I spent two nights at Legend and I had restful time. My king room was big, with a clean bathroom - tub. I thought that the room/hall murals were a bit kitschy but I stayed at another hotel in Kaoshiung and it had a similar feel. However, service at the hotel was very good. The reception staff was always friendly and helpful, and they spoke good English.

The food was filling but nondescript, but considering price, breakfast was still fair.

The hotel is close to an MRT stop - City Council - and not too far from Formosa Boulevard. I also didn't feel unsafe walking around on my own at night. It's a few blocks from Liouhe night market, and although the market does feel a bit touristy, I still found it convenient to go there for food.

I enjoyed my stay at the Legend. I was disappointed when I couldn't book there again and had to stay at Jia's inn down the street.

The previous reviews are pretty much correct. The decor isn't thrilling but the value for money is amazing. The location is central and convenient with both a night market around the corner and two metro stations. Also, It's also not very difficult to walk to many of the sights including the ferry terminal and the shopping district(s).

The staff speaks excellent English and are super helpful.
The breakfast won't wow you but it fills you up.
The rooms are massive with really large spacious bathrooms. I could seriously live in the shower alone!
The bed is pretty hard, but on the positive; it's really big.

Overall, we had a great stay at legends. It's much nicer than other hotels in taiwan that I've paid US $160 o night for. I wish all hotels were like legends!

Two days before we are due to visit Kaohsiung, we received an email from legend hotel detailing how we could get to the hotel. It was impressive as it provided both a map as well as photographs on ways to get to hotel.
Hotel was renovated(I think) and adapted from a old shophouse but rooms are freshly painted and ambience is pleasant . My family and I unfortunately stayed one night in Kaohsiung only so we were unable to fully appreciate the charm of the city.
Hotel staff introduced us several places to visit; we took metro(2 stops)to port ( revitalized ) and really enjoyed our time there and were fortunate to view the current international steel sculpture exhibition.the revival of the pdelapidated port to a contemporary public space is most commendable
Back to the hotel, it is truly value for money, it is walking distance to shops and night market....and yes, there's an x-box at the lounge for the younger lads to amuse themselves.....just in case they are yet unable to appreciate such a beautiful place.....

This is the best hotel stay!

If you arriving via rail, upon arrival call the hotel and they will dispatch the van to pick you up from the Post Office which is located to your right when you exit from the railway station.

Hotel provides self service laundry service located on the 9th floor.
Room is chic, neat, spacious with complimentary Pepsi and instant noodles. Wifi connection is superb.
Bathroom is spacious too with a bathtub, overhead rain shower.
Location is 5 mins walk to the most famous LiouHe night market.
City Council Train station exit 4 is less than 10 mins walk
7-11 is less than 300m away

I will choose to stay in this stay again in next visit to Kaohsiung!
