Grand”

This southern “twin” of the majestic, classically-styled Taipei Grand Hotel, Taiwan’s first five-star offering, is about half its size and historical significance. Nevertheless, it certainly has its own charm and majestic presence. The hotel is situated on its own acreage along with an accompanying lake, which is well worth a afternoon stroll for its serenity and nostalgia, harkening back to an era when life was less frantic and simple. Although the hotel has seen better days, it still maintains a certain charm. It is quite a distance from the city center, beaches, shopping malls, night markets and transportation hubs. The suites are relatively barren, but well-maintained with classical Chinese furniture and a huge balcony. The hotel also lacks many five-star amenities and services, although the restaurants and breakfast have high standards. These days, there are more luxurious offerings from pricier competitors but of course, that’s not what staying here is about.

A historical treasure ”

This building is gorgeous and cannot be beat. The balcony was wonderful and I loved having my tea and coffee there in the morning as well as enjoying the view of the city skyline at night. It’s away from the main part of the city and located on beautiful grounds so it’s also quiet. The architecture is grand and awe inspiring. Slightly smaller and less kept up than the Taipei sister hotel but truly a treasure. You feel like you’re staying in a piece of history. The pool was gorgeous as well. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. We had some pastries in the cafe in the lobby which were great. The room was spacious. While the bathroom is older, it was very clean. Again, you’re staying in such a beautiful building and with a great balcony and view, so anything “older” just seems like a great trade for what you gain. The room provided tea, coffee, slippers, and toiletries. I felt so lucky to be able to stay in such a beautiful hotel.

Hotel with a unique ambiance”

We stayed at Grand Hotel because of its historical setting and proximity to Chengching Lake where did most of our biking. The architectural feature of the hotel is an Instagram/pictorial haven. They have very parking spaces and a boardwalk leading to the lake. They provide their guests with complimentary entrance tickets to the lake as well. The rooms are big, however our balcony view is partly obstructed with the Main Entrance canopy (better avoid this room and the rooms next to the gym). But we appreciate so much the staff. Even the doormen were so kind enough to look after our bikes. Most of them speak good english. We are looking forward to our next stay at Grand Hotel in Kaohsiung!

value for money and very helpful staff”

stayed at the Grand Hotel, Taipei before hence when in Kaohsiung, we choose the Grand Hotel again for sure and indeed we're happy with the friendly staff. Pros:- helpful and friendly staff, refill water at every floor, spacious room with balcony to enjoy the view, good selection of choices for breakfast and free shuttle bus to the nearest Weiwuying MRT station. Cons: really need to consider upgrading the bathroom.

Very good but location may be a problem”

We stayed here for a nostalgia trip because we use to live and work in Kaohsiung. There are good lake views and the beds are comfortable. It's a 30 min taxi ride into town in rush hour which may account for the hotel's decline in popularity. Don't go to Kaohsiung for a holiday !

Came here with my wife for a weekend getaway. Everything here is a positive. It's one of the coolest hotels I have ever stayed at. The staff, room, facilities (the pool is fantastic), and the food is incredible. Strong wifi in the rooms enabled me to do work without a problem. Everything was clean and the staff made us feel at home. The only downside was the location as there is not much around the hotel to do or see. If we had a car, it might be different. Highly, highly recommended.

Very good”

This is a resort hotel with historical marks. Therefore, visitors need to be prepared that it is quite remote and transportation can be difficult for those without cars/motor cycles. There's only one local bus that runs to the hotel during the day, and they used to miss schedule. Rooms that face the lake side (i.e. back side of the hotel) have gorgeous views, spacious and comfortable beds. Yet, privacy may be an issue as its balconies (of same side-rooms are all linked with just a symbolic wooden partition.) And room's solitude can be seriously disturbed (up till 10pm at night) whenever there is functions held at the pool side. Wifi is a bit slow and sockets for PCs are inadequate. Shower facilities are old, somewhat rusty with low water pressure. Free breakfast has limited and unchanged contents which may not meet international standard. However, frontline staff are friendly, courteous, responsive and helpful. It's people that we love most and may revisit in future.

Okay for a short break”

I stayed here for a short holiday break with my family. The room was spacious and clean. Great view over Kaohsiung, especially at night, though it's quite far from any local amenities so it's best if you have a car. The breakfast is good. Most of the staff were very friendly though one or two of them could perhaps benefit from customer service training. The pool is great though, and Chengching lake is just a short walk away.

Would lose out to newer 5-star hotels. Also at city outskirts. However, the stay-only deal is quite reasonably priced for travellers to want to try out living in a palace.

The hotel is set in all red chinese theme. It is a little old but otherwise is comfortable to live in. I especially like the well polished wooden floor which feel good with my bare foot. Facilities are geared towards the health conscious. Located 10 min drive away from the nearest public train. Recommend take a morning stroll in a environment full of greenery and fresh air.
