Scheduled to have a wedding to attend last Sunday and I haven’t been to Kaohsiung for ages. Thus, I decided to stay overnight to visit friend and do some sightseeing. I took the fast train to Zuoying, then took MRT to central park. From there, you can either take bus 100 or took the shuttle bus from exit one to... More

Grand hotel in every way. Great views both over the harbour and city. Decorated with old-world style splendour and very convenient facilities. Beautiful big open air pool. Several restaurants of which one with 2 Michelin stars, there are also many local restaurants nearby. Breakfast very elaborate. The rooms are spacious with good beds, desk, lounge chair and marble bathroom. Really... More

Wifi in the complete hotel has a strong signal and has a good bandwidth all for free. Hotel has about 10 different restaurant spots throughout the building. Especially the Lobster Bar at... More

Once I have plan going to Kaohsiung with my family, this hotel is the only selection for me. Comfortable bed, nice harbor view, and great breakfast lead me to choose it always. I always pay more attention on staff's manner in each hotel I have ever been, their politeness makes me relax more during my vacation. The staff in Grand... More

This hotel is very conveniently situated in the middle of the 2nd largest city of Taiwan. Very close to shopping malls, city attractions, and the harbor. The staff of this hotel was very friendly and the food was finger-licking good. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the higher rooms offered amazing views of the city, by day and by night.... More

Spend here three nights during a business trip to Kaohshiung. The hotel was chosen/reserved for me by a colleague who is a frequent visitor to Taiwan. According to him, this Grand Hi-Lai is the most suitable for us westerners, but I have no experiences about the other hotels there. The hotel was just perfect for the purpose, very nice department...

I booked this hotel because of the hello kitty theme room as I am a fan of it. Even the breakfast also have hello kitty. Athough the rate is on high side but overall worth stay. The Hotel also do provide free shuttle bus to nearby mtr station.

Great hotel in the heart of the city, above a huge shopping mall and food court. Lovely rooms and bathroom, spotlessly clean, efficient service. Great buffet breakfast. Stayed overnight as part of a tour. Flawless checkin and checkout. Great views of the city and harbour from our window.

The décor of the rooms and common area are gaudy-fake European. Otherwise the other aspects of the hotel are very good ---- had a room on the executive floor, so it was large, and had a view of the city and the harbor. The clubroom area was large with attentive staff. Although the snacks and drinks they had there were... More
