As I plan for our first trip to Taiwan with the kids, I am in AWE by the array of kids-friendly accommodation available throughout Taiwan! I’m going to share the most AMAZING hotels and minsu I came across in my research that kids would LOVE. Are you ready? Let’s go!
[warning]Update July 2016: We have received clarification from Sato Castle that they engage professional security guards 24/7 and that the ‘information’ our reader told us of a crime in the hotel was erroneous. We deeply apologise to Sato Castle sincerely for our oversight. After discussion with Sato Castle’s management, we have agreed to remove Sato Castle from this list.[/warning]
Hsinchu Kids-Friendly Accommodation
Leofoo Resort Guanshi 關西六福
Wake up in the morning and see giraffes outside my window? Enough said. Take my money.
For booking, visit Leofoo Resort Guanshi Official Homepage
Taichung Kids-Friendly Accomodation
Red Dot Hotel Taichung 紅點文旅
THAT SLIDE in the lobby is my childhood dream come true. It deserves one more photo.
Besides the slide, Red Dot Hotel also has family rooms that look so comfy!
And better yet, it is located near a night market! The old Zhonghua Night Market 中華夜市, NOT the more famous Fengjia Night 逢甲夜市 market though.
For booking, visit Red Dot Hotel Official Homepage.
Tainan Kids-Friendly Acccommodation
Deely House 迪利小屋
Doesn’t the photo above make you want to book a room there RIGHT NOW?? Its’ crazy right? I don’t expect my boys to sleep in that room! They would be up playing ALL NIGHT LONG. And this is not the only room, here are more.
Just one catch: Their rooms with slides get booked out waaayyyy in advance. I tried booking 2 months before my trip and they were fully booked. *bummer*
For booking, visit Deely House Official Homepage.
Kaohsiung Kids-Friendly Accomodation
Legend Hotel 秝芯旅店
The entrance of this centrally located hotel in Kaohsiung pre-empts you for what to expect once you step in.
Cute and brightly-coloured wall murals and decorations EVERYWHERE!
Even the dining area!
Of course, the rooms are not spared either. They have family rooms, colourfully decorated just like the rest of the hotel.

Kenting Kids-Friendly Accomodation
Our Fairyland & Farm Guest House 二手童話 & 垦丁牧场旅栈
Whether your kids are into fairytale or farms, they would love to stay at one of these themed homestays, operated by the same owner. Cannot decide which one? Stay one night in each!

Huanlien Kids-Friendly Accommodation
Rainbow B&B 花蓮民宿七星彩虹
Seeing a photo of Rainbow B&B’s exterior on one of the hotel review sites (can’t remember which one, I visited so many) made me click on it immediately. It’s so Mediterranean, and I have a soft spot for Mediterranean!
They have double rooms, as well as family rooms that can accommodate up to 5 people. And clever move to paint it all pinkish and throw in Hello Kitty cushions to entice Hello Kitty fans like me!

Yilan Kids-Friendly Accommodation
Jack Beanstalk Hot Spring Bed and Breakfast 傑克魔豆溫泉民宿
Jack Beanstalk B&B has two concepts: The first, as the name suggests, is based on the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Imagine yourself climbing up up up a beanstalk to high up in the sky and leaving all your worries behind.
The other concept is based on Alice in the Wonderland. Though frankly, when I saw my friend’s photos of her stay there, I thought it was Alibaba themed. Either ways, the rooms are spacious and luxurious – hard to imagine that it is actually a Minsu!
Kids will also be intrigued by the towel art folded by the owner!

[disclaim]I have only stayed at Leofoo Resort and Legend Hotel personally, but not the rest mentioned in this post. These are what I came across on the internet while doing research for my Taiwan trip with kids. I am not sure if the hotels will match what is shown in the photos.[/disclaim]
