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

If you find yourself in Kaohsiung you'll quickly realise that it doesn't have a lot going to interest tourists. Thus to get away from all the unsightly industrial buzz you need to find a really good place to stay & this is it. It is first rate with affordable eating places in the shopping plaza below with breakfast served on... More

Stayed here for one night on Edison’s Five Day Island Tour. Good room on 30th floor with spectacular view over the city. Superior bathroom. Air conditioning the quietest I have ever come across. Breakfast offered plenty of choice, but not for westerners looking for something like a normal breakfast. Steamed and boiled vegetables first thing in the morning are not... More

What can I say!...fantastic hotel and well worth the money. The amenities are endless within the hotel. The pool is great on the 12th floor and open air. The bedroom (stayed in a quad room) was amazing size and great views out over the harbour (32nd floor). Plenty of staff on hand to support whatever you may need. The breakfast... More
