Had an enjoyable 3d2n stay here. The nearest MRT would be Central Park station, and its abt a 10 mins walk to the hotel. Take Exit 3 and follow the path until you see a temple. Continue walking down and you'll see the hotel across the wide junction. Was able to check in early at abt 1pm on the first... More

The bed was large and cosy, the room was very clean, and the bathroom was more than adequate and all necessities were available. The included breakfast was easily NT$150 if... More

Booked the club level where we enjoyed afternoon tea and free drinks/cocktails. Breakfast at the Marketplace is great and the spread is awesome. The gym and pool area is amazing offering a fantastic view. I used the spa facilities and my massage was really good. Our room rate also included a laundry discount which we took advantage of.

We had a room w window view on the 6th floor. We love the picture on the wallpaper (a trees w/o leaves) and the bed quilt cover (face of a little girl)....The breakfast they serve is awesome though only per serving. The staff are friendly.

The hotel is located centrally, close to 2 metro station, although it does require about a 5-7 minute walk from Central Park station. We had a room with no window, but a unique balloon/star gazing design. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows are a little soft. The room and bathroom are both spacious. There were tons of toiletry and... More

Great hotel location, great price, and fantastic breakfast included. Love the unique design of each room! Plenty of amenities provided in room. Close to various attractions around Kaohsiung, Central Park Metro Station is only about two blocks away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With a natural and seemingly accidental presence The Icon Hotel is situated in a corner of the popular XinJueJiang Shopping District. Adjacent to the ever so elegant Central Park metro station, and across the tree-canopy-clad Minsheng Rd., is a simply classic structure full of creative twists.We chose white as our foundation and embellished it with vibrant brushstrokes. Through the creative efforts of numerous artists from around the globe, beyond language and cultural barriers, boundless imagination is materialized in 36 dimensions.Humorous originality frolics in every corner of the hotel as we hope that at every turn of the corner you might let out an occasional chuckle. The Icon is creativity, it is art, and it is a lifestyle. With a humble and low-key attitude we have shattered the traditional impressions of motels, inns, and hotels. Here at The Icon we have orchestrated a visually and aesthetically pleasing feast.The Icon creativityUniquely craftedWe are The Icon! ... more   less
