Taipei is a welcoming, inclusive city with a thriving LGBT scene, so you’ll never struggle to find gay-friendly hotels in Taipei. The historical pedestrian area of Ximending is one of the most popular places fo gay travellers to stay in town, due to its lively atmosphere and charming blend of tradition and modernity. Luckily for us, it also happens to be home to Red House theater and its surrounding gay nightlife.
That said, most of the hotels – focus around the gayborhood that surrounds the Red House Theater in Ximending district – are especially perfect for visitors looking to make the most of Taipei’s varied gay nightlife. Most gay hotels in Taipei are within walking distance of several gay bars and clubs, while others stand out due to their style or facilities. Despite being one of the best central locations in Taipei, there are plenty of awesome gay-friendly budget hotels in this area, from chic boutique stays to fun, laid-back hostels.
