“Good Location, but not the cleanist”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Good location, very close to the Kaohsiung station. Staff at front desk were very friendly and cheerful.

But the room itself was a bit disappointing, it could be cleaner, for example one of the pillow case was actually dirty and one of the bottled water was already opened. Plus the AC was REALLY noisy.

Note: Due to the major construction work at the station (No noise issue), your best bet to get to the hotel from the underground is to go through the main overground train station and not around in the street levels.

Location is at the Kaohsiung Main Railway station but exit is far on the other side of the station. Room deco is old but the size is ok (around 25m2), wifi is fast, room is quiet and tv has English channel. Service staff is good trying best to please and plenty of eatery around the area. Breakfast spread is good (around 15 dishes) and quiet and comfortable lobby. Opposite the hotel is Kaohsiung main clothing distributor and if you love to shop for clothes, this is the perfect hotel for you.

Location is very convenient, its easy to use the train and MRT. Hotel breakfast is superb.
Rooms are neat, spacious, tidy and renovated not long ago. The staff are very courteous and helpful, will try their best to help. Being on a main road means there are cars passing, but noise is not loud. Learn to walk straight through the Train Station without paying, just take a complimentary pass from the guard.

Room Tip: High floors should be good for a better view.

Very nice hotel. Room is good and spacious. Fast in-room internet connection Great buffet breakfast. Cheap buffet lunch and dinner. The reception and staffs are very friendly. There is also free internet access at the lobbly.
Location is not so good: Passing through the railway station everyday as the hotel is at the rear of the railway station.

Reviewed 7 July 2012

We had a stopover in Kaohsiung as part of a tour around Taiwan, and arrived late in the evening. The hotel faces the main train station, with a multi-lane road facing the front of the hotel. When we got a room on the 2nd floor facing the main road, I was worried about the traffic noise but this proved to be unfounded. We didn't hear the noise at all, and it was only the next morning that you could hear it if you paid attention.

The bathroom had an awkward layout, with the shower curtain being hung too far away from the tub. The curtain couldn't be draped with the lower end in the tub, so water would definitely pool on the floor around the tub. It also didn't help that the tub was quite high, so one needed to be careful stepping in and out, especially with the wet floor.

Breakfast in the hotel wasn't satisfactory, with limited choices and small quantities. We also didn't realise that the hotel was quite near (a few blocks) away from the night market, so didn't manage to see it.

Reviewed 9 January 2011

The hotel seemed decent enough. The mattress was firm but comfortable. The tub had a high rim, making it a pretty high step to get in and out of the shower. The furniture seemed a bit dated but in good condition. Breakfast was a buffet with Asian-style choices and the food tasted fine. Note that unlike many American hotels, the doors to the rooms are not on a hinge, so they won't close on their own, and like hotels I've been to in Europe, you must insert the tag attached to the key into a slot near the door to activate the lights.

The location was awkward. While being across the street from the train station was convenient, having to pass through the station's paid area to get to the metro was a bit of a hassle. The hotel provides passes that let guests pass for free, but this doesn't help for passengers arriving by metro, as we were, since we didn't have a pass yet. What we did was get off at the Houyi metro station and walk the few blocks to the hotel from there. If there was an easier way to get to the other side of the train station (or if the metro station had a exits on both sides) it would be an improvement, but there's not much the hotel itself can do to fix the situation.

Hotel rooms and design were very old. Their rooms were very spacious thou, but had some WorldWar 2 feel... which we do not know how to describe.

Will definitely not go back again. We did not have a good night sleep and luckily was there for only one night.

Breakfast was pretty decent.
