I stayed in this hotel alone (as the lady could not come along) for two nights, and have to say it was overall an enjoyable stay. You can get there by taking the express bus from Kaohsiung and getting off at Chateau Hotel (xia-du), then walking along the road a little, turn right into another road after the McDo and walking along that road for a bit. It is possible that you can get out one stop further, but I did not want to risk it, personally.
(You can get to Kaohsiung from Taipei via the High Speed Rail [HSR], taking the bus from the terminal station in Kaohsiung. Or, from Taipei airport, take the shuttle bus to the closest HSR station, and take the train from there.)
I got a room on the second floor, relatively close to the lobby. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable. The room included a TV with quite a few channels, including about 10 English-language ones (no channel guide, but I don't find that to be an issue). The hotel was quiet enough, I had no issues with noise at any time.
The bathroom was a positive surprise - it is quite spacious for this size of hotel, bigger actually than the ones you get at Chateau Hotel down the road.
Breakfast can be had two house down the road - you get a voucher from the hotel for the breakfast there. You have the choice between three foods - sandwich, burger or mixed. I am not a breakfast person, so again no issue there, just right. The only peeve was that the breakfast place did not have coffee at all, just a (rather sweet) black tea.
The staff was friendly, even though they only had very limited knowledge of English we managed to communicate fine. They even asked if I wanted the room cleaned - since I was alone, and only staying two nights, I found it a waste and said no.
Overall, very good value-for-money.
