“Great location, walking distance to shopping districts/MRT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Check-In Process:
The process was quick and hotel staff is friendly. The main language used is Mandarin. This is the only hotel I’ve stayed in Taiwan with the every staff greeting you with a bow every morning and evening.

Room Condition:
Room size is acceptable, with enough walk space. There is no window in our room.

Internet:
Free secured WIFI. Internet access via cable is available at the work desk in the room.

Breakfast:
Simple breakfast offering both Taiwanese porridge and American breakfast. Free ice cream and tea/coffee throughout the day.

Environment:
It’s about 10minutes walk from Central Park KRT station. Along the way, you’ll bypass the 2 famous shopping districts - Shinkuchan (新掘江) and Harajuku Yuchu (原宿玉竹). The hotel also provides free bike rental and free launderette.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Kindness hotel (on Wufu 2nd Road) exceeded my expectations in all aspects.
The rooms were very large and clean, which a big bathroom. The rooms are like japanese style which different sections of the space clearly serving a purpose (shoe storage area, bedroom, makeup/ clothes area, then leading to a large bathroom).
Rooms are very clean (daily) and very quiet despite being close to a busy road - the seals on the windows are effective.
Bicycle rental is FREE (awesome). I'd recommend getting the mountain bike with suspension. The foldable bikes, while cute, have no suspension and you get a very sore butt at the end of a ride.

The reception staff and manager are incredibly polite and helpful.

Breakfast is included and there is a pretty decent spread of things.

The location is good - it's close to some good night markets and walking distance to Central Park station. If you are going to Kaohsuing by HSR and if you don't have too much luggage, you catch the MTR to Central Park station then walk to Kindness hotel (if you want to save some yuan). Otherwise just get a cab straight from Zouying HSR station, it'll be under 300 TWD.

Would definitely stay here again if I visit Kaohsiung again.
