Stayed for 2 nights in a family room. Price is pretty fair but room is really outdated. I can see they try hard to maintain it but the details of the bathroom could show that it's an old hotel. The mattress was OK but the feather pillow was a disaster. I couldn't sleep well for two nights! However the service... More

A nice business hotel, in a good location very close to the main train station but not a walking distance; 5-10 minutes by car/taxi. There is plenty of convenience stores and restaurants around. The room was good size and was very clean. The front desk was efficient and helpful when we asked for some directions and information. The internet connection... More

This is a good hotel with friendly and competent staff. Check-in and check out were quick and easy, the housekeeping manager responded quickly when we needed assistance, and the breakfast manager brought a freshly fried egg when we complained about the eggs being cold. Another big plus is the rooftop bar on the 30th floor with great views of Kaohsiung,... More

Very few people spoke English in this hotel but they were helpful. Others were too shy. Location of this hotel was perfect. Close to everything. Night market, shopping, attractions. Airport was about 20 minutes away. Close to the MRT. We had opted for a two queen size bed room. Beds were very convenient and soft. No great views. But worth... More

I'm a Platinum Member with Starwood Hotel chain, and the ONLY reason that I'm staying here is because they DO NOT have a Starwood Hotel in this City. My brother's company routinely place guests in this hotel, and he was able to book a Rosewood Club level room for me at a very reasonable rate. I've been to the Howard... More

We went with 4 adults and two boys (8yr and 11yr old) in August 2014. We stayed four days and three nights there. The hotel lobby was beautiful with upper class name brand stores (ex: Prada, Hermes...etc). Breakfast was good with many selections, I definitely recommend getting breakfast there. The two swimming pools and one jacuzzi up on the rooftop... More

Well known establishment in a decent location with a nice but expensive rooftop bar. The staff were always very ready to please us and were quite friendly. The food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was good or average depending on the dish, but the food served at the function hall (closing ceremony for our martial arts comp) was... More

Hotel was good, the staff was attentive and helpful (also the fact that i almost sound like a local) the rooms smelled... old. it needs a revamp of design. It's stayable if you are not too fussy. Good location too.

Some renovations to freshen it up a bit would make a huge difference as the hotel has already very many strong points. We basically picked it on the following 3 criteria: the outdoor rooftop pool (very nice -- and hot tub...), the gym and the location. The bellboys and reception staff work hard to please you, in spite of the... More
