85 Sky Tower Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed here for 3 nights while on business trip and visiting supplier. The overall experience is from the late evening arrival times and the early morning breakfast. I did not experience the hotel facilities, as there are several on site. This is a large hotel with Lobby on 30-something-floor. To get there is a little bit of Labyrint of walking and elevators. Also the elevator-plan to the rooms is something little to study before to understand and do it by nature... Rooms are spacious, with my three requirements fulfilling my minimum standard of Sleeping quality, internet-speed and assorted breakfast . TV channels however not so widely choice international channels/HBO etc.
The first time I stayed in this hotel is around 2001. The hotel back in early 2000, the overall experience was excellent. The service is good. Hotel was clean and there were many TV channels to select. In one word, I will come back again. However, things are totally different in my second stay. The first thing I notice when I entered the hotel is the smell is not good. Poor air circulation. I think the internal structure are all blocked by glasses that makes the air circulation poor. The room are not clean compared to my first stay. I felt the skin itching when on bed. Too many China TV channels. TV channels were not stable. The coffee maker is locked under the TV cabinet. It is inconvenient. It has fitness center and swimming pool but open to public. So, it makes the pool crowded because the pool is already small. But it is close to the famous library. Within walking distance.
This is an excellent five star property. The hotel lobby is on the 39th Floor. The hotel location is very good, near to several places like Kaohsiung exhibition centre, tram station, harbour, malls, shopping area etc. The room is neat and clean and also the wash rooms. The room size is good. In order to reach your room you would have to take 2 lifts. The first lift would take you from ground floor to the 39th floor (lobby of the hotel) and from there you need to change the lift to go to the room. Both the lifts are of very good speed and the entire system works very efficiently. The breakfast was very good both in terms of quality and the variety. The only disappointment I had with the hotel was the staff at the reception was not cooperative at all particularly the female staff. Both the female staff at the time of check in (the young girl and the other one, slightly elderly wearing a mask and I assume she was the senior or the boss had an attitude which one would normally not expect at such a good hotel).
The rooms are very spacious. The views are stunning. Staff is very polite and helpful. The breakfast selection is overwhelming and very tasty. The elevator situation is bit strange, since you not only need to change elevators to get to your room but also need to walk once around half a floor to reach the right elevator. The rooms are overall very clean. Unfortunately, I dropped my phone and had to move one of the sideboards where I found a pile of old trash. Unacceptable....
I needed to stay in Kaohsiung in order to catch and early morning flight on the following day and this hotel was a great place to chill and relax. It's only a short walk away from the riverside and plenty of local street food - plenty of options for dinner. The rooms were very well appointed and the bed was really comfortable - sure the furniture may be a few years old, but the wifi and TV was all up to date. If you are interested in modern architecture, there are many interesting buildings in Koahsiung - the library that is across the road from this hotel is very futuristic and welcoming - if only every city in th world had such an amazing space to study....
I stay at this place while attending our organization's annual event. Rooms are very comfortable and relieved. Some public facilities are also fun. There is a smoking room, important for me who still have bad habits, smoking.
I've been there already several times and usually for Business (but also private) and i really enjoy to stay in this outstanding Hotel. The Lobby is somewhere in Floor 39 and from there upwards the Hotel starts. The breakfast is located in a unique room with Sea view window, really something special. Be careful while booking as there are big price differences btw. the travel agents as well as direct booking.
The hotel is located in the highest building in Kaohsiung, so I have a great view of the harbour and city. It is dated and the design and layout seems to be from an earlier era. Otherwise no complaints.
I arrived by taxi and booked in OK. The reservation was clear and I was booked in for 4 nights. However, due to a change in business appointments, I had to book out after 3 nights but still had to pay for the full 4 nights. Considering that the hotel appeared to be fairly empty of guests, I think that a bit of leniency would have been more appropriate.
The hotel is designed interestingly. Some say it's a Chinese character means tall or high, though I'm not Chinese. The hotel is probably the tallest building in Kaohsiung, so you can spot it everywhere, hard to get lost. I was lucky in the high floor, so the room comes with the spectacular ship of the bay and the city. The room is decorated very luxury. Since the lobby is on 39th floor, so guests have to use two sets of elevator. The roof top is available for observatory of the city, but with fee. I also enjoy the fitness center, which is very large and fully equipped. Lap pool is available for guest. I mentioned the location is great because it was right next to the Convention center in walk able distance, where I have meeting. Many spots of tourist attraction is nearby such as, at night you can go to Liuhe night market for just one MRT stop, You can go shopping at Dream mall for two tram stops, or for domestic shopping to IKEA or Carrefour. Surrounded area of the hotel is decorated with street side food vendors. You can enjoy the great cultural experience, along with fancy hotel. Last thing to mention, I found that the breakfast buffet at the hotel is mediocre, with not many interesting selections. I'd rather enjoy local street food in some other meal.
