I stayed here for three night for business. The hotel is just good. Although the rooms are a little small, for a business trip or any short stay in Kaohsiung, the hotel has everything you need. A few things that could be improved are the minibar; pretty empty, the key system; on old fashion key with heavy hanger...it takes up...

Stayed there with my family to attend a wedding. The room was comfortable and clean and staffs friendly. Our request for an ironing board and extra mineral water were responded to within 3 min. Great experience will definitely come back and stay again.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April/May 2012. I paid for the executive floor room which I am glad I did. The room has a big king size bed, a couch, view of the Love River, big bath, shower and lots of cupboard to store your items. The hotel has more chinese/local guests than international guests.

Upon arrival I was pleased to see an impressive front facade, and lobby, worthy of any 5 star hotel however I was soon to discover this was purely what it was - a facade.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I like the free shuttle bus service from the airport to the hotel very much since I ordered the package through CX holidays.

I did not enjoy this hotel at all. The room was small, but pretty enough.... this was not the problem though. The BIG problem was trying to explain something to the hotel staff in english was almost impossible, very very difficult to communicate with the hotel staff.

We used this as our base when visiting family working in Taiwan. It is fairly central although quite a walk from the nearest MRT station (City Hall) if you are there in the summer. It is close to one of the main restaurant and bar areas (just over the Love River in the old city) and to the riverboat pier....

The ourside of the building is fairly impressive, giiving you the impression that it might be 5 star, but on the inside it is no more than 2 star in facilities. I spent two nights there in different rooms. I did get a fairly good sleep, but the first room had a faint pungent smell from the carpet, at least...

Sitting at the Love River bank, also known as "Taiwan's La Seine", the excellent geographic environment allows our guests to experience the stunning riverside scenery up-close whether they want to take a walk on the hydrophilic trails on either side of the Love River, sit at a relaxing open-air cafe, appreciate the dazzling lightscribe bridge or take a river tour on the Love Boat and experience the true romance of this waterfront city. Inside the hotel a spacious lobby greets our guests with a high ceiling, a corridor with a gold dome, and gorgeous classical artworks. Entering our hotel, you enter a world blending cultural and historical characteristics, creating a unique style of new European classicism, and combining the best of Chinese and Western hospitality into a cultural exchange.
