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 the cheapest are 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.
