"Meander Taipei is not only a living quarter but also our attitude in travelling and in life."

So much of Taiwanese culture is about sharing and building bonds with those we cross path with. We welcome those who seek friendships and are eager to meander Taipei together. Meander strives to share with you our favorite aspects of Taiwan by incorporating into our common area and corridors visual elements from the old aborigines and current Taiwanese lifestyle.

We are conveniently located 10 minutes away from the Metro station, in the heart of the bustling Ximending. It is a central hub of Taiwanese fashion and culture, with over 6000 vendors. During the day, stroll around the city to see small concerts, album launches, and street performances. At night, venture to the Theater street with over 20 theaters or experience night life at many local clubs and pubs.

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. Meander offers a variety of rooms including ensuites, mixed and female dorms furnished with personal access card, personal locker, linen, Wi-Fi and air conditioning. In addition, our large roof top terrace and common area encourage guests to mingle, relax and exchange traveling experience. We look forward to sharing with you the best of Taipei.

Meander Taipei was newly renovated from an antique hotel situated right in the heart of the bustling Ximending district.
