When the lobby is on the 39th floor you know you are in for quite a view of Kaohsiung from just about anywhere above that point and we weren't disappointed. The rooms with the best views are the ones from xx07 to xx13 which provide an amazing overview of Kaohsiung's dynamic harbor scene. The room was spotlessly clean and had... More

Very comfortable room with all the amenities and L'Occitane products. This hotel has 85 floors and the rooms have a panoramic view of the city. Don't miss the breakfast buffet on the 39th floor. It's a wide selection but I would recommend the local cuisine - buns with braised meat, porridge with all the condiments and hot soya milk with... More

As 5star hotel the environment of hotel just can say okay. Because the hotel inside of 85sky tower but the security is not really enough. All the people can use the same lift. I think they should make the sensor in lift for holding room key is better. But the breakfast is very good, staff is friendly. Room clean and... More

I did not stay here, rather, I came to see the panorama and city skyline from the 74th floor. Very empty when I came, late at night, but that's the best time, not crowded at all. The city and the harbor view at night is wonderful. I was not so impressed with the shopping, mainly because it looked so empty,... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights and I have to say I was very much impressed! We stayed in one of the Panorama Suites up on the 67th floor. The views of the city were incredible and almost as good as from the observatory level. The best part of this hotel is the friendly and accommodating... More

Attended a conference recently and stayed at 85 Sky Tower Hotel in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Easily accessible in the city of Kaohsiung, near a subway stop, shopping, the port and restaurants. The hotel begins on the 39th floor and the views from all sides are spectacular. Facilities are clean, well-kept, and the service is customer-focused. The High Speed Rail (HSR) system... More

A truly five star experience at the 85 Sky Tower hotel. We got a great deal via Expedia and got a massive Junior Suite with two King-Sized beds as a "family room". Massive ensuite with an additional washroom, two TVs and separate climate control. Service from all staff was impeccable, plus a half-hourly shuttle bus to the Sanduo Shopping District... More

Located 20 mins away from KH airport by taxi, the hotel is the tallest building in KaoHsiung, room is spacious, staff are friendly and helpful, but the hotel is a bit old and room needs renovation. Interestingly, this is the only hotel I've stayed at so far that includes alcohol swap in their amenities pack.

The hotel is very nice overall. There are several very fast elevators to get you from the street level to the actual reception area.
