Kaohsiung Airport lies around 9 km / 6 miles south of Kaohsiung city. From the airport we hopped into a metered taxi to Kingship Hotel. The traffic flow wasn't much of a hassle, and we finally arrived to our hotel in less than 20 minutes.
One thing you'll notice about the hotel's exterior is the European style building.
There's a PC system with free internet access in the lobby for the guests.
What's unique about Kingship Hotel is the fine collection of more than 250 awarded oil paintings from National Taiwan Oil Painting Exhibition. These paintings are displayed and lining up throughout the hallways, restaurants, and in the lobby.
Our room was Elegance Single (1 Double bed) that cost NT$ 2,350.00 per night (around US$ 72.00 / Php 3,456.00). The room was so simple but decent enough to stay. A free internet plugs, tea bags and mineral water were also provided.
A few Chinese food varieties were served on the buffet tables. Sadly, it wasn't even enough to stimulate our appetite. The foods were bland.
Overall, this 4-star business hotel turned out to be mediocre. It wasn't as elegant as we thought it would be. It was more like a three star, not a four. Plus there are no concierge and bellboys so you have to take charge of your luggage.
Kingship Hotel Kaohsiung is located at 98, Cisian 3rd Rd. Yancheng District, Kaohsiung, at the corner of Wu-fu Rd. and Cisian 3rd Rd.
