Ambassador Kaohsiung is a standard four star hotel facing Love River. The rooms are nice and clean, one of our rooms is facing the river so it's really nice to look over the river at night when the light is on. Everything is up to standard however I don't feel there is a unique flair to it. On a side... More

I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel in Kaohsiung for 4 nights on a business trip. Check-in was quick and efficient. The English-speaking hotel staff was friendly and able to provide accurate and useful information to my questions about Kaohsiung. The room was comfortable, clean and fairly large. The bed was clean and comfortable - I was able to sleep well... More

The advantages of this place are that it is near Love River, it has its own restaurants, and it has English-speaking staff. I stayed here for a few days, checked out for the weekend as I was visiting another city, and then came back to spend a few more days. On both check-ins, I had to wait for my room... More

The room was great, bed was comfy, and we had a view of the river. The location was good - close to the MRT and walking distance to a few places. My complaints were that the breakfast had limited western options and limited seating. Plus, I booked this hotel specifically because it had a pool, but we couldn't get in... More

This hotel is right next to the love river, subway station is about 10 minutes walk away. Our room is clean but small. The view outside our room is fantastic.

1. Rooms a smaller than I expected. They said double rooms can accommodate 4 people, but the space is so small, even to put 2 luggages. And they provide no luggage holder. 2.

I traveled with my parents and stayed one night at this hotel. This hotel has a very good location, central, and the subway station is within walking distance.
