Frequent travelers in Asia may be familiar with the "business hotel", which in Taiwan and China typically means small, no frills rooms with very limited space for luggage, designed for business travelers who plan to stay a night or two at most.
While the New Long Hotel doesn't transcend the genre, it is one of the best in its class. Although the wallpaper in the main stairwell is already looking a little tired, the decor is very modern and the rooms are quite appealing. The bathroom was clean and tidy, and the bed is comfortable. The wifi speed (apparently there is a dedicated router for every room) is superb and honestly better than I get at home.
Breakfast as of this review was a open-faced sandwich with some greens and fruit; it is probably a little more food than an average airline meal. There is also bread and jam if you are feeling a little more peckish. The coffee is freshly ground and brewed by the cup, and is excellent.
It is located within a 5 minute walk from Fengshan train station, but is a bit farther away from the Fengshan MRT stop, so keep that in mind if you're using mass transit. It may be a little hard to find the underground passage which crosses the train tracks with all the construction, but there is a side passage directly to the west of the train which leads to the passageway. In the neighborhood there are a few convenience stores and a large RT-Mart supermarket well within 10 minutes walk; there are small local restaurants in the area as well as some chain restaurants on the 1F of RT-Mart. I believe they also have a few bicycles for the convenience of their guests, although I did not use them myself.
The service is very pleasant and professional, from the front desk to the gentlemen and ladies at breakfast. Overall if you are in Kaohsiung on business or on a budget the New Long Hotel is a great choice.
