Royal Group Hotel Chang Chien Branch
Tip 1: How to get there? If you arrived Kaohsiung HSR (Zuo Ying Station), you need to catch the metro to Kaohsiung metro station. When you get to Kaoshuing Metro station, use Exit no. 1 to exit. When you arrived upstairs from the escalator, you will see the main railway station. Ignore that, instead you look up around you and you will find the hotel's Chinese name printed at the top of the building - 御宿商旅
It is a white/black building, cross the road under the bridge and you will see it on your left.
Tip 2: Best advice i gonna give you. This hotel only allows check-in at 6pm! Basically there was no details about checking-in time when we book the hotel and the hotel receptionists were very rude. Well, they were just equally rude. I think its just the town itself, most of the people in Kaohsiung are not overly or highly-educated so i don't blame them. The customer-service you get is not what you will find in Taipei. Taipei's customer-service is top-notched.
Tip 3: Be very aware that this hotel is not close to any pharmacy at all. There is a Watson near the train station but they don't sell much drugs like stomach ache's tablets or anti-inflammatory.
Tip 4: To get to Dream Mall? I suggest you catch a taxi outside the hotel because the metro station at Dream Mall is about 1 -2 km away.
Tip 5: The room is very basic and the corridor is quite tiny. We booked into a deluxe room but it was near the lift so we could hear people coming in and out of their room all the time. Overall its clean and cheap so we are not that fuss.
Tip 6: The best thing about this hotel? Their hotel buffet is not too bad considering their hotel staff's service. You get find quite a lot of food selections from ice-cream to dim-sum.
Tip 7: Outside the hotel, there are ads of coach buses company that will bring you to Foguangshan (Buddha Enlightenment Temple) at very cheap prices. Do not take taxis or cab there because its a rip-off
