9. Inn Cube - Minquan (from USD 12)

If you’re looking for an almost other wordly sleeping experience, Taipei may be the place for you. This is because one of the features at many budget accommodations in Taipei are sleeping capsules–small spaceship-like spaces with a bed, a pillow, and not much else. Guests crawl into the capsules and can sleep in the bluish light that makes you feel like you’re traveling the galaxy. It’s an exciting experience, but perhaps not for everyone. If you’re claustrophobic, the Inn Cube also offers regular double and triple bedrooms for travelers. This interesting hotel is affordable and within walking distance of many of the sights of the Zhongshan District of Taipei!
