“Great Hotel for Family Vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Great hotel near Kaohisung train station. Friendly staff. Clean & spacious room. My wife was totally thrilled by the hotel's 24 hour free ice cream & laundry facilities (the hotel even provides washing detergent & softener), as well as the free evening tea buffet. There are game machines at the ground floor. Great for family vacation with young children.

We stay there for 1 night. The hotel was located very close to a famous night market at Kaohsiung. This hotel provided free snack ( I would rather called it tea break, bcoz the food provided really like tea break), free wifi, free laundry (they even provided detergent) & dryer as well as bicycle. This hotel staff are very helpful and extremely friendly. I am sure I would come back again. The breakfast was extremely nice. Variety of food was provided.

Everything just worked. It takes 5 minutes to walk to the local night market and downtown Kaohsuing. Instead of charging for everything, there were lots of free amenities - coffee, tea, ice cream, breakfast and evening snacks, and even bicycles. I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed for 2 nights, it was a very pleasurable stay.

I arrived here from Kenting on a Typhoon approaching day, it was a tiring journey. I was running to get out of Kenting, it was raining so heavily. The staff could probably feel see my fatigued face.

Checking in was immediate, there were also wet tissues and regular tissues at the Reception. I was also told that Hotel's cafe provides complimentary tea-time snacks.

The room was pretty spacious. The amenities was No. 1 , they already have a universal port at the dressing table. A cosmetic mirror with lighting adjustable, putting on make up has been taken onto the next level! Comb, manicure set, toothbrush, floss, cotton buds, condition bath foam(they even have mens' and womens') was all provided for. Bathroom was also fitted with spa shower. The channels that the TV had was almost too international. Free WiFi had great speed and stability.


The cleanliness for this hotel is commendable, even their shelves are spotless underneath and on top.

In their common area, computers are provided for our use. You may even choose Windows or Mac. They also provide complimentary self-serve laundry facilities.

Location was very convenient, nearest Formosa Boulevard MRT station is less than 5 mins walk away. And the nearest station itself is an interchange station. Whichever direction you'll be going will still be very convenient. Just slightly further is the Raohe Night Market. There is also a large 7-11 at the start of the road, which is 10M away.

The hotel also provides free rental of bicycle and umbrella. There are alot of traveling information at the Reception too.

The only thing about the hotel is the security of the room's door, there is no lock at the back of the knob. Their locking mechanism is on automatic basis. There is also no manual lock unlike most hotels. Perhaps that is why they had 2 doors for each room.

Nevertheless, it was great place to stay. I feel well taken care of with Kindness.

I will definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Executive room, room price is very similar to Standard. But more space!

A nice business hotel that is near the biggest night market of kaoshiung. The stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean. It's really worth the money to be staying here. They also provide free bicycle rental, ice-cream, coffee, DIY laundry, PC internet which is good for travelers. Overall, it is a enjoyable 2nights stay.

Nanhua Kindness Hotel came across as a hotel that provides amiable service when I visit their website. They have seasonal promotion at times if you book through their partners' website.

We were greeted warmly when we reach Kindness Hotel. Check-in process was fast and they provide free ice-cream (Cone/Cup) throughout the day.

Location is fantastic! 5 minutes away from Formosan Boulevard MRT station and 7 minutes away from Kaoshiung Main Station. No worries about getting hungry at night because Kindness Hotel is 2 minutes away from Liuhe Night Market.

Their room is simply spacious, clean and luxurious; We had booked Superior Room. Amenities such as shower foam, shampoo, conditioner, coffee and tea are provided. Kindness Hotel even has separate toiletries for men and women. There is a choice of either spa shower (Massage jets) or bathtub for their rooms. It is surprising to find that there is a multifunctional socket in the room where most plug with varying pin type can fit. Remember to leave the green tag on the bed if you do not require a change of bedsheet as Kindness Hotel is promoting eco-friendliness.

Breakfast is good for the price that we are paying for the hotel stay. Among our 3 visits to Taiwan and 9 different hotels that we have stayed in, Kindness Hotel's breakfast variety is the best. Porridge, assorted accompanying dishes and condiments, fried noodles, scrambled eggs and meat, steamed buns, cereals and breads, coffee, tea, and fruit juices, their spread is better than what we had expected. Also worth mentioning is their dining staffs who are polite and fast, and have great service attitude.

There were mosquitoes in the room which had bitten us a few times during the night disturbing our sleep. Thus, we spoke to the hotel reception staff the next morning and the lady said she will help us look into the problem. I was quite skeptical as I didn't know what they can do about mosquitoes. Later, she told us that she can provide electric mosquito repellent when we are back after visiting the attractions. It was a nice touch as I did not expect that the hotel would provide such gadgets for their guests. The electric mosquito repellent helped much for the subsequent nights that we stayed in their hotel.

Kindness Hotel provides free rental of bicycles and umbrella. The hotel also offers free laundry service; washing machines are located at Level One and washing powder is provided. The laundry area is undergoing renovation when we visited; therefore we had no chance to utilize the service. The renovation should have been completed by March 2013. Check with the hotel regarding the completion of laundry area's renovation.

The only drawback is the email response is slow or no reply. It would be faster to call them instead of emailing.

Room Tip: Request for the electric mosquito repellent from the hotel front counter if you are bothered by mosq...
