Taipei

There are 78 suites in total of varying sizes, each named after the five natural elements.

If you are looking for accommodation right in the heart of Taipei but don’t want to break the bank, Just Sleep Taipei Sanchong is the hotel for you.

With a focus on convenience, affordable prices, and fantastic customer service, this budget hotel is targeted at young travellers and even business travellers. Designed to look like a modern loft, it provides an elevated stay that you may not have expected from budget hotels that cost around USD100 per night.

There are a total of 95 rooms in this hotel, with three different room types (luxury room, family room, and executive room) for you to choose from. Each room features a bed that is as luxurious as the kind found in more premium hotels to ensure that you get a good night’s sleep.

4. Waterfront Hotel Taipei (松河璞旅)

Sitting on a corner of Songhe Street near Raohe Night Market, this was originally an abandoned warehouse that took more than one year to transform into a contemporary hotel.

The architecture still retains some of the grittiness from its warehouse days, but it certainly feels a lot more polished now with cement and marbled walls, exposed pipes, brass lights, and wooden furniture. Each room has windows that face the Keelung River, Rainbow Bridge, and Xikou Rainbow Wharf, so you can wake up naturally to filtered sunlight and the relaxing view of the flowing river.

Address: No. 112號, Songhe Street, Songshan District, Taipei City, Taiwan 10567

5. Just Sleep Ximending (捷絲旅西門館)

Just Sleep Ximending is made for young travellers looking to shop and eat their way through Taipei. Designed to look like an apartment that blends into the neighbourhood, it incorporates Ximending’s famous characteristics such as graffiti and neon lights into its interior design.

The rooms are furnished with practical and simple furniture for convenience, including tables with a sofa adjourned so that you can sit around and play games, chit chat, or even munch on snacks together with your family and friends.

Address: 100, Taiwan, Taipei City, Zhongzheng District, 中華路一段41號5樓

Yilan

6. HOTEL PIN Jiaoxi (品文旅)

This onsen hotel in Yilan will definitely appeal to families or friends travelling together.

All the hotel rooms boast minimalism in the interior design and furnishings to appeal to the younger crowd – they actually resemble greenhouses so that you feel like you’re at one with nature.

If you opt for the family-friendly suite, your kids will have a whale of a time climbing into the attached attic and enjoy the private ‘camping’ experience!

Address: No. 21巷2號, Jiankang 2nd Street, Jiaoxi Township, Yilan County, Taiwan 26241

Taichung

7. HOSHINOYA Guguan (虹夕諾雅 谷關)

Dubbed the masterpiece of Taiwan’s hotels in 2019, this is HOSHINOYA’s first luxurious onsen resort outside of Japan, and it is every bit as gorgeous as it sounds.

The 50 rooms are split into two different buildings, with the rooms in each building offering a different kind of view (mountain or backyard river). Each one is made with Japanese interior design elements in mind, the best being the French windows that extend from the ceiling to the floor.

You can sit right in front of the windows and watch the scenery change with the passing of time – it’s been said to look especially stunning during the autumn season, where all you see is a sea of red and golden foliage!

Address: 温泉巷, No. 16号, Section 1, Dongguan Road, Heping District, Taichung City, Taiwan 424

Aside from the amazing location, Lakeshore Hotel Tainan is also currently the biggest hotel in Tainan, with 536 (!) beautifully-furnished rooms that provide a clean and comfortable experience for a memorable trip in this laid-back city.
