“An enjoyable stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

An affordable hotel with superb service! Their staffs are very polite & friendly and their room service was great! They serve good buffet breakfast too (though you can’t compare them to the 4 or 5-star restaurants)!

To be honest, you may find their room slightly small in size but you should be happy about the cleanliness of their room. The room don’t look worn out and the air ventilation in the room and bathroom is good too.

It is very near to Kaohsiung Main Station (probably less than a 10-mins walk) and have some good shops around for you to do some impromptu shopping. KFCs, Mcdonalds, Yoshinoya and Subway are also conveniently located around the Hotel area!

I would recommend this hotel to those who wish to have fun in Kaohsiung and be welcomed back to the hotel with clean room and warm smiles from their staffs.

I would definitely re-visit this hotel again if I return for another holiday!

We stayed in Kindness Hotel during our Taiwan tour. We traveled to Kaohsiung by train. The hotel is very close to the main station. They were very kind to allow us to check in at 11am. The MRT station is beside the main station - thus we could do Lotus Lake on our own.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a good selection of pastries. While I was doing our laundry ( 4 washers and 4 dryers), they brought me a large bun with meat filling that tasted great - I already has a large lunch. The computers with large monitors all worked. There is complementary coffee, tea, juice, popcorn, ice-cream. Our room was very new and everything worked. Great value hotel.

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.
