This hotel offers excellent service for backpackers like us, with hospitable and knowledgeable receptionist at the counter greeting every guest, free limousine service to and from Kaohsiung MRT station. The room is spacious and impeccably clean. I d recommend it with another visit in future.

I stayed in Kaohsiung for one day, but I forgot to reserve hotel room first... I unintentionally found this hotel around the Kaohsiung train station. It was pretty late, but I got lucked out. They are really nice to me and they have the best service I've never seen, no to exaggerate, their service is legit awesome.

I googled and booked this hotel based on the pricing and distance from our bridal shop, however, this happened to be my best research on Taiwan's hotels so far :D Being a budget traveler together with my husband, this hotel offers us not only coziness but also full of satisfaction. A good variety of breakfast selection is one of the... More

Location is not exactly convenient, at least they provided shuttle to the Train/ MRT station. Bicycles are provided free to guest. Lobby decor is modern but the room.. is out of sync. The room is very big. It appeared clean.. until I saw a scotch-tape with hairs still stuck to it on the supposedly newly replaced towel the following night.... More

The location is convenient, price is very good, the room is clean and big. I like the breakfast buffet, it is limit served but rich enough . The only bad things to me are no bathtub and room decoration too simple.

The room is well tidy and really concern with the guest. The surprising that Front Office agent really double confirm for higher floor and near the lift which no need me to request or reminding them which is a good image for me and my friend whom stay with me. Overall for the stay is good and up to standard.

This boutique hotel offers clean rooms and good service. Aside from the basics such as free wifi and breakfast, it offers free bike rental and free shuttle to the Kaohsiung railway station, where you can also take the metro and the bus to Kenting. It's right next to a 7-Eleven which means no problem for getting late night nibbles. A... More

The price is very good and the rooms are clean and newly furnished. The location is a bit out of the way so taking taxi may be more costly. The hotel offers free shuttle service (every 30 min) to the train and metro stations but you have to stick to the timing. The Chinese name is 河堤美學商旅九如館 if you wish... More
