“Well deserved number 1 spot”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Travelled to Kaoshiung from Taipei recently by taking a HSR. Get out at Zuoying and took a MRT train to Beuatiful island station. get out at number 6, and the Hotel is at the right from the traffic junction. The tall Hotel building's facade is contemporary and and in dark colours.

Entrance are big automated sliding orential designed doors.

Over the counter, service were excellent, prompt and extremely professional.

Corridors were spacious and new. Room was extremely large, clean, new and comfortable. Non-alcholic beverages are free (the only stock available). Room service for meals seems non-existent, a big minus.

The hotel however is not located in the central, and the night market is about 10 mins walk.

Nonetheless, they truly deserve the Number 1 spot.

I spent a night at Hotel Dua with my bf's family last weekend. The location is perfect with MRT station nearby. The hotel also provides free parking and wifi in room. Rooms are clean and quiet! We love the free beverages(4 cans: coke, 7-up, orange juice and wheat tea ) in refri! The breakfast is good as well combined with Asian and western food. We will definitely stay at this hotel next time!

Location is great and near a night market.
Downside of the place is we do not have the chinese name of the hotel, which is pretty hard to tell the cabby where to go to.
Walkway leading to room is ridiculously dark and creepy. Other than that, the room is really big and we love the decor, which is very cosy.
Definitely my choice to stay when I go to Kaohsiung again.

This could well be the best property to stay at in Kaohsiung. Access is not bad as it is within 10-min walk to Formosa Station of the subway, and within walking distance to Liuhe night market. Rooms are of good size and hip decor, and breakfast is served at the restaurant on the top floor, which enjoys an open view over the city. Breakfast though, was just so-so, and food actually runs out towards the end of the service. I also find service at this hotel particularly unimpressive. The place might be hip, but there is no heart to their service.

"Dua" is Taiwanese for "living". Found this hotel on Tripadvisor, and booked it on the hotel's own website, which has the best value. It has been fully operative since April 2012, and all facilities are new and well constructed, with very helpful staff. Basically a four star hotel without the concierge. Very conveniently located, very easily reached by MRT. I highly recommend this establishment. The room rates will certainly increase when the hotel is better known, probably from sometime this year, so if you happen to stop by in Kaohsiung, make sure to check out its website.

I stayed for two nights with my wife. This new hotel is just front of a metro station. The room is wide and clean. Bed and bathroom are well designed for couple. Breakfast is also satisfactory. Free coffee service is available every time in the ground floor. In conclusion, I am strongly recommend you to choose this hotel in your visit in kaohshiung.

Facilities of the hotel is very, very good - big room, fast in-room wifi, very nice breakfast buffet. The location cannot be any better, just steps away from Formosa Station, said to be the 2nd most beautiful subway station in the world. Staffs are friendly and ready to help. Only that it seems they don't have concierge or bell boys. You have to carry your luggage to your room yourself, which is fine for me - just wonder how come a decent hotel like this don't provide such standard service.

Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor, no view though
