“Would pass if I go back to Kaohsiung”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Friend and I went to Kaohsiung to visit, stayed 2 nights at the Love River Boutique Hotel. The hotel is located in the old part of the city, within walking distance of the subway, some convenience stores, a "thrift shop" and some restaurants.
The décor is ultra-kitsch, with light fixtures changing colour, enormous teddy bear in armchair, purple and white chairs in the restaurant, huge fake flower bouquet in the entrance, everything was too much.
We had asked for a 2 bed bedroom and we were on the 1st floor. The room had a humidity smell, there was absolutely no windows.
A small fridge was in the room with all the necessary stuff to make tea or coffee.
The bathroom had a small window and a bath/shower. This is where our main disappointment came from. There was a bad, really bad smell that came from the bathroom, it smelled like sewage, we ended up buying a febreze spray and we kept on spraying the room the whole stay. We then kept the door close and the lights on so that the fans would keep of working.
Breakfast was not the western type, only chinese food that I never saw really... Only thing that westerners would eat were toast, butter and jam.

Very friendly receptionist. We even borrow their Bicycle as they provide such services for FREE.
Quite near to Love River and Kauhsiong Port to Cijin Island.

The room is very comfy and the size is just right.
The breakfast is buffet style with variety of foods. You won't go hungry in the morning!
The environment is superb and its worth the stay.

Room Tip: Use their bicycle service to go around the town and island.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

after spending a week in backpacker hostels during my travel along the west coast of taiwan, i take this hotel for my last day in kaohsiung, before take hsr back to taipei. booked from an online website and found difficultness to have a room:
1. the staffs prefer to talk in mandarin instead of broken english. until a supervisor sort the problem.
2. my booking (by the online agency) doesn't recognize by them, but again, the supervisor do her best, so i still have ample time to enjoy ai he (love river) before the night fall.
room is ok, got the authentic chinese tea leaves in the table, spacious bed and bathroom but ... the windows is only there or simple i can say "there's no windows in my room". overall, it's enjoyable and i can see marilyn monroe at the lobby, just like in their website. hotel situated within walking distance to darren district, metro station, 7-eleven, and only 1 stop to hamasen district and ferry harbour.

Room Tip: double check the online booker sites!
