KINGSHIP HOTEL KAOHSIUNG

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.

Aside from the paintings, the only factor worth mentioning is the convenient location. It's very close to Love River and just walking distance to most local eateries, fine shops, bakeries and a convenience store (7-Eleven). The hotel is easily accessible by car and it is only 3 minutes walking distance away from MRT Yanchengpu station.

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.

  2. I agree with you. This hotel do not deserve a 4 star rating.

    I saw from the photo that the TV is positioned above the refrigerator. This is rather unusual.I don't like this arrangement.

    But I agree, hotel location is very important. This is also a factor when I choose a hotel of my choice

  3. I love traveling. Sometimes, I don't mind very much the kind of hotel I am in as long as I get a nice view from the window.
    Thanks for sharing the photos to us. I enjoyed looking at them. :)

  4. Wow, nice photos of the place you've visited. I think this hotel is real good except for the food - maybe not palatable enough for our Filipino taste.
    Thanx for sharing...

  5. Hi Asian Traveller!
    Sorry for the long absence! But don’t you think it was a great vacation; some very busy weeks and just a few days off... ;)
    This looks a great place to stay; and not expensive... ;)
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter is still turning around Iceland. Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!

  6. maybe the hotel standard has dropped. if this hotel is very old then it must be very 'good' back in those days.

  7. That's a funny sounding name for a hotel. It's facade doesn't really match what's inside, especially the room - a TV on top of a ref?
