In a nutshell, an old hotel with classic flair. Everything was average and above except for: Elevators(to the executive rooms), Breakfast selection, and the swimming pool(or how they ran it). I paid extra and stayed on the Executive floor for added comfort but there was no such thing because the elevators were always crowded with people going to the restaurants...

I've stayed here three years in a row on conferences and it has not disappointed. The rooms are large and well appointed, though starting to show their age now. The breakfast buffet is pretty good. The bathroom is great, and if you are high enough up, the views are fantastic as well. Wifi is not free in the room, which...

I stayed at Grand Hi-Lai Hotel in Kaohsiung for 1 night in May 2014. The hotel is old-fashioned in design and decor -- like Taiwan of the 1970's/1980's. There is an archaic TV in the bathroom that still seems to work fine. As with most of Taiwan, the service is very good and the Facility was kept clean and in...

Upscale hotel, lots of business meetings held here. We had a corner room which had views on two sides of the building, however we were placed behind the elevators and we could hear the wind howling as the elevator raced up and down. Room was clean, bathroom was not the biggest when compared with other rooms.

The room itself was great. It was clean with great views but I would have preferred a smaller property. The hotel is huge with restaurants up on the 43 or 44th floors. Values in the restaurant weren't that great but there's not much in the neighborhood and the city is kind of dump.

The hotel is very big and there is a shopping centre below it. The room is comfortable and clean, and the service is very friendly. Overall, the hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever been to. I would certainly recommend this to anyone.

Stayed here with family while on vacation. Everything was excellent - great room (spacious, well-appointed, great view, daily complementary plate of fresh fruit), the staff & courteous service, and the included buffet breakfast were all top-notch, world class (lots of foreigners stay here for conferences). But of all the hotels, hostels, and B & Bs we stayed in Taiwan over...

First trip to Kaohsiung on business. This place was very nice by my American Standards. Everything was clean and comfortable as expected. Staff was friendly and helpful, most had a basic grip on english, lucky for me, as i have no clue on local language. Stayed on 41st floor, Was very nice with a great view of the harbor. This...

This is my hotel of choice even there are many other newer hotels in Kaohsiung. Simple reason, you get the legendary Japanese service in this hotel, staff are well trained and always willing to help and everything works. Also love their hot spring which I will go daily whenever I stay here. Breakfast spread is great and the other restaurants...
