I stayed here for three night for business. The hotel is just good. Although the rooms are a little small, for a business trip or any short stay in Kaohsiung, the hotel has everything you need. A few things that could be improved are the minibar; pretty empty, the key system; on old fashion key with heavy hanger...it takes up some pocket space when you're out and about. The walls and cealing aren't thick either so it can be a little noisy. Its location is perfect, next to the Love river with some nice restaurants and bars in walking distance. The best place to have a relaxed and goood dinner or have a few beers is Tokyo Akasa (?) walk out of the hotel, cross the street and follow the river. Left of the bridge you will find a three story open restaurant. Great food, a good fibe and nothing formal. Do watch the beer girls as they want to sell you the more expensive beers. Aks for the smaller menu, although not in English and order the sushi. One thing though, they only accept cash.
