Ximending Hotels

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


Ximending is a neighborhood in Taipei, located within the Wanhua Distict of the city. This is a shopping area, with many great places to spend your holiday fund, and it is popular with both tourists and locals. Ximending is a great place to get a feel for the real Taipei, because although it does cater for tourists, it has a very natural and traditional feel to it.

Littered with banners, billboards and advertisements, all of which are in Chinese, and with hordes of people passing through it every day, it is easy to see why some people refer to Ximending as the Times Square of Taipei. As with Times Square, this is a great attraction during the night, when the sun dips over the horizon and the neon lights shine to full effect. It’s not just about shopping in Ximending, as there are plenty of other things to keep you busy. These include a theatre and a temple.

If you want to be one of the 3 million people that pass through Ximending every month, then you should consider booking into a hotel in the area. You can book yourself into accommodation within the Wanhua Distirct, or you can book somewhere that is in Ximending itself. We have picked out both options for you below, with two highly rated hotels that can provide the perfect base for your holiday to Ximending and to Taipei on the whole.
