We stayed here for two nights. The hotel was part of the tallest building in Kaoshiung, the 85 Skytower. The hotel was also called 85 Sky Tower Hotel. The hotel lobby was on the 39th floor and we stayed on the 64th floor with a city view. The hotel was about 7 minutes walk from the Metro station Sanduo Shopping District Station.
The hotel room was general clean, even tough the carpet looked like a bit aged. Very big size room, with all the room amenities of a 4-5 star hotel. Drinks in mini fridge were all free. Fruit basket was provided during our two day stay. Free wifi and wired internet in the room. Very good speed connection. The bed mattress was firm and very good. A/C unit was fairly quiet. Shower room, toilet, and sink were all separate and therefore there was no need to fight for use of facilities.
Very helpful and friendly staff both in the first floor who directs customers to the 39th lobby and in the lobby.
Kaoshiung was a fairly small city. The subway system was very small 2-line system and easy to use.
We recommend this hotel for first timer to Kaoshiung, but won't mind to try some other hotels in the area.
