4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A reasonably priced, clean and comfortable hotel in a very convenient location. The beds were comfortable, a/c easy to control, bathroom well fitted out and very clean. The free wifi access was good (strong enough signal in our room and it seemed like there were several transmitters on each floor), and the free instant noodles and soft drinks, and option to borrow bikes, were a nice touch. Breakfast was fine, quite a range of things, but the lady started to clear the food away at 10 o'clock on the dot so there was a bit of a rush at 9.55! - obviously people who'd come down a bit late on previous days and found the breakfast all gone. The location is good too - very central, and close to both Kaohsiung's metro lines, so it's easy to get about. Staff on the front desk were friendly. Very good deal - will definitely pick the Legend next time I go to Kaohsiung.

I wouldn't say the rooms were large, they were cozy but presented good value. The most important part for those of you with family is that the rooms were very clean. Also they have present beverages and instant noodles for those late night cravings. Alternatively you are just steps away from one of the night markets in Kaohsiung so you shouldn't go hungry. They offer a water boiler in the room, but you can find a hot water dispenser in the hallway. Breakfast was good and found in the basements. Bicycles are available for those of you brave enough to take a ride along the river.

Now for the cons, the 'smell' of the place can be a little unpleasant, but you are in an sub tropical climate. The WiFi can be slow to a crawl. If you're allergic to noise stay above the 4th floor. Cab drivers will have issues if you ask for the "Legend Hotel", a print out with location or the phone number handy can help.

The rooms are so clean and comfortable . Very big too! You can lay out all the your shopping on the ground and still have space to walk around .

Pros-
Big space and clean environment,
Big dressing table ( important especially for the ladies)
Cozy and cute design of the rooms
Totally worth every penny!

Cons-
Breakfast is just average ..

Friendly and helpful staff offering prompt assistance both online and in person. Room was cute and clean, service daily with good standard. Free use of washing machine and dryer - would be nice if they can put one more dryer. Good wifi connection everywhere except the basement cafe. Bathroom is of reasonable size and very clean.

However, it's not really that close to subway station - at least 10+min walk if you really know the place. That's why the hotel has a shuttle service to and from subway station which you can call to request.

The hotel is at a back alley and from the sign outside it seems like hourly rental is allowed?! Even though during my stay I didnt have the feeling that this is an hourly hotel, it still gives one not very good impression. Ventilation at both the lobby and room smells - very common among old buildings. I would only recommend this hotel to friends who are really budget travellers.

Stayed here one night. Rooms are modern and clean. Staff are very helpful and allowed us a early checkin so my toddler could get a afternoon nap.

Location is on a back road but convient to mrt, night market and most areas.

Free wifi, and allow you to use bikes for touring around

Very satisfied with the hotel.

I liked the hotel. The staff is really nice and helpful. But there is just one person which is speaking english. WLAN is very slow, breakfast is good and the hotel is modern. The rooms are comfortable and a lot of space. The bathroom is nice and clean. MTR is a little far away, about 10min walk. There is a nigthmarket near the hotel. Enjoy your stay.
