Taipei is a welcoming, inclusive city with a thriving LGBT scene, so you’ll never struggle to find gay-friendly hotels in Taipei. That said, these hotels – mostly focused 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.
