I am not sure how people have rated the hotel as " surprisingly good" and "best accomodation experience in Kaohsiung" because that was what I read and now I think its surprisngly bad. I think a lot of people have confused old and dingy with charming and with character. The staff is nice and welcoming but thats about it. The lobby is OK but nothing to write home about. Large but the furniture is delapidated and not particularly welcoming. WiFi is incredibly slow and only on the 1st and 2nd floor - nothing in your room. My room is quite small and everything is really dated - like 1970's dated. I dont see where they spent the billion dollars for renovation. The bed is probably the hardest bed I have ever had the mis-fortune to use...and I stayed at a hostel last night! The comforter and pillow are nice though. The room is clean. I have been staying at the "splendor" for a few other nights for this trip and this hotel does not even compare. The only good thing about this hotel is the location as there are several night spots around and there are several restaurants with an English menu nearby- a welcome change and hard to come by. I honestly cant see why anyone would stay here. The Hotel Splendor is much nicer and has decent food at the hotel and its not singinificantly more expensive. If you are on a budget and traveling solo - I would recomend the Single Inn - much better for the money.
