“Nothing special, better can be found”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

This is basically very popular with Asians, by which i mean it is not a western style, think dark carved wood and gold bits everywhere.

We were shown three rooms before we found one which did not smell of drains. They all looked out onto a brick wall , so avoid rooms ending with a three. The room on the front was better, I'd say an average 3 start hotel standard.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, we didn't bother with breakfast on the second day as there was nothing we wanted to eat.

If you are western and prefer a western style of modern hotel then try somewhere else, this cost us £55 uk which was only a little cheaper then the 5star places in town, and we Shpuld have stayed there. Even better, id recommend staying 30mins away by train at the shangri la in Tainan and coming in on the train, where we then went on to stay for the second time!

Great place to stay. The service was amazing. When we entered the room there was fruit with a note welcoming us and wishing us a pleasant stay. The staff even offered their help in finding a hotel in Taipei. Hands down the best I stayed in, in Taiwan,amazing staff and an amazing service. Book through the internet it is cheaper!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

Very welcoming and alert staff with sincerity in helping to ease any problematic situations or questions I enquired. Daily breakfast is generous, diverse and routinely kept refreshed. My room was perfect for me; spacious, very tidy and very clean. I am more than content to stay here again when I return to Kaohsiung. I spoke with a few visitors and they seemed quite content to return as well. It's location is a 5min stroll from the MRT (next to cinemas). There are surrounding night markets with a variety of nightlife spots within walking distance. A mixture of local and western surprises and as I've discovered since being in Taiwan the locals are incredibly friendly and honest. A very happy stay and would highly recommend to one and all.
