Theme Hotels in Taipei
Taipei is already famous for their theme restaurants, cafes like Hello Kitty Sweets and Deja Vu restaurant by Jay Chou. Right now, the growing trend of offering is in theme hotels. These hotels offer something very different apart from the usual “clean” and “good location” ; they provide an ambience that is rarely found.
Wego Boutique Hotel
This is one of the very few hotels that have a jacuzzi, a KTV,a comfy round bed and tv entertainment in your room. You can also choose from many different theme designs and even change the lighting modes to give a romantic or techno mood. From the different romantic themes decor to offerings like Jacuzzi, it is evident that their target audience is couples. Especially young couples with lots of energy! LOL. They are located near to the MRT (Dazhi) and even have a free shuttle bus that you can take to the famous Shilin Night Market.
With a good location, great facilities and service centred around the “love” theme, Wego Hotel is one hotel you can consider apart from the usual clean but boring hotels. Reviews here.
Price per night : 150 SGD (Reviews and more info)
Location: Next to Dazhi Mrt
