    aged 5 star hotel but”

    Howard Plaza Hotel is in a shopping mall. The early morning staf(man)on Modnday wasn't helpful and spoke minimal English. I asked if this was Howard Hotel.and I was surprised that he didn't know the word HOWARD.I I asked if it was okay to check in and he tried to charge me extra fees without saying any words and only tapping on the calculator with a cold manner. .Becuase of him I thought  it was a mistake here and not foreigner friendly. Pros- lady staff spoke good English and let me check in early without any charge. Good clean pool and Jacuzzi. basic kiitchen facilities. Great cable TV. Great space, videt Cons-unfriendly morning staff at 8A.M. on Monday for checking in.All annuities except gowns, western food here tasted like Chinese, hasty and rude hasty busing lady staff at bf, B1 Massage service was pricy and bad. Sofa in the room not disinfected by steam cleaner.

    Very clean hotel, excellent breakfast ”

    Hotel and room are extremely clean. Had a awesome Japanese style breakfast on 30F, portion bigger than brunch. Only drawback staff could not find my booking at checking, took quite sometime. When found, they send me to another place for so called VIP check in, wasting more time. When I wanted was a room key asap.

    Gem in old downtown.”

    Location, pool open year-round, quiet.

    The Howard Plaza is centrally located with a great view of the city to the north and south. It's a quiet hotel in a relatively quiet part of town. There are plenty of restaurants (e.g., Chinese, Tex-Mex, Thai, Vietnamese) that are all within walking distance. One of the main reasons we chose this place was it was one of the few with a pool that is open year-round. Many hotels in Kaohsiung close their outdoor pool down for "the winter", despite the city being in the tropics. It actually hit 30 degrees Celsius at the end of December, while we were staying there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

    Spacious room, good location

    Overall a good experience except some "human touch" that often is the key to surprises. Missed the chance to book the breakfast-included deal but the hotel insisted on paying the full price for that instead of changing the deal. Not a big deal anyway.

    good stay and good food”

    big rooms, quiet and superb service

    The staffs were very helpful from the bell hoppers to the staffs at the counter. Check in was fast and they did their best to help make sure the rooms were ready for early check in. Rooms were big and spacious, because we got a free upgrade to a bigger room at higher floors. Breakfast was just ok, many cold condiments with porridge; i guess thats the living lifestyle of Taiwanese to have cold condiments to go with porridge. The bell hoppers did a great job explaining to me their map and pointed out a few tourist attractions worth to go. There is a food street nearby, takes around 10 minutes walk. A few 24 hrs convenient shops are nearby if there is an emergency.

    NICE & GOOD FOR VALUE STAY AT HOWARD PLAZA HOTEL”

    SPACIOUS, CLEAN & COMFORTABLE

    We were with our 1 year old who likes to crawl and tries to walk....the room was good just for that. The size of it was just great for us. Their large bed (king-size) was comfortable. Bathroom was superb and the hotel was very thoughtful as they had already put all the bathing equipments we would need for our baby before our check-in. Staff was extremely nice, polite, friendly and helpful. Ideal location, not far from shops and restaurants, most importantly the metro station which is about 10-15 mins by walking. Taxis are always around and waiting for you. I would definitely come back to this hotel.

    It was a pleasant experience to stay at Howard Plaza Hotel. The stass is very helpful and friendly and the location is great. However, in Kaohsiung, without renting a car, it is always easier to travel by taxi if you have a group of people to share the cost. I will be happy to stay at this hotel again.
