    Good services at a low price”

    Convenient location, good services, comfortable room

    The hotel is located in a convenient location. It only takes about 3 minutes to walk to Kaohsiung Main Station. And it takes around 10 minutes to walk to Liouhe Tourist Night Market. The service was good. When we arrived in the hotel, it was too early and the room wasn’t available yet. We checked in and put down our luggage in the reception. The staff gave us a map of Kaohsiung and told us a little bit about travelling around Kaohsiung when we checked in. When we came back at night, our luggage has already been sent to our room. We only needed to take a room card from the reception before we returned to our room. The size of the room was fair. But the size of the toilet was very big. It was considerate to have a water dispenser in the room. Overall the room was comfortable and the services were excellent given such a low price.

    4 stars hotel at the price of a 2 stars hotel”

    The room is big and clean and comes with high speed wifi

    I had a very pleasant stay at Life Hotel. I didn't think the hotel room can be so impressive when I first arrived at the location. The bathroom was huge and hotel came with high speed wifi. It was really thoughtful of the hotel as the room came prepared with light snack/cracker. This hotel is also very near to KaoHsiung Main Station, 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel staff are friendly. I'll definitely stay in this hotel again if i go KaoHsiung.

We highly recommend Life Hotel to all travellers abd we will surely stay in this hotel when we come back to Kaohsiung.

    Good price, good location and clean

    The Life Hotel is located near Kaohsiung MRT station and within 5 minutes from the station to hotel. The check-in was fast and staffs were friendly and helpful. They recommended the night markets and area to visit were wonderful. The room was clean and comfort with a good size. Wifi was working good and fast. The only thing disappointed is no normal hotel breakfast provides. I strongly recommended this budget hotel to my friends and will visit again in due course.

    Would stay there again...”

    Friendly/helpful front desk staff, very close to MRT, complimentary bottled water & snacks

    I had a great stay at Life Hotel. The room was very comfortable, the staff members were all friendly and helpful, and you could even eat the snacks and drink the bottled water without getting charged like other hotels often do. The only down side to my stay was that my room had ants, and not just on the floor. Thankfully they were not in the bed, and they were just tiny sugar ants looking for food, but it was kind of gross picking up a mug for some hot tea and seeing all these little ants on the counter scurrying away. They also were on the fake leather couch and on the floor. Since the front desk staff person didn't speak English, I shot some video on my phone and then showed it to her. Then another guest translated for us and she offered to move me to another room, but since it was my last night and I knew I wouldn't be in the room much (and there was no guarantee another room would be ant-free), I opted to just stay in that room. So at least they were happy to remedy the problem. I would still stay there again... especially for the price I got through agoda.com on a major holiday weekend.

    Location location location!

    This hotel was chosen because of its value, granted there are a lot of other similarly looking "motels" in the vicinity. At first glance, this hotel looks pretty shady and secluded but once entered, we found that this is one probably one of the best if not best budget hotel in this area. Easily accessible 15mins MRT ride from the Kaohsiung Airport, less than 5 mins walk from Kaohsing Main Station and less than 10mins walk from Formosa Boulevard MRT (also the LiuHe Night market) this place is a no brainer for traveller who seeks convenience and go around shopping and for the night markets (there are at least 3 in the area). Hotel is quite spacious, very clean and the staff are super friendly, they even let us check in 2 hours early instead of their usual 3pm check in time. High speed internet Wifi is provided in the lobby and in the room. While there is simple breakfast provided, our package does not include one so i could not comment on it. Anyway, who eats breakfast in the hotel when you can have so much more out there? :) On the last day, our flight was due to depart at night time so they even offered to look after our luggage (after checking out) while we went for our final round of shopping. Overall, good experience and highly recommended! Would definitely return again.

    Spacious, Friendly Staff and Great location

    Great experience. Surprise to see the large room with comfortable bed, LCD TV, bathroom, rain shower, mini bar, water dispenser and so on in a great location. It is located just opposite Kaohsiung Main Station for MRT & Train and also the Kaohsiung Bus Station. What Life Hotel needs to improve are:- Bathroom - insufficient brightness, very low light. It seems eerie to take bath after sunset. Please brighten up the bathroom. Internet - Wifi signal is too poor in the room. Please enhance the wifi coverage.

