This hotel was pretty nice for a business trip. The lobby was lovely; the staff was kind, helpful, and spoke English well; the breakfast was delicious. There was some wear and tear visible in my room, but it was very clean, spacious, quiet, and well maintained, with a very comfy bed. I slept great despite the jet lag. The cleaning crew did a great job cleaning the room but not rearranging my stuff (which always irritates me). The temperature control in the room worked well, and the internet was reliable. My room view was disappointing -- a brick wall -- but the hotel has too towers that look like most of the rooms would have much better views. The gym was clean and the equipment was decent. Overall, a good value and great experience. Also, the Lihue Night Market was an easy walk for good, cheep dinner and something to do.
I had actually stayed at this hotel many years ago after a ferry trip from Yokohama. Was surprised to see a refurbished hotel. It was nostalgic for me to walk around the vicinity. Room is spacious. But the bright sunlight shone in when curtain is drawn. Would have like a sort of sunshade on the exterior. I was happy to be back even for a night after a long while.
The location of this hotel was excellent, because it was really close to the MRT. However, the hotel was a bit rough around the edges. The room had poor air circulation and when I turned on the AC it would smell like sewage. Please note that the tap water in Kaohsiung is not drinkable. It is very strange that they put glasses in the bathroom and no notes to guests that the water needs to be boiled before consumption or use. Some hotels and apartments have UV filters installed so tap water is drinkable or not, but when we asked Front Desk they laughed at us and said no. I felt that was unprofessional and notices should be posted for guests to prevent them from getting ill.
We stayed in this hotel for one night en route to Taichung.We were in a group tour. We were impressed with this accomodation. We are a couple but when we entered the room imagine our surprise we were given a room with 2 double beds and a single bed. Staff were friendly and breakfast was good. Very clean and comfortable room.
I wouldn't have guessed that this was an old hotel because of the very trendy interior design. I found out that this hotel has been around since 1957 and is actually the city's first international-class hotel. It was pleasantly surprising to see that it does not look old at all. Everything about the hotel was very new, 'current' and contemporary. The rooms were very similar to those you would find in smaller boutique hotels but the difference is that this hotel is actually quite big! it had all the necessities a modern flashpacker would need ( modern designs, paintings, practical) and equipped with the latest type of technology (free internet wifi in the room, Flat screen tv, dvd player, etc). the facilities were well maintained too. they had a few restaurants with good food and the business centre was free for guest use. (you can just walk in and turn on the computer and use the internet for free ). it was also within walking distance to the mrt station and very strategically located. a few of the main tourist spots in the city were not very far from the hotel if you took a cab. really nice hotel to stay at.
I had suspicion about this hotel before. But when I arrive, I saw hotel personals very kind and respectful. Rooms are very clear. Swimming pool absolutely nice. Receptions personals helpful. Hotel manager lady interested with us too much. Thank you for all personals.
Just 5 minutes walk to train station. There's a 7-11 just locate behind hotel. Really no much complain with the quality of staying. Some more there's laundry machine +d rying machine locate on basement.
The hotel is close to the subway but the area is filled with nothing except banks and official buildings. The rooms are originals but they seemed to have a lot of groups, mariage etc... got some noisy neighbours in the middle of the night half of my stay. The swimming pool looks great but no one is using it apparently and there is a gym too. The good thing is a laundry area and the staff is always ready to help.
This place is a perfect location for visiting Kaohsiung. Very close to Love River, night scene and market. On arrival we were greeted by every member of staff in the lobby and they went above and beyond to make me and my family feel welcome. The rooms were good sized, free wifi, decent shower and a large range on offer for breakfast. Every member of staff was so welcoming and you just don't see that sort of hospitality in the UK, it was a pleasant surprise. For the price I have no complaints. thank you Holiday Garden you're awesome!
Nicely decorated room in Blk A. Room decor is avant agarde with > 50mbps in room free wifi access. However if u are a early riser who craves for a morning run at the fitness centre, u would be disappointed as it opens only at 7am. Breakfast is basic fare with not much variety.
