    Good Value, Great Location ”

    This is a landmark hotel right on the Lover’s River. Very conveniently located. Walking distance to 7-11s, restaurants, pick-up/drop-off location of double decker tourist bus, and the light rail that transports you to key sightseeing spots along the shore/harbor; a short taxi ride to the subway station and Liuhe night market. We truly enjoyed the location. This hotel is a landmark hotel for many years, thus an older hotel, but it is kept up well. The staff is very friendly and helpful in general. The breakfast at the first-floor restaurant, however, was just okay, nothing spectacular for a four-star hotel. The menu/preparation/presentation of food can be much improved. Waiters/waitresses are uneven in their service—some are friendly, some not. Another area needs improvement to live up to the 4-star ranking.

    I stayed there with my mom. It was clean and had a good view. And it was a holiday(dragon boat day), so more exciting view to see the race of dragon boat in the hotel. They have a small swimming pool (free) and sauna(ntd 500) that family can enjoy there. I could not swim because of temporary raininning time. U can feel it is pretty far from MRT if it is too hot. But if it is fall or winter, just u can enjoy walking to go to the MRT station. Actually nearby this hotel on foot(within 20mins) i could see some famous places to look around. When i was looking for the breakfast, i was almost nearby Talee dep. We could go to many places like ikea, carrefour, dreammall, hansin dep., 85 building by taxi with just 85~100ntd and 290ntd for airport. Fuguangsan and dragon tower with my friends car so do not know how far from there but i can say Kaohsiung is small city. Many ppl can not speak english so it is better u make a note in Chinese the place u wanna go.

    Nice hotel at Kaosiung”

    I think hotel workers are very kind and well trained. Hotel is very closed to Love river and harbor. Room and bath room is very clean. Hotel has outdoor pool but it is not allowed to use when it rains due to safty issue so had no chance to use. However I enjoyed souna there and its facility is good. I found hotel has nice Sichuan restaurant at 20th floor and it is very delicious and gave 5% discout for hotel guest. Near hotel there are many pubs and restaurants and bike retal station is just near so convenient. If I have chance I want to stay same hotel again.

    we did a quick overnight trip to Kaohsiung from Taipei and stayed at the Ambassador hotel. It was a beautiful hotel with a great view of the Love River and Kaohsiung harbor. Nice breakfast buffet with full assortment of eastern and western foods. the hotel is across the street from the promenade along the Love River with shops, bars, restaurants and tour boat operators. Will certainly stay here again.

    Awesome stay! But not “5 Star”...”

    All in all this is a great hotel in a great location (perhaps a little far from MRT if you don’t want to walk). It’s clean, quiet, and is staffed with great, friendly people. The bed was comfortable, and the view of the love river was excellent. The price I paid was an exceptional value for what it was, and I would definitely stay here again! But 5 Star? Eh... almost.... 4 definitely, maybe even 4 1/2. Not quite 5... Why? Well, the building is a bit old. Old style keys for the rooms instead of magnetic cards, paint showing its age in some places. The bathroom was a bit small with towel rack in the shower (which I’m not a fan of, and there was really no room anywhere else to put them) and the water temperature during my shower was slightly inconsistent. I got the American style breakfast delivered to my room (eggs, sausage, croissants, salad, coffee, and orange juice) but was a bit surprised to find no butter or jam for the croissants, no milk or cream for the coffee, and no ketchup for the eggs. Not a terrible breakfast, but I was a bit disappointed for NT$450. Definitely not a 5 star breakfast. If you’re a hotel connoisseur, you might want to consider somewhere else, but if you want to stay in a great hotel for a great price, look no further. I’ve stayed in the 85 tower hotel before, and it is of similar quality. The view from 85 is great, but Ambassador is right next to the love river and I found that location to be far superior.

    Very good hotel! TI had booked last-minute and had a very good price for the room I got. The people at the check in counter were very friendly! The location of the hotel is excellent. Near the Love River, nice place to go for a walk at night or in the morning. As some people noted, the hotel is a bit old here and there (e.g. uses real key instead of keycard). But no big issue. The elevators are fast and the breakfast and so on are all good.

    The embassador hotel Kaohsiung ”

    Staff is nice , keen to help and solve all the request even an early checking that we requested . Location is a bit far from central , especially if you take the MTR, it took about 15' to walk from City Council station .But if you prefer to take the bus that is so convenient as the bus stop is just opposite the hotel which take you everywhere within Kaohsiung city ... Breakfast was nice, a lot of variety but very conistent everyday . It would be nicer if they could change the menu daily so we don't get sick of eating the same food. However the hotel was good in overall . I would recommend it to my family and friends. ..

    Location, Service, Food

    Great service and food on top floor of this hotel. Beds a bit too hard but staff provided soft mattress. Solid place to stay. When in Kaohsiung, the Ambassador Hotel is much better place to stay than the over hyped and more expensive Grand Hi Lai or old Splendor Hotels. In fact, I'd skip the Grand Hi Lai as their Mgt team is terrible - with bugs/lice in beds at Grand Hi Lai, etc ... Never stay at Grand Hi Lai! Stay at Ambassador as it's a much better venue indeed.
