Even if Icon is not the best hotel in Kaohsiung, it is certainly the one with the best design. All the rooms come with a different theme and the entire building breathes creativity.
We stayed in the "computer" room which has a motherboard ceiling and a wall decorated with keyboards. The room is on the 8/F and offers a good view of the city. The atmosphere is cozy and warm.
Breakfast comes in a set and is nothing like the normal boring selection of cornflakes, toast and ham. You can feel that these people paid extra effort to make your stay enjoyable.
Another thing I appreciate is the free bike rental, which allowed me to explore the city at ease. Even if you walk, it's just 5 min away from the Central Park station and about 10 min from Formosa Boulevard Station and the famous Liuhe Night Market.

- With a natural and seemingly accidental presence The Icon Hotel is situated in a corner of the popular XinJueJiang Shopping District. Adjacent to the ever so elegant Central Park metro station, and across the tree-canopy-clad Minsheng Rd., is a simply classic structure full of creative twists.We chose white as our foundation and embellished it with vibrant brushstrokes. Through the creative efforts of numerous artists from around the globe, beyond language and cultural barriers, boundless imagination is materialized in 36 dimensions.Humorous originality frolics in every corner of the hotel as we hope that at every turn of the corner you might let out an occasional chuckle. The Icon is creativity, it is art, and it is a lifestyle. With a humble and low-key attitude we have shattered the traditional impressions of motels, inns, and hotels. Here at The Icon we have orchestrated a visually and aesthetically pleasing feast.The Icon creativityUniquely craftedWe are The Icon! ... more less
