Very Relaxing Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 30, 2010

We stayed in the Ambassador Hotel, Kaohsiung which is located on the Love River. This was a good location as we could walk to Central Park metro in around 10 minutes or City Council Metro in around 7 minutes. We were very handy for the Love River and associated sights. There were several restaurants nearby including the Outback Steakhouse where we had a lovely meal. There was a Family Mart and Seven Eleven close to the hotel.

Staff at the Ambassador were very helpful and friendly.

Our room had a fantastic view over Love River. The room was very clean and comfortable. We could hear music from the boats on the river, but this did not go on late. Our room was quiet at night.

Our room had a safety deposit box and tea/coffee making facilities, though the coffee was of the three in one variety - no good for someone like me who drinks black unsweetened coffee.

The hotel had a Sichuan restaurant on the 20th floor and a Sky Lounge up there, too. There was a Cantonese restaurant on the second floor and another restaurant on the first (ground floor). They all looked fine but we did not use them - too many outside choices of places to eat.

The hotel had a lovely pool. It's open from 7am to 7pm and its season starts on April 1st and continues to October 31st. It is an outdoor pool. We had the pool to ourselves every morning of our stay. The hotel also had a fitness centre and sauna. You have to pay to use the sauna.

I'd be very happy to stay in this hotel again.

Ambassador Hotel Kaohsiung is the best hotel with the best view in the city.
It's located at beautiful Love River. You open your window and can see the river nearby and harbour in distance.

Ambassador provides standard nice breakfast, swimming pool, sauna room, spa service, internet room ( 30min gratis) etc.

Avoid Ambassador

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

Stayed at the hotel for months with work. You would think with long term guests you would get better service but no. Staff seemed to do everything to be unhelpful to us.

Also as of 2005 they have renovated the pool. Now it is useless as a pool and is more a centrepiece fountain to the cafe area that surrounds it. They even took down the walls surrounding the pool so that you are on show to half of the city as you try and use it! Pool is also tiny!

Breakfast has made numerous people sick, Sausages mainly to blame as they are constantly undercooked.

Only nice people are the bellboys.

If you plan to stay anytime around lantern festival DONT the whole area is a mess at this time

Got special price only NTD 2000/night + breakfast.
Very reasonable price :D

Unique Quality: You can choose love river view room which is one of the interesting spots in kaohsiung. Of course, the price will more expensive.

Very nice but hard beds

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 28, 2004

Only spent one night here but our room had a beautiful view of the Love River. The room was clean and had everything you'd need - tv, fridge, slippers, etc but the bed was Japanese style - very hard. That's my only complaint.

Breakfast buffet had a lot of American choices as well as more traditional Taiwanese selections.

Unique Quality: I'm not sure what the price is as I didn't pay it, we were guests of a Taiwanese group.
