Best Hotel in Kaohsiung, period.
Although the hotel rooms are showing its age, but the killer view (high floor view in every room guaranteed), amazing buffet breakfast, and the overall room / public area cleanness are still THE BEST in Kaohsiung, period. To me, it's definitely a 5+ star hotel with a 4 star room rate.

Very comfortable stay - massive beds!
We stayed in the deluxe family room which was a gorgeous room, and because we were leaving early morning (before breakfast started) the staff made us up some lunch box's to take with us. Nice live music in the lobby on a night too, with a great cake place to eat from. Good facilities, quite expensive but I guess you're paying for the quality and the location - right above a massive shopping mall.

Good night
Nice Vue, comfortable room... But it had no bathrobe in the room and the scale was broken. The location of the pool could be renovated: faded walls. Breakfast is scheduled to end at 10:30. I came at 10:10 and they warned me that it ended at 10:20 ... And When I arrived, he was already missing half the original choice for breakfast....

A bit disappointed
The room I booked is different from the photos. The room I had is more like superior room, but the room I booked is deluxe.
