Hotel Sunshine

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in Hotel Sunshine for 2 nights during our leisure trip in Kaohsiung. We arrived the hotel at around 11:00 am and the front desk staff handled our check-in very efficiently. The room is big and clean. The decoration is not as modern as some fancy hotels, but I can say it's classy. I will definitely stay in this hotel again next time when visiting Kaohsiung.

Tried to find a hotel near Sky 85 Tower and while communicating with Hotel Sunshine before booking, they replied handicap chair for shower use and complimentary wheelchair for guest's use outside of the hotel were available. As these were things I was looking for, I gladly reserved a twin room there. Taxi ride from airport was only 15 minutes and not expensive. At checked-in, the receptionist said wheelchair was only for use inside the hotel. When I showed her the reply, they were flexible enough to let us use the wheelchair during our stay. The room size was average and furniture was rather old fashioned. They gave us a handicap room with 2 handicap chairs for shower use. Wifi reception was sometimes on and off. Number of sockets wasn't enough and locations very odd. One right under the TV where there was no table and another one above a very refrigerator on the floor. There were a few overseas TV channels. One thing didn't make sense was that the table light was linked to the bedroom light. One cannot work at the table without lighting up the whole room. Breakfast was ok except the limited choice of bread and poor orange juices. There were two kinds of congee but were not refilled from around 9:30 a.m. although they were empty already. Location of the hotel was just two streets away from Dayuanbai, Sogo and Mitsukoshi Department Stores.

This was our second time staying at Hotel Sunshine and this time we booked the executive room. This hotel is conveniently located from one of the most important shopping districts in Kaohsiung, Sandou Shopping district. It is only a 5-minute walk to the Sandou Shopping District MRT station on the red line. The hotel staff was friendly and professional. Every time we entered the hotel, the front desk staff would get up from their seats to say hello. The room itself was clean and spacious with all the amenities we needed including hairdryer, slippers, soap with shower gel and shampoo from a dispenser on the wall. Everyday, two water bottles are replenished. The decor of the room goes for “old times in Taiwan” which is unique. There are three restaurants at the hotel. The breakfast buffet was included with various Taiwanese type of breakfast and a smaller selection for western tastes. The price was also very attractive for the quality of service we received. This will still be my first choice for hotel the next time I travel to Kaohsiung.

Hotel location is quite ok, still within walking distance to train station station, mall and small night market not too far. Room is quite spacious, laundry is FOC (Which is amazing and the best). Will be back next time we are in town.

Booked executive room last minute. Great price. Lovely room with harbour view. Everything worked, everything clean. Decent breakfast. Staff friendly and desk staff could speak english. Room furnished beautifully.

This is my second stay thru Cathay Pacific holiday (last stay in Nov 2016). Frankly, I selected again mostly because of the nice room and the good location. We arrived before noon on Saturday and asked for early check in if possible. And got a room by 2.30 pm , normal check in time is 3. Disappointed when we stepped in the y The next day, we got changed to another room, bigger and with three chairs, but one of them has a loosened armrest, let alone dust found quite easily on furniture. Housekeeping to be improved! Anyway, we thought we settled down. 3rd day: returning after lunch to find the wifi was not working. Was told their engineer was trying to sort it out. But nothing happened. So requested to change room again which actually not what I like if don't have to. IWith the help of Miss Kelly, we got a room in tower 2. We got a lovely room on the last night of our stay. And that was the same type of room we stayed last time in Nov. Here is what we don't understand. We purchased the same package thru Cathay, deluxe room, as in Nov. And not sure if we were put in the proper type of room inthe first 2 nights. Being misled? Not a very happy experience this time. But I commend Miss Kelly in the front desk who tried best to make my stay happier. Thank you Miss Kelly.

Good hotel with good service. Location reasonably good about 10 mins walk from mrt. Centrally located in kaoshiong. Recommended for couples and families or people who drives. Breakfast is not very good unfortunately.

Large hotel with good size rooms and king size bed. Very comfortable. Located close to the river and 2 stops on the metro from city centre and night markets. Breakfast ok. Plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby.

10min walk from nearest metro. It's located near FE21. SOGO. 7/11 lobby service is great. Room quality too. Their toilet bowl has the automatic washing system. The room is wide with great scenery. Highly recommended.

Pro: Friendly staff, clean and spacious room. A huge gym, provide washing machine and dryer(FOC) at level 17. Bus 205 just in front of hotel that able to reach Koashiung Public Library, Ikea, Carrefour and Dream Mall. A small night market and morning market just round the corner. Walking distant to Mrt Sanduo shopping district, Sogo and FE21 Mega Mall . Cons: The water heater was too hot even adjusted to the lowest. The step from bathroom to bedroom is a bit high, not every staff in the hotel able to speak English. Directions:- take Mrt to Sanduo Shopping District (Red line R8). Use Exit 1 to 85 Sky Tower. Contiune to walk pass the open parking space. Sogo is on your right. Turn left go towards Steak House Pai Pai zan. There is a 7-11 same row with the steak House at the end. Sunshine Hotel is diagonal opposite 7-11 and same row with Bank of Taiwan.

No.75, Jhonghua 4th Rd. Kaohsiung
