Gay Friendly Hotels in Taipei

Sign up to find out some of the best places to eat, drink and travel in Taipei for 2017.


In a tolerant world, most hotels are gay friendly, but this terms doesn’t just apply to hotels that embrace gay couples. It is often used to refer to hotels that are ideally located next to gay restaurants and attractions, hotels that attract large numbers of the gay community and allow them to feel at home.

In this article we’ll look at the Taipei hotels that have been listed as gay friendly by members of the LGBT community. This is not just our opinion and all of the hotels here have been recommended by LGBT travel communities and by groups of gay tourists who have visited Taipei in the last few years.

The Inn House Hotel

The main focus with this hotel, at least as far as the LGBT community is concerned, is the location. The Inn House Hotel can be found in the Ximending area, which is a big shopping region in Taipei. This is where you will find all of the best shops, the best restaurants and bars and the best festivals and festivities. This isn’t a gay exclusive area, Ximending is popular with all tourists in Taipei, as there is a lot to see and do here.

As you can see, there is no pool or fitness center at the Inn House Hotel, but location is key at this 4-star establishment. Comfort is already high on the agenda, and you will find all of the basic amenities in the hotel’s 60 rooms. These include flat-screen televisions which come equipped with cable channels, an iPod/iPhone dock, and a private bathroom which has a hairdryer and a stack of free luxury toiletries.

If you want the biggest and the best at the Inn House Hotel, then book yourself and your partner into one of their Villas. These were made for couples looking for a romantic getaway. These rooms are the biggest available, but they also have VIP Suites, which come in at around 500 square feet and are also very reasonably priced.

Sherwood Taipei

The Sherwood Taipei is located in the Songshan District, a stone’s throw from the Songshan Airport. This is not the international airport, but if you live in a nearby country or city and are flying into Taipei then this will probably be the airport that brings you here.

  • Airport Shuttle? Yes
  • Free WiFi? Yes

The Sherwood Taipei is not as ideally located as the Inn House Hotel, as there is no direct access to Ximending, but if you want the best 5-star luxury to truly pamper yourself, than there are few better options in the city of Taipei. There are close to 350 rooms here, including Executive rooms that come with a balcony and a great view of the city, and a Junior Suite, which also has a fantastic view of the city and is close to 700 square feet in size.

The Sherwood Taipei is as luxurious as you can get in Taipei, with a well equipped fitness center, a spacious sauna, a wellness center with a host of treatments and services, and an indoor pool that is open throughout the year. There is also choice of restaurants in the Sherwood Taipei, with both buffet and al la carte options.

The Sherwood Taipei is not completely out of the way either, and if you hop in a taxi then you’ll be just 15 minutes away from the iconic Taipei 101, which attracts hordes of tourists every year.

A Simple Place

Going back to Ximending, A Simple Place is a 3-star hotel that is perfectly located in this busy shopping area. This is a very affordable hotel and one that attracts a number of gay tourists.

  • Airport Shuttle? Yes
  • Free WiFi? Yes
  • Pool? No
  • Fitness Center? No

As you can see, there are few luxuries in this hotel, but all of the basics are there. This is a small hotel and one that only has 9 rooms, but all of these have flat-screen televisions, private bathrooms, desks, minibars and a range of free toiletries. There are only three room types, but these include rooms with double beds and twin beds, along with a rooms that allows for triple occupancy. All rooms are also air conditioned and they all come with free Wi-Fi. If you book into the Superior Double, then you will also be able to enjoy a great view of the city.

If you want to get away from this exciting and fashionable area, then you should head for the nearby Taipei Main Station, which will take you anywhere you want to go in the city.
