In Taipei, the new and old mesh together in unpredictable and often charming ways. There's nowhere where this is more obvious than in its housing. Neighbourhoods blend into shopping districts and night markets, and apartments can be found atop restaurants, tailors, and florists. Nearly all of Taipei's residents live in apartments, and oftentimes the buildings are a little weathered. Inside, however, homeowners have done their best to create a cosy and warm atmosphere. Airbnb hosts have taken it up a notch further.

If you're looking for an Airbnb to stay at in Taipei, look no further; here are 15 Airbnbs in Taipei that range from starkly minimalist to cosily overdecorated. Located in different parts of the city, and full of quirky features, these rooms are places that you'll be glad to call home.

1. Wilson’s Aurora Loft

98 USD / night for 1* | 3 beds | 6 guests

*11 USD for each additional guest after 4 guests

We are very satisfied with the cleanliness, location and amenities of the apartment. Will definitely be back if we are going to Taiwan again! Chloe (Guest Review)

This is a cozy, comfortable loft that is located next to Ximen MRT. To maximize space, a loft bed dominates the upper half of the room. It’s a fun and quirky decision that really adds another dimension to the room.

The loft is lovely, with lots of thoughtful little touches like cutesy bedsheets and nice decorations. All the small touches help to create the loft’s warm personality.

This loft has a prime location nearby Ximending, one of the most popular shopping districts. However, it’s far away from the busy streets of Ximending that the noise won’t bother you. It’s within walking distance from the Ximen MRT Station. Ximen is also an interchange, so getting around is convenient.

Free WiFi is provided, along with amenities such as a fridge, hair dryer and free drinking water. Wilson is an attentive and helpful host, who is always quick to respond if you need any help.

2. Yingyu’s Adorable Apartment

57 USD / night for 2 guests | 1 bed | 2 guests

It would be hard to find a better location in Ximen or possibly all of Taipei. The place is very centrally located to make it easy to explore the sights. Kyle (Guest Review)

Yingyu’s apartment is an adorable, minimalist room near to Ximen MRT. It’s just a three-minute walk from the MRT, making getting around really convenient. Besides that, the apartment is located right in Shinjuku Plaza, so you’ll be right above some of the most popular and busy streets in the Ximending area.

The exterior of the apartment might be a hive of activity, but the inside has a peaceful and cosy vibe. The room is white-washed and tidy, with cute little decorations and fake plants punctuating the white walls. The apartment is a little small, but a row of windows lets in plenty of light. A row of high seats by the window makes it a perfect place for chilling out and people watching.

The host is willing to let you check in early if possible, or you can put your luggage there before check-in time. Some people have found the room a little small, but still enjoyed their stay.

67 USD / night for 2 guests | 1 bed | 2 guests

*15USD cleaning fee

This modern and contemporary loft has a living room, an upper level, and a kitchen and laundry area. The interior is beautifully decorated; the furniture is tastefully chosen and the entire apartment feels well put together. Do note that the loft is a popular choice, so the furniture does have some wear and tear.

There is a lot more space in this loft as compared to the more centrally located Airbnbs. However, that doesn’t mean that you compromise on accessibility. This loft is located only 6 minutes away from Houshanpi MRT Station. Houshanpi is in a quieter area of Taipei, so this is perfect if you’re looking for a relaxing, laid-back holiday.

Wi-Fi is available, along with amenities such as a hair dryer, refrigerator, and bath gels. Best of all, this loft also comes with a hot tub so you can soak and relax after a long day.

The host can also arrange an airport shuttle for you for a fee, so you won’t have to worry about making it to the airport.

This has got to be one of the coolest Airbnbs in the city. It’s a refurbished industrial loft, and every bit of it screams retro. The loft has been redone with brick accents, wood panelling and vintage decorations that all add to the theme.

As the name might suggest, this is a beautifully decorated apartment that follows a garden theme. The room is fun and quirky, with little lanterns and fake plants adding a homey touch. Following the garden theme, the main colour in the room is green, creating a relaxing atmosphere.

The apartment is just 30 seconds away from Taipei Main Station, which is in the centre of Taipei. It’s right next to the famous shopping mall Shin Kong Mitsubishi and is ten minutes away from the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. The room also has amenities such as Wi-Fi and shower gels.

Location was perfect, in the center of many shops and restaurants. Also close to the MRT and not far from Taipei 101. Fred (Guest Review)

This stylish apartment is a designer home with an all-white interior and thoughtful furnishings. The huge windows let in lots of natural light, which helps the small space feel roomier. The room is minimal and clean, creating a cosy environment.

At the same time though, the size of the room makes it intimate and perfect for couples. It has an open concept bathroom and a big tub, which is a rarity in Taiwan. After a long day of exploring, you can unwind in the tub. The room also has a little balcony for you to enjoy the view.

Located in the heart of Dong Qu, this apartment places you near to many malls, trendy cafes, and fashion outlets. It’s located a few minutes from Zhongxiao Dunhua MRT Station.

Transport from the airport can be arranged for a fee.

Do note that some guests have said that there can be a bit of a smell because of the bathroom’s open concept. However, that problem can be solved by opening the window to air it out in the day.

