Based on reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give Kindness Hotel at Kaohsiung Main Station a try. Great location, very courteous staff, free breakfast, beverages and laundry at a very reasonable price through agoda.com.

The hotel is located within a 3 minute walk from Kaohsiung main station and a leisurely 10 minute stroll to Liu He night market. There are several eateries close by. Located along the main road, it is very safe and there is always a staff member at the front desk.

Wiull definitely stay here again.

This Kindness Hotel is part of a chain operating in five cities with ten locations in Kaohsiung, with this one two blocks away by Kaohsiung Main Train Station according to its website..

Everyone is greeted with kindness, politeness, and bowing from its staff as you leave the lobby. The entrance to each room has an outer glass door, the room itself is small, the AC outlets and electrical power switches are conveniently located, wired LAN via RJ45 jack, free wifi, shower has a fixed shower head, switch to six adjustable body spray heads, or switch to a handheld shower, the shower curtain wouldn't pull completely close to the wall, the shower was nice, comfortable firm support for a good night's sleep, digital remote control for the air conditioner.

Buffet breakfast served 7-10 am was very good, allow an hour so go by 9 am, else you may need to round up what you want as they take down the breakfast at 10 am. There's free coffee/tea, ice cream around the clock, free use of self laundromat including laundry detergent, complimentary disposable raincoat, use of a bicycle. Nail clipper, first aid kit, DVD player may be requested from the front desk. Five Apple Macintosh computers available for use in their lobby with copying/printing.

Some shortcomings: the clothes dryers didn't dry the clothes when you can get one as the dryers are in use or the guests fail to promptly remove their clothes; there's only one elevator so avoid using it at 10 am as breakfast service concludes - there's a long line waiting guests for a ride up the elevator as well as a vendor with three carts of laundry waiting to use the elevator. Also try to avoid using the elevator at 12 pm as there's heavy use from guests checking out.

Bottom line: A great business model. This is a really new and very pleasant stay experience for such a moderate price, rate it a basic room plus, best value for the money, based on my experience stay here, recommending this hotel chain hands down. I hope they extend their coverage to include Taipei.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights back in July 2011.

The hotel location was good, a few steps away from the KH Main Station, so getting around with the public transport was easy.

The hotel staff was courteous and polite. The breakfast spread was simple but adequate. There's free ice-cream for hotel guests 24hrs, and the coffee from the coffee-maker was good. There are 4 washer + dryer in the hotel, so you do not need to queue for long to do laundry.

The only complain I have is the room. The room was small and there wasn't much space to move around. The bathroom ceiling is low, and people >6ft tall will have trouble taking shower in it. However, the room is clean and the bed was comfortable.

Great location, just outside Kaohsiung main station.

Subway sandwiches and 7-11 right out the main door.

Staff were friendly, they kept greeting you as you walk in and out the door, I thought it was a bit excessive but you can't fault them for greeting you.

Breakfast was good.

Free internet, wired and wireless. (pretty good speeds too)

3 kinds of shower heads, 1 for your feet, 1 is the standard shower head hanging above you and another funky shower head, I think it's for massaging? Didn't try it.

Comfortable beds, big tv, lots of channels to watch.

Cons:

Room size. It's pretty small, but unless you're jumbo sized, it's good enough.

Window. Don't expect a nice view or a big window.

Conclusion:

Terrific hotel, if they opened another branch in Taipei, that'd be awesome!

Room Tip: Get rooms on the low floors, the lift is slow since there's only one and you can just walk down...

Kindness Hotel Kaohsiung Main Station Front (or call Kaohsiung High School branch) is very good hotel with affordable rate.
1) Breakfast many choices --- excellent, you can enjoy the unlimit ice cream and coffee while you are using the computer. The only thing is very good business that you might need to wait sometimes at the peak breakfast hour.
2) 5 computers for checking e-mails or surf net. ---- good
3) 4 washing machines+ 4 dryers, easy for washing incase you are staying more than 2 days. --- excellent
4) if not mistaken 7 ~ 8 units "Giant" folding bike for free rental --- excellent
5) Room Size : OK for family room (4 persons) -- good
6) Staff : Good service and attitude, when you out from the lift, the front desk staff will stand up and say hello to you. --- excellent.
Strong recommend to stay there in case you go to Kaohsiung. 3 Minutes walk from Kaohsiung Main Station to the hotel, 4 minutes walk from MRT R11 station. In front easily can find the foods and restaurant, Mcdonalds and KFC also nearby in case you prefer fast food.
