It was a comfortable stay on a business trip. Spent 2 nights there, and the hotel room was almost faultless - clean and comfortable. Perhaps the only drawback was the dim lighting in the room. As I needed an iron, it was provided promptly by the housekeeping team. The lobby staff were extremely friendly and helpful as well.

Location was good, as it was next to the Love River, which is a little below expectation, given the romantic ring to the name. Food for the buffet breakfast was average. Nothing special worth mentioning. However, the dim sum at the restaurant on the second level was excellent. Value for money as well.

It was a good hotel for a reasonable price.

About the room -- The room we got was clean and furnished well. The view of the Love River was very good from our window. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was slightly small and weird though because there is a small step to enter into the bathroom so, watch out as you might trip.

About the breakfast -- My dad did not enjoy the breakfast. He boycotted breakfast on the 2nd day because he thought everything was tasteless. The selection was good enough as there were options from Japanese, to Chinese, to American. The breakfast area was nice. It was next to the pool and it was bright and clean.

About the pool -- The pool area was actually pretty nice. It was circular in orientation. They used wood as flooring before the pool, then, there was even a Bose speaker system there. What I found weird though was the location of the pool--it was right next to the side of the road. If you try to peep up from the pool, you might get a chance to view the Love River so, it might be nice? But, I don't think I'd like to swim there out of fear that someone from the street could just be watching me when I swim.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

Prawn rice in lettuce, eel and kung po chicken all superb, but the pinnacle of a fabulous meal was the Peking Duck. Beautiful smokey aroma, perfect crispy skin served with a thin slice of lemon. Next pancakes with duck, spring onion and plum sauce, then a wonderful fragrant soup. Perfection. Finish with a drink in the sky lounge with great views over the river and right across the city.

I was in town for meetings and my hosts put me up in this hotel. This was really quite a nice hotel along the Love River. Spacious lobby, good restaurants, and nice fitness area - but you have to pay :^(

Stayed here while visiting kaohsuing for a friends' wedding. The hotel lobby was really quite impressive and grand, which heightened my expectations for the room. However the room, while clean and tidy, was quite small and did not match the grandeur of the lobby. Great location though right next to the love river.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled solo

Although it is not new, it is still a very nice hotel which have all the facilities of 5 star hotel not for the prices you would expect to pay. very nice and kind stuff, clean rooms, wide variety breakfast and many more.location is also very good, just on the love river and very near to the train station. this is the only place i stayed in Kaohsiung but i am pretty sure that if i have to come back in the future it will be my first choice

Room Tip: the view to the river is nice but i would not add money for it