    Good location and service, room so so. ”

    Location ; Service

    The hotel is in a good location, walking distance to both Formosa Boulevard Station (15 mins) and Kaohsiung Main Station (10 mins). Between them are also walkable night markets.The room we booked looks comfortable, but the bed and pillows were too soft. We had stiff necks and backaches every morning. Though this serves to enhance the effects of our massage at the end of the trip. There are no windows in the room, so you won't be able to tell if it's morning or night without your alarms. The bathroom is large and clean, but water pressure is small, and water comes out brown when you first open the tap, run it several seconds it'll get clear. Tap water in Taiwan is not drinkable, so good thing that the room comes with 4 complimentary bottles of water.The shower is equipped with massage jets but as the water pressure is too small and the lack of maintenance leave the nozzles clogged, hence the massage jets becomes a tickle instead. Service was very good throughout the trip, it helped that we could speak Chinese and understood when we needed directions/ recommendations. Staff were also helpful and allowed us to store our luggage with them when we checked out to go to Kenting for few days. Generally I find Life Hotel a value for money option for budget and non fussy travellers.

    Great hotel with good rate.”

    Excellent location, walking distance to train, metro and bus stations.
    I was not provided breakfast and I am unsure if they serve that at all.

    To put in a nutshell, I think this hotel is excellent for its price. The location is superb as one can access trains (Kaohsiung train station), metro and buses (regional and local bus terminals)very easily. Just a short walk, one can find fast food and restaurants serving a variety of food. During the night, one can even walk back to the hotel from the Liuhe 'tourist' night market (Formosa Boulevard station)as it is just one metro station away from the hotel. Another thing worth mentioning here is that the bathroom is very spacious and showering is truly a very pleasant time. I will definitely come back here for my next trip.

    It was an fantastic stay at Life Hotel. The room is big and spacious, completed with a large toilet/bathroom. Life Hotel is surrounded by eateries, beverage/food stalls and convenience shop. Liu He Night Market is a mere 15 mins stroll away, not forgetting the Metro Train/Bus Terminals just across the main road. The hotel scores well in terms of pricing too.

The receptionist at the front desk was really friendly and attentive, showing us the room and also recommending us to good food around the hotel and some insider information on where to visit, which we really appreciated. Life Hotel is only a stone's throw away from the main train and bus station and also near other bus stations where you can go to Kenting from. Would stay in this hotel again if I ever do return here in the future!

    Room Type: Double, Room #307, 2 Nights”

    Location to MRT station, huge toilet & strong shower

    Firstly, the room type offered on Agoda, 'Double' corresponds to the cheaper 'Delicately Room' room type listed on the hotel's website The hotel's location is really superb. You don't even require a cab to bring you to the hotel from Kaohsiung railway station. It is really a 3-minute walk as represented on their website. Walking to the famous Liu He night market only takes just about 10 minutes. There is also a smaller one nearby, Nan Hua night market. The hotel utilises electronic key-card for its room door locks. Secondly, the room facilities for the room we stayed in. The room size is rather spacious given the cheap room rates. There is already a leather couch for 2 in the room, yet with our 2 large pieces of luggage, there was still ample walkabout space in the room. The bed sits lower to the ground as compared to other hotels, and rests one side against the wall which gives a cosy feel. The room has no window, no carpet-flooring, no safe deposit box, no laundry services but has a small fridge and a small wardrobe. Wifi strength is really weak and erratic hence a LAN cable will be provided for those using their personal computers in the room. The most negative point about the room was the air conditioning. It was almost non-operational and even the staff admits to the problem (apparently only for my particular room). An electric fan was then put in the room promptly to make up for the weak aircon. The toilet was exceptionally huge such that a bathtub could have been installed to make use of the vacant space. There is a window in the toilet perhaps for ventilation. The best part of the toilet was the shower space and shower system. The shower is glass-partitioned and the shower comprises of an overhead shower, a handheld shower, and 8 mini balls which eject beams of water horizontally perhaps to wash your body. Amazingly, you can utilise 2 of the 3 methods to shower simultaneously at any one time. Lastly, no issue with cleanliness.

The room even has a folder explaining the different attractions in greater detail. Definitely useful for us becos we didnt rly plan kaohsiung before coming. Facilities was very good, the bed, toilet etc. only thing was that the lift was rather small so those with big groups might have to make multiple trips up with their luggage but other than that, excellent!
