First let me open my heart to you: the quality of care and service of this hotel swept me off my feet. Like kindness is the culmination of many good virtues, so is Kindness Hotel the acme of so many desirable merits.
Just 3 minutes walk from the MRT, Main Train station and bus stop, reaching the hotel and accessing other attractions of the city is a breeze. Just get out of the main entrance and turn left and walk to find all the three terminals. Just the other side of the road in front of the bus stop are KFC and McDonald and other trendy eating places. If you walk straight beyond the MRT you will reach a electronics bazaar with all big names having their presence. Turn right and walk about 500 meters to reach the happening night market. This much about the location of the hotel.
Kindness oozes out of the front desk staff who greet you collectively every time you are in view. The hotel provides free tea, coffee, juice, corn flakes and ice cream to the guests any time of the day. You feel the itch, just walk into the dining hall to have your scoop or cuppa.
The rooms are elegantly made up with wide screen TV and all facilities. Free wi-fi connection is fast. You also get access to internet through the two PCs placed in the lobby for guests. Cycles are supplied free for moving around. Washing machines have free detergent packs made available for you. One hiccup about the washing machine operations. The instructions are in Chinese only without any English translation. As the hotel attracts a lot of tourists without knowledge of Chinese language, the hotel should put the English equivalents too.
Breakfast spread consisted of a wide choices of western and mostly Taiwanese fare. But with a lot of bread and bakery items and plenty of eggs food is not a problem for someone not used to local dishes.
The corridor carpets are clean and smart, the common areas exude brightness and verve. A very good hotel that will elicit some kindness in you.
