“Very pleased”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Though not in city center, convenient to railroad and bus station, MRT too. Located one walking block along Jianguo Lu, reached by exiting the rear of the rail station, facing the bus station. The hotel is well maintained, sparkling clean. Breakfast is provided, nice eastern/western choices, well prepared, good variety. Refreshments and treats available in dining room all day and evening, and complimentary self serve laundry is located just off the dining room. Staff is welcoming and helpful, and some speak English. We booked a 'larger' room, which was small, just cozy, but not an inconvenience for 2 people. Bathroom with shower, fine. Some previous posts complained of the one elevator being a problem, but we never found it to be an issue. Booked on Agoda, and for the price, we found it a real value.

Very near to Kaohsiung Main Station just turn to right when exit from station walking distance less then 5 mins located corner of the shoplots ... when entering the hotel all stafts will give you greeting and mostly all the hotel stafts are male. FREE beverage and ice-cream at breakfast dining place. I called hotel directly make reservation and booked very basis room includes breakfast only TWD1400 which no deposit & credit card given. Room small but all the basic facilities provided and FREE wifi. Request for extra pillow and got it within 5 mins times. Good buffet breakfast. The only point need to improve is only one lift and hotel total have around 110 rooms. Will stay here again if I visit Kaohsiung in future.

I stayed in this hotel 2 times, the most recent in May this year. I love the location of the hotel and most of all the staff whom are friendly and helpful. However do note that the room is small and also there is only one lift which you need to be patience especially in the morning.

A great place to stay if this is your first time to kaoshiung,...

Booked this hotel based on reviews here. It lived up to the reviews. Location wise you can't beat it. It is one block from the main MRT location and the Main train station. The room was clean and had a fridge, hair drier. It also had a nice flat screen tv with good reception and a bunch of movie channels in english. The staff were almost overly courtious.

Things I really liked about this hotel are all the little perks. They have four washers and driers and provide laundry soap (first time I have ever been at a hotel with this). The dinning room was open 24/7 with free fresh coffee, ice cream, tea carmel corn. They have 5 computers, new Asus 24" touch screens and a printer ( made printing our return boarding passes a breeze).

In our room I was getting over 1mbps download speed in the dinning room almost 2mbps, so that was a treat. There is a 7-11 right out side the hotel. They have bikes you can use around town too. They really have gone the extra mile without raising the price. This place is stellar value.

The breakfast is gear more to the asian flair but there are some western standards like eggs ham and toast etc.. All hot and fresh. Will stay there again without a doubt.

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.
