Stayed there earlier this week for a night as part of our honeymoon trip. It was a last minute decision to go there and we booked the Queen's room facing the Love River the night before we travelled to Kaohsiung.
There was a minor hiccup when we arrived to find that the check in counter did not have our details. Apparently, our booking the night before was not processed in time. We waited for about 20 minutes for our booking to be confirmed. It was a minor incident though.
The staff of the hotel was courteous and helpful, from the bell boy to the concierge to the staff at the restaurant.
The room was spacious and clean. I am very particular about the cleanliness of room and I have to say I was satisfied. The only thing lacking is a separate shower curtain. Care should be taken to prevent the splashing of water out of the bath tub while showering. Our room faces the Love River, which has a beautiful view of the river and the harbor, although rooms facing this direction will get the evening sun. Otherwise, the room is wonderful.
The spread of food for breakfast was standard but adequate.
An enjoyable stay.
