Old Hotel Feb 11, 2015
For some reason, we could not book this hotel through the internet, as the internet keeps come up with an error message every time we try to book it. Finally, I just write down the hotel address and draw a map on a piece of paper since the hotel location is close to Kaoshiong Main train station and within walking distant – around five minutes walk.
The hotel located straight from the front of Kaoshiong Main station, around a couple block on the left side of the street. The hotel has a big sign outside the building.
The reception speak English well and really helpful. We get the same price as per website in the internet. It cost TWD 1,200 (usd 41) per night with breakfast. The reception also help us to find and negotiate taxi fare for the whole day sightseeing the next day to go up the mountain.
We have a room on the higher floor and the room itself quite strange, and really old. It has Japanese style design, with step on the floor from the room hallway to the bed, and the mattress on the floor, a cheap plastic sofa which looks quite dirty, small and broken cupboard, old refrigerator, television, and a water pump inside the room. However, I think the water pump is not working as when I press it, the water is neither cool, nor hot. It smell like someone was smoking in the room. After open the windows and let a fresh air in, the smell was not bad.
Since the room has a window facing the main street, it has city view, but it was a bit noisy from the traffic outside. In addition to this, there is a humming sound inside the room which makes me a bit headache and difficult to sleep at night time. I think the sound probably come from the air condition unit which install in the whole building.
The bathroom has a bathtub for shower. However for some strange reason, there were no shower curtain in the bathtub, so the whole bathroom floor get flooding after shower.
I find the towels were too thin and well used and no floor matt and ended up I used the face cloth for floor matt.
The breakfast was not worth going in. Basically it was only a couple pieces of cold toast with fried eggs. You can help yourself to jam and butter and coffee from the machine.
The elevator was quite slow and no air condition, so a bit stuffy inside.
Plenty of cafes and local restaurant near the hotel and Kaoshiong main train station. The Liuhe Night Market is close by and within easy walking distant – only one block from the hotel and located opposite it (on the right side) – around six minutes walk.
Overall, it was a budget hotel and okay for a night or two, but no more. Personally, I think it is better to pay extra and find a better room than this hotel.
