Reviewed July 31, 2012

Booked two rooms for four as I was travelling with a group of friends. Staff was very courteous and professional at check-in/check-out and throughout the stay. We all liked that the hotel was relatively new with modern decor. Rooms are not large but more than enough for five teenage girls in a room without feeling crowded. There was a tiny window in the room facing a wall so there was essentially no view to talk about. Wifi was okay but at times not strong enough. Requested the iron and ironing board by phone and promptly delivered to room by a service lady though without a smile. Breakfast was not sumptuous but more than sufficient to freshen one up with a fair selection of Western and Chinese food, fresh fruit, etc. A short walk to MRT station makes everywhere so easily accessed. Overall a very nice stay and satisfactory with regard to the price.

This hotel is located like 90sec walk from Sinyi Elementary School station (MRT)'s exit 4. Basically you get out, walk 50m straight then turn right and within 50m you will see it.

The staff were helpful and very friendly. Breakfast was provided with the room I booked but I wasn't having high hopes as it was really cheap but it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise! It has nice coffee (proper espresso machine with multiple functions), western and asian selection of food and juice etc. Good start of the day!

The room was small, it has all the basic utilities like kettle, hair dryer and some amenities (not all there but you can request it from reception). The shower was okay but water pressure was slightly weak. Also the bed was very hard and the walls/doors are thin - we were unlucky to have a noisy family across from us who talked loudly outside their room at mid-night!

Basically there's no view in my room (mine was overlooking apartment blocks).

There's free wifi in the hotel and it has two computer at lobby for guests to use, it's very fast and not many people utilize this service while I was there. Hotel staff were very friendly and polite. They are also super helpful and genuine.

Overall it's very good value but if you are planning a romantic holiday, this might not be the place.

Room Tip: Get a room facing inside street instead of the main street would be quieter.

Near to metro which is easy to use so simple to get to High Speed rail or Airport.
Modern, clean, internet, good restaurant and very friendly.

Could not ask for much more.... and reasonably priced

Pretty nice hotel in Kaohsiung. Suitable for business travellers. A little out of the way but beds were soft and comfy. Breakfast spread was pretty ok.

Just back from Kaoshiung,Taiwan, with comfortable experience in Urban Hotel 33, really out of our expectation. Please read our sharing below:-

Like :
1. 40 mins from Airport by MRT, drop at Sinyi Elementary School (O6), Exit 4 (5 mins walk)
2. Clean and quiet room at Elegance Tower, efficient housekeeping service everyday
3. Excellent breakfast, can't ask more, Chinese, Japanese, Western style...fresh coffee..etc.
4. Modern interior renovation at Urban Cafe
5. Free Wire & Wireless internet connection in room
6. Professional Front Desk Crew, special thanks to Ms. Lily Kim. Smiling face every morning.
Speaking good English & Japanese....so cool
7. Self Launary Service at 5/F, convenient
8. Accessable to shopping areas
9. Very suitable for the business trip + few days leisure break.

Dislike :
1. Please do not expect it is a luxury hotel, no gym, no swimming pool, no grand lobby.
2. Not suitable for family vacation.

We will definitely stay again in our next trip to Kaoshiung.

We stayed two nights and our room was super clean, very modern and hip! Breakfast was the best -- a mixture of chinese and some light american fare, plus yummy lattes. Bed was very, very firm. Good location on the orange line if you're visiting family in the area otherwise you might want to stay on the red line which has more tourist stuff and connects to the High Speed Rail - however, train and underground transportation in Taiwan is very efficient, speedy and on time so it really doesn't matter. We would stay again.

Our family enjoyed our stay in this hotel. We booked 2 regular rooms (forgot what they're called) but each is about 3-4k NTD each.

What I liked:

- Love the morning buffet spread! I really get a full tummy as the food choices suites me (compared to the food in Dandy). There's rice, boiled or tea egg, bacon, ham, bread, etc. Really good I would say.
- Location is great - less than 3 mins walk to MTR (upon exiting hotel, take 2 lefts)
- Good customer service
- Spacious rooms
- plenty of taxis passing by in front of hotel


Areas for improvement:

- Bathroom lighting not OK. Once you close the shower curtains, it gets dim in the shower area.
- No indoor safe
- we find wifi speed kind of slow
