A relative in Taiwan helped us to book the room. It was her favorite hotel whenever she visited Kaohsiung. She liked the hair salon opposite the hotel and the local market place just behind the hotel. She was a frequent visitor and the hotel staff have also become her friends. Three of us stayed in a room with 2 double... More

The rooms are kinda of small for double. For triple, it is ok. Bathroom for both double and triple are very cramp. If you are a big american fellow, you will find difficulties to move around in the bathroom. There is a small night market near the hotel.

The Gear Hotel has everything you need - it's clean enough, they provided us with breakfast (albeit from McDonald's), and it's extremely cheap. It's also walking distance from the Love River which is great. However, it's located a little far from the city centre and the nearest metro station (Kaohsiung Main Station) is a 15-25 minute walk down the Jian... More

When i called the manager up to check, he was accusing us of brokening the flush! To this, I retorted " If you have checked the room thoroughly, why... More

Gear Hotel is located at quite a distance from Kaohsiung Train Station, Love River and Liuho Night Market. Average walking time is about 30 mins. Breakfast served can be improved further. Room amenities are okay. Only comments are on the location and breakfast.
