This hotel is right in the heart of the action - the night market is literally on the doorstep. Make sure you get a room at the back of the hotel unless you want noise and smell of stinky tofu frying. 1 minute walk to subway. Bus loads of tourists stay here that can be very noisy. Room is very... More

Location just average, rooms are very basic, cleanliness is just ok, most importantly front.desk receptionist is VERY rude. As if someone owes her a million dollars. I travel to Kaohsiung for work quiet often, there are a lot of boutique/business htls now that provides much better room facilities and uniqueness, especially superb service! i would totally advise against this hotel!

The hotel is renovated or under renovation, with cheap but smart solutions that are almost HK style, without the style, but the idea is there.. IKEA style we may say. on the cheap side. However apart this, things are not perfect, corridors are modest or not painted/finished, and doors are quite basic too (no isolation), however rooms enjoy double glass... More

location is one of the best for this hotel, near MRT station and in the famous Liuhe market. so you don't need to go far to have all the good food. just don't get lost with the MRT exit, as I remember there are moer than 10 exit points as this is the intercnage of the different lines. breakfast is...

Right smack in the middle of Liuhe night market. Location is more than perfect. Take escalator from exit 1 up, turn right and walk a little more rather than climb up the 1,273,825 flight of steps at exit 13 (which shows as nearest in maps). Rooms are clean and well managed. A little too small for big luggages though.

It was better than I expected. I was put in here for a work trip, and I was concerned with the noise level, but I had a room facing the back and it was fine. No problem with noise. The rooms are quite clean, but when I first went in, it smelled like chemicals and bleach a bit too much.... More

I spent one night at the Sunnyside hotel 2 days ago. It wasn't prebooked as my business associate picking me up from the airport suggest there was no problem getting a hotel. Probably my fault was asking for something close to the night markets. This hotel is actually in the middle of the night markets so you literally step out... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel because of it's convenient location to the subway system. It is literally a two minute walk from Formosa Station (the interchange station of the two subway lines of Kaohsiung). The hotel room was very clean. The counter staff were very friendly, although they did not speak English very well. Breakfast was also... More
