A very nice hotel located in a great area of Kaohsiung. The staff is very nice and helpful, and the majority speak very good english. Breakfast on the top floor is always excellent but is commonly very crowded. We always met for drinks in the lounge area in the main lobby and the majority of night there was live music.... More

Been in this hotel many times over the last 10 years, the standard of service has been consistently kept very high. Great room comfort, excellent staff attitude and helpfulness. Outstanding selection of restaurants, a mention is deserved by the Lobster Bar and the japanese-style Teppanyaki at the 45th floor. Very good breakfast spread at the 43rd floor. Classic grand lobby... More

Huge hotel, best place to get a clean and safe massage is right across the street. I paid $80 U.S. Dollars for one hour foot massage followed by one hour back massage. Terrific value. Excellent high end shopping mall adjacent to hotel. Excellent concierge service, arranged for a three hour city tour and was very pleased.

The Grand Hai Lai is a classy hotel that takes care of its guests. If you ever have a need they will meet your expectations with total professionalism. The breakfast/dinner buffet at this hotel is first rate. The internet works with very good speed and no down time. The TV has many English speaking stations with movies. A very nice... More

Rooms were excellent - but not very large (this was made up for by one of the most comfortable beds of my travel thru Taiwan). The some what limited contact I had with staff was also excellent. Location is reasonably good in a down town area with a number of places to explore shop/eat within walking distance or simply stay... More

The décor is definitely a little out dated but it goes well with the theme of the hotel. The restrooms consisted of a... More

Just there earlier in the week. Large hotel, many floors. Tons of restatutants. Good location to go out and venture. Good service, nice rooms. Did not have chance to see pool. Breakfast is not the best. Lots of variety, but taste was not all that. Still recommend.

Stayed in the hotel for one night in Dec 2014. Rooms are spacious and with the upgrade, our room has a small balcony overlooking the river. Free parking for hotel guests and free wifi inside the room. Breakfast was good with great variety of food including fresh fruits at good quality. There are plenty of restaurants including Chinese, Western and... More

Came here to stay for one night with my wife for our Valentine's day and was pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed it. Service - Impeccable. From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out, everyone was great in their service. Friendly and very helpful. We were also given a bottle of red wine and a box... More