8. The Moustache House

60 USD / night for 2 guests* | 2 beds | 4 guests

*17 USD for each additional guest after 2 guests

*19 USD cleaning fee

What is it with Taipei’s Airbnbs and their cute / weird names? The Moustache House is a cute and funky loft, just like its name suggests. The place is small but cosy, with a style that mimics exposed rafters. The loft is decked out in vibrant blues and yellows that create a fun and welcoming atmosphere.

It’s very close to Ximen MRT Station, and the Ximending shopping area, making it easy to get around. One bonus of this Airbnb is that you'll be given a pocket Wi-Fi, so you won’t have to go Wi-Fi hunting around the city. It also has a washing machine and dryer, so it’s ideal for longer stays. Reviewers have said that the hosts are helpful and informative, and they’ll also pass you some maps to help you navigate your way round the city.

The second bed is a sofa bed. The loft is a bit small, so it’s more ideal for 2 people rather than 4, unless you don’t mind a bit of a squeeze.

Very cozy apartment, just the right size for couples. Shi Hui (Guest Review)

This elegantly designed loft feels more like a hotel. It has wood accents, glass panels and white tiles. The loft really maximises space and all the elements, such as the bathroom or the cupboard, fit seamlessly into the overall design.

*15 USD cleaning fee

I cannot stress how conveniently located his apartment, especially since the MRT station is literally a stone throw away.Walter (Guest Review)

This is an intimate apartment with a beautiful canopy bed. If you’re looking for something with a little extra fanciness, this is a good choice. There’s nothing that feels quite as fancy as a canopy bed.

The apartment is minimal and modern, with a yellow wall that adds a pop of colour to the place. The furnishings are minimal, but you won’t find yourself wanting. There’s a cute little dining table so you won’t have to eat on the floor, and a fully-furnished kitchen if you want to cook. It also has a washer, but no dryer.

If you’re the kind who desperately needs personal space, even while on vacation, then Taipei’s apartments might leave you feeling a bit suffocated. Thankfully, this bright and spacious studio has a lot more room compared to other places in Taipei. It has a kitchen area, a living room, and two sleeping spaces.

91 USD / night for 2 guests | 1 bed | 2 guests

Great record player, great art, and great location! https://www.airbnb.com.sg/rooms/4473521?guests=2&s=FQO6A0nj

No, this isn’t Washington. You’re still in Taipei. This house, however, is the true meaning of minimalist. It has white walls, a white bed, white drapes, and a white floor. You can probably guess why it got its name. Thankfully, the whiteness is punctuated by black and white decorations, and a simple wooden table for dining. Aside from that, the apartment is bare, but spacious.

The apartment has large windows that let in a lot of natural light. Even the amenities in the apartment are white. The fridge, table, fan, sink, and cupboards are all white. Besides the white amenities, there’s also Wi-Fi, a hair dryer, and all the things you’ll need for a comfortable stay. The host also provides a record player, so you can play some tunes and chill out on the small balcony.

This Airbnb property is a short six-minute walk from Ximen MRT, and it’s near to the Ximending shopping area.

Source: Airbnb

34 USD / night for 1 guest* | 1 bed | 2 guests

*13 USD for each additional guest

So far, all the Airbnb properties in this article have been private apartments.

Your room is private, but you’ll share common spaces such as the bathroom, living room, and basement with other guests and the host.

The room is spacious, with a sofa and table. The sofa can also double up as a sofa bed. The rest of the house is spacious and well-furnished, with plenty of spaces for guests to eat and chat. There’s also a multi-media room in the basement. Free coffee, tea, and toast are available in the mornings.

You can walk to attractions such as the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall or the Taiwan Botanical Gardens. You can also cycle there – the hosts provide up to three bikes for guests to use. Otherwise, you can head to Chiang Kai-Shek MRT Station and access the rest of Taipei from there.

*8 USD cleaning fee

Joleen’s apartment is a warm and cheerful place with all the basic necessities for a comfortable stay. It’s a single room, but it’s spacious and will comfortably fit four people. The room is simply furnished, but all your basic amenities, such as cups, cutlery and a hair dryer are provided. The bathroom is a bit small, but not to the point where it’s claustrophobic.

The apartment is within walking distance from Zhongxiao Dunhua MRT Station. It’s surrounded by many convenience stores, restaurants, and fashion outlets. Lots of street food can also be found in the area, especially in the mornings and at night. The street where the Airbnb property is located is quiet but safe.

15. The Twilight Room

Source: Airbnb

39 USD / night for 2 guests* | 1 bed | 2 guests

*10 USD cleaning fee

The space itself could not have been more conveniently located. Easy walk to several subway lines, though there is more than enough to see in the surrounding area.Sara (Guest Review)

No, there aren’t any vampires here. The Twilight Room was so named because of the dark blues and greens the room is painted in. It’s a private room in a shared apartment, so you’ll share common spaces like the living room, kitchen, and bathroom with the hosts and other guests.

Despite its name, the Twilight Room still gets plenty of light thanks to large windows. It has a queen-sized bed, so it’s best suited for two people.

The apartment is in a prime location. It’s just a five-minute walk from the Taipei 101 MRT Station and Xinyi Anhe Station, so you’re right in the middle of some of the best shopping areas in the city. Nearby, there are plenty of convenience stores, a supermarket, and the Tonghua Night Market.
