“A Nice Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

The hotel is nice and clean. My room was more than spacious for 1, but only 1 chair. My only real issues are there are no plug outlets anywhere but under the desk to plug in any computer or phone, this is a pain in the knees. Otherwise the pineapple bread was great and breakfast is good.

Room Tip: Ask to face the river.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Was good, staff understand and offer solutions fast and easy.
Have no chance to try out facilities. Wifi was easy and fast.
Accessibility isn't great, need to walk to the nearest train station, but taxi was considerably cheap.
Food is scarce at the area, there's a drinking area and cafe opposite the hotel.
Nearby Love River, hence good for a stroll before bed time.
Breakfast is good for a 2/3 days stay. Anything longer than that makes the breakfast really, seriously boring...

The Ambassador hotel in Kaohsiung is a very nice hotel and has a great location.
Unfortunately the front desk staff was not very friendly.
The room was good & comfortable, but lacked amenities for the price paid.
Lounge and bar prices are far above average rate. But in contrast the western & eastern style breakfast was far above standard.

The hotel is good, centrally located, with a nice view of the river. It's easy to walk around, if one is lucky enough to avoid robbers (there are more robbers in Kaohsiung than in other cities in Taiwan). One major complaint is about the Sichuan Restaurant on the top of the hotel: the food they serve is not authentic. We ordered smoked cod but it turned out deep-fried. When we complained about it, the manager said it's deep-fried first and then smoked. It's simply not true. I hope the chef and manager there should be honest and stop telling customers that they serve smoked fish. We visited this restaurant before; the quality of their food used to be very good. What a pity that its quality is going down the drain!

I stayed in this hotel in early May during Golden Week (a Japanese holiday-I happen to live in Japan now) .I found the staff helpful and always cheerful.My room was always made up and cleaned nicely.It is about ten minutes walk from some excellent stores and places to eat.
When I return to Taiwan I will most likely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room ovelooking the Love river and away from the elevator

I visited Kaohsiung for a business meeting for 2 days and chose to stay in Ambassador Hotel. I must say that my decision was quite good. It was an excellent hotel with the excellent staff. The check-in procedure done here was one of the fastest i have ever observed anywhere else. Location wise it is bang on the love river. The staff is courteous but caution..Very few people speak English...So be prepared.

All in all, a good place to live while on business/leisure trip.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the love river.

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.
