“Great breakfast, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

The hotel is located centrally, close to 2 metro station, although it does require about a 5-7 minute walk from Central Park station. We had a room with no window, but a unique balloon/star gazing design. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows are a little soft. The room and bathroom are both spacious. There were tons of toiletry and 2 bottle of water included.

The breakfast was great and different each day. You get a set filled various offering such as salad, sandwich, skewers and fruits. The beverage bar consist of coffee, tea, milk and juice.

All in all a great hotel for the price and location.

Great hotel location, great price, and fantastic breakfast included.
Love the unique design of each room! Plenty of amenities provided in room.
Close to various attractions around Kaohsiung, Central Park Metro Station is only about two blocks away.

we had a room w/o window but its ok. room is big and comfortable. there is 1 washing machine cum dryer on the top level. breakfast is also very pretty and yummy. the staff at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. she even went all the way out to help me check out bus timetable and gave it to us the next morning. really sweet of her. u can pass your waterbottles to the front desk staff to ask them to refill water for free. location is a bit off from the train station but its still acceptable.

Room Tip: get a room with a window.

Even if Icon is not the best hotel in Kaohsiung, it is certainly the one with the best design. All the rooms come with a different theme and the entire building breathes creativity.

We stayed in the "computer" room which has a motherboard ceiling and a wall decorated with keyboards. The room is on the 8/F and offers a good view of the city. The atmosphere is cozy and warm.

Breakfast comes in a set and is nothing like the normal boring selection of cornflakes, toast and ham. You can feel that these people paid extra effort to make your stay enjoyable.

Another thing I appreciate is the free bike rental, which allowed me to explore the city at ease. Even if you walk, it's just 5 min away from the Central Park station and about 10 min from Formosa Boulevard Station and the famous Liuhe Night Market.

This was one of the best b&b that we have stayed so far! With decent breakfast, cool designed room, friendly staff and most importantly, it is located at the great spot in kaohsiung city! 5 mins walking distance form central park station and 15 mins walk to Shinkuchan district. We love the design concept of the hotel and it's really feel good to be back after a long tiring sightseeing around the city. They actually give out a small souvenir after your check-out, how sweet! :) Do give a chance to icon hotel to serve you with their best service and yeah, we will definitely be back!

With a natural and seemingly accidental presence The Icon Hotel is situated in a corner of the popular XinJueJiang Shopping District. Adjacent to the ever so elegant Central Park metro station, and across the tree-canopy-clad Minsheng Rd., is a simply classic structure full of creative twists.We chose white as our foundation and embellished it with vibrant brushstrokes. Through the creative efforts of numerous artists from around the globe, beyond language and cultural barriers, boundless imagination is materialized in 36 dimensions.Humorous originality frolics in every corner of the hotel as we hope that at every turn of the corner you might let out an occasional chuckle. The Icon is creativity, it is art, and it is a lifestyle. With a humble and low-key attitude we have shattered the traditional impressions of motels, inns, and hotels. Here at The Icon we have orchestrated a visually and aesthetically pleasing feast.The Icon creativityUniquely craftedWe are The Icon! ... more   less
