“Unbelievably polite staffs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The staffs are always greeting and smiling. My friend do find it a bit irritating that they are excessively polite but I kind of enjoy it. The services are great and they are always ready to help. Thumbs up to that.

The rooms are clean, facilities are new but size is quite small. I don't understand why the room must have 2 doors - one main door, one glass door. I got a room without window but it was relatively bigger than the other standard room and it is rather obvious. Still, it was rather cramp, but hey, you can't beat the low price.

Breakfast buffet was quite good, nothing special just the standard stuffs. But lots of beverage to choose from, with different types of tea or juices.

Lastly, they loan bicycles for free (as long as you don't cycle too far), which is rather unique. But it is a good option to have if you want to get something from somewhere nearby but are too lazy to walk there.

Room Tip: If you want a bigger standard room, try asking for one with no window.

One of the better Hotel I have stay in and value for money.

Hotel is 5-10 mins walk from the Kaohsiung Main Station.
Very convenient as there are many buses just outside the hotel also. You just need to know which number to take.

The staff are very friendly and greet all customers whenever they go in and out of the hotel lobby.
However maybe they could be more helpful when finding more information for the customers.

Rooms are clean and bathroom have shower gel and shampoo differentiated for female and male (seldom do I see hotels doing this)

Breakfast is good and have a decent variety.

Hotel provide laundry room with free washing powder and softner. Free use of washing machine and dryers. There are free drinks, ice cream and popcorn in the hotel cafeteria.

Wifi speed is good and excellant coverage.

Definately worth the money and will stay there if I visit Kaohsiung again

An affordable hotel with superb service! Their staffs are very polite & friendly and their room service was great! They serve good buffet breakfast too (though you can’t compare them to the 4 or 5-star restaurants)!

To be honest, you may find their room slightly small in size but you should be happy about the cleanliness of their room. The room don’t look worn out and the air ventilation in the room and bathroom is good too.

It is very near to Kaohsiung Main Station (probably less than a 10-mins walk) and have some good shops around for you to do some impromptu shopping. KFCs, Mcdonalds, Yoshinoya and Subway are also conveniently located around the Hotel area!

I would recommend this hotel to those who wish to have fun in Kaohsiung and be welcomed back to the hotel with clean room and warm smiles from their staffs.

I would definitely re-visit this hotel again if I return for another holiday!

We stayed in Kindness Hotel during our Taiwan tour. We traveled to Kaohsiung by train. The hotel is very close to the main station. They were very kind to allow us to check in at 11am. The MRT station is beside the main station - thus we could do Lotus Lake on our own.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a good selection of pastries. While I was doing our laundry ( 4 washers and 4 dryers), they brought me a large bun with meat filling that tasted great - I already has a large lunch. The computers with large monitors all worked. There is complementary coffee, tea, juice, popcorn, ice-cream. Our room was very new and everything worked. Great value hotel.

Though not in city center, convenient to railroad and bus station, MRT too. Located one walking block along Jianguo Lu, reached by exiting the rear of the rail station, facing the bus station. The hotel is well maintained, sparkling clean. Breakfast is provided, nice eastern/western choices, well prepared, good variety. Refreshments and treats available in dining room all day and evening, and complimentary self serve laundry is located just off the dining room. Staff is welcoming and helpful, and some speak English. We booked a 'larger' room, which was small, just cozy, but not an inconvenience for 2 people. Bathroom with shower, fine. Some previous posts complained of the one elevator being a problem, but we never found it to be an issue. Booked on Agoda, and for the price, we found it a real value.

Very near to Kaohsiung Main Station just turn to right when exit from station walking distance less then 5 mins located corner of the shoplots ... when entering the hotel all stafts will give you greeting and mostly all the hotel stafts are male. FREE beverage and ice-cream at breakfast dining place. I called hotel directly make reservation and booked very basis room includes breakfast only TWD1400 which no deposit & credit card given. Room small but all the basic facilities provided and FREE wifi. Request for extra pillow and got it within 5 mins times. Good buffet breakfast. The only point need to improve is only one lift and hotel total have around 110 rooms. Will stay here again if I visit Kaohsiung in future.
