“Excellent location, excellent facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Located in the heart of Kaohsiung, the hotel is very well-appointed and has excellent service. Great exercise facilities (large gym) as well. Rooms are spacious and provide a very good view of the city. Very clean.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We stayed from 15-17 May 2013. We were given a room with splendid City view at 60th level. The room is large and clean but slightly dated. The staffs service are great, right from when your cab reached the hotel entrance and to the reception.

The hotel lobby and reception is not at level 1 but level 39. One downside is one need to transfer lift to reach the room - 1 trip to hotel lobby then take another set of lift to the hotel room.

However, you will be greeted by the courteous staffs along the way. The captain even helped us to dispose our rubbish on our way back to room once.

The breakfast is well spread with Chinese and Western spreads. More then you could sample all at one go.

Pricing is reasonable for what you will get on the City view. The location is a 10 Mins walk to the shopping belt and MRT. Overall this great hotel will provide a splendid stay in Kaohsiung. Oh ya, there is a delicious and must try noodle store just down the street.

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel was part of the tallest building in Kaoshiung, the 85 Skytower. The hotel was also called 85 Sky Tower Hotel. The hotel lobby was on the 39th floor and we stayed on the 64th floor with a city view. The hotel was about 7 minutes walk from the Metro station Sanduo Shopping District Station.

The hotel room was general clean, even tough the carpet looked like a bit aged. Very big size room, with all the room amenities of a 4-5 star hotel. Drinks in mini fridge were all free. Fruit basket was provided during our two day stay. Free wifi and wired internet in the room. Very good speed connection. The bed mattress was firm and very good. A/C unit was fairly quiet. Shower room, toilet, and sink were all separate and therefore there was no need to fight for use of facilities.

Very helpful and friendly staff both in the first floor who directs customers to the 39th lobby and in the lobby.

Kaoshiung was a fairly small city. The subway system was very small 2-line system and easy to use.

We recommend this hotel for first timer to Kaoshiung, but won't mind to try some other hotels in the area.

What a great hotel to stay in. Being Australian, in a random city, this place is fantastic to stay in, the staff understood English very well, and was well accommodated. This hotel is a landmark, well located, and all rooms have spectacular views all over and around the city. The food was very good, service great, free wifi at reception. There are allot of local and cheap eateries nearby, heaps of 7-11's within 2 minute walk, there must be a 7-11 on every corner. Strangely I also purchased some disposable underwear in 7-11 never seen that before. Location of hotel is perfect, and well worth staying here if you ever visit, very clean and very modern.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view, buffet breakfast is brilliant.

We were in Kaohsiung as part of an American-Taiwan wedding party. Overall this was a very pleasant place to stay for people who know only a few words of Chinese.

The customer service was excellent. Concierge and check-in/check-out services were very good. When I had trouble with the free Wi-Fi, Max helped me obtain an in-room access point, which met my needs. The location and view of the city was excellent from our room on the 60th floor. There were retail stores on the first floor and many on the street nearby, including the ubiquitous Seven Eleven. Free fruit in the room, and always extreme courtesy.

My dislikes were minor:
• It does not appear to be that old, but our bathroom could have used some updates.
• There was no way to eat breakfast or lunch a la carte (had to use room service), and the buffet, though it looked to be of excellent quality, exceeded our breakfast preferences and was too expensive for coffee and toast only.
• The lobby is on the 39th floor, which means two elevators to your room, though this was not really that bad unless you are in a hurry or really tired.

The rooms at the Splendour Hotel are clean and modern with great views. I especially enjoyed the electronic toilet!!
When we first checked in we were put in a room a few doors down from the high speed elevators and had to complain about the noise, which sounded like a jet plane scraping the roof every 20 seconds. The response was excellent though... Within 5 minutes a porter arrived to move us into a room on the other side of the building where we couldn't hear the lift at all.
The buffet style dinner and breakfast in the hotel was 1st class with a massive selection of quality food to choose from.
Would definitely recommend but always request a room away from the elevators!
