Urban Hotel 33

Reviewed October 6, 2011

There is 3 mins walk from MTR station named "Sinyi Elementary School" exit no. 4. Just walk straight (there is a hospital at the right side) and then turn right at the end of the street, we can see the hotel in front of 30 metres.

In the surrounding of hotel, there are some localized restaurants for breakfast. The taste is ok. I also tried 1 western restaurant for breakfast, which located in the opposite side of the hotel and it named "布魯日" (Brugge). The taste is good and price is reasonable. Besides, there is 1 pub in the opposite of the cross road, we tried to have a "pre-dinner" and the dishes are delicious.

The hotel staff are nice & helpful. We can find smile on their faces always. For the room, we choose budget twin and we think that the space is enough and very clean. The bed is so comfortable and gives me a good sleep too.

Room Tip: corner rooms have 1 more window to view the street scenery

Since we saw the rating was very good in general, and we just wanted to have good night sleep before leaving for Taipei, we booked this hotel online. When we arrive, the staff was helpful to lead us to the secondary parking lot. The beddings are clean, the shower has strong hot water, however, the smell in the room makes us think twice of booking this hotel again, unless the hotel can guarantee the room is really 'non smoking'.

We stayed here early June of 2011. The rooms were spacious and clean. I am particular with the cleanliness of bed sheets, pillow cases and blankets/comforters and I can say that Urban Hotel 33 definitely passed my standards. The room temperature is great too. There's complimentary water replenished everyday. There's no wifi in the room but there's cable. Wireless internet is available only in common areas. They also have a small business center where you can print last minute documents.

There's also a nearby MRT station so it's very convenient for those who want to save on transportation. BTW, the Kaohsiung line is very simple. Maximize the train. Taxicabs are so expensive compared to MRT. Flat rate starts at 80NTD and progresses like crazy.

One thing I love about this hotel is their breakfast. There's a wide variety of choices of American, European and Asian food and the restaurant crew are very efficient and professional too.

Although the receptionists need more skills in speaking English, they're nevertheless accommodating and friendly. There's a good restaurant too near the hotel selling traditional noodles. Must try too.

It's only a one-minute walk from Sinyi Elementary School Station of the Rapid Transit System. Very convenient. You can get there within 30 minutes from the airport. It's also only 1-3 stations from the Liouhe night market and major shopping areas. I stayed at a business single room with my wife in the Chic Section. Furniture is modern and the washroom is spacious. Never have to wait for long for the lifts. The staff is nice and helpful. There is free internet connection in the rooms and the LAN wire is provided. You can find a convenient store on the main road.

Nice clean hotel situated just situated off the main road in Kaohsiung. From the outside, it looks very grand and modern. The staff are friendly at reception and speak decent english as well. The lobby has free internet use, with memory card readers attached. There is also free cable internet in the rooms. The lifts to the above rooms are very small, and you really struggle to fit more than 4 people with luggage inside.

The rooms are quite small, but at the same time cosy and clean. The bathroom is clean, but has shower curtains (not a big fan of shower curtains). The TV in the room was not too great, but it worked. There is a small bar fridge and free bottled water is provided in the room.

The location of the hotel is close to a subway station which is great, and from there you can catch the train to Kaohsiung Night markets. Good for those people that are planning to get married as its very close to Marriage Street. Breakfast is OK, there is quite a big selection, both chinese and western style.

Overall, nice hotel and very comfortable. Good service and friendly staff. Would recommend to everyone, and I would stay again if I return to Kaohsiung.
