“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

The walls of this hotel is nicely decorated with cute painted pictures. There are two big maps painted on the wall at the lobby. They also provided free map with nearby attractions and eateries which is very useful.
The location is near to Liuhe night market and City Council MRT Station (7-10 mins walk)
In room, aside from bottles of water, tea, coffee, they also provided cup noodles and cans of soft drink. There is even a rocking chair.
The only problem about this hotel is the room wall is not sound proof. You can clearly hear what people is talking outside the room and also running steps..

Super value - granted prices in Kaohsiung are lower, but we loved this hotel because for the price, their amenities are unbeatable:
- Washer and dryer on second floor (free service, free detergent)
- If the washer and dryer are unavailable, the 24 hr laundromat is around the corner (5 min walk) where you can pay to get your laundry done (self service)
- 7-11 is round the other corner
- lots of food in the area
- 5 min walk from Liouhe Night Market (lots of food!!!)
- 8 min walk to either City Hall MRT or Formosa Blvd (main intersection) MRT (that's where the Dome of Light is)
- Bicycles for rent (we didn't use it)
- Shuttle bus to MRTs
- If it rains, borrow an umbrella by the front of the hotel
- Spacious room
- Housekeeping is very detailed
- Free breakfast
- Free water dispenser (there was one on 3rd floor. not sure if it is on all floors)
- Free ramen noodles in the room! (how sweet of them!)
- Body wash and shampoo in the bathroom
- In room safe

The facilities are clean, and very welcoming. The staff (from front desk to food&beverage) are really nice and courteous. They speak English, so no problems communicating, and they are genuinely gracious and friendly. They are also very knowledgeable with local areas of interest and how to get there.

Love this hotel. Would definitely come back!

Room Tip: When we were there (May 17-24, 2014), there was some renovation/remodelling going on, so from 9.30am...

We decided on this hotel because of its consistently good reviews and the price was acceptable. Very convenient location, close to 2 separate subway lines. From the main Formosa Station, you can walk through the night market to reach the hotel. Lots of hotpot restaurants and bubble tea and convenience stores all within a stone's throw.

In the room, it was tastefully decorated with typical Taiwanese boutique hotel feel. Dreamland type of cartoon drawings, which was pleasing to the eye. The bathroom was brightly decorated as well. The room provided chips and instant bowl noodles which you can have for free!

The windows open, which was good for letting out all the stinky tofu smell we had takeaway from the nearby night market.

We also rented (for free) bicycles from the hotel to cycle to and from the Love river, as well as to the Formosa Station for some snacks.

Breakfast was good and included in the room. Coffee and tea is available 24 hours at the lobby.

Enjoyed the hotel and its perfect service.

A friend highly recommended this hotel so we chose it for our stay in Kaohsiung. The room was clean and comfy. The staff were friendly. Like other hotels we stayed in, the staff briefed us the nearby area so we knew where to get what we need.

This place was a last minute search on internet and what a find ! It is situated in a small alley way off Lioho Road. The street market is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Modern boutique hotel. Rooms are small but comfortable with free Wi-Fi. The room also had a selection of free snacks and noodles. Free DIY laundry and dryer in the basement which was really great for us.The hotel is very close to the City Council station (around 5 mins walk) but there is also a complimentary shuttle to the main exchange station at Formosa Station. The staff are exceptional and are friendly and speak excellent English. The lovely ladies at the front desk, Hilda and May were really great and provided lots of information. Peter and Mr Chan the chauffeurs were really nice and helpful as well. Definitely will stay here again ! Two thumbs up !

Upon entering Legend Hotel i was pleasantly greeted by clean colors, neat decor and large wall sized map of all the touristy areas to visit, in addition, 5 cute colorful imported elephant seats to sit on. The staff were very courteous and accommodating and knowledgable when I asked about the places to visit. (You should just see their wall sized map and almost everything is already there). I seriously LOVE that wall sized map! Every hotel should have one of those!

The fact that the hotel is less than 10mins walk from get to Liu He Tourist Night Market and MRT City Council Station is fabulous. Breakfast in the hotel is quite good and all the vegetable dishes are cooked well. The lift up to the rooms can be small but not much of a problem for me.

As for rooms, they were quite big and comfortable and clean and thank goodness, NO carpets. I do wish that the shower curtain would be slightly cleaner though. The fact that the hotel provides complimentary transfers to the nearby MRT Stations is a clear BONUS.

Seriously, I love this hotel.
The service is excellent - friendly, helpful and welcoming. It provides free shutter bus to nearest train station and subway station.
The hotel is equipped with free xbox games, coffee/pantry area. The best of all, free diy laundry room incl washer, dryer and iron equipment.
Then we come to the room. Room is BIG! Clean and new. We asked for a big bed, the hotel gave us a king size bed, that's awesome! Intersting thing is, the room provides not only the usual coffee/tea and mineral water, there is free cup noodles available! Wifi in the room is fast. But this probably because the rounder is installed just outside our bedroom.
Lastly, the breakfast. Hmm, I wouldn't say the breakfast is great, but it does provide wife variety of food. There were porridge, toast, spagatti and salad. Not extremely tasty, but good enough as complimentary meals.
