The rooms are kinda of small for double. For triple, it is ok. Bathroom for both double and triple are very cramp. If you are a big american fellow, you will find difficulties to move around in the bathroom.
There is a small night market near the hotel.

Reviewed 22 April 2010

Stayed here as part of our tour itinerary. Not sure how much it would cost per night since the accommodation was already included as part of the tour. The room we stayed was ok in size, with an old toilet. The room itself was fine, not especially clean or dirty. Gear hotel is located a bit away from the city centre, so we took a cab to the night market and the shopping area instead of walking. It cost us about NTD100 from the night market back to the hotel. Breakfast served was ok, but could be improved with the food quality.

The Gear Hotel has everything you need - it's clean enough, they provided us with breakfast (albeit from McDonald's), and it's extremely cheap. It's also walking distance from the Love River which is great. However, it's located a little far from the city centre and the nearest metro station (Kaohsiung Main Station) is a 15-25 minute walk down the Jian Guo San Lu. However, distance from the city centre and the metro lines aside, the hotel is clean and graet value for the price. I would definitely consider staynig their again.

Reviewed 29 December 2008

The stay with this hotel ruined my holiday mood. Toilet flush was broken when we checked in. Only realised this when i was using the toilet and that it couldn't flush. When i called the manager up to check, he was accusing us of brokening the flush! To this, I retorted " If you have checked the room thoroughly, why is it that you failed to notice the broken flush and still let us the guests check in to this room and causing so much inconvenience to us? If you still want to accuse us, pls call the police for a thorough investigation in this matter." I did not know what he did to the flush later to make it work, but then, the water flow was still very weak. I wanted to change room but he refused claiming that all rooms were full. As the stay was only a night i did not want to pursue any further. This was the worst service I have encountered. Never again would i step in to this hotel.

Gear Hotel is located at quite a distance from Kaohsiung Train Station, Love River and Liuho Night Market. Average walking time is about 30 mins. Breakfast served can be improved further. Room amenities are okay. Only comments are on the location and breakfast.
