the gay scene. Convenient location. Stylish.

Most Booked Award 2014
Top 25

Hip designer hotel in the heart of Ximen gay district.  The Inhouse offers 60 spacious guest rooms (from 21 m² to 50 m²), all fitted with cable flat screen TV, iPod/iPhone docking station, minibar, luxury en suite bathroom with L’Occitane toiletries.

Its interior design is reminiscent of the famous Taiwanese Red House Theatre from the old days with vibrant colours and luminescent lighting.  There is an onsite café and restaurant that serves Western and Chinese dishes.

Located a 5-minute walk from Ximen MRT station, with surrounding night markets just outside the hotel door.  Excellent value for money and a good location for both G5 parties and The Red House. Very popular choice on Travel Gay Asia.

7.4 Good based on 992 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Walk to The Red House. Great value & location.

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 which is just one street away.

Why this hotel: 1 min to gay scene & MRT. Excellent value. Late breakfast.

Quirky, one of a kind artwork awaits you in the lobby, but the rooms and suites offer a tranquil and relaxing environment away from the busy city.

There is a wide choice of accommodation to suit most budgets, from “cosy” rooms through to 37 m² suites.  All rooms are air-conditioned, have a comfortable bed, 40″ LCD, iPhone dock, WiFi, a minibar and decent rainfall shower heads.

Check our rates for regular special offers and upgrade specials.  The hotel has a fitness room and self-service laundry and, helpfully for late-risers, breakfast is served until 11am.

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

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

The name of the hotel is a reference to its styling which is loosely themed on the interior of an airplane (including airline-style seats in the guest rooms).  Quirky styling aside, this hotel offers reasonably spacious, modern and comfortable rooms.

Great choice if you are in town to party the night away at Luxy (the hotel is on the 12th floor the same building) and halfway between the Ximen gay district and JumP gay dance club.

We like the dark masculine feel of this three star hotel that is located in the heart of Taipei’s shopping district and just steps from the MRT.

There are lots of places to eat close by (including a 24-hour sushi restaurant if you fancy a little something in the middle of the night).
