As the title states, this hotel is clean and has friendly staff. Great location for shopping any of the various department stores in the block. I have stayed in the R8 Eco hotel on 4 different occasions and it's always been a pleasure. I did get a room that had been smoked in, however the staff happily moved me into... More

Great location close to night market and shopping malls, as well as R8 MRt station. Rooms are okay, but pretty disappointed because the hotel is located in the upper floors of an old building with small elevators and no lobby at all.

Price friendly, small rooms, sufficient facilities for the price. This boutique hotel is not easy to find, even though it is located at a convenient location. The hotel is on the top floor of a building and if you miss the neon signboard on the upper floors, you will miss it. Food wise, no issue at night because there is... More

It was fantastic. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Initially while reading up on Kaohsiung, we thought there wasn't much to do, but upon arrival and speaking with the staff, there was so much shopping to do in KaoHsiung, and much sight-seeing! We wanted to stay 1 more day in Kaohsiung, but our taipei hotel did not allow cancellations.... More
