“Excellent Location but very small room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This hotel is very close to Kaohsiung Station (~5 minute walk) with excellent access to trains, MRT, taxis or buses. Staff greets you every time they see you. There is however only 1 small lift in the hotel and you could wait a long time for one. The room is clean, but very small and we could barely move within our room.

There are free drinks (juice, tea or coffee), ice-cream, popcorn, laundry (washer & dryer) and PC with internet access offered 24/7. Breakfast is above average with good choice of hot food, steamed buns or toast/bread.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The location of the hotel is excellently located via a 3-5 min walk from Kaohsiung main train station and metro. The service is one which you could not find fault with. Breakfast was adequate with a decent variety of food for the price paid. Room was clean but I find it way too small to even put our luggages. Despite the efficient design, it felt very squeezy. However, for those looking for value, I would still recommend this hotel

This is my first time travelling to Kaohsiung so I was looking for a hotel near to train station and hope to reach the tourist spots easily. The location of Kindness Hotel (Kaohsiung Main Station Front) is really excellent! You may walk to the bus station and Kaohsiung train station within 5 mins, it is very convenient for us to travel around!

We have reserved a Standard double bed room which is clean and in good condition but rather small. However the overall service is awesome - the staff are polite and helpful, self-laundry service is provided, food choice of breakfast is various and taste good. And the service I like most is - free snack and beverages are provided at the dining area for whole day!! You can enjoy ice cream, pop corn, coffee, juices, tea whenever you want! This is really surprising.

I think if the room key can be changed to smart card and the dining area can be bigger (you need to queue outside the area when it is full), this hotel is perfect!

The name of the hotel is very appropriated, all staff are very caring and genuinely helping you for everything.
The hotel is not big but just located @ 5min walking distance from the Kaohsiung train station and the MRT station.
Rooms are very clean (no carpet floor, ideal for allergic people), bathroom is big and clean as well, we had quad-rooms and children had enough space to play, teenagers 'll love the business center with free computers to browse the internet (or free WIFI in room) while younger children can enjoy huge choice of free ice creams, pop-corn, buns, etc throughout the afternoon.. better under adult surveillance to avoid excesses..
For children's sake, alcohol is banned from the cafeteria and there is no bar (you have a big fridge in the room)
Free laundry machines in the back are very convenient
Choices at breakfast are quite broad (western and chinese food) but don't laze in bed because the cafeteria is quickly full and you 'll have to wait your turn
Really a clean cute hotel with a very convenient location and a great value for money !

Room Tip: higher floor = better view (above neighborhood's buildings but...patience is the price .. (few l...

This hotel is located in the 'old' city area, and its quite a distance to the 'new' city area...
there is not much to see around here and if you walk around at night you are often annoyed by old guys on motorbikes asking if you want a ''certain'' type of girl...i was personally asked 4 times in one short walk.
There is a MRT located just 2 minutes walk up the road which gets you into the city or you can take a bus but personally id much rather just stay in the main new city area.
The hotel room itself is very clean and nice but pretty tiny...hardly room to open up your bag..
