“Small.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This hotel is located in the 'old' city area, and its quite a distance to the 'new' city area...
there is not much to see around here and if you walk around at night you are often annoyed by old guys on motorbikes asking if you want a ''certain'' type of girl...i was personally asked 4 times in one short walk.
There is a MRT located just 2 minutes walk up the road which gets you into the city or you can take a bus but personally id much rather just stay in the main new city area.
The hotel room itself is very clean and nice but pretty tiny...hardly room to open up your bag..

This is the best hotel that we stayed during our Taiwan trip.

Firstly, the location.The hotel is just 5-minute walk from Kaohsiung train station as well as the MRT station. The night market is also within walking distannce.

The breakfast provided is of wide variaty of choices. The breakfast is superb and our kids really enjoyed all the snacks and ice-creams.

The staffs are exceptionally polite and helpful. The family room is very spacious and clean. There are also washing machines and dryers where you can do the laundry for free.

We were pleasantly surprised by the standard and quality of this hotel. We definately recommend this hotel to those who travel to Kaohsiung.

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?
