“Great view and nice service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Great location, a view of harbor that is outstanding, good service, very clean, not far from subway station, but it is still a hike if you have luggage with you, breakfast is good but I had better (needs more fruits and juice options). It is pricy but allow a whole family to stay in one room. Nice bathroom, with enough space for separation of toilet, shower, and tub. Gym is big, pool adequate.

The Splendor is a modern and lavish hotel in THE landmark building conveniently located in the heart of Kaohsiung City. Everything about this hotel is first class. Much has been noted about the incredible views, as all rooms are above the 42nd floor (ours was on the 66th), and all views are spectacular.

Rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. The double beds are king-sized and while the matresses are the hard style common in Asia, the hotel will happily and promptly supply you with a soft pad to increase your sleeping comfort.

The breakfast buffet, served in The Brasserie on the 39th floor (floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbor) is sumptuous, and includes both Asian and Western-style offerings. Lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner also are served there, but the property boasts six other restaurants as well.

Service is friendly and efficient. All staff go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. The doormen are especially helpful in direcing taxi drivers to your destinations as you leave the property. The 40th floor gym, sauna, and pool are in a health club available to local members. They are state-of-the-art, again with helpful staff always in attendance.

Our stay at this hotel was for nine days, and as "long-term guests" we were comped for a number of things, including use of the Executive Lounge and discounts on some of the hotel's services. That wasn't necessary, but much appreciated and typical of the hotel's hospitality.

In all, I can't say enough good things about The Splendor, and I recommend it enthusiastically. It was one of the finest travel destinations in memory, and certainly enhanced our appreciation of this charming city.

Our first trip to Taiwan.....me and my wife joined a tour group staying 5 days (4 nights) visiting Kaohsiung, Taichung, Yilan and Taipei.
This hotel room was clean and roomy (70th Floor). Wonderful panoramic night and day city views (see photos). Beds were comfortable. Being so high up also mean the room was quiet and no outside noise pollution.
Air condition was quiet, effective and efficient
Stayed one night at the hotel.
Bathroom was lovely with separate toilet, shower unit and bathroom!
Buffet breakfast was fantastic. Western and Chinese buffet fully catered for.
Staff all friendly and helpful. We did not use the spa facilities in the hotel, but judging by the high standards of this hotel we think the quality would not be too far off the mark.
I would definitely stay at this hotel next time I am in Kaohsiung.

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.

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.
