“Great place + Nice pineapple cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Very nice place for our travel. While we requested a rollaway bed, it somehow got converted or delivered as a baby bed. We didn't bother to complain about since the pineapple cakes were so good it outweighed the negatives. Very nice place and location was well-suited for my spouse's 1k running loop outside. The dinner was fantastic also.

I stayed here many years ago and was pleased to find the same high standard of service. The rooms are well equipped, clean and very comfortable. The new flat screen TV's have demand films as well as BBC news.
The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food for all tastes. In addition the staff were attentive and very helpful.
Highly recommended if you are lucky enough to be visiting Kaohsiung.

From the time you get out of the taxi - they make it totally enjoyable experience. From late check-outs, dinner & the quality of food on the 22nd Floor is just superb, to organising massages, meeting rooms or holding luggage nothing is an effort - it is worth 5+ STARS . Easily one of the best views in town when you finish the day with a cold beer on 22nd floor. When comparing to other hotels.... just try this one first & you won't need to go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Business floor are 15th & 16th - less noise with tourists arriving up to 11-12PM at night.

We stayed one night and I wished we had more time to stay! The hotel was very lovely, clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke English. We ate at the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and the food was delicious. It is located right on the Love River and is about 4 blocks from the KRT station. We took a taxi from the train station and it cost only about $6 US. The breakfast was a buffet like I've never seen. Two long tables of food, plus one of fruit, one with bread and pastries, a center table of liquid soups, plus an omelet station. I think it would not matter what nationality you are, you could find plenty to eat and plenty of new dishes to try.

Located on the Love River - great location, can walk to shopping, restaurants, KRT subway. Riverside pedestrian walkways great for strolling and enjoying all the activities along the river. Helpful, friendly staff. Very nice dining room overlooking pool area, good breakfast buffet. Great views from top floor lounge and bar. Tastefully furnished room, elegant bathroom. Top notch international style hotel. Have stayed in other hotels in Kaohsiung, would make this my first choice.

A lovely hotel along the banks of the Love River. Had a room on the 14th floor overlooking the river. Lovely view of the lights at night. The room was spacious and clean. The beds very comfortable. The closest station is Council City, about a 10 minute walk. Taxis are relatively cheap depending on your budget. Breakfast offered both Asian and Western food.
