“Nice and clean apartment, small beds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We booked this place since it was the only one that readily replied for availability for our stay in Kaohsiung on June, plus they didn't require up front deposit.

The address was a bit difficult to find, maybe because I'm not familiar with Kaohsiung. It was around 45 minutes away from the Taiwan HSTR station, and located next door to a small family mart and a decent mall. They owner, Uncle Lee, seemed to forgot that I was coming and wasn't ready to receive us. We were directed to deal with a receptionist who was nice but couldn't speak a bit of English. We were told that the apartment wasn't ready until 3 PM, and here we were, at 10.30 AM, with two tired kids after spending a night flying and was expecting a hot bath. But a quick call to Uncle Lee ensured us that the apartment would be ready by latest 1 PM.

It was 1.15 PM when the apartment was really ready. Uncle Lee himself came and escort us to the apartment, which turned out to be really neat, clean and nice smelling. It was rather smallish, but quite compact, with washing machine, TV, mini fridge and a microwave. He even provided us with indoor slippers (since the rooms and living room areas had wooden flooring), adequate number of towels, nice quality soaps and shampoo, hair dyers and extra blankets and pillows. The beds in the small two bedrooms were queen sized but the sofa bed could convert into a single queen. Too bad there wasn't any stove available and not enough eating utensils, but it wasn't a big problem since we were planning to eat out anyway. There was strong wi fi connection, and the TV reception was quite okay. The location was just across the street from an MRT station and some nice eateries.

I would definitely recommend this place to a family of four travelling to Kaohsiung

Room Tip: Uncle Lee's unit is on the 21st floor. Always drawn your curtains to prevent the sun from heatin...
