“Great Value and quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Walked to the MRT station in 5 minutes. Central park and "little Ximending" just 3 minutes walk away. There's an upscale shopping mall just down the street. Lots of little eateries just around the corner. Excellent location.
Rooms are compact with a queen bed. Although small but bigger than European standard. Bathroom quite big as well, even equipped with a free standing bathtub!
Daily breakfast included, coffe tea in the room, fast wi-fi free of charge. The staff here like everywhere in Taiwan, very helpful and sincere.
Absolutely recommend this hotel!

Excellent location, excellent service. Being a 4-star hotel but you can enjoy 5-star service. Although the room is a bit small, the ceiling is not high as well, you can enjoy free drinks and pop-corn for 24 hours in the restaurant. You can use the washing machine and drying machine for free in the laudry. Free mineral water, tea and coffee packs are provided, you can use the free wi-fi as well. The internet speed is fast. Free use of “giant” bikes are provided for hanging around in the town. You can cycle to the main sightseeing sites in the city, saving much transportation cost. It takes you only 3-minute walk to the train station and MRT station nearby. The staffs are courteous, they greet you whenever you come to the lobby. They are very helpful for any enquiries. What more are you looking for?

Room is small but clean and neat. Bathroom is relatively big. One drawback is the annoying sound of the aircon's thermostat. Breakfast provided with a wide variety of food, ranging from western to chinese style. Booking through email was hassle-free. Check-in was fast. The staff is very well-mannered. They would greet you everytime you step into the lobby. Tea, coffee, juices and pop-corn were provided for free in the coffee house. Free flow of ice cream, too! I just love it! The hotel is located near to Kaohsiung Station and the metro is just next to the station. No late check-out allowed unless you pay for it, but the hotel could help to keep the luggage. in short, I am satisfied and happy with this hotel.

We would put this hotel with the likes of the best-run Formula Ones: small (our room fit a double bed, TV, small desk and not much more), exceedingly clean and convenient. But it gets better, because despite its small size, no amenity was lacking, wireless internet was free and easy to use in the room, plus the room was seemingly impervious to any outside noise: In short, no frills but absolutely no complaints. The staff was unbelievably courteous. The breakfast was nothing special (as we expected), yet there was a range of choices and the atmosphere was, again, clean and pleasant. With all of this for under $60 a night (and during the lunar new year to boot) how could we not give the Kindness Hotel a 5 out of 5?

An excellent, small and very clean hotel in the heart of Kaohsiung. Outstanding service and very friendly staff. Rooms have nice hardwood floors and the beds are very comfortable. Quiet and relaxing. My favorite hotel so far in Taiwan!
