Review of KKS Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Apr 2024
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Jan 2024 while visiting nearby Taroko NP. This was a short walk (5 min) from both the train station and bus station, so that was the main attraction, along with the cost, when we booked this stay. We arrived late at night by train from Taipei, but had no trouble finding our way here. The only unusual part of the check in is that the actual hotel room was across the street in a different building, but not a big deal. The hotel and the room are not new but are well maintained. Room size was very good and the bathroom was decent (great hot water/water pressure, loved the bidet). A nice surprise was the wonderful Chinese breakfast that was included for one our two mornings. Quality and variety was quite unexpected. This was probably one of the lowest priced hotels we looked at when planning our two week trip but easily one of our best choices.

The hotel was nice with friendly staff. The breakfast had a large selection of food and drink. Wish it was a bit more kid friendly though. Laundry services were free which was a huge bonus. Location is good as well. Only down fall was that the beds were incredibly hard.

We stayed there for 3 nights while visiting Taroko, the room was decent but the bed was rather firm. Not sure if the walls were thin or this group of old people were particularly loud but it can get quite noisy. Breakfast was a good spread.

You get your moneys worth!We stayed at building V.7th floor family room.2 queens size bed.clean room with out the dusty smell some 3 stars hotel have.No smelly carpet thank you😀.Its not an old or a new hotel either but the room is well maintained.The bed sheets and pillows are ok too.The comfort room and shower room is ok and well kept too.Just bring your own toiletries bec they provided a shampoo and body wash all in one.bring your own toothbrush theirs is not dependendable.I guess bec the price is ok so they have cost cut some provisions.
Foods is little on the downside.No American breakfast.Plain Chinese breakfast every morning..I’m giving 4 stars for the price of the room and cleanliness.

Stayed for 2 nights last Dec ‘18 at KKS hotel. Check in was smooth.

Hotel is located close to Hualien Train station - so it’s easy to locate. They’re several blocks of KKS all within next to each other.
It’s area is at the quieter part of Hualien so do take that into consideration as places like Dongdamen or the main street is about 10/15 mins via taxi or you could cycle there.

Rooms were nicely sized, basic and clean.
Ours had a nice city view.
Slept well for both nights.

Hotel provides free laundry (located offsite at the carpark though) and breakfast (nothing too luxurious). Bicycles can be borrowed for 2 hours.

KKS also has partnerships with tour groups, we opted for a day trip to Taroko - 700NTD per person, was nice

All in all was satisfied with KKS Hotel’s stay.

we booked through trip.com and it was usd35 per night including breakfast for 2 person.
The room its not so big but better that the business hotel in tokyo. Room very clean, free mineral bottle water everyday. The breakfast is just ok but for what I paid its totally worth every penny and more. Highly recommended budget hotel.
p.s. the hotel provide free bicycle rental for 2hours gives enough time to go to the night market.
