Great Value for Hotel”

Clean rooms, Fast internet, Good customer service

I stayed at Howard Plaza Hotel for 2 nights during my trip in Kaohsiung in May. I checked in pretty late due to flight schedules, upon arrival, the bell boy in the lobby directed me to the Reception/Lounge on the 21st floor to check-in. The staff was speedy and all the documents were ready and I was able to get to my room within 5 minutes. Though no staff offered to take our luggage to our room, the reception lady sent us off to the lift. The room is quite big, slightly on the old side, but for the price we got it for, it was acceptable. Though furniture and carpets look a bit old, the bed and the bathroom were reasonably clean with all basic toiletries provided. The wireless connection in the room was speedy and it was free of charge. One slight problem with the Howard Plaza Hotel is that it is a bit far from the metro station, around 10 minutes walk which was acceptable for May but may be quite annoying during the summer and rainy days with luggages. Buffet breakfast was included with the room rate and there were a variety of cuisines available along with fruits, coffee. Surprisingly, there was even ice-cream available in the morning. The hotel isn't too crowded during breakfast time and the staff are constantly collecting dishes and utensils to ensure guests had a clean table to eat as they return from the buffet area. There is a big night market close by, walking distance of 10 minutes as it is just opposite the metro station exit. Plenty of local food and drinks for an evening snacks, you can even walk back to the hotel and enjoy them in the room. Overall, the hotel room, staff and the food were great, the one major bad thing would be the hotel's slight distance from the metro station.

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.

Howard Plaza Excellent Value - Premium Service”

Luxurious Facilities, Fast Elevators, Fast Bellhop Staff

The Howard Plaza is an easy walking distance to the MRT (underground subway station). Rooms are a decent size, clean and well serviced. Shower stalls adequate with excellent water pressure and temperature control. The toilets are all equipped with electronic bidets, with various buttons and features. My derriere was pampered throughout my stay, to say the least. Taxis available at the front door and various convenience stores within close proximity from the hotel. Bell hops are pretty quick in opening your car doors, but quicker to solicit a fee for temporary parking. Beverages available at low cost in the Family Mart convenience store next to the hotel. Good wireless internet service within the hotels. A few varied TV channels available to view via IPTV. There are multitudes of local dining fare nearby, so don't be afraid to try. I would come back again to Howard Plaza!

A good place for relax after a long day travelling”

1. The swimming pool is awesome because no one is using it so I can swim in all ways. 2. The bar in the highest floor provides a panoramic view of Kaohsiung City. 3. Qualified restaurant and service.

Overall, a very pleasure stay at Howard Plaza Hotel, very clean, good service, and nice location as well. The price that we ordered is relatively cheap and it worthy every penny for it. Unlike other 5-star hotel overseas, I'm kinda disappointed in their department stores, which sells some local clothing that would be found in the chain stores, not really suitable for a 5-star hotel.

Used to stay at Howard Plaza Hotel Chain as the hotel always have good location which is either near the train station or near the places of interest. Always maintain the Howard Plaza standard that have nice & cosy room with good breadfast. This is important for business traveler which need to have nice room to rest. It takes less than 15mins by car from the train station. In all, it is a good hotel and value for money !

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.

Good location and friendly staff

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.

I merely selected the room where you can free access to the sky lounge and was really surprise with the package I received in return. My initial intention was just breakfast to be included for my booking and to checkout the sky lounge, the extra sum was not really a big deal and I ended with VIP checkin etc and a pretty huge room for my stay. Very value for money, will definitely be my first choice whenever I'm back to kaohsiung (I'm from Sg and my girlfriend is a Taiwanese and we made a pact to visit Kaoshiung at least once a year) ;)

I booked this hotel the day before my wife's birthday, we could only arrived Kaohsiung and checked in the hotel late at 23:30 that night. Beforehand, I had requested the hotel to order a bunch of flower and birthday cake and deliver them to my room at 0:00 for my wife and finally my wife received all such my surprise on time plus a birthday card with the greetings signed from all the staff in the administrative dept of the hotel. What's a sweet and warm hotel we did feel by staying in! Highly recommend to have a stay!

Value, comfort, quiet, wonderful art collection

I like the Howard chain of hotels. I've stayed many times at the Taipei facility over the years. it was my first visit to the Kaohsiung branch. All their hotels are around 30 years old now and are starting to show their age a bit in the styling and decorations. But, who cares if you are like me and appreciate being able to go to the top floor lounge and get to sit in authentic, original Arts and Crafts (Stickley) chairs to sip your gin tonic! I was told that the hotel's owner was an art collector. It shows!

My stay at Howard Plaza Kaohsiung”

I bought the stay at Howard Plaza from Agoda Singapore. In it's website. it's stated as Lounge Access as part of the conditions offered for that room type of a King bed room. However, when we checked in on 2/5, there was no lounge access for this deal and the room was not ready even though we arrived at 2.20pm. Upon check in, we noticed only 2 bottles of drinking water in the room & requested for an additional 2 bottles and an additional foam bath for our use. We were baffled and very disappointed when the staff stated that we need to pay for the drinking water and belittled the 5 star hotel standard that Agoda & the hotel have stated. After some reasoning, the staff relented and arranged for the items for our room. This have given us a bad impression of the service standards and staff training of the hotel as we have stayed in 4star and 5 star hotels in Taiwan during our trip and this is the first time we have faced such poor service standards.

Clean, functional.
Breakfast needs an upgrade.

This hotel sees a fair share of tour groups, and the vast breakfast spread seems geared toward the quantity-over-quality traveler. The food is a far cry from the offerings of the sister Howard Plaza in Taipei, but breakfast aside, the place is comfortable and well maintained. Location is convenient to the subway and train stations.
