“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

A good location between two underground stations on 'wedding cake street' and very close to the night market. The area felt very safe, even quite late at night. Most of the staff have very little English but they really try very hard to understand you and meet requests.
Rooms are super clean, beds are comfortable and bathrooms are modern. The only downsides to the rooms are the lack of a safe and the lack of drawers for clothes. I had seating for at least six people but only one open clothes hanging area.

Superb value for money considering that you get very good wi fi, free laundry and 24 hour snacks including some very good ice cream, and cakes. Though I didn't use them, there are also plenty of bicycles to borrow for free. All in all, I've been very impressed with my stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The higher the better. No view from the side rooms and you don't want to be on the sixth floor o...

This hotel is centrally located and within a 5 minute from subway stations (Formosa Station and City Council). We're used to getting a lot of perks with SPG because my husband travels often for work, but for the value (approx. $50/night via Expedia), the value is unbeatable. There is 24 hr coffee/tea/ice cream and desserts. The breakfast is pretty nice and they also throw in afternoon snacks. The hotel has has free laundry. The rooms were clean and the staff is very helpful. We had an early morning flight where we would miss breakfast and they went out and purchased drinks and sandwiches for us (free of charge). They also arranged a taxi for us and inquired re baggage fees for the cab. They definitely go the extra mile. Highly recommended!

The hotel is located at a convenient location which is just a short 5 minutes away from Formosa Boulevard mrt station and the famous Liuho Night Market. Do check out the exact Kindness hotel branch before making your way here as there are many Kindness around the area and one may mistake the hotel without making prior check.

We enjoyed the great hospitality here. The hotel provides free desserts, drinks throughout the day and there is a free laundromat service located just behind the restaurant. There is free wifi at each level but the stability varies.

The breakfast buffet is so-so, there's rice, noodle, buns, bread, just to name some. There is a family mart (convenience store) located just opposite the hotel.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay and we recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kaohsiung.

This hotel is centrally located in downtown of Kaohsiung. Room size was alright and the room is very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Can access to this hotel with metro and just with walking distance to night market.

First, the staff are hardworking and helpful. Amazed at their politeness and professionalism.
Second, the ice cream, coffee and laundry are complimentary at their dinning area 24 hrs.
Third, the hotel pays attention to details and is one of the cleanest I stayed in Taiwan so far.

We were greeted warmly by the staff of the hotel who bow everytime you come out of the lift or walk in through the main door. The staff service was great and very courteous towards all guests. Many great freebies like 24-hr freeflow drinks-hot & cold and ice-cream which make the children very happy. The room is small though like those you find in HK. Location is great and just 2 streets away from the famous Kaoshiung night market featuring the fabulous Papaya Milk Shake. The washing machines/dryers are located on the first floor with complimentary washing soap powder. You canm request for a big "Bao" anytime when you are hungry at the dining lounge. Never regret staying at this hotel and was overwhemled by their service. The nearest MRT is at Farmosa featurin the #1or2 most beautiful MRT station in the world. From there, it's just a couple of stops to the local train station or the high speed train. Will definitely revisit this hotel when we're going to kaoshiung.

Room Tip: Request for road side facing for a better view of the city.

This my second night in room 716 in this hotel. When I arrived in Kaohsiung, I spent one night at the Sunnyside Hotel which is right in the middle of the night market street. That cost 1400 TWD (approx $46 Australian) so I thought it was cheap. Unfortunately the room was so small I had to go outside to change my mind. Any way I will write a separate review on that one. Hence I moved to the Kindness hotel instead. This room is a Superior room so it's not the smallest one they have. However it was still only 1800 TWD (approx $60 Australian) which is still dirt cheap.
This room is certainly a decent size with a good bed and an excellent bathroom and a huge shower which has overhead, hand held and body spray options. The was immaculately clean on arrival.
The hotel included in the price, full buffet breakfast with mostly eastern but at least some western options. There is popcorn, ice cream and drinks available 24 hours, free laundry, wifi Internet, free bicycles and very friendly service.
The guy at reception smiles so much I became concerned this face might explode!
When I tried to connect to the floor wifi, I did have some trouble with that. When I told reception I had a problem, they immediately provided me with a wifi router and Ethernet cable so I could have a personal router in my room.

The hotel is immaculately clean throughout and you you have a comfortable room with great service. It' certainly not the Hilton by any means, but for Asian room sizes and standards, and for what you are paying you are definitely getting more than your monies worth here. You really won't go wrong. Having seen what's around I will take the safe bet and will come directly to this hotel when next I visit Kaohsiung.
